Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré – the secret behind Elle Macpherson’s youthful looking skin!

”What I am particular about is moisturisers. My favourite is French pharmacy moisturiser Embryolisse. It’s a no-nonsense, good quality cream.” – “The Body”, Elle MacPherson, aged 50.

It’s not by accident that supermodel Elle Macpherson has a line-free face at 51 years old. Her secret? Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. Hailed as the “anti

ageing wonder cream” by a host of backstage makeup artists and celebrities, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré is credited to providing smooth, soft, line free skin that imparts a youthful glow.

As we get older, even as early as the age of 40, the skin starts to lose its capacity to retain moisture and becomes more susceptible to drying. Lipids primarily act by preventing evaporation of the natural moisture in the skin, providing a barrier to water loss. Without adequate lipids, people simply lose too much water from the skin and it dries out causing fine lines and wrinkles.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré tackles dehydration supremely with its combination of ingredients of natural origin, rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré provides the skin with all the nutrients and water needed for its balance, and accelerates cell renewal. Ultra nourishing, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré moisturises and repairs dehydrated, over sensitised skin until it becomes supple and incredibly soft, eradicating any first signs of lines. The secret behind Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré and how it attributes to youthful looking skin is its simple formula, allowing the cream to be used as moisturizer, a makeup remover and a primer all at the same time. Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré formulation includes ingredients like water; stearic acid, to help remove dirt and makeup; and hydrolyzed soy protein, to increase , good quality” consistency. The skin’s ability to retain moisture. This cream also contains aloe barbadensis to moisturize the skin, and mineral oils.

How to Use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
