How to gain confidence with S[æ]ve?

"Superficial". This is sometimes the word you hear when someone talks about you. "Because she puts on creams, because she wears makeup, because she spends a lot of time taking care of her body. "

You know the expression "Mens sana in Corpore sana"?



a healthy mind in a healthy body


Well, at S[æ]ve, we adhere to this adage 1000%: a healthy mind in a healthy body. It's not for nothing that we talk about physical exercises, outdoor light, magical foods in addition to our (over)natural products. We assume that the body is a precious vessel that allows us to enjoy life.

Thanks to it, we can look, eat, sleep, feel and these stuffs in order to learn, understand, cultivate, love and enjoy Life. Taking care of one's skin, one's appearance, one's muscles, one's diet, one's sleep are all factors of well-being.

One will never go without the other. The spirit cannot flourish in a body that is unloved or abandoned. And the reverse is also true.

.

So, ladies, don't feel guilty. You have every right to take care of your body. You have the right to pamper yourself. It is even a duty, if you want to live longer and in good conditions. Who wants to go far, spares its mount, right?

And then, we notice today that many people feel badly in their skin. Imagine that 67% of French people do not like their body. We find that so sad.

One of the first effective remedies against the lack of self-love is touch. Touching your body by massaging it, by giving it care allows you to bring back affection. Applying a cream then becomes more than a superficial gesture. It is a beautiful confession of Love to oneself.

With S[æ]ve, we even offer to restore what may have been damaged. All in softness, all in delicate scent, all in light texture, a new look at yourself and your authenticity.

And Pauline’credo, our founder, is to help you take care of yourself, without doing you any harm. By choosing products of natural origin, she has decided to promote the protection and immune defenses of the skin, while developing products with strong potential thanks to exceptional concentrations.

So be superficial. If that's the small price to pay to feel good about your body.

How to boost your immunity?

Did you say immunity? You might as well say we're listening right away.

At Saeve, the immune system is at the heart of our commitment. It's a philosophy. It's part of all the thinking we've passionately developed around our natural cosmetics, including the Immunox® patent.

Immunity is a precious sentinel for our body. But how does it work? What should we do to boost our immunity, in other words, how can we maintain and strengthen it? And what is the link between our botanical care and the support of this important mechanism?

Focus on this biological system, its maintenance and all of Saeve's work on this subject.

1 - What is the immune system?


Imagine a superb trendy villa on a green hillside facing the sea. It's warm, we feel good. Total harmony, we call it homeostasis.

The site is so beautiful that sometimes people come in without being invited. It also happens that some of the staff member’s rebel. For our organism, this is called viruses, bacteria, parasites and internal dysfunctions.

To keep the peace, we have built an enclosure with cameras and hired tanked bouncers named macrophages and white blood cells. When an intruder manages to enter the compound, these sentinels swarm in, use tear gas and neutralize the offender. In our body, this phenomenon is the inflammatory reaction and phagocytosis. This is the innate immunity.

At the same time, other bouncers called lymphocytes register the identity of the intruder in a large database. If the bad guy comes back, he will be immediately apprehended with the same strategy as the first time. Inside of us, this phenomenon is called adaptive immunity.

We have just described the immune system between innate and acquired. It forges immunity, which is the capacity of protection of the organism against microbes, infections (such as respiratory infections which is one of the symptoms of the coronavirus) and diseases.

Now, let's take a closer look at how we can naturally boost our immunity and how to maintain it.

2 - How to boost your immunity naturally on a daily basis?


Are you wondering what are the appropriate gestures to strengthen your immune system? Follow the guide.

  • As simple as it may seem, the content of the plate is still a must. It is like a huge free fitness room for our cells. It must be varied, balanced, enriched with organic and quality foods. A healthy diet is therefore essential! Eat fruits, vegetables, fish, good vegetable oils and semi-complete cereals.
  • Which essential nutrients will boost our immunity? Vitamins A, C, E and D are lymphocyte boosters. And bim! Zinc, manganese, copper are your friends to help the natural reactions of the immune system and calm inflammatory reactions. You can find these trace elements and vitamins in certain food supplements. It is important to combine these supplements with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
  • Drink water from a good source, to avoid additional unnecessary bacteria.
  • Regular physical activity is a great way to boost your immunity! Studies have shown that exercising increases the concentration of lymphocytes in the blood. All you need is 30 minutes of exercise a day to feel good about your body and mind.
Strenghten your immunity daily
  • Make a cure of organic birch sap ! To detoxify and remineralize our body. It is harvested by hand at the arrival of spring, only during the 3 weeks of the ascending moon in March. Ideal for boosting your immunity naturally. Good to know: the sap does not contain allergens, unlike the buds; it can therefore be consumed without risk by people with allergies. To feel all the benefits, we advise you to make a cure of 3 weeks minimum.
  • Have eyes only for your bed. It has been shown that people who sleep 8 hours or more have better immune responses than others. Morpheus is your ally.
  • If possible, get away from all sources of stress. Say no to energy-hungry people and go for a walk in the green if possible, meditate, read, it is important to be able to refocus on the essential. Stress leads to the natural production of cortisol. Released in excessive quantities, this hormone tires the immune system.


  • 3 - The skin, the essential rampart of our immune system


    At Saeve, the skin is the nerve of our war. But what does this have to do with immunity? The skin is an integral part of our immune system. It is the protective enclosure of our dream villa. You'll agree that it plays an important role in the game.

    It benefits from various exceptional mechanisms to defend itself.

    The skin, the essential rampart of our immune system




    The skin has this fantastic faculty not to be very permeable. Only what must pass through is allowed! It also has the ability to peel off. And if we give it a hand, it's for the better. Have you ever tried the Purifying 2-in1 Exfoliating Mask from Pur Paradisi? This natural cosmetic care composed of purifying pink grapefruit extracts, wood pulp micro-beads and kaolin clay, helps our skin to get rid of dead cells gently.

    • The protein clan

     The skin has another great barrier. An armada of antimicrobial proteins and peptides, which destroy the membrane envelope of malignant cells. Hence the ingenious presence of a plant protein extract called fructan, derived from Dandelion and found in our Detox Officinale botanical range for luminous and healthy skin.

  • A biological force

    Composed of hundreds of good fighting bacteria, the skin flora called microbiota guarantees immunity. That's why 80% of our Saeve cosmetic products contain ferments and our botanical essence called Radiance Activating F90 Essence is enriched with friendly little Saccharomyces yeasts. New recruits among your sentinels and ideal for boosting immunity.

  • 4 - Saeve, a philosophy focused on strengthening the skin's immune system


    Before we even thought about the natural active ingredients of Mallow, Pink Grapefruit or Dandelion for our face care products, we worked on the Immunox® patent.

    Our innovative patent is made up of two magical botanical ingredients: fresh organic Birch sap and organic Chaga, known as the "mushroom of immortality". The union of these two botanical actives creates a naturally exceptional shield.

    Among other beneficial nutrients, the immortal Chaga is composed of beta-glucans. These molecules are incredible natural stimulators of the immune system and participate in the modulation of the actors of the innate immune reaction.

    The fresh Birch sap is rich in active molecules capable of soothing the skin and protecting it from free radicals. Internally taken, it also helps to eliminate toxins from the body to optimize our protection just like a detox.

    Thus, the Immunox® patent boosts immunity, in other words, it arms the skin and makes it the guardian of our tranquility. The highest concentrations are found in our Saeve serums. There is some in all our day creams and other cosmetic products.

    And don't forget that fighting dehydration, acne, pimples, blackheads and spots is a solid way to keep our skin healthy.


    A repaired and intact skin is a guarantee of an optimized protection.

    Close protection mode, kindness activated.

    Our botanical serums, the beauty gesture not to miss!
    Saeve natural skincare serums

    Is it really necessary? Is it really reasonable? When you are new to cosmetics, serums are always a question mark. It is often the most expensive product in the range. Isn't it an unnecessary luxury? Isn't the cream enough?

    However, if you had to invest in only one product, it is this one. It is the spearhead of your routine. It is the magic wand of the Good Look Fairy. It is the arrow of the Beauty bow. The serum must imperatively be or become the pillar of your routine.

    Only a few drops give an incredible and thorough efficiency in record time. Its mission is to target your problems in a much more precise way than a cream. No wonder it is considered the Holy Grail of aesthetics. A small gesture for big effects.

    You have a lot of questions, right? We have decided to give you answers about how and why serums, but also to present our botanical serums to guide you in your purchases.

    You should know that all our face serums are concentrated in fresh organic Birch sap and organic Chaga, our Immunox® patent. A beneficial complexion illuminator and natural beauty revelator, it complements other specific ingredients at the heart of our serums.

    What is a serum?

    A serum is a cosmetic product much more loaded with active molecules than a cream. Its texture is finer and more fluid. The aim is to facilitate its assimilation and penetration towards the lower layers of the epidermis.

    Its conception thus requires choosing target ingredients in a precise molecular form. The aim is not to weigh down the skin, but to facilitate the exchange of active ingredients. The making of a serum therefore calls for advanced technology to allow its concentration and optimal absorption.

    Did you know that our botanical serums have the highest concentration of active ingredients on the market? Like botanical bombs!

    What is the purpose of a serum?

    The purpose of creams is to protect the skin. It is like an insulator, a protective screen. It's a bit like the pretty glove we wear in winter to protect our hands from the cold. 

    The serum is there to treat a specific problem. We expect a face serum to have a targeted action. It can be pigmentation spots or a severe lack of hydration. The serum treats what most characterizes our skin.

    On the other hand, be aware that a serum without a cream is like a sword in the water for your skin. The cream creates the surface conditions for the serum to work. On its own, it can even dry out your skin. So, serum goes with cream inevitably, which is the last step in the routine and will provide the necessary nutrition.

    How do I use a serum?


    Four to five drops are enough for each application. Choose to apply the drops directly to the face before gently spreading the product. You can also place the serum in the palm of your hands and gently press it on your skin.

    Be aware that cell repair and renewal functions take place at night. If you really don't have time in the morning, choose to apply your serum in the evening, if not twice a day.

    Since our botanical serums have the same type of texture, they can be applied in any order. You can also use different serums in the morning and evening. Prefer protective face serums during the day and more restructuring ones at night.

    And even if it seems logical, apply your serums on clean skin, totally free of impurities.
