When it comes to skincare offerings, there's plenty to get lost in. How to build a routine that looks like us? And above all, how do we ensure that this routine actually benefits us?
To get there, you have to have two guiding threads in mind. The first is that the skin's needs between day and night are not the same. During the day, we protect. At night, we regenerate. This can help you determine the choices of your serums for example.
Then, of course, there is the nature of your skin. At the moment T, what is the main problem or vigilance on which you wish to intervene? Sometimes you have to match with the ranges. And it's also very fun to build your own facial care routine. It makes you even more unique.
In this post, we suggest you see more clearly to make your choice. We also took the liberty of recalling the order of application of care. Because sometimes you don't know what to do anymore.
Be sure that at the end of this reading, you will know how to choose your personal care and take pleasure in taking care of yourself.
1/ Distinguish the skin's needs between day and night
If the structure of the skin remains the same between day and night, its functions differ.
It is indeed day and night. 😉
During the day , our skin needs hydration and protection . For what ? The skin is our very first barrier against external aggressions. Cold, wind, pollution, UV, microbes, she takes care of everything for us. This protective barrier is ensured by several elements such as sebum, the hydrolipidic film and a specific acid PH . You obviously know that the skin itself is made up of several layers, including the epidermis on the surface.
For various reasons, this protective fortress may struggle to perform its functions. If the nature of the sebum is unbalanced, if the hydrolipidic film is insufficiently present, if the acidity of the skin is upset, various aggressions may occur.
This is where the application of our Perfect Pisum Radiance Activating Essence F90 can take on its full meaning to strengthen the cutaneous barrier of the skin of the face thanks to probiotics.
At night , the skin works on its regeneration . Moreover, the whole of the body lends itself to this game of cellular renewal. It is therefore essential to sleep well.
Muscle relaxation and rest lead to a favorable slowing down. The body can then devote itself to something other than metabolism. Cellular exchanges are multiplied, cellular replication at full speed with greater collagen production.
So, during the day, we choose facial care with a protective action. And at night, we pamper it to promote its regeneration.
2/ Distinguish your own personal needs
To find your skin routine, you obviously have to get in tune with your nature of the moment and your problems.
- normal skin
It is the uneventful skin type with a long-lasting balance. A small imperfection may appear on the face from time to time, but that's all.
For normal skin, ensure that hydration is maintained by using a cream such as our Hydra Malva Soothing Thirst Quenching Cream .
If you live in town, the Multi-Defense Detox Cream SPF30 Detox Officinale can be useful to protect your skin every day from UV rays and pollution which alter the homogeneity of your complexion.
- Oily skin
The problems of this skin are often imperfections linked to an overproduction of sebum. It takes on a shiny or reddened appearance and may appear thicker.
Depending on the nature of the imperfections, however, it can be dehydrated, especially if you have used products that are too abrasive.
We will therefore look for two actions: the regulation of sebum production and the harmonization of the complexion of the face by purification and healing of imperfections.
We suggest you work on the subject with our Pur Paradisi range concentrated in titrated extracts of Grapefruit and anti-inflammatory Zinc .
The must-have of this range is our Anti-Blemish Purifying Botanical Serum to treat in depth. Then you can reinforce the active ingredients with our Purifying Botanical Fluid . For combination skin lacking hydration, we advise you to go back to the Hydra Malva range after the serum.
Healing pimples may also leave redness and marks on your skin. We invite you to go to our Perfect Pisum range with titrated pea extracts to unify your complexion. The action of this range is to harmonize the complexion by playing on its natural glow.
It is obviously necessary to distinguish dry skin from dehydrated skin whose nutritional needs are different.
Dry skin is a constant problem of lack of fat. This leads to contact redness, irritation and sometimes stinging and painful tightness.
Use Hydra Malva care without delay, whose extracts of Mallow and White Willow will soothe the heat of dryness. In this specific case, use the Soothing Re-Hydrating Infusion Mask from the range. In thick application at night, it helps the regeneration of your overworked cells.
As you age, dehydration sets in more quickly. This is due to the loss of hyaluronic acid. In fact, it may be even more interesting to start treating your dry skin with the Lift Pinaster range.
The Botanical Anti-Aging Firming Serum contains low molecular weight hyaluronic acid to work on the epidermis quickly. In addition, the Redensifying Night Cream is perfect for calming and soothing dry and dehydrated skin. This cream is marvelous on application with an immediate relaxing sensoriality. Apply every night.
It is the skin reactive to the slightest gusts of wind. It reacts to all attacks with sometimes the appearance of redness. The inflammatory protective reaction tends to be too insistent.
For your sensitive skin, we advise you to match between the Hydra Malva and Detox Officinale ranges. During the day, make it a point to minimize attacks with antioxidants from the Detox range. Our Anti-Oxidant Detox Shield Botanical Serum is a real sentinel capable of repelling invaders. Always seal with proper hydration.
In the evening, we continue to detoxify and soothe reactivity as much as possible with the Regenerating Detox Night Cream which smoothes, relieves fatigue and limits the sensitivities of the day's aggressions.
3/ The order of skin care
The application of facial care is done according to a very simple rule: go from the lightest care to the heaviest care.
On a clean face of course, you will proceed as follows:
- Pre-serums : Start with a few drops of Radiance Activating Essence F90 all over your face.
- Serums : This is where you will treat your specific problems with all our botanical serums . If you have to choose between day and night, favor the evening application. Know that you can apply several serums.
- The Eye contour : It is often more fluid than the face cream. It is therefore more interesting to affix it first.
- The face cream : Day or night, it moisturizes or repairs but also protects the beneficial active ingredients of the serum. For us, it's the bare minimum we can do for our skin.
- Make-up : If you make up your complexion, we remind you that foundations are not moisturizers. Complete your skincare routine before applying make-up.
Are you still a bit lost in your care choices? Which products for my problems? We have thought up a great tool for you to create your personalized routine: our Diag'Beauté . In a few questions, you will know what your skin type is and what is interesting to work on to shine brightly.
Everything is often simpler than you think. The intention to take care of oneself is already wonderful. So also trust your instincts in your personal choices.
