Science can help in many ways, thanks to it we are able to develop new, more powerful and effective skincare formulae. But we often forget that simple gestures that may seem insignificant have the power to preserve our health and our skin. 

Discover 7 lifestyle habits for healthier, brighter glowing skin.

#1: Cleanse your skin 

The skin is the body's largest organ and is subject to various aggressions every day, such as pollution, dust particles, wind, and sudden temperature changes.
Cleansing the skin will help to ensure protection to your skin and help to make it beautiful and healthy.

How to get a skin face clean and fresh for your day-to-day?

In the morning, get a fresh skin feeling.

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

Use Oxybiome, our micellar water that respects skin microbiota and skin’s natural pH. Thanks to its excellent skin tolerance, we recommend applying it daily to clean, cleanse and soothe your skin. Use onto the face and eyes with a cotton pad in the morning and evening on dry skin and follow by your morning skincare. Enjoy your day!

Before getting to bed, effectively removes makeup.

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

Choose our all-in-one cleansing foam called Advanced Cleanser. Then, moisten your skin face with lukewarm water, apply two pea-sized amounts of it and massage for a few minutes gently and rinse. Now you can appreciate feeling purified skin with a pleasant feeling of hydration. Good night! 

#2: Maintain a good hydration level

Throughout the day, your skin faces external environmental aggressions on a daily basis, but one of its principal functions is to prevent water loss from the body. Sports activities, climate and work are some of the most common factors which can lead to epidermal water loss. 

How to maintain a good hydration level? 

Although food and drinks may provide some hydration, water circulating in your body must reach the dermis. The dermis acts as a reservoir and supplies the epidermis with all the necessary nutrients while protecting against mechanical injury. These nutrients are transferred to the outermost layers of the epidermis to provide hydration to each cell. Water is a vital molecule for enabling the skin to ensure its own defense, immunity and the appropriate and coordinated function of its whole cellular structure. Dehydrated skin can be characterized by irritations and an uncomfortable sensation. Lipids are also essential in helping to treat dehydrated skin. Scientific evidence has shown the correlation between moisturization and dry skin. Therefore, topical application of hydrating and nourishing creams is an excellent way to compensate for the water/lipids loss in your skin.

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

Ingredients provided through Dermaceutic products will regenerate your skin's capacities to retain water/lipids for healthier and smoother skin. Dermaceutic is committed to formulating high-performance moisturizers that intensively repair, care, nourish, soothe and restore for optimal skin comfort. By offering innovative and tailored textures based on the latest dermatological research, our hydrating and nourishing formulas are adapted to all different skin types.

Choose the right skincare product depending on your skin type and apply it every day: Derma Defense with SPF 50 intensely hydrates skin, homogenizes skin tone and protects against UV rays. Hyal Ceutic is ideal for dehydrated skin and suitable for combination with oily skin. Regen Ceutic or C25 to prevent signs of skin aging. 

#3: Favour a healthy diet with enough antioxidants

Antioxidants are essential for preventing or slowing this damage. They help to prevent signs of skin aging, boost the skin’s radiance, and increase firmness. Signs of skin aging are the most common skin complaint.
Find them in a healthy and balanced diet and our innovative skincare solutions.

How to get enough antioxidants in your life? 

Focus on fruit and vegetables, wholegrain cereals, lean proteins, healthy fats such as avocado, nuts and olive oil
In addition, it is important to note the benefits and antioxidants that different vitamins can provide:
Vitamin A: plays an important role in cell growth and the health of cells. It is found in carrots, sweet potatoes or spinach.
Vitamin B2: Helps maintain a good level of collagen. Can be found in salmon, beef, cereals or bananas.
Vitamin C: Protects the skin from sun damage by helping to boost collagen production and form the skin barrier. Can be found in citrus fruits, kiwi fruit and broccoli.

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

: The application of concentrated antioxidants on your skin helps to reveal your skin’s natural glow. Dermaceutic C25 cream contains a powerful concentrate of antioxidants offering multiple benefits and is essential to boost skin and maintain a healthy balance.


#4: Repair fragilized skin face, neck, low neck and hands

After professional aesthetic treatment, you may need expert advice for an optimal and accelerated recovery since your skin is drier and more fragile than usual. Depending on the invasiveness or not of the aesthetic procedure, your skin is considered fragilized and sensitive, indicating that regimen skincare must be adopted to protect your skin. Therefore, your skin needs to be rapidly repaired through a reepithelization process. This procedure enables protection and prevents infections and the development of micro-organisms responsible for inflammation. This is known as the healing process. The aim is to prevent or minimize complications and ensure rapid recovery. A careful maintenance program is therefore crucial in helping your skin to maintain all its structural and functional characteristics. 

How to repair your skin? 

It is important to adopt a specific skincare protocol to bring it essential actives for a good skin recovery maintain a good hydration level on all visible skin parts: face, neck, low neck, and hands! Thanks to a strong collaboration with numerous skin experts and extensive clinical testing, Dermaceutic develops high-performance formulae containing first-class ingredients which boost the skin's natural power to protect and repair itself. 

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

#5 Protect your skin from sun exposure

Of the solar radiation that reaches the earth up to 95% is UVA and 5% is UVB. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin and play a major role in the skin's aging process by causing wrinkles and sunspots. UVB rays, on the other hand, are mainly responsible for sunburn and skin redness. They play an important role in the development of skin cancers, including melanoma.
These rays are present all year round and regardless of the weather, they are responsible for what is called photoaging. Therefore, it is important to protect your skin every day with a high SPF.

How to protect your skin from sun exposure?  

At Dermaceutic we recommend you protect your skin every day as you are permanently exposed to the sun’s UV rays. Studies show that even driving around or being indoors, there is still exposure to certain rays. Therefore, it is vital that a good sunscreen is integrated into your daily skincare protocol. An effective sunblock is classified as a broad-spectrum sunblock. It should provide protection against UVA and UVB rays at the least. It should also be defined as having at least an SPF of 50. 

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

We offer highly effective, everyday solutions to protect your skin from the sun. Our expertise in dosing and combining premium actives enables us to ensure optimized product effectiveness, try our Sun Ceutic 50+ or its tinted version!

#6 Manage your stress

The skin acts as a catalyst for our emotions. Bursts of stress can lead to skin eruptions such as eczema, psoriasis or acne. When under stress, our bodies produce more cortisol, more commonly known as the stress hormone. This can trigger skin inflammation. Psychological stress can also have an impact on skin aging. Although there is no clear evidence, studies show that the stress-related immune response increases the production of reactive oxygen species and DNA damage, which contributes to premature skin aging. 

How to do manage your stress? 

There are many natural ways to manage stress, such as meditation and exercise. Taking breaks from your daily routine to take time for yourself is also a good way to center yourself and minimize stress for a healthier life and skin.

Dermaceutic’s aesthetic tip:

Take a “me time” to relax and avoid stress while you pamper your skin with our Mask 15. We've been inspired by ancient skincare rituals like a clay mask, but we've gone a step further with our innovative formulae. Our Mask 15 purifies the skin by removing imperfections and dead skin cells. Salicylic and glycolic acids, combined with bentonite, reduce excess oiliness and the appearance of large pores. 

#7 See a dermatologist once a year

When you want to succeed in a recipe you follow the instructions, right? It is the same to get a healthy and beautiful skin, you need to get the best advice from a professional.
Your skin is a spectacular organ. It defenses your body against infection, protects other organs, warms you up and cools you down. Your skin sends messages about how healthy you are inside. If you take the time to consult a dermatologist, you will be able to take care deeply of your skin as the doctor will diagnose, identify symptoms, and treat more than 3,000 conditions that affect your skin.  

How to do it? Plan as much in advance as possible for your appointment as dermatologists are quite busy and prepare for your meeting: Notify with what is new, changing, or unusual on your skin, like spots, dark brown spots or moles. Think to remove any make-up and nail polish to let him see whatever he needs to check.
