When it comes to ageing, we’re all a little bit different. Whilst it might creep up slowly for some, the menopause can suddenly take its toll on others. The good news is: it’s never too late to start taking good care of your skin and see real improvements (even if you haven’t shown it much love in the past).

For most of us, the first signs of ageing appear in our thirties and forties. This is when our natural production of collagen starts to slow down, leading to a loss of strength and elasticity – and we start to get some hormonal changes too. You might notice larger pores, dryness, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation . But fear not; there are lots of smart, science-based products at your fingertips.

How to get younger-looking skin

The three main things your skin needs more of as you age are: moisturisers, exfoliators and under-eye treatments. As the production of new skin cells slows, there can be a build-up of dead skin – exfoliating ingredients work to sweep this away to reveal fresher, more even-toned skin beneath. Moisturisers and serums, on the other hand, help to hydrate and strengthen skin barriers as they weaken over time. Ready to find the right ones for you and begin your anti-ageing skincare routine?

The best anti-ageing skincare

Whilst a lot of attention gets paid to anti-ageing moisturisers (and quite rightly so) – it’s worth remembering about the cleansers, serums and masks that work their magic too. A multi-pronged approach is a good way to maximise results. Look out for ingredients like hyaluronic acid (great at locking moisture into the skin) and retinol (a form of vitamin A that works to reduce wrinkles and tighten pores).

The best anti-ageing creams for 30s

In your thirties, you might notice the first signs of ageing and want to take some preventative steps — without investing in the pricier, heavy-duty creams made for the decades that follow. These lighter formulas are perfect for dipping a toe in the world of anti-ageing moisturisers.

The best anti-ageing creams for men

Whether you diligently follow a skincare routine or are just beginning your skincare journey, a good moisturiser is key to healthier, fresher-looking skin. Try cleansing and moisturising twice a day — and you’ll soon see a difference. With lots of formulas designed specifically with men in mind, you’re spoilt for choice.

The best anti-ageing creams for women

When it comes to anti-ageing creams, there’s certainly a lot to choose from. But knowing what to look for can make your search a whole lot easier. If you’re after a day cream, it’s worth making sure it contains an SPF to prevent any further signs of ageing. If you’re after a night cream, anything that’s super hydrating is a safe bet.
