Sisley’s Blueprint For Better Skin
Just as a building can suffer the effects of time, causing its foundation (or roof, as is the case with my Brooklyn pre-war) to start slowly crumbling, so too can your skin. The terrifying term for this downward spiral is “slackening”—and it is precisely as unappealing as it sounds. Skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity and tautness, leading to a lack of structure and contouring in the face. As far as Sisley is concerned, though, you can change the course of this grim trajectory. Its new Global Firming Serum aims to restore the architecture of the face with a potent cocktail of extracts—elastin-stimulating dill, plumping tiger nut, gravity-defying rye, and surface-smoothing oat seed, among others. It also happens to feel pretty great. The velvety consistency, while slightly heavier than a traditional serum, still absorbs seamlessly into the skin so it won’t fight with your makeup. Consider it a structurally sound antiaging solution.
