The Best Anti-aging Serums For Women

October 11, 2020 | By Kelly

Wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin, dry skin -- the four horsemen of aging. While keeping skin clean and clear is a lifelong job, fighting the signs of aging can become a full time job as we get older. Anti-aging skincare products also feel like they will break the bank. However, starting an anti-aging skincare regime early and staying disciplined can stave off trips to the cosmetic surgeon or medi-spa.

Anti-aging ingredients to look for


Retinol and retinoids are derived from vitamin A and have been scientifically shown to fight wrinkles and age spots bby stimulating collagen production.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a gentle ingredient that super moisturizes the skin. This can reduce inflammation that is more common as we age.

Animal Based Ingredients

While PETA may not approve, many ingredients derived from animals have been show to have incredible anti-aging effects. Examples include snail mucin, emu oil, snake venom, bee venom, and horse oil.


Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E don't turn back the hands of time, as much as they slow them down. By fighting free radicals, they can prevent new damage to your skin.

The Products

L'Oreal Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid

This serum offered by L'Oreal contains hyaluronic acid. It bills itself as a very hydrating serum which locks moisture into the skin and it does just that! If you have dry skin or are suffering in a cold, dry climate, L'Oreal Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid serum will definitely help.

One thing to note, though, hyaluronic acid is a bit of a short term solution. It will lock moisture in and puff up your wrinkles for a bit. However, its magic fades quickly, so you need to keep up with usage.
