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.

Hanukkah kit

And­Joy stu­dio, the pi­o­neer­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion for em­ploy­ment of dis­abled peo­ple, of­fers for this hol­i­day a lovely box of can­dles, which is also a Hanukkiah (Hanukkah meno­rah). Beau­ti­ful! NIS 40 for or­ders go to and­joy.co.il or call (03) 901-1735.

Look like a star

Guer­lain launches a new foun­da­tion stick in the iconic Ter­ra­cotta col­lec­tion. The self-tan­ning col­lec­tion is a cor­ner­stone of the top makeup artists’ bags, help­ing cre­ate a ra­di­ant look to even the most tired skin. Now the new ad­di­tion of foun­da­tion stick in five shades, as well as two shades of high­lighter, help con­tour the face, cover un­even skin tone and add glamor. Use dark shades and high­lighter for con­tour­ing, and your skin tone for cov­er­ing im­per­fec­tions. (NIS 169).

The magic oil

Co­conut oil is con­sid­ered by many to be the magic oil. El­vive by L’Oreal Paris launched a new se­ries that har­nesses co­conut oil’s nour­ish­ing qual­i­ties to ben­e­fit the hair. The new line, for nor­mal to dry hair, in­cludes co­conut oil that the com­pany says helps pro­tect the hair fiber, nour­ishes the roots and re­duces the loss of pro­teins in the hair. Adding hy­dra­tion, treat­ing med­i­cal con­di­tions such as dan­druff and pro­tect­ing the hair from en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­ages, the new line in­cludes Ex­tra­or­di­nary Oil Sham­poo (NIS

17.90), Ex­tra­or­di­nary Oil Con­di­tioner (NIS 17.90) and Ex­tra­or­di­nary Oil Hy­drat­ing Mask (NIS 34.90).

Breathe easy

Mo­raz in­tro­duces Afkal – an herbal oint­ment that helps re­lieve nasal con­ges­tion for ba­bies. The cold season brings nasal con­ges­tion and for ba­bies this of­ten means no sleep. Afkal’s new oil is based on 100% nat­u­ral oils such as men­thol, eu­ca­lyp­tus, worm­wood, za­atar and jo­joba. When rubbed on both sides of the baby’s nose, the oil treats the skin while re­liev­ing the con­ges­tion. Easy ap­pli­ca­tion means that you can rub the oil while the child sleeps.

(NIS 44.90) To com­plete the treat­ment use Afkal wet wipes with herbal oils and no al­co­hol. Per­fect for sen­si­tive skin. (NIS 24.90)

Get the party look

L’Oreal Paris’ makeup artist presents 2020 New Year’s glam look. Start with good vel­vety foun­da­tion and blend all the way to the neck. For added glam, mix foun­da­tion with two-three drops of shim­mer. Use the same shim­mer to high­light cheek­bones, nose bridge and cupid bow in the lips. Use a pink blush and mix with earth color for con­tour­ing. For the eyes, use earthy-shim­mer­ing shade on the lids and add depth with a darker tone. For added drama, use a vol­ume-en­hanc­ing mas­cara and a red­hot lip­stick. Have a glam New Year.

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. (NIS 229) Avail­able in pri­vate phar­ma­cies and Su­per-Pharm, or call 09-773-0800

Pizza with­out the guilt

The se­crets of Lionel Messi’s re­cov­ery diet are now avail­able for all at Domino’s Pizza, at least that is what the com­pany ad­ver­tises. The new Domino’s Pro Pizza is de­signed for those who work out and helps re­cover from heavy train­ing. The prod­uct was cre­ated to­gether with nu­tri­tion­ist Rake­fet Arieli, who spe­cial­izes in sport nu­tri­tion and who was in Barcelona to learn about what the num­ber-one foot­ball player in the world eats af­ter train­ing. The spelt­dough pizza sup­plies all the body needs af­ter train­ing in or­der to re­cover and be ready for the next game. Reg­u­larly, NIS 86.90, the price for launch­ing will be NIS 79.90 in­clud­ing one ad­di­tion of your choice.
