From the mythical fountain of youth to cosmetics that promise to reverse aging miraculously, the world has been seeking a way to escape the inevitable impact of age. Treatments that can postpone the aging process in cells are meant to keep age-related illnesses away but don’t promise to make wrinkles vanish.

What they do reiterate is the fact that there are no alternatives to a self-care routine. Personal well-being is being aided by the evolution of cosmetics, which can lead to great results. These include simple skincare products that can prevent the impact of age if used regularly.

Some anti-aging products may seem like any skin cream or serum available but are based on scientific research to tone up puffy eyes. These formulae are carefully crafted to tackle the impact of the sun, pollution, and changing environmental conditions in everyday life.

Here are a few handpicked anti-aging solutions that provide an effective alternative to fabled miracle cures.

1. K-SECRET, ADVANCED REGENERATING GEL EYE PATCHES

Puffiness and wrinkles under the eyes are the early signs of aging when the collagen breaks down. K-secret’s eye patches, available at Beauty Nation, deploy vitamin A and retinol to strengthen metabolism, improve skin elasticity, and reduce wrinkling. Bigger patches cover a larger area than conventional eye patches, while smaller patches can be used for the neck and the specific areas for an ageless smile free from wrinkles.

Available at Beauty Nation for $34

 

2. ELEMIS PRO-COLLAGEN MARINE CREAM

Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays causes severe skin damage, including premature aging due to burnt tissues that lose elasticity. Launched in 2003 and available at Beauty Nation, the Pro-collagen Marine Cream protects against the sun via micronized sunscreen particles that absorb its rays like a sponge to prevent wrinkles. Every particle is wrapped in a protective sphere which makes them repel each other, allowing the cream to spread easily across the face.

Available at Beauty Nation for $135

 

3. SCIENTIA NOTOX YOUTH BOOST EYE SERUM

Although treatments such as Botox effectively reduce the impact of age, the use of needles makes sure that they pinch a lot more than the consumer’s pocket. Notox serum, available at Beauty Nation, is an attractive, painless alternative for ensuring firm and ageless skin under the eyes. The Tens-up complex and amino acid solution have an instant smoothening effect, similar to other tweaks but without any pain.

4. TARA RADIANCE VITAMIN C COMPLEX

Pollution is a major factor that can accelerate aging by entering the skin through nano-particles and triggering chemical reactions. Its impacts include an uneven pigmentation on the skin, making it look paler with time. Tara’s Radiance complex, available at Beauty Nation, uses a combination of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic and Ferulic acids to brighten skin tone. It fights off environmental stressors and free radicals to prevent hyperpigmentation. It’s created with an ascorbic acid bound to gold particles for increased absorption to ensure that the solution penetrates the skin within minutes. It stimulates the synthesis of collagen, which makes the skin look radiant.

5. SKINBETTER SCIENCE ALPHARET OVERNIGHT CREAM

Before using cosmetics, side effects or possible irritation remain a major concern for consumers with sensitive skin. But Skinbetter shields users from any unwanted impact by keeping its products, such as the Alpharet Overnight Cream, free from fragrance, paraben, and dyes. The overnight cream uses retinoid derived from Vitamin A as the base and combines it with hydroxy acid for skin free from lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture.

Available at Skinbetter for $130

 

6. AESOP PARSLEY SEED ANTI-OXIDANT INTENSE SERUM

Pollutants in the air are invisible threats to the skin which latch on to nano-particles and sneak through the pores. Although it’s hard to escape urban pollution in everyday life, Aesop’s Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum creates a breathable film to cover the skin and prevent pollutants from reaching it. The solution also hydrates the skin, keeping it fresh and youthful against the effects of aging.

Available at Aesop for $90

 

7. ORVEDA FIRM BREW BOTANICAL CREAM

The impact of age makes skin dull and uneven, so it needs to be contoured to look firm. The Orveda Firm Brew Botanical Cream tones the skin and provides a dewy fresh look. It suits dry and combination skin and is vegan and halal-friendly. The cream also comes with a Zamak pro tool, ensuring clean application.

Available at Orveda for $438
