Summer: Beauty Routines to Adopt

When the mercury rises, a change in beauty routine is necessary. In summer, the main challenge is to achieve long-lasting makeup despite the humidity and heat, all without any shine. Preserving the skin's hydration is also important. Let's focus on the beauty practices to adopt during the summer season.

Topics:

Apply a sun protection.

Sun protection is an essential addition to your skincare routine in the summer. UV rays are responsible for photo-ageing of the skin and accelerate the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmented spots ... Therefore, it is important to protect your skin daily.

Comprised of a combination of mineral and organic filters, our sun creams (SPF 30 and SPF 50) provide broad-spectrum UVA UVB protection without leaving white traces. The face creams (SPF 30 and SPF 50) are enriched with aloe vera (INCI: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder) and hyaluronic acid (INCI: Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid) to hydrate the skin and with karanja oil to prevent photoaging.

Exfoliating one's skin.

Exfoliating your skin helps to remove the dead cells that have accumulated on the surface of the epidermis and promotes cellular renewal. This makes your complexion more radiant and enhances your tan. It is recommended to exfoliate once a week during the summer.

Formulated withsweet almond oil (INCI: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil), known for its nourishing properties, andsuper lavandin essential oil (INCI: Lavandula Hybrida Herb Oil), recognised for its regenerative and healing virtues, our nourishing body scrub rids the skin of dead cells thanks to the micro-grains of apricot kernels. Exfoliated and nourished, the skin is soft, supple and comfortable.

You can also utilise our radiance facial scrub with rosehip oil (INCI: Rosa Canina Fruit Oil), enriched with micro-grains of apricot kernels (INCI: Prunus Armeniaca Seed Powder), which unclogs pores and promotes cellular renewal, for smooth skin and a uniform and luminous complexion. The small size of the grains used allows this treatment to respect the skin and exfoliate it gently.

Use mattifying wipes.

Matifying wipes prove to be useful in summer. They serve to eliminate the excess sebum produced when it's hot. Their use prevents the skin of the face from shining. The right time to use matifying wipes is in the morning. Simply dab your face with them before proceeding to the various stages of makeup.

It is also possible to make quick touch-ups during the day. The wipes leave the skin mattified, especially the T-zone, without altering the makeup. The forehead is no longer shiny.

Opt for tinted serum over foundation.

In summer, the skin quickly becomes dry, tight, and tends to lose its radiance. For these reasons, skin hydration is essential. To save time during your beauty routine, do not hesitate to opt for our tinted serum. The vitamin C (INCI: Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate) it contains is a powerful antioxidant active ingredient, known to brighten the complexion, reduce pigmentation spots, and slow down the photo-ageing of the skin. The squalane (INCI: Squalane) has a structure very similar to sebum, so it quickly penetrates the epidermis. This lipid supply helps to repair the skin's hydrolipidic film and prevent the body's water from evaporating. The skin remains hydrated and comfortable for longer. Aloe vera (INCI: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice) on the other hand, has a high water retention capacity, helping to combat dehydration and soften the epidermis. Thanks to this treatment, the epidermis remains hydrated, even in summer.

Apply a translucent loose powder.

It is recommended to avoid the compact powder during summer. Indeed, it will leave a film on your face if you suffer from excessive sweating. For a natural finish while avoiding shine, the use of a mattifying loose powder is appropriate. This care allows you to touch up makeup without adding colour when the face shines during the day. A transparent version leaves neither stain nor unsightly mark.

Used in conjunction with foundation, loose mattifying powder prevents makeup from quickly running due to the effects of humidity and heat. It is applied all over the face, with emphasis on the nose, forehead and chin. These oily areas overproduce sebum and tend to sweat in the summer.

Equip yourself with a mist.

A burst of freshness is delightful in the summer. To enjoy this, one simply needs to regularly spray a mist of water on the face. This treatment helps to maintain a radiant and shine-free complexion. It also serves to hydrate any potential dry areas.

Do not neglect the makeup setting spray

Applied at the end of the beautification process, the setting spray ensures the longevity of makeup, even in warm weather. For instance, it prevents concealer from settling into wrinkles. Some setting sprays can maintain makeup up to 40°C. Other formulas include a protection factor offering additional defence against solar radiation.
