The secret of underwater skincare

La Prairie HERO.jpg

It’s fair to say that, historically, algae hasn’t been associated with physical attraction. Cleopatra bathed in ass’s milk, not seawater, and SpongeBob always struggled with the ladies.

However, not all algae is the type you’ve seen growing in a neglected goldfish bowl, and the skin experts working at La Prairie are well aware of that fact. That’s why they’ve created the Advanced Marine Biology collection. Comprising five products, the collection implements the natural qualities of algae that work to keep your skin looking young.

The products in the collection include a foaming mousse cleanser (£40), a revitalising emulsion for eyes, face and neck (£86), an eye gel (£66), a day cream (£86) and a tonic (£64).

And if you’re still sceptical about the rejuvenating qualities of aquatic vegetation, answer this: have you ever seen a fish with wrinkles?
