A short time ago, I wrote about the best skin products for men.  Today, I’ll go into some of the things men need to know about how to find the best wrinkle creams.

In order for you to decide on what the best wrinkle cream for your skin should be, it is important for you to do your homework and know your product well in so that you are well informed. A dermatologist can also help you sort out what works, what is the hype, and what might help your skin.  Today I’m dumbing down the online research process so you can avoid going to the dermatologist and be a smart shopper.

Whether you are a business professional trying to look your best, or a guy like Tom trying to chase women around, you need to take care of your skin.  The number of men doing skin procedures has shot up in recent years, and due to many anti aging procedures, I don’t see that trend backing down any time soon.

Finding Anti Aging Creams for Men

Solve sun damage and wrinkles with antioxidants

I golf locally, as well as take trips to other sunny States to meet friends and play golf.  At least I try.  This means the sun is beating down on me constantly.

Antioxidants are a natural substance which is comprised of vitamins and minerals which are found in most plants in a different range of amounts. They can fight against “free radicals” which damage the skin DNA.

Arnold Palmer wrinkles

Arnold Palmer was a tremendous golfer. He also had skin wrinkles from so much sun, which is something I’m trying to avoid.

Damaged skin cells can be really boost aging in a negative way with wrinkles, dry skin, dark circles under the eyes, dull skin, and more. Consuming foods which are rich in antioxidants are key, not only for your skin but also generally for your overall health. Antioxidants are also used on the skin and the antioxidants which are most known to repair damaged skin and slowing the aging process include Acai oil, Alpha-lipoic acid, green tea extract, Retinol, Vitamin C, CoEnzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10), Caffeine. Along with these the other plant-based or natural ingredients for skin that is aging is found in skin-care products which include Alpha-hydroxy acid, Salicylic acid, Hyaluronic acid.

Acai Oil

Acai berries, are native to Central and South America, (although I never saw them when I lived in San Jose) and are highly potent in antioxidants, more than those found in other berries. Cold-pressing acai berries extracts the oil, which can fight aging by healing sun damage and smoothing wrinkles.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is made by the body and is found in every cell. It also works as an antioxidant; it attacks free radicals throughout the body where it has the ability to absorb into skin-cell membranes to destroy them. Alpha-lipoic acid is advertised commercially as a substance that can erase fine lines and wrinkles, diminish pores, and give skin a healthy glow.

Green Tea Extract 

Tea is known to be filled with nutrients called polyphenols, which have been shown to fight free radicals.

Early studies have found the ingredients in tea can reduce sun damage and may protect skin from skin cancer when applied topically. Using green tea extract under sunscreen may yield a double dose of protection. Polyphenols in creams and lotions may also slow signs of aging and reduce sagging skin and wrinkles.


Retinol is made from vitamin A and goes on your skin. It boosts collagen production and plumps out skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves skin tone and color, and reduces mottled patches on the skin.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is being added to skin care products such as creams and lotions. If you want to use a topical vitamin C-based product, ask your dermatologist which one would be right for you otherwise the creams with high concentrations of vitamin C are the ones that are likely to work.  It’s also a master antioxidant, which is basically what detox drinks are known to do.

CoEnzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10)

Your body naturally makes CoQ-10 to neutralize free radicals in cells. As you age, you make less CoQ-10. That may make skin cells more vulnerable to damage by free radicals.

That’s a quick 20,000 foot look into ingredients you should know about.  The biggest tip I can give you is that when you read a skin care product label, the ingredients will be listed in the order of the amount of the active ingredient percentage.  The first ingredient will always be water, then it will be followed by the next most active ingredients.

Look out soon for our skin care product round-up, where we’ll talk about the best products for each skin condition a man will suffer over the course of his 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and beyond.
