Tips for a radiant complexion.

A dull complexion is recognised by its lack of uniformity: the skin appears lacklustre, blurred, almost a bit grey and tends to age the face. From lack of sleep to skin ageing, through stress, pollution, smoking, hormonal imbalance or poor toxin elimination: the factors contributing to a grey complexion are numerous.How can this be remedied? Here are our tips for regaining a radiant complexion.

Utilising antioxidant skincare treatments.

To regain a radiant complexion, incorporate acare product enriched with antioxidantsinto your daily beauty routine. Indeed, antioxidants are true benefactors for your face as they act as free radical destroyers, wrinkle fillers, pigmentation spot faders and radiance boosters, preventing premature skin ageing and combating cellular oxidation. This will effectively aid the epidermis in defending against external aggressions, thereby preserving the youthfulness and beauty of your skin for longer.

In the morning and evening, after removing all traces of impurities from your face, you might, for instance, apply the radiance face serum.Highly concentrated in Vitamin C (11%), it provides a real boost to dull and tired complexions. This treatment also contains 3% extract of Albizia Julibrissin. This Asian-origin plant revitalises the skin. Together, these ingredients help to slow down photo-ageing. In the evening, conclude your routine with the radiance botanical blend or the firming & radiance complex enriched with 5 vitamins. Packed with antioxidant active ingredients, these two treatments offer both preventive and corrective action against the appearance of signs of ageing and help to reveal the skin's radiance.

Performing exfoliations.

To regain a radiant complexion, it is recommended to gently exfoliate once a week. Indeed, this allows for a regular skin texture without flakes or dead cells.

We have developed a facial scrub made from micro-exfoliating grains derived from ground apricot kernels. The radiance scrub with rosehip oil and organic carrot macerate evens out the complexion and brings brightness. It is particularly suitable for dull, lacklustre skin, as well as dry and uncomfortable skin.

Always hydrate your skin.

Whether it's summer or winter, hydration is paramount. The more dehydrated the skin is, the more porous it becomes to the sun's UV rays, the duller it appears, and the greater the risks of sunburn and photoaging become.

Choose moisturising treatments according to your skin type (dry, oily, normal...) and apply them daily, morning and evening. For the face, you could, for example, use the hydrating facial serum which contains 3% hyaluronic acid. Light, this serum absorbs quickly, allowing you to then apply the face moisturising cream with 9 ingredients. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and organic coconut oil, it's a minimalist formula that hydrates and nourishes the epidermis. Its light and non-greasy texture is suitable for dry, normal and combination skin, even sensitive ones.

Whether it's summer or winter, apply sun protection.

Exposure to the sun's UV rays results in a thickening of the skin. The stratum corneum, composed of dead cells, becomes thicker. This is a natural protective phenomenon. Indeed, this thicker epidermis will better block UV rays. However, this accumulation of dead cells contributes to a dull complexion.

It is therefore recommended toapply a sunscreen every dayand to renew it regularly (every two hours) for optimal skin protection against the harmful rays of the sun, particularly when the sun is at its zenith, that is, between 11am and 3pm.

Favour certain vegetable oils.

Some vegetable oils are rich in carotenoids, compounds that boost skin radiance. This is the case with the buriti oil and the carrot macerate for example.

Ourburiti botanical blend is composed of 6 plant extracts rich in beta-carotene, including buriti oil and carrot macerate. It revives the complexion's radiance and provides an immediate subtle tan. Please note, this is not a self-tanner. Apply a few drops to the face and neck in the morning and/or evening as the final step in your usual facial care routine.

Adapting one's diet.

Various foods contain vitamins and nutrients that act on the epidermis to revive its radiance. Therefore, favour a diet rich in the following compounds:

  • Vitamin A: Recognised for stimulating cellular regeneration and slowing down skin ageing, this element is primarily found in fatty fish, butter, and milk (which should still be consumed in moderation);

  • The beta-carotene (or pro-vitamin A) : This component helps to stimulate the production of melanin evenly. Consuming it prepares the skin for tanning and gives a healthy glow. Many fruits and vegetables contain it (carrot, pumpkin, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, watercress, green salad, apricot, melon, peach, mango...);

  • The vitamins C and E (or tocopherol) : These potent antioxidants combat free radicals and also revive the skin's radiance. Vitamin E is found in fatty fish, the liver of lean fish (cod liver, monkfish) olive oil, walnut oil... Vitamin C, on the other hand, is mainly composed of citrus fruits, kiwi, blackcurrant, but also parsley and cabbage;

  • The selenium : This trace element provides a complementary action to vitamin E to protect cells from oxidation caused by free radicals. It is present in whole grains, seeds, and nuts.

Note: Foods such as processed meats or those offered in fast food restaurants are not recommended. It is wise to limit the consumption of alcoholic beverages which contribute to the dilation of blood vessels.

Rebalancing one's lifestyle.

The skin can regain its radiance by adopting a few simple daily tips. Firstly, hydrating the skin and the body in general is paramount. Drink frequently, as soon as you feel thirsty. Then, engage in regular physical activity. Sweating naturally eliminates toxins from the body and rejuvenates the skin. It is also recommended to get enough sleep to promote cellular renewal.
