GO GLYCOLIC Swap your grainy scrub for a glycolic acid ex­fo­liant, which will gen­tly speed up the skin’s re­newal process. Use a glycolic acid peel once or twice a week be­fore bed to ban­ish fine lines. Dr. Der­mal Tex­ture Cor­rec­tion Pads, R475, are a great, fuss-free op­tion.

EYE it UP An ef­fec­tive eye cream needs to have a crack­ing cock­tail of ingredient­s to help iron out those crow’s feet. El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Ceramide Lift and Firm Eye Cream SPF 15, R575, is packed with re­plen­ish­ing lipids to im­prove skin’s tex­ture, re­duce puffi­ness and re­tain mois­ture.

REACH FOR THE RETINOL Give skin an anti-age­ing punch with a retinol-rich mois­turiser. As well as gen­tly ex­fo­li­at­ing skin overnight, it tones down dark spots and blotch­i­ness and plumps up deep lines and wrin­kles. L’Oreal Paris Re­vi­talift Bright Re­veal Dual Overnight Mois­turiser, R413,56, is both af­ford­able and ef­fec­tive.
