We all like to look our best but ageing beautifully takes time and effort. There are, of course, some easy wins. Firstly, don’t smoke. In addition, make sure you use sunscreen daily. Also, try to eat sensibly and drink in moderation. Last, but by no means least, take regular exercise. But these are just the basics. In fact, the next level involves specialist aesthetic beauty treatments. Some, like facials, are non-invasive with short-lived results. Then there are the injectable options, which include anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. In fact, in the hands of a skilled practitioner, the effects are almost instant and can last for months. You can further enhance your appearance, however, if you look after your skin between treatments. So commit to gentle but thorough cleansing, twice a day. Then complement this with a great topical formula, to moisturise, nourish and protect.
There is such a vast array of products available, choosing the right formulation isn’t always easy. So we’ve put together our personal fab five, to help you choose the best anti-ageing cream for your skin and its needs.
Crème de la Mer
Now, Crème de la Mer is a cult classic and with good reason. In fact, the original formula was born when Aerospace Physicist Dr Max Huber suffered burns in a lab accident. After 12 years, he discovered a fermentation process that transformed sea kelp and a selection of other ingredients into Miracle Broth™. Then, this renewing elixir transformed his skin and an anti-ageing legend was born.
Fans rave about Crème de la Mer’s peerless moisturising properties. After all, it soothes dryness, softens dry lines, and restores radiance. Now, the original Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream is part of a much wider collection that includes eye products, cleansers, and make-up. It’s definitely not a budget option but we think its visible results suggest it’s worth every penny.
Staying with the sea theme, another great anti-ageing option is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. Its ingredients have been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and improve skin firmness, tone and hydration in just 14 days. So what’s not to like? In fact, if you’re considering anti-wrinkle injections, this could be a great candidate for best anti-ageing cream, too. We hear the formula features Mediterranean algae and Gingko Biloba for superior free radical protection. Also, Harper’s Bazaar 150 Best of the Best Beauty Awards 2017 voted it the ‘Best for Mature Skin’.
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
Depending on your skin type, the best anti-ageing cream might not be a cream at all. So, if your skin is very dry or dehydrated, you could instead choose an oil for a better option. Step forward Drunk Elephant’s Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. A lady called Tiffany Masterson founded the brand as she wanted to create cosmetics without toxins and certain other ingredients such as silicones. The result was a new ‘clean-clinical’ beauty collection that is definitely worth the hype.
Hero product Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil delivers clinically proven results to reverse the signs of ageing and offer serious antioxidant benefits. Therefore, it moisturises, rejuvenates and nourishes skin, while restoring a youthful glow. It also relieves redness and blotchiness, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So, this beauty product is definitely on our wish-list.
Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Age-Defying Cream
Unfortunately, lines and wrinkles are not the only telltale signs of ageing skin. Loss of texture and tone can be countered with the help of dermal fillers – an ideal way to add volume and restore youthful contours. However, many anti-ageing creams also claim to lift and firm the skin. One modestly-priced option is Olay Regenerist 3 Point Firming Anti-Ageing Cream Moisturiser. It’s been specifically designed to give dramatically younger looking skin in the areas most prone to ageing: the eyes, jawline and neck. In fact, Olay’s most concentrated amino-peptide complex ever, aims to stop the sag in its tracks.
This Works No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture
In your quest to find the best anti-ageing cream, don’t neglect the night time. In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that skin cells are at their most productive when we’re asleep. Therefore, this means they are more receptive to renewal.
This Works No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture is a fabulously fragrant formulation that firms, smooths, plumps, renews and detoxifies. It even contains retinol, a vitamin A derivative that speeds up cell turnover, boosts collagen production, and promotes skin renewal. So, you simply apply, go to sleep and wake up to a complexion that’s plumper, firmer and more radiant.
