La Prairie Cellular Resurfacing Cream

Exfoliating can help reduce wrinkles, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. La Prairie's facial resurfacing cream includes both salicylic acid, which exfoliates your pores, and lactic acid, which exfoliates your skin surface. These acids, plus antioxidants and skin conditioners, are packaged in what skincare expert Paula Begoun calls a "beautifully emollient" cream that also helps to moisturize your skin.

Neutrogena Spectrum+Advanced Sunblock Lotion SPF 55

Begoun warns that most major signs of aging, like wrinkles and brown spots, comes "primarily from unprotected sun exposure." Minimize such aging with Neutrogena's Spectrum+ sunscreen, picked by the editors of "Women's Health" magazine as one of the best anti-aging sunscreens. It combines Neutrogena's proprietary sunscreen complex with moisturizers in a sheer formula that dries to a matte finish and won't clog your pores.

Avon Anew Alternative Photo-Radiance Treatment SPF 15 AM

Avon's facial cream performed excellently in Begoun's tests, and she calls it a "well-formulated daytime moisturizer." She liked its inclusion of effective sunscreen ingredients, combined with wrinkle-fighting alpha hydroxy acids. Additional peptides and antioxidants help to protect your skin cells from further damage and may also help repair existing signs of aging. Avon also adds mineral pigments to instantly even out and brighten your skin tone.

Dermalogica AGE Smart Multivitamin Power Firm

Begoun says Dermalogica's multivitamin cream is "very good." Its list of skin-conditioners and cell health-boosters is long and includes herbal extracts, skin-brightening vitamin C, wrinkle-combating antioxidants like vitamin A and vitamin E, and moisturizing plant oils. Begoun also notes that Dermalogica adds silicone, which can help fill your fine lines for an instantly smoother appearance to your face.
