Anti Ageing Skin Products

I have been living in this excellent body for over 60 years
I love it, as long as it doesn’t get to fat, or to thin or doesn’t break
I just think thank goodness

Youth is a gift from nature but age is a work of art.

I feel that no truer word has ever been spoken.

That is if we are to embrace ageing gracefully.

But as we age, the mechanisms that control our skin’s activity begins to change, causing a breakdown in the dermal structure, leading to greater fragility and reduced healing ability.

Fortunately, there are some scientifically tried and tested ingredients, that will to help control the repair and regeneration of vital skin proteins.

Anti-Ageing Antioxidants

Many anti ageing products contain powerful antioxidants.

Theses potent ingredients are capable of neutralising the destructive effects of free radicals, rendering them harmless and preventing impairment of the skin at a cellular level.

They also help to calm inflammation in the dermis, which can cause collagen depletion.

Antioxidants improve our immune, helping to promote healthy skin.

Studies have shown that not only do topically applied antioxidants have a significant protective effect; they also give the skin a rest from fighting UV rays, allowing the skin to naturally repair itself.

ACE antioxidant complex has been designed, to visibly ward off the damage done, by damaging free radicals.

Vital Vitamins


There is no question that vitamins can help the appearance of the skin.

Vitamin A also referred to as retinol has many positive reactions on the skin, including antioxidant activity.

It is often used in anti ageing products, because it is important for normal cell growth and function, and it also helps to modulate collagen synthesis.

Vitamin A derivatives are referred to as retinoids and include the following topical drugs:

  • Retin A
  • Differen
  • Tazorac
  • The oral acne drug accutane
  • Retinyl aldehyde and retinyl palmitate, ingredients also derived from vitamin A.

A+ Retinol sleep complex is our go to treatment containing vitamin A.


More commonly known as panthenol, this vitamin has long been used as a moisturising ingredient.

Vitamin B is also really important for normal cell functioning and helping to repair damaged skin, follow the link to find out more about this potent anti ageing ingredient.

Bio lipid complex containing vitamin B, is the perfect repairing treatment fro the skin.


This is a powerful antioxidant, that helps to prevent cellular damage from oxidation.

Vitamin C is also important for collagen production and is an effective skin brightener, helping to even out pigment and spots caused by UV damage.


Referred to as tocopherol, it is a fat soluble vitamin that serves as a topical vitamin and preservative, and is particularly useful when combined with vitamin C.

Naturlene treatment balm repairs fragile, damaged skin, and contains restorative, healing vitamin E.


If you want to keep your skin healthy, then you need to focus on keeping your barrier function intact.

Glycolipids, ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol are all great examples of lipids (oils) of your skin, that deplete as we age.

These ingredients help to keep your skin balanced and protected, reducing inflammation and premature ageing.

Fortify Barrier Repair cream contains a complex of fatty acids and repairing lipids, to help return an impaired skin back to health.


Kick start your depleted skin with a topical moisture boost.

A dehydrated skin can look dull and flaky, and to prevent ageing horizontal lines, your skin needs to stay hydrated and healthy, in order for it to function well.

None of this lovely skin science will work its magic if your skin is dehydrated, so ensure you regularly give your skin a topical moisture boost, which will prevent horizontal lines, that can lead to premature ageing.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant, whose benefits reads like a drink for the skin, and combined with urea, it helps to accelerate slowing cell renewal, smooth rough surface textures and improve the appearance off fine lines.

H20 Hyaluronic acid complex is a unique hydrating, collagen stimulating product, that also contains the botanical actives cucumber and aloe vera.


These are one of the most beneficial ingredients, for helping to influence ageing skin to behave like younger skin.

Peptides in anti ageing, are being used for reducing expression lines and puffiness and improving skin elasticity and texture.

The Naked Truth

Don’t let the prospect of ageing get you down.

You need to invest in your skin, in order to maintain that youthful vibrant glow for many years to come.

A combination of all of these ingredients, in a planned program for daily application, will produce substantial improvements, in the appearance of any age related concerns you have.

These may include wrinkling, elastosis, puffiness, sagging and sun damage, to help reduce wrinkle depth.

And whilst you can get lines treated by a plastic surgeon, if you go overboard you could become a distorted version of the person you really are.

That is not what a healthy glowing skin is all about.

Instead, I recommend truly EMBRACING what it means to be YOU, learn to feel good about yourself, rather than hiding behind a canvas of someone else.

Tap into your inner beauty and live life with a sense of purpose, after all it’s the only skin you have.

    Hi. I enjoy your articles and believe your products must be good too! I would like to change my skincare routine as I have never had dry skin/perioral dermititis as I have this fall/winter. I am 45 fair skin & hair. Hormonal blemish and dry skin a couple days monthly. Using tretoinin .1 for a few years, good results. Am: Cetaphil- hylaronic acid-argon oil-cerave then IT cos. CC as foundation. Pm: Cetaphil- tretoinin-argon-cerave and I’ve been using otc fungal cream on my chin near lips for pd. I think I need more than just argon oil and include a cream that will be more moisturizing at night. I can’t do a lot of layers though. If it’s too heavy or any fragrance I can’t leave it on. What do you think? Thanks for advice.

      Hi Christine
      Thank you for your feedback I really appreciate it it’s rewarding when people like yourself glean some knowledge that will help return their skin back to health. Christine it sounds like you have a nice little routine going on and if your skin can withstand tretoinin great, although would switch it out to use at night and H20 in the morning and maybe at some point introduce vitamin c to your regime also to help prevent premature ageing further – just be careful not to over sensitise your skin…

      I would say listen to your skin-it sounds like you do a pretty good job of this. If you are looking for real moisture relief I love Savior, it’s calming healing very good for a lipid dry skin. Fortify is about repairing the barrier and putting back what is depleted and missing with both are great, if you don;t want a cream base then bio lipid is the hero product here..none of my formulas are heavy and none have fragrance of any type. Miracle cleanse might be a good bet also and retinol night oil is gorgeous, modeled on sunday riley but without the price tag-although it sounds like you have this covered with the treitinoin. Don;t forget to use your essential fatty acids to mositurise from within….I hope this helps. samantha

    I need an advice please.
    Firstly I’m 34 and I have been on Tretinoin 0.5 and then 0.1 gel for 6 moths. I have read some great and some horror stories about this Ingredient. At 1st my skin like 95% of people using it, went through purging, scaling, peeling, irritating period.
    However on the 3-4 month I started to notice small pitted acne like scars starting to form on my left cheek. They appear to look like large connected together pores. Something which I never had in that place before. I decided to continue using Tretinoin as I was hoping that what Tretinoin’caused’ that Tretinoin is going to fix/remove. Now I have been on in for 6 moths now and The scars are still there. I don’t know why did I get them? If Tretinoin has uncovered previously unseen scars?
    I love the way the tretinoin evened out my skin tone, faded sun spots, and made my skin look overall more healthy, but I don’t want indented acne scars either.
    But if VIT A is causing extreme exfoliation surely by now the skin should even up…and indents should even up. I read on interned that a lot of people have the same problem…
    Has anyone else had this happen or know of anyone else that this has happened to. I wonder if it is just a part of the process of the tretinon doing its job and the indents will fill in eventually. My dermatologist says that tretinoin will not cause indented acne scars.

    Please, if anyone could give me some advice, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

      Hi Anna

      I have to say in all of my time treating clients on Tretinoin I have never experienced this. I am also using 0.5% personally and have had no adverse reactions, only the initial irritation as my skin builds up a resistance. I am wondering if you previously had something going on in the skins deeper layers that it has uncovered, have you ever suffered from cystic acne?

      I have researched this and it does appear that others have had this experience so my advise is obviously please stop using this product and you may want to consider fractional or ablative laser resurfacing. This is rather an intense procedure that works to a destroy the epidermis your superficial layer of skin and heats up the dermis, boosting collagen and encouraging regrowth, as the skin reforms new tighter and re-texturised skin will form. I hope this helps Samantha

        thanks for your answer to my question and no i have never had a cystic acne before but i am a slow healer.

        I am a month of tretinoin and my skin look much better. But is still thin…with broken capilaries and pitted scars caused by tretinoin.

        I was so happy at first…but now i so regreat using it.

        i don’t know…maybe i have overexfoliated my face all together. I am now using 17.5 snd 20% free Glytone glycolic acid which seems to work on me much better and safer than tretinoin. I badly need to remove the leftover pitts on my face caysed by tretinoin.

          Hi Anna

          i am glad you are seeing some improvement, in fact the next step i would of recommended would be a series of deep peels in a controlled environment preferably with your dermatologist, however you are on the right track with the at home glycolics. Please don;t forget your sun protection it is so important whilst you are resurfacing! Good luck I do hope everything works out for you. All the best Samantha
