Top Ways to Revitalize Your Skin for Spring with Clarins

Want to know a few things you can start doing today to revitalize your skin for spring? I'm sure you're already doing some of these, but maybe not on a consistent basis. Say goodbye to dull skin and hello to hydration with a few easy changes and some fabulous products from Clarins. Here's what you can do to make your dull skin glow this season.

Revive Your Eyes

The skin around our eyes is very delicate. It's very easy to see the signs of aging simply by looking at the eyes. That's why it's important to protect that skin. Have you heard of the Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask by Clarins? It instantly revives tired-looking eyes to create a rested effect in the form of a cooling cream-gel hydrating mask. Do you have 10 minutes to spare while making dinner? That's a great time to apply the gel as an express mask. I like to put it on while I'm reading a magazine article or watching videos on YouTube.
If you're looking to get the full effect of the Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask, then leave it on overnight to revitalize your eyes while you sleep. In just a few uses, you'll be able to visibly minimize wrinkles, dark circles, fine lines and other signs of dehydration.

More Water, Less Caffeine

We've all heard it a thousand times -- drink more water. Water does wonders for what goes on inside your body and also with your skin. Keep your complexion looking smooth by replacing caffeinated drinks and alcohol with 64 ounces of water. Although I do drink a chai latte every morning, I also have a 24-ounce water bottle that I refill three times a day to get my required intake. Every time you get up or look away from your computer, take a sip of water.

Replenish Your Lips

As with your eyes, your lips are also sensitive and easily react when they're under-moisturized. I'm sure we've all experienced cracked lips in the winter. Since I suffer from dry skin year round, I am actually quite adamant when it comes to keeping the skin on my lips moisturized. Usually you can find me re-applying lip balm multiple times a day. One reason is because my lips need the moisture. But another reason is because I need a product that lasts. That's why I'm happy to add the Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm by Clarins to my lip routine this spring.
This quenching balm uses soothing Blue Lotus Essential Wax to keep my lips soft and smooth. And when your lips are softer, they also look visibly plumper. And the Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm nourishes my dry, delicate lip skin and works in all environments. Less re-applying and more moisture makes me a happy camper.

Highlighter: Get Into It

Good skin care is obviously key when it comes to a good makeup look. But one way to really make your skin glow is by applying a good highlighter. If you have normal or dry skin (like me) then it's best to use a cream-based highlighter. If you have an oily complexion, then try a powder highlighter instead. I get the best results when I apply highlighter on my cheekbones and the tip of my nose. A little glow goes a long way.

Keep It Silky

Hydrating the skin on your face is awesome, but you should also remember to hydrate the skin on the rest of your body as well. First I use a moisturizing body wash in the shower, and then I like to add a lotion and body oil combination right after. Lotions are great for adding moisture, but a body oil can really allow your skin to absorb that moisture. I also include the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream for all-day hydration that shields my skin from the dehydrating effects of temperature changes, pollutants and stressors.

Sleep Is Your Friend

I always like to bring up that I never cared much about sleeping when I was a kid. It just felt like a boring waste of time. But when I became an adult, especially now in my 30s, sleep is my best friend. I just love how a full night's rest makes me feel. And the thing is, my skin loves it, too! While you sleep, skin cells turn over and your body boosts blood flow so that you wake up with a dewy glow. This keeps your complexion from looking drab.
