Bright of way

It's not uncommon to see beauty brands offering up brightening serums at this time of the year. Clé de Peau Beauté goes one up with an option for both your face and body

In our pursuit of perfect skin, we often forget one very large and important area — the rest of our bodies. By concentrating our skincare regimen on our faces (and necks) we can neglect other body parts specifically the décoletté, the arms and hands and even the legs. But these areas are subject to the same external stressors and ageing processes as our faces and can be one of the most telltale signs of our true age. If you've ever seen a pair of mottled looking hands on a seemingly young woman, you'll know what we're talking about.

Cle de Peau Body Serum

Clé de Peau Beauté expands its brightening collection with a new Concentrated Brightening Body Serum as well as a reformulated Concentrated Brightening Serum. The body serum in particular is a worthy (and affordable) splurge for the woman who wants to maintain evenness and luminosity on her entire body and is great for brides-to-be or before a big event. We won't lie — it does take immense dedication to apply a serum on your entire body. But seeing the results will certainly be a great motivator. Inspired by the brilliance of a well-cut diamond, both serums focus on attaining three kinds of luminosity — clarity, a vibrant skin tone, and the overall appearance of radiance on the skin. Using ingredients like mangosteen, citrus unshiu peel and bread yeast extracts the serums reduce the look of brown spots and promote cell turnover so that these don't form as easily. Another key ingredient in the artemisia princeps leaf extract, a plant that invigorates the skin cells and promotes the expulsion of melanin so that it doesn't accumulate in the skin. With gorgeous textures that sink in and the best of Japanese technology in a bottle, these are skin indulgences you won't regret investing in.

From $120-$240. Available now at Clé de Peau Beauté counters.
