4 wondrous lesser-known anti-ageing beauty products

Instead of slathering on another layer of that expensive “night serum” and hoping for a miracle, why not consider this list of nifty anti-ageing beauty products that work wonders on turning back the clock to make your appearance more youthful.

1. Hair thickening and treatment products

We know that the state of our hair can be a big give-away when it comes to ageing. As we age, hair follicles become smaller leading to a loss of volume, while a decrease in lipid oil production results in dullness and dryness. However, there are some very useful products out there that can give your locks their life back. Focus on shampoos that have replenishing and thickening qualities like TRESemme’ Youth Boost collection and DOVE Youthful Vitality.

2. Hand and nail cream

This is an easy one to forget, but the humble hand cream can turn back the clock on hands. Fragrance free, heavier creams and ointments are best – and make sure you moisturise straight after showering, washing the dishes and cleaning the house. Naturally Ageless Skin Smoothing Hand Cream from Burt’s Bees is a great option.

3. Lash and brow boosters

Thin eyebrows and weak eyelashes will take away from the symmetry of your face – which when perfected will really make your face pop for a youthful glow. Just as you groom and maintain the hair on your head, the hair on your face needs some attention as well.  Don’t go rushing out to make an appointment at the salon, though, simply invest in some eyebrow powder and a booting serum. Lash&Brow Booster by High Definition is enriched with active ingredients such as argan oil known to enhance the length and volume of brows and lashes.

4. Plumping lip balms

The older we get, the less collagen we produce, leading to our lips losing the protein that supports their plumpness. There are products, however, that stimulate natural collagen formation through honey, hyaluronic acid and even purified bee venom. If you don’t mind a bit of a tingling sensation, try out Manuka Doctor's ApiRefine Lip Enhance.
