ARM­ING YOUR­SELF WITH THE RIGHT SE­LEC­TION OF SKIN­CARE CAN HELP TURN BACK THE CLOCK

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents -

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.
