Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale The Light Cream is an exceptional complete care product, renowned for its effectiveness on the signs of skin ageing and its weightless, non-oily texture. It brings women the best that orchids and science have to offer in terms of skin longevity. Thanks to the discovery of the prodigious powers of a duo of orchids, the new Light Cream helps to effectively combat the visible signs of skin ageing.
Enriched with knotweed extract and two hyaluronic acids, the Light Cream helps the skin to rehydrate itself and recreate its water reserves while strengthening its protective barrier*.
With optimum hydration levels and comfort restored, the skin looks radiant and plump.
Experts at Institut Guerlain have invented an exclusive application method that combines a professional application technique with breathing exercises to optimise the benefits of The Light Cream. Treat yourself to a moment devoted to self-connection and finding inner peace and harmony with this unique sensorial experience.
1- Before application: Breathe deeply & prepare the skin.
Cleanse the skin with Orchidée Impériale Rich Cleansing Foam; then, on dry skin, slowly and firmly press with your fingertips on the following pressure points: chin, corners of the lips, under the nose, between the eyebrows, above the arch of your eyebrows and the temples. Inhale as you press and exhale when you release.
2- Apply The Light Cream: SMOOTH
After applying your lotion and serum, take a small amount of The Light Cream using the spatula and apply to the face with your fingertips, smoothing from the centre of the face outwards: start with the chin, then the cheeks, the forehead and finally the nose.
3- After application: ENERGISE
Make fists with your hands. Place your fists on your cheeks. Firmly rotate upwards while exhaling deeply. Carry out the same movement on the contours of the face, the forehead, the neck and the décolleté, exhaling each time.
4 - RELAX
Place your left hand on your forehead and your right hand on your right cheek. Slide both hands simultaneously anti-clockwise along the contours of the face. As you move your hands, tilt your head to the left and breathe deeply. Repeat on the other side. Carry out this movement three times.
