Look, we'd all love to age like George Clooney or Brad Pitt, and by that, we mean with just the right amount of graying hair and character-giving wrinkles. But, unfortunately, life really isn't that easy and simple. So, instead, we have to talk about anti-aging to help us out a bit. Think you're too young for this conversation? Guess again. Ideally, you should start using specially formulated anti-aging products as early as your 20s and 30s.
Anti-aging isn't smoothing everything out, it's taking care of your skin so that it looks great as you enter your 50s. Along with a healthy diet and daily exercise, you should introduce anti-aging products into your daily routine. From revitalizing creams to repairing masks, here are the best anti-aging products for men.
1. Primary Anti-age Moisturizer
As its name suggests, VMV's everything cream does it all. From cellular renewal to regeneration, microdermabrasion to antioxidant anti-aging therapy, the moisturizer treats almost every problem you'll soon face as you grow older and produce less collagen. A few weeks of using this and you'll notice smoother, firmer, and rejuvenated skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.

2. Age Defender Moisturizer
Another moisturizer that does the job is Kiehl's Age Defender. This promises to lift and firm skin while minimizing lines and wrinkles. Unlike several anti-aging products out there, Kiehl's has specially formulated this for men's skin. In it, you'll find linseed extract, soy protein, and caffeine that improves elasticity and firmness.

3. Anti-Aging Line Interception Power Duo
La Prairie's product will cost you, but it's because the brand is an authority in anti-aging. The Line Interception Power Duo is a great place to begin your anti-aging journey. This acts as the one perfect solution for wrinkles by smoothing them... even where they've already appeared.

4. Transphuse Night Serum
Night serums seem redundant if you already have another serum that works. But, Erno Laszlo made this to repair daily skin damage while you sleep. It has compounds that boost collagen production, plant extract to relax facial muscles, and milk protein to fight environmental damage.

5. Chloro Plasma
For instant radiance, there's only Perricone MD's Chloro Plasma anti-aging treatment mask. Formulated with Dr. Perricone's Plasma tech, it delivers deep detoxification and purification benefits while smoothing wrinkles and dramatically minimizing the appearance of pores.

6. Ferulic + Retinol Eye Cream
If you found more wrinkles and lines around your eyes, then you'll need an eye cream that's filled with retinol. This one by Dr. Dennis Gross has just that and ferulic, too. Ferulic acid is an antioxidant that protects the skin and reduces signs of aging. Ultimately, it retextures skin where it needs it most: your delicate, dehydrated eye area. Along with ferulic acid and retinol, it also has anti-aging oils and corrective compounds that tackle crows feet, dark circles, and crepey skin.

Clinique innovates with this exfoliating powder cleanser. What it does is instantly purify and invigorate dull and tired skin. Its water-activated formula contains natural exfoliants to gently buff skin smooth while lifiting away pollution and impurities.

8. Anti-Aging Body Cream
Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream, P5863, Sephora.com
You shouldn't forget the rest of your skin. This fast-absorbing body cream was made to fight tired and dry skin. What makes it stand out is its key active ingredient: purslane, which stimulates the skin's antioxidant system to form a barrier. Not to mention, it's infused with vitamin C-rich Indian almond and elderberry blossom.
