Want youthful-and healthy-looking skin? Your best bet is using a skincare range designed to hydrate and boost collagen production.
You may not have liked your chubby cheeks when you were younger, but as it turns out, puppy fat is what keeps you looking young. When we’re young, fat in the face is evenly distributed, with pockets of fat plumping up the cheeks, forehead, eye contour and mouth area. You’ll notice, though, that with age and weight loss, these pockets of fat shrink and head south, resulting in, among other things, saggy jowls. While you can’t stop the ageing process, you can minimise its effects on your visage with Eucerin’s Volume-filler range. Here, five things you should know about the anti-ageing range.
It is powered by three key active ingredients with hydrating and anti-ageing properties.
Working in tandem to hydrate the skin and counter the signs of ageing are magnolol, oligo peptides and hyaluronic acid. The first is said to increase the amount and size of fat cells up to three times, while the second, derived from the anise plant, reportedly stimulates collagen production. The last works as an effective humectant to deeply hydrate the skin and reduce the look of wrinkles.
It is suitable for anyone aged 30 and above.
The skin starts ageing naturally in your mid-twenties, so you should be using an anti-ageing range by the time you hit 30.
It has all the anti-ageing products you need for a youthful mien.
Designed to work from the inside out, the range comprises four products – a day cream, a night cream, an eye-care product and an intensive serum – that work synergistically to keep your skin looking young.
You can expect a Y-shape face after just four weeks of continuous use.
We’re talking about a sharper jawline, plumper skin, and a firmer, tighter neck. In fact, in a trial conducted by the brand, 91 per cent of the 186 participants who used the serum, along with the day cream, for a mere two weeks noted a more defined facial contour.
The must-use product is the Volume-filler Day cream.
The importance of hydration and sun protection cannot be overstated, and this product provides both. Apart from the three actives, it has a sun protection factor of 15 to help protect the skin from photoageing. Plus, its light and smooth texture makes it a great makeup base.

A BURGUNDY WINGED EYE The sexy cat-eye look gets an injection of cool. To create the latest update, first apply a taupe eyeshadow. Then, layer on a bordeaux shade and extend the colour outwards to create a winged shape; for a smokey finish, blur the edges with a brush. Finally, use a burgundy liner on the lash lines to define the eyes.
