Have you noticed how much our skin can change in the summer? Everything is changed. From its comfort to its reactions, the skin must adapt to the drier and warmer climate. There are also swimming in the sea with salt and chlorine or bromine from swimming pools. Sometimes the wind, the sand, the pollen….
Humans struggle with change. As we like routines, it is sometimes difficult to admit that we have to adopt a new one during the summer. And then, as we know, in the middle of summer, we settle into a slower mood. And sometimes you even give up skincare.
We have nothing against letting go. It is even advisable to take a care break one day a week. Do not apply anything so that the skin educates itself a little.
But in summer, it's not really a good idea. Too many parameters can make the skin suffer and make it fragile.
So to avoid having a gray complexion at the start of the school year, we adopt a new summer routine now!
In summer, the skin is more quickly clogged
Our skin is more easily saturated in summer.
First, it's about perspiration . In summer, it is more important with the risks that this entails on imperfections. With the heat waves of recent years, drops of sweat bead more easily on the face. It is also very unpleasant.
As you are very good students, you have understood the need to wear sunscreen products , especially during the holidays with tanning sessions. As soon as your skin is exposed to the sun, it is really imperative to protect yourself from UV rays through creams with a high SPF index. That said, it's extra thickness for the skin.
We will therefore focus on cleaning the skin . And not just at night. Indeed, the heat also makes us sweat at night.
We therefore suggest that you help your skin get rid of impurities:
- In the morning, activate our Perfect Pisum Zero Flaw Skin Foam . For what ? Because its light exfoliating action knows how to get rid of anything that can clog pores. Dead cells, excess sebum, pollution, etc…. Apply it on dry skin in circular motions, leave on for 30 seconds. Rinsing is quick and easy. The skin is freshly clean.
- In the evening, opt for our Hydra Malva Cleansing Gel with titrated Mallow extracts . It is also easy to use and rinses off like nothing with cool water. No additional hot shots in the bathroom.
If you suffer from skin imperfections, you can opt for its little brother, the Pur Paradisi Purifying Cleansing Gel . Its action is conducive to unclogging pores and regulating sebum.
In summer, the skin becomes dehydrated
In summer, when it's very hot, you're thirsty, aren't you? Well, it's the same for your skin and more particularly for the skin of the face.
Because we have noticed that you are more attentive to the skin of your body after exposure to the sun. You have understood that to preserve the tan, you have to stay hydrated. The same vigilance must be exercised with the skin of your face.
In summer, our little face becomes dehydrated due to high temperatures , but also swimming.
Chlorine, salt, sand, wind, all these factors combine to dry out the skin. Not only does it tug, but it gives it an aged look. And for good reason, dehydrated skin begins to mark more. This creates small wrinkles that can deepen over time.
We are aware that in hot weather, you do not want to apply too rich and heavy care. Long live fine textures with express application. Our Hydra Malva Soothing Thirst Quenching Cream is made for you. On application, this cream instantly melts into water.
A need for more intense nutrition? Test our Pinaster Multi-Corrective Lift Cream with powerful anti-wrinkle action thanks to maritime pine extracts and fragmented hyaluronic acid.
And feel free to abuse our botanical serums before creaming. Our serums are featherweights that stretch in one step. No greasy or heavy feeling.
In summer, no doubt, we bet on our iconic Hydra Malva Soothing Hydrating Botanical Serum . Pure hyaluronic acid of vegetable origin allows deep hydration in a fraction of a second without discomfort.
More free radicals in summer
In summer, as we know, the action of free radicals is more important. We advise you to have a measured relationship with them. Do not deprive yourself of light or sun because it is good for your health. However, be reasonable.
However, there are situations where you can't help but spend time outdoors. Maybe, do you do sports professionally or intensively? Do you have a job where you work outside ? Waitress, hostess, lifeguard. Do you also live in the mountains ? It is known that UV radiation is stronger due to altitude.
In this case, we suggest you look into our Detox Officinale range. This range is the combination of several active ingredients capable of minimizing the daily aggression of UV rays.
Immunox® patent with organic Birch sap and organic Chaga , Dandelion extracts titrated in free radical-scavenging fructans, apple phloretin, all these concentrated ingredients fight against oxidative stress.
So, do you have your summer routine?
