Anti Ageing Skincare Guide: Ingredients, Tips & Insights

When it comes to anti ageing skincare products, using the right ingredients makes a world of difference. Active ingredients are what make an anti-ageing product worth its weight in gold, literally! For a lot of us, our first foray into skincare was as teenagers, when our mum or older sister pulled out the big guns-the Retinoids, Vitamin C and Glycolics that could slow down time, something we would have never thought about back then. It’s true that skincare has changed a lot since we were teenagers; there aren’t just one or two products containing the key ingredients to reversing signs of skin ageing – there are now dozens of new anti-ageing options on the market. This has proven to be both a blessing and a curse, as it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. To simplify things, we’ve done research for you and brought together a list of ingredients that will help keep your skin healthier for longer, along with some insider skin routine tips. The more we know, the better our chances of preserving a youthful appearance. Let’s get started.


Know Your Anti Ageing Skincare Ingredients

A Deep Dive Into Active Ingredients

The right anti ageing ingredients benefit your skin in a variety of ways, from fighting free radicals, removing dead skin cells to encouraging collagen production. There are a number of well-known active ingredients that have shown to be effective at combating premature skin aging symptoms and here we list the top ingredients for the most common ageing skin priority along with skin care products that harness their power.


Arx Anti Aging Regenerative Formula with hand 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant-rich, collagen-producing vitamin that lightens age spots (hyper-pigmentation) and increases collagen production. Increasing collagen production has shown to have a significant impact in reducing signs of premature ageing, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C can be found in many anti-ageing products, but a good product should display a minimum of 15% Vitamin C to effectively reverse signs of premature skin ageing. Anti-ageing products containing Vitamin C will typically be listed as L-ascorbic acid, Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, or Sodium ascorbyl phosphate. Aesthetics RX C Serum 23% is a serum containing a strong antioxidant complex of 23% Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Kakadu Plum Extract (natural Vitamin C). A double dose of this collagen-producing ingredient is key for the appearance of younger-looking skin.



Retinol (Vitamin A), is a powerful antioxidant that treats fine lines and wrinkles, increases collagen production, and helps with anti-ageing concerns such as hyper-pigmentation and acne prone skin. Retinol reverses the signs of premature skin ageing by producing new skin cells, which results in a healthy complexion with the appearance of  fewer wrinkles. Retinol is one of the best ingredients for anti-ageing skin care, but it can be irritating to some people-especially if you have dry or sensitive skin. Our Retinol emulsion serum is brimming with Hyaluronic acid & a Ceramide complex that restores the glow that ageing skin often lacks.


Vitamin B – Niacinamide

Niacinamide helps fight against visible signs of skin ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage. Hydration is key to prevent premature skin ageing, and niacinamide is a humectant attracting moisture to the skin. This skin care ingredient has been shown to increase collagen production and reduce melanin formation, which will help create a more even skin tone. Niacinamide increases skin cell turnover;  dead cells from the surface of the skin are removed which  helps with acne because the process helps keep pores clear.  It also has anti-inflammatory properties which soothe the redness and inflammation associated with acne. With a double dose of the most sought-after ingredient for hydration, Vitamin B; our B Serum provides maximum skin hydration. 


Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is an excellent humectant that attracts water molecules, keeping skin hydrated and plump. This ingredient is naturally found in our body, but as we age this ability to hold moisture diminishes and skin becomes dry and wrinkled. Anti-ageing products containing hyaluronic acid will typically be listed as Sodium hyaluronic acid, Hyaluronate or Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a must have ingredient for anti-ageing skin care. It can be used as a standalone moisturiser to hydrate your skin and make it look more plump and youthful. However, some people choose to include it in their regimen in order to provide a double dose of moisture. Aesthetics RX B Serum contains a powerful humectant with a blend of Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) + Panthenol (Vitamin B5) + Hyaluronic acid + Sodium PCA, giving you the most youthful looking skin possible. 


The Ultimate Anti Ageing Skincare Routine

To reduce visible signs of prematurely ageing skin, your skincare routine should contain products that infuse your skin with antioxidants to fight free radicals, moisturiser to hydrate your skin and protect against environmental pollutants. The best anti-ageing products will have a combination of these powerful ingredients, as well as anti-pollution, brightening agents, and other anti-wrinkle benefits.


Step 1: Cleanse day and night with a revitalising foaming cleanser

Cleansing helps rid your skin of ageing concerns such as sun damage, free radicals, bacteria, and pollution. A revitalising foaming cleanser will thoroughly clean your skin, remove the day’s dirt and oil. Prepare your skin for success by cleansing twice daily. If you live in an environment where pollution is high – such as a city – cleansing will also help your skin defend against the harmful effects of pollution. Our SLS-free Revitalising Foaming Cleanser will remove any traces of excess oil, makeup and bacteria, and is suitable for all skin types. We recommend a double-cleanse in the evening as your skin has had the entire day to become clogged up with pollution, makeup, dust, oil and bacteria.


Step 2: Apply a Vitamin C Serum

Serums infuse the skin with powerful antioxidants that help repair skin damage, fight free radicals, and firm sagging skin. Apply a Vitamin C serum once daily to stop anti-ageing skin concerns such as sun damage, cellular oxidation, free radical damage, and dark spots. A high-quality Vitamin C serum creates a protective layer that keeps moisture into your skin for up to 24 hours. Anti-ageing benefits include plumping fine lines, wrinkles, skin collagen production, and protecting against skin care concerns such as free radical damage, dark spots, and sun damage. Vitamin C is also an excellent brightening agent that will reduce the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles. It is a must-have anti-ageing ingredient for anyone who wants to reveal smoother looking skin with a more even tone and brighter complexion Our C Serum 23% is a serum containing a strong antioxidant complex of 23% Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and Kakadu plum extract (natural Vitamin C). A double dose of this collagen activating ingredient is key for younger-looking skin.


Step 3: Layer with a Vitamin B Serum

After applying your C Serum and before applying a moisturiser, layer your skin with a Vitamin B serum. A Vitamin B serum will help regulate the production of melanin (hyperpigmentation) and provide your skin with a natural glow. A Vitamin B serum should be applied once or twice daily, and is safe and effective for all skin types and skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin. With a double dose of the most sought-after ingredient for hydration, Vitamin B, our B Serum provides maximum skin hydration. Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) revives skin moisture by stimulating new fibroblasts and collagen secretion to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother appearance. Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) and Hyaluronic acid work to restore the moisture in your skin, along with Sodium PCA, a strong hydrating agent responsible for binding moisture to the cells.


Step 4: Finish with a Restorative Retinol Serum

Apply a restorative Retinol serum to promote the production of collagen and elastin, which give your skin its firmness and elasticity. It is an ideal serum product for helping fight sagging skin. Our retinol emulsion A Serum is brimming with Hyaluronic acid & a Ceramide complex that restores the glow ageing skin often lacks. It’s best to introduce this serum gradually, so your skin builds tolerance to some of the common impacts of its powerful effects. We recommend starting with 1 –2 nights a week after your cleanser, advancing to nightly use and even if you do experience a little redness or flaking, you persevere, because on the other side of that, is a healthy, rejuvenated complexion. You may layer your night cream (Anti-Ageing Regenerating Formula) over the top of this serum. Anti Ageing Skincare | Anti Aging Regenerative Formula with hand

For anyone who has ever endured a breakout before a big event or presentation, the mind-complexion connection seems obvious. But increasingly, research reveals that the link between skin and stress is perhaps stronger than we realise.
When we experience mental or emotional duress *such as a global pandemic*, it unleashes a toxic cocktail of stress hormones which can cause dryness, breakouts and sensitivity to the skin barrier.
Our Limited Edition 'Sleep Tight Kit' was curated with this in mind - to help combat laxity-induced cortisol— otherwise known as “the collagen killer”.
Whether it's indulging in a luxurious skincare regime, waking up early to meditate, etc. Take the time to incorporate a little self-care into your daily routine.

A common misconception with oily skin is that moisturiser isn't necessary and will make the skin even greasier. However, by not applying enough moisturiser, you're causing the skin to overcompensate and produce more oil.

If you have combination or oily skin - these are your SKINCARE STAPLES:

Revitalising Foaming Cleanser:
✨Clears up blemishes without over-drying, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.

Ultimate Serum:
✨Exfoliates dead skin cells and increases cell renewal, while a high concentration of Niacinamide brightens and increases moisture levels in the epidermis

Daily Moisturiser Combination:
✨Panthenol (Vit B5) Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin and
is thus improves skin moisturisation
✨Witch Hazel Extract acts as an astringent, drying out acne blemishes
✨Enantia Chlorantha Bark extracts reduce sebum (oil) secretion

Follow our top tips for incorporating retinal into your regime ✨

Start on a low strength of Retinol - A Serum Retinol Restorative is perfect for those new to vitamin A. Always introduce the ingredient to your skin slowly so as not to overwhelm it. Once your skin has accepted the molecule without experiencing any sensitivity you can then move up to a higher strength to maximise your results, such as our A Serum 1% Retinol.

It's important to phase in any retinoid gradually over the course of 4 weeks to allow the skin to get used to the molecule. For A Serum 1% Retinol we recommend using twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks and then every night after that.

Always apply a ceramide-rich moisturiser after your vitamin A as it will help to offset any dryness that may occur as your skin adjusts to your chosen retinoid. Anti-Ageing Regeneration Formula is perfect for use with vitamin A serums, as it has been designed to enhance retinoid results.

Don't forget to apply sunscreen the morning after. This is important as the vitamin A molecules are typically photosensitive, meaning they will break down and be ineffective if exposed to sunlight and increase your skin’s sensitivity to harmful UV rays.
