There comes an age when we can finally feel beautiful and confident just the way we are … naturally radiant. So we’re loving the new range from Clarins, devoted to the ‘silver’ generation. The Nutri-Lumière range has four new exceptional skin care products to deliver a complete pro-ageing nutrition action. All nourishing and revitalising, there’s a day cream, a day emulsion for those who prefer a lightweight lotion, a comforting, melting night cream and a renewing treatment essence. From R820 to R1985 from clarins.co.za


Sagging skin. Wrinkles. A dull complexion. Everything we don’t want for Christmas. So unwrap one of the new SVR ultra-concentrated ampoules and let them do their magical thing. There are a trio of these phenomenal little powerhouses. Ampoule A has Vitamin A / Retinol – a leading anti-aging active ingredient which retexturises the skin and corrects deep wrinkles. • Ampoule B3 has a high concentration of vitamin B3 which soothes and strengthens the skin, lastingly restores skin’s moisture reserves,  skin becomes plumper and the signs of aging are diminished. •Ampoule C contains 20 per cent optimised Vitamin C … it recharges the skins batteries and leaves skin radiant. R725 each from riekiemedaesthetic.co.za and absoluteskin.co.za.


Wet n Wild cult-favourite Photo Focus has just launched Dewy Foundation … weightless, super-nourishing, with natural, all-day wear. Also easily buildable, so works from day to night. R99. Add a little shimmer with the Hello Halo Blushlighter in After Sex Glow, R99. Both exclusive to Clicks •And for golden eyes, also look out for Pretty by Flormar Stars Baked Eyeshadow in Golden Party … it’s long lasting, works wet or dry and adds a glam shimmer. Also in Silver Blaze. R99.95 each, only from Foschini.


Glow girl. Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter is a radiance-enhancing highlighter … gossamer-light, it melts into your skin for a barely-there feel, and gives a soft, luminous, natural-looking glow. R610 •Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows come in gold and bronze party shades … think Kitten Karma, Bronzed Belle, Retro Rosegold and Perlina – rich, beautiful colour with a high shimmer sheen, minus the glitter! R395. Stila available at Woolworths.


Needing to hydrate and retain moisture all day? Solal Hydration Serum is just what your skincare regime needs as we enter a new season, which not only does that, but also helps repair the skin barrier and has skin-soothing properties. Solal Even Tone Serum is suitable for all skin types and ages – especially those with mature skin who tend to suffer from age spots. With ingredients that brighten skin, it does what it says … gives the skin a more even appearance. R439 each from Dis-Chem.


Everyone needs a signature scent … and this season, ours is Mont Blanc Signature. This eau de parfum is chic, addictive and above all, ultrafeminine. It’s all sparkling clementine, enchanting magnolia and ylang-ylang, sensual vanilla and musk. From R999 at Woolworths.


You may be on holiday, but your skin isn’t. Take it seriously … as do the NeoStrata gurus. For mature, sun-damaged, dry skin, as well as early signs of ageing, Neostrata Skin Active Antioxidant Defense Serum is a powerful antioxidant formulation, which also helps give extra moisture to the skin. R1060. For eyes, the Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is a high strength, deeply hydrating cream which prevents and corrects all visible signs of ageing, targets puffiness and crow’s feet and helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. R1110. And for necks (always an ageing giveaway), Triple Firming Neck Cream is another intensive formula for a very specific concern, helping to reduce signs of ageing in the neck and décolletage area. R1075. Shop online at dermastore.co.za
