Best Anti-Wrinkle Creams For Younger Looking Skin
Over time, external stressors and internal changes affect the look and feel of skin. If left unprotected, factors like UV radiation and pollution, as well as the natural decrease in skin cell regeneration can accumulate in ageing symptoms.
Sun spots, loss of volume, fine lines and wrinkles can appear over time on skin. When they will appear depends on the above factors, but these signs typically surface in our 30s. To help support how your skin ages, skincare products like anti winkle creams can be implemented.
Usable from your 20s onwards as a preventative or to address current symptoms, anti-ageing skincare products like wrinkle creams can help to reinforce and enhance youthful skin. So, what does anti-wrinkle cream do that makes it so effective? We deep dive into the superhero product and the best wrinkle cream application methods ahead.
The best anti-wrinkle skincare ingredients
Kiehl’s plant-powered skincare contains a range of efficacious and potent ingredients. In terms of anti-ageing support, certain ingredients are especially beneficial – being able to encourage skin cell turnover and address the affects of external stress. Used in Kiehl’s anti-wrinkle formulas, some skin firming ingredients to look out for include:
Vitamin A (retinol): possibly the best-known anti-ageing ingredient, retinol is uniquely effective at addressing the internal factors of ageing. 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. This means it can address skin oxidisation already present in skin – which occurs as a result of UV radiation.
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 incredibly supportive of skin. Packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, botanicals help promote youthful complexions.

Anti-wrinkle eye cream
The skin around our eyes needs special attention – including its own skincare steps. This is because the area is around 40% thinner than the rest of facial skin. Signs of ageing tend to appear here first – so eye wrinkle cream is an important aspect of anti-ageing support.
Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream
Formulated with ingredients especially useful for fortifying thin skin, Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream targets wrinkles, crow’s feet and eye puffiness. Caffeine, calcium PCA and copper PCA is combined to stimulate skin and improve elasticity. Used morning or night, our eye cream for wrinkles refreshes skin and improves the appearance of wrinkles.

Facial anti-wrinkle cream
Facial anti-ageing creams support a range of ageing skin signs. Alongside fine lines and wrinkles, an anti-wrinkle cream can support overarching elasticity and texture, alongside brightness. As a moisturiser, these steps also help to reimplement optimal hydration, which maturing skin can struggle to maintain.
Super Multi-Corrective Cream
Kiehl’s cream for wrinkles helps to visible reduce fine lines and lines that have more apparent depth. Super Multi-Corrective Cream is specially formulated to target visible signs of ageing, and can be used by all skin types (including sensitive!). Chaga mushroom is combined with Phytomimetic vitamin A and hyaluronic acid to refresh skin’s surface, improve elasticity and even skin tone. Used both day and night, skin feels lifted, retexturised and bouncier.

The ideal anti-wrinkle skincare routine
The most effective way to benefit from anti-wrinkle cream is to maintain regular application. Consistent use of your products is essential to visible results, but there are other anti-ageing tips that can enhance your routine:
- Last step in a 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).
- Alongside powerful anti-ageing serums:
Used alongside certain products, the benefits of anti-ageing cream are supported and enhanced. Before application of your cream, we recommend using 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 (especially important in Australia!).
