Heat: Tips for maintaining a radiant complexion?

Heat puts the body, and especially the skin, through a tough test. During the summer, the temperature rises, which promotes sweating and dehydration. Our complexion tends to become dull. Follow our advice to maintain a radiant complexion despite the heat.

Topics:

Tip No. 1: Hydrate your skin.

Whether it's summer or winter, hydration is paramount. Indeed, the secret to healthy skin lies in preserving hydration. If this is the case, the skin better captures light and displays a radiant appearance. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, tends to have a dull complexion accompanied by feelings of discomfort.

To maintain skin hydration despite the heat, it is essential to regularly drink water: it is recommended to drink 1.5 L of water per day. The application of dedicated skincare products can also help. For instance, you can start by applying our hyaluronic acid hydrating serum followed by our 9-ingredient face moisturizer which also contains hyaluronic acid (INCI: Sodium Hyaluronate), a molecule known for its highly hydrating virtues. It can retain up to a thousand times its weight in water and helps to hydrate the skin's epidermis. This skincare product is suitable for all skin types, whether it's oily, dry, or normal.

Tip #2: Exfoliate your skin.

Exfoliating your skin once a week is a practice to incorporate into your routine for a radiant complexion. This helps to remove dead cells and flakes, resulting in a smoother and more even skin texture.

Our radiance facial scrub brightens the complexion and reveals the skin's natural glow. It is enriched with organic rosehip oil (INCI: Rosa Canina Fruit Oil) which is regenerative and unifying, as well as with organic carrot macerate (INCI: Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract), an excellent active ingredient for a healthy glow. The apricot kernel powder (INCI: Prunus Armeniaca Seed Powder) allows for gentle exfoliation.

Tip #3: Use antioxidant treatments.

Environmental factors such as pollution, UV rays, tobacco, or alcohol promote the formation of free radicals. These reactive and unstable species attack our DNA, proteins, or cells and are the root cause of skin aging. As a result, our skin becomes duller and shows wrinkles or fine lines. Therefore, it is recommended to use antioxidant skincare products that will capture these free radicals and allow the skin to regain its radiance.

We have developed an antioxidant capsule that helps to prevent the onset of wrinkles and enhance the radiance of your skin. You can apply the antioxidant serum daily, which contains ferulic acid and ashitaba extract , followed by the antioxidant cream enriched with carotenoids and organic lavender extract to protect the skin from cellular oxidation.

Once or twice a week, you can also let the brightening mask with yellow clay and organic turmeric sit for 10 minutes to refine your skin texture and brighten your complexion.

Tip #4: Apply Sunscreen.

In the summer, exposure to UV rays results in an increase in the thickness of the stratum corneum, which is composed of dead cells. This is a natural protective response against this type of radiation. However, this leads to an accumulation of dead cells on the skin's surface, causing a dull complexion.

For this reason, it is recommended to use a sunscreen daily, which will protect the skin from UV rays and maintain the skin's radiance.

Note: It is recommended to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours and to avoid sun exposure between 11 AM and 5 PM.

Tip #5: Facial Sauna for Radiant Skin.

To hydrate and even out the complexion, it is recommended to perform a facial sauna. Originating from Japan, this method involves boiling demineralized water in a basin and placing the face above the steam for 5 to 7 minutes. The moist heat unclogs the pores and eliminates all impurities.

Subsequently, the skin will easily eliminate sweat and toxins during perspiration. Thanks to the facial sauna, the skin texture softens, becomes smooth, and the complexion will remain radiant even under intense heat.

Tip #6: Makeup to even out the skin tone.

It is possible to unify and give a radiant effect to the complexion with makeup. Applying foundation is not always easy in the summer. The heat can quickly cause the makeup to run and risk clogging the pores. As with moisturizing cream, it is important to lighten the texture of your foundation by mixing it with a glass of water. It will unify the complexion without greasing the facial skin. The latter will present a radiant appearance without the risk of the foundation running due to the heat.

To enhance its durability, you can spray on a setting mist. This spray helps to improve the longevity of the makeup even during high temperatures. Colorless, it allows for a matte or semi-matte finish.

For a more radiant complexion, you can rely on the illuminating concentrate, which can be mixed directly with your moisturizer or your tinted care for a luminous and natural finish. The vitamin C it contains is a powerful antioxidant active ingredient, known to brighten the complexion, reduce pigmentation spots, and slow down the photo-aging of the skin.
