There are new products launched weekly that promise to combat specific signs of ageing. But how do you know what works for you? We’ve done the legwork so you don’t have to!
Using a toner after cleansing is important to restore pH levels and avoid excess drying of the skin after washing. This Ole Henriksen Balancing Force Oil Control Toner formula is boosted with neem seed oil and a powerful blend of acids, perfect for absorbing oil and closing pores without drying or stripping skin of natural moisture.
Best lip service
The skin on our lips lacks the protective barriers that enrich the rest of our face, and have fewer sweat glands, meaning even less moisture. This Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment, with its cooling metal applicator, smooths fine lines around the mouth, restoring and hydrating the lips and skin, so you can leave feathering for your pillows!
A green option
This 100 per cent vegan Youth To The People Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Age Prevention Cleanser is a vitamin booster and juice facial. Containing kale, spinach, green tea, alfalfa, and packed with essential vitamins, this cleanser is almost good enough to drink! It also doubles as a great makeup remover.
Serums are suitable for most skin types. They’re high in active ingredients and are easily absorbed. This new Paula’s Choice Skincare Resist Omega + Complex Serum formula is rich in omega acids and essential fats, both vital for your skin’s daily diet. Use after cleansing and toning, and follow with your moisturiser. Remember, it’s important to stick to a routine for a few months to notice real results.
Master of moisture
This recent release from NIVEA – NIVEA Cellular Anti-Age Volume Filling Pearls – includes the powerful anti-ageing ingredient hyaluronic acid, a humectant that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. These deeply moisturising pearls work on a cellular level to renew firmness and elasticity and reduce fine lines and skin contours. Skin is left with an overall feeling of lightness.
