Beauty addicts’ beloved Advanced Night Repair ($47.50) by Estée Lauder has been reformulated with high-tech innovations—specifically, Chronolux technology, which re-synchronizes your skin’s renewal process. While you sleep your skin cells regenerate and heal, but environmental damage (one of the main causes of aging) injures skin-cell DNA, forcing your cells’ “clock genes” out of sync. Normal, healthy clock genes are coordinated on a repair and protection schedule to keep your skin guarded during the day; DNA damage compromises their synchronization timetable, resulting in more lines, wrinkles and age spots. Nightly use of Advanced Night Repair reestablishes the DNA synchronization and the repair process.
Afterward play up your new glowing skin with Estée Lauder’s TurboLash mascara ($32) with a vibrating brush that adds volume, curl and length. If you’re in a celebratory mood, TurboLash comes in limited-edition sparkling gold ($32) for the holidays. While you’re at it, brush on the Opulent Gold Shimmer Powder ($32), too.
