Look to the future with your best face forward, thanks to Decorté’s transformative anti-ageing rituals. By Aisha Hassan. uminous and smooth—skin qualities that are abundant during the glory days of youth, but which need the help of science to endure. In the sea of cosmetics that have risen to meet this need, Decorté’s iP.Shot, which targets ageing at the DNA level using research never previously harnessed for skincare, certainly stands out. With this breakthrough, the door to endless possibilities opens, and on the other side, another serum that completes the road to a youthful complexion awaits: Decorté’s AQMW Repletion. Standing for Absolute Quality Miracle Wonder, and with packaging designed by famed Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the AQMW range focuses on fusing regenerative medicine—stem cell research—with alternative medicine, which focuses on holistic healing. n the course of time, our skin loses firmness. As a 4-D serum, AQMW Repletion addresses three spatial dimensions (height, width, and depth) to combat this symptom of ageing, but also looks toward a fourth dimension—time—to act as a preventative measure against ageing effects. Professor Shigeru Mukaida from Hokkaido Information University found that the pull of gravity on the upper half of the face was the primary aesthetic signal of age. Mukaida also concludes that the 30s and 40s are the most essential age periods to cure such imbalance. Together, AQMW Repletion and iP.Shot lift the skin’s cellular architecture for an unparalleled youth-inducing effect—restoring balance, if you will. irstly, AQMW Repletion should be used as an all-over serum. The key to its power is its focus on progenitor cells, which create new epidermal cells and consequently keep the skin lifted and healthy from within. The epidermis is the skin’s outer layer, and when iP.Shot is applied selectively to wrinkles, it will reach the deeper layer, the dermis, where the magic touch doubles. The iP.Shot reaches the core facilitator of collagen and elastin production: the fibroblast cell and the quality of its mitochondria. What this means is that each layer of the skin is given a systematic boost completely backed by cellular science, with the targeted iP.Shot reaching the DNA level—a regimen never previously possible. exture, scent, feeling—sensations are just as crucial for the potency of the ritual. A relaxing blend of essential oils and sandalwood infuse AQMW Repletion in order to combat the damage caused by stress. Similarly, iP.Shot’s aroma was also designed for soothing benefits: citrus, woody, and floral notes come together for a multi-sensory experience. Together, the products fulfil the AQMW line’s ethos of “Integrated Beauty”, which leverages on the synergy between healing the skin and the mind, for ultimate radiant results. If there’s a process to lift your skin and spirits, it’s this—and if there’s a time to do it, it’s now.
