Here's How to Make Getting Wrinkles Suck Less
If you're worried about developing—or improving—aging skin, it's time to stop sleeping on anti-wrinkle products. Not only will they keep your skin hydrated and clear, but they can actually improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and splotchy coloring that give away older skin. If you're going to invest in any type of grooming product, it should be this one. Whether you want to prevent aging or reverse damage, there's something out there for you. Here's where to start.
1| L'Oreal RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream
If you're just getting into the anti-aging game, look for a simple, no-fuss formula. This L'Oreal one is a night cream, meaning you slather it on before bed, and it'll do its job overnight.
2| Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator
Dry, washed-out skin can give the appearance of age just as much as wrinkles can. Clinique for Men's daily face moisturizer is super hydrating, which in turn brightens up dry spots and makes fine lines look filled in.
3| Kiehl's Age Defender Moisturizer
There's something super satisfying about Kiehl's Age Defender line, which has a way of making your skin feel firmer just upon application. It looks even better with time, too.
4| Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer
Jack Black's moisturizer uses a combination of blue algae extract and sea parsley, which work together to even out your skin's appearance and minimize any wrinkles. But this formula is preventative, too; the SPF will help protect skin against additional damage.
5| Lab Series Max LS Matte Renewal Lotion
Lab Series feels like a science experiment on your face, in the best way possible. Its Max LS lotion is crafted for aging, oily skin. Some anti-aging products can feel too heavy or create too much build-up for oil-prone skin. This one is light and powerful enough to prevent aging without clogging you up.
6| Origins Plantscription Powerful Lifting Cream
Origins is your perfect level up into anti-aging products. If you've been paying more attention lately, or have only been using moisturizers every so often, this is a solid everyday pick to keep up the routine.
7| Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Anti-Aging Moisturize
Dr. Dennis Gross brings out the big gun: retinol. Retinol is supposed to encourage new skin cells to grow, which would promote younger-looking skin.
8| Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Night Crème
Getting an anti-wrinkle night cream is one of the easiest ways to incorporate the step without it feeling excessive. Before bed, wash your face and cover it in this night cream a few times a week.
9| Erno Laszlo White Marble Translucence Cream
Wrinkles and dryness aside, another big aging giveaway is uneven skin tone. What that means, exactly, is different areas of your face not matching each other. For example, having dry or splotchy-looking cheeks or a sallow-looking forehead. This cream helps even those out, so your face looks smooth.
10| SK-II Essential Power Rich Cream
If you have dry or sensitive skin, SK-II is for you. It's especially adept at addressing sagging skin, while at the same time pumping in moisture so that any dryness fills out.
11| La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream
La Mer does not mess around when it comes to skincare. It's basically like getting dermatologist-level treatment but at home and every day. This one is especially good in colder months, when your skin needs extra attention.
