AGEING CONCERN: pigmentation
USE: AWE Cosmeceuticals Kaanti Lightening Serum
This specialised serum helps to target the appearance of skin pigmentations such as melisma, freckles, sunspots and hyperpigmentation – to reveal a more even-toned complexion. Containing encapsulated peptides, niacinamide, and liquorice extract, this intense skin lightening serum is easily absorbed into your skin and is also suitable for people prone to scarring from acne.
AGEING CONCERN: dullness
USE: Ultraceuticals Ultra Brightening Serum
Formulated with a unique blend of skin lighteners, pigment blockers and exfoliants to add luminosity, this brightness-enhancing serum is the perfect solution to dull skin that’s anything but radiant. The skin brightening serum contains artocarpus extract, bearberry extract, niacinamide, melissa officinalis, as well as lacic, citric and salicylic acids.
AGEING CONCERN: fine lines
USE: Aromatherapy Associates Fine Line Face Oil
Containing known anti-ageing extracts, evening primrose and ximenia – a wild African plum – both of which are high in essential fatty acids, this nourishing face oil will help to plump up your skin and iron out fine lines in the process. This skin-loving facial oil also contains rose, patchouli and ylang-ylang essential oils, which encourage healthy, glowing skin. It also contains apple and raspberry seed oils, which help to boost the skin’s natural collagen production.
AGEING CONCERN: crow’s feet
USE:Dr LeWinn’s Line Smoothing Complex Corrective Line Filler
Are you after a product that’s equipped to handle more than just fine lines? Perhaps you need a product that can work to convincingly smooth out your deep-set wrinkles – especially around your delicate eye area. This hard-working line filler contains hyaluronic bio-filling spheres and is absorbed through the epidermis. The coolest part? This line filler uses your skin’s own moisture to plump up wrinkles from the inside and leave skin smoother, firmer and more moisturised.
AGEING CONCERN: dryness
USE: Environ Intensive Hydrating Oil Capsules
There is nothing fun about dry skin that feels tight and constricting. It tends to happen most during winter – and as your skin gets older. These hydrating oil capsules contain an easily absorbed formula enriched with a powerful mixture of retinol and vitamins C & E. While energising and hydrating the skin, these oil capsules also work to promote the production of healthy collagen and elastin for firmer, healthier-looking skin.
AGEING CONCERN: deep-set wrinkles
USE:L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Moisturiser
If you’ve ever considered intense laser treatments for your skin, it must be because you’re experiencing deep-set wrinkles and you think lasers are the only solution – but what if they’re not? Why not try a moisturiser that’s so powerful in regenerating your skin and smoothing out wrinkles, it’s been likened to a laser session?
AGEING CONCERN: sagging
USE: Cellex-C AgeLess 15 Skin Signaling Serum
Skin that’s lost its elasticity can make you looked aged beyond your years. We all want plump, firm skin that bounces back into place when pinched, right? This Skin Signaling Serum from Cellex-C is specifically designed to target various receptor sites in the skin and add youthful looking contours to your face. Sulphated Proteoglycans promote firmer, more resilient and radiant looking skin and a unique combination of other active ingredients help to ensure a rosy glow as well as balance uneven skin tone whilst guarding against free radicals and premature ageing.
AGEING CONCERN: rough skin
USE:AUM Anti-Age Organics Gentle Facial Foam Cleanser
Don’t be fooled into thinking that rough skin is a part of growing up. Keep your skin in tip-top shape, even during cleansing with a super nourishing cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, choose a foaming cleanser that is gentle and refreshing on your skin, and leaves your complexion feeling fresh, clean and nourished. AUM’s marine complex, papaya and pomegranate help to deliver smooth, clean and baby soft skin.
AGEING CONCERN: firmness
USE:Alpha-H Gold Rejuvenating Cream
A rich evening moisturiser that is ideal for skin refining, enhanced smoothness and a firm, youthful-looking complexion. This luxurious moisturiser features argan stem cells, which help to boost your natural collagen production and reveal new, youthful skin cells. It also enhances and protects your skin and includes powerful vitamin C to visibly firm, tighten and brighten your complexion.
