5 Tips for Preserving 
the youthfulness of sensitive skin

duration time 1 min read

Thinner and more fragile, sensitive skin is exposed to multiple forms of aggression every day. The cold, the wind, the sun, pollution, stress... these all weaken its defenses, affect its quality, and accelerate the aging process. Below you will find some simple tips for preserving your skin’s youthful appearance. 

TIP 1:
MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, AND MOISTURIZE AGAIN!

We cannot say it enough—hydration is the key to beauty! The skin is made up of 70% water, and when it is not supplied with water the epidermal cells are destroyed. The single most important step in effectively moisturizing your skin is to make sure you drink enough.

TIP 2:
SPRINKLE YOUR PLATE WITH A LITTLE ANTI-AGING MAGIC

Beautiful skin is skin that is well-nourished, literally! Eat foods rich in antioxidants, trace elements, and essential fatty acids on a daily basis, i.e. salmon, seafood, nuts, citrus fruits, mushrooms, etc.

TIP 3:
ADOPT DAILY RITUALS

The more you do to keep your skin young, the better. Morning and evening, begin by thoroughly cleansing, then apply specific day and night care. Do not forget the eye contour and lips, which need special attention. Once a week, treat yourself to a scrub and a face mask to effectively complete your beauty regime. Finally, remember to protect your skin from the sun all year round.

TIP 4:
PUT SOME SPORT BACK IN YOUR LIFE

Stress and overwork cause oxidative stress and accelerate skin aging. To solve this problem, learn to go easy on your nerves. Regular physical activity will help you unwind, and breathing exercises and meditation will help you remain calm.

TIP 5:
PLAY AT SLEEPING BEAUTY

At night, while your body rests, your skin works overtime. Cellular regeneration and repair accelerate, and your microcirculation is activated. This activity is at its maximum between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. For a truly restorative sleep, try to go to bed before midnight and sleep for at least 8 hours.

CLEANSING IS KEY IN E
YOUR ANTI-AGEING RITUAL.

TRUE

Cleansing removes not only make-up but all impurities accumulated throughout the day, such as pollution, sebum, sweat. Skincare products are most effective on clean skin. 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.

TIREDNESS CAN SHOW
ON THE SKIN AROUND YOUR EYES.

TRUE

With tiredness or age, blood and lymph microcirculation around the eyes may slow. The very thin skin around the eye contour readily reveals the marks of poor vascularization or inadequate lymph drainage. This is what provokes the appearance of signs of tiredness, such as shadows or puffiness.

THE SUN IS YOUR
SKIN'S BEST FRIENEMY.

TRUE

Multiple environmental aging factors stem from the very energy source that gives us light and life: the sun. The effects of UVB have been known for decades: sunburn and skindamage. But UVB is just one facet of sun-induced aging. Present all year round, even in cloudy weather, UVA and infrared rays penetrate deep within the skin, degrading its essential building blocks.
