I want shine!

The principle.

"The skin is like an apple:without water, it withers, hence the importance of hydrating it well. And without protection, it oxidizes,” says Frédérique Gente, SkinCeuticals Training Director. Many external elements such as UV rays, stress, temperature changes or tobacco contribute to the formation of free radicals. In excess, these molecules naturally present in the body promote cellular aging, redness, pigment spots... To neutralize them, we use antioxidant active ingredients, which are found in food and in certain treatments. cosmetics.

How do I do it?

The most well-known active ingredients are vitamins A, C and E, polyphenols (in fruits, seaweed, etc.) or sunscreens. These are the serums that contain the most. Morning and evening, before the cream, apply an anti-oxidant serum (which can be combined with a moisturizing or anti-aging serum). And in the morning, we finish with a sunscreen (minimum SPF 30). And yes:UVA rays (responsible for skin aging) are present all year round.
