MANILA - It's time to put those highlighter and contour kits down for a minute and think about skincare. 

It's not just about our daily facial cleansing regimen, but also about trying to prevent our skin from aging.

Our skin may still look young and healthy now, but it is never too early to be proactive about wrinkles and creases. 

As the strong, independent, 21st century woman making your mark in the world, what can you do to prevent premature aging?

French luxury beauty care brand Clarins conducted a study on women in their mid-20s to gain a better understanding of their beauty concerns, and the two biggest factors identified were stress and lack of sleep.

When we're stressed and lack sleep, our body develops free radical cells that attack our Fibroblast cells, which produce collagen and elastin fibers that keep our skin looking young and
smooth.

With the destruction of the Fibroblast cells, our skin begins to generate fine lines and develop a dull complexion.

Fortunately, premature aging and stressed skin can be readily targeted by a good skin regimen. By incorporating a lightweight but dewy daytime and a nourishing evening moisturizer, young women can drastically improve the condition of their skin in just a few weeks' time. 

Never take for granted the condition of your skin because that extra effort to treat it is a simple, personal investment for the years to come.

Clarins Multi-Active line is available in Rustan's department stores.
