Asian women, unlike our Western counterparts, experience facial sagging at an earlier age thanks to our thicker skin, flatter facial contours and bone structure. Skin sagging also becomes more prominent with factors such as poor blood and oxygen circulation, dehydration and lowered metabolism.
Japanese cosmetics giant Dr.Ci:Labo, a pioneer in creating a single anti-ageing product that provides multiple skincare benefits, has been continually pursuing its goal of creating an all-in-one moisturiser that promises firm and moisturised skin. The result is its ultimate moisturiser, the Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX ($75 for 50g, $150 for 120g), a luxurious gel-cream free from parabens, artificial fragrances, synthetic colourants and mineral oil.
Made by dermatologists in Japan, the all-in-one skincare solution boasts an ingredient called the 3D Fascia Band that combines collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and rye seed extract to form an invisible veil on the skin surface for a multi-dimensional lifting and firming effect. It also contains ingredients that are said to boost moisture retention and improve lymph drainage for overall smoothness and elasticity.
The multifunctional moisturiser can be used on its own, replacing toner, serum, eye care and makeup base if desired, or layered with other products without feeling heavy or greasy thanks to its light, non-sticky finish.
