Pollution, stress, UV, lifestyle or multiple layers of Make-Up can all be reasons for a dull, dull complexion lacking radiance. Indeed, our lifestyles have a close impact on our body and even more on the skin, that of the face being the first concerned. Here are some tips to regain radiance and brighten your complexion easily, without makeup. Tips that go through the plate, through lifestyle but also through the beauty ritual. So ? Do you trade your gray face for candy pink cheekbones and a radiant complexion?

1/ Hygiene of life

We won't stop saying it, a beautiful face with a luminous complexion requires having an irreproachable lifestyle on a daily basis (okay, a few dead ends from time to time, it shouldn't become a chore ). The best remedy for this is food, in fact, the micronutrients found in food help renew our cells. There are therefore foods to promote such as those rich in antioxidants (fruits/vegetables/green tea) which slow down the aging of the skin or even certain fatty acids, omega 6 for example will prevent the epidermis from drying out. Nourish your skin is to make it more supple and therefore more resistant.

On the other hand, think about it from now on when you go shopping, we think detox and foods rich in beta-carotene. These fruits and vegetables such as carrots, mango or even papaya which are natural color developers and which will do good to your complexion, believe us. These foods are to be consumed both in solid and liquid form. A healthy lifestyle also means avoiding anything that attacks the skin, such as cigarettes, alcohol or sugar.

2/ Beauty Ritual

The beauty ritual is one of the essential things to keep skin full of radiance. No matter the skin, you have to pamper it. Of course, this also goes through the greatest attention to the sun. Trust us, you can find a fresh complexion in less than 5 minutes with or without products. We give you all the keys.

1. Refresh and soothe your skin

A simple gesture is to be adopted to refresh your skin. It consists of using a thermal water mist and spraying it all over your face. This kind of products allow a fresh effect at any time of the day and night. You probably had the opportunity to test this during the heat wave.

2.Decongest the eye area

A complexion that lacks freshness and radiance can often be the result of tired little eyes. In this case, only one solution, it is necessary to decongest the eye contour. Decongest, what does it mean? That is to say, to stop the congestion and more precisely the excessive accumulation of blood in the vessels. There are many natural tricks, such as a tea bag dipped in frozen water and placed under the eyes, ice cubes or small spoons placed in the fridge beforehand. But these techniques can remain light for deep treatment. It is always preferable to opt for recognized care.

The decongestant cucumber trick:

Indeed against tired eyes and bad looks, the unstoppable and most natural remedy that remains the cucumber. The best-known beauty tip remains the traditional cucumber slices placed on the eyes.

At Mademoiselle Saint Germain we have developed a range of products with white cucumber from Bonneuil, a species that had disappeared in the past and which has been reintroduced especially for the needs of Mademoiselle Saint Germain care. Within this range we find a day cream (moisturizing/reviving & mattifying), an exfoliating mask with Fontainebleau sand (the finest sand in the world) and finally the famous eye contour. This anti-puffiness and anti-dark circles eye contour is presented in the form of a regenerating jelly for immediate assimilation, the Mademoiselle Saint Germain eye contour is a moisturizing treatment. It is formulated from a cucumber extract from the King's Vegetable Garden, it reduces wrinkles and fine lines caused by dehydration.

The advantages of this treatment: its metallic ball which decongests the eye contour with its freshness effect and its richness in cedar bark, at the origin of its light brown color, which gives the product its anti-dark circles properties.

3. Hydrate your skin

Finally, what better than a good dose of hydration to display a fresh complexion throughout the day. Your skin needs water. For this, in addition to your usual beauty routine, what could be better than a “radiance boost” mask to regain your good looks.

One of our most frequent tips: when you make homemade masks, opt for ORGANIC products and foods (from local agriculture if possible for a rock-solid GREEN awareness), these will be better for your body.

For the mask opt for 1 mixed carrot (we tell you, the carrot is revealing of color; perfect for a luminous and fresh complexion), 1 egg yolk, 1 little olive oil and 1 little yogurt or fresh cream, mix everything, leave for about 20 to 30 minutes and you're done. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water, you will find yourself looking radiant. A "bright" effect mask is to be performed every week or every two weeks. To force to repeat it the skin will appear beautiful and luminous.

3/ 2 minutes to understand the Glowi look!

Have you ever heard of the term "Glow" or "Glow" which means having clear, smooth and luminous skin, all without shine, with or without artifice. In short, a perfect complexion! There are two ways to achieve a "Glowi" complexion, either naturally or with a small dose of Make Up, on the cheeks, lips or eyes! At first, we will constantly remind you that light makeup will favor the beauty of your facial skin. Tips to keep in mind are:

- Cleanse your skin (every day!!!!)

- Moisturize your skin (also every day)

- Detoxify your skin (1 to 2 times a week!)

- Eat healthy (Fruits, vegetables, quinoa, etc.)

For a "Glow" complexion with Make Up on your face (British version requires), some good tips are to remember. At first, favor a light make-up with a thin layer of foundation (in line with your shade of course and your skin type), a little bit of blush or powder on the cheeks to add light. Finally, you can apply a natural lipstick preferably and voila. Even in the middle of winter you will have a fresh, radiant complexion, ready to take lots of images of you and your perfect skin.

Last tip and not least, massage your face. Performing movements ensures better penetration of care into all layers of your skin and also acts on the blood flow of your face. When you use your serum, apply by dabbing your skin, ditto for your moisturizer. Then perform a few circular movements without forgetting the neck. Work your way up from the base of your neck to your chin and then your face

Since we are very nice, we give you this little advice to tighten the pores of the skin. Faced with dilated pores, only one beauty technique: the steam bath. These small openings that are created will be effectively repaired thanks to this. This steam bath is very easy to perform, water not too hot and two or three drops of essential oil of sandalwood or bergamot and then keep the face slightly away from the steam and perform this treatment for about 3 minutes. You will see the effects are immediate. This facial treatment is suitable for all skin types and above all is 100% natural.
