Tested for you: Neck and décolleté concentrate “The Elevator” by Trinny London

The neck and décolleté are often the poor relation when it comes to skin care routines. Yet these two areas of the body in particular need a lot of attention. This is because the skin on the neck and décolleté is twice as thin as on the rest of the body. It is also drier because there are fewer sebaceous glands and there are also fewer collagen fibers in these areas to support firmness and elasticity. The neck and décolleté therefore have little power to resist gravity. But that’s not all. The neck in particular is constantly in motion and permanently exposed to UV radiation, often without sun protection. The frequent turning and tilting of the head can cause horizontal wrinkles to form on the neck. The skin on the décolleté, on the other hand, can stretch due to the weight of the breast and cause vertical wrinkles to form. For these reasons, the skin in these two areas often ages visibly faster than on the face. Similar to the hands, the neck and décolleté reveal a woman’s true age. From the age of 30, it is therefore advisable to regularly moisturize and protect the skin of the neck and décolleté. “Elevator” lifts the neck and décolleté While it is good to apply skincare to the neck, a targeted approach is even better. Trinny London has developed “The Elevator”, a rich, highly active skincare concentrate – vegan and free from animal testing – to reduce precisely the unloved ageing processes described above. “It took us a long time to develop a formulation in our laboratory that actually works. Our highly effective concentrate tackles sagging skin with ingredients that lift and firm the neck – for a neck you won’t want to hide.” Trinny Woodall, founder & CEO What exactly is a concentrate? A concentrate contains the best active ingredients from a serum and a moisturizer. It delivers highly effective substances in a rich, nourishing composition to address persistent skin needs in specific areas. It’s going up … Trinny London’s concentrate targets the problems of the neck and décolleté and reduces the impact of the factors that lead to accelerated skin ageing in these often neglected areas of the body. In “The Elevator”, this is an innovative cohesive technology that strengthens the “glue” that holds the skin layers together. More specifically, it is the phyto-extract from the Isodon plant that strengthens the genes that hold the epidermis and dermis together.… weiterlesen

My Tip: Lifting at the Hairdresser, the slightly different Beauty Cut

For a rejuvenating effect on the face, you don’t always have to see the Beauty Doc with a syringe or even the scalpel. Stefan M. Pauli, owner of the Salon Pauli in the Brienner Quartier in Munich, told me how the right haircut can rejuvenate a face and make it look brighter. That a haircut can have a good lifting effect sounds strange at first. “But that’s right,” confirms Stefan M. Pauli. “All lines on the face that are aspiring radiate something positive, lively, friendly. Everything that optically points down does the opposite.“ Seems logical to me! Because dropping corners of the mouth and long, straight hair hanging down, have always something sad. Precisely such features are decisive for the haircut, especially for the contours on the face. Creating counter energies Pauli: „I look at where I see lines emerging in the customer’s face, which I emphasize with the contouring, i.e. cut, or conceal if necessary. For example, if someone has strong nasolabial folds or sloping corners of the mouth, and then I cut hair that has the same course at exactly this height, the face looks even more tired. If I also lose fullness on the top of the head, I get the feeling that energy really escapes from this look.“ As a countermeasure, the cut is kept slightly shorter at the top, so that the first lot of the hair already makes a swing outwards. “With this I create a counter energy to the falling lines”, explains the expert. But only a real hair professional can do that. You shouldn’t even attempt such experiments yourself. Not even if you have already practiced on yourself and others with scissors during the corona lockdown! Stefan M.
