The following ingredients can help preserve your skin and could play a role in keeping it hydrated, firm and wrinkle-free. Try these anti-aging products as part of your skin care routine to potentially reduce wrinkles and give your skin a youthful glow.
Studies find that niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide) may help with the appearance of the skin. In one study, participants who applied a 5 percent niacinamide cream on their skin twice a day showed visible improvements in their skin's appearance after 12 weeks. There was a small reduction in wrinkles, red spots and hyperpigmented spots.
Retinoids, a form of vitamin A, can help decrease the appearance of wrinkles. For an over-the-counter option, look for products that contain retinol, which can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Dermatologists can also evaluate your skin and help you determine what products might be most useful.

- AHA and BHA
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and beta hydroxy acids (BHA) are chemicals that are used in skin care products to help remove dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin and level the top layer of the skin. AHAs, such as glycolic acid, can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and certain types of skin discoloration. BHAs, like salicylic acid, can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and the pigmentation of sun-damaged skin.
