Today is Leap Day and I, for one, am celebrating by desperately trying to turn back the hands of time by committing to an anti-aging skincare routine. I may not be made of money but I am an Amazon Prime member and luckily thousands of customers have already done the trial-and-error elbow work on some of the most affordable, most effective products out there which I now present to you.

Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Skin

This anti-aging serum refuses to beat around the bush. Cosmedica’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum isn’t just a clever name, it contains nothing more than pure, organic hyaluronic acid and that’s it. A wonderful choice for sensitive skin, this little bottle of liquid miracles will fill-in and diminish fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing and plumping the skin for a high-quality youthful glow. If you’re new to the anti-aging game (like me) or looking to take on a new skincare routine altogether, this Tree of Life Anti-Aging Serum 3-Pack  is another great place to start.

LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer

Prescription-strength retinoid tretinoin (AKA Retin-A, a powerful anti-aging vitamin A derivative) has been known to seriously dry out facial skin but this affordable OTC option from LilyAna Naturals has been formulated specifically for daily use with maximum effectiveness. Soothing, skin-loving organic ingredients like vitamin E, green tea, shea butter and jojoboa oil give this moisturizer a light, lovely natural smell without any added fragrance or chemicals. Team it up with their eye cream moisturizer and prepare yourself for an onslaught of "you look so young!" compliments.

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

Over 2,500 satisfied Amazon customers serve as a pretty good indicator that this anti-aging Retinol Night Cream is worth a shot. After just 12 weeks, wrinkles of all kinds visibly diminished leaving you to wake up to healthy younger-looking skin day after day. The secret is in the unique patented and highly effective retinol formula that has been specifically designed to work through the night when your skin is the most receptive.

The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA

Exfoliation is crucial to any skincare regime, and attempting to turn back the hands of time is no exception. Mandelic acid is a surprisingly gentle exfoliant that accelerates skin cell turnover to speed up the removal of dead skin cells that often lead to dull complexions and fine lines while brightening your complexion. If you’re a little leery about going straight to a liquid 10% acid exfoliator start with this incredibly nonirritating 5% Skin Prep Water instead.

Neutrogena Age Shield Face Oil-Free Sunscreen

I’m pretty sure we are all haunted by a time that we went without sunscreen. Whether you went for an afternoon, a vacation or a full decade going without sunscreen is the main culprit behind wrinkles and dark spots later on in life. This moisturizing sunscreen from Neutrogena is made with Helioplex that shields skin up to six layers deep to help combat the signs of aging no matter when you start to use it.

At less than $15 it instantly plumps skin to even out skin tone and reduces both wrinkles and imperfections while delivering firming hydration. Not one for all-over liquid foundation?

Advanced Clinicals Anti-Aging Collagen Cream & Body Oil Set

As you grow older (and wiser!) your skin starts to naturally thin out creating fine lines and wrinkles everywhere in the process. Most products on the market are focused on facial skin but this particular set is a favorite body, face and all-over moisturizer that reinvigorates your skin thanks to a formula packed with green tea, aloe vera, chamomile and pure collagen. The cream comes in a generous 16oz container so it will last you for months making this anti-aging duo one of the most economical options available.
