Comment avoir une peau ultra lumineuse ?

Ultra-radiant skin for Valentine's Day!

Pour prévenir et éliminer les taches pigmentaires, il est primordial de miser sur des soins ciblés enrichis en actifs anti-taches. PATYKA vous livre ses meilleurs conseils pour retrouver un teint unifié

1.You are what you eat: foods for a beautiful skin

Alimentation has a major impact on skin appearance. By favouring specific foods, you will be able to significately improve radiance and skin quality. Pick foods that are rich in beta-carotenes such as carrots, orange, melon, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and papaya. Red berries are amazing natural antioxidants which also bring radiance to the skin.

Fish and seafood rich in Omega-3s, such as salmon, contain essential fatty acids that nourish and soften the skin.

Drinking enough water is a good habit to take. A water-soaked skin gains in luminosity; it also prevents the appearance of aging signs. Favor water or green tea, well-known for its antioxidant properties. Absolutely go for it! Green tea also helps reducing acne and imperfections!

2. Eliminate toxins and prep your skin for moisturising

Double-cleansing (makeup removal + cleansing) is key to beautiful skin! Adopting a gentle, skin-friendly cleansing routine is the first step for a fresh and bright complexion.

Remedy to a dull complexion? Skin exfoliation!

Dead skin that accumulates on the surface of your skin is one of the causes of a dull complexion. For an instant brighter complexion, simply exfoliate your skin once a week with a gentle scrub such as the Double-Action Smoothing Scrub that stimulates the renewal process of your skin cells.

After the cleansing step, apply a lotion on your skin. This refines skin texture and improves assimilation of moisturising skincare applied afterwards.

3. Boost and maximize your skin hydration

Combine your daily moisturizer to a Serum that will maximize the hydrating properties of your cream and has a deeper action. The Antioxidant Perfecting Serum for example, moisturise and brighten your skin thanks to the Date Seed extract it contains.

Choose creams formulated with vegetable oils better assimilated by skin

Some vegetable oils help moisturising and improve the epidermis quality thanks to their perfect affinity with skin. Jojoba oil has a very strong affinity with the lipids of intercellular cement and its composition is very similar to sebum. It is therefore particularly emollient and moisturises without being too greasy and is particularly suitable for dehydrated skins. Wheat germ oil, which contains vitamin E, is a powerful natural antioxidant. It also helps prevent skin dryness while providing radiance to your complexion.

Be careful: Mineral oils contained in some conventional skincare products are occlusive and favor formation of blackheads; it is better to avoid them.

4. Apply night skincare for even more efficacy

Skin is regenerating during night, thus, you can offer to your skin, several times per year a 21 days radiance cure with an oil rich in vitamins.

For sensitive skin, the second option is to apply a night mask once a week. When waking-up, your skin will be plumped-up and smooth!

5. Protect your skin against aggressions

Protecting your skin against free radicals, UV radiations and pollution is essential as these daily aggressions accelerate cutaneous aging and deeply deteriorate your skin. Shielding skincare with anti-radical properties as the Antioxidant Smoothing Cream or mists, protecting against aggressions such as the Anti-Pollution Hydra-Defense Mist are perfect allies to make your skin luminous and beautifully radiant.
