ARMING YOURSELF WITH THE RIGHT SELECTION OF SKINCARE CAN HELP TURN BACK THE CLOCK
Wind back the years with skincare that targets your “youth-zones”.
Sunscreen is the most important weapon to protect skin from harmful UV rays and visible signs of ageing. But if your crow’s-feet and spotty hands are beyond prevention, products that target specific “youth-zones” (think the eyes, hands, lips and neck) can help with staving off the signs of ageing.
Estée Lauder is pioneering research into one key youth-zone. “We wanted to gain a deeper understanding of how the eye area ages and why it ages faster than the rest of the face,” says Dr Nadine Pernodet, vice president of Skin Biology & Bioactives Research & Development at The Estée Lauder Companies. Researchers found “micro-movements” caused by repetitive blinking and facial expressions decrease collagen and increase irritation, which accelerates skin ageing.
The research has resulted in the new Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix, which reduces wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Ready to target your youth-zone? Start any new anti-ageing product weekly, and build to nightly use to avoid a skin reaction.
