EXFOLIATING TONER

Try: Pixi Glow Tonic

Toners have earned a bad reputation for stripping skin bare and leaving it raw. But toners and essences have had an upgrade, and the latest formulas use a combination of exfoliating acids, plus soothing ingredients, to deeply – but gently - cleanse and refine skin, keeping it smooth and balanced.

SMART MOISTURISER

Try: Philosophy Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker Age-Resetting Night Time Moisturiser

A basic moisturiser is good, but one that's packed with anti-ageing ingredients, like peptides, hyaluronic acid or antioxidants, is better. For maximum efficacy, don't use on dry skin; apply your regular toner and serum, then layer moisturiser while skin is still damp and can better absorb the moisture.

VITAMIN C

Try: The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

One of anti-ageing's all stars, this potent antioxidant helps protect the skin from free radical damage caused by pollution and UV exposure, boost collagen production, even out skin tone and fade pigmentation, and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Use it every morning under SPF.

VITAMIN A

Try: Pixi Collagen & Retinol Serum

Another skincare superstar, vitamin A, or retinol, is the gold standard when it comes to anti-ageing, clinically proven to help speed up cell turnover, diminish pigmentation, pores, age spots, acne (and the scars they leave behind), fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin's texture, and thicken the dermis for a plumper complexion.

EYE TREATMENT

Try: Niod Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate

Skin around the eyes is thinner and more sensitive than anywhere else on the face - it's why the area is one of the first to show the signs of ageing. Choose an eye cream that targets your concerns, then gently dab the product around the orbital bone, taking it up to and under the brow bone, too.
