The festive season is over, but a new year is starting! Getting into sport? Saving money? Discovering new cultures? … What will be your 2020 resolution? We offer you some ideas to start beautifully the year 2020.
1st resolution: a healthy nutrition for a beautiful skin!
5 fruits and vegetables a day
It is often forgotten that the diet can have consequences on the skin. Fruits and vegetables have positive effects on the epidermis, which is why they must find a place in the plates. Products based on beta-carotene such as carrots, dried apricots, or even pumpkins promote cell renewal and ensure a radiant complexion. Oleaginous fruits limit sebum oxidation and thus reduce the appearance of imperfections such as pimples or blackheads. In addition, to amplify the energy, the vitamin C present in citrus fruits gives the skin shine and elasticity.
The essential fatty acids
Foods rich in essential fatty acids are also important. Omega-3 and Omega-6 help maintain a good level of skin hydration, tone the skin, restore suppleness and regenerate it. They can be found in particular in fishes (mackerel, sardines, tuna, salmon …) and some vegetable oils.
Drinking water is essential to guarantee the skin regular hydration. Also avoid excessively sweet juices as drinks, excess sugar being one of the reasons for the excess of sebum and therefore the appearance of imperfections.
2nd resolution: sleep
The skin works differently day and night. During the day the skin protects itself from external aggressions. At night when we sleep, the skin regenerates itself in order to be effective in its role of barrier against aggression the next day. In fact, there is an increase in the synthesis of collagen and blood flow, thus promoting cell regeneration of the skin. Lack of sleep prevents cell renewal and causes unfavorable effects on the skin.
The consequences of lack of sleep:
- Dull complexion
- Acceleration of skin aging
- Appearance of imperfections
- Appearance of dark circles
However, after a good night’s sleep, the appearance is healthier, notably with a radiant complexion, more sparkling eyes, fewer imperfections and less dry skin. To optimize cell multiplication and repair mechanisms, opt for our Shea Night Cream.
3rd resolution: take time for yourself
The stress of long days can hinder your well-being and be felt on your skin. That’s why this year, take some time for yourself! The skin needs to be pampered. Relaxing activities are therefore recommended: taking a relaxing bath, applying body creams while massaging, making face masks … Taking the time to coddle your skin will have positive effects on your mood.
