Best Anti Ageing Ingredients


If you want to keep ageing skin at bay, regardless of whether you are 25 or 65, it is essential that you follow an effective skincare routine. Wash, scrub and oil-control/tone are your 3 main steps. Although, depending on your age, you will need particular ingredients in your anti-ageing purchases.

What are the Best Anti-Ageing Ingredients that you Need?

Your products should evolve with your skin as your skin will need different things at varying stages of your life. Below I’ve created a table to simplify what ingredients you should look out for when buying your anti-ageing skincare.

What You Should Avoid

20s to 30s

Make sure there is retinol, vitamins C and E and antioxidants in your skin products.

Avoid alpha-tocopherol (an oil formulation of vitamin E, which can cause breakouts).


Use peptides, ceramides, humectants, retinol and growth factors. Avoid drying acids and products with low percentages of actives.

50s & above

Your best friends are at least two different types of antioxidants, peptides, retinol and SPF. Avoid anything that is designed for acne skin or that is simply too drying (essentially avoid products targeted for oily skin).
