—anne marie guarnieri
For saggy skin: Guerlain Orchidée Impériale eye and lip cream
The star ingredient of this line is orchid extract, said to be effective in encouraging cell growth. That cellular breakdown is what causes the contours of the eyes and lips to sag ($192). Neiman Marcus, Copley Place
For fine lines: Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Crème
If your antiaging routine doesn’t yet include needles, this might hold you over in the meantime: It contains the typographically tricky BoNt-L, a hexapeptide with Botox-like qualities ($110). Sephora, The Shops at Purdential Center
For dull skin: Sue Devitt Microquatic Bioluminescence Illuminating Serum
Give tired skin a natural glow and improved tone with this serum, which contains moisture-restoring hyaluronic acid and light-refracting microspheres ($65). Ulta, 1286 Worcester St., Natick; ulta.com
For stressed skin: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer Kit
Forced-air heat, super-hot showers, too many cocktails: These can dry the heck out of your skin. This Kiehl's kit helps you restore balance with a cleanser, toner and a must-have (even when it’s dark at 4 pm) sunscreen ($29.50). 112 Newbury St.
For aging skin: Chanel Sublimage La Crème
The latest addition to the Sublimage family is packed with Vanilla planifolia. Chanel isolates the active ingredients in both the pod and the flowers to give this rich, sumptuous antiaging cream its power (available in March, $390). 5 Newbury St.
