TAKING CARE OF YOUR SKIN
A NEW ROUTINE FOR STAYING BEAUTIFUL IN THE SUN, PRODUCTS THAT GIVE YOU GLOW AND LOTS OF OTHER SUMMER BEAUTY ESSENTIALS.
1. EXFOLIATE FOR A BETTER TAN
About to go ona seaside vacation? A week before leaving, treat yourself to a well-beingsession at the Beauty Workshop at the Atelier de Beauté Anne Semonin. Then continue regularly exfoliating your skin gently with the Exfoliating Shower Gel. You'll get rid of accumulated dead skin cells and will get a lovely even tan skin during your holiday.
2. 2. MOISTURISE FROM HEAD TO TOE
A well-moisturised skin is also well-protected against the drying effects of the sun and heat. Apply a body moisturizing cream after every moment you spent in the sun, like one from the Anne Semonin Mémoires d’Été line. Also, use the Mask Gel once or twice a week to maintain your glow and your tan skin.
3. EAT HEALTHY SKIN FOODS
The more colour in your plate, the more vitamins there are! Opt for seasonal fruits and vegetables--liketomatoes, eggplant, courgettes, melon, peaches and apricots -- which are water-rich to moisturise your skin from the inside.
4. CLEAN YOUR SKIN
Holidays or not, your skin will always need cleansing. At this time your face is exposed towind, sand, seawater, sunscreen and sweat, so it needs to be cleaned each night to eliminate the impurities collected duringthe day. Use Anne Semonin's Oligo Cleansing Gel Anne Semonin enriched with red algae to deep-cleanse your skin.
5. FIND THE BEST SERUM
Winter and summer, you need a skin routine that matches the seasons and the problems that come with them. The serums at Anne Semonin have been specially formulated to answer specific skincare needs. The Phytarosa Serum has an "SOS" multi-function formula created for skins damaged by the sun and cold. It prepares your skin for sun exposure, repairs it and brings out your tan. It is essential skincare that protects and re-moisturises your skin during your holidays. Use it 30 days before sun exposure, and don't forget to pack it in your toiletries bag!
6. ADD AN FPS
Whether you're in town, in the mountains or on the shore, UV rays are strongest when the sun's shining. So it's important to protect your skin from burning and rapid aging. The summer skincare Oligo Protect Cream from Anne Semonin has SPF30 that acts as a protective shield against UVA and UVB rays. It also contains marine extracts that strengthen and preserve the skin while maintaining optimal tissue moisture levels.
7. LIMIT YOUR EXPOSURE
We're all for feeling the lovely sunshine on our skin, but we're dead set against the damage that UV rays can do. To stay safe and prevent your skin from agingprematurely, avoid going in the sun between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m., and remember to wear a hat!
8. LIGHTEN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE
Use travel-size, two-in-one products to lighten your load. Here are our recommendations from Anne Semonin for your summer skincare toiletry case: the Discovery Kit which is ideal for cabin luggage; Body Oils; the large-size or Exfoliating Natural Face Mask the large-size or single-dose; Express Radiance Ice Cubes; and our reusable Cellulose Sponges.
9. BREATHE THE SEA AIR
The sea air is well-known for its purity, since it has fewer pollutants and contaminants than city air and helps our lungs function properly.
Rich in negative ions, it is also charged with iodine, which is essential to help our body better resist daily aggressions. For the care of our skin and its well-being, Anne Semonin has formulated most of its products from trace elements and marine extracts. A good way to integrate the benefits of the sea into your beauty routine.
