Beautiful, soft and supple, we love our skin when it is at its best! But to make sure it's at its best every day and help it fight against damage, remember to moisturise, again and again. Here are 6 tips to keep it healthy and in good condition.
But why is it so fragile anyway? During pregnancy, a baby has no worries, as it bathes in its amniotic fluid. Once out in the world, it's a different matter: after a few days, the natural barrier of the vernix caseosa wears off. Until the glands that produce sebum are mature enough to produce the hydrolipidic film, you will have to help baby strengthen their skin and develop bacterial flora.
TIP #1: Drink up!
Your skin needs at least 1.5L of water a day. Water not your thing? Alternate with herbal tea or indulge with cucumbers, tomatoes and watermelons.
TIP #2: Exfoliate!
As long as it is gentle, regular exfoliation allows you to exfoliate dead skin cells and frees the skin to better absorb moisturisers! Ready to caress!
TIP #3: Go to war with limescale
Be smarter than this little devil to avoid tight skin: take a lukewarm shower (no more than 38°) to gently soften your skin and opt for soap-free cleansing products to nourish and strengthen your lipid film.
TIP #4: Oil up!
Do vegetables keep you hydrated? Yes! Vegetable oils are full of polyunsaturated fatty acids that your skin needs to protect the skin barrier and keep your skin supple!
TIP #5: Dab & dab!
Switch to the gentle method when you get out of the shower: gently dab your skin with your towel rather than scrubbing it! Your epidermis will thank you...
TIP #6: Do your little routine
Whether you have 5 minutes or the whole evening in front of you, make your hydration a special moment: scrub, mask, milk, and why not bath or massage! You deserve it.
