When it comes to anti-aging products, we’re all in and ready to slather any serum, lotion or ampoule that comes our way. Here are some products of a varying price range you should invest in for maintaining your superhuman youthful glow. And remember consistency is key — you’re not going to preserve or turn back time if you’re not religious with your skincare!
Timeless Skin Care 20% Vitamin C Plus E Ferulic Acid Serum
It probably costs less than your usual facial, but this incredibly affordable Vitamin C serum packs a punch. It’s a good duplicate for the coveted Skinceuticals serum, but be sure to keep it in the fridge wrapped in foil to prevent oxidising.
The Ordinary Buffet Multi-Technology Peptide Serum
One of the brand’s bestsellers, the Buffet is a powerful all-in-one treatment tackles multiple signs of ageing. It’s truly a feast for the skin, with peptide complexes that offer a multitude of benefits, including Matrixyl 3000 to stimulate collagen synthesis and hyaluronic acid to offer the heroic hydration that ‘plumps up’ fine lines and diminishes depth of furrows. Use 2 – 3 drops so it doesn’t get tacky.
Mario Badescu Rose Hip Nourishing Oil
High in beta-carotene, this should be used as a precursor step before your vitamin A (retinols/oids). Tailor this to an anti-aging routine instead of using it on its own and you’ll see a world of difference.
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment
Skim through the reviews on Sephora and you’ll find a massive outpouring of love for this little bottle. You can use as an intense weekly treatment mask, a daily or every other day serum, a spot treatment, or layer under a mask for a facial treat at home. It’s effective in improving texture, tone and clarity.
