No matter how old you are, the term wrinkle cream sounds like it's meant for your grandmother. But TBH, the earlier you start taking care of your skin, the better! This means incorporating anti-ageing products into your skincare routine, drinking enough water, eating right, and staying out of the sun, whether you're in your 20s or are older than 60.
And while there are thousands of products out there that promise so many things, we're narrowing down the list to let you in on the five things you need to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Read on.
- 01. A hyaluronic acid creme
- 02. A collagen cream
- 03. A wrinkle-corrector cream
- 04. A sunscreen
- 05. An eye cream
01. A hyaluronic acid creme
Did you know that around 50% of the body’s total hyaluronic acid is present in the skin? Changes in this amount, mostly due to UV exposure, can lead to the formation of wrinkles. But here's the good news — hyaluronic acid can significantly decrease the depth of wrinkles and enhance skin firmness and elasticity. If you’re uncertain about what to opt for, start easy with the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Gel Creme, which is infused with hyaluronic acid and pentavitin, both of which will keep your skin hydrated, moisturised, and supple.
02. A collagen cream
While the topical treatments won't exactly renew the collagen in your skin, a good collagen cream will still give you a hydrating, firming boost that will make your skin feel youthful and revitalised. Opt for the St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer for a boost of collagen. Enriched with collagen and elastin proteins, this helps moisturise and soften your skin while keeping it glowing and youthful-looking skin.
03. A wrinkle-corrector cream
If you're looking for a cure and not prevention, a wrinkle-corrector cream like the Pond's Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream SPF 18 PA++ is your best bet! The hardworking product contains retinol-c complex to reduce wrinkles, bio-actives to renew skin cells, and contains powerful anti-ageing tech that will have your skin glowing for days.
04. A sunscreen
Whether it's sunny or cloudy, a good sunscreen can prevent a lot of future damage to the skin. We're talking about hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, of course. It's always best to start young because your skin will thank you for it in the future, and there's no better way to start than with the Lakmé Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Lotion Sunscreen. The high-performance sunscreen will block up to 97% of harmful UVB sun rays and take care of your skin for years to come.
05. An eye cream
A worth-it splurge, eye creams help with fine lines and wrinkles in the most sensitive area of the face — the under eyes. Opt for the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm Eye & Lip Cream, which will help combat lines around the delicate eye area. With the antioxidant properties of vitamins C and E helping improve resilience and scavenging free radicals, the cream acts as a protective barrier against further assault. Its vast list of botanical extracts helps firm, smooths skin texture, and minimises the appearance of fine lines. Ageing, who?
