Hoping for better skin as you age? Transform your skin starting with your home care regime and look more gorgeous with each passing day!

1. Retinoids

If retinoids aren’t part of your skincare regime yet, they should be. This vitamin A derivative increases collagen production, speeds up cell turnover to even out discolouration caused by UV rays and unclogs pores. In fact, Tretinoin was the first retinoid approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles.

Age defy by Sloane Inc. combines Tretinoin with a powerful, natural moisturizing agent which not only fights wrinkles, but also effectively tones, lifts and firms skin.

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, designed to work through the night, smooths and visibly reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles.

Moisturizing hyaluronic acid and squalene in Sloane Inc.’s Eye Renewal Vitamin A Cream makes this retinol treatment gentle enough for the sensitive skin around the eyes.

2. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

These acids loosen the bonds between the complexion dulling dead skin cells that accumulate with age, so they can be shed, improving texture, help fade blotches and adding radiance. On top of all that, they also allow other anti-aging ingredients to penetrate faster and work more effectively.

Olay’s Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir, a light lotion with glycolic acid and powerful moisture retaining ingredients, is a gentle option when your skin is dry.

Sleeping Peel by Sloane Inc. is an oil free aloe vera gel with glycolic acid that helps to increase the rate of natural dead skin exfoliation while helping to increase moisturization by renewal of native skin collagen to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum exfoliates the skin using AHAs combined with antioxidant botanicals, resulting in less fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Antioxidants

Antioxidants disable free radicals, which are molecules generated by the sun, pollution, allergens and other irritants, to help prevent lines and wrinkles. Examples of antioxidants include Vitamin C, E, green tea, coenzyme Q10 etc. Vitamin C, a favourite among doctors, not only an essential component in collagen production, it also fights free radicals and has whitening properties.

Vitamin C Elixir by Sloane Inc. with an active hydra-stabilized Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) helps to reduce the visible signs of photo aging by fighting destructive free radicals.

IS Clinical Skincare’s Pro-heal Serum combines Vitamin C with Vitamin A for brightening, anti-aging and healing effects.

Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum contains a blend of antioxidants, Idebenone and green tea, to help reduce puffiness and fight fine lines in the eye area.

4. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid, a hot skincare ingredient, hydrates and plumps dry aging skin by drawing water to the skin. For best results, use liberally wherever your skin is dry and needs hydrating. Hyaluronic acid isn’t irritating and wouldn’t compromise the effectiveness of other skincare ingredients you may be using.

Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel contains hyaluronic acid that plumps while panthenol strengthens dehydrated skin.

Miracle Lift by Sloane Inc. has age-defying ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and peptides that work wonders on your skin, leaving it glowing, smooth and lifted. This is as close to ‘youth in a bottle’ as you’ll get!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion plumps up the skin around the eyes to help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

5. Sunscreen

More than 90% of the wrinkles and dark spots attributed to aging is caused by sun exposure. Sunscreen helps to protect the skin from harmful UV rays which destroy collagen and elastin fibres and damage DNA.

Clarins Sunscreen Cream High Protection SPF30 provides advanced sun protection with an innovative plant-based complex to avoid premature skin aging.

The light formula of La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral is absorbed quickly and has a mattifying effect on the skin.

Sloane Inc. Sunblock SPF 70 offers a mega dose of sun protection in a matte base. This 100% chemical and fragrance-free, water and sweat proof total blocker blends 3 antioxidant teas, an invisible shine-absorbing micro mesh and UV reflectors to help keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.

  1. I’ve had the chance to try both RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and the day one with spf. The day one really doesn’t do justice to the brand because I feel I got better results with their original night cream one. This one has shown results instantly. My face appears smoother, and more even toned. I’m in my mid-20’s but have already noticed small fine lines creeping in and decided its time to start a skin regime to help myself age more gracefully. Well my lines look more filled in and skin appears more plumper. I also noticed I have not broken out as much as I used to prior to using it thanks to the retinol. If you use this make sure you moisturize and wear a good high spf or you will have sensitive skin that sunburns quick. Another good use for this is for scars and stretch marks. I’ve read that research shows retinol softens scar marks over time. So I decided to try it on a problem spot mixed with moisturizer and its true it works, not 100%, but still a ton bettter then before. So yeah ladies get it where you can.

  2. I have always had such finicky skin, it clogs easy and is flaky. Plus I have sun damage. Both the clogs and flakiness drive me crazy. I want smooth skin with out the hassle of babying it all the time. Especially after I put on my base.

    I have been using this Olay’s Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir for 10 days. I really, really like it. My clogs are smaller and smaller and not refilling! The lines are smother and most greatful of all, no flakiness! I use 2 pumps before bed, it’s very moisturizing and comfortable on my face and neck.

    I am hoping this continues with the good results, I am very happy with it so far! Wished I had bought it sooner. The price scared me away, but I was wrong it is a beautiful product!

    Update: been using faithfully every night since I purchased. I really recommend it. My clogs are truly less and if I do get some they are very small. It has totally gotten rid of my flaky. Nothing ever has done this before. I have so many other moisturizers now, that just sit there. I will not use them again. My pores are smaller too, I am very happy I found this product, really got rid of my major skin issues.

  3. I have special feeling with Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum product. I think I only used this alone for 2-3 times at night. I love the soft, smooth feeling of my skin after I applied. But I got a feeling if I use it at day time. My skin will get oily faster. After 3 days used, I bought the Turbo Booster C powder from Philosophy, and mixed with this serum (2 pumps), and only use them in the morning. It turned out AMINZING!!! I’m totally in love with the serum and the powder, working perfectly together! I have combination skin, got some dry patches on cheeks but very oily T-zone. After 2 months used, my skin is brighter and much smoother. No more dry patches and much less oil on my skin.

    I don’t know how this serum works alone by itself. Because I haven’t used it long enough to see any result. But I love it with the vitamin C powder. I am 100% sure I will repurchase. Even I want to try different serum, but I would purchase this one for back up for sure.

  4. I have also used this alone or under my `Multi Active night comfort` moisturizer, and the results were great each time. It makes your complexion really smooth, shrinks your pores somehow, gives you that velvet look, very pretty. Great product once your skin needs a little boost. 🙂

  5. I use the Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum and I am thrilled with the results. I wanted to take care of my baggy under eyes and after using this product, my eyes look amazing. The bags are completely gone. I have used many other cosmetic eye creams and this is by far the best I have ever experienced. I do follow-up with the Prevage eye cream to add moisture.

  6. I started using Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum several years ago and was impressed with the results. The eye serum provides hydration and has improved the texture and condition of my under eye area. I use it in conjunction with the Prevage Eye Cream and just wish the products were a bit more affordable. I am always looking for something better in skin care, but my search for an eye cream / serum is over! Prevage works for me!

  7. Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum is an excellent treatment serum. The texture and tone of my skin has improved greatly- it’s softer and smoother, and the skin tone is much more even. It has a brighter appearance too – more luminous. As for my fine lines and wrinkles, their appearance is starting to diminish considerably. I have no doubt this will continue to happen with time and use. Wonderful product as it really works well!

  8. I bought this after hearing the hype of La Roche Posay sunscreens. Looks like we all bought the wrong one 🙁

    This gave me heavy greasy skin, interfered with blending my make up, and serious white cast in photos. I would save it for my chest, but I don’t want my face to be super dark compared to my chest 🙁 Waste of money.

  9. Yes, La Roche Posay sunscreens does have a whitish cast, but it subsides after application. What I like about this is the subtle matte finish and the fact that there is no stinging at all on my roseacea – prone skin. It’s kind of a thin liquid, but that makes it easy to apply and ensure even coverage. If I’m not doing anything special I can almost feel like I can skip putting on makeup.
