5 Tips To Get Glowy Skin This Summer

Summer is here, and you know what that means? Time to plan out all the fun summer activities and look forward to the warm, sunny weather! It's time to scrub away your dull, winter skin and start your summer with healthy and glowy skin! 

Read on for our five tips on how you can prep yourself for that summer glow. 


1. Cleanse in the morning and at night

This is an obvious one, but we just can't stress enough how important this step is. Ensure that you wash away the sebum and impurities from your skin to prevent dirt from building up and causing acne. For convenience, grab yourself an all-in-one cleanser like the CLEF Hydrating Cleansing Gel. It is suitable for daily use on all skin types and is able to remove makeup residue as well! 


2. Exfoliate your skin at least once a week

One of the best ways to reveal the glow within your skin is by exfoliating, as scrubbing off the dead skin cells will unveil a smoother and clearer surface of the skin. Use either a physical or chemical exfoliator two to three times a week or once a week if you have sensitive skin. 


3. Look out for brightening and protective skincare ingredients

Switch your skincare products to those that contain brightening ingredients such as Niacinamide, Vitamin C, or Chamomilla Recutita extract. CLEF's Copper Peptide Mask contains Chamomilla Recutita that is beneficial in reducing photodamage from UV exposure. This makes it the most ideal mask to use this summer. 



4. Always remember to reapply your SPF

It is extremely crucial to wear SPF daily, especially in the summertime. Experts recommend a sunscreen that is at least SPF30 or higher. This will help protect your skin against the harmful UV rays when you're spending your days out in the sun. Don't forget to frequently reapply your sunscreen throughout the day as well! 



5. Enrich your diet by including foods that are rich in antioxidants

Studies have shown that what you eat can contribute to your skin's glow. Increase intake of foods such as spinach, berries, dark chocolate, and nuts as they are high in antioxidants and can help in protecting skin cells from UV damage. By incorporating these foods in your daily meals, it will promote radiance and reduce dullness on your skin.

Our Journey

CLEF’s Story


The Spark

Various skin concerns plague those closest to us, and the lack of accessibility to skincare products without harsh or downtime-inducing ingredients pushed us to develop our own products that are free from the stress of damaging their delicate skin further.

The challenge began as we set out to look for a lab willing to realise our vision. After meeting 24 potential investors and 12 manufacturers, one finally agreed to work with us, as we began developing our first product— the Copper Peptide Mask.


Black & Gold

After 1.5 years, our Copper Peptide Mask was finally ready— a leakproof sheet mask soaked in a soothing serum that repairs early signs of aging to nurture a youthful complexion, and is suitable even for sensitive skin, eczema and angioedema.

The mask became a hit locally, which paved the way for us to develop our next Anti-Aging product: the Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel.



Going abroad to the US, UK, Canada and Europe, we brought along the new and gentle Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, garnering fans overseas. Back home, major beauty retailer Sa Sa welcomed CLEF onto its shelves, making way for us to provide solutions offline across Malaysia.



Blessed with media attention i.e. The Sun Daily and Vulcan Post, we expanded into body care with the Relaxing Body Lotion, and marched our Anti-Aging Series forward with the Radiant Gold Essence. With an ensemble of solutions, we made our Shopee Mall debut and began collaborating with various creators, local brands and media outlets including Astro Go.



Kicking off the year with the Pomegranate Instant Calming Mask which immediately became a crowd favourite, we then completed the long-awaited Anti-Aging Series, created makeup assist products Potato Instant Hydrating Mask and Skin Perfecting Sunscreen, and released the now sold-out Nourishing Body Lotion. We concluded the year with a fully-expanded team in the Kuala Lumpur office, and an established presence amongst online skincare enthusiasts.

As CLEF products are also made available in major stores Aeon Wellness and Watsons, we slowly found our footing in becoming a household brand for locally-produced clean skincare products.


Facing Forward

As we’re on the way to launching our very own physical store, our mission to bring forward solutions for all skin types is far from over. 

Look forward to brand-new product lines for specific skin types and exciting offline events in the near future!
