Winter is drawing to a close, and with it the cold weather. It has long been proven that our skin is subject to all kinds of external aggressions, which exacerbate the ageing process of our skin. Tobacco, sun, pollution, diet and hereditary factors all play a vital role in the radiance, tone and texture of our skin… in short, in its beauty.
Many of you ask us during consultations: “Doctor, are cosmetic products effective? Let’s find out.

The primary aim of cosmetology is to cleanse, exfoliate, stimulate or protect the various layers of the skin. Doctors trained in aesthetics unanimously agree that daily use of cosmetic products is essential from a very young age, even if it is not enough on its own (remember to cleanse your skin properly, and in particular to remove make-up).

What are the objectives of cosmetics?

– Hydration is fundamental; it is the starting point for all active ingredients in cosmetology. (NMF, allantoin, lipoaminoacids).
– They must respect the skin barrier and consolidate the intercellular cement of the stratum corneum (cholesterol, triglycerides, essential fatty acids, ceramides).
– The anti-free radical action of a skincare product is also very important in the fight against oxidative stress.

A few tips:

– Use micellar water: it’s a two-in-one skin care product that removes impurities, traces of pollution and make-up from the skin in a single step.
– Cosmetic products sold in pharmacies are generally very good and less expensive.
– Choose skincare products that are adapted to your age, the quality and type of your skin, your lifestyle, etc;
– Choose products based on fractionated hyaluronic acid.
– Avoid added fragrances (risk of intolerance and allergy).
– Think about food supplements (vitamin C, omega 3, ginkgo biloba, selenium, magnesium, etc.)
– Prefer pump packaging (less preservatives, oxidation and bacterial proliferation).

And don’t forget :

– Avoid sun exposure, alcohol and tobacco.
– Moisturise your skin.
– Eat a healthy and varied diet.
