There’s no bad time to start an anti-aging routine. Truly, “anti-aging” doesn’t even exist. It’s more like “keeping your skin in its prime, healthiest condition at whatever age” so that your skin works the way it’s supposed to. At its best, that means your skin retains moisture, easily repairs and heals itself, and maintains a radiant glow.
Note: That also means preventing any unnecessary future damage in the form of wearing sunscreen -- a point we always like to stress. Wink.
So that’s how we approach anti-aging here at Ohlolly. Next comes the budget. Just like anything in life, the more off balance something is, the more work (and money) is often required to get it back on track. However, when it comes to skincare, we’re adamant that spending more doesn’t always equate to better results. Spending more wisely does, which is why we’ve put together three different routines for three different budgets to show how, when you focus on quality over quantity, your skin absolutely reaps the reward.

Hydration is one of the biggest secrets to youthful skin. When the skin loses its ability to retain moisture (even if it doesn’t necessarily feel dry), it begins to sag, look dull and wrinkles become more noticeable. If you’re working with a smaller budget, then pay attention to products that stay the longest on your skin and sink in deeply to boost hydration levels -- items like essences, serums and creams.
The Ohlolly Bounce Back Kit was curated with such an emphasis on hydration. It helps protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss, while also adding hydration at every step so that it looks naturally supple and radiant.
First, double cleanse. (1) Sioris’ Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser is an excellent way to remove makeup, dirt and debris without overly-stripping the skin. It instantly leaves the skin feeling smoother and softer. Next, (2) Kosmetic Immunity’s Enzyme Powder Cleanser, rich in anti-aging mBeta Glucan, will gently exfoliate and clear away dead skin cells so that skin appears brighter and more even. (3) Pyunkang Yul’s Essence Toner is the next step, and anyone who doubts the power of hydration need only apply 2-3 layers of this before marveling at how happy and plump the skin will appear. This is a great toner for hydrating the skin not with water, but with skin-strengthening milk vecht root extract.
Toning will also help the skin better absorb (4) Haruharu WONDER’s Anti-Wrinkle Serum, and this is where the anti-aging potency amps up. Using fermented black rice and hyaluronic acid, this milky serum immediately absorbs to firm and moisturize the skin, while also supporting its ability to produce more collagen in the future. Finally, using a cream like (5) Pyunkang Yul’s Intensive Repair Cream will ensure the skin stays moisturized all day long. Peptides and ceramides reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier, while extra goodies like turmeric root and natural botanical extracts further revitalize dull, tired skin.

Once you’re properly hydrated, the next level in anti-aging is to then use products that repair any current damage. This is when a routine can start costing more, because you’re paying for those regenerative ingredients that really “turn back the clock.”
The Ohlolly Repair & Restore Kit has two heavy hitters in this regeneration department: Urang’s True Rose Repair Essence and Kosmetic Immunity’s Luminous Skin Defense Moisturizer. After double cleansing with (1) Heimish’s nourishing All Clean Balm and (2) its soothing All Clean Green Foam, use (3) Sioris’ Time Is Running Out Mist to firm up the skin and aid its visible suppleness with added macadamia, jojoba and sunflower oils.
Urang’s True Rose Repair Essence (4) is next. This is an effortless, silky dose of organic Bulgarian rose water that’s packed with vitamins A and C. It sinks deeply into the skin to calm any inflammation, restore hydration and protect it from future damage and stress. It’s gentle, but potent. Kosmetic Immunity’s Luminous Skin Defense Moisturizer (5) is the final layer, using a proprietary, pure form of mushroom-derived mBeta Glucan to regenerate skin cells, boost collagen production and lessen fine lines and redness. (For more on why Kosmetic Immunity is a great anti-ager, read this.) It's a cooling, delightfully-hydrating moisturizer that also helps refract light from the face, giving you a natural glow.

If you’re ready to go all in on protecting and revitalizing the skin, then you’ll want to incorporate products that add key ingredients at every step of the way. Ohlolly’s Ultimate Anti-Aging Kit leaves nothing to want in its entire routine.
Sioris’ Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser (1) cleanses the skin without stripping it of essential moisture and oils. This gentle cleanser also infuses the skin with vital nutrients through organic green plum water and macadamia nut oil. Pyunkang Yul’s Low pH Deep Cleansing Foam (2) next works deep within pores to gently extract and clarify the complexion while also using seabed vegetable plankton, which contributes over 66 different kinds of healthy natural minerals. HaruHaru’s WONDER Black Rice Toner (3) then rebalances the skin’s hydration levels and fortifies with antioxidants, protecting the skin from future oxidative damage, and following that with (4) Urang’s Pink Everlasting Ampoule will boost suppleness and collagen production even more. This ampoule plumps the skin with every dose of its regenerative pink everlasting flower water and hydrolyzed quinoa protein. You’ll feel it as soon as you pat it in.
Next, use (5) Pyunkang Yul’s lightweight Facial Oil to add jojoba seed, sunflower, geranium and rosemary oils, which further hydrate the skin and contribute to a natural, subtle radiance. Then, seal everything in with (6) Dr. Ceuracle’s Pure VC Mellight Cream. This luxuriously smooth cream is a powerful dose of 100,000ppm pure Vitamin C powder and 10,000ppm Vitamin C derivatives, both of which help to fade dark spots, lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect the skin from UV damage while keeping it baby soft. (For more on why Vitamin C is a skin superhero, read this.)
