In a saturated market of proclaimed miracle workers, it's tough to sort through your options to find products that are truly effective. To help you out, we did the work and found nine versatile skincare must-haves that do more than just treat wrinkles.
Sisleÿa L'Intégral Anti-Age Cream, Sisley-Paris ($525). Barneys New York, 1811 Walnut St., 215-563-5333
Finally, there's an antidote for one of the most overlooked causes of wrinkles from behaviorial stress (including lifestyle and environment): Sisleÿa L'Intégral Anti-Age Cream. This do-it-all cream—to use day and night—will reinvigorate energy production in your cells to promote skin repair, help lengthen the duration of cells, and adjust your skin's biorhythms to match those found in younger skin. If that isn't enough science to prove that this cream will treat and soften your lines, we don't know what will.
Ferulic + Retinol Fortifying Neck Emulsion, Dr. Dennis Gross ($75). Sephora, 1714 Chestnut St., 215-563-6112
Stop neglecting your neck area—instead, pamper it with Dr. Dennis Gross's popular neck emulsion. Combining retinol, lactic acid, and silk amino acids for a gentle yet effective formula, this cream will help keep the crepiness and lines at bay to reveal firmer, younger looking skin. Plus, it's incredibly fast-absorbing and hydrating for when you're on-the-go.
Stem Cell Magic Gel, Rodial ($75). Nordstrom, The Plaza at King of Prussia, 610-265-6111
True to its packaging, Rodial's 10-in-one cream gel is truly magical. It serves dual purposes as a moisturizer, which can be used day and night, and as a sleeping mask, when applied thickly in the evening. Not only will you find that your skin is hydrated—despite its lightweight feel—but you'll also see that your prominent wrinkles will soften overtime. Bonus: Perfect for city dwellers, the cream will protect your skin from pollutants like cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and heavy metals.
Amla Purifying Cleanser, Tracie Martyn ($65). Bloomingdale's, King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, 610-337-6300
There's a reason why celebrities swear by Tracie Martyn's potent cleanser. Not only does its foam-based purifier work to dig into your pores to wash it of debris and toxins, but this formula also exfoliates your skin to prevent dirt build-up, to literally smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Anti Aging RNA Radical New Age Essence, SK-II ($195). Neiman Marcus, King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, 610-962-6200
For those who want to treat enlarged pores, try SK-II's RNA essence that not only firms and shrinks your pesky pores, but also improves the look of your skin's overall texture and glow without drying it out.
The need to continuously treat the eye area is key, especially when you're constantly squinting or stressed. Prevent those wrinkles from building up with this gentle cooling eye cream, which uses Saponaria to speed up cell rejuvenation and increase elasticity—other positive results also include de-puffing and brightening dark circles.
Midnight Recovery Oil, Kiehl's ($46). The Shops at Liberty Place, 215-636-9936
There's a reason why Kiehl's recovery oil has a loyal following of its own: hydrating and rejuvenating all at once, you'll see results after just one use. Let its revitalizing ingredients—including evening primrose, lavender oil, squalane—work overnight to help you wake up with a brightened, glowing, and smoother looking complexion.
Meso Infusion Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Micro Mask, 111Skin ($160). Bloomindale's, King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, 610-337-6300
For double the moisture and glow, look to 111Skin's micro masks. Infused with vitamin C to give you a brighter appearance, and hyaluronic acid that will treat your wrinkles—particularly laughter and frown lines—these sheet masks will plump up and hydrate your complexion in no time.
Whether you sleep on your side or on your back, fall into bed without worrying about how your sleeping position will affect your wrinkles. The satin covering, which isn't as absorbant as cotton cases, will allow your skin to retain its natural oils and moisture, while the curvatures of the pillow will let you sleep comfortably without adding more depth or lines on your face.
