How to get the perfect rosy glow from within


How would you describe your perfect dream complexion? Is it blemish-free? Rosy in colour? With a healthy radiance? Yes, yes and yes? Well, your deepest wish is the desire of most Asian women who dream of having translucent and beautiful skin.

But this can be difficult living in a tropical country and when faced with the daily stressors and environmental aggressors including UVA, UVB and pollution. The sun especially can be damaging to the skin and without the right protection or prevention, you’ll soon be staring at those pesky dark spots around your eye area.

Don’t fret or frown just yet. Clarins has just the right support to help you out. Begin your first preventive step with the French brand’s White Plus Pure Translucency range that is designed to light up your complexion with a healthy glow from within. How is this possible? It’s all thanks to the acerola fruit.

At the heart of Clarins is its history of scientific breakthrough and one such significant discovery is the power of the acerola fruit, which was found to have a unique double action. The fruit extract can help slow down melanin production while the seeds help enhance better cell functioning. These potent ingredients make up the White Plus Pure Translucency collection to help you get your dream complexion.

Meet the key to your perfect skin

We pick out the top three products from the range to try.

As with any skincare step, cleansing is the right start to beautiful skin. The Creamy Mousse Cleanser works to rid the skin of all impurities, sebum and pollution. With its whipped cream texture, skin feels fresh, luminous and less dull after use.


A serum is a must in all good skincare regimes. The Tri-Intensive Brightening Serum is specially formulated for Asian women to achieve their desired radiant complexion. Along with the acerola fruit, it also contains Vitamin C derivative and hyaluronic acid complex that work in harmony to fight against the effects of the sun including reducing melanin overproduction as well as controlling pigmentation and dark spots.  

For the best application method, click play above. Only three simple steps: 1) dispense and warm serum between hands; 2) apply with gentle sweeping motion across the face; 3) drain by gently pressing from face to the neck. 

Our skin begins its healing process every evening, so it makes sense to slather on some extra care to help restore our vitality. With a cream-jelly texture, the Brightening Revive Gel can benefit you in three ways. It can be used as a moisturiser, an overnight mask or intensive mask to help revitalise the skin, even out skin tone and combat yellow disposition.

Pro tip!

Pair your favourite White Plus Pure Translucency products with the Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF50/PA++++ sunscreen to keep skin’s youthfulness and achieve the perfect dream complexion. Its powerful concentration of plant extracts protects the skin on the surface from free radicals and also penetrates deep down to reinforce the skin’s barrier. Go for the neutral shade if you prefer a natural transparent finish or baby blue if you want a fair and even tone. Our pick is the baby pink for that fresh radiant flush.


Clarins White Plus Pure Translucency range and Clarins UV Plus Pollution SPF50/PA++++ are available at all authorised counters and stores nationwide, as well as online.
