We are all looking for that miracle elixir to freeze our faces to look 21 forever. Unfortunately, we can’t completely stop wrinkles and lines from happening, however we can slow it down! But with so many magical potions out there, which one are the best, and what should I be looking for?
Let’s first understand what exactly aging skin is.
There are a few signs of aging skin with wrinkles and fine lines being the most prevalent. However, loss of radiance, pigmentation, enlarged pores, loose sagging skin also contribute to aging skin. Did you know that the natural aging process starts around the age of 25! However how your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors, lifestyle, diet, and other personal habits. For example, smoking can produce free radicals in the skin which can cause premature wrinkles. As we age, the skin becomes drier and thinner, which allow wrinkles to form. Skin cell regeneration slows down, dead cells sit on the surface, dulling our natural glow. Using anti-aging products that can target these symptoms will slow down the aging process and prevent premature aging.
Let’s look at our favourite anti-aging products.
Toners and Essence
We love the Bioderma Hydrabio Toner. Containing lots of skin conditioning humectants to keep the skin hydrated to prevent dehydrated fine lines. It also contains Niacinamide which is a well-loved ingredient to strengthen the protective barrier of the skin and visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and dullness.
Powered by a potent antioxidant complex of Jasmine and Vitamin C, this watery lotion protects skin from damaging environmental aggressors, while hyaluronic acid and botanical glycerin deeply hydrate all skin types. In addition, Calendula Extract soothes irritation, leaving behind happy, hydrated, and protected skin. Applied immediately after cleansing, the Nuxe Prodigieuse Boost Energising Priming Concentrate prepares skin for the optimal absorption of subsequent skincare products, ensuring that your skin is ready to receive the maximum benefits from the rest of your routine!
A potent antiageing Vitamin A serum, with 0.3% pure retinol, that works to reveal younger-looking, firmer, smoother, and more radiant skin. SVR's Ampoule [A] Lift combines the power of 0.3% retinol (0.1% is released instantly, while 0.2% is encapsulated to slowly release it into the skin). This combination gently smooths, repairs and regenerates even sensitive skin.
A cutting-edge multi-corrective anti-wrinkle serum that can treat four different types of wrinkles: deep wrinkles, fatigue wrinkles, contraction wrinkles and surface wrinkles. The innovative formula features the ground-breaking 2.0 Swirl Technology that combines an anti-wrinkle fluid for long-term anti-ageing care with an instantaneous stretch-effect gel to deliver an immediate lifting action on the skin. Until now, both ingredients have been incompatible in cosmetic skincare, and this is the first time the two can be brought together in a single product for enhanced results.
This ultra-lightweight yet super hydrating, antioxidant-infused Gel Cream is ideal for those who are impacted by the environmental stressors of life like stress, pollution, and lack of sleep. The Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost Multi Correction Gel Cream is infused with the potent antioxidant properties of Jasmine Flower to protect the skin. At the same time, hyaluronic acid refills the skin's water reserves and plumps up signs of dehydration and fine lines. For more mature skin, try the Creme Prodigieuse Boost Night Recovery Oil Balm.
Repair dry and mature skin, with the regenerating, vitamin rich Embryoderme Nourishing Moisturiser from Embryolisse. A vitamin-rich formula containing elastin, collagen, almond oil and shea butter that works overtime to repair your skin!

For our natural skin lovers, the anti-aging face oils from les huilletes are organic and vegan! You can still love the earth whilst keeping your youth! The essential oil and vegetable oil found in mon huillette contain antioxidants and protective properties to protect against the damaging effects of environmental factors. It also prevents premature aging whilst improving the radiance of the skin. There is a face oil for both day and night!
Exposure to sunlight is the single biggest culprit in skin aging! UV damages the elastin fibers in the skin which causes the skin to sag because its unable to bounce back after stretching! Staying protected is easy when you have an enjoyable product to use. This lightweight, illuminating SPF 20 BB cream with self-adjusting pigments, contains mineral pearl pigments that diffuse light and leave your skin looking smooth, bright, and perfected.
