SCIENCE HAS PLAYED a huge role in beauty, lead­ing us for­ward in the quest for younger-look­ing skin, but it seems na­ture has been grow­ing it all along – in saf­fron. This ex­ceed­ingly rare and lux­u­ri­ous in­gre­di­ent is the star of YSL Beauté’s Or Rouge skin­care line, which has been newly re­for­mu­lated and ex­panded to pro­vide even more ad­vanced age-de­fy­ing ben­e­fits. The use of saf­fron can be traced back over hun­dreds of years. Or Rouge, “red gold” in French, is the lux­ury beauty house’s most pre­mium skin­care line and is named af­ter this time-hon­oured spice. Har­ness­ing only the best, YSL uses saf­fron sourced from the peaks of the At­las Moun­tains in Morocco, a place of in­spi­ra­tion for founder Yves Saint Lau­rent. The crim­son pis­tils of the elu­sive cro­cus flower are where the saf­fron is found, but it only flour­ishes once a year and must be plucked by hand. What’s more, with 150 flow­ers needed to ob­tain a sin­gle gram of saf­fron, its value is higher than its weight in gold. The new col­lec­tion in­tro­duces four en­hanced Or Rouge prod­ucts that al­ready utilise the saf­fron’s botan­i­cal power, oth­er­wise known as a su­per sugar called crocin. This an­tiox­i­dant-rich com­pound soothes, firms and re­duces red­ness while stim­u­lat­ing cel­lu­lar turnover. YSL’s new­est find­ings have al­lowed it to ex­tract even more from the saf­fron; not only is the re­for­mu­lated skin­care prod­uct more po­tent but it has also also been ren­dered more ef­fec­tive with the dis­cov­ery of cro­cetin, a mol­e­cule ex­tracted from the saf­fron cro­cus plant be­fore the flower blooms, which pro­tects the an­tiox­i­dant and thus helps pre­vent skin age­ing so that youth­ful skin lasts longer. To add skin-re­ju­ve­nat­ing saf­fron to your beauty regime:

PRE­PARE WITH OR ROUGE LO­TION

Use this light­weight mois­turiser to plump and hy­drate the skin. It will also bet­ter pre­pare it for prod­ucts to fol­low, re­veal­ing skin that is softer and strength­ened.

TREAT WITH OR ROUGE CREAM / OR ROUGE CREAM FINE

Both creams are silky and fo­cused on re­form­ing and re­viv­ing skin to make it firmer and more sup­ple. Or Rouge Cream is richer in tex­ture and Or Rouge Cream Fine tar­gets the ap­pear­ance of fine lines.

TAR­GET WITH OR ROUGE EYE CREAM

This fast-ab­sorb­ing for­mula tar­gets the del­i­cate skin around the eyes with an anti-fa­tigue com­plex of rus­cus and caf­feine to re­duce puffi­ness and dark cir­cles while smooth­ing out the con­tours. The Or Rouge range is avail­able now at YSL Beauté bou­tiques and coun­ters.
