Q: What is the best anti-ageing ingredient to look for when you are buying anti-ageing products at the chemist?

A: Dermatologist Associate Professor Greg Goodman says that, “If you are looking for a targeted product that is doctor-prescribed then a script based on retinoic acid (Vitamin A) is best. However, without a script look for products with hard-working natural ingredients like antioxidant vitamins including Vitamins A, B, C, E and B3.”

Armed with this expert information, we trawled the chemist shelves to find three take-home products that specifically targeted anti-ageing needs. The first is Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle Deep Wrinkle Serum, $29.99, as it fits the bill perfectly.

This potent, fast-absorbing formula is infused with retinol SA and a multi-vitamin complex, which targets fine lines and wrinkles and helps improves skin tone.

So, it works like this, retinol SA is slowly released onto the surface of the skin and when used daily, it helps to minimise the look of deep wrinkles. The texture is lightweight and easy to apply, making it a great product to apply under other treatment products or even as a skin-smoothing primer under makeup. Remember when using products with a retinol base you must always apply a sunscreen with a high SPF of at least 30 to combat the effects sun damage. Add to cart.

For a night cream, try RoC Retin-Ox+ Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Care Night Cream, $54. We love creams that work while you sleep and this one does just that by helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven skin tone and texture. RoC RETIN-OX+, contains retinol and CollagenOx complex to help fight the war on anti-ageing by having a tightening effect on the skin’s surface and helping fill out wrinkles. Apply nightly over face and neck after cleansing, but avoid the delicate eye contour area.

And remember not to neglect those long-suffering hands. They are exposed to so much environmental damage with the onslaught of UV rays from every angle and everyday wear and tear. To keep them moisturised and nourished try Sally Hansen Age Correct Hand Retinol Cream, $24.95. Keep one bedside, desk-side and in the glove box for top ups throughout the day. Your hands will thank you.
