Over time, our skin starts to show tell-tale signs of aging. Depending on how well we look after our complexion, these can occur earlier (premature ageing) or later. While it’s not possible to press pause on getting older, there are ways you can reduce some of these complexion concerns. Armed with these tried-and-tested anti-aging products and an effective skincare regime you’ll see results in a matter of weeks so long as you’re consistent. From wrinkles and fine lines to dark spots, scroll down for our edit for the very best serums on BEAUTY BAY to aid you with every anti-aging concern…
DR. JART+ CICAPAIR™ TIGER GRASS RE.PAIR SERUM
Notorious for their skin-soothing formulas, Dr. Jart’s Cicapair Tiger Grass range contains hard-working complexion healers. As we age, our skin’s natural protective barrier weakens, making it more prone to sensitivity. The Re.Pair Serum contains a blend of calming and soothing ingredients, including the Asian herb tiger plant, a powerful active that aids skin recovery. Regular use helps reduce irritation, strengthen and protect.
MARIO BADESCU VITAMIN C SERUM
Pigmentation, otherwise known as age spots and dark spots, are caused by sun damage and tend to be more prominent on aging complexions. Lighten darker areas and brighten your base by incorporating an efficacious vitamin C formula into your daily routine. Mario Badescu’s Vitamin C Serum is rich in 7.5% ascorbic acid, a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals and promotes collagen production. Added hyaluronic acid injects moisture into dry complexions, leaving the skin softer and firmer.
THE ORDINARY RETINOL 1% IN SQUALANE
There’s a reason The Ordinary’s retinol serums are always out of stock. Hailed the best affordable wrinkle-fighting formula (each one comes in around £5), the 1% retinol squalane blend is our must-have. Free from water, the incredibly potent serum plumps, fills fine lines and improves elasticity, leaving more youthful skin in its wake. Apply the anti-aging elixir to cleansed skin each evening, taking care to monitor how your skin reacts and always follow with SPF during the day.
NIOD PHOTOGRAPHY FLUID OPACITY 8%
Ditch dull skin by using a regular cocktail of brightening ingredients like vitamin C and acids. While those are getting to work, perk up a lacklustre complexion with NIOD’s Photography Fluid Opacity 8%. The lightweight serum targets all the visible signs of dullness thanks to a blend of ultra-finely pigmented nano-prismatic hue colour correctors and bronze technology. Once on the skin, these work together to instantly boost radiance and get you glowing ASAP. Use alone or beneath your base.
REVOLUTION SKINCARE PLUMPING AND HYDRATING SERUM - 2% HYALURONIC ACID
One of the biggest building blocks of healthy, youthful skin is hydration. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin loses moisture, elastin and collagen. Revolution Skincare’s Plumping And Hydrating Serum is like a pint of water for your complexion. Enriched with 2% hyaluronic acid, a powerful hydrating ingredient that boosts the skin’s moisture levels, the oil-free serum absorbs instantly and helps maintain hydration for longer.
BY BEAUTY BAY SKINHIT CORRECTING SERUM WITH AHA AND PHA
Rough, bumpy skin can be caused by a build-up of dead skin cells and is usually a sign that your face needs exfoliation, pronto. By BEAUTY BAY’s Skinhit Correcting Serum sloughs away dead skin thanks to AHA glycolic acid and PHA gluconolactone. Effective but gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin, this does-all serum sorts out congestion, leaving your complexion more even, smooth and refined.
