If you were thinking that your fast-paced city lifestyle is ageing your skin more quickly, you were right. YSL Beauty has the research to prove that all those late nights, long hours at work, a hectic social life and constant travel coupled with UV rays and pollution accelerate skin ageing by 30 percent. But it’s not all bad news. The French beauty brand has come up with a solution: Pure Shots, a skincare range combining science and potent botanicals – in particular those grown in YSL Beauty’s very own Ourika Gardens in Morocco – to correct all signs of an urban lifestyle.

So what can you expect from the comprehensive line-up? There’s the Hydra Bounce Essence-In-Lotion (SGD99) that is brimming with vitamins to improve hydration and preps skin better to receive the products applied after, and the Perfect Plumper Cream (SGD169) to soothe and bring bounce to the complexion, all while fighting signs of ageing.
For those who love to layer serums, there are also 4 options (SGD139 each, for 30 ml) to choose from. These include Lines Away with a potent cocktail of iris and hyaluronic acid to plump skin and reduce winkles, Light Up with marshmallow and Vitamin C to banish production of dark spot-causing melanin, Y Shape in a micro-emulsion to deliver firming peptides deep into skin for an instant firming effect, and finally Night Reboot that maximises skin regeneration to instantly reduce signs of skin fatigue by morning.
If there is one product you should add to your skincare routine in 2020, it’s the Night Reboot Serum that’s like beauty sleep in a bottle. While it might be worth picking a targeted serum, this one-shot quick fix will help you fake a good night’s rest with smoother and brighter skin when you awake, no matter how sleep-deprived you are.
The powerhouse is brimming with moonlight cactus, which blooms for only 6 hours every year, to regenerate skin cells and protect them against oxidative stress. And because there’s also glycolic acid that exfoliates and renews for a smoother complexion, you’ll want to use sun protection the morning after. It is also worth noting that the serum’s unique bi-phase formula requires a good shake before you dispense two pumps for your nightly skin reboot.
The Pure Shots skincare collection is now available at YSL Beauty boutiques and counters islandwide, so you know what to do if you want to start the decade by bringing out the best in your skin.
