Resurfacing While You Cleanse
Many anti-wrinkle cleansers on the market today address existing signs of aging by resurfacing the complexion while they cleanse. These products typically contain exfoliating ingredients like the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) glycolic and lactic acid. AHAs in the cleansers break the bonds that hold old skin cells in place on the complexion, allowing dead tissue to be washed away along with dirt and impurities. With regular use, exfoliating anti-wrinkle cleansers can decrease the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, making them less apparent. The exfoliating actions of the cleansers also fight dullness to leave mature skin looking more radiant.
Purifying and Promoting Repair
Not all anti-wrinkle cleansers act as exfoliators
. Some provide anti-aging benefits by helping to repair damage that has been done by free radicals in UV and pollutants. These cleansers wash away impurities but leave behind anti-aging ingredients like niacinamide and peptides. When the ingredients are absorbed by the skin, they help to rejuvenate damaged tissue. Over time, this can improve the firmness of the complexion and make signs of aging less prominent.
Protecting Skin from Free Radicals
Some anti-wrinkle cleansers help to minimize damage which can lead to signs of premature aging. These products are enriched with antioxidants, which are vitamins, minerals, plant compounds and other nutrients that are capable of breaking down free radicals before they can damage the skin.
Antioxidants that are commonly used in anti-wrinkle cleansers include coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A and E. Vitamin C is also used in some anti-wrinkle cleansers. This nutrient acts as an antioxidant while supporting the production of collagen fibers to strengthen and repair mature skin.
