Is it ever too early to think about anti ageing products? It's definitely something I'm becoming more concerned with. And I've already started incorporating some anti ageing products into my routine. Nothing too serious though - I'm only 26. Plus I have dehydrated skin so a lot of anti ageing products are super hydrating so it helps with that too. So here's a few products I've incorporated into my routine...
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair* | £ 52
This is a cult classic anti ageing serum. It's packed with ingredients that help renew the skin over night. It has a light, watery consistency that is easily absorbed by the skin. This not only helps fight the signs of ageing, it helps boost radiance, even skin tone and leave the skin feeling soft and hydrated. I've not seen anything too dramatic using this but it's hydrating properties are undeniable. My skin is left noticeably soft and smoother! I'm hoping with continued use wrinkles will be delayed for that bit longer!
Caudelie Vinosource Thirst Quenching SOS Serum | £29
This is just a sample size that's lasted me ages and I will definitely be repurchasing the full size! This isn't aimed at ageing skin as such but when my skin is super dehydrated it ages me about 20 years! So by tackling dehydration I'm helping keep those fine lines at bay. This really has worked wonders on my skin. I use it in the morning and evenings before moisturisers and my skin is hydrated, soft and smooth.
Merumaya Retinal Resurfacing Treatment* | £33.50
This is very new edition to my routine but one that has quickly become one of favourites! This contains Retinol which is the only ingredient proven to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Now I am no skincare expert / scientist, but from what I've researched Retinol basically encourages cells to renew quicker, which lifts away dead skin cells to reveal brighter, younger looking skin. It also helps acne and scarring. It's quite a thick cream but it's easily absorbed. I like to use it at night after I've cleansed and before moisturiser or oils. The results have been incredible! My skin looks so much more refined, pump and I've been getting less breakouts. I really can't recommend this enough.
Bravura Lactic Acid 10% (infused with rose water)* | £9.95 | POST
Another product that has really improved my skin and helps fight the signs ageing is this lactic acid. I've spoken before about my trouble with AHAs causing me to breakout but this has been the product that completely changed my mind. Lactic acid basically exfoliates the skin in a gentle way. It's recommended to use this for a couple of minutes each and increase the time to build and intolerance to the Acid, which I've done and now I like to leave it on for hour or so; then remove with warm water. And the results really speak for themselves. My skin is so much softer, brighter and smooth. My dehydration line instantly look more plump. This is also helping with the red marks blemishes leave behind.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream* | £40
Eye care is definitely something I'm not great with, but I've been using this in the hope to banish my dark circles and prevent fine lines in that area. This uses the same ingrediants as the Advanced Night Repair Serum but in an eye cream. It has a rich, gel like texture that feels cooling to apply. I only use this at night because I think it might be a bit rich for under makeup. But this is really hydrating and leaves my under eyes soft and smooth.
Bravura Collagen Moisture Cream | £10.79 | POST
Collagen is also an ingredient in many anti ageing skincare products, this is packed with it along with fatty acids and vitamins that are aimed at plumping and hydrating the skin. It's quite a thick cream but absorbs instantly, leaving my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. It works well under makeup and in the evening alongside other products. For just £10 this is a great cream!
So there's some anti ageing products I've incorporated into my routine.
