It will surprise precisely no one to read that as you age, your skin deteriorates. As a part of life, it’s as unavoidable as the grey around your temples and the terror that accompanies approaches to a nightclub dancefloor.
But Clinique is claiming a breakthrough — a new Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream that uses extracts of brown algae to visibly firm, volumise and restore skin texture. It’s designed to target all three layers of skin — the top, middle and bottom, or epidermis, dermis and hypodermis if you want to be scientific about it.
Priced £50 for 50ml, it’s available in two skin-type formulas, exclusively at Selfridges and Brown Thomas from 2 March and then at Clinique counters nationwide from 16 March.
