As in nature, our facial and body skin varies and does not have the same needs depending on the season. Have you ever noticed that you lose your hair in the fall like trees losing their leaves? Well, it's the same for your skin. Heat or cold, humidity or dry weather, sun, wind, luminosity, all these elements of nature have a strong effect on our skin, especially on our face which is the most exposed.
So how do we know what our facial skin needs as the seasons change? How to answer it? How do we care for the seasons and adapt our beauty habits and routines? How to help our skin adapt quickly? Is it really worth changing our cosmetics during the year after all? Some advice to see things a little more clearly…
2 things to consider:
The Outdoor Elements: The Season
In each season, the skin is attacked either by heat, cold, heating, air conditioning, the sun and many other factors that can be natural or mechanical.
Our skin adapts but sometimes it needs a helping hand!
In autumn, the skin is often tired from everything it has been through in the summer. She needs to regain vitality, to be boosted. Cocooning is back, you have to take a little time to make yourself masks.
A tug, the renewal of your skin cells naturally takes place at a slower rate. Redness may appear. You really have to help your metabolism and rich creams are essential to provide comfort and protection against external aggressions.
The rosemary day cream provides a guaranteed velvety effect.
In spring, it is the renewal. Your skin will be able to benefit from light again. To remove dead cells and winter impurities, it's time to exfoliate!
Use the Mademoiselle Saint Germain scrub, it's soft, fruity, and very effective.
In summer, both the sun does good. We find a tanned complexion, a healthy glow, but like any pleasure, it should not be abused! At the same time, protect your skin against the sun, but also against the effects of the sun and heat. For this, use lighter, more airy creams, you will not shine at the first heat stroke.
Light cream will be perfect: Mademoiselle Saint Germain cucumber cream.
The inner element: your skin type.
Dry, combination, oily or normal? Nice little test to do...
At any age, it is important to know yourself to adapt your care. Depending on your skin type, the care ritual varies. A few tips to adopt a good beauty routine is essential.
With dry skin, and especially in winter, you will have tight skin. Sometimes your skin may peel. You lack sebum. First of all, you need to drink more water. Good hydration is good for your skin. Summer or winter, do not hesitate to use a serum, especially at night, and make nourishing and moisturizing masks enriched with natural oil.

With oily skin, it's the opposite. Your skin produces too much sebum. Don't think that stripping your face with harsh cleansers will solve the problem. The skin will react all the more by producing more sebum. You must use a mattifying cream that will allow the skin to regulate its sebum production and rebalance the skin. In addition, exfoliation is the ally of oily skin. It unclogs pores and refines its texture. A fine scrub is enough, no need to abuse it.
For combination skin, it's something else again. If you feel like you have oily skin on the T-zone of your face (forehead, nose, and chin) while the rest of your face is even and matte, you have combination skin. On the cream side, choose a cream for oily skin all over your face, avoiding the T-zone on which you can put a cream for oily skin. Use a moisturizer depending on the area of your face. Alternate your care between exfoliation and mask.
Finally, for normal skin, balanced skin, it is still necessary to protect and nourish it. Use light treatments whether for hydration, exfoliation and mask.
How to take care of your face and body skin naturally?
You have the most motivated, who will prepare their own beauty treatments themselves, but you still need to have the ingredients, suitable and organic active ingredients, and time!
For most of us, we have to trust cosmetic companies that are experts in their field. First, locate the percentages of naturalness on the packaging. A product with a high percentage of natural ingredients or of natural origin is a guarantee of quality. Beware of % unnatural. Organic is a plus, but not always. An organic product that will use ingredients from the 4 corners of the globe, is not necessarily very respectful of the environment if we calculate the carbon footprint of its ingredients. Be sure to read the list of non-natural ingredients. Some can be completely harmless, or on the contrary very toxic. A. product rich in oils are very beneficial.
The best is to test your products in a pharmacy or in a store, or if you buy it online, read the reviews carefully. A natural product YES of course, but pleasure and efficiency too!
