In our midlife, we’re more at ease in our own skin, and our life experiences show on our faces. And we want our skincare to support our skin, so that it feels as supple and resilient as it possibly can. It’s been a challenging year, and stress has an impact on our skin, causing it to become less responsive and more vulnerable to aggressors. Stress can cause the skin to communicate less effectively with the brain, and its sensory receptors to become reduced. Shiseido’s labs have been studying ways of working with the skin’s own systems to counter these effects. Discover two fast-acting, cutting-edge solutions to support your skin this winter:
Proactive pro-ageing with Shiseido Vital Perfection
Shiseido Vital Perfection offers targeted, multifunctional care to support your skin on every level. The range helps to counteract the visible signs of ageing, such as loss of elasticity, wrinkles and dark spots. We all need a revitalising skin boost right now – and in clinical tests, skin was firmer and brighter in four weeks, and visibly lifted after just one week. With Shiseido ReNeura technology++™, inspired by neuroscience, skin’s ability to renew is enhanced.
Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Cream is deeply moisturising, instantly cocooning the skin and helping to boost its elasticity; for winter, the velvety Enriched version is especially nourishing. In clinical tests, both creams were shown to promote a more resilient, brighter and more lifted look in four weeks, with visible improvements even on the more stubborn signs of ageing, such as sagging and dark spots.
Protection is the most important thing you can do for your skin, all year round, and Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Day Cream helps to defend skin from dryness and UV damage with SPF30; if you prefer a feather-weight feel, Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Day Emulsion SPF30 is light but luxurious. Finally, make your sleep count with Vital Perfection Overnight Firming Treatment, to wake up with skin that looks brighter and more lifted. A subtle scent of Japanese orchid and fresh citrus gives the entire range an elegant and luxurious feel.
DE-STRESS YOUR SKIN
Maintain smoother, plumper skin with Shiseido Benefiance
Originally launched in 1996, Benefiance has been pushing boundaries in pro-ageing ever since, harnessing new scientific discoveries. The range brings together a powerhouse of exclusive technology from Shiseido’s research labs dedicated to maintaining youthful-looking skin – resulting in skin that feels smoother and more resilient. With cutting-edge active ingredients and Shiseido’s exclusive ReNeura Technology+™, Benefiance helps to return skin to optimal functioning.
The hero is the exceptionally lightweight, skin-sculpting Wrinkle Smoothing Cream, powered by three different types of Japanese seaweed, plus active ingredients including turmeric and chlorella to combat photo-ageing: it works to transform skin texture in just two weeks. A creamier formulation, Enriched Wrinkle Smoothing Cream, nourishes dry skin. The Day Cream features SPF25 sunscreen to protect from UV rays.
And to counter lines and loss of resilience, Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Contour Serum is designed to address deep wrinkles from within. In just one week, testers* saw a visible reduction in lines on the forehead and around the mouth. Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream is an advanced formula giving an intense boost of moisturisation to this fragile area, where stress can result in wrinkles.
It combines powerful antioxidants and collagen-boosting Yuzu extract, plus Shiseido’s new Aqua Peptide, to help skin to release creases more easily. In clinical tests, it visibly reduced the appearance of wrinkles in just one week; and 86 per cent of testers found it to be fast-acting, even on lines between the brows. We’re on our way to firmer, more resilient skin …
