Emotional maturity, financial security, and a general nonchalance towards the less important things in life - guys, aging really does not get the credit it deserves. While we are lucky to live in a time where there is a growing sense of positivity towards aging, we tend to forget that starlets like Zeenat Aman, Helen Mirren or even our own mothers are literally the epitome of graceful aging. Hell, it makes me WANT to embrace my future wrinkles (I would also love to stay in my 20s, but we cannot have it all, I guess).

Now, we’re not asking to bring on the crow’s feet right here, right now. All we want is a gradual process where we slink into our 30s as easily as a cat in an oddly shaped tumbler from those cute kitty videos. So, we think it’s only fair to invest in the best for your skin. Let every post-thirty CTM routine be as grand as the Taj Mahal with these amazing luxe products. Scroll below for an intro to the most divine anti-aging products for your vanity.

1. belif Peat Miracle Revital Cream

This product is one of our first introductions to Peat, an organic ingredient lifted from swamps. It’s a rich source of herbal energy and boasts of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains some amazing minerals and organic acids, which will normalize skin turnover and promote the skin elasticity of a 21-year-old. And honestly, we would take the goodness of Peat in our skincare over swimming in an actual swamp any day.

2. L'Occitane Divine Youth Oil

Everything down to its bottle is absolutely divine. It is baked right into the name. Every drop is equivalent to liquid gold (do not try to sell it though) and boasts of the goodness of so many oils that we cannot even count. Think Rosehip, Primrose, Sea Buckthorn, Apricot and other essentials that combine to melt into your skin. The result is smoother, plumper looking skin with visibly fewer wrinkles and smile lines.

3. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery

Oh, the things we’ve heard about the Advanced Night Repair Range. It comes with 10X Concentrated Repair Technology, which helps repair the impact of sleep deprivation, UV rays, pollution, and blue light. It contains a good splash of Hyaluronic Acid, which means you can say ‘Hello!’ to lush eyes in no time. And by no time, I mean three weeks, because this product claims to reduce dark circles in that short, short period of time. We are sold, Estee Lauder. Take all our money.

4. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Skincare works best when it is applied at night, and anti-aging skincare is a true testament to that. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery range is perfect for your evening CTM routine and contains an ingredient that has been climbing the ranks of effective anti-aging skin care - Squalene. It adds that rich skin plumping effect to this facial oil, and effectively slows down its aging process. I mean, who does not want to glow as they snooze?

5. Clarins Extra-Firming Neck Anti-Wrinkle Rejuvenating Cream

One of the first places that aging can hit you is your neck. What you mistaken a persistent double chin for is just slowly sagging skin (unless, you have packed on a few healthy kgs, of course). Once you step into the realm of anti-aging skin care, you will realize that your neck needs this non-oily, lightweight neck firming cream by Clarins. It contains powerful green seaweed extracts and sunflower auxins, combined with their patented Extra-Firming Complex to soften, smoothen, and firm the neck and décolleté.

6. Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Face Scrub

We need those wrinkles gone, but what we also need is something to brighten up the face. Many women over the age of thirty start experiencing dullness and pigmentation on their face and tend to shell out big bucks for facials that lend a temporary glow. Nah, you need some Kumkumadi in your life, sis. Kama Ayurveda’s Brightening Face Scrub contains 12 precious and rare ingredients such as Kashmiri Saffron and Sweet Almond Oil to help smooth fine lines, illuminate skin color and promote new cell growth. What else do you even need?
