There’s one piece of beauty advice that’s stuck with me for as long as I can remember. I was chatting with my beautician during a routine facial when I was in my teens when she reverted the conversation to something I’d never even considered. Using anti-ageing products.
“The sooner you start using them, the better,” she said, looking deadpan in my eyes over the steamer. I didn’t give it much thought at the time. In my defence, I was just trying to get a face full of teenage ache under control. Wrinkles were the furthest thing from my mind. But as I made my way through my 20s and I could see some lines beginning to appear, her advice kept popping up in my mind like a Fairy Godmother of skincare.
As a result, I’ve been using anti-ageing products ever since, particularly in the last few years. Day creams, night creams, eye creams, serums, you name it and I’ve probably tried it. And when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. We all know that prevention is the best cure, so why would skincare be any different? The short answer is it’s not.
But when the beauty market is flooded with anti-ageing products, it can be difficult to decide what works and what doesn't. That's why it's best to look past the labels and really focus on what's inside your products that make them work which is the reason I love the L'Oreal Laser X3 range. They're products are full of components that work to help our skin look and feel younger.
Here are my top picks and the scientific reasons behind why they work:
1. L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Anti-Ageing Power Serum
If you've been in your local beauty aisle lately, you'd know that serums are all currently all the rage and for good reason. It's the first thing I apply to my skin after I cleanse and tone both morning and night. All you have to do is apply three pumps and using circular motions, work it into your skin starting from the bottom of your face and move upwards.
