The Clarins Guide to the Best Anti-Aging Skin Care

How do anti-aging creams work?

As your skin matures, you may wonder how to slow down the effects of time. With a good diet, hydration and exercise you may ask - how do anti-aging creams work? And how is aging skin treated? Clarins believe in harnessing the power of plants and infusing our anti-aging face care with the goodness of botanical extracts to work in total harmony with your skin. Each of our anti-aging face creams are formulated to a skin type - normal, dry and combination - to help address further skin issues as you age, such as deeper lines, dark circles and age spots. Our full range addresses different areas of your face and neck as well as specific areas you may wish to smooth and tone, yet all our anti-aging creams work with a similar goal in mind - to lift, restore, tighten, smooth and soften skin; helping you look your very best. We firmly believe it’s all about you, after all.

What is an anti wrinkle cream?

You may already have a day cream or moisturiser - so what is an anti wrinkle cream? And how do you use an anti wrinkle cream if you don’t already use a regular day cream or moisturiser? An anti wrinkle cream is a moisturiser designed to specifically target lines and wrinkles on your face, neck and decollete. Filled with active ingredients formulated to boost skin’s natural regeneration - which slows as you age - anti wrinkle creams help to restore radiance to dull and lacklustre skin, whilst tightening, toning and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What's the best forehead wrinkle cream?

Forehead wrinkles are often created by  everyday facial expressions -  raised eyebrows, frowns and laughter alike. Whilst this natural process is  part of  aging, you may find you wish to  target this area to  reduce the appearance of  these lines. We  recommend addressing any deeper lines with a  serum -  such as  the Super Restorative Remodelling Serum -  and using our Extra-Firming range to  tighten, tone and smooth out the appearance of  forehead wrinkles. To  find the best forehead wrinkle cream for your skin, discover our full range of  anti-aging face creams for day and night.

What is an anti-aging serum?

Not yet an anti-aging serum convert? What is an anti-aging serum, anyway? A lightweight anti-aging serum with a fluid texture is able to penetrate deeper down into our skin. Serums have a higher concentration of active and power packed ingredients that deal and address specific skin concerns; nourishing and healing from the inside out.

Are serums good for your face?

Each Clarins anti-aging serum has a unique purpose to address different areas of aging - Shaping Facial Lift Serum tones and tightens skin, giving it a visible ‘lift’, Super Restorative Remodelling Serum reshapes and restores contours, bringing bounce back to a dull complexion, whilst our Extra-Firming Tightening Lift Botanical Serum directly targets the loss of firmness in the skin, age spots and uneven tone. Double Serum is our most powerful Complete Age Control Concentrate, ideal for all stages of the aging process to boost 5 vital functions of skin - hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, protection and regeneration.

What oil is best for anti-aging?

Clarins facial oils are designed to reduce wrinkles, balance skin tone and restore skin elasticity. Created by Jacques Courtin-Clarins in 1954, our facial oils share the same plant based hazelnut oil and each is filled with incredible botanical extracts to plump, hydrate and protect skin all year round. Revitalising and toning, each of our facial oils works with your skin to address different issues - dehydrated, dry, oily/combination skin - and bring balance back to your complexion. As skin naturally loses hydration as you age, we recommend our Santal Face Treatment Oil for dry skin, which nourishes, tones and soothes.

What are the signs of aging?

The most common signs of aging are:

  1. Wrinkles
  2. Age spots
  3. Dark circles/puffy eyes
  4. Dullness
  5. Dry skin
  6. Loss of firmness
  7. Uneven tone

What are the main causes of skin aging?

The main causes of skin aging are sun damage, smoking, lack of hydration, stress and lack of sleep. Whilst aging is a natural process, not all the signs of mature skin are welcome. Our range of anti-aging face care is designed to help restore balance to your skin through the natural goodness of plant extracts, which - after months and sometimes years of research in our Laboratories - are core to all Clarins products. Explore our anti-aging cleansers, toners, serums, moisturisers, masks and boosters to rejuvenate your complexion and bring a glow back to your skin.

What ingredient helps prevent wrinkles?

Many ingredients help prevent wrinkles and smooth the appearance of existing lines. Our anti-aging experts at the Clarins Laboratories research the benefits of many anti-aging ingredients; focusing on the natural benefits of plants around the world. From our research, we’ve found incredible results from ingredients such as Banana, Bocoa, Teasel, Centella Asiatica, Turmeric, Harungana, Hops, Sourwood, Maritime Pine, White Tea and Extract of Kangaroo Flower.

We recommend a high SPF to minimise sun damage to skin and we recommend serums and moisturisers designed to lock in moisture; replenishing thirsty skin’s hydration levels whilst protecting it from inflammation, sensitivity and free radicals.
