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.


TRUE. Cleansing removes not only make-up but all impurities accumulated throughout the day, such as pollution, sebum or 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.

YOUR THREE STAGES CLEANSING
RITUAL

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

Skincare 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.

TIP 2

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.

TIP 3

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;
  • set the foundation with a small touch of illuminating powder applied with a large brush.

BEAUTY COMES
FROM WITHIN

Feel-good foods

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.

TIP 4

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.

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.
