Your hands are the part of your body that you use the most during the day: type at the computer, cooking, transporting bags, cleaning. So, unintentionally, you expose your hands to constant “aggressions” like water, cold, wind, soil, sun, etc. With the combination of these elements, you fragilize the delicate skin of your hands; it can become dry and crack, and create small lesions.
Tip # 1 – Clean your hands with lukewarm water.
Since you probably clean your hands several times a day, use lukewarm water to do so, and use only a small amount of soap. After, rinse your hands thoroughly, once again with lukewarm water. Using hot water and too much soap will dry out your skin quicker.
Tip # 2 – Exfoliate your hands
If you have parched hands, exfoliate your hands once or twice a week, according to the season. You can use an exfoliating gel with fine grains on your hands. This skincare will make easier for your hand cream’s active ingredients to penetrate your skin.
Our recommendation: Exfoliating Shower Gel
Tip # 3 – Moisturize your hands every night with a repairing cream
Choose a hand cream with a thick texture to moisturize your hands deeply. Do a mild massage to your hands to make the cream penetrate your skin. For optimal effect, apply your hand cream and put on cotton gloves during the night. In the morning, your hands will be softer, and all the damage will be gone.
Our recommendation: Nourishing Hand Cream

When applied straight after your skin cleanser, the alcohol-free toner will eliminate sweat, oil excess, but will refresh your tired complexion, while clearing your skin from impurities, that can form comedones or blackheads.
Our recommendation: Hypo-Sensible Toner (alcohol-free)
Tip # 2 – Use moisturizing creams.
Using a moisturizing cream during Fall is essential to maintain your skin young and healthy. During months before winter, there is less humidity in the air, that can cause dehydration and dull your skin. Your best choice will be to opt for a moisturizing cream that contains vitamins, essential oils and nourishing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile extract.
Our recommendations : Extra-Rich Cream
Tip # 3 : Apply a moisturizing beauty mask once or twice a week.

If your skin is oily or mixed, choose a clay-based mask that will tightens and reduce dilated pores. For moisturizing masks, include it in your weekly beauty routine during Fall, since your skin needs to be nourished more during that period.
Tip # 4 : Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week.
Exfoliating remains an important beauty care for your skin and body, especially during Fall.

You can also exfoliate your body once a week to stimulate your lymphatic system and liberate toxins.
Tip # 5 : Take care of your hands.
Your hands are the first part of your body to show signs of aging. Moisturize your hands every day, especially if you wash your hands often, washing and rinsing can dry out your hands. Choose a cream with a thick and rich texture, that penetrates your skin deeply.
Our recommendation : Nourishing Hand Cream

From a season to another, beauty care that you bring to your skin differs and needs to be adapted to the weather. Summer is no exception. Here are the best three tips to take care of your skin during summer and make it healthy and glowing.
Protect your skin :The most important element to enjoy summer without worrying about sunburns is to protect your skin while being outdoors. Find a sunscreen that will fit with your skin type and that you will apply 15 to 30 minutes prior of going outside and that you will reapply every 90 minutes according to your activity’s length. If you are going outside for a short period of time, choose an SPF 15 sunscreen. For longer periods, make sure you pack an SPF 30.
Moisturizing ! :During summertime, it can be tempting to reduce the moisturizing of your skin, since it will not look as dry as it is in winter. Adapt your moisturizing cream or lotion, by choosing a moisturizer with a smoother texture. However, should you have a sunburn, use an after-sun care product that will soothe your skin quickly and will allow it to regenerate.
Regular Exfoliating : Dead skin cells can build up on your skin, render it dull, rough and dry. By exfoliating your skin once or twice a week, you will unclog your skin pores and will make your skin glowing and healthy. Choose exfoliating products with natural grains rather than fruit-acid based exfoliators that can irritate your skin.
Add to these recommendations a healthy diet and increased water consumption and taking care of your skin in the summer would never have been easier.
