One does not have to apply high tech active ingredients to effectively improve the appearance of wrinkles. In fact, excellent anti-aging results can be achieved through more natural products. First you need good moisturization to have the body's metabolism operating effectively. Proper hydration is also necessary for other therapeutic agents to pass into the skin and repair damaged structural components and rebalance its biochemical reactions. Look for materials with glycerin or urea which can infuse the skin's surface with water and make it more soft and supple. Also look for products with natural oils containing polyunsaturated fatty acids or omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids such as DHA or EPA. Many of the clinically effective materials are natural. Good nutritional compounds can also be topically applied. These materials include retinol (Vitamin A) or derivatives of retinol (retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate, retinyl propionate), ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) or derivates of ascorbic acid (ascorbyl glucuronide, ascorbyl palmitate, salts of ascorbic acid phosphate), niacinamide (Vitamin B3), alpha or beta hydroxy acids (glycolic acid, lactic acid, fruit acids, salicylic acid, Willowbark Extract), soothing agents (allantoin, chamomile, licorice). Further, there are many preventative antioxidant complexes that are from natural sources including: green tea, grape seeds, green coffee, pomegranate, rice, acai berry, raspberry, cranberry, beta-carotene, tocopherol (Vitamin E) .
