The body saturates during the holidays and with the accumulation of toxins and the liver loses its vitality. Responsible for eliminating toxins from the body, this emunctory organ passes the baton on to the skin in the event of excessive festivities and causes undesirable effects: pimples, dull complexion….

Even if you removed your makeup the day before, it will rid the skin of impurities accumulated overnight thanks to its gel texture bursting with anti-aging and protective vegetable oils. First, massage a small amount onto dry skin with your fingertips to stimulate and relax the skin, before rinsing it off with clean water to transform it into a light milky emulsion. The Cleansing Gel then gently removes excess sebum and impurities to complete the double cleansing. Thanks to its ultra-soft natural surfactants, it is suitable for all skin types in which it preserves natural hydration.
3. Exfoliate for a new skin and boost the complexion
For a boost the day after the holidays, you can follow up with the 3rd step and the Exfoliating Peeling Mask. It is applied to dry skin to take advantage of its double exfoliating action: first enzymatic thanks to its hypoallergenic fruit acids, then mechanically with its jojoba beads to be gently massaged after 10 minutes of exposure before rinsing.

In the absence of a specific product, you can completely mix your usual amount of shower gel in a bowl with 1 to 3 tablespoons of sugar depending on the reactivity of your skin for an express homemade body exfoliant.
4. Purify the epidermis of toxins to detoxify the skin
After exfoliation, the 4th step in taking care of your skin after the holidays is to purify the skin. Your face is now more than ready to receive a detox treatment: the Purifying Creamy Mask which is also suitable for all skin types. In addition to Bio -actif® Yellow Banana (a complex rich in omega 3, 6, and antioxidants), this soothing and moisturizing treatment owes its purifying action in particular to yellow clay and kaolin. During the 10 minutes of exposure, these active ingredients will absorb toxins, balance the production of sebum and thus free the pores for a refined and brighter skin texture. While they are working, you can take the opportunity to nourish your body with milk associated with Precious Nutritive Oil.

Apply it with the right technique to make all the difference. It is enough to take the equivalent of a grain of rice on one ring finger, to distribute it on the second, then to exert light pressure with the pulp of the finger from the inner corner of the eye towards the outside. up to the brow bone. These tapping performed with the weakest finger of the hand boost the blood microcirculation, which helps fight against dark circles, and drain lymphatic circulation, perfect against puffiness. All without damaging the fragile area around the eye.
Otherwise, slices of ripe bananas to leave for ten minutes (time to redo the list of good resolutions) can help out a tired look. Rich in potassium, bananas help relieve congestion around the eye area damaged by lack of sleep. A practical and delicious tip.
