Get Illuminating Asian Skin With L'Occitane | Clozette

It all started with Olivier Baussan's small truck and vast knowledge of plants that lead to his experiment with Rosemary essential oils. He sold this product to local markets in Provence and then moved on to offering soap, fragrance, and shea butter creations. By 1981, L’Occitane opens its first ever store and factory in Volx Provence, and the rest is as they say, "history". 


Today, L’Occitane doesn't stop with upgrading their range of skincare products. Despite being a hailed as French brand, L’Occitane has managed to create a skincare program specifically for Asian skin. This new Illuminating program called Reine Blanche is tested, developed, and hailed as a breakthrough whitening technology for using the pure & powerful white flowers: Reine des Prés


Reine des Prés, also known as Meadowsweet, is the heart of the all-new Reine Blanche Collection. The flower’s petals are initially creamy in tone and gradually becomes whiter as they are exposed to the light. It has Salicylic Acid, known for its mild exfoliating action, that helps refine skin's texture and encourage renewal. Thus it suits the delicate skin of Asian women very well.  


Let's examine this collection closer and see how it produces creamy, milky-white complexion that poets and painters of history have raved about.

Its Mild Formula Boosts Skin Moisture



Illuminating Foaming Cleanser 200ml at RM145 & Illuminating Toner 200ml at RM118


This luxurious 5-piece collection, presented in clean, white apothecary-style jars with a lustrous finish, starts with its Illuminating Foaming Cleanser followed by its Illuminating Toner. The soft as silk liquid cleanser transforms into a foam that cleanses skin of impurities, excess sebum and makeup--helping skin regain its natural translucency. The ultra-mild, alcohol-free formula of the toner gently preps skin--leaving it fresh and smooth. Together, it brightens and unifies the complexion, and helps to instantly infuse skin with moisture. 

It Restores Skin’s Inner Light



Whitening Serum 30ml RM272 & Whitening Cream 50ml RM258


With White Mulberry, Salicylic acid, and Vitamin C together, skin will enjoy the brightening, exfoliating, and illuminating benefits of the product. The Whitening Serum and Cream reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone such as dark spots, for a fairer complexion that better captures and reflects light.



It Protects and Keeps Skin Luminous


Illuminating UV Shield SPF50 30ml RM178


For protection and flawless luminosity is this lightweight Illuminating UV Shield-- a sunscreen that shields your skin from everyday external factors, especially UV rays that harms and damages the skin. With Reine des Prés, your skin will recover its natural translucency resulting in an immaculate radiance.


The Reine Blanche collection replaces the existing Immortelle Brightening collection and is now available at all L’Occitane outlets in Malaysia.

Here's the deal. No matter how many beauty products we apply to our skin and hair, nothing beats the purifying effect of leading a healthy lifestyle that brings forth changes in your body from the inside, allowing you to achieve that highly sought after glow from within.


So here are our top tips on how to reshape your lifestyle to get you on your way to achieving that healthy glow you've always wanted. Summer is just around the corner; so it's time to #MakeItHappen, Clozetters!


--------------------------


Tip #1: Exercise

When you want to push your body to renew from inside, nothing works better than a good round of exercise that keeps your blood pumping. Whether you're into running, or tennis, or something a bit calmer like yoga or pilates, a good workout not only keeps your body trim and fit but also gives you great skin. The increase in blood flow that comes with any workout nourishes your skin with extra nutrients and oxygen, while sweating aids in cleansing your body of toxins. Keep up a good exercise regimen for a month and you'll start to see a difference in your skin.
Tip #2: Eat Healthy

For a truly healthy glow, you need to eat healthy food that will recharge your body while keeping your waistline trim and lean. Reduce your intake of processed food and carbohydrates while upping your intake of lean proteins, vegetables, and fruits. But with any diet, cheat-days are a must. We all love and need a good burger or a slice of pizza once in a while. At the end of the day, it's really all about moderation, to find that balance of keeping your mind and body happy with the food you eat.


Tip #3: Keep Moving

A stagnant lifestyle equates a stagnant body. So in-between workout days or even just throughout your daily work or school schedule, aim to keep your body moving, whether it be to take an extra 10 minute walk during your breaks or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The best thing about increasing your body's daily movement: it prevents belly bloat---you know, that thing that happens when you spend your days just sitting down in front of a computer for hours on end.


Tip #4: Vitamin Intake

Give your body the boost it needs from the get-go by introducing daily vitamins to your regimen. Daily vitamins ensure that you're not missing out on any essential vitamins and nutrients that may be lacking in your diet. Nowadays, there's a variety of natural vitamins that target specific concerns, such as vitamins that promote healthy skin, hair, and nails that are available.


Tip #5: Add On The Glow

There is nothing wrong with perfecting and enhancing your healthy glow with beauty products. To achieve that yes-I-am-always-summer-ready type of glow, opt for a lightweight sheer foundation that will give your complexion a dewy finish. Then, dust a light bronzer around the areas that the sun naturally hits. Finish off the look with warm, pink lips for a touch of colour.
