The skin, this smooth, resistant, stretchy, waterproof adornment that hides us and dresses us in a decor of nearly 1.7 m2, undergoes multiple upheavals in 24 hours. It flakes off, dehydrates, defends itself, repairs and renews itself.
But when exactly do these actions take place? This is the question to ask yourself in order to be able to provide the right nutrients at the right time, and thus get the most out of cosmetic treatment. Here are the main phases of its activity
The skin is an early riser
5 am - 8 am: the skin rises early, as soon as it wakes up it begins to activate its defenses to prepare for the busy day ahead (light radiation, pollution, thermoregulation, etc.). It is therefore important to help him to protect himself by first applying a tonic or a treatment water which restores his hydrolipidic film then a cream which gives him all the means to fight fully against both oxidation and dehydration. and inflammation.
A productivity peak at the end of the morning
8 am-1 pm: his blood circulation is very lively and sebum peaks appear at the end of the morning and result in skin that will tend to shine. It is therefore important to choose a cream with a fine texture to limit this effect. The skin's pH becomes acidic throughout the day to protect against bacterial attack.
Always more effective after a nap
3 p.m. - 8 p.m: Once the fatigue is over, the skin restarts a bit like us in the afternoon, so we help it maintain its hydration. Think about drinking, drinking and drinking again! Whatever the external conditions, the skin becomes dehydrated. Even without any physical effort, the skin eliminates about 1 to 1.5 liters of water per day!
The calm before the storm
8 pm-11pm: cellular energy drops. If you follow up with a night out, you need a big boost with a good energizing mask to restore radiance and light to your skin. If you're more of a relaxing evening at home, prepare your skin for a good night's sleep. Cleaning is essential to eliminate dead cells, sebum, pollution, etc… and thus unclog the pores in order to allow the penetration of night care.
The skin works mainly at night
11 p.m. to 5 a.m: It's the cell repair and renewal boom, peaking around 2 a.m. Hence the importance of applying care that is highly concentrated in restorative active ingredients. Choose oily serums because the massage stimulates cell division. Know that te hour of sleep acquired before midnight is twice as beneficial for the body and the skin.
Of course, the repair work is daily but it will take between 30 and 45 days for the epidermis to renew itself completely. So don't wait because the more you take care of your skin, the more it will give you back!
