Dr Sebagh and MZ Skin: doctor-led skincare

the Antidote to... products without scientific know-how

Formulated by Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh, cosmetic doctor and ‘ageing-maintenance’ skincare pioneer, these products are a prescription for good skin. Rose de Vie Cream Cleanser (£32 for 100ml), infused with mineral-rich spring water from Brittany, pumpkin seed extract and apricot oil, gently nourishes and protects the face against pollution; for intensive hydration, try the Rose de Vie Hydrating Mask (£74 for 100ml) with watermelon, iris and rose extracts and vitamin C. The handy-sized tube is ideal for a post-flight skin pick me up. Available online

Doctor Maryam Zamani runs clinics at Chelsea’s state-of-the-art Cadogan Aesthetic Clinic and was awarded ‘Best for Eyes’ by Tatler. Her MZ range combines clinical know-how with high-performance ingredients. Cleanse & Clarify is an excellent, dual action AHA cleanser and mask (£56). Her Rest & Revive Restorative Placental Stem Cell Night Serum (£195) gives a skin overhaul – silky to use, with gene reactivating ingredients, clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth over 30 days. Available at Harrods.
