If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you may have noticed I am a bit of a skincare junkie. I truly believe in the importance of investing in your skin. We spend so much money on buying all organic and nourishing ourselves from the inside (which is the priority), but I also believe in treating topically. I believe in having a strict regimen that you follow every morning and night. Which the old me would have laughed and said NO way am I going to spend the dollars or the time doing such things. Well, until I started noticing a difference in my skin over the years and I was not too happy with how my skin looked and felt.
Some key things; proper exfoliation, antioxidants and hydration. I will write down my full year skincare regime for you soon, but for now I want to focus on one area: hydration. I lived in both NYC and Southern California this year and travel quite often for work, so my skin TRULY HATED me this year. I threw on random creams and moisturizers which in turn would just break me out and I was SO frustrated. As I am ready to embark on another NYC journey for fashion week, I am very excited to say I have tried out the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Serum and Moisturizer and I love them both equally and even more together. So far, no crazy breakouts or reactions from the formula.
With thermic shock, sudden changes in temperature and humidity, it can diminish skin's natural hydration capacity. What Hydra-Essentiel does, is it quenches thirsty skin and boosts skin's ability to retain precious moisture for all day hydration. If you are like me and are tired of your skin looking dry and weathered, then I suggest you try out this duo. It does not hurt and it works in any environment, which for me is a top priority. I hate having to travel to different places and bring a different serum and cream suitable for that environment. I want to invest in something I could use anywhere. Follow me along on Instagram and Snap @savvyjavvy to see how my skin is improving in the coming months!
