Slather on Tar­geted Skin­care

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty -

You can­not re­verse age­ing. Just as your body slows down, so too, do your skin func­tions. When this hap­pens, a “mas­ter switch” in your skin cells starts to lose its abil­ity to pro­tect and re­gen­er­ate it­self. And this leads to dull, rough and wrinkly skin.

That’s be­cause this mas­ter switch is re­spon­si­ble for boost­ing the en­vi­ron­ment sur­round­ing each skin cell and cre­at­ing more re­silient cells, mak­ing your skin firmer and more ra­di­ant.

SK-II sci­en­tists have found that you can re­store the ac­tiv­ity of this switch – even as you age.

With the dis­cov­ery of how ar­ti­choke ex­tract can im­prove skin, the sci­en­tists cre­ated their lat­est anti-age­ing skin­care serum, SK-II Stem­power Essence. “It re­vives cell ac­tiv­ity by con­stantly stim­u­lat­ing the ‘switch’,” said Dr Ruby Gha­di­ally, a der­ma­tol­o­gist and mem­ber of the SK-II Skin Cell Re­search Ad­vi­sory Board, at the beauty brand’s press con­fer­ence in Seoul, Korea.

The serum’s key in­gre­di­ent is Stem-acanax ES Com­plex, which con­tains ar­ti­choke ex­tract to stim­u­late the switch to re­vive skin’s re­gen­er­a­tive func­tions, Stem-acanax de­rived from Siberian gin­seng to firm up skin, and a Kin­ren ex­tract to re­vive in­ner cell den­sity for bouncier skin.

This light­weight serum also im­proves your skin tex­ture and firm­ness, so that skin feels smoother and more sup­ple, pores look smaller and your com­plex­ion sim­ply glows.

SK-II Stem­power Essence, $156 for 30ml
