Hi Carina, thank you for the questionand my apologies for the delay with my response but I was away attending an overseas congress.
I am a firm believer in using alphahydroxy acids, polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A derivatives for one’s skin. Your ‘anti-ageing’ regime starts with a good SPF (50 or higher that must contain zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide) and it should be non comedogenic.
Pigmentation may be difficult to get rid of using a topical product only but it definitely is a start; there is no evidence that alphahydroxy acids and vitamin C will increase the pigmentation in fact the exact opposite.
The use of a topical product range is completely up to you and if you have been happy with Clinique’s range then continue to use it but to start an anti-ageing regime one would need to consider adding the ingredients I mentioned above.
