Skin esthestician Diandra Politano, owner of Diandra Politano, Sydney, NSW, sees a lot of skin (up close and personal) on a daily basis. From dehydration and pigmentation to adult acne and sensitivity she knows that no two faces are the same. She also knows when it's time to call in the skincare big guns. Here, she gives the low down on the best anti-ageing ingredients and when to add them to your beauty arsenal:
"In my personal opinion a great age to start [a targeted anti-ageing regime] would be around 25 years old. Depending on your genetics and lifestyle, your skin cell turnover starts to slow down and change by the age of 25" Politano explains.
From your late twenties onwards, she suggests introducing a low grade yet preventative serum. Consider formulas that include ingredients such as Vitamin C, niacinamide or hyaluronic acid. We recommend: Kora Organics Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum, Endota New Age Peptide 8 Hyaluronic Serum and Priori Q+SOD fx220 Brightening Serum. She stresses the importance of a daily SPF 'rain, hail or shine' as the ultimate anti-ageing product for every age. Try: Endota New Age Daily Defence Cream SPF 50+ Sunscreen.
From 30 years old onwards Politano recommends adding vitamin A products into your daily routine or switching to a stronger dosage. Try: Pixi Collagen and Retinol Serum.
