Back in 1991, Clarins created its first atmospheric anti-pollution complex to prevent premature ageing and loss of radiance related to pollution. In 2005, Clarins launched its first UV Protective Day Screen against UV and anti-pollution.
Air pollution is prevalent everywhere but more so in Asia. This has affected not only our health but also our skin. Free radicals attack skin cells and both air and water pollution can strip skin from moisture, causing discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles.
As a pioneer, Clarins has now gone even further by introducing the new and improved UV Plus Anti-Pollution with SPF 50/PA ++++. This daily plant-powered multi-protection UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF50/PA++++ has 3 key actions – Anti-UV, Anti-Pollution, Anti-Ageing. The ideal sunscreen for daily use and contains fine, smooth and oil-free texture which fights against the UV rays and heavy pollution designed for all Asian women.
Thanks to the Clarins Research team, a new and exclusive plant was discovered. Organic Alpine Sanicle extract has an active anti-oxidant protection on the skin surface and deep down. It marks a major advance in the protection of skin against the dual aggressions of UV and pollution. In addition, the skin surface is protected from dehydration by hyaluronic acid as well as the exclusive anti-pollution complex added in to fights the visible signs of premature skin ageing and loss of radiance.
Organic Alpine Sanicle extract is rich in the antioxidant rosmarinic acid, the extract helps fight the damaging effects of free radicals. It protects the skin by reinforcing its natural defenses against the harmful effects of pollution and UV rays, to recreate the ideal ecosystem and thus preserve the skin’s health and beauty.
Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF50/PA++++ comes in 3 shades to suit everyone’s needs
The tiny opening in the bottle ensures that it only dispenses what you need. This is quite a fluid sunscreen and it smells fantastic, floral and one of the nicest smelling sunscreens out there. It feels non-sticky, absorbs quickly into skin and gives my skin a really lovely rosy glow because I got to try the baby pink shade which gives skin luminosity. If your complexion is dull and needs a healthy glow, this is the sunscreen to go for.
Other shades are neutral which is imperceptible on skin with a transparent finish and baby blue which minimizes the look of redness, dark spots and imperfections.
It gives skin a dewy glow and subtle pinkish radiance, skin looks less yellow and more healthy. I can say this is one of my favourite sunscreens of the year.
