MY FAVOURITE PRODUCTS: SERUM-IN-OIL AND CREAM-IN-OIL
I discovered these two products this winter, and now use them as part of my daily skincare routine. Serum-In-Oil hydrates like oil, but has the texture and efficacy of serum. This product provided just the treatment I needed to repair my skin, especially after a terrible flu damaged the area around my nostrils It actually works—believe me!
Whether I’m in the city, countryside- or even playing my favourite sports, the nutritive and repairing Cream-In-Oil is the perfect treatment to protect my skin from the elements. It is ideal for both dry and normal skin types, which require additional protection during the cold season. The cream’s soothing honey-like texture is made with a key ingredient; Marine Connectum, a sea sugar used to reconstruct the skin. It’s like candy for your skin!
LIFE PLANKTON ESSENCE
Life Plankton Essence was my biggest find of the season. As you may know, marine microorganisms such as algae and plankton have a particular affinity to our skin (which consists of 70% saline water, similar to oceans). The plankton is reproduced in Biotherm’s laboratories, so there is no impact on the oceans. This lightweight cosmetic water, which works incredibly from the moment you apply it. Use your hands to apply a few drops to your face (even around the eyes) before applying the serum and the day or night cream. Skin quickly feels softer, brighter and smoother. If this is the first time you hear the term cosmetic water, that’s because it’s quite new here, but it’s all the rage in Asia!
THE MASK FOR ME
My skin needs serious hydration. On nights before photoshoots, I make sure to deep-clean my face and apply the healing overnight Life Plankton Mask before bed. I use it twice a week. What’s more, the masks transparency leaves room for bedroom magic. Experience the sensational effects of the Life Plankton Mask, while your partner is none the wiser. Now there’s a win-win!
ANTI-AGING THERAPY: TREAT YOURSELF
It takes some wisdom to accept that 20% of the signs of ageing are inevitable.
The remaining 80% are further aggravated by smoking, sunlight and extreme temperatures (like harsh Quebec winters). We must learn to fight these signs carefully, and show our skin the love and attention it deserves.
