Yikes! Wrinkle Creams Don't Really Work

Yikes! Wrinkle Creams Don't Really Work

I consider myself a wrinkle cream agnostic - I am not sure they work, but in case they do I want to be using them.

Well my agnostic bubble has burst. I just read a devastating report on CNN that wrinkle creams are utterly ineffective. The price doesn't matter, cheap or expensive, the best performers only reduced wrinkles by about 10 percent - and that 10 percent change is not visible to the naked eye. In essence, you would have to squint your eyes to try to see the change, and thereby make even more wrinkles.

So gals, it looks like sunscreen is going to be your new best friend. Apply it religiously. Wear hats! Quit smoking since it interferes with the skin's ability to generate new cells. Drink more water - that is what my dermatologist recommended to me.

If they can put a man on the moon, I think they should be able to come up with wrinkle cream that has a better than 10 percent return. Don't you?

I love the sun. I do use sunscreen. ___________________________________________ I'm very, very lucky. I love the different elements in my life. Angelina Jolie

Yeah, I use sunscreen and generally try to stay out of the sun. I'll moisturize, but I'm too lazy to slavishly slather stuff all over my face before I sleep. And I'd rather spend the dough on good food:)

How can they test that? Maybe not getting rid of wrinkles you already have, but I'm sure they help prevent them. Or I'd assume moistuirization in general, perhaps not specifically an anti-wrinkle cream.
