    Honey is best for skin. It helps to cleanse the skin, giving a shiny appearance and the costs of preventing the formation of blackheads and pimples. It is also good for preventing premature wrinkles.

    An, the most important ingredients that have been scientifically proven to rejuvenate the skin are:
    - Vitamin A
    - Hyaluronic Acid
    - Antioxidants
    - Sunscreen
    - Hydroxy acids
    You need to use creams that contain these at high enough concentrations, in order to be getting value for your money. Consult your dermatologist or Aesthetic Doctor to find out more.

    Awesome answer Genae!

    Yes, vitamin A creams in the forms of retinols and retinoids are the most powerful and proven effective anti-aging molecules. Everyone (except pregnant and nursing women) should be using them!!!

    Use natural oils for moisturizing your skin. Flaxseed oil, aloe vera gel or emu oil helps reduce appearance of wrinkle and fine lines. Unheated coconut oil prevents clogging of pores and works well for wrinkle removal. Olive oil that has vitamin E helps fight aging and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines, etc.
