Notes from our Bio-Estheticians: Summer Skin Care

Romatic girl, beauty in natureThis summer you probably would like your skin to be looking young and healthy ! With warm weather fast approaching, we’re prepared to offer you some advice from our bio-estheticians.

 

The arrival of summer! (Early June)

About 2 weeks before exposing your skin to the sun it is important to do some preparatory treatments. First, you should exfoliate your skin 2 to 3 times per week using our blend of Cleansing Cream and Seabuckthorn Facial Mask[1]. They allow you to rid your skin of dead cells and reveal healthy, glowing fresh skin. This step will ensure a uniform and healthy tan when you are out and about in the sun. For people who might have some spots, our Age-Defence Serum is the product for you. It has been clinically proven that to decrease the number of dark spots and hyperpigmentation up to 78% after 56 days of use (as part of the clinical study protocol).

 

The middle of the summer (July-August)

This is the period during which your skin will be most exposed to sunlight. It is therefore very important to moisturize. Start with the Toning Mist – your skin will soak up the moisture and the mist will soothe skin after long days in the sun. For a more calming effect you can even leave it in the refrigerator, it will be cool and help to calm redness. Use the Toning Mist in the morning to cleanse your face of impurities using cotton swabs (swap over the T-zone (chin-nose-front) to disinfect the area). Follow with the Age-Defense moisturizer which best suits your skin type (normal, dry, oily-sensitive).

Tip for the summer: our Age-Defence Gel for Oily-Senstitive skin is a fresh gel which is ideal as a moisturizer for normal skin during the summer season. It will leave your skin hydrated and silky thanks to the combination of sea buckthorn oils and jojoba.

One of the most important steps for any summer skin care routine is the application of sunscreen. Whether a full screen (which blocks all rays) or a solar filter (which allows some rays to pass through and enables the skin to tan) it is important to follow dosage and apply the cream every 90 to 120 minutes and when you exit the water. Another tip for beautiful skin: Our Sea Buckthorn Tea is makes a super iced tea, refreshing and rich in anti-oxidants that will help fight free radicals.

 

Late summer (September)

About 2 weeks after significant sun exposure, you will be able to start exfoliating. This will allow your skin to get rid of dead cells and clear the outer cell layer which is formed to protect your skin in the summer. As at the beginning of the summer, you should exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week using our mix of Cleansing Cream and Mask. It is also advisable to make a nutritious mask[2] by mixing your moisturizer and the mask. Age-Defence Serum will hydrate and nourish your skin which will be much needed in the approach of autumn. During the coldest days, our Age-Defence Cream for dry and mature skin will be your ideal companion.

Use our advice to achieve healthy and beauitful skin this summer. You can also complement your home care with professional treatments from our certified bio-estheticians (visit « Where to Buy » on www.mont-echo.com to find the nearest esthetician’s office).

Apply the scrub by rubbing in small circles for about a minute and let it dry. When dry (3 to 5 minutes), remove it by rubbing off in small circles until face is clean and rinse your skin with cool water. For the most sensitive skin, do not rub the scrub – just rinse with fresh water.

[2] For the mask: mix the equivalent of a tablespoon of Facial Mask, the equivalent of a tablespoon of Age-Defence Cream for your skin type, and 5-8 sprays Toning Mist. Apply on the skin, face and neck, avoiding the eye area for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water until completely clean. Spray Toning Mist and apply your Age-Defence Cream.

I believe that beauty is a glow of energy. It’s the irresistible radiance that comes from our pride, affection, laughter and positivity. There is no right or wrong path, no mistakes, only a selection of routes to be taken. I value the people I’ve met, the memories we’ve made and the beautiful places I’ve been. It’s important to be happy and smile, smiles are contagious you never know when someone might need one… I believe that beauty is the reflection of your kindness towards others.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of natural beauty are the words “glowing” and “real”. Superficially, anyone or anything can be brought to the level of perfection, but sometimes this is at the expense of losing what is real about the person or object. Faking “realness”, however, is impossible. Glowing from is the inside out is what, in my opinion, makes a person real. Natural beauty of this kind cannot be constructed and collectively, imperfections give inherent meaning to natural beauty.

Our first finalist! Meet Sheila…

Natural beauty is pure magic – an alloy of attitude, acceptance, navigating the balance of life, work, family, career, hobbies, and social responsibility.  Natural beauty is the essence of Mother Nature and Father Time all rolled into one.  Natural beauty is ageless, genderless, an amalgam of all races and cultures.  Natural Beauty is respect, energy, pragmatic optimism and belief in miracles, with a little of the unexpected on the side.  Natural beauty should be shared, aspired to, and particularly in this day in age of physical and psychological manipulation (surgery, Botox, societal pressures), what true reinvention and personal innovation are about…with lasting impact.
