10 questions with Elizabeth Arden

Question: What age you should start to think about using anti-ageing skincare? And what products would you recommend?
Answer:

From our mid 20’s we start losing 1% collagen per year so that time would be perfect to start using products to protect skin against ageing. We recommend Prevage City Smart with SPF 50 and Retinol Ceramide Capsules.

Question: What do you recommend for under eye circles?
Answer:

Try using our Prevage Eye Serum – it’s amazing for under eye circles – it’s got a surgical steel tip which is always cold so makes it super refreshing on the skin.

Question: I already love your Ceramide Capsules and am very interested in trying the new Retinol version - can I use both together and when should I use each one?
Answer:

We recommend to use Ceramide Capsules in the day, Retinol Capsules at night – so you can definitely use them both as part of your day to night regime! Make sure you wear a moisturiser with an SPF in the day!

Question: How do I maintain the glow in my skin throughout the day when working in a dry office environment?
Answer:

It’s a good idea to have Ceramide Youth Restoring Capsules (Warm the contents on 1 capsule in your hands & apply to your face – watch the glow come back to your skin!) and Eight Hour Hydrating Mist (Refresh & protect your skin!) on your desk at all times! You can use both of these throughout the day.

Question: I have eczema; what would be a good anti-wrinkle cream or serum for me?
Answer:

When you have eczema, you have to be super careful with what skincare you use – we would always advise going to your GP first. Ceramide Youth Restoring Capsules and our Superstart range could work really well for you – but please pass them by your GP first.

Question: What makes retinol good for anti-ageing?
Answer:

Retinol Ceramide Capsules supports the natural collagen and elastane production & makes your skin act younger than it is! It’s all about preventing so starting around your mid-20’s is the perfect time to start.

Question: I’ve seen you’ve brought out a new retinol product! What makes it different from all the other retinol products out there? There’s so many, I don’t know which to choose.
Answer:

Retinol is super sensitive to oxygen and light – our Retinol Ceramide Capsules are encapsulated which keeps the formula protected – it also included Ceramides and Avocado Oil, which acts as a buffer to the Retinol. They are gentle and the perfect dose! (Fab for travelling!).

Question: What is the best treatment for large pores?
Answer:

Try using Prevage Detox Mask once or twice a week to take that pollution off the skin – it will also help decrease the size of your pores.

Question: I’m thinking of trying the Eight Hour range! What are the main benefits on the skin?
Answer:

It’s a repairing product line – for example, Eight Hour Skin Protectant will repair & protect the skin. It’s one of our amazing multi-tasking products that has become a cult beauty product within the industry.

Question: I get really dry lips from wearing matte lipstick - is there anything I can do to help prevent this?
Answer:

We recommend using our Eight Hour Skin Protectant as a mask – leave a thick layer on for 10 minutes and then wipe away excess with a cotton bud. Then, for whilst you travel, keep your lips moisturised on-the-go with Eight Hour Lip Protectant Stick.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
