Tips for smooth skin

A smooth skin is clear and without imperfections. It is therefore necessary to adopt the right gestures and the right products to tone the skin and help it face external aggressions.

​​​​​​​Make-up removal: a must

Perfect skin is cleansed methodically every day, morning and night. If impurities are not removed, the skin is rough and dull from the moment you wake up. Not only does makeup removal allow for a deep cleansing to remove all traces of cosmetic residue from the face, but it is also an indispensable gesture even if you do not wear makeup. In this unique step reserved for the well-being and comfort of the skin, the gestures are as important as the products used. Oil, milk, thermal lotion or a homemade cosmetic recipeIt is important to make your choice according to your skin type. The mixed and fatty skins are for example perfectly cleaned in-depth with a make-up remover gel, but it is not necessary to forget to rinse the face abundantly with tepid water after application.

​​​​​​​Moisturize yourself and your skin

The protection of the skin barrier function is the primary objective of a good hydration. Mechanical care is certainly a major asset for maintaining a smooth skin, but it is also important to hydrate from the inside by drinking enough throughout the day. The minimum requirement is 1.5 liters per day, depending on your level of physical activity and your body type. This is a reflex to take to maintain a luminous complexion, to optimize the renewal of the hydrolipidic film and to counter the appearance of wrinkles early on.

​​​​​​​The scrub: how to do it right?

Regular exfoliation not only activates blood circulation, but also eliminates the accumulation of dead skin and ingrown hairs. However, this gesture should not aggress the skin. Exfoliation should be done once or twice a week with a non-abrasive skin care product made of microbeads. Before applying the product - with gentle circular massages - it is important to moisten the skin. Exfoliation also allows the epidermis to absorb the care products more easily.

​​​​​​​Eating well to nourish the skin

The condition of the skin often manifests internal imbalances, including poor nutrition. The contents of the diet are important as nutrients help firm skin tissue and provide better cellular oxygenation. Deeper skin hydration can be achieved by eating fruits and vegetables every day, which are sources of live enzymes that are good for the skin. Protein is also important for replenishing essential fatty acids.

Fish, poultry and legumes are a good source. Good fats that maintain normal sebum production are found in virgin vegetable oils, such as olive oil or avocado oil. Like all fats, however, vegetable oils should be consumed in moderation, as one tablespoon provides about 90 Kcal. A healthy diet is also free of processed products, refined sugar that triggers premature cell aging and poor quality red meat.
