Beauty rituals that are good for our skin

Beauty rituals that are good for our skin

1. Hydration

Both internally and externally, all skin types require hydration to maintain their suppleness, nurture the hydrolipidic film for skin defense against external aggressors, and promote cell renewal. Dehydrated skin can become dull, prone to fine lines due to dehydration, and may also develop imperfections.

  • Drink enough water daily to hydrate from within. Daily hydration is essential not only for cell hydration and skin health but also for aiding the body in eliminating accumulated toxins.
  • Take care of your skin externally by moisturizing it using a suitable cream based on your skin type: all skin types require hydration, including oily skin. We recommend applying your skincare products with pressing motions, gently tapping on the face to stimulate skin cells and promote product absorption.

    2. Double cleansing 

    Because our skin accumulates pollution, sebum, and other impurities throughout the day, it's essential to properly cleanse it every evening before bedtime to allow for optimal cell renewal overnight.

    Double cleansing involves cleansing your face in two steps: firstly, using an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup and accumulated impurities. Then, using a gentle water-based cleanser that respects the skin's pH to remove any remaining makeup residue and deeply cleanse the pores while respecting the skin without stripping it. Your skin is then ready for the evening skincare routine.

    3. Facial massages

    Facial massage helps promote blood circulation and stimulate collagen production, which decreases with age, thus reducing the signs of aging to maintain firmer skin and redefine contours. Self-massage exercises can be performed using your hands or accessories such as the Gua Sha. They should be performed on clean and hydrated skin. We particularly recommend our Lucent Oil or Comforting Cream for your massage exercises.

    Although self-massage techniques can be practiced at home, it's recommended to consult a qualified esthetician for personalized advice. Depending on your specific concerns and morphology, an expert can guide you towards the most appropriate exercises and help maximize the benefits for your skin.

    4. Serum

    Rich in active ingredients, the serum enhances the action of the cream to provide targeted care addressing specific skin concerns such as wrinkles, pigmentation spots, dull complexion, or imperfections. To be applied after toning lotion and before moisturizer, the serum can be used morning and/or evening to maximize its benefits.

    5. Facial oil

    Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, facial oils help limit water loss, prevent dehydration, and strengthen the skin's barrier function. Due to their affinity with the skin, they also facilitate the diffusion of active ingredients by penetrating the skin layers. All skin types can benefit from their effects, including oily skin for which they can provide regulating function.

    6. Exfoliation

    Once or twice a week, exfoliation removes dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of our skin, encouraging cell renewal to improve skin texture and achieve a more radiant and uniform complexion. It also allows the skin to better absorb subsequent skincare products for better results. There are currently different types of exfoliants on the market such as physical scrubs (mechanical exfoliation), enzymatic exfoliants, or liquid chemical exfoliants (exfoliating acids).

    7. Sunscreen protection

    As the final step in the daytime skincare routine, sunscreen protects the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays and helps prevent certain skin-related diseases. Although less prominent at certain times of the year, UV rays are present year-round, so it's recommended to protect yourself throughout the year whenever you are exposed.
