When it comes to winter, I have a love-hate relationship with the season. I love how my neighborhood looks picturesque covered in a blanket of snow. I love getting together with friends for a mean snowball fight. I love walking down the street and feeling the crunch of yesterday’s snow under my feet. What I don’t love is how dry and tight my skin feels just from spending a few minutes outdoors.
I have said this before, skincare is very important to me. After all, you only have one face so you’d better take care of it. When it comes to winter, hydration is essential. If you follow me on Instagram story or on Snapchat, you will notice that I always make sure my skin is hydrated and taken care of before I apply any makeup.
Recently Clarins launched their newest line that goes beyond hydrating your skin – it super quenches your skin by protecting it from the sudden temperature changes it’s exposed to and leaves it looking radiant. Between going to my Pilates class, seeking shelter at numerous coffee shops in the city, and attending numerous events, my skin is constantly exposed to thermic shocks, sudden temperature changes and humidity, and constantly taxing my skin’s hydration. Basically, my skin gets super thirsty and has difficulty retaining any moisture for all day hydration. The new Hydra-Essential line is exactly what I need to protect my skin and boost its ability to retain moisture throughout the day.
The dynamic duo…
Clarins Hydra-Essential Bi-phase Serum – this lightweight serum is just the thing your skin needs to protect it from dehydration and the daily effects of thermic shock. After a few days of using this serum, I noticed the areas around my eyes, lips and cheeks looking plump, radiant and hydrated.
Clarins Hydra-Essential Silky Cream – this luxurious silky cream is exactly what my your skin needs to lock in the serum and keep it quenched throughout the day. After a few days, I noticed a decrease in fine lines and tightness around my forehead, cheeks and the area near my eyes.
