5 ANTI-AGEING PICKS
When your body’s metabolism starts slowing down in your 30s, so too does collagen production and cell turnover in your skin. Here’s our pick of the luxe new skin-savers to look out for.
5. Eye candy
Lancôme Absolue Eye Precious Cells Intense Revitalizing Eye Cream, $224, has been reformulated using rose centifolia extract to fight wrinkles and Pro-xylane to prevent water loss and boost the volume of delicate skin.
4. Face up
Brighten dull-looking skin with Elizabeth Arden PRO Illuminating Enzyme Masque, $130. The rich, creamy mask contains energising chlorogenic acids (from coffee beans), ginger root extract and vitamin E.
3. Gold standard
With a new and improved formula, Elizabeth Arden’s Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum, $150 (60 capsules), works to increase the skin’s ceramide levels and improve the barrier function.
2. Two become one
If you want a quick fix, La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo, $490, promises results in just 14 days. It uses specialised peptides that work at different levels in the skin to prevent muscles from contracting, and the resulting formation of lines, by inhibiting the signalling pathway.
1. The A-game
From the new Skin Essentia range, Environ’s Mild Cleansing Lotion, $77, is enriched with jojoba seed oil to moisturise skin while cleansing, and sorbitol, a humectant derived from corn syrup, to keep it supple.
