Take off five years
The latest research in epigenetics suggests that our exposome – our environment and lifestyle, accounts for up to 50% of visible signs of skin aging. On average, smoking can make skin look two years older, excess sun six-and-a-half years older, poor sleep quality two-and-a-half years older, and an unhealthy diet two years older. According to Dermalogica’s experts, the company’s new Phyto-Nature Firming Serum is clinically proven to give five years back, reawakening and safeguarding the nature of younger-looking skin.
This groundbreaking dual-phase serum contains a firming phase powered by Sapphire-bound biomimetic peptides to help firm skin and reinforce skin defenses. The Sapphire helps shield the peptides and increase their bioavailability as they work to mimic natural qualities of skin that decline with exposome-driven aging. Phyto-Nature Firming Serum also contains a lifting phase powered by modern plant-based technology and ancient botanical wisdom. The bottom line – we tried it for a week and already see results. Amazing! But breakthroughs do not come cheap – the serum costs NIS 677, but it will keep for a long time. Follow with your hydrating cream in the morning and night cream at night.

Skin’s daily wake-up call
Vichy’s new LiftActive “Collagen Specialist” day cream was inspired, say the company’s experts, by an aesthetic procedure that stimulates fibroblasts to boost collagen production. Liftactiv Collagen Specialist targets all the aging signs that are linked to collagen loss. The new cream boosts the skin’s collagen production and fights aging signs by lifting wrinkles and fine lines, redefining contours and bringing a more even skin tone. With Vitamin CG – also known as ascorbyl glucoside, a synthetic form of Vitamin C – and collagen-protecting biopeptides, the new cream has a soft, velvety touch formula that instantly smooths skin.
