It’s a common theory that you don't have to worry about anti-aging products until you get to a certain age. This is a myth because preventative skin care is far better than when you are already experiencing changes in your skin. That’s why it’s important to start using anti-aging products early on...but if you haven’t started until your later years, that’s fine too! Just like it’s never too early to start, it’s never too late to start either! Below are some of my favorite anti-aging products, and I know you’ll love them as much as I do!
- Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane by The Ordinary- After hearing rave reviews about this brand over the years, I gave in and decided to finally try a few of their products. This one is, by far, one of my favorites from the brand. This solution has a 2% concentration of advanced retinoid active complex called Granactive Retinoid which has been proven to offer better results against the effects of aging than regular retinol. That, paired with the squalane, means you receive all the anti-aging benefits without any of the irritation and drawbacks that are common with using retinol treatments. This is also a great product to use for those with acne prone skin, like me. I’ve paired this with numerous creams and skincare routines throughout the seasons and it always works well with any combination that I’ve used, so I know it will be a great addition to your routine too! Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane $9.60 is available at www.theordinary.deciem.com
- Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream by Olay- This has been a staple in my routine for many years, and with good reason! Known as “The Red Jar”, this treatment is a favorite with over 50 million jars sold. This cream is infused with Vitamin B3, Hyaluronic Acid, Amino-Peptides, and Antioxidants, and visibly helps in diminishing wrinkles and fine lines with just one use. The formula is designed to deliver moisture 10 layers deep into your skin’s surface, with total skin transformation in less than a month. Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream $33.49 is available at www.olay.com
- Sexapeel by Sonia Roselli- My favorite product from the very first time I used it, this treatment is a must have for anyone of any age, sex, skin type, and tone! This instant exfoliator noticeably takes off all the dead skin, leaving your face smooth and supple...and is an absolute must have before makeup application! This AHA exfoliator is cruelty-free and paraben free, and contains apple, lemon, and kiwi extracts. Exfoliating is a necessary step in any anti-aging regimen because when you get rid of all the dead skin on the surface, the serums, oils, and moisturizers you use are far more effective. Plus, you can use it on more than just your face! I use it on my elbows, hands, feet, legs, and even my whole body when I’m feeling like giving myself a full body spa treatment! It also works great in keeping tattoos looking fresh and vibrant, because it sloughs off the dead skin on wherever you use it. I use this on both my clients and myself, and a whole bottle has lasted me well over a year, even with regular use! Go grab a bottle today...you won’t regret it!

- Restore & Renew Multi Action Face & Neck Day Cream SPF 30 by No7- Now that we’ve touched base on exfoliating, it’s only fitting that you use an anti-aging moisturizer that also protects your “new” and exposed skin against the sun’s harmful rays. Supercharged with the brand’s clinically proven serum to target aging skin on both the face and neck, this cream works to restore your skin’s lipid levels while a unique blend of calcium, ceramides, and amino acids work to provide essential nutrients to your skin...giving a smoother, brighter, and firmer overall look. Great for even the most sensitive skin, this treatment is ideal for daily use. Restore & Renew Multi Action Face & Neck Day Cream SPF 30 $26.99 is available at www.us.no7beauty.com
