Glowing Skin How-To: Gorgeous Skin Guaranteed

Antioxidants: "Having anti-oxidants on your skin provides an extra level of protection against free radicals," says Bank. So be sure to layer an antioxidant serum, such as RoC Multi Correxion Skin Renewing Serum ($25; at drug-stores), with vitamins C and E, underneath your sunscreen.

Night cream: Slather on a rich cream, such as Chanel Ultra Correction Lift Ultra Firming Night Cream ($165; chanel.com), before bed and you'll look refreshed when you wake up.

Eye cream: If you're 30 or older, you'll need to add a formula specifically for this area, such as Estée Lauder Time Zone Anti-Line/Wrinkle Eye Creme ($44; esteelauder.com) or Origins Youthtopia Firming Eye Cream With Rhodiola ($40; origins.com), to your routine in the morning and the evening.

Minimize wrinkles

Surprisingly, some of the latest cures for fine lines come in bottle—not syringe—form and can be used in the morning and at night in place of your moisturizer or cream. "Many women can't afford wrinkle-erasing injections—or are squeamish about just the thought of needles," says Loretta Ciraldo, M.D., a dermatologist in Miami. "That's why some companies are offering what I call surgical substitutes."

These are topical solutions that mimic the effects of injectables, albeit not as dramatically. Dr. Brandt Crease Release ($150; drbrandtskincare.com) contains a gamma-aminobutyric acid complex that has the power to relax your facial muscles so they can't contract and form creases; Olay Regenerist Filling + Sealing Wrinkle Treatment ($19; at drugstores) has silicone to fill in, and camouflage, lines on contact; and Dr. Loretta Youth Fill Deep Wrinkle Filler ($45; drloretta.com) has potent hydrators like hyaluronic acid and urea that draw moisture deep into skin, helping to plump it up.
