Anti-Ageing Skincare Routine

Looking for the secrets to plumper and youthful looking skin? This helpful guide shares Charlotte’s magic anti-ageing skincare routine and tips.

Fine lines, wrinkles and dullness are all signs of ageing skin. But what if they don’t have to be? Charlotte’s anti-ageing skincare routine tips contain the MAGIC secrets to turning back the clock and achieving PLUMP and YOUTHFUL-LOOKING skin in your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond!

What causes ageing skin?

As we age and our skin matures, our production of sebum slows down. Sebum is our skin’s natural oil, which is responsible for keeping our skin looking SOFT, SMOOTH and SUPPLE.

On top of this, as we age, the skin’s the ability to renew itself slows down over time causing dullness and dark spots. Diet, lifestyle habits, genetics, stress, gravity, and exposure to the sun and pollution are other factors that all contribute to ageing skin.

The most common signs of ageing skin are fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity, larger pores, dullness and hyperpigmentation.

7 MAGIC anti-ageing ingredients and where to find them

Darlings, good news! Many of Charlotte’s skincare products are infused with MAGIC ingredients that help to restore and maintain your skin’s natural barrier for a RADIANT and YOUTHFUL-LOOKING complexion. Here are the best anti-ageing ingredients to look out for…

  1. Replexium, a skin-bioavailable complex of two patented peptides, in glass test tubes for testing purpose.


    REPLEXIUM™ is a groundbreaking, anti-ageing peptide duo that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for more YOUTHFUL-LOOKING skin. This MAGIC, wrinkle-targeting compound can be found in many of Charlotte’s supercharged skincare and beauty icons including Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, Magic Cream Light and Airbrush Flawless Foundation.

  2. Banner with glowy, silver-coloured hyaluronic acid molecules.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    Hyaluronic acid is a sugar substance that’s naturally produced by our skin. It works by keeping up your skin’s moisture levels for better elasticity and a GLOWY complexion. As we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid we produce naturally decreases, resulting in drier skin. One of the best way to compensate for this is by using hyaluronic acid-infused skincare. This MAGIC ingredient can be found in many of Charlotte’s skincare products including Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum and Magic Serum Crystal Elixir.

  3. Glowing, pearly-white Vitamin C acid molecule.

    Vitamin C

    Vitamin C is a nourishing antioxidant that multitasks! Not only does it promote an even skin tone (one of the things we lose as we age), but it also brightens the look of your complexion for a RADIANT-LOOKING GLOW. Many of Charlotte’s skincare products contain the power of vitamin C including Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Magic Serum Crystal Elixir and Multi Miracle Glow.

  4. Glowing, pearly-white retinol molecule.


    Retinol is a high-performance skincare secret found in Charlotte’s Magic Night Cream and Magic Eye Rescue. A form of vitamin A, it can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other skin ageing concerns for a more YOUTHFUL-LOOKING complexion. Use these retinol-infused skincare products every night for the best results over time!

  5. Close-up of niacinamide molecules under a microscope.


    Niacinamide is a SUPERCHARGED version of vitamin B3 that helps to improve the overall look of skin tone, minimise the look of pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This GROUND-BREAKING skincare ingredient can be found in Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir face serum and Glow Toner!

  6. Green stems with delicate, white flowers that resemble jasmine.

    BioNymph Peptide

    BioNymph Peptide is another MAGICAL ingredient that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for SMOOTH and PLUMPER-LOOKING skin. One of the hero ingredients in Charlotte’s ‘magic 8’ matrix of supercharged ingredients, it can be found in many of Charlotte’s MAGIC skincare products including Charlotte's Magic Cream, Charlotte's Magic Night Cream, Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, Goddess Skin Clay Mask and Brightening Youth Glow primer.

    Darlings, too much exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can contribute to accelerated skin ageing so that’s why it’s super important to stay sun-safe! Avoid direct sunlight during peak hours and ALWAYS wear SPF. Many of Charlotte’s ICONIC skincare and beauty products contain SPF to help slow down the signs of ageing, contribute to overall healthy skin and even out the look of your complexion. A super-easy way of getting your SPF fix is by applying Charlotte’s super-hydrating Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer with SPF 50 shield right before your makeup for SMOOTHER-LOOKING skin and daily defence.
