Common signs of ageing skin that we all talk about include dullness, fine lines, age spots and sagging. The trickiest, and possibly hardest to conceal, is sagging. It happens so gradually we barely discern it, till we wake up one morning and realise that we look different: older, more haggard, with lines around the eyes and mouth. To combat this problem, firm skin and sculpt contours for a more youthful appearance, Shiseido has created its Vital-Perfection Sculpting Lift Cream.
Its key ingredients are pine extract, which supposedly stabilises the structure of lymph vessels to block the escape of fatty acids, cinnamon extract, said to reinforce lymph vessels and minimise the escape of waste and water, and rubus leaf extract, which supposedly shrinks fat cells. Another main ingredient in this rich yet easily absorbed cream is the exclusive Shiseido VP8 complex. This is designed to tackle all the other signs of ageing, including the look of wrinkles, fine lines, existing age spots, dullness, roughness, dryness, and yellowing skin.
