Limit the boomerang effect and mishmash of imperfections after returning from vacation (and prolonged exposure)? It's possible. The procedure for healthy skin, without imperfections and anything but stressed at the start of the school year.
Every year, the same catchphrase: afternoons lounging by the pool, whole days at sea trying out new water sports or feasting on the sunset on the terrace ... The skin tans delicately (as long as it does not take of Sun burn) and your glow is at the height of everything you dreamed of: golden complexion, smooth skin texture - no need for makeup during these few weeks out of time, you take advantage (and you are right)!
Only, at the arrival of autumn, after a few weeks at the office or in teleworking locked up, glow down assured: oily skin, dull complexion, small acne pimples and mishmash of imperfections… What are all these reasons for? inconvenience?
The Boomerang effect
It is the Boomerang effect, the rebound effect, the backlash caused by exposure to the sun. Sun, which dries up the skin (goodbye to excess sebum) and considerably reduces the appearance of blemishes. The epidermis thickens to protect itself from UV rays, but eventually the pores become clogged and the rest ... you know it.
How to limit imperfections at the start of the school year?
Step 1: a good skin cleansing
Cleanse your skin well, it's the first step to healthy and (almost) blemish-free skin! Beware of aggressive care (especially formulated with soap), the idea is to cleanse without altering the hydrolipidic film of the epidermis (which is the external protective barrier of the skin!). We start with a double cleansing to remove all the fatty substances encrusted on the face (make-up, pollution, excess sebum, etc.) with a cleansing oil such as the Day Over (infused with CBD) and the gentle cleansing gel like Green Fizz, cannaflavins, vitamin C and hemp oil to replenish the skin's hydrolipidic film. Finally, if necessary, apply a two-phase lotion (half-oil, half-water texture) to eliminate residues (and therefore free the pores), soothe, moisturize and tone the skin. Our little favorite? the Gender Fluid, based on hemp oil, cannabis sativa floral water and hyaluronic acid, a shot of freshness to tone the skin of the face and boost its glow!
Step 2: an antioxidant treatment
The watchword: treat, or prevent! Why the serum? Both fluid and very loaded with active ingredients, it is the deepest treatment, the one that acts in the most distant layers of the epidermis. It targets very specific issues, such as imperfections.
Choosing an anti-oxidant serum means giving yourself a little wand to fight against all the external aggressions that alter the quality of the skin: exposure to UV, pollution, lack of sleep, stress ... The skin defends itself more easily, and the complexion remains fresh and luminous! Good news: enriched with cannabis terpenes (the odorous molecules of hemp, antibacterial and antifungal, therefore very purifying) and zinc (the trace element with antioxidant properties, both healing and anti-inflammatory), the Cannabooster Detox serum is the perfect ally of an anti-blemish beauty routine!
Step 3: hydration
Even if your skin type is not dry (and if it is, it constantly needs to be nourished), after a few days or weeks of exposure to the sun, or swimming in the sea and in swimming pools with chlorine, your skin needs to be hydrated! Even oily skin needs it. The trick: opt for a light texture, like the Narcotic Cream - half aqueous phase, half oily phase, which provides water and fat (Omega 3 and Omega 6) and hydrates both the upper and lower layers of the epidermis. The last step in an anti-blemish routine after the summer, and the barrier against all aggressions!
At HO KARAN, we are convinced that beauty is lived inside and out. In September, in addition to a beauty routine, take care of your mind ! If your skin is luminous in summer, it is also because you are more relaxed. Book a massage in a salon - as the No Stress Studio - to get off to a good start, try out new activities (such as meditation or the best anti-stress ritual of our founder Laure, journaling), try out new sports, adapt your diet (avoid foods that are too sweet or inflammatory such as alcohol, cow's milk, refined carbohydrates, red meat, etc.), drink plenty of water, and bet on fresh fruits and vegetables! In our HO KALM podcast, our guests (Marion Seclin, Clément Dumais, Valérie Tribes ...) each time deliver their anti-stress rituals. A mine of inspiration for all those who seek to live more peaceful (sine qua non of a beautiful skin at the start of the school year)!
