Our stressful, fast-paced lifestyles mean we have to worry about fine lines and wrinkles a lot earlier than our moms did. Luckily, we have a lot more tools in our arsenal than they did, too. Enter Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid: the arch-nemeses of ageing and –not coincidentally – a girl’s best friends. Skincare’s super-ingredients work to hydrate and plump your skin like no other, restoring the youthfulness of years past.
Here are our top Collagen and Hyaluronic-Acid-infused skin savers:
Delicate but heavy-duty, Innisfree’s Hyaluronic Acid Mask is the perfect mid-week refresh for your skin. Soaked with a concentrated solution of Hyaluronic Acid, this K-beauty wonder instantly relieves dryness, leaving you with nourished, good-as-new skin. Keep it on for 10-20 minutes and then pat in all that solid, sweet-smelling moisture.
Looking for a serum that does it all? Look no further than this serum from St Botanica with Vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic Acid that brings together the superpowers of each nutrient to target a variety of skin concerns. Vitamins C and E promote repair and sun protection while Hyaluronic Acid works to reduce inflammation and restore moisture for glowy, wrinkle- and blemish-free skin.
You can always count on It’s Skin to create gorgeous, skin-loving formulas, and their Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream is no exception. A moisture-sealing humectant, it offers long-lasting hydration and stimulates your skin’s natural collagen level. While Centella extract soothes the skin, Acerola refines your complexion, leaving you with that natural, lit-from-within radiance you’ve always wanted.
No one likes chapped, flaky lips and there’s no reason you need to suffer them, either. Mond’Sub’s Gold Collagen Lip Mask gives you targeted, heavy-duty hydration, working to fade fine lines, brighten, nourish and replenish. Enriched with the power of Collagen, just a single use will show you visible results in the form of soft and supple lips.
Is your skin missing that natural, youthful radiance? O3+ Collagen Facial Serum is just what the doctor ordered. A potent, dermat-tested formula, it stimulates cell renewal and elasticity, removes fine lines and wrinkles, and restores your skin to its youngest avatar. While targeting ageing, it’s also great for moisturization and brightening.
If your long days and longer nights have started to leave a mark on your peepers, you might want to invest in Thalgo’s Collagen Eye Roll-On. Given the signs of ageing show first around our eyes, they need a little extra attention – and they need it earlier on, too. Thalgo’s formula channels marine collagen and slow-release caffeine to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, and wake you up like a cuppa coffee could never do.
