The all-natural ways to combat aging. Who says you can’t go green and still look gorgeous? Certainly not us!
While most skin-care products only have one or two active ingredients, Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum has a full 35—and all of them are organic. To encourage collagen production, the serum relies on orange blossom peptides and date palm extract, while tiny spheres of pomegranate extract trap moisture on the skin. The result? After testing it myself, I looked like I had had a mini face lift five minutes after applying. Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Serum, $185
It’s been drilled into everyone’s head that exfoliating is the key to younger looking skin. But so many peels aren’t exactly eco, and scrubs can be too harsh. Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Treatment provides the right amount of light exfoliation. Ciao aging cells! The cleanser is a combination cream/oil formula that dissolves oil, makeup, and dirt to leave skin hydrated and clean. The double-sided cloth that comes with the treatment is tough on dirt, but gentle on your skin. Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Treatment, $48
If you get that dry, tight feeling after washing your face, your cleanser is too harsh. And if there’s still makeup left on, well it’s just not doing its job. Jurlique Purifying Foaming Cleanser seeks to rebalance skin with witch hazel and calendula, and moisturizes with rose extract. Added in are other natural ingredients like green tea, grape seed, and turmeric, which aim to protect your skin from environmental damage, age spots, and wrinkles. So go ahead, lather up.

Who doesn’t love a product that multitasks? Think of the time—and space!—you save. Which is why the 100 percent vegan Suki Transformative Cleansing Clay is a favorite with organic fans. As a cleanser, it reduces oil and redness; as a mask, it calms skin and minimizes pores. As a spot treatment, it can tackle those periodic hormonal breakouts fast. Although clay is often thought of as an ingredient for younger skin, by pairing the kaolin with tea tree oil, rose, and calendula, Suki has created a clay-based product also suitable for more mature skin.

When it comes to reducing the signs of aging, you want immediate gratification that lasts. Is such a thing possible? Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Anti-Aging Serum is made with more than a dozen oils—including safflower, argan, and acai—but is still ultralight and absorbs quickly into the skin with no oily residue. The boost of hydration plumps lines on contact, while the high dose of antioxidants increases radiance and helps improve uneven, rough texture the more you use it. We just might be getting closer to that miracle we all want. Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Anti-Aging Serum, $60
You’ll go natural for a cleanser, but surely a gal needs the big guns for those frown lines? Oh ye of little faith. Intelligent Nutrients Plant Stem Cell Science Renewal Complex-Target Treatment is made with edelweiss, coneflower, and pennywort stem cells—an anti-aging powerhouse that apparently competes with dermatologist treatments. And the best part? It’s vegan, and cruelty- and gluten-free, proving just how good green can be at fighting Father Time. Intelligent Nutrients Plant Stem Cell Science Renewal Complex-Target Treatment, $55
