Stop everything! We reveal the secrets of a healthy skin, which will make you more beautiful. Who has never dreamt of having healthy, sparkling skin? Take care of yourself and gain self-confidence!
Determine your skin type
The skin is first of all 3 layers that serve to protect our organism. Each individual has a different skin: dry, mixed, oily, sensitive. It is composed of several layers of tissue.
The epidermis - The dermis - The hypodermis
The epidermis: Day or night creams are among the indispensable care products, as are cleansing gels and care products. Designed to be applied daily, creams have above all a role of hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.
The dermis: just like food supplements, serums, ampoules, concentrates and masks are of great help in providing the nutrients necessary for an increase in tone and vitality. The often watery textures allow a depth as close as possible to the dermis and penetrate very quickly.
The hypodermis also plays a role in the thermal regulation of our body since it protects us against heat and cold. Even more amazing: it protects our body against blows, because it absorbs shocks!
The skin is composed of dead cells, keratin and the horny layer. Combined with sebum and immune cells, this forms an effective protection against external aggressions. It forms a natural film and prevents impurities from penetrating the skin. However, sometimes this protection is no longer enough!
In order to use the most suitable care for your skin and your problem, you still need to determine the type of skin you have. So as not to mislead you, the best time to find out is in the middle of the day. At this time, your skin should reflect its true nature: is it shiny or dry? Also take into account all the environmental factors that surround you, and don't spare your current emotional state, which is reflected in the quality of your skin.
Easy to detect, because the pull is felt immediately after cleaning! Dehydrated skin has tighter pores and simply looks dry.
Does your skin shine? Do the pores of your face appear dilated? Do you have a rash? Your body is producing excess sebum!
Depending on the area of the face, the skin is either oily or dry. Look at your forehead, nose and chin, which will give you an indication of the type of skin you have. Often these are areas that tend to be oily. Cheeks are dry areas. The explanation for this is that pores become more dilated in some areas and tighter in others.
It may look dry, but more importantly, sensitive skin will become irritated very easily, especially if you use skin care products that are not adapted to your skin. If you are prone to itching, avoid skin care products containing perfume or alcohol, and prefer gentle skin care products made from organic ingredients and natural sources.
Did you know that? Men have thicker skin than women. Under the action of testosterone, skin tends to be oily because it produces more sebum. It also has larger pores. However, men are lucky, their skin wrinkles less quickly than women's: thickness and elasticity reduce the risk of cellular aging!
Cleanse your face
Every day, give yourself a pleasant and relaxing time to take care of your skin. Facial skin, being thin, is more fragile than your body's skin. For this reason, it is advisable to take care of it with a gentle and moisturizing cleanser to eliminate imperfections while soothing it.
The best time to cleanse your face is at the end of the day to eliminate impurities linked to pollution and to unclog pores. Start by cleaning the outside of your face and finish by cleaning the inside of your face to remove any excess skin.
- For oily skin: prefer the Bivouak organic face cleanserIt purifies and regenerates, eliminating all sebum and impurities.
- For normal to combination skin, use a gentle cleansing gel to be used daily.
We recommend the organic face cleanser Bleu De Peau
- For dry or sensitive skin, opt for the ultra gentle organic face cleanser 66°30 which is allergen-free and therefore non-aggressive. Dry and sensitive skin is skin that requires extra care. This extremely gentle and delicate care is the solution!
Get rid of dead skin with an exfoliator...
Everybody dreams of looking good. However, dead skin on the surface of the skin can give a dull effect that does not reflect good health! Facial exfoliation will remove dead cells, unclog pores, rid your face of excess oil and leave your complexion looking fresher and more radiant.
A well-cleansed and moisturized skin also prepares for shaving. The exfoliator allows for deep cleansing and prevents ingrown hairs by helping the hair to come out before the blade passes, so you have everything to gain!
Once or twice a week, opt for a scrub that will restore your skin's tone. It can be used in the shower, replacing your facial cleanser. Once the skin has been cleansed and exfoliated, it is advisable to apply a moisturizing cream for complete care.
Dry skin should be exfoliated with a product containing a moisturising active ingredient, and with an exfoliating spongeto cleanse your face thoroughly, gently and without irritating the skin. Simply wet the sponge with clear water and gently massage your face in a circular motion.
The organic exfoliating scrub Bleu de PeauWith its natural microbeads and extracts of plum and pomegranate seeds, it effectively removes dead skin and blackheads. This treatment is ideal for combination to oily skin. Free of paraben and silicone, natural and organic, this scrub is perfect for refreshing your skin and giving it pep back.
The exfoliator can be used all year round and is particularly recommended during the winter, as this is when your skin experiences the greatest change. Cell renewal tends to be slowed down, and your skin will become drier on contact with the cold. Taking care of yourself especially during this period helps cells to regenerate more easily, keeping your complexion fresh and healthy.
To keep a mine as beautiful and pure as it was during the good weather, exfoliation will allow you to restart the process!
Choose a suitable moisturizing cream
To look better and moisturize your skin, nothing is better than applying a moisturizer to your face! Indeed, your urban skin is often put to the test. Well moisturized, it will have better protection and will more easily resist all the external aggressions that can dry out your skin.
For bearded people, be aware that shaving creates additional stress on the skin, which exacerbates its sensitivity. So take better care of your face! After daily care, shaving will be easier and your skin will be less and less irritated.
For optimal health, consider choosing a chemical-free moisturizer. The components of this care will allow you to keep your skin in its natural state, not to disturb your cells, because let's not forget, the cream penetrates the skin and the body. We insist on the importance of using products of natural origin so as not to further damage your skin, which will take longer to repair itself afterwards. So you might as well start directly with good products!
If you have acne, a product containing benzoyl peroxide or essential oils (tea tree) is essential. Above all, even if it's not easy for some people, leave your pimples alone. Touching them spreads bacteria on your face and damages your skin. Use suitable products to make them disappear more quickly, soothe your skin and help it heal. Never use products containing alcohol or too much perfume. This could irritate your skin, which may produce sebum as a reaction.
Opt for a mask
Once every two weeks, don't hesitate to do a deep cleansing. In the evening, after your daily facial treatments, in the privacy of your own home, take the time to treat yourself to a green or white clay mask, or a shea butter mask. A treatment that will help to further eliminate the deepest impurities, and thus cleanse your skin. In your couch, by the fireplace and in front of a good film, relax for a few minutes while your mask takes effect on your skin.
This treatment can make the difference: purifying and cleansing, it is a very effective tool to have an even clearer, softer and healthier skin. The mask allows the active ingredients to penetrate more deeply. A treatment with clay or shea butter helps to regulate your skin cells for a return to normal, if it is excessively dry or oily.
Cleansing, exfoliating or moisturizing mask? Again, it all depends on your skin type!
Apply an organic serum to your face.
After your daily skincare routine, applying a serum to your face helps repair, regenerate, purify and soften your skin. At the same time, the serum hydrates your cells. The serum can be used every day, or a few days a week, as a complement to your moisturizer. Sensitive skin serum, problem skin serum, moisturizing serum, eye contour serum or hyper hyaluronic serum, your choice !
Improve your lifestyle
Our lifestyle is the main cause of unhealthy skin. Opting for a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, avoiding tobacco and alcohol as much as possible, doing sports several times a week, is simply the basis of healthy skin...
The treatment of the skin starts with internal hydration by drinking water throughout the day (between 1.5 and 2 litres per day). This simple action will help eliminate toxins from the body. Indeed, our body is 60% water, and each of our cells is inflated by this liquid.
Water has great virtues such as repairing cells, increasing the elasticity of the skin and hydrating our body. So if you're one of those who don't drink enough during the day, you now know what reflex to adopt to boost your beauty!
Good hydration also influences your mood and overall morale. It is well known that stress and negative emotions can be reflected on your skin. A well hydrated body during the day also allows for more restorative sleep cycles at night. Dermatologists say so! When you know the impact of sleep on the skin, it is to your credit that you choose to moisturize well. If you're tired of drinking water, consider green tea, an excellent antioxidant made up of polyphenols known for their incredible skin benefits.
It's easy to say goodbye to acne and dehydration and have a radiant glow all year round by making the right food choices. For starters, avoid the fatty acids found in pastries, deli meats, sandwiches and industrial pizzas that will disrupt the sebaceous glands and make your skin greasy.
Favour raw vegetables that are full of vitamins, accompanied by quality seasoning oil: wheat germ, olive, sunflower, flax, which will protect the skin from ageing. Dried fruits, almonds and hazelnuts bring a large number of trace elements to our body, useful for the proper functioning of epidermal cells.
Favour vegetables rich in water, such as cucumber and vegetables with good fat, such as avocado. Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardine, herring) are excellent food for skin that lacks suppleness and is dehydrated.
Illuminate your complexion
After having followed all our advice, to bring a luminous touch to your complexion, why not apply a "healthy glow" treatment to your face? Choose a blemish gel rich in natural active ingredients that intensely clarify your skin's imperfections while soothing it. Composed of aloe vera, neem and zinc, it also has a moisturizing and repairing effect.
Dark circles, which are omnipresent, can give you a dull and tired complexion. To restore a touch of freshness to your face and reduce puffiness under the eyes, nothing better (and more natural) than using a organic concealerIt is an anti-fatigue treatment that will firm and tone your skin.
