Though aging is beautiful, it causes a lot of changes to our bodies and appearance. We should all be able to embrace our beauty at every stage in life, but, of course, there is nothing wrong with using a few beauty potions to boost your confidence.
If you're in the market for new anti-aging products, then you're in luck. Harper's Bazaar just released its 2019 Anti-Aging Awards highlighting the best of the best.
“The goal of anti-aging isn’t trying to appear younger, but rather feeling your most beautiful at any age,” Harper's Bazaar said of the awards. “Of course, great products can help with that.”
Editor Jessica Matlin stopped by the show Thursday to chat about the magazine's picks in key categories like cleansers and moisturizers.
Here are 15 of our top picks from the Harper's Bazaar 2019 Anti-Aging Awards.
Best Cleanser for Dry Skin
“For those with drier skin types, lean in to creamier or even oil-based cleansers,” Matlin advised. Made with nutrient-rich olive oil, vitamin E and rosemary leaf, this product hydrates the skin as it cleanses.
Best Cleanser for Oily Skin
Matlin said this is a favorite for people with oily or acne-prone skin. And this formula is great, because it doesn’t strip the skin; it leaves your face feeling matte and smooth.
Best Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
“Cetaphil is the one product that nearly every dermatologist has in their cabinet,” Matlin shared. “They're all obsessed with it! There isn't one person it doesn't work for.”
Best Cleanser for All Skin Types
This cleanser is meant to easily and gently lift oil, dirt and makeup without making your face feel greasy. Plus, it's affordable.
Best Facial Cleansing Wipes
These face wipes are citrus scented and remove makeup quickly and gently. They contain vitamin C and jojoba oil, which are meant to leave skin bright and glowing.
Best Retinol Moisturizer
“Two things that all derms can agree on? SPF and retinol,” Matlin said. “They're the best anti-aging ingredients money can buy, and they're both in this product.” This moisturizer is innovative, because typically, daytime retinol use is off-limits, because the ingredient can cause sun sensitivity — but RoC added in antioxidants and sunscreen to protect your skin.
Best All-Around Moisturizer
This moisturizer contains peptides meant to plump skin. The lightweight formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, according to the brand.
Best Firming Mask
This brush-on mask had a moment on social media, thanks to Drew Barrymore. It has a dramatic process. “It tightens on your face, but it gives you a little lift,” Matlin said. “It's a good way to treat yourself ahead of a big event!”
Best Sheet Mask
This hydrogel sheet mask gives skin radiance, hydration, smoothness and plumpness in as few as 10 minutes, according to the manufacturer. It is helpful for uneven skin textures, fine lines, wrinkles and dryness.
Best Brightening Serum
This serum is part of the popular Revitalift Derm Intensives line and went through a dermatologist panel validation. The serum absorbs to even out skin tones, reduce wrinkles and give your skin a matte look, according to the manufacturer.
Best Neck Cream
The StriVectin TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream has been on our radar as one of the best-selling neck creams for a few years now. It is made with ceramides, peptides and a lifting complex.
Best Night Eye Cream
“This area shows the signs of aging earlier than others, because the skin around your eye is thinner,” Matlin explained. This product is designed to combat all of the fine lines, wrinkles and stress that can appear around the eyes. It hydrates with hyaluronic acid and also fights blue-light damage.
Best Wrinkle-Fighting Eye Cream
This eye cream aims to boost collagen production, so the skin around your eye becomes fuller and more hydrated.
Best Brow Serum
Meant to be the solution for thinning eyebrows, this serum helps the hair you still have grow in stronger and appear fuller and thicker, according to the brand.
Best Anti-Aging Tool
This is a battery-free roller for every facial and body curve. It aims to help energize, lift and firm, improve elasticity, increase cellular turnover, plump fine lines and wrinkles, boost hydration levels, and optimize product penetration. It was developed by New York dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank.
