But why do I have acne at the start of the school year?

AIE Aie Aie…. Since you returned from your summer vacation, your face has started to bud…. Every morning, a little pimple…. Gone are the pretty holiday faces that make your eyes and cheerful smile pop. A usual phenomenon, the start of the school year often marks the appearance of imperfections . For acne-prone skin, it's sometimes a return to reality. And you even have the impression that the damage is even greater. But what happened? Since we don't really have the morale to leave summer and long evenings behind, can we stop the progression of these spots? The answer is yes, but on the condition that you consider this problem in its entirety. To act against pimples, local treatments are good reflexes, but they are not everything. Maximize your lifestyle thoroughly and review your habits upon your return. You need to act on diet , sleep , stress and the balance of your microbiota.
We explain how to get there in this new post. The main explanation for the imperfections of the start of the school year. In summer, there are four phenomena that can explain the appearance or return of imperfections on your face at the start of the school year.


In the middle of summer, we sweat and that's completely normal. The body regulates its thermal balance through breathing and perspiration. It is also imperative not to hinder these processes with antiperspirants. Sweating prevents heat stroke and thermal discomfort. However, activation of the sweat glands sometimes results in clogged pores. As long as these are blocked by sun cream or a protective mask and imperfections occur….

2.Exposure to the sun

To protect themselves from UV radiation, skin cells will produce keratin and its outer layer, the stratum corneum, will thicken. At the moment, the appearance of the skin improves because the pimples to germinate remain deep down. The obstructions due to perspiration mentioned above are also “blocked” under the skin. Then, with the return to normal, the tan disappears, dead cells will be eliminated and imperfections appear. It is often said that skin prone to blemishes should not be exposed to the sun. We are not so categorical. It is imperative to understand that we must look at the main causes of imperfections and treat them, in particular through IN and OUT care and optimization of lifestyle.

3.Fatigue and bohemian life

Other factors contribute to the appearance of spots at the start of the school year. Summer is conducive to a change in diet. We sometimes eat sweeter foods, we picnic with more starchy foods. Long live pastries, fries, pizzas, cereal bars, aperitif spreads, ice creams, caramelized peanuts, etc... We also party a little more and evenings with friends are perhaps a little more watered. There are also times that change. We get up later but sometimes because we sleep less and go to bed at dawn. There are starry nights, restaurants with friends, concerts and festivals. The heat also makes it difficult to sleep. We reassure you. You have the right to indulge in all these summer pleasures without feeling guilty. They also add charm to summer and contribute to the Dolce Vita of the holidays. On the other hand, they can obviously explain a certain fatigue and cause small imperfections on the face.

4. Back-to-school stress

And then there is the recovery. The pace slows down in summer. Even more in August. At work, the city streets become empty and we get to the office more quickly. The phone rings less and the mailbox is clean. Colleagues are cool and relaxed. Whether you're a teenager or an adult, we can all feel overwhelmed when getting back to work. Returning from vacation is often accompanied by multiple anxieties. The pace resumes and a form of underlying challenge as well. The rhythm returns suddenly, without rehabilitation. There are also questions. It is often at the start of the school year, after the long holiday break, that we realize that what we were doing no longer suits us. And right now, we have to go back. The relationship with the skin? Stress, excess cortisol, lack of rest, etc. The skin reddens and becomes more inflamed.

Little focuses on healthy living


You're going to get back to normal and that's already going to have an impact. Give pride of place to fall vegetables and fruits. Take a course of good vegetable oils rich in omega 3 and limit refined sugars . We told you this a little above, but the idea is to adopt global support for this problem. Be as kind as possible to yourself by quickly adopting good tranquilizing habits.


In the same way, we return to a normal consumption of 1.25 liters of water per day . You can take a small course of good green tea at a rate of 50cl per day for 3 weeks. Prefer Lapacho or Rooibos in case of iron anemia.


We return to a gentle pace with nights of sleep of at least 7 hours minimum. And take the time to nap on the weekend for 20 minutes.


It's time to reintroduce walks in large parks or in the forest. You need to connect deeply with calm, nature and serenity.

Our Saeve solutions 

First, we take care of ourselves from the inside.

Start a course of our PUR PARADISI Gummies . Our gums have been developed for the synergistic action of several specific active ingredients. There are plants to allow the skin to eliminate in depth such as titrated extracts of Burdock and organic Nettle . There is Zinc citrate for its regenerating and healing effect. We added our favorite ingredients: organic Birch Leaf Extract and concentrated organic Chaga extracts . We love them so much. They have been master allies for 4 years now to help the skin detoxify, regenerate, brighten, harmonize and soothe.

The best part of our Gummies ? Microorganisms from 4 specific strains of the skin: L-Caséi, L-Acidophilus, L-Rhamnosus and Streptococcus Thermophilus to work to maintain the balance of the intestinal microbiota. By direct effect, the skin receives immediate benefits. We recommend a 3-month treatment to get it right.

At the same time, we take care of our skin externally:

Externally, we invite you to rid the skin of dead skin and sunscreen residue by using a gentle cleanser. Consider our PUR PARADISI Purifying Cleansing Gel . The presence of Zinc salts , Burnet and especially titrated extracts of Pink Grapefruit regulate excess sebum and cleanse deeply without attacking the skin. The key to success is in our Purifying Anti-Imperfection Botanical Serum PUR PARADISI . The advantage of a serum is the concentration of active ingredients available in a very small weight, 3 to 4 drops are enough for visible results.

The first thing you will notice with our serum is a general calming of redness and a reduction in inflammation. The pimples are less painful. The skin will also be much less shiny. The serum contains elements capable of regulating seborrhea such as Mandarin Nobiletin . Marine Ferments retexturize the skin and make its texture finer and more harmonious. Finally, we treat in depth with the titrated Grapefruit. This serum can be accompanied by the Purifying Botanical Fluid from the same range for light hydration or by our Hydra Malva Soothing Quenching Cream . If your skin needs comfort because it's dehydrated, this solution should help.
