A seasonal transition is always a good time to change up your skincare regime – particularly when we move from the milder months into the chill of autumn and winter.
We need to ensure our skin is, not only toned, moisturised and hydrated, we need to make sure it’s protected – as, we might be surprised to hear, that that sun does still slip through those clouds.
As we fall into the cooler months, we’ve been in search of the ultimate luxe skincare regime. Cue elline Switzerland…

24k Lifting Serum
Overview: Just one drop of ‘Treasures of Youth’ 24k Lifting Serum releases the incomparable vitality of eternal youth. As soon as it touches your skin, the precious anti-aging active ingredient complex of spherical gold crystals, precious hyaluronic acid and multi-activating cell receptors unfolds, causing an extraordinary regeneration of the deeper skin layer. When a single gold particle reaches the cell, hundreds of hyaluronic acid molecules enter the cell simultaneously and stimulate the production of collagen and the body’s own hyaluronic acid. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections, leaving only your inimitable radiance. Integrated 24-karat gold crystals make the ‘Treasures of Youth’ 24k Lifting Serum the highlight of the collection.
