Adopt a healthy diet for a radiant complexion

Diet plays a vital role in our overall health , and this also includes the appearance of our skin. A balanced, nutrient-rich diet can contribute to a glowing, radiant complexion . Indeed, what we put on our plate can have a direct impact on the health of our skin.

First, it's important to eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. These foods are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help fight free radicals responsible for premature aging of the skin.

  • Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons are particularly beneficial as they are rich in vitamin C, which promotes the production of collagen, an essential protein for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

  • In addition to fruits and vegetables, whole grains are also important for glowing skin. Whole grains like oats, quinoa, and brown rice are high in fiber and antioxidants, which aid in healthy digestion and flushing out toxins from the body. Optimal digestion is crucial for maintaining skin clarity and preventing skin problems such as acne.

  • Essential fatty acids are another key component of a skin-healthy diet. Oily fish such as salmon, sardines, and mackerel are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help maintain skin moisture and reduce inflammation. Walnuts, flax seeds and olive oil are also good sources of healthy fatty acids.

  • It is also important to limit the consumption of processed foods, high in refined sugars and saturated fats. These foods can cause inflammation in the body, which is often reflected in skin problems such as pimples and redness. Instead, opt for fresh, natural foods that nourish your body from within.

Finally, let's not forget the importance of hydration . Drinking enough water is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Water helps eliminate toxins from the body and promotes optimal hydration of the skin, thus giving it a more supple and radiant appearance.

Prepare and protect your skin

Prepare your skin

The arrival of sunny days often arouses the desire to spend time outdoors, soaking up the sun and achieving a tanned complexion. However, before rushing into the beneficial rays of the sun, it is essential to prepare your skin to minimize the risk of damage and maximize the benefits. By following a few simple steps, you can properly prepare your skin and ensure a sun-kissed complexion while avoiding the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.

The first step to preparing your skin is to exfoliate it regularly. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin. By removing these dead cells, you also promote a more even and long-lasting tan . Use a gentle scrub suited to your skin type once or twice a week. Gently massage your face and body in circular motions, emphasizing rough areas such as elbows, knees and heels. It is good to remove dead cells once a week by massaging your face and body with scrubs. The skin will then be radiant, the complexion radiant, and ready to receive the active ingredients of our supplements for a tanned complexion with the effect of returning from vacation. Be careful not to over-exfoliate your skin though, as this can cause irritation.

Preparing and protecting your skin is also done on the superficial layers, via topical treatments. After the exfoliation, the next step is to deeply hydrate your skin. Well hydrated skin is healthier, more supple and more receptive to the benefits of the sun. Choose a moisturizer suitable for your skin type and apply it generously all over your face and body. Dry skin can benefit from a richer cream, while oily skin can opt for a light, non-greasy lotion. You can also choose to nourish your skin from within with our Absolute-Nutrition Duo

We apply carrot oil in the evening, to nourish the skin and provide it with natural carotenoids, we use non-aggressive cosmetics such as BB creams that do not clog the pores of the skin and if possible, with a high SPF and enriched with vitamin C or E, which block skin aging induced by UV rays. Sun powders can be applied for an even more pronounced healthy glow effect. Apply your care with a clean brush to avoid the transfer of microbes, which your skin hates.

Remember to choose a product that has built-in sunscreen for extra UV protection.

Speaking of sun protection, applying sunscreen with an adequate sun protection factor (SPF) is imperative to prevent damage from UV rays. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Apply sunscreen liberally to all exposed parts of your body, including face, neck, arms and legs. Remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you sweat or swim. For the best protection, combine your sunscreen with protective clothing such as a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and light but covering clothing.

Avoid applying synthetic self-tanners, which are harmful to the skin and the environment. Especially the spray bottles..!

In addition to external preparations, it is essential to take care of your skin from the inside.
