How to protect my skin from the sun?

If you usually put on sun cream every time you go to the beach, it should be no different in your everyday life. Discover our advice and follow our tips!

Sun cream or SPF face cream?

Even though it does wonders for morale, the sun is far from being your skin’s best friend. Its UVA and UVB rays are harmful to skin, causing accelerated aging and the premature appearance of wrinkles. In other words: the sun is the main cause of skin aging.

To limit the risks, there’s only one thing to do: protect your skin with suitable products.

There are two types of face cream: sun care products and creams with SPF (Sun Protection Factor).

SUN CREAM: to be used whenever you’re exposed to the sun for an extended period of time.

At the beach, at a weekend barbecue or on the tennis court, that’s the product you need. It’s also the right product if your job requires you to spend your days outdoors.

You should apply a generous amount on our face, the equivalent of a teaspoon, and you also have to reapply it regularly, after swimming and after wiping yourself with a towel, for example.

CREAMS WITH SPF: to be used daily, as soon as the sun comes out.

This type of product has a dual purpose, it provides protection against sun rays while having specific benefits, such as moisturizing, firming and antipollution.

Therefore, SPF skin care should a part of your beauty routine. Apply every morning after your serum. It can replace your day cream. If you have dry skin, we recommend that you use your usual day cream and then apply the SPF product.

Our tips for beautiful, tanned skin!

Here are some tips to help you achieve a beautiful tan. They combine diet and beauty routines for a result you’ll be raving about!

  • Fill your plate with colorful foods like carrots, melons, apricots, etc. These foods contain beta carotene, which stimulates melanin synthesis. It’s the season, make the most of it! Good for the body, a colorful plate also makes your meal a joyful and appetizing experience. Enjoy!
  • Don’t forget to exfoliate regularly. This applies to both the face and body.
  • Moisturize thoroughly, either with serums or masks. Anti-aging after-sun care gives you a much-needed moisture boost.
  • Wearing a hat and sunglasses also helps to protect your skin. Don’t set aside these summer essentials!

For the more impatient ones wanting to look tanned quickly, or for those who struggle to get a tan, our Beautifying Self-Tanning Lotion is the solution. Before using it, make sure you exfoliate and moisturize your skin the day before. Apply evenly and wash your hands afterwards. Worried about streaks? Apply the self-tanner gradually, starting with a small amount of product per area. If you use self-tanner on your body, avoid the knees, elbows and heels.


Sunscreen doesn’t prevent you from tanning!

It’s recommended to respect the expiration dates displayed on the packaging of your sun care products and to replace them every year in order to guarantee an optimal level of protection.
