The older you get, the more crucial it is to give your skin that extra loving care. You can thank biology for that! Once you make it past your 20s, your complexion becomes more vulnerable to sun damage and collagen loss, eventually leading to wrinkles, sagging, and (at worst) even skin cancer. Luckily, there is something you can do about it—starting with the right skincare. Below, we round up 5 anti-aging formulas that’ll keep looking younger by the year. Thanks, Dermax!

1. Retinol-C Instant Effect Therapy, P2,500 Out of any skincare ingredient, retinol is probably the most important one when it comes to anti-aging. It’s a derivative of Vitamin A that’s potent enough to visibly reverse the signs of aging. How? By encouraging surface skin cells to turn over at a faster rate. It gives way to newer skin cells and results in a more even-toned, wrinkle-free complexion. Formulated with a combination of anti-aging actives, this nano-encapsulated retinol formula is our go-to for long-term wrinkle correction. Simply dab a small amount over fine lines, crow’s feet, and other problem areas. Make sure to moisturize after!

2. UV Milk Anti-Aging Sunscreen With SPF50+ PA+++, P720 We’re sure you know the golden rule of anti-aging by now: always wear sunscreen. It protects you from UV rays that cause all types of damage—like breaking down your skin’s elasticity! For double the defense, choose a sunblock with built-in anti-aging properties like this one. Besides its reliable SPF 50, it also contains antioxidant-rich vitamins that prevent cell damage, dryness, and discoloration. A must for beach-loving babes!!

3. Peptide Whitening Serum & Anti-Wrinkle Serum Set, P3,750 Don’t let the packaging scare you away! These non-invasive airless injections don’t contain actual needles. What they do have are advanced peptides, which are proteins that act like building blocks for your skin. They maintain firmness, prevent wrinkles, and keep skin feeling smooth and bouncy. Take your pick between the set’s two variants: a whitening serum for a more even skin tone and an anti-aging serum for plumper, wrinkle-free skin. You’ll rarely find anything else like ‘em!

4. NanoWhite Night Essence, P360 Did you know that your skin repairs itself most while you snooze? To maximize your evenings, make sure to incorporate at least one anti-aging formula into your bedtime regimen. This particular solution contains ultra-hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and lecithin. Combined, they work wonders to relieve the dullness, pigmentation, and fine lines usually found in dry, aging skin types. Consider it an overnight sensation!

5. Vitamin C Powder Serum, P999 Vitamin C serums aren’t news, but we bet you’ve never seen anything like this one. The powdered formula slowly transforms into a concentrated serum when massaged into the skin. Neat, no? By providing it in a powder form, it allows the ingredient to remain stable and deliver more efficient, long-term benefits. Among these include diminishing discoloration, correcting sun damage, clarifying texture, and boosting cellular turnover. You won’t even have to worry about spills!
