Skin sensitivity and the seasons, how do they influence changes?
You have probably already noticed that your skin has different needs depending on the time of year. The passage from one season to another can definitely affect our skin. Of course, there are some basic rules to keep your skin healthy all year long, such as deep cleansing in the morning and evening and moisturizing your skin. These gestures are essential throughout the year to ensure healthy skin!
However, changes in temperature and external conditions influence the appearance of your skin. Here is how to take good care of your skin according to the four seasons.
We are now saying goodbye to the cold winter season and welcoming a little warmer weather. However, despite the gradual return of warm weather, the temperature is rather windy and summer is not yet upon us!
When spring arrives, our skin tends to be quite dry because of the winter cold. The solution? Moisturize your skin morning and night without exception. The goal is to allow the skin to regain its suppleness and elasticity. It is also recommended to exfoliate to remove the dead skin patches that may have accumulated on your skin.
To exfoliate your skin, we recommend our argan and essential oil cleanser and scrub. This soft exfoliant is based on argan oil and Ghassoul clay which will moisturize your skin and soften it to allow it to find its natural balance. It also provides antioxidants to prevent damage that may have been caused by external aggressions. It is everything your skin needs following winter, as it allows your skin to regain its usual healthy glow and radiance!
Now that spring is over, it’s time for the warm, humid weather of summer. Ah, this season so appreciated by all! When the warm weather is upon us and the hot sun warms up our skin, the rays are one of the factors that affect the skin the most. During this season, the most important thing is to protect the skin and to moisturize it.
It is therefore recommended to wear a face cream containing sunscreen or to put sunscreen under your usual cream. In addition, you should continue to moisturize your skin morning and night. However, you can adapt your routine with a slightly lighter cream during the day and a richer cream at night to deeply moisturize your skin.
We must not forget to protect and moisturize our body which is also exposed to UV rays. To fight against dryness and dehydration, we recommend one of our most popular products our argan oil with lemon verbena and green tea. This oil will deeply moisturize your skin, as it is rich in essential fatty acids such as omegas-6 as well as vitamin E.

This product has a fresh and invigorating smell and also acts as an anti-cellulite treatment. It is a multi-use oil, you can use it on the skin, hands, nails, cuticles and even your lips.
The warm season is coming to an end and autumn is starting to appear. The leaves on the trees start to fall and the cold weather starts to gradually return. Fall is probably the most neutral season for the skin, in the sense that it’s not too cold or too hot. So it’s a perfect time to rebalance and care for your skin before winter arrives.
If you’re wondering how, you can strengthen your skin, the answer is simple: by giving it all the necessary nutrients. To nourish your skin, we recommend our ultra-hydrating day cream with organic argan oil and green tea. This cream is an intensive moisturizer, designed to deeply hydrate the skin thanks to the combination of two of its main ingredients: organic argan oil and shea butter. In addition, it promotes cell regeneration while working on the firmness of your skin. Once applied, your skin will be illuminated and will give off a subtle scent of green tea.
The cold and snowy season is here. This is probably the season that has the greatest impact on our skin. You have probably already noticed how skin becomes drier during the winter, sometimes even more reddish and dehydrated. Skin is simply more prone to blemishes during this time.
The key to getting through the winter? Applying a rich cream to protect it from the cold. It’s time to replace your lighter creams with even more moisturizing and rich creams. If your skin is really dry, you can even wear your night cream morning and night, as it usually contains even more nourishing ingredients and will help prevent tightness in the skin.
To survive the winter and give your skin the moisture it needs, opt for our divine night cream with prickly pear and verbena seeds. This cream will regenerate your skin while helping to reduce the appearance of certain signs of aging (such as wrinkles and fine lines). It is also useful to regain the original tone and intensely nourish the skin.
