"Sisley’s patented complex protects and reveals your radiance"
"LE LIFT Crème Yeux, $140, Chanel"
Raise your glass to a fresh gaze framed by smooth, wrinkle-free eye contours, courtesy of LE LIFT Crème Yeux, a new eye cream from Chanel. Specially formulated to improve microcirculation and help boost collagen production, it works on reducing the look of signs of ageing and fatigue, such as fine lines, sagging skin, dark circles and puffiness, thanks to a unique alfalfa concentrate that mimics the effect of retinol while being gentle on the delicate eye area.
LET THERE BE LIGHT
Brighten even the dullest of complexions with these radiance-enhancing products
PRESTIGE LIGHT-IN-WHITE L’OLÉO ESSENCE LUMIÈRE, $167, DIOR
Harnessing the brightening and revitalising prowess of the White Rose and Rose de Granville respectively, this targets melanin and glycated proteins, which can cause pigmentation, a yellowing of skin, dryness, blotchiness and an uneven skin tone.
PURE SHOTS LIGHT UP SERUM, $139, YSL BEAUTÉ
Tailored for the busy woman, this is your once-and-done radiance solution that brightens and improves overall tone, reduces dark spots and discoloration, and boosts skin’s ability to defend against environmental aggressors. The ingredients we have to thank for this? Vitamin Cg (a vitamin C derivative) and marshmallow flower extract.
PHYTO-BLANC LE CONCENTRÉ PURE BRIGHT ACTIVATING SERUM, $430, SISLEY
Ever wondered why the palms are the fairest parts of the body? Turns out the fibroblasts there produce a kind of protein, the DKK1, that inhibits melanin production. Sisley’s new serum is formulated with Egyptian Myrobalan extract, which mimics this fibroblast activity. Working in tandem with this ingredient is a patented complex that targets existing dark spots, and vitamin E acetate and alpha-bisabolol, which protects skin from external aggressors that can lead to the formation of new ones.
SKIN ELIXIR, $68, WHAL MYUNG
Packed with natural herbs and ingredients used in traditional Korean medicine, this anti-ager does triple duty as toner, serum and oil. Besides brightening the complexion, it delivers a boost of moisture to skin, keeping it soft and supple.
SUBLIMAGE LA COLLECTION LUMIÈRE, $195 TO $594, CHANEL
This new collection from Chanel’s luxe skincare range is anchored by star active ingredient, the patented Natural Anthyllis Extract. Cultivated from its namesake Alpine plant that thrives in extreme conditions, it has brightening, astringent, soothing and reparative properties. Shea butter and hyaluronic acid also help keep skin soft and supple. For an all-around glow, prep skin with Sublimage La Lotion Lumière Exfoliante before using La Crème Lumière.
