You should be using this day cream all day, all year—here’s why

Living in the city can be tough on the skin. In addition to the scorching heat of Malaysia’s climate, the constant barrage of pollutants disrupts the skin’s natural defence processes and contributes to premature ageing.

Fine lines, dullness and loss of firmness are just the beginning. Said to be responsible for 80 per cent of skin ageing, these environmental stressors have a gradual cumulative effect on the skin (basically, they cause the signs of ageing to manifest in the complexion over time). It all sounds a bit bleak, but don’t fret just yet—fortunately, there’s a catch-all product that addresses these aggressors from both a preventative and proactive strategy.



First launched in 2005, All Day All Year was a revelation in the world of anti-ageing skincare. Today, its updated best-selling formula is even more powerful than before, serving to push the boundaries of anti-ageing innovation even further. It’s packed with scientifically-backed “smart” actives that address the exposome—all the internal and environmental factors that a person is exposed to over the course of their lifetime—through a comprehensive defence strategy.

There are two components through which All Day All Year works: The physical shield and the biological shield. The physical shield works at a surface level, creating a barrier that prevents aggressors from penetrating the skin. It has three mechanisms of protection: enhanced UVA and UVB protection from encapsulated filters, anti-adherence technology from marshmallow polysaccharides, and the neutralisation of heavy metals through myrtle extract. Put simply, it inhibits the effect of any environmental stressors at the source.

The biological shield, on the other hand, works on a much deeper level. Its mechanisms of action target the skin’s intrinsic self-defence capabilities, strengthening it more and more, day after day. This shield protects the skin by both limiting the effect of any aggressors and stimulating the skin’s natural defence system. 

Specifically, sesame seed extract and dandelion extract work together to prevent the deep penetration of external aggressors as well as limit their dispersion in the skin, reducing the risk of oxidative stress. Further, Sophora Japonica extract helps to reactivate the skin’s natural defence system, allowing it to better protect itself. Finally, adenosine and white willow leaf extract are anti-ageing powerhouses that restore the skin’s beauty. Over time, the complexion not only looks better, but is actually stronger and more resilient.
