Getting up there in years comes with its drawbacks and benefits, and the onset of facial lines and volume loss that comes tends to top the list of drawbacks. You can count facial aging right up there with the onslaught of back pain and the occasional grey hair turning into a full head of silver. To soften those “where did they come from” facial lines and give skin a more youthful glow, these anti-agers target the main offenders: wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture.

1 / 8

Cetaphil Deep Hydration 48 Hour Activation Serum ($18) boosts hydration with hyaluronic acid, and softens skin with sunflower seed oil, and vitamins E and B5.

2 / 8

Glycolipids in Dr. Loretta Intense Replenishing Serum ($70) traps moisture on the skin surface to help hydrate skin while the antioxidant lipochroman combats free radicals and protects from harmful UV light, leaving skin looking plump, smooth and rejuvenated.

3 / 8

Apply a layer of Augustinus Bader The Face Oil ($230) morning and night. Utilizing Professor Bader’s TFC8 technology, the oil promotes cellular renewal, which helps smooth skin texture and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

4 / 8

The name says it all with ZO Skin Health’s Firming Serum ($235). Lightweight and tolerable for even sensitive skin types, this anti-ager includes the brand’s ZCORE complex which consists of a synthetic tetrapeptide and sweet yellow clover to help strengthen skin laxity. Plant stem cells provide powerful antioxidant protection while sodium DNA helps stimulate cell repair and reduce inflammation.

5 / 8

Harnessing the brand’s signature ingredient, La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Liquid Lift ($690) blends two types of caviar, Premiere and Absolute, into a milky emulsion to deliver the perfect dose of serum that promises firmer skin and enhanced elasticity.

6 / 8

Bioeffect Limited Edition EGF Serum ($495) is said to have twice the original EGF formula’s anti-aging benefits due to it’s inclusion of a rare black barley that is grown at the brand’s state-of-the-art greenhouse in Iceland. The EGF stands for Epidermal Growth Factor, which in this serum is totally plant derived and signals skin cells to prompt collagen and elastin production. The unique black obsidian bottle design was created by Icelandic artist Shoplifter.

7 / 8

Pair Pause Well Aging’s Fascia Stimulating Tool ($115) with an anti-aging moisturizer and stroke along the face, neck and chest to stimulate fibroblasts, the collagen-producing cells that help keep skin firm.

8 / 8

High-tech celeb-favorite Dennis Gross DRX SpectraLite FaceWare Pro ($435) works to reduce fine lines with just three minutes a day of collagen-boosting red light therapy.
