According to the article, antioxidants are crucial and the best topical antioxidants available are idebenone, amino-peptides, coffeeberry, green tea extract, coenzyme Q10, vitamin C and vitamin E.  In addition, retinoids which build collagen, repair sun damage and reverse fine lines and wrinkles would be a necessity and soap-free cleansers are really better for aging skin.
