Product Must haves to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
When it comes to at home skincare, consistency is key. While the steps of your morning and evening skincare should stay the same no matter what your age (cleanser, toner, moisturiser, serum, eye cream…), our dermal therapists advise updating some of your products to ensure they are rich in active and hydrating ingredients to compliment more mature aged skin.
Here is a list of 3 must own skincare products for anyone looking to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in order to promote more plump and hydrated skin.
A good quality Eye Cream: Silk Eye Contour Cream by Dr. Spiller
The skin surrounding your eyes is much more fragile and thin compared to the rest of your face. It is also prone to dryness and is the first to show signs of age and fatigue. This is due to the overactivity of the skin surrounding the eye area. Fluids also collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. You therefore need to nourish this delicate skin with quality product to hydrate and soothe the area.
The Dr. Spiller Silk Contour Eye Cream is an anti-ageing, lifting and firing eye cream designed to re-contour and tone the appearance of the eye area. When it comes to eye cream ingredients you want to look for a product with active ingredients to stimulate cell turnover. The Dr. Spiller Silk eye cream contains silk peptides which are botanically rich in amino acids. The silk peptides have wound healing, moisturizing, re-building and anti-inflammatory properties.
A collagen rich moisturiser: Dr Spiller Collagen Cream
One of Dr Spiller’s most popular products is the Collagen Cream. The Collagen Cream is a concentrated emulsion rich in collagen hydrolysates, powerful anti-oxidants and moisture-binding properties to provide the skin with long- lasting anti-ageing protection.
The Collagen cream is a hydrating cream that is perfect for winter. The weather at the moment is quite aggressive on the skin with the cooler temperatures and the dry heat indoors. This cream contains a hyaluronic acid which locks in moisture into the skin, preventing trans epidermal water loss.
Warning though, this cream is quite rich so is recommended for clients with the following skin concerns:
Mature Skin: The bee’s wax present works as an anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and antibacterial. This magical ingredient is also softening and regulates skin consistency.
Anti-aging: Hydrolysed collagen is processed to achieve a lower molecular weight than regular collagen. The structure forming protein works to improve the elasticity in the skin.
Dry/Dehydrated: Vitamin E a skin identical potent antioxidant, naturally secreted by the sebaceous gland for environmental moisture protection. The Avocado extract activates the cell metabolism of the connective tissue. The lanolin present works as an emulsifier with high water-absorption capabilities, the lanolin is also emollient with moisturising properties.
An active peptide Serum: HydroPeptide Power Serum
The HydroPeptide, Power Serum was designed specifically to treat deep wrinkles and sagging. Patients who have used this product on their skin saw immediate results that made their skin look younger and firmer.

These peptides work to increase skin volume to fill the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, help to lift and firm sagginess while reducing the appearance of expression lines.
You can use this product daily, morning and night. A small pea-sized amount is enough to cover your face and neck. Following two weeks of application you will see visibly softened deep expression lines and more youthful skin.
