L'OCCITANE wants its products to be both ethical AND effective. It wants you to enjoy all the benefits of plants through its carefully sourced, natural ingredients. And it wants to create formulas that are safe and effective on your skin, with innovative textures that delight the senses. Every product that L'OCCITANE launches has been developed in accordance with strict guidelines that always give priority to naturalness. And when it comes to skincare, L'OCCITANE offers a wide range of solutions that let you prep, activate and protect your skin, while also letting you indulge in a moment of me-time…



Step 1: Prepare your skin

OIL, LOTION, TONER… TAKE THE CONFUSION OUT OF CLEANSING!

It's quite easy to get lost in skincare! We're here to give you some help and guidance, so you can find your skincare essentials.
When it comes to prepping your skin, the most important thing is to rid it of dirt and impurities – including make-up, of course – along with the minerals that can be found in hard water.

This will help to enhance the effects of the products that follow. Think of it as a virtuous circle that makes every step even more effective. As for textures (oil, lotion, toner, etc.), choose one that you like, that feels good on your skin, and that contains the active ingredients you're looking for.


A FEW TIPS:

  •  Start by using a make-up remover 
  •  Follow with a facial cleanser
  •  Two or three times a week, exfoliate! This will help to slough away stubborn dead cells, stimulate cell renewal and smooth the skin surface.

Step 2: Activate your skin

Once you've got rid of nasty impurities and your skin is all prepped and squeaky clean, it's time to move on to targeted products.

Serums contain a high concentration of active ingredients and are seriously worth thinking about if you want to tackle a tiresome problem head-on. Perhaps you want to drench your skin in moisture, banish redness or see real anti-ageing results. A serum can help – a lot – with all of these things… An essence has the same role as a serum, but it's not as rich in active ingredients. Plus, its almost-liquid, gel-like texture makes it more suitable for dehydrated skin.
And let's not forget products that target a specific area, as well as a specific concern – such as eye creams that fight those pesky dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.
 
A FEW TIPS
  • Serums should be applied before your moisturiser.
  • When applying a serum or essence, lightly press the face with the palms of your hands.
  • It's a good idea to keep your hair out of the way when you're applying your skincare!

RESET ACTIVATE YOUR SKIN – AND SO MUCH MORE!

Immortelle Reset is the latest innovation from L'OCCITANE.
Designed specifically to be used overnight, this oil-in-serum is formulated around a trio of active ingredients: marjoram, which "wakes up" the skin, Acmella oleracea, with a smoothing and botox-like effect, and immortelle essential oil, known for its incredible ability to soften lines and wrinkles. All night long, this stunning formula works to restore your skin's radiance, so you can wake up to fresher-looking, younger-feeling skin!
90% of women said their skin looked younger after just 24 hours!*

But beyond its "rejuvenating" performance, this is a product that can really boost the one you apply afterwards. You can use it after cleansing and before your cream, to make it even more effective. For example, use it before the Divine Cream to help making its anti-ageing properties even more divine… 
*Consumer test results, 31 women.

A FEW TIPS
  • The effects of our Immortelle Reset serum are cumulative, so make sure you use it every day!  
  • Don't forget to incorporate it into your usual skincare routine: cleanse your skin before applying it, then follow with your night-time moisturizer.  
  • It's so powerful, one or two pumps are all you need!


STEP 3: PROTECT YOUR SKIN

All too often, a day cream, night cream, SPF cream or even a mist is seen as the first step in a skincare routine – when in fact it should be the last! Rethink your approach to hydration. 

It's not all about hydrating your skin; it's also about sealing that moisture in. If you need to nourish your skin too, try one of L'OCCITANE's Shea Butter formulas. There's a lighter version that's ideal for normal and combination skin, formulated with 5% shea, and an ultra-rich version that's perfect for dry to very dry skin, with 25%. 

If you're focused on fighting the signs of ageing, opt for our best-selling Immortelle Divine Cream. And if you want a more radiant complexion, try the Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream. If you're going to be out in the sun, we've also got creams with an SPF to keep your skin protected. 

A FEW TIPS
  1. Always apply a cream with an SPF if you're going to be out in the sun
  2. When you apply your face cream, don't forget your neck and décolleté! 
  3. Lightly pat your face, working outwards, to help boost circulation.
