Repair after summer

How to pamper your hair, your skin and your gaze after summer

Enjoying summer is true bliss, but it does take a toll on your bodies. Whether it’s sea water, sun, sand or even air conditioning, you go through a lot of wear and tear without noticing. Your skin gets thicker and drier from sun exposure, especially your face, your hair gets brittle and weak: your entire bodies adjust to the new summer weather and heat, only to be brought back to the cold of autumn. Plus, it’s back to work in September, which can lead to stress and exhaustion. How can we pamper yourselves when the joy of summer is gone?

FACE

Restore your skin's natural barrier


Your facial skin has a natural protection: the hydrolipidic barrier. It helps keep your face dewy and healthy but prolonged exposure to sun can damage it. Follow this simple ritual twice a week will help your skin to restore its natural barrier:

1. Remove makeup with a soft cleansing oil to prevent dryness and nourish your skin.
2. Apply a face scrub and massage it gently, then rinse off.
3. After your shower, apply a light facial oil.
4. Then, apply a rich moisturizer tailored to your needs.

Focus your gaze


Did you know that 80% of aging is due to sun exposure? Women’s skin is naturally thinner, especially around the eyes. Take extra care of that area and you’ll have a piercing, sensual gaze . Choose products with a  formula rich in oily ingredients to nourish and pamper your precious skin.We recommend to you the Divine Eyes which helps to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.

To relax your eyes and give your gaze a youthful, radiant look, you can perform a relaxing eye massage on  dry skin or after applying your eye cream.

Nutrition tips


It’s true, we are what we eat. So the better we eat, the better we look. Remember to eat foods rich in nutrients to fight free-radicals and reveal your inner beauty. Foods rich in beta-carotene such as carrots or sweet potatoes help regulate your skin’s pH, which avoids it being dry or oily, while antioxidant-rich foods such as green tea or citrus fruit help your skin produce more collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother skin. As always, this isn’t a quick-fix formula: you have to make these changes for good to start seeing a real change.

HAIR

Repair weak, breaking hair


Your hair goes through more damage in summer. Sea salt, chlorine, air conditioning and sand all contribute to drying your hair out. Once the damage is done, your hair dries out and loses its elasticity, resulting in breakage.

Repair it with extra moisture, starting with applying a hair oil before you shampoo, to ensure you don’t strip any more moisture from your scalp. Use adapted conditioner and a hair mask to give your hair a boost and set it on the right track for winter.

Appease oily hair


If left unattended, dry hair turns oily because your scalp is overcompensating by producing excessive sebum. It’s vital to protect your hair from excessive drying by using a rich oil care before shampooing. Prefer an oil with natural moisturizing active ingredients, like shea butter (a natural emollient, allowing hair to seal in moisture easily) or almond oil (rich in vitamin E, promoting moisture all the way down the hair shaft). You can also try a backwards cleansing regimen to regulate you hair oils.

How to care for your skin and keep your tan after summer


Suntanned skin, though it is often considered attractive and enviable, is actually your skin’s reaction to sunlight. Melanocytes – skin cells that produce melanin, the pigment that makes our skin darken – are stimulated with sun exposure, giving us a tan. But suntanned skin is also stressed skin: it is thicker, drier, and less elastic. So it’s important to moisturize it to keep it healthy and prolong your tan safely.

Shea Butter and Almond oil are your best allies to help to nourish, regenerate and relax  your skin after summer.

Beauty routine for supple skin


To keep your skin moist and supple, even when it is suntanned, you need to exfoliate before moisturizing. Choose a rich, buttery scrub for an extra-indulgent feel. Here’s how to do it, twice a week:

1. In the shower, apply body scrub on your whole body, in circular motions from top to bottom.
2. Then rinse and use the Almond Shower Oil to clean and preserve your skin moisturize.
3. Apply nourishing oil once you’ve dried off.
4. Finish using the Pure Shea Butter Organic Certified to enjoy 100% natural benefits.

WELLNESS

Try aromatherapy


Our olfactory sense is the only sense that is directly linked to two parts of our brain that deal with memory and emotion. As such, smells can have very powerful therapeutic qualities because they bypass our conscious mind. Aromatherapy is the art of using essential oils to quiet the mind and bring peace. It is most often practiced with an essential oil diffuser. Set it up in your office or in your home, and choose what oil you want to smell, in harmony with your mood and your tastes. You will feel calm effortlessly and fast.
