YOUR AM-TO-PM SKINCARE ROUTINE
By Amelia Bell, 15 March 2019
We all know the recipe for healthy-looking skin – more sleep, better skincare, plenty of superfoods – but keeping it up IRL isn’t always as easy as it sounds. That’s where My Clarins comes in. The latest plant-based skincare by the brand gives you a fresh glow thanks to a zero-fuss, anti-stress regime. And, to prove it, we’ve come up with our own speedy, easy-to-follow, morning-to-night skincare routine using its wonder products.
For those pressed for time, a hydrating moisturiser is the quickest, most effective way to kickstart your day. My Clarins’ ultra-nourishing cream works depending on your skin type, and you can choose from dry, oily (a matte-finish gel to help prevent shine) or all skin types, to help you get the most out of your moisturiser. Not only will this wake up your face come 7:30am, the skin-quenching ingredients are like a smoothie for your skin – think coconut water, fig extracts, goji berry and acerola seed extract. It'll feed your skin with all the good stuff, remove any toxins and protect against the elements.
Hit the classic 3pm slump? Time for a quick face mist spritz for a refreshing moisture boost. Infused with My Clarins' Healthy Skin In & Out complex (featuring organic coconut water and detoxifying alpenrose extract), as well as radiance-building acerola seed and fig extract, it’ll give you an instant on-the-go glow. Finally, if you have a SOS spot moment during the day, the CLEAR-OUT blemish gel is a handy saviour to carry in your bag. It combines salicylic acid and meadowsweet extract to help with clogged pores. Win.
Time to recharge your batteries after a long day. First up, take your pick from My Clarins’ cleansing gel (to deeply purify and minimise shine) or a cleansing milk, which is ideal for sensitive skin types, to take off your makeup. The best part? There’s no need to rinse off – you can just soak up the almond fragrance and head straight to bed. But if you can manage a few extra minutes, massage an overnight mask onto your face and neck – it'll do all the hard work for you, so you can wake up to skin that looks well-rested and ready to take on the day.
