Sisley just launched the latest iteration of its bestselling serum. Dubbed ‘All Day All Year’, the new drop provides a comprehensive, dual-purpose shield against UV rays and pollution through potent plant-based actives, making it the perfect urban companion for any skincare enthusiast.
Long before the beauty industry delved into the effects of urban living on skin, French luxury skincare brand Sisley was already creating anti-pollution formulations. In 2005, it pioneered the All Day All Year serum, the first anti-ageing shield against external aggressors that hinder cell renewal and trigger premature ageing.
Now, 17 years later, the global bestseller enters a new chapter founded on Sisley’s latest research and innovations led by smart active ingredients. The updated formulation features a cocktail of powerful plant extracts that boosts skin’s self-defence capabilities against UV exposure and pollution.
Skin ageing can be caused by numerous factors, but the bulk of it is due to external stressors – namely UV exposure and urban pollution. To counter this, the All Day All Year fortifies the skin barrier through two types of shields: physical and biological.
The former offers lasting protection of the skin surface through three key mechanisms, including blocking UVA and UVB rays that can cause wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. As a physical shield, it offers daily continuous protection. It can work up to eight hours, safeguarding skin cells before harmful external elements are able to alter and subsequently damage them.
This shield also uses encapsulated UVA and UVB filters to block UV radiation from the sun, thereby limiting oxidative stress on the skin. These filters offer all-day and stable photo protection, and have been optimised to ensure their effectiveness.
With pollution levels rising at an alarming rate, there is a pressing need to scale up skin’s natural defence system. While environmental pollutants may not visibly affect skin, over time, the accumulation of damage can affect skin’s hydration levels, and cause skin to sag and appear dull.
The All Day All Year acts as a biological shield to protect skin within its deepest layers. Four mechanisms of protection limit free radicals while also stimulating the cells’ ability to self-protect. Meanwhile, ingredients such as adenosine and white willow leaf extract restore skin with powerful anti-ageing properties as well as soothe and fight inflammation.
With both shields, the skin first assesses the external aggressors before it activates the formula’s protection mechanisms to fight them. A total of seven protection mechanisms, or smart active ingredients, activate when they detect the tiniest biological changes in skin, delivering exactly what it needs.
Together, the dual shields help skin fight harmful elements from UV rays and pollution, recover from potential damage and prevent accelerated ageing. Skin stays youthful, even-toned and radiant.
Soft and silky, the All Day All Year has a pleasant scent of sage, marjoram and juniper berries. Use it to seal in all the goodness from your skincare routine or as a makeup primer with a matte finish. It now comes in a recyclable glass bottle with an inner pouch that retracts as the product is used and can be detached once finished.
The All Day All Year is available at all Sisley counters and stores. Visit Sisley for more information.
