Beauty Alexa Chung's Six Must-have Products
The same fuss-free, streamlined approach can be said for Chung's new collaboration with Code8, All-Day Soirée, £95, a lipstick trio made up of hues the designer and TV personality most often reaches for. Affogato, a matte pink-beige nude is much like her own lips but enhanced and reminiscent of the on-trend 90s supermodel era that shows no sign of waning, while Peach Dream is the type of warm pink Chung used to try and create on the back of her hand right before going on TV, she tells me.
Platinum Deluxe Cosmetics we aim to enhance and maximize your beauty with a line of luxury cosmetics at the highest of quality. Using only the purest and richest ingredients we have a variety of products that will protect, revive and hydrate your skin, each extensively researched and developed to provide you with the ultimate skin care.
Hyaluronic acid: Found naturally in the skin, hyaluronic acid draws in water, which helps to hydrate and plump the skin. Many times, under-eye wrinkles are a result of dryness, Dr. Rao says, and hyaluronic acid is well-studied and shown to help reduce the signs of aging. (Check out these eye creams for dry skin if hydration is your main problem.)
✔️Peptides: Copper peptides, polypeptides, and oligopeptides are thought to penetrate the skin and help build hyaluronic acid and collagen. These structural proteins hold cells and tissues together like glue, diminishing the look of wrinkles.
✔️Retinol: This vitamin A derivative stimulates collagen production and promotes cell turnover to help reduce the signs of aging. Because the skin under the eyes is so sensitive, the dermatologists we spoke to recommended products with relatively low concentrations of retinol.
✔️Sunscreen: “This one’s a no-brainer,” says Dr. Rao. Without proper protection, UV rays break down collagen and age your skin. (Unfortunately, SPF can be tough to find in eye creams, so supplement with your face sunscreen if necessary!)
✔️Antioxidants: Vitamins C and E, ferulic acid, and berry extracts help reduce oxidative stress due to UV rays or pollutants, explains Dr. Rao. Antioxidants also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
