It’s cold and dry in the winter, and sometimes it feels like your skin just wants to peel off your face and run away from your body. Getting a good skincare system down is vital when braving the harsh cold, and Clarins has a great “layering” system to make you feel hydrated, refreshed and back to your old self.
After cleansing the face, start with a light layer of the Hydraquench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase ($70) which contains two Clarins Exclusive ingredients: Katafray Bark and Hyaluronic Acid Comple –both vital for skin hydration. Top off your face with a layer of the HydraQuench Cream ($49.50). Be sure to rub the product between your hands to warm the product before applying (it helps with absorption).
Don’t forget to moisturize lips with HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm ($24), which is packed full of moisture-protecting ingredients such as Essential Rose Wax and Natural Rice Oil.
And if your skin still feels like the Sahara, take the night off for an at-home spa treatment and try their HydraQuench Cream-Mask ($36), which provides intensive relief for dry skin. Slather up skin with the mask, leave it on for five to ten minutes, then no need to wash off. This formula is gentle enough to be used in the eye contour area, too!
All Clarins products are currently available now at department stores, fine specialty stores and Clarins.com.
