Hello my darlings! In today’s post I talk about the best anti-wrinkle creams recommended by dermatologists in 2023. The reason is that you know that I really like cosmetics in general, and also discover new brands. But, deep down, I like to resort to those brands that are endorsed by the opinion of doctors.
If you read this blog frequently you will already know that my goal is to understand cosmetics and know what formulations are best for our skin, beyond brands, trends and marketing. That’s why my approach is to research the ingredients of each product and understand why they work and why they don’t.
Total, that after researching in publications and magazines of dermatology both Spanish and the association of dermatologists of England, where I live, this is my ranking of best ingredients and anti-wrinkle creams recommended by experts in dermatology in this year 2023.
The Best Anti-Wrinkle Creams Recommended by Dermatologists in 2023
Then I will list the creams most recommended by specialists within each specific category.
1. The best anti-wrinkle cream recommended by dermatologists lifting effect
Isdin is a pharmacy brand with a reputation that has earned itself, and in fact that is why it is endorsed by dermatologists.
The cream Isdinceutics A.G.E. Reverse, has an excellent value for money. Further proof that the best anti-wrinkle creams don’t always have to be the most expensive.
When I talk about lifting effect I mean that, after continued use, this cream helps to redefine and reshape the facial oval.
What ingredients do you use? Well, mainly hyaluronic acid, which I love and then also Syn-Hycan. How? But what is that? Well, I did some research on this ingredient and it turns out that it is a combination of three peptides that is used to simulate a Botox effect without surgery.
That said, this cream is especially recommended for mature skin with a lack of firmness. However, it does not have particularly aggressive ingredients, because technically it can be used by skins of any age.
Isdinceutics A.G.E. Reverse, from the pharmacy brand Isin offers a triple action: anti-pollution, anti-glycation and remodeling.
2. The best anti-wrinkle cream with glycolic acid recommended by dermatologists
Glycoligus acid is a powerful cosmetic ingredient that, used wisely, can produce spectacular results.
The cream SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is a great example recommended by dermatologists.
This cream from SkinCeuticals focuses on preserving collagen and elastin levels. This results in elastic and firm skin.
Due to the ingredients used, it is especially recommended for mature skin. For example from the age of 50. But beyond looking at an age we must assess the state of the skin. The SkinCeuticals with Glycolic acid is designed for skin with lack of firmness, whatever its age.
3. The best anti-wrinkle cream with hyaluronic acid recommended by dermatologists
Another of my favourite cosmetic ingredients is hyaluronic acid. I like it because the skin absorbs it naturally and offers any kind of aggressive effect on the skin. In addition, it is valid for any age.
The Spanish Journal of Continuing Education in Dermatology explains that after applying hyaluronic acid the skin presents a result of significant aesthetic improvement in deep wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
Shiseido’s Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing cream is expensive, but also one of the most acclaimed, not only in 2023 but for some time now. This anti-wrinkle cream is suitable for all skin types, although it is especially suitable for people with normal and combination skin type due to its soft and light texture.
The texture of this cream is very soft and light, also significantly reduces spots and wrinkles on the face and neck after the first applications.
Shiseido’s Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing is available in an enriched version (for dry skin) and also in a version with sunscreen 25.
4. The most economical anti-wrinkle cream recommended by dermatologists
This is one of the most economical options within the premium anti-wrinkle cosmetics endorsed by dermatologists. However, it is still a very effective option as a treatment.
Unlike other creams on this list, this cream can be used for skin with first signs of aging, for example from 25 years old. You know that for me this is the barrier age to start using specific anti-aging products.
What is Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + for? Well, this cream is designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The firmness, density and elasticity of your skin are supposed to improve significantly after use.
Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + cream is suitable for use both day and night, as it does not contain sunscreen. It also does not contain ingredients that should be kept away from the sun, so you can use it both day and night.
Without wanting to enhance the effects of this cream you can use it in conjunction with the Advance Night Repair Serum that I am talking about is another post.
The main ingredients of this cream are Prickly Pear extract and Moringa. They have a few curious names, but basically, one is responsible for providing nutrition to the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen. The other, moringa, is responsible for providing vitamins and antioxidants.
5. The best anti-wrinkle cream with ceramides recommended by dermatologists
Of course? The star ingredient of 2023: ceramides! Yes, I know I’m a bit heavy with ceramides, but this time it’s not me who recommends them but dermatologists.
Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Lift and Firm cream is a great choice as a premium cosmetic. Although being honest, ceramides are not an expensive ingredient within the manufacturing process, so there are also other more low-cost options with ceramides, such as Dr. Jart +. In that post I tell you my experience with her.
But today we talk only about the anti-wrinkle creams recommended by dermatologists in 2023, so let’s focus on this one by Elizabeth Arden. That on the other hand, it is not that it is any novelty, because this has been super popular for a few years now.
Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Lift and Firm cream bases its success on ceramides, which serve to fill wrinkles and maintain the skin’s level of hydration.
At the same time, it provides great hydration, so with continued use the skin feels much softer, firmer and revitalized. Its texture is so soft and light that it absorbs very easily, to squeeze the most out of its result, I recommend combining it with Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide serum.
6. The best natural anti-wrinkle cream recommended by dermatologists
The Anti-wrinkle Cream Night 50+ with Retinol from Nezeni Cosmetics is one of the favourite by dermatologists because in addition to being natural, it contains the star active against aging and acne: retinol.
And although retinol can give some problems, as it is very sensitive and spoils easily; In this formula it is microencapsulated, that is, it will remain intact until the moment you apply it on the skin, so that it does not lose properties while it is open.
If you’re worried that your sensitive skin doesn’t tolerate retinol well, you’ll be pleased to know that the brand has also created a version for sensitive and dry skin that replaces retinol with its plant analogue: bakuchiol.
In addition to benefiting from all the qualities of retinol (reduces wrinkles and blemishes, enhances elasticity and softness, stimulates collagen), you will also benefit from glycolic acid, shea butter, the best oils and plant extracts, and thus its more than 20 concentrated actives.
And you still wonder why it is one of the creams most recommended by dermatologists?
Perhaps it is also because it is vegan and selects only the best and most innovative ingredients, without parabens or dangerous chemicals, and with a very low level of preservatives to prevent the negative effects of its daily accumulation. You will also notice this in its useful life, two years from its manufacture even if you do not take it out of the container.
It is to use at night, and during the day you can resort to its other anti-wrinkle or moisturizing creams indicated for different skin types and age; so that your care is totally personalized.
I hope that this posts on the best anti-aging creams recommended by dermatologists has helped you!
