When it comes to my summer beauty routine it’s important to me to have fresh, soft, healthy skin. When my skin looks and feels good, so do I. And I’m sure you can relate that you feel more confident showing off that summer bod in your favourite dress of the season, when your skin is feeling fresh. With any seasonal change it’s important to take good care of your skin, especially in the summertime. We tend to wear less clothes, exposing our skin to the sun’s harmful rays. We need to know how to protect our skin but also how to repair it if you’ve had one too many mojitos at the beach. With more intense summer sun and UV rays effective hydrating and repairing products are important to incorporate into your daily skincare routine that produce long lasting results.
The best part about the products that I’m recommending from La Biosthetique Paris is that they are made from a blend of natural, high-quality ingredients, with scientifically proven results. I love using anything from La Biosthetique Paris because their values are in line with mine. La Biosthetique Paris’ holistic concept are in harmony with the environment. Not only does that make it perfect for the beauty industry, but also for the sustainability of our planet. And if that’s not enough, the company has a strict policy to not test on animals. There’s nothing I don’t love about La Biosthetique, the main hair and makeup sponsor of Eco Fashion Week, might I add! Yeah!!!
1. Prevent Dehydration
My must have to prevent any signs of dehydration is La Biosthetique’s La Capsule Hydratante, paired with a super huge bottle of water. They look like little beads and are the new generation of encapsulated hyaluronic acid that have a time release effect which plumps the skin deep down with hydration, calms sun damaged skin and protects against cell damage. Pretty much an all in one. The gel capsule leaves your skin feeling velvety soft without any oily side effects and prepares your skin perfectly for makeup application. These are my go-to gels when I’m on the run and are perfect for travelling or those quick summer get-aways.
2. Age & Sun Spot Prevention
In the summer, pigmentation becomes more noticeable, which looks to most like freckles, but to me I know that it is sun damage. My tip to avoid pigmentation is to start prevention early before unwanted dark sports appear. Beauty Activating Essence contains moisturizing and skin-lightening active ingredients which reduces as well as prevents sun and age spots. Overall your skin with look brighter, plumper and those spots will be reduced, leaving you with a flawless complexion. Now who can say no to that?!!
Once a week after cleansing skin, or as needed, I like to use Masque Hydro-Sensitif. It’s like a tall drink of water for my skin. I am extremely obsessed with its creamy gel texture and how amazing it smells on my skin. This masque makes your skin feel like you’ve enrobed it in a cocoon, creating a calm and even skin texture. Pure oils from sunflower and blackcurrant seeds repair damaged skin, reducing inflammation, itchiness and feelings of tightness. You can leave on the skin for 10-20 minutes or for even more benefits try over night, like me! Your skin looks more radiant, softer and healthier.
4. Prevent & Repair Eye Care
If you’re anything like me the fine lines around my eyes, or my laugh lines I’m told, drive me completely nuts! Especially when I haven’t slept much, feel extra stressed or left my sunglasses at home like a bozo, they look even more set in and worse, and I’m not that old which is even more concerning!! Yikes. When this happens my go-to product has to be the eye gel cooling pads from La Biosthetique. My life now would not be complete without Patch Gel Liftant! The cooling pads help to reduce fine lines and puffiness while helping to brighten the under eye area and prevent fine lines. Apply 1-3x a week, ideally for 15-30 minutes. When I’m in flight, I love throwing them on underneath a sleep mask and catching some zzz’s while I hydrate.
If you know me well, you’ll know that I am extremely regimented when it comes to removing my makeup off at night. I can’t go to bed without taking off every inch. I’ve actually become obsessive. But it’s part of the job, otherwise I don’t think I’d be on camera. The Gentle Enzyme Peeling helps to cleanse the skin right down to the pore with the help of natural enzymes from papaya extract. Without using mechanical exfoliating grains, this product is ideal skin prep for subsequent active ingredients and is even suitable for most skin types. I have very sensitive skin and I find this product to be just enough for me. It stimulates the cell renewal process, leaving skin healthy with an overall even looking complexion.
