It’s time to face it: Wrinkles are a fact of life for everyone. And as you age, you may notice that fine lines and wrinkles are becoming more and more visible. While getting older definitely has its perks (why yes, you are more confident now than you were in your younger years), you likely don’t count developing wrinkles as one of them. You likely also know that an anti-wrinkle cream is your best bet at reducing their appearance, but you may not realize that different wrinkle creams and moisturizers are better for different people. Finding the best wrinkle cream for your age is key when it comes to making a difference in wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and anywhere else on your face. Ready to find the best anti-wrinkle cream to add to your skin care routine? Below, learn about our best wrinkle creams for every age group, plus get a complete anti-aging skin care guide.


Like we said, using the right anti-aging products can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles. When it comes to adding a face cream for wrinkles into your skin care routine, look for one that’s specifically formulated for your age group. If that sounds confusing, don’t worry—we’re breaking down who should use which anti-wrinkle cream, below.

OUR BEST anti-WRINKLE CREAM for your 30s

In your 30s, fine lines may begin to appear and skin may start to lose elasticity, making you look older. Developed for ages 35 and up, the L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert Day/Night Moisturizer 35+ is formulated to instantly hydrate skin. It also reduces early signs of aging including fine lines, elasticity loss, and dryness with continued use over time. This anti-wrinkle cream also contains collagen and works to help cushion the skin barrier and promote smoother, plumper skin.

OUR BEST anti-WRINKLE CREAM for your 40s

Once you reach your fourth decade of life, fine lines and wrinkles may really start to show—but don’t panic! In addition to whole-heartedly embracing your age, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert Day/Night Moisturizer 45+. At this age, wrinkles can progressively appear and become more prominent as skin loses firmness, making you look older. This face cream for wrinkles is formulated for ages 45 and up to help improve the appearance of signs of aging. Immediately, skin is moisturized and feels softer while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced with continued use over time.

OUR BEST anti-WRINKLE CREAM for your 50s

Starting in your 50s, skin loses vital nourishment and the appearance of wrinkles becomes more pronounced. Formulated for those 55 and up, the L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert Day/Night Moisturizer 55+ helps improve the look of smoothness for a more youthful appearance. Skin feels nourished with moisture immediately, while wrinkles are visibly smoothed with continued use over time. As we get older, our skin naturally loses moisture. This cream combats just that, providing long-lasting, continuous skin hydration.

Once you’ve decided which of the above wrinkle creams is right for you, smooth it on gently over your face and neck until thoroughly absorbed every morning and night. For best results, use it as part of a proper skin care routine. Keep reading to learn exactly how.


Now that you know which wrinkle cream is right for you, make it part of an overall strategy to get your skin looking its healthiest and most beautiful.

1. Start with the right cleanser

Just starting to notice wrinkles and fine lines? Well, dryness can make them even more pronounced. If this sounds familiar, don’t assume that just any facial cleanser will do. You may want to consider using a cream cleanser, which can help nourish your skin as it removes dirt, oils, and impurities from the surface of your skin. We’ve got two cream cleanser options for you to choose from, and both promote smoother, younger-looking skin. The L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser is specifically formulated to nourish skin while also exfoliating away dead skin cells and all traces of impurities, excess oil, and makeup. The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser is gentle yet effective. This face wash is ideal for those with mature skin, as it provides replenishing oils while also cleansing away makeup, oil, and other impurities from the surface of the skin.

2. Stock up on broad-spectrum sunscreen

After you’ve applied your wrinkle cream in the morning, don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF value of 15 or higher as directed—this rule applies no matter your age! In addition to applying (and reapplying) sunscreen, you should also take other sun protection measures including limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially during peak hours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in pants, long sleeves, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.

3. Show your eye area some TLC

Crow’s feet—the fine lines that can form in the corners of your eyes—are a common sign of skin aging. That’s because the contour of your eyes is one of the first places to show visible signs of skin aging since it’s a more delicate, thin area of skin. Using a hydrating eye cream every morning and evening will help to keep the eye are healthy and, as such, less wrinkle-prone. Actually, we firmly believe that you’re never too young to start using an eye cream! Take your pick from a few of our best eye creams for wrinkles.

L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel: With a cooling formula and rollerball applicator, this hydrating eye gel is ideal for those looking to stave off wrinkles as well as puffy under-eye bags.

L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Anti-Aging Eye Brightener: If you want an eye cream that brightens and color corrects dark under-eye circles while also providing hydration, this one’s for you. The whipped texture and rose hue instantly blurs dark circles and brightens up the eye area.

L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Eye Renewal Eye Cream: This powerful anti-aging eye cream targets five signs of aging skin at once, helping diminish dark circles, puffiness, under-eye bags, crow’s feet, and crepiness.

4. Add exfoliation to your routine

Exfoliating is key, especially as you get older. Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking dry and dull, which can exacerbate the appearance of signs of skin aging like wrinkles. How often you should exfoliate depends—some people can handle daily exfoliation, while others may only be able to handle doing so once or twice a week. Start slow and pay attention to how your skin responds to determine what works best for you.

5. Take your makeup off gently

Instead of rubbing your face aggressively and using a drying makeup remover formula, choose a gentle, hydrating micellar water to take everything off. Try the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types. This no-rinse cleanser helps remove all traces of makeup and impurities from skin’s surface without the need to lather or ever turn on the sink.

6. Don’t skip moisturizing at night

Once you determine which of the above wrinkle creams is best suited for your skin, use it! Take advantage of your beauty sleep by applying it before your head hits the pillow. Another protective measure to take is layering on a wrinkle-fighting night cream, such as the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream or the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream.
