A duty free experience with @Sophietta

#ForumCelebritySeries landed in Italy for a shopping experience with Sophia Salaroli Caniaux

Italy is home to many of the world’s greatest works of art, architecture, gastronomy alike and inspires fashion and design like no other. So, which would be the perfect place to land another episode of #ForumCelebritySeries? Milan, obviously.

We met the Italian model and influencer, Sophia Salaroli Caniaux -- @Sophietta on Instagram, at Malpensa Airport to discover her beauty tricks when travelling. To Sophia, being an influencer means to inspire others as she has been influenced by many others herself. In this special duty free experience, Sophia is presented the new Clinique iD by a beauty expert while indulging in the benefits of duty free shopping!

While travelling, you are likely to be more fatigue and your skin will need extra attention. What are the must-have items that always make their way into your suitcase? Which do you recommend for healthy and well-rested looking skin?

When I’m travelling and flying for many hours, my skin tends to get dehydrated very easily. For this reason, I never leave home without a great moisturizer and a travel-sized thermal water spray.

A daily beauty routine is necessary to feel good. Since you are on the move so often, what time of the day do you usually set aside to pamper yourself? 

Strictly in the morning when I wake up and in the evening when I get home. Despite arriving home very late at times, carving out time to dedicate to skincare is essential to counteract fatigue.

If you had to choose a product that you cannot skip to use in your daily routines to keep your skin hydrated, what would it be? Why? 

I can go without some of my routine products; however, I never skip my cleanser and moisturizer. The cleanser renews my skin’s circulation and makes me glow. The moisturizer protects my skin from all external agents and makes it elastic, both aspects of skin care that I cannot neglect.

Clinique iD is a unisex product. Their first custom-blend hydration system made specifically for any skin type and skin concern. What skin type do you have? If you had to choose one combination, which one would work better for your skin type?

I have a combination skin type so there are many things I have to watch out for and keep at bay. I would choose the Oil-Control Gel as my base to control shiny areas and the Lines and Wrinkles Active Cartridge Concentrate to prevent the formation of wrinkles.

During your experience at Malpensa Airport, you had the opportunity to interact with a Clinique iD expert. What are the tips you would give us to correctly apply the product? 

The expert I was lucky enough to meet during my duty free experience explained perfectly how Clinique iD works. The advice I can give is not to underestimate any speculated skin issues and choose a custom mix that works to correct every imperfection. If you choose a lotion that works towards one imperfection, you will ideally choose a cartridge that works in a complementary way.

Tell us 3 reasons why you would recommend testing Clinique iD. 

First, it is an all-in-one cream which will help you to avoid using too many products. Secondly, it is a product of excellent quality and a great way to start taking care of your skin the right way. Lastly, despite the complex studies to make such an effective product, it is very easy to use, allowing for a more relaxed beauty routine.

Lastly, after your visit to the duty free store, what was the best thing about the beauty area? 

The thing I loved most about the beauty area is that I could find a wide array of products that I am most passionate about, ranging from perfumes to make-up and skin care. Moreover, I really appreciate that there are so many exclusive offers! Since I travel a lot it’s very convenient for me to shop at duty free!
