vitamine c : The glow ally

What is vitamin C?


Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant naturally found in foods like citrus fruits. But only a small amount of vitamin C we consume will have an impact on our skin! That’s why many beauty products include synthetic forms of Vitamin C. L-ascorbic acid or THD ascorbate are the two types of vitamin C found in these formulations.


HOW DOES IT WORK?


Vitamin C is an antioxidant that allows melanin production to be adjusted. It can therefore reduce dark spot development and act like a natural brightener... plus prevent some signs of ageing!


BENEFIT


Brighten the skin and act as an antioxidant


CONCERN


Dull skin, dark spots

aha & BHA : The flawless exfoliator

What are AHA/BHA?


AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) are mostly fruit acids. These molecules include salicylic acid, glycolic acid and lactic acid. They can be extracted or synthetically- produced to be integrated in skincare formulas. You can find them in scrubs but also creams and serums to gently exfoliate the skin.


How does it work?


The AHA-BHA exfoliate dead skin cells from the skin. It can breathe more easily. The skin is therefore better prepared to absorb the benefits of other skincare products. Bye-bye dull complexion, blocked pores or wrinkles that seem more settled.


BENEFIT


Improve skin texture and fight imperfections.


CONCERN


Blemishes, large pores

DO’S & DON’TS


  • Keep your skin well moisturized.
  • Combine AHA and BHA for greater efficiency.

uv filters : The beneficial protective

What are UV filters?


UVA and UVB are two types of sunrays that go through the ozone layer. They might bring light and heat but ultra-violets A and ultra-violets B can cause some damage to the skin. Therefore, we need to protect ourselves when we stay out in the sun.


How does it work?


There are 2 kinds of “screens” against UV rays: a chemical screen that absorbs sunrays with the help of its actives; and the physical screen whose ingredients (zinc oxide, titanium dioxide) create a barrier for the skin.


BENEFIT


Protect the skin and prevent damage caused by UV rays.


CONCERN


Sun Exposure

DO’S & DON’TS


  • Apply sunscreen every day, even when the sun hides behind the clouds.
  • Sun care is always the last step of your morning routine before applying makeup. If you don’t have time, choose makeup products with SPF protection.
  • Check the expiration dates and retention time after opening your sunscreen when you sort through your beauty products.

HYALURONIC ACID : The pampering agent

What is hyaluronic acid?


It’s a molecule that captures water. It is found naturally in the body but its production decreases with time. Luckily it can be synthesised and integrated into various serums and skincare products to take advantage of its smoothing and antioxidant actions.


How does it work?


By jellifying water in the skin, hyaluronic acid fills in spaces between skin cells, which has the effect of restoring skin volume, density and elasticity. This is why it’s also an excellent moisturizer.


BENEFIT


Plump up, smooth and restore skin’s suppleness.


CONCERN


Tautness, plumping loss, dry skin.


Read more

DO’S & DON’TS


  • Combine it with another moisturizer for enhanced action: dry and sensitive skins will appreciate the gesture and the comfort.
  • Adopt it whatever you skin type is: it won’t irritate despite its “acid” name.

Pro tip


You’ve found the formula that agrees with you? Apply it regularly to enjoy its benefits.
