Sisley is launching an eye and lip cream for the sleep-deprived
No more excuses
It's time for a reality check. How often is it that we manage to get a well-rested eight hours' worth of sleep and lead a stress-free lifestyle? If your answer is hardly, or never, you're not alone. Most modern-day women pride themselves on being able to juggle it all — excelling at our jobs and raising a brood while trying to put food on the table (thank you, UberEATS and Deliveroo). With the recurring demands on everyday life, it comes as no surprise that your skin – and your eyes in particular — are the first to showcase early signs of ageing.
Apart from genetic and environmental ageing, the experts at Sisley have identified behavioral ageing as the most pressing factor when it comes to wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Behavioral ageing stems from lifestyle choices such as smoking, sun exposure, lack of sleep, and stress. To combat this, Sisley is launching a brilliant new product — the Sisleÿa L'Integral Anti-Age Eye and Lip Contour Cream — that focuses on the behavioral dimension of ageing. This lightweight formula pledges to work double duty, leaving your eyes brighter and fresher, and your lips firmer and softer. Two life-changing functions, all in one nifty jar.
Infused with Sisleÿa L'Integral Anti-Age's flagship active ingredients such as Persian acacia extract, lindera extract, as well as yeast and soya protein complex, the efficacious blend promotes healthy functioning throughout the cell's lifecycle to improve skin tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the eye and lip contour areas. And the checklist goes on: Soy peptide extract and Vitamin C acetate firm the eyelids, atlas cedar and passion fruit extract target puffiness and dark circles, while shea butter and pro-Vitamin B4 moisturise and nourish the area.
In addition to the cream itself, this ace product comes with a limited-edition massage tool to promote microcirculation before you apply the product on your eyes and lips. Try these techniques: Roll the device below one eye then above the eyebrow and eyelid, working from the inside outwards. Then roll over the upper lip from the centre outwards. Apply light pressure, and use zig-zag movements, followed by to-and-fro motions at the outer corner of the eye to smooth crow's feet.
Put on some candles, soft music, and get your partner or best friend to do it with you, because who said this routine can't be part of a home spa ritual or pre-bedtime party? You'll wake up looking like you just had the best sleep of your life.
