Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream

Younger skin in just a minute a day with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream

Healthy skin has elasticity and moisture, smoothness and even tone. Years of research aimed at identifying ways to keep skin youthful and ways to rejuvenate skin as years pass have revealed some important findings. Collagen is a fundamental component of healthy, youthful skin. As the body ages, the level of collagen present in the skin tissues diminishes. The result of this loss of collagen content is that the skin loses its fattiness and smoothness. Instead, it becomes thinner and falls into a more wrinkle prone and dry condition. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream contains ingredients that help to rebuild skin elasticity by restoring collagen to higher levels.

The chief active ingredient in Neutrogena’s anti-wrinkle cream is retinol. In clinical studies, Retinol has been shown to improve skin cell development and growth. Retinol is Vitamin A at its purest. The effect of retinol is to penetrate the outer layer of skin cells into the deeper layers, and to boost skin cell replacement and collagen levels. As retinol is used, it acts to remove dead skin cells and unclogs the pores while plumping the skin with new cells and greater amounts of collagen. Generally, results are seen with six months or more of daily use. Observations of mature people who used retinol thusly have revealed marked reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, smoother skin texture and greater elasticity to the skin tissue.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream comes with an SPF-15 sunscreen feature that is recommended since the application of retinol, or pure Vitamin A, causes some skin to become more sun sensitive. Neutrogena’s cream can be used on hands, surrounding the eye and on the lips as well. The anti wrinkle cream works very well on even mature skin or sun damaged skin to even out skin tone and reverse fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and moisturizers in the cream work concurrently to soothe and soften the skin as the retinol does its rejuvenating work. Just a pea-sized amount of the cream daily will have the desired effect.

Coupled with the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream would necessarily be generally good skin care practices. A thorough washing morning and night, with perhaps a gentle exfoliant sponge, will help in the removal of pore-clogging dead skin cells and impurities. This will help to prevent whiteheads and blackheads at the same time. An astringent for oily areas of the face and a light moisturizing lotion to retain moisture during the long hours of the day are also good practices. Diet can also play an important part: eating fruits, fibers, and consuming adequate hydrating water during the day can keep your skin more youthful looking. Dehydration is one of the worse conditions causing skin to lose its suppleness and smoothness.

Using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream with SPF-15 during the day reduces the photosensitivity that retinol gives to the skin, and protects the skin from any reactions to the retinol. During the first week or so of use, the retinol may cause some flaking. This is normal, as the cream is exfoliating the dead skin. Watching for redness or irritation is a good idea, and adjusting the use to every other day is advised if the skin is ultra-sensitive to the retinol. Remember to use only the directed small amount. If used as advised, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream will show a smoother skin with fewer lines and wrinkles in about eight to twelve weeks. Patience and consistency is the key to seeing good results. At the same time, use discretion in what other products you may apply to your face. It would not be a good idea to indiscriminately use other products, as they may also contain retinol and your dosage would then be increased above the recommended amount.

At a price of about $15 per jar, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkling Cream will last for a considerable time since just a pea sized amount is used each day. The cream can be ordered online or can be bought at most drugstores and cosmetic counters of departments. Buying a jar will mean that you are only a couple of months away from more youthful looking skin.
