There are 2 types of aging: natural or genetic aging and extrinsic aging, which is caused by harmful environmental stressors (stress, lifestyle, pollution, sun, tobacco use, unbalanced diet…). The latter represents the majority of overall aging; it is important to take care of your skin even before the first signs of aging appear.
It is essential to follow the three steps for beautiful skin (cleansing, hydrating, protecting) and to always use skincare products appropriate for your age, skin type, and skin state.
Before age 30
At this age, the skin is generally in peak condition and heals itself very well and the three essential steps suffice for having and maintaining beautiful skin: cleansing, hydrating, and protecting.
Regular cleansing allows you to remove impurities and makeup from your skin, unclog pores, and tone skin to prepare it to absorb the skincare products you subsequently apply. Cleansing may be done quickly, with a 3-in-1 product like the Eau Efficace , but it should never be overlooked.
In order to maintain your skin’s suppleness and natural radiance while preventing the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration, take care to hydrate skin well each morning and night with an appropriate skincare product.
To preserve the youthful appearance of the eye contour, you may apply the Botanical Eye and Lip Contour Balm each morning and night in order to hydrate, smooth, and reduce puffiness.
Finally, to maintain younger looking skin for a longer period of time, it is essential that you apply a specific “anti-aging shield”, such as All Day All Year ,year round. All Day All Year will help your skin combat the harmful environmental stressors it encounters daily. You must use a product specifically designed as a sun care product with appropriate UVA and UVB protection when exposed to the sun.
Between 30 and 40 years of age
Most lead very active lives between the ages of 30 and 40. Nights are shorter, the skin is less rested, and fatigue sets in. The first signs of aging (such as the first wrinkles and a loss of radiance) appear. Beyond your daily cleansing and hydrating skincare products, it is imperative to begin to use specific skincare products.
The most important of these skincare products is one designed for the eye contour, such as the Botanical Eye and Lip Contour Balm , which hydrates, smoothes, and fights eye-puffiness. You may also choose an eye contour skincare product with specific actions, such as the Botanical Eye and Lip Contour Complex which reduces the first signs of aging. If there is a need, we may recommend an intensive anti-aging treatment for the eye contour, such as the , at a later stage.
As soon as you reach your thirties, it is recommended that you use skincare products that target the first signs of aging, such as the Intensive Day Cream with botanical extracts for the day and the Intensive Night Cream at night. They may be used in conjunction with a hydrating skincare product with anti-aging properties, such as Hydra-Global . These skincare products will be substituted for a more intensive, global skincare product such as day and night cream at a later stage.It is recommended that you use a scrub and a mask regularly in function with your skin’s needs.

Between 40 and 50 years of age
Women in their forties today are active and fit. They want their skin to reflect how young they feel on the inside, but this is the age when signs of fatigue and wrinkles begin to set in. The skin becomes dryer and begins to lose its firmness. The first dark spots may appear on skin that has been exposed to sun without appropriate protection.
In order to round out the basic and specific skincare products women of this age are already using, it is recommended that skin be provided with targeted supplementary skincare products.

Sisley offers three targeted anti-aging serums that allow you to treat wrinkles, loss of radiance, and loss of firmness: , Sisleÿa Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate , and Sisleÿa Global Firming Serum .
Several times a year, a nighttime detoxifying and stimulating treatment lasting 4 weeks, such as Botanical D-Tox , may be used to awaken a dull complexion and stimulate the skin’s natural defenses.
Weekly scrubs and masks become essential for stimulating the skin and supplementing your daily skincare products’ action. After removing dead skin cells with the or the , you should apply an intensely hydrating, radiance enhancing, or radiance and anti-aging mask such as Hydra Hydra-Flash , Radiant Glow Express Mask , or the Black Rose Cream Mask .
After age 50
At this age, the skin begins to lose firmness more rapidly, particularly during menopause. The skin continues to dry out, its mechanisms slow down, and it heals itself more slowly.
In order to treat all the signs of aging simultaneously, it is recommended that you use global anti-aging products, like .
In addition to your daily-use anti-aging skincare products, you should use targeted anti-aging serums, such as , Sisleÿa Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate , and Sisleÿa Global Firming Serum . It is also recommended that you use treatments that restart the skin’s mechanisms, such as Sisleÿa-Elixir .

It is recommended that you use a scrub and a mask regularly according to your needs.
Protection against UVA and UVB rays must be reinforced, whether you’re on vacation or just around town, as not to increase skin loosening, wrinkles, and brown spots.
