The Skincare Range For Busy Women

Prev1 of 3

When I discovered that the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel range caters to the rigours of daily life, I was intrigued.

A little bit of background: I have sensitive and combination skin. Moreover, it’s dry on the inside, but oily on the outside. The skin on my cheeks have peeled when my T-zone looked like an oil slick. Naturally, balancing all these concerns is a pain.

Clarins Research’s solution to dehydration, in our humid climate, is the essence of life and skin beauty: water. That’s because our packed schedules mean we move often from air-conditioned room to sunny outdoors, and back again.

These sudden changes in temperature and humidity cause our skin to weather up to 17 thermal shocks a day! This manifests as rough and uncomfortable skin with visible redness, as well as a reduction in water-retaining ‘sponge molecules’. In short, it’s the recipe for a parched and dull complexion.
