8 Natural Anti-Aging Skincare Products that Mean BUSINESS! | Best natural anti-aging skincare products

Looking for safe but effective natural anti-aging skincare products — to slow the signs of aging without any unhealthy chemicals?

Well my friend, you CAN have it all! These natural anti-aging products contain powerful active ingredients that have been well-studied for their effectiveness. No crossing your fingers and hoping!


Aging. It happens to the best of us…

Unless you’re Benjamin Button… OK or Jennifer Lopez. (Dayum, J Lo!)

Now aging isn’t something to be condemned — I’ve always loved the quote “Don’t regret growing older; it’s a privilege denied to many” and believe each day I’m able to spend on this gorgeous earth is a blessing.

But I’d like to “age gracefully” and certainly not before my time! Are you with me or are you with me!?

And so I’ve researched and researched, searching for the best natural anti-aging skin products.

Because as much as I’d like to slow the signs of aging, I of course refuse to sacrifice health in the name of beauty!

I also don’t want to waste my time (or money) on products with big promises and little results.

I want science. I want precision. I want these darn wrinkles to not get any deeper and for my dark spots to please go away.


Luckily, there are a few prized active anti-aging ingredients that are as natural as they are effective.

In fact, these well-studied actives are used in most conventional anti-aging skincare products too.

Even dermatologists swear by them because they WORK.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is required for collagen synthesis, so it’s no surprise that studies like (this one) found that topical application of vitamin C significantly increased collagen production.

A potent antioxidant, vitamin C also helps protect skin from free radicals, which damage the structural proteins in the skin. According to The World Health Organization, up to 90% of the visible signs of skin aging is said to be thanks to photo-aging or sun exposure, so vitamin C’s ability to defend from UV exposure in and of itself is a biggie.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

According to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, niacinamide increases protein synthesis — collagen and elastin are the primary proteins in the skin and keep it firm and youthful — and decreases wrinkles and fine lines. It also increases skin hydration by increasing ceramide synthesis, and hydrated skin appears plumper and more youthful.

Niacinamide is especially helpful for reducing hyperpigmentation or dark spots. In fact, one study found that application of niacinamide at a 4% concentration decreased hyperpigmentation almost as well as hydroquinone but with far fewer side effects (hydroquinone is banned in Japan, the EU, and Australia). That’s awesome news!

Retinoids (Vitamin A)

Every dermo’s favorite!

Retinoids — a form of vitamin A — are the most used and well-studied of all anti-aging ingredients. They minimize the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin’s thickness and elasticity, slow the breakdown of collagen (which helps keep skin firm), and decrease hyperpigmentation.

Since retinoids do increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun and increase cellular turnover — which is a good thing except of course when it comes to cancerous cells — there is some concern regarding the use of retinoids, and it’s absolutely critical to protect yourself from the sun when using them. If you choose to forgo retinoids for these reasons, you still have many other effective options to choose from!


8 All-Natural Anti-Aging Products That Mean BUSINESS!

MyChelle Perfect C Serum

I’ve tried quite a few vitamin C serums and this is by far my favorite! It contains 17% L-ascorbic acid, which is smack dab between the 15-20% studies have shown to be most effective without causing irritation.

By the way, I think it’s really odd that most other natural vitamin C serums don’t indicate the percentage of vitamin C — and I don’t take them as seriously.

P.S. MyChelle Dermaceuticals in general means business when it comes to skin health which is why you’ll see quote a few of their products on this list! This brand has quickly become a favorite of mine since its products are safe, natural, and rooted in the best anti-aging research.

MyChelle Ultra Hyaluronic Beauty Mist

This is the newest addition to my skincare routine and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been on the hunt for a great product with niacinamide for ages. 

In addition to niacinamide, this mist contains hyalauronic acid for deep hydration — and hydrated, moisturized skin appears more plump and youthful.

MyChelle Remarkable Retinal Serum

This serum with exclusive and patented IconicA (Retinal)—the most potent form of Vitamin A—plus Ceramide 3 and Orange Plant Stem Cells to promote healthy skin renewal, help diminish skin discoloration (dark spots and blemishes), and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

I’m allllll about exfoliation… and vitamin C! So it’s no wonder this has become a favorite of mine.

Exfoliation increases cell turnover and collagen production, which is why it’s an essential part of any anti-aging routine. This miracle product uses fruit acids and lactic acid to remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin.

Another great exfoliation option, these simple pads are meant to be used each day (and so provide a much more gentle exfoliation than the MyChelle peel).

In addition to exfoliation fruit acids, it contains niacinamide for further anti-aging benefits.

100% Pure Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Ultra Riché PM Treatment

This rich cream combines the powers of vitamin C ad vitamin A (retinol) while providing great moisture. It’s a great product to layer on top of a serum.

100% Pure Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Potent PM Serum

This hard-hitting serum uses but vitamin C and niacinamide to protect skin from free-radicals, fight fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce hyperpigmentation.


Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream

Last but not least… an effective natural anti-aging skincare product that also doubles as a tinted moisturizer!

I’ve been using this CC cream for quite a few years now and love it. It provides SPF protection, all the anti-aging (and clinically-validated) goodness of Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular line, and great color coverage in a wide range of shades. What more could we ask for!?


Wondering how to use these products and where to get started?

First of all, know that you of course don’t need each and every one of them! I’d start by adding just one or two products into your current routine, particularly since vitamin C and retinoids both can cause some sensitivity and/or irritation when first introducing them.

I like to apply vitamin C serum in the AM since it helps protect skin from the sun, and retinoids should only be used in the evening, and it’s critical to protect your skin from the sun during the day.

Right now I’m using the vitamin C serum in the morning under the CC cream, the hyaluronic beauty mist in the evenings under my homemade face oil blend, and the C peel just once a week. Since I do spend a lot of time in the sun, I don’t want to venture into retinoids right now. I’ve also recently been testing the 100% Pure Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidants Potent PM Serum, which I use after the beauty mist and before my oil.

  1. This is so helpful!!! I’m definitely going to try some of these. Would you recommend using the retinol serum and vitamin C serum both daily?

  2. So glad to hear it!

    If you want to try both, I’d start slow – probably with just one and then add the other one in later. I should include that both vitamin C and retinoids can cause irritation at first. If you use both, best to use the retinol serum at night and vitamin C in morning since the vitamin C protects from the effects of the sun whereas vitamin A makes you more sensitive.

  3. Would you share how to best use these products? As in, how do you layer them, do you use them all at once, only certain ones in AM or PM?
    Thanks!

  4. This is a great question! (And thank you for asking again here, Heather 😉 ) SO first of all, you don’t need them all! For example, right now I’m using the vitamin C serum in the AM under the CC cream, the hyaluronic beauty mist in the evenings under my face oil, and the C peel just once a week week. Since I do spend a lot of time in the sun, I don’t want to venture into retinoids right now.

    When it comes to skincare generally, the order is: wash -> tone -> serum -> waster-based moisturizer -> face oil *if* you were using each step.

    I like to apply vitamin C serum in the AM since it helps protect skin from the sun retinoids should *only* be used in the evening (and coupled with SPF in the AM) since they increase skin sensitivity to the sun.

    Hope this is helpful!

  5. I can’t wait to try the speed peel! I had a great peel mask I used years ago and then could never find again. I’m excited to try this one!
