With new innovations leading the way, we’ve rounded up the age-defying staples to streamline your routine.
As Dr Michele Squire, a PhD-qualified scientist and founder of personal skincare coaching business Qr8 pointed out in the latest issue of JONES, ageing well is a long game. As she puts it, “What you do in your thirties will pay off in your fifties (and beyond), but people are too often looking for short-term solutions and fixes.” For Skinimalist’s like Friend Of David Jones and The Design Files founder and editor, Lucy Feagins, ageing well begins with fewer products that are more focused in their intentions. Think investment skincare and hard-working formula’s that bring visible results while prepping your skin for the future.

When it comes to building out an effective anti-ageing routine, understanding what makes a game-changing formula is key. From high-performance retinol’s to the regenerating power of rose sap, we unpack everything you need to know about anti-ageing’s most sought-after staples.
It’s no secret that retinol is a major player in the anti-ageing sphere. Also known as vitamin A, its power lies in its ability to promote skin cell turnover, making way for new cell growth underneath. Designed to deliver higher levels of retinol, Ultraceuticals Ultra A Skin Perfecting Serum does just that. Recently reformulated with a new and improved Ultra-RETI™ microparticle technology, the super serum works to deliver pure retinol to the skin. With this advanced retinol delivery technology, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly diminished and skin is left feeling youthfully plump.
By replacing excess with essence, U Beauty has single-handedly redefined the way we view multi-purpose products. Dubbed by fans as “a holy-grail addition to your skincare routine”, their Resurfacing Compound is known to deliver visible results in as little as three days. A clean, high-performance formula, it’s engineered to resurface the skin’s appearance without irritation, multitasking to brighten, renew, tighten, equalize and defend in a single, nourishing step.
20 years in the making, Dior’s Prestige Micro-Huile De-Rose Advanced Serum is the 1st repair serum to concentrate the power of the Rose de Granville from the stem to the flower. Potent and luxurious, the 92% natural-origin formula combines the nourishing richness of an oil with the deep penetration of a serum. Designed to take your skin on a journey of total transformation, the 22 revitalising micro-nutrients found in the petals act in synergy with the regenerating sap from the stem, working to fight against inflammation and the signs of ageing.
Nourishing and plumping, SK-II’s new SKINPOWER Eye Cream is the extra love our eye area has been waiting for. Uniquely designed for the delicate skin around the eyes, the formula contains a revolutionary and SK-II exclusive ingredient complex called InfinitPower Technology. A cocktail of power ingredients, this technology works to plump the skin from within while their hero component, Pitera™ deeply moisturises in the same breath.
The definition of investment skincare, Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge Radiance Anti-Dark Spot Serum is the cult product that delivers luminosity in a bottle. Formulated with a string of powerful ingredients, the serum works to restore radiance while smoothing skin and creating a resistant barrier against the appearance of dark spots. Focused on a three in one approach, consider it a time saver that turns back the clock.
The clean beauty name on every it-girls top shelf, Emma Lewisham found her cult following with Skin Reset. Innovative, award-winning and efficacious, it’s the ultimate treatment for repairing lacklustre skin, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Formulated through years of scientific research, its proprietary formula delivers concentrations up to 4 times higher than other products, minimising the visible signs of skin ageing by accelerating cell turnover and boosting collagen regeneration. Now available in a refillable model, Emma Lewisham has become the world’s first 100% Circular Designed beauty brand. From November 2021, David Jones will house Emma Lewisham “drop off points” in select stores so that empty vessels can be returned back to the brand for reuse or recycling.
