5 Wonder Products That Help You Beat The War on Ageing

Youth in a bottle has been a long-held promise from various cosmetics companies, yet the marriage between beauty and tech has seriously been taking their relationship to the next level.

Super peptides, plants and plankton are proven to penetrate your cells for some serious lifting and revitalising effects.

While not quite botox in a bottle, the following 5 products deliver a serious punch in the fight against ageing – and having some serious science behind it to refresh your skin and reveal a youthful, firm and radiant complexion.

Whether you suffer dullness, sagging or fine lines, there’s a product to help you start reversing the clock the minute you apply it.

Ultraceuticals Ultra C23+ Firming Concentrate


This product is a win when it comes to brightening for pigmentation, firming for sagging skin, and antioxidant for well, everything. It’s an absolute must-have for any dull or saggy skin, thanks to its high percentage of Vitamin C.

Ultraceuticals Ultra C23+ Firming Concentrate is an anti-aging weapon that combines 23 percent pure vitamin C with peptides Microelastin and MicroCollagen for smoother, firmer looking skin.

What are those, you ask?

Microelastin® has anti-ageing and firming properties, while MicroCollagen helps to maintain normal and healthy levels of collagen. Apply to the face and neck, alternating between morning and evening for four weeks, then build up to daily application.

I recommend combining this with Ultraceuticals Ultra C Firming Eye Cream to improve the appearance of skin firmness. This Pro Collagen formula contains Ultraceuticals pure Vitamin C, peptide Microelastin® and moisturising ingredients to refresh, lift and brighten the eye area.

Clarins Double Serum


87% of women stated that Double Serum boosts the effectiveness of skincare applied afterwards.
Powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules, Double Serum’s unique dual chamber system combines two serums into one swift application to reactivate the skin’s vital functions. In turn, these work to boost radiance, collagen production, and hydration while also fighting stress, ageing effects and pollution.

The product harnesses two phases: water-soluble (hydric) and oil-soluble (lipidic), hence it’s crucial for the products to be marketed in different packages to ensure maximum usage concentration.

Cang Zhu extract, a plant originating from Chinese pharmacopoeia, is one of the hero ingredients and increases cellular communication by 43%, meaning that your skin cells communicate more effectively.

Other key ingredients include kiwi to optimise the delivery of nutrition to the skin, organic rosehip oil to improve cellular respiration and boosts healing process, and pistachio & organic green tea – powerful antioxidants to protect skin against free radicals.

Tests report firmer skin, reduced wrinkles, a more even skin tone and less visible pores in four weeks of using the serum that was 30 years in the making – and it sounds good enough to eat!

La Mer The Lifting Contour Serum and The Lifting Intensifier


The Lifting Contour Serum and The Lifting Intensifier are designed to work in synergy to lift the skin and restore clarity and brightness. The scent alone is so refreshing that it relaxed my face into a more youthful configuration!

Key to this treatment is Azurite, a crystal formed in seabeds that furnishes essential oligo-elements to help promote a strong a healthy looking skin.

The Lifting Intensifier is specially designed to accelerate the visible repair of deep creases and boost the lifting benefits of The Lifting Contour Serum. In turn, The Lifting Intensifier trains skin over time to sustain a smooth, resilient, more lifted appearance.

After preparing skin with The Lifting Contour Serum, use the wand and dot onto areas where needed most, such as around the eyes, between the brows, and the outside corners of the nose and mouth. Bask in La Mer’s trademark Miracle Broth™, which is present in every product to infuse skin with ‘healing energies’ and promote natural cell renewal and repair.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting / Firming Serum

Touted as the beauty brand’s most effective wrinkle-fighting serum ever, Perfectionist boasts breakthrough CPR-75 Technology to double skin’s natural collagen building power.
According to company research, In vitro testing of CPR-75 Technology showed that a new level of skin perfection and clarity emerge, with 96% of the sample showing a significant reduction in the look of lines and wrinkles after one week. In just four weeks, trials showed the skin looked re-densified, with a youthful firmness and suppleness.

Indeed, upon application this serum reduced the appearance of lines and wrinkles with exceptional speed, smoothed the texture and evened skin tone. Other reviews even stated a visible redefining and firming facial contours over longer use.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting / Firming Serum is great as a primer under foundation too – what’s not to love?

Venofye Apitoxin Collagen Night Recovery

Applying this serum feels like you’re lavishing your skin with a diamond-infused gel – although it’s actually bee venom. Experts believe that bee venom fools your skin into believing that it has been stung, which sends it in an overdrive of collagen production and skin tightening.

Each Venofye product contains their signature ingredient along with a variety of beneficial skin care ingredients that go a long way in offering all kinds of delights to your skin

An intensive renewing treatment, the Collagen Night Recovery further infuses your skin with Collagen, Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate and a powerful array of botanical extracts.

It’s not cheap, but if you can put a price on awakening to invigorated, firmer-looking skin and a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, then you must treat yourself to the superhero of serums.

There’s a reason why despite the $600 pricetag, Apitoxin Collagen Night Recovery is constantly out of stock. Obviously the celebrities that frequent this brand know something we don’t…
