With only four weeks to go, the clock is ticking, and you’re just in time to ramp up your skincare regime for that much-needed holiday boost! When it comes to skincare, take it from the French – Parisian women are well known for their meticulous dedication to the maintenance of flawless-looking skin. In fact, anti-ageing serums, sun protection, and day and night moisturisers are de rigueur in every Parisian’s beauty arsenal. Are you ready to have your best skin in a month? Here’s what you need to take you through the festivities looking glamorous and gorgeous:

Energise your skin with intense hydration

Let’s face it, we’re busy women with packed schedules and rigorous lifestyles – now that’s bad news for our skin. And with mere weeks left, you’ll want a powerhouse of hydration to revive tired, dull skin before Christmas arrives!

The solution? Try Énergie De Vie Liquid Care™, a liquid moisturiser that’s ultra-hydrating and anti-fatigue. This all-in-one skin energiser combines the benefits of a lotion, serum, and cream, to invigorate skin and fuel its’ natural glow. Formulated with an efficacious blend of Goji Berry, French Melissa, and Gentian, this superfood for your skin melts upon application, leaving skin feeling fresh and energised. Another plus? It also acts as a great base for makeup!

How to use: Use daily in place of your regular moisturiser. Apply one or two drops of Énergie De Vie Liquid Care™ to clean skin, and blend in using circular motions.

Keep the signs of ageing at bay

While the thought of wrinkles may seem distant to women in their 20s, it’s during these formative years that preventative care is paramount to the maintenance of skin health. Many of us take the youthfulness of our skin for granted, but French women understand that it’s never too early to start anti-ageing skincare – the premise is simple: take good care of your skin now, and you’ll worry less about pre-mature wrinkles later on!


Fondly referred to in Asia as “the little black bottle”, Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate is a must-have skincare staple not just for the classic Parisian beauty, but for millions of women the world over. Suitable for all skin types, this powerful youth-activating serum reveals youthful radiance and smoother skin in just seven days – it’s no wonder this “youth in a bottle” has sold 150 million bottles worldwide (that’s one bottle sold every four seconds), and won 150 awards internationally! Scientifically proven to be effective in targeting the 10 key tactile and visual signs of youth, Advanced Génifique has an amazingly lightweight texture which is instantly absorbed into skin.

How to use: Recommended as the first essential step to your skincare routine after cleansing, Advanced Génifique complements any existing regime by boosting the efficacy of follow-up skincare products applied, by up to three times. A smart self-loading applicator ensures zero wastage by dispensing just the right amount for each application (to be used on the entire face and neck area).

Power up your night time skincare routine

Research shows that cell turnover peaks at night, so think of bedtime as an opportunity to feed your skin what it needs to optimise healing and regeneration. As your skin cells rejuvenate while you sleep, night creams are effectively formulated to boost your skin’s recovery process with the essential nutrients it needs to repair itself.


Enriched with multi-tension technology, Rénergie Multi-Lift Night Cream is a luxurious overnight moisturiser which lifts, firms, and tightens skin. With regular use, this multi-action night cream diminishes the appearance of skin laxity, leaving facial contours looking firm and lifted. You will wake up to visibly younger-looking skin in just four weeks!

How to use: Apply to cleansed skin after makeup removal every night. For optimal absorption, work the cream into your skin using upward sweeping motions, while pinching lightly to stimulate blood-flow.

Lancôme’s products are available at all Lancôme counters, the Lancôme boutique at Capitol Piazza, TANGS.com and Sephora.sg.
