Collection: Anti-Ageing Skin Care Products
At Dermalogica we do not like to use the term ‘anti-ageing’ – not only is it ageist, but it’s also incredibly misleading! we believe no matter your age, all skin is good skin, and we don’t subscribe to the unrealistic beauty ideal that only youthful skin is attractive and desirable.
Fine lines, wrinkles, texture and elasticity changes are all part of the natural skin ageing process. As we age, our regeneration process slows, and we lose collagen at approximately 1% per year. Environmental factors such as stress, diet, UV exposure and illnesses can also lead to premature skin ageing. This can cause skin to become dry, dull and rough in texture. However, a proactive approach to managing skin ageing triggers can help keep skin smoother, firmer and healthier – plus it’s achievable at any age. That’s why we have created a range of anti-ageing skin care products that work to fight the leading triggers that can lead to skin ageing.
here are the key anti-ageing regimen steps and ingredients that our professional skin experts recommend including in your routine:
wear SPF no matter what
researchers estimate that 80 - 90% of visible skin ageing on the skin comes from UV exposure, so protecting the skin with spf moisturiser is key to preventing visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. Our top pick is dynamic skin recovery spf 50, a dual-action broad spectrum moisturiser that helps combat the appearance of ageing skin, provides long-lasting hydration and critical protection against UV light.
brighten, firm and defend
enhance your skin’s natural defence system by incorporating crucial antioxidants that repair damaged skin cells, like vitamin c. Our ultra-stable, bioavailable vitamin c found in our biolumin-c collection fights off environmental stressors and the appearance of skin ageing before it starts. We love our biolumin-c serum.
repair and nourish
help stimulate collagen production repair premature skin
ageing by adding hydration and restoring skin elasticity. our richest moisturiser, super rich repair acts as a protective barrier against dry environmental conditions and soothes dry, itchy skin.
don’t forget to take care of your neck
neck skin is thin, delicate, and more vulnerable to sun damage, photosensitisation from fragrances, and the wrinkle-deepening motion of looking down at your devices. unlike skin on the face, neck skin has less collagen. It’s also “stretchier” than skin on your cheeks and loses strength and flexibility with age – kind of like a rubber band. all these factors increase the appearance of neck sagging, lines, creases, uneven skin tone and texture. neck fit contour serum provides a skin workout that tones and lifts the neck. this lightweight, firming neck serum and massage roller in one can be used by all to treat and combat premature skin ageing.

what are anti-ageing skin products?
Anti-ageing products are designed to help slow down or reverse the signs of aging on the skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. These products typically contain active ingredients that work to stimulate collagen production, increase skin hydration, and protect against environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution.
Some common ingredients found in anti-aging skincare products include retinol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. Regular use of these products can help to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a more youthful, radiant complexion. Whether you're looking to prevent signs of aging or target specific ageing skin concerns, incorporating anti-aging products into your skincare routine can help you achieve healthier, more vibrant-looking skin.
what products are best for anti-ageing?
We recommend adding an exfoliant as this is key to helping increase cell turnover and skin regeneration. As we age, cell turnover declines, leaving skin dull and rough. Increasing exfoliation will help combat the slowing down of this natural process. Add a gentle exfoliator like our iconic daily microfoliant or skin resurfacing cleanser into your daily routine and a more powerful weekly treatment like rapid reveal peel or multivitamin thermafoliant. These products will help keep your skin radiant, smooth and healthy-looking.
how can I stop my face ageing?
Ageing is a natural process that happens to everyone, but there are steps you can take to help slow down the visible signs of aging on your face if this is a concern for you.
First and foremost, it is important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays by wearing sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days. You can also invest in a good skincare routine that includes products specifically formulated to target aging concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Look for products that contain ingredients like retinol, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid, which can help to stimulate collagen production, brighten and firm the skin, and improve hydration levels.
In addition, a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep can also help to support overall skin health and slow down the aging process. By taking these steps and making skincare a priority, you can help keep your skin looking youthful and radiant for years to come.
should I use an eye treatment?
At approximately 0.3-0.05mm thick, the skin around our eyes is among the thinnest on our body. It also has far fewer oil glands, so it lacks the naturally protective film that helps skin stay moisturised. Our eyes are always on the go – we make over 100,000 eye movements per day and our eyes continue to move even when we are asleep. It’s no wonder then that eye area is one of the first areas of the face to show signs of skin ageing, in the form of fine lines, sagging and dryness.
We have a range of anti-ageing eye treatments to help target every concern. We recommend trying awaken peptide eye gel to tackle puffiness and smooth the delicate eye area. For more powerful firming results, try multivitamin power firm which is formulated with vitamins c and e to help tackle skin texture and the appearance of fine lines.
when should I start using anti-ageing products?
Our skin starts to age as soon as we are born, but we don't typically think of it as ageing until it starts to show dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. What causes these visible signs of skin ageing is complex and varies according to your genetics and your exposome (lifestyle and environment). You can start to incorporate anti-ageing products that target signs of skin ageing as early as in your 20’s, such as an SPF or exfoliant. In our 30’s is generally when our collagen and elastin production begin to slow, making it an ideal time to add advanced anti-ageing treatments featuring vitamin C, retinol and peptides that will address signs of skin ageing and damage.
does using skin care products that target the signs of premature skin ageing work?
Recent studies show that up to 50% of visible signs of skin ageing come from your exposome – a combination of lifestyle and environmental factors. Incorporating preventative products in your routine will help to protect your skin and prevent these triggers and lifestyle factors from causing premature skin ageing.

Ingredients like Pea Extract, Arginine and Lysine Polypeptides support skin firmness as found in our most-loved Skinperfect primer spf30.
