Why should you clean your skin?
This is THE question that is on everyone's lips... From our point of view, it is as much to ask why it is essential to wash your hands in the midst of the Coronavirus period... But because we are not the style to judge ( or so little), we thought we would still answer you. Throughout the day, your skin accumulates a coat of makeup, micro-particles of pollution and dead skin. An addition that is difficult to absorb for the epidermis, whose pores are “suffocated”. Obstructed, they no longer allow the sebum to evacuate properly, which inevitably leads to the appearance of imperfections and blackheads but also and above all to a phenomenon of premature skin aging. As you will have understood, skipping the skin cleansing step has never killed anyone but can still prevent the skin from properly absorbing the various active ingredients of the care. Result: it loses its shine and seems to be more easily at the mercy of the various external aggressions it encounters.
How often ?
It all depends on your skin's needs. If make-up removal and skin cleansing are to be done every evening before going to bed, in the morning, there is no need to bring out the heavy artillery. Just come and practice simple facial treatments to refresh your skin. This gesture also allows you to get rid of sebum or toxins accumulated during the night. The reflex to adopt? Apply a cotton pad soaked in tonic lotion all over the face. Beyond simply waking up your skin, it will provide it with the nutrients and active ingredients it needs to reveal its radiance. Just that !
The right gesture: opt for a natural, gentle and terribly effective cleanser
We grant you, it is not always easy to find the cleanser that is both perfectly calibrated to your type of skin, gentle and effective. Fortunately, Jean-Michel, our chief shaman, has developed THE product that will revolutionize your beauty routine: the facial cleansing stick. Enriched with Aloe Vera and hemp seeds, this one succeeds in the super daring bet of removing the various impurities accumulated on the surface of the skin, while overcoming the rest of make-up. With a 99% natural and vegan composition, this stick is suitable for all skin types and can be used at any age.
How to apply it?
Make-up removal and skin cleansing can be particularly long and restrictive steps on a daily basis (especially when you come home at 2 a.m. after a drunken evening). To save you precious minutes of sleep (yes, 10 minutes counts), we wanted to create a cleaner that is portable, practical and quick to use. Bibidi bobidi bou, the magic happens and the stick format has quickly established itself as the most suitable. To use it, nothing could be simpler, apply it in circular motions directly on damp skin, avoiding the eye area. Then rub your face lightly with your fingers to lather the formula and finish by rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Rich in omega-3 and omega-6, this stick fights against dehydration and promotes cell regeneration. Hemp seed powder helps remove impurities. Aloe Vera, on the other hand, softens and hydrates the skin with its various vitamins and minerals. Basically, this stick is THE boost you've always dreamed of to detoxify your skin while helping it regenerate in depth.
1 to 2 times a week: exfoliate the enzymatic scrub
Cleansing your face is good, completing this gesture with an enzymatic scrub once or twice a week is even better. For what ? Because this action will allow you to completely cleanse your pores in order to remove what is obstructing the flow of sebum in a gentle way. Dead cells, pollution residues… All these elements will peel off on contact with the fruit enzymes of the scrub and leave the epidermis perfectly clean. Are you still following us?
What about mechanical scrubs then?
If it has long reigned supreme over our bathroom, mechanical scrubbing is not recommended. What's wrong with him? Its aspect that is too aggressive for the skin and its hydrolipidic barrier. Rubbed against the face, these famous grains are abrasive because they are usually created from non-recycled hard plastic. A formidable formulation for the environment because these little balls pass through the meshes of the sewage filter nets and end up lining the bottoms of the oceans... And yes, we must not believe, we also know how to be serious when we want!
Toning lotion: the little extra that makes your skin love it
Often considered optional, the tonic lotion is nevertheless very useful for perfecting skin cleansing. This eliminates limescale residues deposited by tap water while offering a gentle micro-exfoliation. The little extra? There is a formula adapted to each type of skin and its problems. Enriched with rose water, Aloe Vera, chamomile or hyaluronic acid... You can choose the recipe that targets your desires and suits you best. That is the demand of the people ?
