What type of anti-wrinkle cream should I choose for my skin type?
To choose one good wrinkle cream, you should consider two factors:
- Composition or ingredients
On one hand, his composition or ingredients, and on the other hand, its texture.
1. The first essential factor when choosing my Anti-wrinkle cream:
Regarding its composition or ingredients, our recommendation is that you only use a facial cream that is formulated no petroleum oils such as paraffins, silicones, petroleum jelly, etc.
These petroleum-derived oils are used today in almost all cosmetic brands, because they are very cheap ingredients for the manufacturer, but are not appropriate for your skin, since in the first place they make an occlusive layer and this means that they do not let your skin breathe. This is not healthy, and can result in the appearance of comedones (pimples or acne).
In addition, as a consequence of this occlusive layer, the hydration of your skin will ascend to the upper layers of your skin causing dehydration in the lower layers. And as you well know, if what you want is to prevent skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles, you should not let your skin dry out, being a good hydration the fundamental aspect for the health of your skin.
Petroleum-derived oils do not allow the active ingredients contained in the anti-wrinkle cream to penetrate properly. We in our Anti-Stress face cream, instead of using oils derived from petroleum, we use only vegetable oils (that is, oils derived from plants), whose fatty acids are more similar to the fatty acids of our skin, allowing the absorption of the active ingredients of the cream to be greater, and therefore becoming our anti-wrinkle cream, not only in a natural wrinkle cream but also one most effective wrinkle cream than conventional brand creams.
In addition, the vegetable oils that our Anti-aging cream are in themselves great active principles, since these vegetable oils contain vitamins, proteins, phytosterols, amino acids, etc. The vegetable oils that we use are cold-pressed to keep all their properties intact.
On the other hand, petroleum-derived oils used by conventional (non-natural) cosmetic brands, They are inert oilsThese are by-products of oil refining (oil is refined to turn it into gasoline, diesel oil and others). The word "inert" means "without life" because they do not have any active ingredient for your skin.
2. The second essential factor when choosing my Anti-aging cream:
The second vitally important factor is choosing a Anti-aging cream that has the right texture for your skin type.
To know what type of texture is best suited to your skin type, the first thing you need is to know what kind of skin you have. We can classify skin types into 4 biotypes, from higher to lower level of oily secretion:

Anti-aging cream for dry skin
However, you should also take into account the weather conditions of your place of residence. The climate in which we live also affects our skin.
So can I combine an anti-wrinkle gel in summer with an anti-wrinkle cream in winter?
Of course. In fact, we we recommend combining both textures in the case of having a mixed skin (which is what is known as "a little fat"), and in the case of having normal skin.
How should I apply my anti-wrinkle cream?
For a correct application of your anti-wrinkle cream, it is best to apply the dispenser on the fingertip index and take the desired amount to three points of the face. It is recommended to apply it in the T zone, that is, on both cheeks and on the forehead.
Once the cream has been applied to the 3 points of the face, begin to spread it with the fingertips in a circular way all over the face. If your skin absorbs it very quickly, it is a sign that your skin is dehydrated and needs a plus of hydrationso don't hesitate repeat application with a little more cream.
perform a smooth circular massage as you expand the cream until it has been completely absorbed. You will see that both our Anti-Stress Gel and Anti-Stress Cream leave the skin completely matte, that is, without shine, and without the feeling that your skin is oily or sticky. It is a sign that It is a good anti-wrinkle cream formulated for men's skin..
How often should I apply my Anti-aging cream?
We recommend that the anti-wrinkle cream should be applied twice a day, in the morning and at night. The ideal is to apply the cream always after a facial cleansing..
If you shower in the morning, we recommend that you use your shower gel on the body, and your shampoo on the hair, but do not use a conventional soap or shower gel for your face, since they may contain sulfates or a pH that is too aggressive for the face.
We recommend that once you have got out of the shower, wash your face with our Extra Gent's facial cleanser, without sulfates and with pH 5.5.
If you shower at night, then we recommend you follow the same routine recommended above with the facial cleansing + the application of Anti-aging cream. The only difference is that you will have to do the facial cleansing. after showering at night and then you can proceed to apply your Anti-aging cream.
In any case, if you shower in the morning, don't forget to do a facial cleansing. at night before proceeding to apply your Anti-aging cream. And if you shower at night, don't forget to wash your face when you wake up, and before applying your Anti-aging cream.
So that you face care routine easier, we recommend that you associate it with your oral hygiene. In the same way that you brush your teeth twice a day, you should take care of your skin by cleaning and moisturizing it with a good wrinkle cream also twice a day.
