Chanel’s latest beauty offering works on the premise that all skin can do with a bit of help during the night, as it works to renew and regenerate itself. This is particularly true of the neck and décolletage, which require extra attention since the skin is so thin in these areas and more susceptible to the effects of gravity while the body is in a reclining position. In response, Chanel has created a new addition to its anti-wrinkle range: Le Lift Skin Recovery Sleep Mask.

At the heart of all Le Lift products is 3.5-DA, an ingredient developed exclusively for Chanel, based on patented technology. The ingredient is the result of 12 years of research and, according to Chanel, works by inhibiting certain microRNAs molecules responsible for skin ageing, while enhancing the production of “youth” proteins such as p63 and Sirtuin 1. This, in turn, is reported to create an environment that encourages the proper development of fibroblasts and helps improve their tightness. Silk proteins are also incorporated into the formula to promote softer, plumper-looking skin.

The cream is meant to be used two to three times a week. Apply a thin layer to the face using this massage technique, which has been developed specially by Chanel:

Step 1 (to stimulate and reactivate):

Perform pinched circular motions using your fingertips. Repeat three times on the following areas:

Jawline: from the point of the chin outwards.

Cheeks: from the corner of the lips to the earlobes. Then, from outside the nostrils to the temples.

Forehead: from the middle of the forehead to the temples.

Neck: first from under the chin to the jaw angle, then down the neck to the clavicles.

Décolletage: from the middle of the décolletage to the outer sides, covering the whole area.

Step 2: (to relax and soothe)

Perform encircling, smoothing motions with the hands, from the centre of the face out towards the cheeks and chin, then up to the forehead, finishing on the temples. Continue under the chin to the earlobes, and down along the neck and décolletage.
