Wake up With Glowing Skin Every Day

Getting your beauty sleep is vital if you want glowing, healthy skin. We find out why L’Occitane’s latest launch is making waking up with a radiant, refreshed complexion a whole lot easier.

Genetics have and always will play an important role in the health of our skin. But when it comes to resilient, radiant skin, the impact our lifestyle has on our complexion can’t be underestimated. Spend a weekend overindulging in sugar-laden treats or soaking up too many sun rays and it will show on your skin.

But it’s not just diet and sun exposure that is having a negative effect on our skin: everything from exposure to pollution to daily stress and how much sleep we get each night could be standing in the way of you achieving your healthy skin goals.

The Importance of Beauty Sleep

Balancing a busy professional and social life has become the norm these days. And as fulfilling as a buzzing lifestyle can be, it can also be exhausting. Burn the candle at both ends and our wellness routine – diet, sleep and stress levels – can suffer. As a result, our skin loses its glow, becomes drier and the signs of ageing are more obvious.

A good night’s sleep is crucial to our overall health but it also plays a vital role in skin health. When we’re getting serious shut-eye our skin cells are busy regenerating and as a result, our skin is more receptive to skincare. Nighttime is also the best time to reverse the impact a busy life has on our complexion, which is why L’Occitane has launched Immortelle Reset: a powerful night serum which works hard while you sleep so you always wake up with glowing, revitalised skin.

Wake up Glowing

If you’re juggling a busy schedule and not getting restful sleep each night, your complexion is one of the first places to show it. Enter L’Occitane’s latest innovation, Immortelle Reset. Powered with a trio of stress-fighting natural ingredients, Immortelle Reset makes getting quality beauty sleep as easy as hitting the pillow and closing your eyes.

Each bottle of Immortelle Reset contains over 3000 tiny golden bubbles and each one holds the key to refreshed skin: the essential oil of the Immortelle flower. Harvested from sustainably sourced flowers, the essential oil works wonders to reverse the signs of ageing while powerful botanical ingredients acmella oleracea extract and marjoram extract smooth out visible lines, firm skin, and rejuvenate skin as your sleep.

The lightweight oil-in-serum – which is suitable for all skin types – glides onto skin and is quickly absorbed, leaving your complexion feeling deeply nourished. The end result is luminous, fresh-looking skin in just one night. With continued use, skin appears re-energised, deeply hydrated and youth is restored so you can wake up feeling knowing every day will be great skin day.  

L’Occitane Immortelle Reset  (30ml, $105) is available now from all L’Occitane boutiques. Click here to shop the new night serum online.


3 Reasons to Try Elizabeth Arden Prevage

1. It’s powered by a powerhouse antioxidant, Idebenone

If you’re after healthy, radiant skin, antioxidants need to be part of your day-to-day skin care routine to protect skin cells from free radical damage. While we get antioxidants from our diet and our body produces antioxidants in small amounts, our complexion often needs a helping hand to keep it in tip-top condition. 

The Elizabeth Arden Prevage range features Idebenone, a powerful antioxidant-packed ingredient that fights off free radicals and keeps skin protected from environmental aggressors. Try the Prevage Anti-aging Moisture Cream with Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 which is powered by Idebenone Ester. The smart delivery system provides a time release reservoir of Idebenone so your skin gets the antioxidant when it needs it the most. 

2. There’s a Prevage product to protect your skin from pollution. 

When we step outside it is often just UV rays that we try and protect our skin from, but like it or not, pollution and the damage it does to our skin needs to be on our radar too. Pollution particulate matter is so minuscule – particles can be up to 20 times smaller than human pores – that it can easily penetrate the skin. Once pollution has penetrated the skin it can cause free radicals. Unstable free radicals enter the healthy skin and injure cells. Over time inflammation occurs and collagen can break down and fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear. 

Enter Prevage City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield. The one-of-a-kind formulation was specifically created by Elizabeth Arden skincare scientists to fend off the damage caused by pollution. An advanced anti-pollution complex and DNA enzyme complex outsmart not only pollution but those pesky, skin-damaging UV rays too.

3. The Prevage foundation is much more than just a foundation.

Long gone are the days where all we simply expected our foundation to just cover up imperfections. These days we demand cutting-edge formulas that not only enhance and perfect our complexion but they improve the overall health of our skin as well. Elizabeth Arden has answered our foundation dreams with Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation.

While the lightweight formula glides onto skin to provide luminous, coverage the foundation is also packed with hero ingredient Idebenone. The powerful antioxidant works to restore the visible signs of ageing, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the day. And there are even Hydra-pigments that blur imperfections and lock in moisture to keep skin glowing right around the clock.
