The First Signs of Ageing

03569 - Beauty Week Life_Article 800x325_First signs of ageing.jpg

If you have minimal signs of ageing and just want to be proactive, you’ve come to the right place. We believe that taking a preventative and protective approach will serve long-term beneļ¬ts to your skin and help delay the need for stronger measures once more noticeable signs of ageing kick in. These are our top anti-ageing products you need to try;

Retinol

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is known to be one of the best anti-ageing ingredients due to its ability to boost collagen production and promote cell turn over. This results in more even, smoother skin and helps reduce the appearance of sun spots. However, it can make your skin more photosensitive, so it’s important to apply it at night and wear sunscreen during the day.

Pro Tip: If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, Retinol is not the ingredient for you, opt for an alternative ingredient such as Niacinamide.

For Beginner

The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane 30ml

Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinary’s Retinol 0.2% in Squalane features highly stable retinol to help minimise the look of fine lines, dark spots and tackling blemishes.

For Sensitive Skin

La Roche-Posay Redermic R 30ml

Contains pure retinol to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and fade premature dark spots for a visibly smooth skin texture.

For Dry Skin

Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum 30 Piece

This luxurious, lightweight, semi-translucent serum combines two of the biggest names in skincare in one, easy-to-use capsule: Retinol, the clinically proven wrinkle-smoother, and moisture-boosting ceramides. Formulated to help protect against the dryness often associated with retinol.

Pro Strength

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment 30ml

A patented, modern retexturising formula: high-grade pure Retinol, blended into a stabilised delivery system to time-release its power over an extended period. This creates an optimum balance of potency and comfort for proven effects, at home.

SPF

If Retinol is the Super Hero ingredient when it comes to anti-ageing, SPF (at least 30) is the Avenger of them all! So, if you’re still on the fence about incorporating a morning SPF, you should start now. Sunscreen can slow down the development of wrinkles and fine lines plus prevent sun spots and uneven skin tone.
