A PO­TENT BLEND

When in doubt, look to na­ture. Estée Lauder’s new Nu­tri­tious Mi­cro Al­gae range con­tains a “triple al­gae blend” of cold­pro­cessed, nu­tri­ent-rich al­gae. The Pore Pu­ri­fy­ing Cleans­ing Jelly lath­ers into a light foam, draw­ing out im­pu­ri­ties and re­mov­ing makeup for less con­gested pores and a health­ier com­plex­ion. The Pore Min­i­miz­ing Shake Tonic is a clay-in-tonic con­coc­tion, and a sim­ple shake cre­ates the per­fect con­sis­tency to freshen up skin and lessen the look of pores, while ab­sorb­ing oil to re­duce shine. The Pore Min­i­miz­ing Hy­dra Lo­tion de­liv­ers a burst of mois­ture, while an­tiox­i­dants pro­tect against the en­vi­ron­ment and pol­lu­tion alike.

DAY­TIME DE­FENCE

Hong Kong’s unique cock­tail of stresses and wor­ries de­mands spe­cialised skin­care so­lu­tions. Gior­gio Ar­mani’s new Crema Nera Ex­trema Supreme De­fence Fluid SPF 15 day cream has baicalin and a nat­u­ral Mediter­ranean ca­per ex­tract for anti-in­flam­ma­tory and an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties— so it doesn’t just pro­tect you against UV ra­di­a­tion, but also against Hong Kong’s ubiq­ui­tous pol­lu­tion, which can cause pre­ma­ture skin age­ing, in­flam­ma­tion and de­hy­dra­tion. Clar­ins’ Multi-Ac­tive Day cream is tar­geted at the sleep­less and the stressed. Con­tain­ing ex­tract of teasel, which has re­vi­tal­is­ing and an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties, the cream tar­gets the skin’s fi­brob­last cells to re­duce fine lines and cre­ate youth­ful, ra­di­ant skin. Throw in an anti-pol­lu­tion com­plex and you’ve got the com­plete suite of de­fences against the rigours of Hong Kong life.

Bo­tox in a Bot­tle

La Prairie’s Line In­ter­cep­tion Power Duo com­bines both day and night creams into a sin­gle con­ve­nient pack­age to fight wrin­kles and fine lines, while also hy­drat­ing the skin and pro­tect­ing against UV dam­age. The night cream hy­drates and stim­u­lates, while the SPF 30 day cream con­tains pep­tides that limit the face’s abil­ity to con­tract, cut­ting back on wrin­kles. It might not be as ef­fec­tive as Bo­tox—but it’s a whole lot more con­ve­nient.
