Get your skin glowing again!
You wake up and check your face in the mirror, hoping you’ll like what you see. But no, your complexion looks grey and dull, your skin seems lifeless and drained of its energy.
Don’t panic! By focusing on the right beauty routines and suitable formulas, and by paying a little attention to what you eat, your skin will very quickly be restored to all its former glory, and you’ll see yourself smiling again! We’re here to guide you.
Why is your complexion dull?
The grey veil on your skin isn’t an optical illusion. It’s real, and caused by a build-up of dead cells, which generate impurities and end up suffocating your skin. It is less smooth, appears dull, and loses its aura. And that can be even more frustrating when the signs of ageing set in, such as dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines, which create shadows on the face.
A dull and tired complexion is caused by various internal and external factors. The stresses of daily life churn up our emotions AND our epidermis. Fatigue, smoking, stress, an unbalanced diet or a polluted environment can all affect our skin day after day, altering its quality and therefore its radiance.
What’s the best way to get radiant skin?
If you want to give your skin the best chance of glowing again, make sure you’re using the right beauty routine with revitalising skincare and eating a healthy diet.
Show your skin you care!
Give your skin some love. Help it to breathe better and regain clarity by eliminating dead cells and pollution residue during a facial cleansing session, morning and evening. Go for enzymatic formulas that gently eliminate impurities while stimulating cell renewal.
Treat your face to a deeper cleanse at least once a week. Depending on your preferences and how sensitive your skin is, choose a gentle or granular scrub that will exfoliate the epidermis and unclog all the pores. It’s also a good way to get your skin ready for the next steps in your routine because it will be able to absorb the products more easily.
Pamper your skin
Take care of it to restore all its radiance. To achieve that, opt for skincare products with vitamin C: this powerful antioxidant is known to brighten the complexion and heighten its luminosity. Glycolic acid is another great ingredient. It’s a type of fruit acid derived from sugar cane, beets or grape extract, and it’s the most effective AHA for smoothing the skin texture!
And because well-hydrated skin means radiant skin, go for daily skincare products that are rich in hyaluronic acid. This amazing ingredient is the champion of hydration, and its plumping and smoothing action enhances the skin’s radiance.
What’s the secret to success? The right routine! Combine daily serums, weekly masks and intensive peeling treatments every three months for a new-skin effect all year round.
Feed it from the inside
A targeted diet helps to revive complexion radiance! Munch on foods that contain plenty of vitamin C: citrus fruit, blackcurrant, sea buckthorn, peppers, kiwi, guava and camu-camu, a small berry native to Amazonia which absolutely packed with vitamin goodness.
It’s also a good idea to stock up on fruit and vegetables with vitamin pigments. Which ones are they? They’re easy to spot, just look for their gorgeous orange colour: carrots, mangoes, apricots or melons rich in beta-carotenes are all perfect for creating cocktails of flavours and giving your skin a beautiful tint!
Protect to beautify
Helping your skin strengthen its natural defences means supplying it with everything it needs to fight against external aggression. When it’s protected, your skin is stronger and more radiant.
- Slather on skincare containing vitamins E and A, which are known for their antioxidant properties.
- Complete your radiance-boost regimen with natural superfoods such as goji berries, tea or the “star spices” of beauty such as paprika and turmeric.
- Take care of the microbiota in your gut and on your skin. A balanced microbiota means a radiant complexion! This collection of good bacteria defends the body by providing it with the prebiotics and/or probiotics it needs to protect itself.
- Get the benefits of vitamin E: our favourite! It’s essential for good epidermal health and is found in seeds, dried fruit and oils including rapeseed, wheat germ, sea buckthorn, almond, and others. So give your skin – and your diet – a new lease of life!
