Modern science has brought us many benefits, including longer, healthier lives, which is something we can all be thankful for—but nature still takes her toll on us, and our skin starts to show signs of age well before we’d like it to. Science may not have found a way to stop us from aging yet, but fortunately, it has provided us with the information we need to create an effective anti-wrinkle cream that can help reduce the appearance of skin damage and improve the appearance of face wrinkles.


The Cause of Face Wrinkles

Wrinkles are just small creases or folds in the skin. They naturally occur where the skin creases as a result of facial expressions, and with age, appear in other areas of the face as a result of decreased elastin and collagen production. Free radicals in the environment as well as those that are produced when cells use oxygen damage the skin. Sun exposure is another major source of free radicals resulting in the development of face wrinkles, especially on the forehead.

Repeatedly squinting in the sun also causes the skin around the eyes to wrinkle. This repeated motion can increase wrinkles in that area, so wearing sunglasses when out in bright sun can be helpful for minimizing face wrinkles, just by letting those fine muscles stay relaxed more.

Laugh lines are creases at the outer edges of your mouth and eyes, which can become regular wrinkles that are more pronounced when you smile or laugh. It’s been said that laugh lines could be avoided by not smiling or laughing, but that certainly seems to be advice along the lines of cutting off your nose to spite your face.  We’d much rather enjoy life and use an anti-wrinkle cream!

Smoking is a terrible wrinkle producer and the one that is most easily avoidable. It isn’t, as some people assume, the actual smoke that damages the skin, but the nicotine content. Nicotine causes blood vessels in the skin to narrow, which results in less oxygen and nutrients reaching the outer layers so the skin wrinkles and sags.


How Anti-Wrinkle Cream Works

Chamonix skin cream for wrinkles is based on the power of antioxidants. We don’t want to get too technical, but basically, free radicals are unstable molecules because of unpaired electrons and they seek to become stable by taking electrons from healthy molecules. When enough of this occurs on the surface of your facial skin, the result appears as wrinkles and dark circles under your eyes.

Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals and build up your skin’s natural defenses. You’ve probably heard of “superfoods” that are high in antioxidants, like blueberries, cranberries, and green tea, but while they are wonderfully beneficial for your body, your internal organs use up almost all the antioxidants before they reach your skin. So our solution is to apply those natural wonders directly where we want them to go—right on your face.

In addition to counteracting the damage caused by free radicals, antioxidants help to heal damaged skin and prevent new wrinkles from forming. A combination of antioxidant-rich sources produces the most benefits by providing a wide array of antioxidant types. Cranberry, grape seed extract, and vitamin E are included in Chamonix skin cream for wrinkles, in addition to green tea, which not only protects cells, but also protects collagen, which is an important component of healthy skin and is one of the things that we naturally produce less of as we age.


The Importance of Natural Ingredients in Mature Skin Care Products

Humankind’s discovery of chemistry and the ability to manipulate the earth’s elements have resulted in some amazing things—but the results haven’t always been that great. Asbestos is a classic example—did you know that it was used by the ancient Greeks in the wicks of the eternal flames because of its resistance to fire? That quality is part of what made it such a popular insulating material in modern buildings. It was so effective, the U.S. military mandated its use. But then we found out that it’s very carcinogenic, and a lot of people died from exposure to it.

Chamonix skin cream for wrinkles is designed to reduce the appearance of face wrinkles without the use of any harsh chemicals or additives with negative side effects. Instead of a petroleum derivative, Esotique XV anti-wrinkle cream is formulated with a proprietary base of calendula flower and essential oil extracts. That’s clearly a huge difference, and the result is an anti-wrinkle cream without nasty chemicals, which skin will absorb without causing clogged pores or skin sensitivity.
