Anti-ageing products may have ingredient lists longer than your arm, but how do you know they’re actually effective? When you’re reading the label or the back of the tube, here are some key names to look out for.
TRY: Glycolic Peel Pads
WHAT: A gentle chemical exfoliator to help retexturise, refine and decongest skin. Got brown pigmentation spots? Glycolic acid is also terrific at removing the extra layers of dead cells that are holding on to all that brown pigment.
TRY: Revitalift Night Cream
WHAT: This vitamin A derivative helps to soften fine lines. Retinol rejuvenates skin cells and increases collagen production, which means brighter, softer, younger-looking skin that’s more protected from the damage that comes with ageing.
TRY: Sugar Scrubs Glow Scrub with Grapeseed Oil
WHAT: An umbrella term encompassing vitamins and enzymes that work to repair environmental damage. This includes Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Green Tea and Co-Enzyme Q10. Antioxidants strengthen the skin’s barrier function by fighting off free radicals, boosting texture and leaving complexion visibly brighter.
TRY: Age Perfect Intense Nutrition Serum
WHAT: Not just a trendy buzzword, peptides are short chains of amino acids that can work to improve cell productivity. We love them for their anti-ageing benefits, such as helping stimulate collagen production and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
TRY: Revitalift Filler [HA] Day Cream
WHAT: A molecule already naturally found in the skin, it draws water to the skin and helps prevent moisture loss. As we get older, the level of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to dry skin and more lines.
