Stock up on this breakthrough innovation in skincare and you’ll be well on your way to a healthy, radiant complexion. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm Sculpting Gel ($151) fights gravity with a blend of collagen-enhancing acetyl tripeptide-2, skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and youth-restoring botanical extracts. The clever roll-on formula glides on to sculpt and refine facial contours.
“I like to apply it with a lymphatic massage to stimulate facial lymph nodes and give the body’s natural detox process a boost before applying the product,” says Dr Dendy Engelman, Elizabeth Arden consulting dermatologist. “I start by gently massaging the nodes above the collarbone. By doing this, I’m prepping the drainage system to trap and flush toxins. Then, using the Ceramide Lift and Firm Sculpting Gel, I start under the eyes and work towards the ears on both sides, then carry out the same motion starting above the eyes. From there I like to go under the cheekbone and roll outward along the jawbone to the nodes behind the ears and down the sides of the neck to the collarbone.”
Engelmann adds that she hopes to see more development in beauty tools that can be used along with product like the Ceramide Lift and Firm Sculpting Gel to really create resilient, glowing skin. “There are so many things that are good that could be better when it comes to beauty tools and at-home devices. They have such potential, but don’t always have the delivery we hope they did”, she says.
