It has been said that as you get older, you have to decide between your body and your face. While most of us spend a fortune above the neck, when it comes to keeping the skin of the body in great shape, we often slack off. If your bod’s in need of a boost this season, Sisley’s got you covered with their first major global anti-aging skincare for the body -Sisleÿa Anti-Aging Concentrate Firming Body Care.
While it is true that the skin of the body tends to be thicker than that of the face, it is affected by the aging process and sun damage in the same way. Prolonged sun exposure – especially on arms and legs – will and cause brown spots and dry, flaky, leathery feeling skin which makes you look older. Self tanners may give you the bronze look you are seeking, but many of these don’t have sufficient UVA/UVB protection. According to Long Island Facial Plastic Surgeon Jon Turk, M.D., “Using a high SPF daily is important when you will be outside, for your face and your body as well. Most women are less focused on sun protection for their body, except when they are at the beach or pool. But even occasional UV exposure contributes to prematurely aged skin.”
To fight the war against sagging, dehydrated and discolored skin, Sisley created an intense concentrate of 19 plant-based active ingredients in a lovely hydrating cream that is absorbed rapidly. Hubert d’Ornano founded Sisley-Paris in 1976 based on his innovative use of botanical active ingredients and essential oils and the Sisleya collection has become much loved by the brand’s devotees.
Sisleÿa Anti-Aging Concentrate Firming Body Care can be used all over your body – decollete, arms, legs, tummy, hips and thighs – but at $475 you won’t want to waste a drop. It is meant to apply morning and evening, but we think it’s too special as a substitute for an everyday moisturizer. Save it for bedtime after a warm bath when the comfort of this decadent treatment cream will make your whole body feel soft and toned. As always, Sisley’s packaging is simple, clean and functional, with a touch of old world luxury. There is a spatula included to help you spread this nectar of the gods efficiently and keep the jar otherwise neat and tidy.
Don’t forget that your hands can give away your age too. Sisleya Global Anti-Age Hand Care SPF 10 ($165) comes in a classic white tube to keep your hands feeling soft and smooth for hours every day with an added SPF for protection.
If a golden glow is on your To Do list this season, Sisley Self-Tanning Gel ($139) in two shades for fair and darker skin types will give you an even tan in two hours. This moisturizing gel contains sesame and corn oil for ultimate bronzing.
