The 6 Ingredients That Need To Be In Your Skincare Routine

There are so many "magic" serums, lotions and potions around that promise to make wrinkles disappear overnight. In reality, there are really only a handful of ingredients that are clinically proven to have anti-ageing effects. And there is something for every budget to suit your needs and skin health, formulated with well-researched ingredients.

So what are those ingredients, exactly?


When it comes to skin health and healthy ageing, prevention is key. One of the most effective habits you can adopt early on in life (the sooner, the better) is to start wearing a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher (we prefer SPF 50) every single day.

Sunscreen is the number one studied anti-ageing ingredient. It is not very exciting or glamorous, but without sunscreen, any of the other products you are using will be counteracted by the damage from UV light exposure.

Sunscreen not only protects the DNA in your skin from UV damage, but it gives your skin cells a chance to rest and regenerate, which helps diminish the development of wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Studies have found that up to 80 percent of the visible signs of facial ageing come from sun exposure, so a daily SPF is crucial to keep skin healthy.

Antioxidants (Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid)

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that has been shown to work in synergy with sunscreen to protect the skin from UV and free-radical damage. Collagen occurs naturally in the human body and it's an important substance for maintaining the skin's firm, bouncy appearance-but it decreases as you age. So, daily vitamin C usage is a great way to not only protect your skin from UV-related collagen loss, but also to help stimulate collagen production.

For an even more powerful vitamin C formula, look for vitamin C serums that are formulated with ferulic acid. The presence of ferulic acid not only helps to stabilise vitamin C formulas, but it's also a powerful antioxidant in its own right.

Retinoids are considered to be the holy grail anti-ageing ingredient, with years of studies and evidence to support its claims. Retinoids are a vitamin A-derived molecule that work deeper in the collagen to help with collagen remodeling, as well as on the skin surface to increase skin cell turnover and improve pigmentation and uneven skin tone. The word "retinoid" is an umbrella term that encompasses a number of more specific ingredients, including over the counter retinol and prescription-strength retinoids like tretinoin.

While retinoids are considered to be one of the most effective anti-ageing ingredients we have available, retinoids-especially prescription-strength retinoids-can also be extremely effective acne treatments.

Peptides are building blocks of protein that send signals to help build collagen and hydration. While less-often discussed than ingredients like SPF and retinol, studies have shown peptides to have a role in a healthy ageing routine.

Hyaluronic Acid

For dry skin in particular, hyaluronic acid can deliver an immediate plumping effect as well as improve the skin over time. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the best anti-ageing ingredients, as it holds 1000x its weight in water, meaning that it will help hydrate the skin and is pleasing for dry skin and wrinkles.

Niacinamide is a bit of a show-off when it comes to benefits for our skin. From boosting hydration to fading hyper-pigmentation, there's not much it doesn't claim to help with. Extensive research has shown niacinamide works to protect skin from environmental damage and also helps skin to make more collagen and hyaluronic acid. It improves hydration, reduces signs of ageing, diminishes enlarged pores, and significantly lessens skin discolouration.
