So, how do you slow down the ageing process? Well, while you can’t avoid getting older, the good news is, scientists and skincare experts are constantly working with new technologie and innovative ingredients to formulate the best anti-ageing skincare products, on your beauty shelf right now.
If you’re wondering what kind of sunscreen is best for your skin type, or what to use for fine lines, wrinkles or dullness, you’ll find a product below that suits your anti ageing needs.
Here is their list of the best anti-ageing products in South Africa:
Best new anti-ageing product
Beauty insiders are snapping up this deep-penetrating serum for its intensive radiance-boosting properties and how it reduces the appearance of pigmentation and age spots. This serum is also best for dry skin.
Voted the best new anti-ageing product on the market, Skinderm Optimise Brightening Elixir, R580 for 30ml, is an antioxidant cocktail that gives a brighter, healthier, more even-toned complexion.
The wrinkle cream that really works
Got a wedding or a special occasion coming up and want to look your best? What if we told you there was an anti-ageing product that zaps under eye bags, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, hooded eyes and large pores in two minutes?
In our opinion, the best anti-wrinkle cream on the market is Jeunesse Instantly Ageless, R1 287. Yes, it’s pricey, but it lasts for up to nine hours and gets the accolade of “Best Wrinkle Buster”. Liz Ferrett, a high-end retail-cosmetics expert, tested this product and concurs: “Fab! Blurs lines in minutes. It’s ideal ahead of a special event.”
The best eye cream for wrinkles and crow’s feet
This eye cream is definitely good for minimising wrinkles. Eye creams are often forgotten in many skincare regimes, and yet they can have the biggest impact on how old you look. This eye cream is best for dark circles, fine lines and puffiness. You can’t go wrong with QMS Medicosmetics Advanced Intensive Eye Care, R1 695 for 15ml.
The best budget anti-wrinkle cream
We’re always looking for celebrity anti-ageing secrets, and we’ve found out that Pond’s is ageless celebrity Kylie Minogue’s go-to brand when looking for the best anti-ageing day cream.
We think that the best budget anti-wrinkle cream is Pond’s Age Miracle Cell ReGen Day Cream, R189,95 for 50ml, so it got our vote for “Best-Value Anti-Ager”. This anti-ageing cream is also best for dry skin.
Beauty writer Grace Mantjiu says of this anti-ageing cream, “it’s lightweight and absorbs fast, leaving skin looking fresh”.
The best anti-ageing serum
Would you spend over R5 000 on an anti-ageing product? You might if you know it’s a fast-acting wrinkle filler that could give you younger looking skin in two weeks, without going under the knife.
La Prairie Anti-Ageing Rapid Response Booster, R7 458 for 50ml is a wonder anti-ageing serum that really works, and the good news is, a little goes a long way. It’s definitely one of the most effective anti-ageing skin care products on the market.
The best sunscreen for your face
We’re always told to wear sunscreen every day, but most people only slather it on when they’re on holiday. Enter Coverderm Filteray SPF50+ Face Plus, R170 for 50ml, a product that we think is the best sunscreen lotion for your face.
It’s also the best tinted sunscreen, offering you light coverage if you don’t feel like wearing make-up at the pool or on the beach. Designed for everyday use, this sunscreen will offer you the protection from the sun as well as from environmental pollutants while you’re out and about daily.
Ideal for sensitive and normal skin, makeup artist Storm Catherine Pass says it’s a “long-lasting sunscreen and pollution barrier; a fantastic combo!”
The best luxury anti-ageing cream
If you’re looking to make a real investment in your skin, look no further than Clarins Super Restorative Rose Radiance Cream, R1 525. This anti-ageing cream is also great for dry skin and it’s designed to add radiance back to dull skin thanks to a host of natural plant extracts.
This soothing cream is one of our favourites because it really does significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to its powerful regenerative ingredients. Beauty blogger, Chereen Strydom has this to say about it: “A rich, nourishing texture that leaves a luminescent glow.”
