Generation 2.0

We’re always a little taken aback when such young women opt for plastic surgery (Heidi Montag and Megan Fox, we’re talking to you), especially when they’re already such beauties.


We’re of the camp that believes in the technology and research of skincare products. Since there is already a multitude of exceptional products for all our skin sins, isn’t it safe to conclude that 10, 15 or 20 years down the line, when the fine lines of aging are beginning to show, that there will be even greater achievements in skincare?

If you’re willing to wait that long (we’re not!), Guerlain has launched its Orchidee Imperiale New Generation Cream ($460 / US $400), which improves on the original formula by using an extract called the Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract. This extract stimulates the longevity gene responsible for the synthesis of an anti-inflammatory protein and protects cell DNA and cell membranes. It targets the factors that lead up to the end of cell activity, therefore keeping skin looking younger, longer.

Now that’s definitely worth the wait.

Available at The Bay and Holt Renfrew in Canada and at Neiman Marcus in the USA.
