Our skin loses collagen and elastin as we age, which provide structure and bounce. Collagen-based products and treatments improve skin elasticity. Collagen supplements, serums and moisturisers are the most popular anti-aging remedies on the market.

Collagen softens and moisturises skin, minimises wrinkles, and adds plumpness. Many skincare and supplement products contain collagen derived from animal sources (bovine, fish), though fermented algae can also be used.

Invest in Dr Dennis Gross Skincare C+ Collagen Deep Cream and pamper yourself. The moisturiser is worth the price with vitamin C, collagen, and amino acids. It is the secret to transforming dry, dull skin into plumper, energised, and wrinkle-free skin.

If you’re a sensitive skin baddie, the First Aid Beauty Ultra Firm Collagen Cream will be a godsend. This moisturiser prevents fine lines and wrinkles and soothes and reduces skin irritation using skin-loving ingredients like niacinamide and colloidal oatmeal.

The Inkey List Collagen Face Serum is a must-have serum for hydrated and refreshed skin that lasts all day and leaves it with a refined tone and improved texture that reduces the signs of aging.

Retinol is brilliant for boosting your skincare routine, reducing pore congestion and giving you a youthful glow. If you’re a beginner, it’s best to use it once a week and gradually increase usage. And remember to protect your skin with a 30 SPF sunscreen when using retinol!

Use retinol once weekly for best results and eventually work up to every other night. Seeing the benefits can take 3 to 6 months, so be patient! To reduce sensitivity, moisturise sensitive areas like your eyes, smile lines, chin, and neck and leave for 15 minutes.

Skinstitut Retinol is perfect for beginners and leaves your skin radiant and healthy. It’s loaded with peptides to strengthen your skin barrier and help you achieve glowing, healthy skin.

For a gentle retinol option, try La Roche-Posay Redermic Retinol B3 serum. It contains low-dose Retinol and Vitamin B3 to soothe, strengthen and hydrate skin without irritating sensitive skin.

Use the Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask to address puffiness and fine lines around the eyes for a nourishing option with anti-aging, moisturising, and brightening ingredients.
