You’ve probably tested them all out – skin smoothening chemicals, home remedies, and yes, even trying not to smile too much. You may even have gone to the extremes of skin surgery, but whether you’re prone to early wrinkles or you’re simply aging, some things are impossible to get rid of that easily.
When you think of the “out there” solutions for wrinkles, you’ve probably heard that hemorrhoid cream can actually smoothen out those stubborn wrinkles, and as wacky as it sounds, it’s true.
Preparation H cream is generally used to treat internal and external hemorrhoids, but it may also be very useful when it comes to smoothening out your skin.
How Preparation H Smoothens Wrinkles
Certain active ingredients in the cream play an important role in this process.The main one is Bio-Dyne, which helps thicken your skin, heal it, and close wounds; it also reduces the volume of wrinkles.
It contains peptides, so it won’t work any magic on your skin overnight, but after a week or even 10 days, you’ll see a noticeable reduction in your wrinkles.
Apply to all the areas where you wish to smoothen out wrinkles and where you don’t want any wrinkles to start appearing. What’s great about Bio-Dyne is that it boosts the natural collagen production of your skin, thereby keeping your skin smooth, soft, and healthy.
Note: test the cream on a very small section of your skin to ensure that it doesn’t have an adverse reaction before applying it to other areas. Test the cream by leaving it on for at least 20-30 minutes since not all reactions are instant.
After you’ve applied the cream, let it be for a while – don’t wash it off soon after since this may reduce its effect. That being said, don’t leave it on forever and don’t use it too often since this may lead to other side effects such as dehydration and dryness of the skin, which can cause rashes.
When Preparation H May Be Used
You can use the cream during the day or at night – if you use it during the day, you will notice a slightly oily look. At night, you can apply it just before going to bed (make sure you wash your face beforehand to get rid of any bacteria).
It can even smoothen out the fine lines that appear under your eyes – just make sure that the cream never actually comes in contact with your eyeballs.
A Word of Caution
The formulation of the US version of Preparation H was changed to no longer contain Biodyne. To get the ingredient which is beneficial for wrinkles make sure to buy the Canadian version of Preparation H, which still contains Biodyne. Click below to get the Canadian version!
