Refresh Your Skin With Clarins’ New Creams
A great beauty routine always starts from the base — with great skincare. If you don’t take proper care of your skin, it will show, and makeup can only do so much. No matter your skin type (dry, oily, prone to breakouts, etc.), using the right products can really make a difference.
Some people’s skincare routine consists of simply using one or two products or just cleansing once a day, while others may have a variety of products they use on a daily basis. Even if your approach is more minimal, it is important to pay attention to how and when you use your products. During the day, skin is exposed to a number of damaging factors, such as the sun or even your makeup. At night the skin restores and renews itself. Because your skin has different needs during the day and at night, it is not always sufficient to use the same product for everything.
Use a lighter cream formula during the day so skin doesn’t feel greasy under makeup. At night, you should be using a cream with restorative properties. Clarins’ new Multi-Active Jour and Multi-Active Nuit creams are great for targeting many skin issues, and both have anti-aging properties.
Clarins is a beauty supplier out of Paris that offers a number of skincare products. From cleansers to moisturizers and serums, the brand offers everything you might need for your skincare. Their day and night creams are a great product to use if you want to ramp up your skin care and see clearer skin with fewer lines. Over 30 years ago, Clarins released the original multi-active line. The company recently launched the fifth generation of the line, which includes several additions to the creams.
The new formulas each contain teasel extracts, which revitalize the skin by targeting damage. The Multi-Active Jour ($53/1.7 fl. oz.) day cream can be used at any time of the day, but I like to apply it as a moisturizer before I put on my makeup in the morning. The cream leaves my skin hydrated and glowing throughout the day, thanks to the addition of Myrothamnus plant extract, which counteracts the effects of daytime stress and makes skin appear more radiant. Apply the night cream after you wash off your makeup, before you go to bed. The Multi-Active Nuit ($56/1.7 fl. oz.) contains organic California poppy extract, which helps to smooth and tone the skin. The cream is light, and while many night creams can leave my face feeling greasy in the morning, this product absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel refreshed every morning.
These creams are targeted mainly at women over 30, but their properties can be beneficial at any age. Both the day and night creams are moisturizing and leave skin feeling hydrated day and night — great for people who want a moisturizing product that isn’t too greasy and won’t cause breakouts. Even women as early as their 20s can start preventative skin care to reduce fine lines forming in the future due to aging, stress or environmental factors. Clarins’ new creams have rightfully earned their place as my daily and nightly moisturizers, and are a great addition to anyone’s skin care collection.
