As all modern working mums can attest, the pressure is on to attain success in their careers, be a great caregiver for their children, and stay looking fresh-faced through it all despite the overwhelming day-to-day stresses. Having just given birth to her second son Andersen earlier in May, socialite Marie Zhuge looks absolutely radiant — showing that it’s possible to achieve all three blessings in life.

A longtime customer of Sisley skincare herself, Zhuge recently collaborated with the brand as their new video campaign star, introducing her tried-and-true Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge range (click here to watch). In the video, Zhuge attributes her devotion to the line to the effective science that works to optimise and lengthen cell life cycles. “Aside from genetic and environmental disruptions, stress that comes from living in the city and having unhealthy habits all contribute to the quickening process of ageing. I trust Sisleÿa’s scientific formulas, which cover all bases of skin ageing, helping to restore youthful, firm skin.”

Marie Zhuge has been a longtime fan of Sisleÿa's anti-ageing range.

Based on Nobel Prize-winning findings on behavioural ageing, where an unhealthy pace of life has been shown to exacerbate rapid cell death, Sisley identified three dimensions of ageing to target — genetic, environmental and behavioural factors. The brand launched its revolutionary Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge range in 2016 working to regenerate and extend cellular life cycles across these three fronts.

Harnessing a combination of key active ingredients derived from plants such as Persian Acacia and Lindera, the Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge line allows women to work smartly in their busy schedules with three key potent signature products: The Eye and Lip Contour Cream, the Anti-Wrinkle Concentrated Serum and the Face Cream.

The Eye and Lip Contour Cream rehydrates the areas around the lips and around the eyes most vulnerable to fine lines. Containing anti-glycation and anti-oxidation properties, the cream also helps eliminate the bluish, brown pigments that cause dark circles under the eyes.

The new Anti-Wrinkle Concentrated Serum features ingredients such as porcelain cacao extract, which wakes up our collagen synthesis function — normally dampened due to negative behavioural factors. As such, the serum helps achieve visibly smoother and lifted skin, with tests showing significant reduction in all types of wrinkles caused by dehydration, expression and ageing.

The core, unmissable star of the anti-ageing range is of course the Face Cream. Containing over 50 active ingredients, the lush cream works to restore cellular rhythm, as well as boost cell energy and cell longevity so that the skin is more plump and firm, and retains a youthful glow. If you’re looking for a larger dose of hydration, the Extra Rich version offers a creamy, comforting texture for dry to very dry skin.

When it comes to combating behavioural ageing, a healthy routine of self care and a healthful mindset is a must — as Marie Zhuge so proves with her luminous skin and fit figure postpartum, which she credits to her routine, clean diet and exercise throughout her pregnancy.

What better way to ground yourself than having a regular skincare routine? The complete Sisleÿa skincare routine starts with the Essential Skin Care Lotion, to tone and prepare the skin for better absorption. Then, smooth the Eye and Lip Contour Cream over the delicate areas around the eyes and lips, before applying 2-3 pumps of the Anti-Wrinkle Concentrated Serum on your face, neck and décolleté. If you’re looking for an intensive skin-renewing boost, you’ll want to crack open a vial of Sisleÿa-Elixir here. Finish off with the signature Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge Face Cream or the Anti-Âge Extra Rich to complete the perfect anti-ageing ritual.

Like Marie Zhuge, busy women everywhere can most definitely attain glowy, enviable youthfulness no matter what life throws at them. Whether it’s unhealthy habits or a hectic work schedule, gorgeous skin can be simply achieved when stressors are dealt with at the cellular level.
