One Day Flowers, Two-Year Pearls and the secrets of skin illumination

Coco Chanel said, “A woman is only as good as the light and peace she radiates.” While she may have been speaking of inner beauty, it can’t hurt to each have our own portable light, like a soft beam of sunshine to follow us around. Chanel’s solution is much more down-to-earth, of course, but no less heavenly. The new Le Blanc whitening line perfects the complexion with two secret ingredients: a pearl and a flower.

In 2011, Chanel culminated nine years of research on skin whitening with the revolutionary TXC molecule, an exclusive quasi-drug whitening active ingredient that works throughout the hyperpigmentation process on all key steps of melanogenesis to reveal even, bright skin. Because skin cells are protected by melanin, the objective is not to stop it, but instead, balance it so that it does not overperform and darken skin. It acts on seven factors responsible for the chain reaction of melanin production, and is activated for 12 hours. Existing dark spots are reduced and new ones are prevented.

To perfect the effects of TXC, Chanel combines it with the Two-Year Pearl Extract — a specific Akoya pearl from Japan, cultivated for Chanel for two years to reach its prime quality. The mature pearl reveals incredible luminosity, and contains active moisturizing molecules to brighten complexion and hydrate skin.

Supporting the Two-Year Pearl is the One Day Flower, which blossoms at dawn and fades at dusk. It is a potent natural antioxidant that prevents lipid peroxidation on the skin surface for a pure, translucent complexion. It prevents a yellowish, dull complexion and amplifies the illuminating effects of the Two-Year Pearl.

The combination of the TXC Molecule, the Two-Day Pearl and One Day Flower is the arsenal behind Chanel Le Blanc, which moisturizes and protects the surface of the skin from oxidation, while correcting dull complexions and yellow-toned skin. For total illumination, like a permanent flattering light on your face, follow this Chanel Le Blanc regimen:

1. Apply Le Blanc Whitening Concentrate Double Action TXC morning and evening on entire face, eye contour and neck. It has a fine, translucent texture that melts on the skin and delivers a sensation of freshness, making the face visibly more luminous and radiant.

2. Moisturize with Le Blanc Whitening Moisturizing Cream TXC to reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone. It delivers up to 12 hours of hydration, lights up the skin, and plumps the surface.

Le Blanc cream comes in two textures: Crème Fine, which is light and delicate, and the Crème Rich, which melts on skin and leaves behind a velvety comfort. Apply morning and evening on face and neck.

3. Perfect your complexion with Chanel Le Blanc Light Creating Whitening Compact Foundation SPF25/PA +++, an Active Lightening Ceramic that reflects light and actively generates it. It absorbs energy and re-emits it in longer wavelengths so natural brightness is enhanced. It has six different shades that all feel comforting on the skin.

4. For additional glow, apply Jardin De Camélias, a compact powder that lights up the face with pearly shimmer, in Ivoire Rosé. Dust on cheekbones, temples and lightly on the tip of the nose.

5. For a wash of luminous color on the eyes, use Illusion D’Ombre in Fantasme, an iridescent shadow that gives eyes a wide-open effect.

6. Top the look with a swipe of Aqualumier Gloss in Eau De Rose, a pearly, almost transparent pink, on the lips. For more intense color, try Pink Pivoine, a fresh raspberry tone.
