Your skin needs different forms of nourishment at different times of the year, non? Heavier, rich creams in wintertime and lighter textures in summer (plus sun block at all times, s’il vous plait)

French women are an example to us all when it comes to skincare. Trained from a young age to value their skin and maintain a disciplined routine using the best products, they rarely overdo the make up, preferring to add just a little to enhance their natural beauty.

Surely the most chic of French brands must be Chanel with its glamorous heritage of fashion and beauty setting the bar very high indeed.

The latest addition to its luxury skin care line is a new concept in understanding how skin works. which aims to rebalance or “resynchronise” skin for day, night and weekend. Each of the three treatments can be used alongside your regular skincare and are applied after cleansing and before moisturising. The trio can be used on an ongoing basis or as a special “restauration” a couple of times a year.

Daytime is the busiest time for your skin as it needs to constantly adapt to different situations, temperatures and weather, when it should be concentrating on much needed cell renewal. Le Jour tackles these environmental factors, helping cells to regenerate and cope with the most aggressive nasties modern living can throw at it. A micro dose of daily exfoliant keeps skin bright and fresh and the sheer gel texture melts in quickly – quite a bonus if you’re pressed for time.

The night time treatment targets issues that arises during rest time. You may be sleeping, but your skin is as its most active between 11pm and 4am, repairing and recharging for the next day. Le Nuit contains frankincense extract to soothe skin, helping cells repair, while hyaluronic acid releases gradually throughout the night to plump up skin for a more rested appearance.

Le Weekend gives skin a break from the week’s routine and concentrates on renewing . Dead skin cells are sloughed away with a top peeling ingredient, glycolic acid. This is used in a gentle formula which works over the weekend period to refine skin’s texture, leaving it ready to go on Monday morning.
