THE IN-TRAY

The best anti-ageing serums for mature skin

FROM DULLNESS AND LOSS OF ELASTICITY TO FINE LINES AND SUNSPOTS, THESE POTENT SERUMS AND OILS ARE AS ANTI-AGEING AS THEY COME (AND WILL EASILY SLIP INTO YOUR CURRENT ROUTINE). DISCOVER THEM NOW.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

As we spend more time on Earth, our skin needs some extra help to stay strong and resilient. Enter Shiseido’s newly reformulated Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate: a lightweight serum infused with heart leaf extract to help blood circulation and fermented rosella water, a form of probiotic extract that protects and balances skin. Strong skin leads to better hydration and improved radiance over time — and we could all use a bit of that as we get older!

Summer Fridays CC Me Serum

Bright, bouncy skin is something we strive for at any age — and the best ingredient to help with achieving it is vitamin C. It helps with a plethora of things that come with ageing: dehydration, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles – plus it visibly brightens your complexion and is known to help trigger collagen production. This supercharged serum from Summer Fridays also contains niacinamide — the ultimate does-it-all ingredient — to help balance oil, reduce the appearance of pores and help tackle the appearance of pigmentation.

Moon Juice Acid Potion Resurfacing Exfoliator

Fine lines are just that: fine! But as we age, they start to multiply (thanks to living a long and happy life!). The key to lessening their appearance is through deep exfoliation to actively resurface the skin and reveal a bright, refined-looking complexion. This chemical exfoliant from Moon Juice contains a potent mix of 25 percent AHAs and BHAs to help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and pores. Added reishi mushroom, niacinamide and tocotrienols help to hydrate, soothe and balance skin at the same time.

Dr. Dennis Gross Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Texture Renewal Serum

Clinically proven to help treat wrinkles, acne, texture and dullness, there’s not much retinol can’t do! This clever ingredient helps speed up skin cell turnover and encourage collagen production, effectively ‘tricking’ your skin into thinking it’s a younger version of itself. In this serum from Dr. Dennis Gross you’ll find retinol, bakuchiol — a plant-based retinol alternative — and ferulic acid to help build skin proteins, smooth texture and visibly reduce the look of blemishes and fine lines.

VERSO Skincare Super Facial Serum

Another retinol power player is this serum all the way from Stockholm by VERSO Skincare. This innovative brand does retinol a little differently to most; they use a patented stabilised vitamin A complex that’s eight times more effective than standard retinol. Try this one in your daily routine if fine lines, sunspots and loss of elasticity are on your list of skin concerns. Added hyaluronic acid and peptides help to moisturise deeply and minimise fine lines and dry patches that come with dehydration (which become more common as we age).

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Oil

A good routine should always have a nourishing face oil in the mix — and if you’re currently experiencing a loss of radiance then the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Oil is one to keep on your radar. It contains lavandin (a strain of lavender historically used for calming properties) and a unique Mediterranean alga called Padina pavonica that has anti-ageing benefits. A great choice especially coming into winter when our skin struggles to maintain moisture levels on its own!

Goldfaden MD Needle-less

If the name wasn’t already a giveaway, this concentrated serum is all about lifting, toning and tightening the appearance of skin sans an invasive procedure. The hero ingredient is hexapeptide 3 — a synthetically-derived peptide that helps reduce the likelihood of wrinkles by limiting facial muscle contractions and firms the appearance of sullen skin. It also contains seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid to soothe, soften and plump the skin.

APOTCARE Hyalu Repair Deep Hydration Serum

A blend of three forms of hyaluronic acid (hello, hydration!), niacinamide, glycerin and AHAs in this restorative serum tackles dullness, dryness and lacklustre skin in a flash. Once applied, you can expect your complexion to appear more supple, plumped and even a little more radiant thanks to its deeply hydrating yet lightweight formula.
