Anti-aging cream, understand and slow down the aging of the face

Anti aging cream for womenRemember when Sharon Stone said that expression lines were sexy? Wisdom had spoken. It seems that men even find it attractive because it proves that we are authentic and capable of welcoming emotions.

Mature skin can be fresh and radiant if you take care of it. We can even continue to put makeup on it if we like to enhance its bloom.

However, we hate our wrinkles. They are synonymous of passing time. They can give us anxieties. They make us think about the end. Some mornings, when we are upset and not awake, they make us harder and sadder. As if our face was falling like the branches of some weeping willows.

Let's stop this melodrama right now. Let's be positive. Of course, wrinkles are a natural phenomenon of aging. It is unavoidable. But we can act on its process and its expression. There are indeed different types of wrinkles and depending on their nature and depth, there are several areas of action available to us.

You want to ensure the longevity of your facial skin and minimize the marks of time? Read our article.

You will understand why facial skin ages and, above all, how you can intervene. Hygiene of life and anti-aging creams Saeve in the bathroom, we provide you with all the information to remain serene without consuming botox!

What are wrinkles and how do they form?

To fully understand what happens with wrinkles, you must first understand the skin’s structure.

You've certainly been taught that the skin is made up of 3 layers. From the deepest to the most superficial, we have the hypodermis, the dermis and the epidermis.

The dermis is made up of connective tissue. We also have it around each of our bones and organs. This tissue has a high density. When you look at it under the microscope, it is wonderful. We see a more or less dense mesh of collagen and elastin fibers, filled with a nourishing liquid, the matrix, composed of water, proteins and carbohydrate molecules, including hyaluronic acid.

Over time, the density of the mesh changes due to a lack of nutrients and a slower cell renewal. This creates cracks and breaks in the fibers, the repercussions of which can be seen on the surface of the skin through the epidermis.

From this, small furrows and sags are created, which are called "wrinkles".

Why does my skin age?

Genetics plays an important role in our anti-aging heritage. However, this factor does not seem to be very important. However, there are other internal factors on which we can just let go:

  • The hormonal factor

In women, this is a major subject of skin modification. Hormones influence the quality of our skin throughout our lives, such as during adolescence or pregnancy. But as we age, our bodies are less likely to produce estrogen. These female sex hormones play an important role in the elasticity and hydration of the skin, hair and nails. Estrogen maintains the production of collagen and elastin by the skin. In women, hormonal production decreases from the age of 25 and drops significantly around the age of 45.

  • Cell division

When we constantly use the same device, these components wear out or become fragile. It is exactly the same with our cells. As we age, the necessary materials and processes for cell division and replication are missing. The DNA itself becomes damaged by the amount of division and wear and tear on the extremities of chromosomes, called telomeres. With this in mind, don't forget that our facial skin products contain our Immunox® patent. This synergy combines fresh organic birch sap and organic chaga, the mushroom of immortality. Our Immunox® patent has been scientifically proven to protect cellular DNA and mitochondria, the little powerhouses of cells.

Are all wrinkles the same?

Obviously, there is an evolution in the appearance of ageing on the skin of the face. Fortunately for us, things happen slowly and gradually.

The first signs of ageing are seen on the areas where the skin is thinner. The eyes are often the first to be affected, with the appearance of dark circles and fine lines often due to dehydration. The skin is squared with small lines that are commonly called fine lines. They are easy to spot.

With time, life's events and emotions, expression lines settle in to give a real relief to our face. They make us human and alive. Don't be afraid of them, they are your personality. Lion's wrinkles, forehead creases, corners of the mouth, all these wrinkles are formed by daily use of the muscles of our face. This is how we recognize happy women 😉

Static wrinkles are those whose fold is marked and seems deep. It is necessary to know that their appearance is a sign that the evil is in depth. The supporting materials are completely altered. They are therefore irremediably installed.

What can I do to minimize the effects of time on my facial skin? 

There are dozens of small things you can do every day to preserve your youth and delay the effects of aging:

  • Sleep

As we explained in our post on night creams, sleep repairs and regenerates. If you go to bed late and you don't sleep well, your skin doesn't renew its cells properly. So, it's simple, go to sleep!

  • Tobacco, pollution and pesticides

Skin that is clogged with multiple toxins is also less likely to renew itself. The body has the natural ability to eliminate. Unless you add a bunch of extra parasites, such as pollution particles and outside smoke, which are invisible enemies! Think No Tox rather than Detox. And if it's unavoidable, think Detox Officinale, which will revive the radiance of your complexion and depollute your skin altered by external aggressions...

  • The sun: No real surprise.

We know that prolonged exposure to the sun directly impacts the skin's cellular DNA. Clearly, not only do the cells slow down their multiplication, but they can even stop doing so. As for the phenomenon of dehydration, it is more than obvious. Hats, umbrellas, sunglasses and protective creams count among your basic weapons...

  • Sugar: Do you know the phenomenon of glycation?

It is when sugar molecules attach to proteins. Well, it's the same for your skin. Glucose attaches to collagen and hardens it. And collagen and elastin stick together and become more rigid. The skin sags, becomes flabby and the ptosis of the face is even more favorable. We encourage you to have a reasonable consumption of fast sugars and to favor slow-digesting foods.

What about Saeve's anti-aging barrier gestures?

Before the age of 35, you can start doing specific zoning. We have an unstoppable and innovative weapon for dark circles and lips. Do you know the Lifting Eye and Lip Contour Care from our Lift Pinaster line?

Anti aging cream for eyes

With its cold-effect applicator, this little wonder with a concentrated, unscented formula will correct the signs of aging around the eyes and lips. With its 3-in-1 power, this lifting care will act on installed wrinkles, firm the skin and relax the eyes by reducing bags and dark circles. The skin is plumped up and fine lines are filled in, as if by magic.

  • Daily cleansing

It is imperative that your skin is clean and free of all residue and dead cells. Our Skin Perfecting Whitening Foam Perfect Pisum is the cleanser of the situation. It exfoliates, soothes and brightens thanks to titrated pea extracts, which have lightening and pigmentary spot correcting properties.

  • The unbelievable mask

The moisturizing mask could be a no-brainer. However, we have even more convincing on hand: the Intense Detox Mask. This mask is a perfect for delicate skins, and it releases the nasty pollutants we mentioned earlier. Say goodbye to free radicals! Make way for light and healthy cell regeneration thanks to Dandelion.

  • Saeve anti-aging care

The Lift Pinaster line is a natural rejuvenation treatment. Its Garden Next Door ingredient is the Maritime Pine, rich in stabilized polyphenols called OPC. These have the particularity of binding to collagen fibers to prevent their oxidation and inflammation. Thus, their integrity is protected.

As a bonus, fragmented plant hyaluronic acid has been added for better penetration into the lower layers of the epidermis to fill in wrinkles from the inside. And to complete this nutritious cocktail, we added tripeptides to densify the skin.

These fabulously rejuvenating little gems are found in the line's flagship products: the Firming Anti-Aging Botanical Serum and the Redensifying Night Cream, which are so softly textured and generously relaxing.

How to sublimate your makeup, the perfect skin care routine
Skincare and makeup

 We love and adore makeup... What a joy to highlight your mouth with a beautiful lipstick. Or to get a Sophia Loren-like doe eye...

Progress has allowed us to enjoy new complexion products that are thinner and lighter, with natural results. We can use primers and finishing powders to ensure a velvety skin texture. Textures, scents, fixation, everything is constantly studied to make our lives easier.

However, beautiful makeup can go bad if your skin is not maintained. It's a bit like the analogy we'll make with a nice wallpaper. If the walls have not been sanitized and prepared beforehand, the wallpaper will not take well, will wrinkle and may even look bad.

The same goes for your skin. The better you take care of it, the better your makeup will look. It won't run into fine lines, it won't turn brown and will stay stable.

So today, we have decided to remind you of the perfect skin care routine to adopt every morning before you put on your makeup; so that your time spent enhancing your beauty is crowned with success.

The perfect makeup routine, it's now.

1 - Cleansing for flawless makeup?

The interest of cleansing has a double function. The first thing to do in the morning to start your routine is to clean your face. During the night, your skin has done its work of cell renewal. There are therefore small dead skins on the surface. Your sebum has also drained the toxins.

It is therefore unthinkable to imagine applying makeup directly without having taken care to rid the skin of the "waste" it has been working to eliminate. Not only would your skin texture be too thick, but there would be risks of creating occlusions of your seborrheic canals. Imperfections would be bound to appear.

And then, in fact, if you wear makeup every day, it is imperative to remove it at night. Even if cosmetics manufacturers are increasingly careful to offer products that are light in both composition and texture, makeup can clog your pores over time. So, if you're a makeup enthusiast, remove your makeup every night and cleanse your skin every morning.

Choose a simple, gentle cleanser for all skin types like our Hydra Malva Makeup Removal Cleansing Gel, which will do its job gently, but properly.

And to complete the cleansing, use our Hydrating Micellar Water from the same line with pure hyaluronic acid, which helps rehydrate the skin. Makeup dries out the skin. Speaking of cleansing, don't forget to flush your makeup brushes with water at least twice a week. A tip? Use your daily shower to soap your brushes. No need for specific products. Your shower gel is more than enough. By the way, have you ever tried our two shower gels?

2 - Intense hydration for thinner skin

As we said before, it goes without saying that makeup can tend to dry out the skin. All powder products such as illuminators, blushes and eyeshadows will inevitably absorb water from your pores. So no makeup without taking care to moisturize your skin at least: serum and cream are mandatory.

But it's even more important for the thin skin of your face. For example, the thinness of dark circles, which has no hypodermis. Therefore, the skin of the dark circles is thinner, more fragile and prone to dehydration, especially as you get older. Imagine the disappointment, after spending time working on your complexion, if two colored and streaked dark circles look back at you in the mirror.

The same is true for the contour of the mouth. As long as you smoke, are in overheated environments, and forget to drink regularly, fine lines appear. This is how lipstick gets into creases and gives the impression that you have applied it incorrectly.

Moisturizing and filling are the work of our Lift Pinaster Lifting Eye and Lip Contour Care, which nourishes and smoothes these fragile tissues thanks to extracts of Maritime Pine. It boosts the formation of collagen and natural hyaluronic acid.

No application of concealer or lipstick without prior deep moisturizing for a star result.


3 - Give your skin a detox, a routine not to be forgotten 

 

If you are a Beauty passionate and you wear makeup every day, we advise you to detox your skin regularly. Makeup, but also fatigue, stress and pollution tend to make our face grey due to an excess of toxic substances and dead skin. A gray face means a denatured makeup.

We therefore suggest 2 solutions:

 

4 - Professional tips in addition to a care routine

As you can see, to make your makeup look its best, it is imperative to take care of your skin every day. Have an impeccable beauty routine. Give yourself this imperative to be even more beautiful. On your skin, your makeup will be even more harmonious and luminous.

However, we have decided to give you two beauty care tips. The lighter your makeup is, the more it will blend in, the more perfect it will be. Makeup should be noticed, but not imposed on the face.

Skincare routine for makeup

  • Create your own BB cream

It is possible to create your day cream at home. Simply mix a dab of your moisturizing day cream with a bit of your tinted concealer with a brush. The finish is extremely light, melts on the face and gives a very natural look. For every day, it's perfect. And for the Make-up Artist who can't go out on the weekend without being primed, it's a great solution to blur the complexion without being too much.

  • Create your own blush serum

You may not know this pro makeup artist's tip for applying blush yet. On your hand, apply two drops of Hydra Malva 24 Hour Soothing Moisturizing Botanical Serum. Then, use your brush to pick up some powder blush. Gently rub the brush loaded with pigments over the serum. Finally, apply your blush by gently brushing your cheekbones. Fresh effect guaranteed. This tip is especially great at the end of the day, if you have to go out but can't get back home meanwhile. It will bring back a healthy glow thanks to the hyaluronic acid for the whole evening and cheeks of young girls.



Just because you love makeup doesn't mean it has to be your enemy. Makeup doesn't have to cause pimples or dull your complexion. On the contrary, it is there to magnify your face.
