1 - With the summer, take care of your skin! With the arrival of summer, heat, exposure to the sun, UV radiation more intense, sea salt, chlorine pools, skin is undermined! Rough, parched, it loses its luster, dries up and reveals some fine lines. Protecting yourself is not always enough. More than ever, in the summer, your skin needs to be neat and pampered.
2 - The skin needs nutrients Your skin needs vitamin A to renew its cells, carotenoids and vitamin C to protect against UV and vitamins B and C to perform collagen synthesis. To fight against aging, pigmentation and oxidation of cells, your skin also needs trace elements and essential fatty acids such as Omega3 - which soften the cutaneous vessels and thus promote the passage of nutrients to the skin - and Omega6, which are involved in the fight against aging and the development of lipid film, cement between cells.
3 - Nature, your everyday ally The main healthy allies of your skin are found in fruits and vegetables rich in trace elements and antioxidant vitamins, in interesting quantities in red and orange fruits and vegetables (tomatoes, oranges, apricots ...). Also prefer coffee tea because it is richer in antioxidants. You will find the good fats and unsaturated fatty acids needed to keep beautiful skin in vegetable oils such as rapeseed, flax, nuts or soy. Use them as seasonings in your salads! Another precious mine for your skin: oily fish such as tuna, salmon, sardines, mackerel ...
4 - The external care: adopt the good gestures After exposure to the sun, the skin must be refreshed and soothed. Rinse with a neutral pH shower gel and apply after-sun cream or gel. Rich in soothing assets, the after-sun will nourish and repair your skin, while prolonging the holding of your tan. If your skin has blushed, apply (by repeating the process several times) a Biafine® cream in a thick layer, allowing the skin to absorb the excess. Stop exposing yourself to the sun or cover yourself for a few days. Continue the after-sun application after you return from vacation, to avoid peeling.
5 - Nourish your skin from the inside thanks to food supplements Nutricosmetic allows you to eat foods enriched with active ingredients. Complete the action of creams with complex rich in B vitamins, antioxidants (zinc, beta-carotene, selenium ...) and borage oil or evening primrose with 2 capsules in the morning. Your skin will soften and be much less dehydrated. Make a cure just before, during and after the summer. Borage oil is a better source of omega6 than evening primrose oil, with 20 to 25% of gamma-linolenic acids compared to 8 to 12% for evening primrose oil. Both oils can be consumed simultaneously in capsules. They complement each other perfectly, offering excellent results.
6 - Hygiene tips: to keep a beautiful skin in summer, adopt the good reflexes - Protect your skin from the sun to prevent wrinkles, pigment spots and loss of firmness. - Drink 1 liter of water a day (more if possible) to moisturize your skin from the inside. Water is the main element! - Eat healthy. Good nutrition is as important, if not more, than any cream!
