So long as we’re all getting older—an occurrence that happens every single day—anti-aging products will have a purpose. The best formulas help us minimize the look of our dark spots, crow’s feet, and fine lines for smooth, radiant-looking skin. But with so many products to choose from—serum, moisturizer, cleanser, eye cream…you get the idea—from a wide range of brands, finding the perfect product can be quite the task. Lucky for you, we’re sharing our absolute favorite of the bunch from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands that can help target a wide range of skin concerns. Ahead, six anti-aging skin care products that can help you achieve youthful radiance!
EYE CREAM: LANCÔME RÉNERGIE EYE
The delicate skin around our eyes is one of the first places to show visible signs of aging, and thus should always be taken into consideration when planning an anti-aging skin care routine. Lucky for us, there are eye creams out there that help address a wide range of concerns, be it dark circles, crow’s feet, or loss of volume and firmness.
One of our favorites? Lancome’s Renergie Eye cream. Show wrinkles, crepiness, under-eye sagging, and crow’s feet who’s boss with this unique eye cream formulated to help visibly smooth the skin around your eye contour. The ultra-light cream goes on smooth and absorbs quickly for enhanced hydration. Sweep this cream above and below eyes, from the outer to the inner corner, patting in remaining product until it’s absorbed.

EYE CREAM: L’OREAL PARIS REVITALIFT ANTI-WRINKLE + FIRMING EYE CREAM
Looking for a drugstore eye cream instead? The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream is one you can’t pass up. The lightweight, protective cream is formulated with wrinkle-fighting Pro-Retinol and centella asiatica and can help strengthen and repair skin barrier function to help resist visible lines, loss of firmness, and other signs of aging. Immediately after use, skin feels softer, smoother and more supple. With continued use, expect less noticeable wrinkles and improved skin clarity.
SERUM: SKINCEUTICALS BLEMISH + AGE DEFENSE
Many anti-aging serums contain a high concentration of skin-benefitting ingredients, so it’s a smart idea to incorporate one into your routine. Whether you’re dealing with loss of elasticity or adult acne, there’s a serum out there that can help address your concerns. If you have mature skin that’s prone to breakouts, consider SkinCeuticals’ Blemish + Age Defense. This serum can help to reduce the formation of acne blemishes and excess sebum production while helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough surface texture over time with continued use. To use, apply four to five drops onto the face and neck once or twice per day.

DAY CREAM: KIEHL’S SUPER MULTI-CORRECTIVE CREAM
Did you know that using a daily moisturizer is not only a critical step in keeping the skin hydrated and comfortable, but can also help temporarily reduce the appearance of visible signs of aging? It’s true! But that’s not all. Moisturizing daily can also provide the skin with a healthy-looking and radiant glow—and who wouldn’t want that? With so many daytime moisturizers out there to choose from, we made the selection simple with this multi-targeted anti-aging moisturizer by Kiehl’s. Formulated with beach tree extract, jasmonic, and hyaluronic acids, this formula can visibly lift, firm, and retexturize the skin’s appearance. Apply it after your serum of choice, making certain to extend the love to your neck and chest. Follow up with Broad Spectrum SPF.

DAY CREAM: VICHY LIFTACTIV SUPREME FIRMING ANTI-AGING CREAM
Specially formulated to counteract daily aging for more youthful-looking skin, this day cream can help smooth and illuminate your skin, while delivering a firmer action with continued use over the course of one month.
NIGHT CREAM: VICHY LIFTACTIV NIGHT
Just as it is crucial to hydrate the skin during the day, it’s equally important to lather up with a moisturizing cream at night. Overnight while we sleep, our skin undergoes natural self-repair, which is why partaking in a thorough nightly skin care routine can make such a difference. Vichy’s nighttime formula, LiftActiv Night, is formulated with rhamnose—a naturally-derived plant sugar—and a gentle exfoliating agent and can help visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles while boosting skin’s firmness and radiance over time. The thick, creamy texture will melt right onto your skin and leave behind a soft, smooth finish.

CLEANSER: LA ROCHE-POSAY PIGMENTCLAR CLEANSER
All skin—no matter the type or concern—requires proper cleansing daily. Cleansing helps remove impurities from the surface of the skin, including makeup, excess oil, and other debris. Why is that important? Because if these impurities were to linger on the skin for too long, they can begin to clog pores and cause anything from breakouts to a dulled appearance. No thank you! When reaching for a cleanser, keep in mind your skin type and main concerns.
For visible dark spots and uneven tone and texture, reach for this gentle exfoliating cleanser, La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Cleanser. Its formula—with micro-exfoliating LHA and deep cleansing agents—can help remove unwanted dirt and debris from the skin’s surface while sloughing away dead surface skin cells. The result? Skin that looks bright and smooth, in addition to feeling soft, supple, and comfortable. To use, massage the cleanser into damp skin morning and night.

CLEANSER: SKINCEUTICALS LHA CLEANSING GEL
As your skin ages, its natural process of cellular turnover slows down, which can cause a buildup of dead surface cells. When these cells combine with bacteria, excess oil and other impurities on the skin’s surface, they can not only cause rough-feeling skin but breakouts as well. Combat both concerns, and keep them under control, with one products like the SkinCeuticals LHA Cleansing Gel. The result is decongested pores, plus smoother- and brighter-looking skin.

SPF: LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS ULTRA LIGHT SPF 60 SUNSCREEN
If there’s only one anti-aging product you invest in, let it be broad-spectrum sunscreen. Prolonged and unprotected sun exposure is one of the leading factors of premature skin aging, not to mention certain skin cancers. Help protect your skin from harmful UV rays (and the free radicals they can cause) by applying Broad Spectrum SPF 15 or higher daily as directed—even when it’s cloudy! We love the way Anthelios Ultra Light SPF 60 absorbs quickly with a lightweight, matte finish. What’s more? The formula is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, and is suitable for sensitive skin. As with all sunscreens, be sure to reapply at least once every two hours. For the best line of protection, pair your Broad Spectrum sunscreen use with additional sun protection measures such as wearing protective clothing, seeking shade, and avoiding peak sun hours.
