Every doctor and dermatologist will agree that hydration is essential to a healthy, glowing complexion. After all, when skin is dry and dehydrated, it leads to a host of other issues like premature ageing, roughness, dullness and sensitivity.
It is precisely because of its importance that Chanel Beauty has dedicated one of its most precious ingredients to its Hydra Beauty range: the Camellia Alba Plena flower. Grown in Gaujacq, France, it has a high concentration of active ingredients that intensely moisturises and energises skin.

Something else that sets the Hydra Beauty line apart is its use of microfluidics technology. Chanel is the first brand to use microfluidics to create skincare with active ingredients that do not need membranes and are instead stabilised in micro-droplets.
Why is this so important? For one, the technology gives the ingredients a direct affinity with skin. Without a membrane, active ingredients can get absorbed into skin as soon as one applies the product. This improves its efficacy and efficiency.
Secondly, micro-droplets give you a 100 per cent active formula (read: there are no stabilisers or superfluous ingredients that mainly help to deliver actives, but don’t actually do anything for your skin; they might even irritate sensitive complexions). In short: All the ingredients that your skin receives are nourishing for the complexion
The Micro Serum, Micro Liquid Essence, Micro Gel Yeux and Micro Creme in the Chanel Hydra Beauty range is made using microfluidics technology.
Currently, this microfluidic technology is used in four products in the Chanel Hydra Beauty range: the Micro Serum, Micro Liquid Essence, Micro Gel Yeux and Micro Creme. Used together, they will make your skin feel softer, smoother, plumper and more balanced instantly.
One person who knows first-hand the perks of Chanel Hydra Beauty is digital content creator Salina Chai. The 27-year-old is a longtime fan of the French luxury house’s skincare and cosmetics, swearing by their ability to keep one looking refreshed 24/7.
Case in point? In July, her original plans to host her solemnisation in a beautiful venue was derailed at the last minute by the pandemic and the new regulations that had kicked in with Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), forcing her to hold it at home instead. If she was stressed out by the situation, it was impossible to tell with her glowing complexion.
Here, she shares with us her beauty routine leading up to the nuptials.
