Don’t let skin aging get you down!

SAY YES TO A LONG-LASTING BEAUTY

Does your skin ever feel bogged down by heavy pollution? That’s no coincidence - environmental factors have been shown to cause visible aging. And with more than half of us residing in cities, pollution has become a pressing problem. It generates free-radicals, molecules that can cause wrinkles, dark spots and dry skin. But don’t worry! An urban lifestyle doesn’t have to dull your glow, or speed up the aging process. A simple daily routine is the key to long-lasting, radiant beauty.

Double the cleansing, for double the clean

Double the cleansing, for double the clean

And a happier skin that glows!

First step to protecting your skin: rigorous daily cleansing. Sure-fire way to a perfect clean: double cleansing!
 
A double-cleansing routine uses two different cleansers to target both types of impurities that can clog your pores: oil-based and water-based:
 1. Start with an oil or a balm (try our Divine Cleansing Balm) to remove oil-based impurities including sebum, sunscreen and makeup.
2. Use a water-based cleanser (like our Divine Cleansing Cream-in-Foam) to clear out water-based impurities like sweat, dirt and dead skin cells.
 
Your skin is prepared to drink up the benefits of creams and serums!

Skin-saving warriors

Our Divine Youth Oil is ultra-concentrated with the powerful extract of the Corsican Immortelle flower (10% more than before!), one of the most potent antioxidants on the market. It’s twice as effective at preventing the visible signs of aging as skin’s natural antioxydant, Vitamin E*. One drop of Divine Youth Oil is enough to see a burst of youth after just one use.

Make the most of your oils

Facial oil is one of the hardest skincare products for people to wrap their heads around, but also one of the most versatile. A good oil transforms and protects skin, forming a resilient layer known as a lipid barrier. Use it alone, or in combination with other products, like our serums and L’OCCITANE’s moisturizers, to enhance their effectiveness.

Here’s how to make the most of your oils:
- Apply one to two drops of oil between your L’OCCITANE serum and moisturizer, dabbing or patting it into your skin instead of rubbing.
- Add one drop of oil to your daily L’OCCITANE moisturizer to boost hydration.
- Use it throughout the day to give your skin a nice touch of glow.
- Give yourself a face massage on clean, dry skin, will help to improve micro-circulation.
