Hi S, thank you for the question.

There are no studies that demonstrate with absolute proof which supplements combat skin ageing but one will not go wrong looking at the various anti-oxidants on the market: Vitamin C, Co-enzyme Q, and Resveritol to name a few. Your best approach in combating skin ageing is a good SPF (50 or higher) that must contain zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide applied several times daily, sun avoidance (hat, umbrella, etc.) and using a good moisturizer (not expensive) that contains alpha and polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, vitamin A derivatives, and growth factors.
