Jennifer Aniston turns 52 next month, yet her skin has never looked more youthful, thanks to Swisscode Pure Hyaluron (£90 for 15ml, pureskinboutique.net).

The super serum, which is a huge hit with Hollywood stars, contains a high concentration of clinical-grade hyaluronic acid, leaving skin plumped up and radiant. It works quickly, increasing moisture levels by 20 per cent in less than two hours, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, too.

CAN I STOP MY SCREEN GIVING ME WRINKLES? 

Yes, you should be able to, according to Dr Bibi Ghalaie, the medical director of the British Aesthetics clinic.

‘With so many of us working from home, the “Zoom boom” has led to an increased amount of time on our phones and computers, which can cause the eyes to strain. This can cause fine lines and wrinkles,’ she explains. ‘Use a moisturiser that protects against ageing HEV light (emitted by our devices) for maximum protection.’

SHAMELESS INDULGENCE 

 

Acqua Di Parma’s colourful limited-edition Mirto de Panarea, (£52 for 30ml, or £82 for 75ml, selfridges.com), from the Blu Mediterraneo collection, is a fabulously uplifting scent. 

The fragrance opens with warm, bright notes of lemon, bergamot, myrtle and basil, while the heart of sea breeze, jasmine and rose complements the base of juniper, cedar wood and amber. It’s designed to evoke the character of Panarea, the smallest and oldest of the Aeolian islands, where the air is heavy with the aroma of myrtle.

The multi-layered fragrance develops into a fresh yet comforting scent which will lift your spirits and inject a dose of optimism into this dreary January.
