As the cold climate sets in, warming up snuggled in front of the fireplace or heater feels great. However, the constant change in temperature can suck the moisture out of the skin, leaving it dry, unprotected and susceptible to itching and flaking. This is when I begin transitioning my skincare routine to repair and boost the moisture it needs. Enter skincare survival mode.
Hydra-Essentiel Intensive Moisture Quenching Bi-Phase Serum
This rich, concentrated serum is one of my all time favourites for nourishing skin and providing an extra layer of protection. It immediately feels fresh on the skin and brightens up my complexion, giving it a subtle glow. Not only does a little go a long way, but it doesn’t feel tacky afterward and it absorbs well. I have been applying the serum before my moisturiser to super charge and boost my skin with hydrating goodness.
Hydra-Essentiel Milky Lotion SPF 15
This nourishing milky lotion is the ultimate duo and companion for the serum. The Formula: Organic, leaf of life extract, is a powerful natural hydration activator that boosts the skin’s hyaluronic acid production. It melts into my skin and locks in moisture like no other, whilst protecting against the harmful effects of the sun (SPF 15). Under makeup, it doesn’t feel greasy or causes it to move and crease. It gives my skin a youthful softer appearance, preventing it from drying out and providing it with optimal hydration.
This cooling gel can be applied day or night in conjunction with the Bi-Phase serum. It has a refreshing texture with a matte finish making it another good base for makeup. The formula shields skin from harsh environmental influences and reactivates the skin’s self-hydrating power. I love how it gives my skin an instant fresh and calming feeling, leaving it radiant, smooth and supple.
Tidbit: Did you know that Clarins was the first brand I reviewed on Herquarters? It feels like things have come full circle (link)
