The anti-ageing beauty category is saturated to say the least. You only have to walk into any beauty counter to be met with 101 products claiming to erase, firm, illuminate, and "reverse ageing" on our skin. Don't get us wrong, there is nothing at all wrong with ageing. For one, it's a natural process that each and every one of us are bound to go through at some point in our lives (if we aren't already). Also, in our honest opinion, a few lines and wrinkles are nothing more than evidence of a life well-lived. But, with all of that being said, there's no denying that for some of us, a youthful, bouncy complexion is something to be desired. 

Apart from a healthy lifestyle, a good-quality skincare routine is our meal ticket to a smooth complexion, but with so many so-called miracle products, how do we know what to choose? What ingredients really work, and worse, are we using anything that's doing us more harm than good? To set the record straight, we enlisted the help of skin therapist (and all-round miracle worker) Melanie Grant. Grant looks after the likes of Phoebe Tonkin, Lara Worthington, and Jessica Gomes, and truly knows almost everything there is to know about healthy skin. So whether you're concerned with a few soft lines that are cropping up, deeper wrinkles, or just hell-bent on prevention, below is everything you need to know what it comes to curating the perfect anti-ageing skincare routine.
