They say we all have the same 24 hours in a day. However, what we do in those 24 hours is up to us. Between an eight-hour work day and the recommended eight hours of sleep a night we seldom achieve, there are only eight remaining hours for us to catch up on life and recreational activities.

However, if you do the maths, you’ll realise that your remaining personal hours do not, in fact, add up to eight. Thanks for that, Henry Ford.

Alas. Though Ford may be responsible for our daily early morning commute (which subsequently means that the bulk of our days is spent at work), there’s another pioneer whose name in which a different portion of our 24-hour day is taken care of - Elizabeth Arden. Move over, Henry - Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour range comes to the rescue in the form of continuous self-care that works hard so you don’t have to later on.

While work replenishes your financial muscle every month and sleep replenishes your brain every night, Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour range replenishes the biggest organ of the body - your skin - throughout the year. Surely that makes it worth the investment.

We can all agree that the winter season requires a little more attention to moisture than the other seasons. After all, our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we’ve been walking around with ashy ankles all day and didn't realise it until we got home. But finally, we can breathe a sigh of relief as we transition into brighter seasons and our skin looks forward to the recovery.

So it's time to add a trusty skincare companion to your routine...

2, 4, 6, EIGHT! Who do we appreciate?

Enter the universe of Eight Hour products that hydrate and replenish moisture as they protect, winning the battle over dry skin with ease.

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

This product has established itself as not only a staple but a cult fave packed by many in their handbags on a daily basis. As multifaceted as a junior content coordinator working as a community manager-meets-writer-meets-graphic designer for a startup, this award-winning skin protectant deeply moisturises and protects skin any time, any way you choose. Its versatile formula goes beyond moisturisation, working wonders to shape brows, add shine to cheeks, soothe dry hands, smooth cuticles and nails, and possibly even repair broken hearts (kidding… we think).

Jokes aside; here’s a TIP: Use it as an after-sun soother to calm sun-exposed skin.

And for those with sensitive skin, you can also shop the fragrance-free option.

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturiser

Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense for Face SPF 50 PA+++

If you need a hardworking SPF, go for the Eight Hour Crean Sun Defense. This lightweight, oil-free lotion helps protect your skin from sun exposure while hydrating for up to eight hours.
