Currently, the market is flooded with numerous cosmetic products promising to reduce wrinkles and make the skin youthful and hydrated. Most of them come with hefty price tags, yet their effectiveness is not always guaranteed. In contrast, experts claim that just one natural ingredient can eliminate wrinkles better than some trendy moisturizing agents, according to Daily Express.

What product helps eliminate wrinkles

Experts recommend using aloe vera for skin protection and rejuvenation. This plant also soothes and heals sunburns. Aloe is also used to treat dry skin and eczema.

A scientific study published in the Annals of Dermatology in 2009 showed that applying aloe vera gel can smooth the skin. The team of scientists concluded that daily application of aloe vera gel significantly reduced the appearance of wrinkles within 90 days.

In the study, 30 women over the age of 45 received two different doses of aloe vera gel for 90 days. One group received a low dose (1200 mg per day), while the other received a high dose (3600 mg per day).

Wrinkles and facial elasticity were measured before and at the end of the experiment, and skin samples were taken.

Scientists concluded that aloe gel significantly reduces wrinkles and improves skin elasticity in individuals aged by light exposure, due to increased collagen production in photo-protected skin and decreased expression of the MMP-1 gene, which breaks down collagen.

Aloe increases collagen production

Another study in 2015 showed that applying aloe gel to the skin significantly reduced the appearance of wrinkles and increased collagen levels.

Research published in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology revealed the results of applying aloe vera gel powder (AVGP) on Japanese women with dry skin.

Scientists found that women who consumed the powder experienced a doubling of collagen production.

"An increase in arm skin hydration was observed at 8 weeks in the AVGP group, whereas a slight decrease in arm skin hydration was noted in the placebo group," say the researchers.

However, they note that there was no statistical difference between the AVGP and placebo groups in skin moisture. But in subgroup analysis, the change in average wrinkle depth was significantly lower in the AVGP group compared to the control group.
