NEW YORK, March 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Clarins, the world-renowned French beauty brand, shakes up skincare with New Multi-Active: a revolutionary day and night duo designed to combat stress-induced ageing and restore youthful radiance, 24/7.

After years of research, Clarins Laboratories identified the detrimental effects of stress and fatigue on the skin, commonly referred to as stress-ageing1. Through meticulous typology studies, the research team uncovered eight2 visible signs of aging intensified by hectic lifestyles and daily stressors which accelerate the natural aging process.

The research revealed that stress triggers a thinning of the epidermis, compromising the skin’s barrier function and altering its texture. In stressful conditions, up to a 24% reduction in epidermal thickness was observed. Moreover, increased stress levels slow down the renewal of epidermal cells, leading to visible premature signs of aging: dullness, wrinkles, fine lines, and rough skin texture. Additionally, decreased fibroblast activity in the dermal layer results in diminished collagen and elastin production, essential for maintaining skin firmness.

To conclude, these two studies revealed how stress and lack of sleep visibly accentuate 8 signs of ageing2:

+9.5% Increase in the size of pores

+14.2% A more uneven complexion

+16.4% More hollow features

+15% Severity of wrinkles and fine lines3

+20.3% Overall look of fatigue         

-13.4% Drop in skin tone3  

+12% Increase in insensible water loss – skin prone to dehydration

-2.4% Less luminosity4
