With age, skin is affected by fine lines and wrinkles. A loss of elastin means skin loses its plumpness, the cheeks become hollow, the chin slackens and the neck begins to sag. We may not be able to turn back time, but we are able to fight the signs of ageing, thanks to a range of products aimed at these specific problems.

Sisleya's Global Firming Serum targets elastin loss. At the heart of the product is dill extract, said to improve elastin quality, tightening the skin to redesign the facial contours. Tiger nut extract, rye extract and oat seed extract restore skin's bounce, fight against gravity and provide instant lift to the skin's surface, improving tone, resilience and firmness for a more youthful looking face.

Cle de Peau Beaute's La Creme 'Illuminating Complex' is an exclusive ingredient based on 'Neuro Skin Theory'. Featuring elements derived from natural silk and pearl, the product reduces cellular stress and controls the quality of the information transmitted to the cell's brain centre.

This promotes the creation of healthier, more translucent cells. The result is the creation of 'Illuminating Cells' with ideal nanostructures capable of producing and capturing light on their own.

These cells then act as light sources within the skin structure, resulting in a more luminous, youthful complexion.

Estee Lauder's Time Zone includes Sirtuin EX1, TriHyaluranic Complex and has an SPF15 sunscreen added to fight the sun's ultraviolet rays. The Sirtuin EX1 decreases the fine lines of ageing by increasing natural proteins in the skin. For skin cell regeneration and moisturising, the TriHyaluranic Complex works as an anti-oxidant, which is increasingly popular in anti-ageing treatments throughout Asia.

Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Creme is designed to repair, recharge and restore. It is a fusion of Estee Lauder's 'Life ReNewing Molecules' and precious black tourmaline, a charged mineral known for its energy giving properties. Together, they deliver dramatic age-correcting results.

An advanced, multibenefit serum, Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement, improves skin's appearance, helping prevent the visible signs of ageing.
