Fine lines and wrinkles are a result of natural, internal changes alongside external stress. Stressors like UV radiation, pollution and certain lifestyle habits can accelerate the natural degeneration of cells and collagen. To protect the health of your skin and promote a firm and glowing complexion, anti-wrinkle face cream is an efficacious defence. An essential component of anti-ageing skincare routines, anti-wrinkle cream benefits hydration, volume and firmness in skin – at any age!

So, how does anti-wrinkle cream work? To help you get the most out of your plumping products and boost skin’s radiance, we’ll walk through this superhero skincare step and how to apply it for best results. Find your perfect anti-wrinkle cream for NZ skin stress ahead.

Anti-wrinkle cream ingredients to look out for

Kiehl’s plant-powered anti-wrinkle face cream and eye cream formulas are packed with efficacious and potent ingredients. In terms of firming and lifting support, certain ingredients can be especially beneficial. Kiehl’s skincare for fine lines and wrinkles promote youthful tone and texture with the following ingredients:

Vitamin A (retinol): Possibly the best-known anti-ageing ingredient, retinol is uniquely effective at addressing the internal factors which encourage fine lines and wrinkles. The nutrient is able to encourage faster skin cell renewal, surfacing fresher and younger skin in the process.

Vitamin C: A super-protector against external stress, vitamin C is an antioxidant with uniquely skin-brightening strength. This means it can address skin oxidisation which has already occurred.

Hyaluronic acid: Deeply hydrating, hyaluronic acid can draw in and retain moisture, binding it to collagen in skin. This supports firmness and elasticity, alongside brightness and bounce.

Botanical extracts: Extracts like geranium essential oil and evening primrose oil are naturally sourced and provide incredible support to skin. Packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, botanicals help to promote youthful complexions.

The best anti-wrinkle creams for youthful skin

The aim of anti-wrinkle night creams and day moisturisers is to visibly lift, depuff and firm complexions whilst increasing hydration. Over time, Kiehl’s anti-wrinkle creams reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reveal younger, stronger and brighter skin. Anti-wrinkle creams can be applied after cleansing and nourishing skin with serums, and pair well with anti-wrinkle eye creams for a targeted skincare regime. To find your perfect fit, explore the range below.

Anti-wrinkle face cream

Anti-wrinkle face creams support a range of ageing skin signs. As a moisturiser, this step helps to reimplement hydration to skin (and as maturing skin can struggle to stay hydrated, this promotes overall radiance). Anti-wrinkle ingredients in Kiehl’s firming facial creams target both environmental and internal stressors that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles.

Super Multi-Corrective Cream

Kiehl’s anti-wrinkle face cream helps to visibly reduce both surface level fine lines and lines with apparent depth. Super Multi-Corrective Cream is specially formulated to target these visible signs of ageing through the use of firming ingredients. Chaga mushroom is combined with phytomimetic vitamin A and hyaluronic acid to refresh skin’s surface, improve elasticity and even skin tone. You can use the formula both day and night to lift and retexturise skin for bouncier complexions.

Anti-wrinkle eye cream

The skin around our eyes needs special attention. This area is especially thin (it can be up to 40% thinner than the rest of facial skin!), and because of its lower volume and fragile nature, signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles tend to appear there first. To promote plumper, bouncier and brighter skin around the eyes, anti-wrinkle creams for eyes are enriched with intensely nourishing ingredients.

Super Multi-Corrective Eye Zone Treatment

Fine lines and wrinkles can appear in all four eye zones. To lift and firm the outer corner, eye lids, brow bone area and under eye area, Super Multi-Corrective Eye Zone Treatment is formulated with depuffing and anti-ageing ingredients. Bilberry seed extract and collagen peptides are combined in a lightweight texture for quick absorption and beautiful results.

Packed with botanicals, our anti-wrinkle night cream replenishes skin for a refreshed and depuffed appearance.

How to use anti-wrinkle cream

Regular and consistent application of your anti-wrinkle creams is essential to the best skincare outcomes. To attain the most visible results and protect skin’s integrity, other anti-ageing tips that can be added to enhance your routine:

  • Use as the last step in your routine:
    Like all other skincare products, where you place your wrinkle creams matters. Thanks to the intense supply of moisture and thick texture, ageing cream also works to seal in the ingredients of other products. Always apply it as the last step in your routine (aside from SPF in the morning).
  • Use alongside powerful anti-ageing serums:
    Before applying your anti-wrinkle face cream, consider implementing a retinol-infused serum. Retinol Skin-Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum targets signs of ageing in a daily strength dose. Always use in the evening and moisturise afterwards.
  • SPF use:
    Without daily SPF use, your anti-ageing products aren’t able to fully protect skin. Arguably the most important step in an anti-ageing skincare routine, sunscreen creates a block between UV radiation and deep skin layers.
