If the guy staring back at you in the mirror seems like a weathered, more ragged-looking version of yourself, don’t panic. While your pals fall victim to wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines, you can protect that ruddy glow and mature gracefully into silver foxdom with any (or all) of these products.
The best time to fight aging is overnight: The cells in your body regenerate, working double time to heal any ailments—skin blemishes included. So, apply a nutrient-dense repair cream before bed to magnify the benefits: Brickell’s formula keeps skin hydrated and firm while naturally relaxing the face muscles beneath (preventing the formation of wrinkles) in addition to smoothing the skin (nixing any existing dark spots and wrinkles). It’s lightweight, too, so you can use it as your morning moisturizer for never-ending nourishment.
Another simple age-defying fix is to use a daily face wash. Lab Series’ face wash is part cleanser, part gentle scrub; use it every morning and night to buff away dead skin cells, balance oil levels, and unclog pores and thus less strain on your skin. This yields smoother complexion, which means you keep your youthful appearance all the longer.
Aging brings on drier skin. A daily moisturizer that’s full of antioxidants will not only drench the upper layers of your epidermis with a hydrating tonic, but will also pump nourishing ingredients into your cells, helping skin retain its youthful elasticity.
As you would expect, the Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer provides excellent UV protection to help shield your skin from dangerous rays, but also includes a host of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help improve your complexion. It’s dermatologist tested, fragrance, alcohol, and colorant free too
On first impression, people will notice the strain around your eyes before anything else. For this reason, it should be a target area in your anti-aging regimen. Pat on Perricone MD’s latest eye cream morning and night to prevent and reverse five pesky signs of aging (and tiredness too): dark circles, crow’s feet, fine lines, puffiness, and reduced firmness.
Instead of using your daytime moisturizer at bedtime (since it’s pointless to wear SPF while you sleep), take advantage of the body’s regenerative cycle to wear something more aggressive. Lilyana’s Retinol Cream is gentler than most prescription-grade retinols, but it has all the same benefits: It steadily reduces (and in turn, prevents) acne, wrinkles, and dark spots. While it’s an overnight cream, retinol plays a long game: Give this two months before you see some very serious results, then wear it nightly for everlasting youthfulness.
