Anti-aging rhymes with cleansing
An essential step... to be performed twice daily
Cleansing is not reserved solely for those who wear make-up. It also removes impurities accumulated throughout the day (or in the night), such as pollution, sebum, and sweat. It is essential, because skincare products are most effective on skin that is clean. Without this crucial step, impurities would clog the pores and suffocate the skin, preventing the active ingredients contained in your skincare product from doing their job.
Cleanse skin in three stages
There are no miracle solutions for effectively cleansing skin. You need to take your time:
- Apply your physiological Cleansing milk to dissolve make-up and impurities.
- Then use Thermal Spring Water to remove any residue.
- And finish with a physiological Soothing lotion to soothe and tone the skin.
Extra tip: remember to always warm your cleanser between your fingers before applying it, because products that are too cold can tighten pores, making cleansing less effective.
A precious beauty moment
Treatments designed to stimulate the skin
Once a week, enjoy a well-deserved beauty moment that will perfectly complement the daily action of the SUBSTIANE [+] Serum. Start with a gentle exfoliant, to remove dead skin cells, rejuvenate the skin, stimulate the microcirculation, and restore skin radiance without damaging or irritating more fragile skin. Then apply a moisturizing mask, twice a week, to boost your skin's moisture levels and keep it soft and beautiful.
Exfoliate, but don't strip
Facial scrubs contain grains that have an action on the skin when rubbed. To avoid irritation, avoid pressing down too hard. Perform a small circular massage working from the bottom upwards, paying particular attention to the central area of the face. For optimum results, cleanse your skin beforehand. And because active ingredients penetrate more easily after exfoliation, this is a perfect time for wrapping your skin in a generous layer of moisturizing mask to thoroughly replenish it.
The pleasure of make-up
Enjoy a sublime complexion by restoring skin volume and bounce
SUBSTIANE [+] Serum delivers visible results: skin is denser, fuller to the touch. Day after day, its support mechanism is strengthened. It remains plump, bright, and comfortable... a real treat when you want to wear make-up! Your skin is ready for the foundation of your choice. If you're looking for a truly beautiful result, respect this one rule: parsimony. Apply just a little, in small touches, for a natural, fresh, and luminous finish.
Avoid being heavy-handed
Opt for a cream foundation if you have dry skin, and for a mousse foundation if you have combination or oily skin. The shade should match your skin tone as closely as possible to avoid demarcation lines. After applying your usual skin cream:
- take a small amount of foundation and distribute it over the forehead, the contours of the nose, and the chin;
- blend by stretching the foundation as much as possible from the inside to the outside of the face; and
- set the foundation with a small touch of illuminating powder applied with a large brush.
Beauty comes from within
As for the rest of the body, your diet affects the quality of your skin. Opt for anti-aging nutrients to maintain your skin's health and preserves its youthful appearance. Vitamins A, C, and E (carrot, apricot, red pepper, guava, walnuts, etc.) stimulate collagen production, improve skin microcirculation, and protect cells against oxidation. Essential fatty acids (fatty fish, vegetable oils) help maintain skin suppleness and elasticity.
Drink without moderation
It is not always easy to consume fruit and vegetables in sufficient quantity every day. To make this easier, consider investing in a juicer. Consumed as juice, these essential foods are easier to ingest and in larger quantities. You can invent as many recipes as you like-the possibilities are endless. In addition, drinking a large glass of fruit and vegetable juice with each meal or snack will help you stay slim. It is also a great source of hydration if you have difficulties drinking as much as you should throughout the day.

If you want to take care of your skin, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is the perfect addition to your beauty regime, as it contains a high concentration of minerals and trace elements.
Twice weekly, soak a compress with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and place it on your face. Leave on for twenty minutes, spraying a little more water from time to time to keep the compress moist.
Extra tip: to decongest the eyes, place your spray in the refrigerator for a few hours then follow the same steps using two cotton pads.
