How do you hydrate dry skin?
Your body needs quenching!
Don’t let it get dry, flaky or dehydrated. The human body is mostly made of water (about 55% for women and closer to 60% for men), so it needs to hydrate. Exercise, perspiration, external factors like pollution, sun, and cold rob it of water. Like a plant that needs water to feed itself and grow, we must give our bodies a way to regenerate and recharge every day. We should all pay attention to how much moisture our bodies need depending on age and body type. Many of us use a moisturiser every day on our face. But your entire body wants the same comforting treatment and hydration!
Take the time to pamper it with one of the Clarins moisturising products for skin that’s soft, smooth and perfectly hydrated. Always remember to exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells, tone with Clarins oils, and follow the instructions from our beauty experts on applying and massaging them in. This will help reduce water retention, which gives your skin that unsightly scaly appearance. Exercise, hydrate, and eat well. Give your body all the moisture and nourishment it needs. Strike the balance that's right for your skin. Your body will look and feel the peak of health!
Once or twice a week in the shower, take some time to scrub off dead skin cells and impurities with Clarins Tonic Body Polisher. This exfoliating cream with rosemary, rosewood and mint essential oils tones, stimulates and revives all skin types. It's formulated with sugar crystals that don't harm the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It envelops your skin with freshness and a wonderful sensation of well-being. Once smoother and supple, it's ready for the perfect moisture and ultimate softness. We recommend rinsing well and finishing your shower with a spray of cool water. Alternate with Exfoliating Body Scrub for velvety soft skin. This cream scrub contains bamboo powder that polishes and softens your skin. It stimulates cell renewal, firms and reduces the look of flaky skin. The formula's organic moringa extract neutralises pollution particles, while the shea butter nourishes and adds a protective layer. It scrubs away the skin’s imperfections and makes it look young again! Smooth, firm and silky to the touch–it’s like new and ready to soak in the goodness of your moisturising or firming products.
When you get out of the shower, your beautifully cleansed skin is exfoliated, soft, and free of dead surface cells, so it's prepped for the moisturising step. Clarins offers a wide range of hydrating products with luxurious textures for every type of skin. It's a true pleasure to hydrate your body every day, keep dryness at bay and nourish your skin! For anyone who loves lightweight melting textures that caress the body with lusciously silky moisture. Velvet Cleansing Milk with aloe vera extract glides on the skin as it coats it in a layer of dewy softness. The delicate scent of neroli envelops you with floral notes. Day after day, it quenches, soothes and softens your skin like honey. Gently smooth it on morning and/or night. It has a non-greasy formula that absorbs instantly so you can get dressed quickly. Moisturising your skin has never felt so luxurious. For anyone who loves the creaminess of Moisture-Rich Body Lotion, Clarins cleverly combined ultra‑nourishing shea butter with peach milk extract and orange blossom wax. This super‑penetrating intense moisture provides soothing comfort. It visibly minimises the signs of aging caused by sun, cold, heating and air conditioning. Your skin is perfectly hydrated and once again firm and toned. It's silky soft without any rough patches, so caress without moderation!
It’s essential to listen to your body and what it needs. This may vary by the season or our menstrual cycle. Your skin requires different things in a cold snap than it does in a heat wave. Skin may also dry out due to factors like water that is hard or has an overly acidic pH. You can perfectly hydrate your body with Moisture-Rich Body Lotion. But to prevent dehydration, you can also moisturise every day with the nourishing essential oils in Tonic Body Balm. Formulated with a blend of soothing firming ingredients, like ginseng and appleseed oil to hydrate, revitalise and promote supple, toned skin. It has a fragrant aroma of geranium, rosewood, mint and rosemary to refresh and invigorate the body. Leaving you with a sense of wellness and hydration. Totally healthy skin that’s soft and silky! For skin that needs firming, toning and suppleness, Clarins has its signature Tonic Body Treatment Oil! This magical plant-based body oil is known for its firming and toning properties. It improves elasticity and reduces the appearance of stretch marks. Loved by pregnant women for its rosemary, geranium and mint essential oils. Hazelnut oil locks in moisture and leaves the skin satiny soft to the touch. It's a non-greasy layer that covers the body in aromatic essences and total peace of mind. Apply in the morning after your shower. For healthy-looking skin.
Hands and feet also deserve their own special creams and moisturisers specifically developed with the active ingredients they need. Your hands are constantly exposed to external stressors that can really take a toll, such as the sun, cold, and pollution. Rough, dry, dehydrated hands show early signs of aging and need special care to strengthen the skin’s barrier. Apply Clarins moisturising cream for younger-looking hands morning and night or as needed throughout the day like an invisible protective beauty glove, this cream covers the nails, palms, and backs of the hands with the goodness of nourishing sesame oil and fortifying myrrh extract. It’s like a mask that protects your hands. This pair of ultra-emollient ingredients creates an irresistibly soothing sensation for cracked and sensitive dry skin. Your hands are visibly younger-looking and age spots are reduced. It perfects nails and nourishes cuticles. Gorgeous results down to your fingertips! Be sure to use it in winter.
Your feet are too often overlooked, yet we use them every day and sometimes even at night. So why wouldn’t you treat them like queens? Even though they're hiding inside shoes most of the year, don’t wait until the nice weather at winter's end to give them special treatment and a nice beauty boost. It's more than just about making them look good. They deserve all your attention every day! Take a few minutes every morning and night to nourish and massage your feet and ankles with Foot Beauty Treatment Cream. Restore elasticity and suppleness to this skin, which is often dry or completely dried out and cracked. This cream uses arnica extract to relieve the fatigue that builds up during the day and to soothe tension. It smooths out rough spots and softens the skin with an exclusive blend of organic ingredients. Regenerate your feet with Virginia cashew nut oil and shea butter. Myrrh extract strengthens and beautifies your nails. An all-in-one nourishing and soothing treatment that comforts and hydrates tired feet. Sit back and relax to your tippy toes! Our beauty experts also have a favourite product to top off these creams. Apply some Energizing Emulsion. It refreshes and hydrates as it alleviates and instantly creates a sensation of lightness and wellness. The relaxing essential oils and natural plant‑based active ingredients envelop the skin with softness. Irresistible!
The final touch is gorgeous sun-kissed skin all year round! To boost your regular Clarins moisturiser or firming product with self-tanning action, add a few drops of Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for Body. For each area you want to make glow, mix a few drops of Golden Glow Booster self‑tanner with Velvet Cleansing Milk or Moisture‑Rich Body Lotion. It gives your body a pretty golden hue and natural tan that you can adjust to suit your skin type, tastes and whims.
