Preparing your skin for summer

- Categories : Beauty Tips

While summer days are coming, who doesn't want to enjoy the sunshine? Be careful, it can also damage your skin! Here are our tips to prepare your skin before summer!

How to take care of your skin this summer

In summer, your skin also deserves some rest. Less makeup, lots of vitamin D... On holidays, stick to basics and let your skin breathe! To do this, you need to adapt your skin care routine to the season. 

Protect your skin from the sun

To facilitate its protection, there are some sprays as effective as a sun cream since they generally have an SPF 50. Easy to apply, their light and non-greasy texture dries quickly. Another advantage: more than just protecting the skin against UV, these sprays are enriched with antioxidants and matifying and hydrating agents. 

Refresh your skin

With the heat, your skin needs to be refreshed. In this case, thermal spring water is effective in keeping your skin fresh, hydrated and radiant! Thanks to its softening and regenerating action, it soothes tightness and calms skin redness that can appear during warm days. It also strengthens the skin's resistance to external aggressions. Thermal spring water can be used at any time of the day and can easily be carried in your handbag to stay fresh 24 hours a day!

Choose hydrating care products

Once or twice a week, offer your skin an hydrating care to help restore its hydrolipidic film. Dryness, irritation and redness are reduced and the skin is relaxed, recharged, supple and plump when you wake up. 

Our powder facial cleansers will be perfect to offer nutrition and hydration to your skin. 

If you have an oily skin, our Charbon Purifiant natural cleanser is for you. Yes, powders have absorbing and regulating properties. Without water and without preservatives, it is a real health detox for your skin. The advantage is that you have pure charcoal and zinc directly in your hands to benefit from its purifying properties.

If you have combination skin, our Vitamin C & fleurs d'Hibiscus powder cleanser is your best friend. It contains stabilized natural vitamin C to bring radiance to your skin and reduce pigmentation spots. Its antioxidant action will also prevent skin aging. Hibiscus flower acids have a keratolytic action that gently accelerates cell renewal.

What beauty routine for my oily skin this summer?

It's not easy to take care of your oily skin, especially when summer comes! You don't know what to do to avoid shining as soon as you go out in the sun? Here are our tips to help you survive the summer : 

Clean and purify your skin in the morning and evening

Cleansing your skin is essential if you don't want to see new pimples and other imperfections appear! Morning and/or evening, the skin needs to be cleansed of all the impurities and toxins that accumulate during the day.

Essential step: hydrate your skin  

Like other skin types, oily skin requires appropriate moisturizing. Contrary to what one might think, it's essential because it helps rebalance the skin's microbiome, reconstitute its hydrolipidic film and compensate for the dehydration caused by sweating. If you skip this step, your pores will get larger and your skin will produce more sebum.

Protect your skin from the sun

Sweat, shine, pimples... During the summer, oily skin gives us a hard time. But just because your skin is playing tricks on you doesn't mean you have to miss out on the good times and the sun. Opt for protective, mattifying and hydrating formulas that don't overwhelm your skin and make it feel good.

Lighten your routine

Don't overload your skin with products and avoid applying makeup daily. Otherwise, you will stimulate your sebaceous glands and increase sebum production. Makeup and sweating do not mix well. Summer is the perfect time to let your skin breathe and give it a real detox ! 


Prepare for September

As you tan, your skin becomes thicker and pimples tend to disappear to our great delight. But be careful, they hide themselves in order to come back once the vacations are over. If you don't take care of your skin during the summer, the rebound effect could be fatal. That's why you mustn't forget to remove your makeup and clean your skin at night, as well as protect it from the sun. After your vacation, if you notice the first imperfections, don't hesitate to use our Charbon Purifiant powder face cleanser to purify and mattify your skin.


What cleanser should I use after a sunburn? 

After too much sun exposure, your skin can become red and tight. To gently cleanse your sensitized skin, we recommend our Trio d'Huiles powder face cleanser. Organic vegetable oils will nourish your skin and gently cleanse it: organic argan oil, rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, will nourish your dry skin and fight against free radicals. It also contains organic safflower oil, rich in antioxidants and which helps to fight the skin aging signs. It will act on the cutaneous rednesses thanks to the vitamin K. Organic Hemp oil, rich in vitamin E and in omega-6 and omega-3, will have an antioxidant and regenerating action. The prebiotic that it contains protects and reinforces the balance of skin microbiota. Your skin will be nourished and regenerated. 


All of these tips help prepare your skin naturally for the sun. Obviously it is also essential to avoid exposure to the hottest hours and to protect yourself with a sunscreen. Ready? Enjoy your summer !
