Once a woman reaches her 30s, she will start worrying about these two beauty concerns: wrinkles and large pores.
The ridges and creases are inevitable.
Their appearance can be delayed, but, like it or not, they are part of the aging process.
And so are the tiny dots, which are also caused by genes and lifestyle.
They tend to expand as you age because the collagen and elastin tissues, which are structural support to your skin, break down.
Dermatologists would say there's no single product which can address these skin problems.
You'll need a sun block and anything with salicylic acid, natural fruit acids Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), Tretinoin, Vitamins A, C, and E, among others.
But this eight-generation edition of Clarins Double Serum, which was launched last October 12, put together 20 plant extracts plus its latest star ingredient turmerone.
Apparently, the cells found in Keratinocytes, the key to the skin’s barrier function, and fibroblasts, which promote youthful skin, communicate to each other using "lipid microdomains," which can "hear" messages from the environment.
The turmeric extracts ensure the improved "listening" ability and communication of the cells, not to mention the optimized "regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration, and protection" of our skin.
Its immediate result is "instant radiance," said Brand Manager Jobs Chan.
Eventually, in just four weeks, the "pores are minimized and the fine lines become lesser."
Why in form of serums?
"They go deeper into the skin."
