The Best Skin Sculpting Creams To Try For Younger-Looking Skin

Think face sculpting creams are too good to be true? Well, you’re partly right, of course. There’s no such thing as a facelift in a jar. At least, not yet. But that doesn’t mean skin sculpting creams are useless.

Packed with wrinkle-fighting, collagen-boosting antioxidants and peptides, skin sculpting creams can make a big difference to how our skin looks and feels.

How do skin-sculpting creams work?

Skin sculpting creams usually contain film formers, such as nylon-12. They create a film on the skin that tightens it, making fine lines and wrinkles look smaller. The only problem? Once the film is removed, your wrinkles are still there, still as big as ever.

That’s why the best skin sculpting creams are also infused with antioxidants and peptides that naturally boost the production of collagen, the substance that keeps skin elastic and firm.

What are the best skin sculpting creams?

Effective and affordable, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream contains all the ingredients mentioned above: film-formers to temporally tightens skin, antioxidants vitamin E and green tea to fight the free radicals that cause wrinkles, and palmitoyl peptide-4, a peptide that has been shown to increase collagen production (Source) for younger-looking skin.

Another favorite is Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme Oil-Free Broad Spectrum SPF 15. The secret? Argireline. Dubbed Botox in a bottle, it’s a muscle relaxer. It prevents muscles from contracting, which relaxes and soften wrinkles (Source). It works better on thin, not thick, skin. Still, with its combination of peptides, antioxidants, and SPF, it’s well worth a try.

Peptides are the secret of Marcelle Revival Pro-Sculpt Night Care. It contains acetyl tetrapeptide-9, which has been shown in studies (conducted by the manufacturers) to increase the production of collagen. A 2.2 dose boosts it by a whopping 49%! (Source). It’s also packed with moisturizing ingredients that leave your skin softer, smoother, and well-hydrated.
