Once you reach a certain age it is time to start using anti-aging moisturizers. That age is purely up to you of course, It should at least be by the time you are in your mid-30's, as that is when the signs of aging have already started to show themselves (unless you have been wearing sunscreen daily since birth). A good anti-aging moisturizer will not only provide moisture for the skin but will provide peptides to help counteract the skin's natural aging process.

One moisturizer I tried recently for anti-aging is The Inkey List Peptide Moisturizer. It is listed as a day and night anti-aging moisturizer but I am a little frustrated here with The Inkey List. They don't specifically discuss using a sunscreen after it for daytime use, which essentially negates the use of the anti-aging moisturizer in the first place. Up to 90% of skin aging is due to sun damage. So I would recommend that if you are going to use this during the day, use a SPF30 over it. This Peptide Moisturizer is a rich fast absorbing, yet hydrating moisturizer for dry skin that helps reduce wrinkles. It promises results in 28 days. Peptides are chains of amino acids that help support naturally support the collagen protein found in our skin. Using them has been shown to delay the signs of aging. This moisturizer contains two peptides: 2% Royal Epigen P5 and a 1% a hydrating solution peptide. Royal Epigen P5 helps to even skin tone and delay the aging process. The hydrating peptide solution helps increase skin hydration levels, supports the natural moisture barrier and provides visibly radiant skin. The natural moisture barrier is one of those things that seems to often get overlooked in our skin but aggravating it ages the skin too. It is plays a very important role in protecting our skin, when it becomes dry or dehydrated skin ages faster, That is why it is important to keep up hydration levels and make sure skin stays plump. The Peptide Moisturizer also contains a high percentage of glycerin to help hydrate the skin. Shea butter provides an occlusive moisturizer that is also very softening for the skin. It is rich in fatty acids and resembles skin's own sebum, therefore it helps restore hydration and to seal it in.  Finally, Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) helps to provide antioxidant protection, smoothing of the skin and intense moisture. 

So, really what you have in this product is a well rounded but basic anti-aging moisturizer. But does it actually work? On the box it actually promises results in 28 days if used twice daily, in the AM and PM. The directions say to apply a pea sized amount on cleansed skin after preferred serums. Again, they fail to mention anything about SPF during the daytime which is criminal in my book, because how can you get results if you are actually undoing the work the peptides are supposed to do? Doesn't matter is you are going outside or not, the UV rays are there on cloudy days too. And if sunlight is getting through then you are getting UV rays. I would be remiss if I didn't mention this. There is a little SPF dot in the regimen section on the box, but most people don't want to wear two creams. That ends up feeling heavy on the skin. Also, The inkey List doesn't even offer an SPF at all. That is completely bogus for a skincare company especially when they are selling acids that mess with someone's natural moisture barrier. The box says that this product is formulated for all skin types but best for dry skin. Acneic and oily skin types cannot expect to wear this as heavy as it is. If you are producing that much oil then I would expect you would want something hydrating but not as heavy. Perhaps a gel-cream instead. These are just my thoughts on this though.
