HOW IT WORKS

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

A com­mon skin con­cern is in­flam­ma­tion. When con­stantly in­flamed, skin does not have the ca­pac­ity to re­pair it­self, but once soothed, it re­gains this ca­pac­ity. Clin­ique Smart Serum con­tains ac­tive in­gre­di­ents such as ‘su­per­charged’ red al­gae, which calms skin, en­cour­ag­ing it to re­pair any dam­age, as well as liquorice ex­tract and caf­feine, which op­ti­mise cel­lu­lar ef­fi­ciency and re­duce ir­ri­ta­tion.

TAR­GETS UN­EVEN SKIN TONE, DARK SPOTS AND DULL­NESS

Evens skin tone Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Di­anella en­si­fo­lia, morus ni­gra root ex­tract and grape ex­tract help to even out skin tone.

Re­duces the ap­pear­ance of dark spots Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Vi­ta­min C and er­goth­ioneine fight ex­cess melanin pro­duc­tion, while sal­i­cylic acid ex­fo­li­ates the skin to break up the dark spots. Im­proves ra­di­ance, smooth­ness and lu­mi­nos­ity Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Glu­cosamine and sal­i­cylic acid pro­mote the re­newal of skin cells in order to re­duce dull­ness on the sur­face of the skin.

TAR­GETS LINES, WRIN­KLES AND FIRMS SKIN

Re­duces the ap­pear­ance of wrin­kles Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Acetyl hexapep­tide-8 and palmi­toyl oligopep­tide both boost col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and help push up lines and wrin­kles from below the skin’s sur­face. Ul­tra­somes, pho­to­somes and rox­i­somes are re­leased to work to­gether to help vis­i­bly cor­rect and re­pair UV dam­age that con­trib­utes to the cause of lines and wrin­kles. Sodium RNA ac­ti­vates the nat­u­ral skin-re­newal sys­tems to help vis­i­bly re­pair UV dam­age.

Firms and lifts the skin Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Whey pro­tein and sieges­beckia ori­en­talis ex­tract are col­la­gen boost­ers that help re­build the skin’s sup­port struc­ture to re­store vol­ume to thin, hol­low and sag­ging skin, and to re­store elas­tic­ity.

SUS­TAINS HY­DRA­TION AND SUP­PLE­NESS

Main­tains skin’s mois­ture lev­els Ac­tive in­gre­di­ents: Hyaluronic acid, bar­ley ex­tract, wheat germ ex­tract and cu­cum­ber ex­tract keep the skin well hy­drated, sup­ple and plump through­out the day. HOW TO USE IT This serum is suit­able for all skin types, ages and eth­nic­i­ties. Dis­pense two pumps of the serum into the palm of your hand and gen­tly mas­sage the serum into the skin with your fin­ger­tips to help mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion. Ap­ply twice a day af­ter the ap­pro­pri­ate three-step skin-care sys­tem. Then ap­ply the ap­pro­pri­ate mois­turiser and sun­screen dur­ing the day.
