What Is the Best Over The Counter Wrinkle Cream Or Serum?

People will always have different choices when it comes to over the counter wrinkle creams or serums. It’s really not very easy to decide, especially when there are tons of them out there. They are literally everywhere – in physical stores as well as online. For me, though, choosing an anti- wrinkle cream is more like a personal thing; what works for one person may not be the best choice for another. The best anti-wrinkle cream may not be the most popular or most expensive one out there, but it has to be one that is right for you. But how do you know what’s right for you? Well, there are two critical factors to consider – your skin type and your age. Let’s have a look at each one.

Skin Type

Do you have dry skin, oily skin, normal skin, or a combination of any two? If you are not sure, just take a look at the pores of your skin. If the pores of your skin are big, your skin is oily, otherwise, it’s dry. You can also run this simple test. Wash your face clean with a cleanser. Pat it dry then wait for an hour. Then put a tissue on each of these areas – the chin, the center of the cheeks, the outer portion of the cheeks, the center of the forehead, the outer portion of the forehead, and the nose. Now what do you see? If oil appears on every tissue, it means that you have oily skin. If oil appears only on areas along the T-zone, that’s on the center of your forehead, the nose, the chin, as well as the center of your cheeks, it means that you have “combination” skin type. If flakes appear on all the tissues, it means that your skin is dry, but if neither oil nor flake is present on any one of the tissues, your skin is the normal type.

It’s very important that you know your skin type before shopping for an anti-wrinkle cream or any beauty products because you will want to be sure that the ingredients in your choice of anti-aging product are not going to cause any negative reaction to your skin. If you have dry skin, for instance, you will benefit greatly with an anti-wrinkle cream that contains hydrating properties. Look especially for wrinkle products with Vitamin E because this vitamin can hold water so as to keep the skin from drying. On the other hand if you have oily skin, you will want to avoid oils that can further clog the pores. See to it, then, that your choice of product does not have petrolatum or mineral oil.


Anti-wrinkle creams or serums come in different formulations, so you must choose one that is able to address the issues common to your age. If you are between 40 and 55 years old, you are likely to be dealing with sagging lids, more dark spots, and more visible wrinkles. In this case you will need your anti-wrinkle cream to do more than just protect your skin. You will want your wrinkle cream to have the capability of repairing your damaged skin cells so as to reverse these problems. In this case, you will need your anti-wrinkle cream to come with more powerful antioxidants, and with other ingredients that are clinically proven to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin (which in low levels cause the appearance of wrinkles and the skin to sag).

As you can see, I cannot tell you what is the best over the counter wrinkle cream or serum out there now. That has to be your decision based on your skin type and your age.
