Nos conseils's budding!

Spring often doesn't just bud on trees... The skin lives like you do with the seasons and has the annoying tendency to see unsightly spots grow... But don't panic, here are our tips for continuing to admire the trees blooming without want to be like them!

Why do we have pimples?

Whether you have passed the age of puberty or that of the arrival of your first toddler, it does not matter: pimples can appear without warning. The reason? They form as a result of increased sebum production.

Sebum is not an enemy strictly speaking since it is basically an oily substance that the skin produces naturally in order to fight against the cold and protect itself from the sun.

Here, we are talking about sebum, but there is also acne – which can appear following hormonal imbalances or heavy hits of stress, fatigue, allergy, infection, pollution… Yes, the causes are multiple, but good news, it is possible to prevent them with a few simple actions!

Thoroughly cleanse your skin

The golden rule: to limit the appearance of pimples, cleanse your skin morning and evening and, for those who play sports, repeat the experience after the session. Why? Quite simply to eliminate bacteria which have the unfortunate tendency to invite themselves into oily areas.

…And I see you coming: when I say cleaning your skin, it's not putting your face under running water.

Unfortunately, this one is too aggressive and will not target your real needs. Those with sensitive skin will opt for milks and those with oily or combination skin will avoid them and instead rely on foaming products to rinse with water.

The thing that we don't necessarily know is that our skin is made up of a kind of "acid mantle" which aims to protect it from external aggressions. These acids present in our skin result from our metabolism, from sebum, but also from perspiration.

Unfortunately, lack of sleep, pollution and multiple factors upset this natural balance and this results in the arrival of small spots. The chemical exfoliant made from fruit acids allows a deep action on the cells and effective without attacking your skin!

Increase the effect of the product tenfold by applying a purifying mask once or twice a week. 

Moisturize and nourish the skin sufficiently

 Stop misconceptions: just because you're prone to pimples doesn't mean you shouldn't nourish your skin!

On the contrary, applying a suitable treatment helps to regulate its balance. Indeed, we tend to want to dry it out – which is not the solution since often, these very aggressive products can promote the production of pimples.

But beware, the beauty routine is not to be done just anyhow: you clean the skin, you disinfect it, you moisturize it first with a serum then with a day/night care.

We also have a light hand on the quantity of products we use: there is no point in applying your cream as you would slip Nutella on a slice of bread. Finally, a few tips, if you have oily skin, a light emulsion is a good solution. For dry skin, we will bet on a very moisturizing and mattifying treatment. 

Take care of yourself !

It is not enough to choose the right beauty routine to avoid the appearance of pimples since the hygiene of life greatly contributes to limiting the arrival of an army of spots.

We can never say it enough, but reddened skin is skin that communicates its discomfort to you. Avoid too fatty food (as bad for your body as for your skin), avoid cigarettes, skip the episode in addition to your favorite series at 11:30 p.m. and sleep!

Hydrate yourself enough. I assure you, I'm not going to do here the ten commandments of a healthy life, but let's say that if you follow Gisèle Bündchen's perfect life on Instagram and you are jealous of her skin... you know what you have to do !

On the other hand, if you feel that the problem is hormonal, do not hesitate to consult your doctor who will refer you to appropriate care.

Also, it is advisable to include a basic treatment composed of niacinamide. Essential nutrient, it is naturally synthesized by the human body and plays a major role in all organs.

On the skin, it has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Finally, an essential element of sunny days, choose a product containing a sufficient sun protection factor (or apply sunscreen) to prevent your pimples from becoming nasty permanent scars once exposed to the sun.
