If your signs of ageing are your primary concern for your skin, this anti-ageing skincare routine is for you. By studying ingredients with anti-ageing claims, we’ve concluded which ingredients actually work. Then, we incorporated them into our range of high-powered, all natural products. Your skin has carried you through life, and it's time to show it the love and attention it deserves.
Step 1: cleanser
Cleansing is an important first step in your anti-ageing skincare routine. Our Facial Cleansing Gel gently foams to thoroughly cleanse your skin without stripping or drying. The first ingredient in this product is aloe vera. Aloe is popular in skincare for its hydrating abilities. Jojoba oil in this cleanser helps soothe and moisturise your skin. It does this by sending signals to your follicles to let them know your skin doesn't need additional sebum for hydration. As a result, your skin refrains from producing excess oil, which will help to prevent clogged pores. Vitamin C extracted from Kakadu plum helps clarify and refine your skin texture, reducing signs of fine lines.
Step 2: Serum
This step will differ for morning and evening in your anti-ageing skincare routine. If you're trying to keep your routine to minimal products, you could choose one and use it both morning and night. However, for best results, we recommend alternating between the two!
Our Corrective Serum is the ideal serum to use in your morning anti-ageing skincare routine. This aloe-based serum is packed with potent active ingredients that support collagen production and skin repair. In addition, pomegranate seed oil is particularly high in Vitamin C. This helps to protect your skin from free-radical damage caused by the sun and environmental pollution.
An ingredient you may not have heard of before is Quercus. Derived from oak, Quercus is fast making a name for itself as a powerful ingredient in many anti-ageing products. This ingredient contains peptide complexes, which help support your skin's collagen production. In turn, this diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves your overall skin tone and texture.
Our Corrective Serum also contains hyaluronic acid and a combination of hydrating oils to provide additional hydration support. Hyaluronic acid works by binding to moisture molecules and drawing them into your skin. As a result, your skin has a visibly more hydrated and plump appearance.
For your evening anti-ageing skincare routine, apply 2-4 drops of our 0.4% Retinol Serum. Retinol is a hero ingredient known for its anti-ageing and refining ability. We use a version of encapsulated retinol that will slowly release over time to rejuvenate and repair your skin.
Previously, retinol was known to cause sensitivity in some peoples' skin. Thankfully, recent years have seen several scientific advancements, helping us understand more about how it works. Our product uses a 0.4% concentration of retinol in its encapsulated form, which helps avoid any nasty side effects.
Retinol is a critical ingredient in anti-ageing products. Thanks to its ability to penetrate deep into the skin, it delivers superior results for refining fine-lines and wrinkles.
This ingredient helps ward off acne and is a natural antioxidant. It also improves your skin's bioavailability and enhances stability over time with continued use.
As we mentioned earlier, retinol is an extremely powerful ingredient. Because of this, incorporating retinol in your skincare routine can make your skin more sensitive to UV rays. In addition, sunlight can also decrease the efficacy of the ingredient. For these reasons, retinol is best used at night. If you choose to use retinol in your morning routine, we strongly recommend you follow up with an SPF50+ sunscreen. You should continue to reapply throughout the day.
Step 3: moisturiser
Seal in the vitamins and minerals by finishing up your anti-ageing skincare routine with our Hydrating Moisturiser. This product contains a selection of natural oils that support, protect, and nourish healthy skin. Above all, our unique blend of jojoba, avocado and rosehip oil assist in regulating sebum and hydrating the skin. In addition, Aloe vera works to naturally soothe your skin whilst Kakadu plum smooths and evens out your skin tone.
