In my latest video, I talk about the newly launched Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss range – a range of water based, light weight skin care products. I have just started using the products and here are my initial thoughts on the Reflection Serum, Gel Creme and Overnight Mask from the range ~
To summarize : I love the packaging and the refreshing gel-like textures of these products. They feel lightweight yet quite hydrating on the skin and are great for summer/oily skin. But I do NOT like the heavy scent – especially when it comes to the overnight mask because it stays on the skin for a long time and the cologne-like scent lingers for a few hours.
The seasonal variation and cold temperatures do leave our skin stripped of essential oils. As a result, many of us start avoiding essential skin treatments like exfoliation, also staying clear of face masks fearing any further damage.To beat the winter blues, the Clinique range of exfoliators / masks rejuvenate and revive the skin enhancing the glow.
Regardless of your skin type, exfoliating improves all types of skin and all types of concerns, according to Dr. Tom Mammone, Executive Director of Skin Physiology and Pharmacology, Clinique Research & Development, Worldwide. For example :
· If you have dry skin, exfoliation allows for more effective moisturization, so skin looks and feels comfortable.
If you have normal skin, exfoliation keeps skin looking clean, healthy, more uniform in tone and less likely to break out.
If you have oily skin, exfoliation keeps pores clear, discourages clogging, and is one of the ways to help diminish dark spots caused by acne.
If you have uneven skin tone, exfoliation helps diminish dark spots (hyperpigmentation) and light spots (hypopigmentation) caused by allergic rashes, blemishes, etc
