Wrinkles are inevitable if we live long enough, and there are many different ways of dealing with them. You may have found an excellent home remedy for wrinkles while others have found excellent results from one of the very effective new generation, natural anti aging, anti wrinkle creams.
If you choose to try anti aging skin creams, there are some pitfalls you need to be aware of. Just because a cream or lotion claims to be a remedy for wrinkles, doesn’t mean it really is. It is critical that you become familiar with the ingredients and understand which ingredients are truly effective.

In reality, the best home remedy for wrinkles means using the safest, most natural skin care lotions. With this in mind let’s begin by looking at some of the ingredients that you should avoid when shopping for anti wrinkle products.
Any anti wrinkle cream that contains mineral oil or alcohol should be avoided. Both of these ingredients actually will damage the skin in the long run. Mineral oil clogs the pores, trapping bacteria while alcohol strips the skin of it natural protective oils. Both of these will speed up the aging process.
Believe it or not, collagen is something that you don’t want in a home remedy for wrinkles, not because it causes damage, but because it is impossible for your skin to benefit from it. The collagen molecule is too large to be absorbed into the skin.
Instead look for skin creams and lotions that contain natural ingredients that have been shown to be effective wrinkle removers. Keratin is one ingredient that has years of scientific study behind it. The human skin uses keratin in the production of collagen and elastin.
A recently developed substance called Cynergy TK is rich in functional keratin. Functional simply means it is easily absorbed into the skin and is bio-available so the body can make use of it. Research studies on Cynergy TK have shown it to:
1. Increase collagen and elastin
2. Lessen wrinkles and lines in the skin
3. Soothe red irritated skin
4. Help the skin produce more skin cells
5. Lighten the skin, giving it a more creamy appearance.
Another ingredient you are probably familiar with is avocado oil. However, are you aware that it helps the skin in three separate ways? First of all it is a great moisturizer that is similar to the natural oils in the human skin. Secondly, it is now known to help with the production of elastin and collagen in the skin. And thirdly, avocado oil nourishes the skin with vitamin E and omega 3 and 9 fatty acids.
The proper home remedy for wrinkles is a great start. But if you seriously want to begin removing wrinkles in your skin look for skin care ingredients with this level of effectiveness. When combined with other natural anti wrinkle ingredients that I discuss on my website, Cynergy TK and avocado oil make a powerful anti wrinkle remedy that you will be able to count on to provide the results you want.
