Anti-aging creams

Are they not the biggest fraud of all time. I've tried "Time delay" Rolling back the years" blah, blah, blah None of them REALLY work. Has anyone found one that they've used for a long time and they feel really works

Re: Anti-aging creams

Retina a/Renova/tretinoin are clinically proven to be anti-aging, so maybe try a prescription retin. But I agree for the most part. Antioxidants and stuff like vitamin c and retinol are proven to help too, but many of the stupid companies that make the products put them in jars or crappy containers that just expose them to air and light (many of the ingredients that are proven to work are also proven to lose effectiveness with exposure to air and light).

Oooh, you know which product would be my favorite if I wasn't using a prescription retin? Estee Lauder's Night Repair. It's a really nice retinol serum that you can wear with or without moisturizer. It's $90 though, so it's ridiculously overpriced. I also like Paula's Choice Barrier Repair (which also contains retinols). But since I'm using retin a I just stick with Cerave for now.

Re: Anti-aging creams

Well I would have to agree with you. Same is the case with me. I have used some anti-aging creams and they also didn't work for me.

Re: Anti-aging creams

The thing is that you have to start using them BEFORE you need them. I have always worn moisturizer - from my teens to now at 66. I NEVER go without it. Even if I'm wearing no makeup, I still moisturize - morning and at night with a night cream. And for at least 30 years I've used an eye serum and an eye cream. Olay makes some great ones that are cheaper. I also like Lancome's Renergie line as it does not have any perfume in it. And Prescriptives = online only now - all are great - eso the line preventer.

Re: Anti-aging creams

I think most "anti-ageing creams" are worthless and often harmful. My skin looks great when I eat avacodos, almonds and plenty of citrus. Also my face looks bloaty and blotchy when I eat processed foods.

Re: Anti-aging creams

I agree with Tichou,
I have used moisturising creams since my teens and at 65 yrs have hardly any wrinkles.
I might add that I buy my day/night creams from my local supermarket so it's not always the costly ones that do the best.
I also have never used foundation on my face (Never) only moisturiser. Family Genes and a healthy diet, and non-smoking have all been a help for me.

Re: Anti-aging creams

I'm 70 and have used extra virgin olive oil, straight out of the bottle, for quite a while. I use it on my arms, legs, feet, face and shoulders. Keeps the skin moist all day long. I just hope that I am never kidnapped by a cannibal.

Re: Anti-aging creams

NOPE!! I swear to never spend money on creams again. Even if they look like they will actually work haha. I use the Face Fx by Silk'n and it is the only thing I have actually SEEN results with. So...no more creams for me (:

Re: Anti-aging creams

All that is artificially made in a lab, and you cant take the spoon and eat it from the jar directly without harm you will harm you if you apply it to the skin also. Sooner or later. Dont use these creams. use only natural products.

Re: Anti-aging creams

I just started using Nerium AD. I have extremely sensitive skin and was worried about breakouts...but its been fine. I have used it for one week and already see some difference in fine lines and dark marks....My husband, who never notices anything- actually complimented me this morning when I came down for coffee without any makeup on!

Re: Anti-aging creams

I'm not a big fan of anti-aging creams. Some of the anti-aging creams can make a person look younger, but not more youthful. In other words, the person doesn't look old, but they don't look young. Obviously, celebrities can afford and probably do use the most expensive creams, and I have never seen one older celebrity who is perhaps in her 60's look really young. I guess it's OK to try them, if you have the money, or inexpensive brands, but I don't think there are really any miracles. In addition, I don't think people notice wrinkles as much as we think they do, unless they are really, really deep wrinkles.

Re: Anti-aging creams

The best thing is to go to a dermatologist who can prescibe prescription tretanoin cream.

Anything over the counter is such a low dose doesn't do much.

If you can afford it have some type of laser peal. They have gotten much better.
