Shed years off your face with these best anti-ageing products to prevent and reverse wrinkles, fine lines and age spots
While you can’t stop Mother Nature from taking its course on your skin, there’s plenty you can do to delay it from wreaking havoc. Botox and fillers aside, you can slow down the aging process with a good wrinkle minimiser and collagen booster. We pick the ten best anti-aging creams and serums to fight fine lines, dark spots, sagging skin and wrinkles.
Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream EX
The magic of this winning formula lies within ginseng – compound K found in its roots penetrates deep into skin to revitalise it, while highly concentrated Ginsenoside Re extracted from its flower helps boost skin’s defence against ageing.
$298 for 60ml, Available at multiple locations including Sulwhasoo Boutique at Capitol Building, TANGS at Tangs Plaza, and Robinsons The Heeren.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
Estee Lauder’s star product isn’t called the number one serum for nothing. It fights all signs of aging through nighttime renewal – think softened wrinkles and fine lines, as well as accelerated fading of dark spots. Slather this on before bedtime to wake up to freshly hydrated skin.
$118 for 30ml, $163 for 50 ml and $209 for 75 ml. Available at Estee Lauder ION and counters islandwide, including Isetan and Metro.
SKII R.N.A. Power Radical New Age
Results from using this cream will only take ten days to appear – fine lines will become less defined, and skin will firm up. It’s all thanks to age-defying power players like shea butter, cholleragen and pitera.
$149 for 50g, Available at all SKII locations including the spa boutiques at Millenia Walk and Shaw Centre, as well as Sephora ION, Metro and Isetan.
Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate
Unlike other retinol concentrates, this formula delivers results without the harsh reactions often faced with its counterparts. Made up of naturally derived ingredients, including Vitamin A from Andean Musk Rose Seed Oil, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and age spots while repairing sun damage and plumping skin.
$121 for 30 ml, Available at Escentials Paragon and TANGS Orchard.
Clarins Double Serum
For a high-powered daily serum, you can’t go wrong with this Clarins heavyweight. It’s made up of two age-defying serums in a single formula, and packs a punch with five anti-aging effects, including firmer skin, a more even complexion and less visible pores.
$121 for 30ml, Available at Clarins Skin Spa at Wheelock Place, and counters islandwide including TANGS and Isetan.
Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum
Loved by beauty insiders and editors alike, this serum contains the secret of anti-aging formulas: retinol. Murad’s renewal serum has the holy trifecta of this magic ingredient – it contains a fast-acting Retinoid, a time-released Retinol, and a Retinol booster to quickly reduce wrinkles, fine lines, brighten skin and even out skin tone.
$190 for 30ml, Available at Robinsons and Sephora stores islandwide
Eucerin Volume-Filler Night Care
Trade sagging skin for sharper facial contours with Eucerin’s Volume-Filler night cream. It does exactly what its name suggests – it targets specific layers of mature skin which naturally loses volume over time. If you’re curious about the science behind it, Oligo peptides strengthen collagen renewal while Hyaluronic acid, AKA the other key ingredient of anti-aging formulations, improves moisture-retention to plump skin and reduce wrinkles.
$75 for 50ml, Available at Watsons and Guardian stores islandwide.
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging serum
This award-winning formula ticks all the right boxes thanks to Idebone: a powerful antioxidant which protects surface skin cells from environmental aggressors like stress, pollution and smoke, and boots firmness and skin repair.
$362 for 50ml, Available at Elizabeth Arden stores islandwide including the new boutique at ION Orchard, Metro Paragon, as well as Robinsons The Heeren.
Don’t be fooled by the tiny size of this high-powered serum – it packs a punch with a single click of its precision nozzle. The formula expands to settle into wrinkles where needed, including around the mouth, eyes and forehead.
$129.90 for 15 ml, Available at Watsons and Guardian stores islandwide.
Cle de Peau Le’ serum
For long-term results, this ultra luxe product is worth the investment. It contains inositol Vitamin B, which helps to reduce signs of ageing, and Chai Hu to firm skin. Use it at the start of your skincare routine, as it absorbs quickly to prep skin surface for more product layering.
$118 for 40ml, Available at Cle de Peau counters at TANGS at Tangs Plaza and Takashimaya.
