Skin Care

By Candice Sabatini

Serum lovers swoon! Your beauty sleep is about to become even more beautiful! Recently introduced from Lancome is Absolue Ultimate Night Bx. New technology features Pro-Xylane, Lancôme’s most powerful molecule which works to visibly restructure skin by delivering intense hydration deep into the skin and boost cellular renewal while you dream. Other important ingredients, to name just a few, are wild yam, sea algae, synthesis of collagen, and peptide rich soy. Miracles don’t happen overnight sleeping beauty, and while it certainly makes your skin feel good and look nice immediately, it will take three months to see real clarity and firmer skin and after six months studies showed that women saw improvement in density, firmness and wrinkles. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and better skin is worth a commitment!

Lancome labs sure have been busy lately! Also recently launched is Bienfait Multi-Vital Eyes with SPF 28. Very few eye creams contain an SPF, and most day creams with sunscreen can’t be used around the eyes, so I was thrilled when I heard about this one. I’m happy to report that there’s no stinging or burning and its wonderful creamy texture helped the dehydration around my eyes. Along with broad spectrum sunscreen, it contains vitamins E & B5 to help protect delicate skin, as well as caffeine which helps lessen the look of puffiness and dark circles.

This is the time of year my dry skin starts crying out for help and I want something I can slather all over my body morning and night that will moisturize and leave my skin soft, not flakey. And oh yeah, I want it to have a clean scent that won’t interfere with my perfume; it can’t be greasy, it shouldn’t cost a fortune, yet I still want something that’s class, not mass. And if it’s from France…. well then, even better ma cherie! Body Lotion with Cold Cream by Eau Thermal Avene is the perfect answer. Containing the famous Thermal Spring Water, plus safflower, cocoa and sesame oils; I love how this body cream soothes my skin so the only flakes I have to deal are my crazy friends.

Our faces also need extra protection in this weather. Comfort on Call, a brand new face cream from Clinique, protects skin that reacts to irritants via the use of the Jabara Fruit Extract. This rare citrus fruit grows in a small, remote village in Japan. Its inhabitants are virtually allergy free which is attributed to this superfood. Scientists have discovered that the jabara’s high levels of isoflavonoids provide anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy benefits. My sensitive skin loves the rich creamy texture while it still allows my makeup to go on smoothly.
