"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"?
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.
S[æ]ve your Skin, S[æ]ve your Mind!
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.
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 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.
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.

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.
Which serums for which skins?
Among our iconic products, our Soothing 24 Hour Hydrating Facial Serum is the serum that anyone who wants to bring comfort to their skin must have. Mallow, Apple, Magnolia, White Willow are the key ingredients of this serum, which soothes and above all awakens the skin's natural hydration functions.

"Saeve Bomb, Saeve Bomb, you're my Saeve Bomb..."
Let's face it, at Saeve, no beauty axis has been neglected. We prioritize all cases, especially those related to the advancing age of the skin.
So welcome to our beautiful forties and more!
The Immunox® patent, at the heart of Saeve's skin care products, is already a natural youth concentrate in itself. It combines the active botanical ingredients of fresh organic Birch sap and organic Chaga with powerful antioxidant, mitochondrial DNA repair and skin immune defense stimulating actions. With its direct effect against skin aging, our Immunox patent fights against "inflamm’aging" (the inflammation that accelerates skin aging). But we have gone one step further by creating the specific botanical Lift Pinaster range to fight the signs of aging.
Here are a few tips on how to preserve your skin in a natural way, in addition to our cosmetic treatments with exceptional botanical virtues.
1 - Younger skin, a healthy lifestyle required
To keep your youthfulness, it is imperative to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And if you are 30 years old when you read this, you should start following these recommendations now. You won't need to get any younger, because you will have preserved your skin and your body.
The more rested and smoothed out your appearance will be, the younger and fresher you will look.
2 - Skin aging due to the sun
As we age, our stocks of hyaluronic acid dwindle. The capture of water is much more difficult for the body and the skin. When we expose ourselves to the sun, we sweat, which causes us to lose water. This leakage of hydration is immediately seen and felt on the skin.
Moreover, the sun, and especially the UVA and UVB rays burn our little melanocytes. Hello brown spots! You know, the ones we hate most of all. They cling to our hands, our neckline and especially our face, making us look tired and older.
So, get ready to protect yourself! Hats, sunglasses, shade and a café terrace, good sun care renewed regularly during the day and above all refusal to expose yourself excessively to the sun in summer are your anti-wrinkle allies.
3 - The anti-aging benefits of omega 3 on the skin
Omega 3 are essential fatty acids. They are concentrates of youth. They also help to restore highly irritated skin. They will first of all benefit the cellular membranes by preserving their flexibility. They will play a role on the inflammation and calm the rednesses and irritations of undernutrition related to the advance in age. They participate in the fight against the aforementioned harmful effects of the sun.
You can find them in fatty fish. You can eat them up to 3 times a week. Salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna or herring... Also use good vegetable oils such as walnut, hemp or rapeseed oil. 1 tablespoon per day to be eaten raw to preserve their benefits.
4 - Keep a natural skin
We would like to remind you that there is a difference between facial expression wrinkles (which appear when you change your expression, for example when you smile or laugh) and age-related wrinkles. Before resorting to surgical techniques, consider that there are certain wrinkles that characterize you in your way of being and your life. These are beautiful. And if smoothing them out with regular wellness massages can be interesting, let them be. Too much surgery is not very pretty.
At Saeve, we like spontaneity and authenticity. Some things are inherently beautiful. Let's keep it that way.
5 - The botanical and natural rejuvenation of Lift Pinaster anti-aging cosmetics
Moisturizing the skin is essential, no matter what your skin type is! The lack of hydration is a godsend for wrinkle. Over time, wrinkles deepen and set in when they were not invited to.
Take back the power by moisturizing the skin of your face on the morning and night. In our Lift Pinaster line of natural cosmetics from Saeve, we've added low molecular weight fragmented hyaluronic acid for better penetration and assimilation by the skin. This ingredient is therefore a must for maintaining the skin's hydration and youthfulness.
And then, our titrated extract of Maritime Pine associated with the Immunox® patent (fresh sap of organic Birch and organic Chaga) is a pure wonder. It contains flavonoids, able to preserve collagen and fight against its destruction. It firms, tightens and densifies the skin. The perfect anti-aging routine!
We will give you a secret tip to optimize the action of hyaluronic acid. Before applying your Firming Anti-Aging Botanical Serum to your face, add moisture to your skin using our Radiance Activating F90 Essence. A splash of invigorating and balancing hydration before applying your concentrated serum and hop, hop, hop, the features are immediately tightened! Seal in the hydration with a cream afterwards.
And for the tiny, fragile skin of the eyes and lips, we have designed the Lifting Eye and Lip Contour Care. Equipped with a zamac applicator, it allows you to massage the skin around the eyes and lips to relieve and refresh it.
Sleeping Beauty will have to be on flick when she wakes up!
Saeve is on a quest for eternal youth...

We know... We know how much you want to get rid of your blackheads. In the winter, they ruin your life by giving your make-up a rough edge. In summer, they glow under your sun protection like luminous lights. And when you remove them, they come back. Nose, cheekbones, chin, forehead, we explain the causes of blackheads on the skin and how to get rid of them without stress and with Saeve.
What is a blackhead?
In the beginning was the pore. This tiny orifice is essential to the skin. It allows its breathing.
If we go back up through the channel of this little pore, deeper into the dermis, we find the hair follicle and the sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland is in charge of producing sebum, which moisturizes and protects the skin due to its pH, acting as a barrier against microbes.
In an ideal world where we live very happily, the pore, the hair follicle and the sebaceous gland live a quiet and smooth life.
However, the picture is not always so idyllic. In fact, depending on the person, we can find ourselves faced with two problems:
- Either the canal becomes internally clogged by excess sebum production happily mixed with dead skin. A blackhead is then formed.
- Or the pores of our skin are open wide like the beaks of hungry birds where everything rushes in. The canal is blocked externally.
In fine, the amalgam stuck in the canal will oxidize in the air to give us the famous blackhead, which exasperates us. Note that blackheads are not systematically associated with acne and that everyone can be concerned. They are often found on the nose and chin.
What lifestyle should I follow to keep my skin free of blackheads?
Of course, your pores may be dilated because you work in an overheated environment or because you are just getting older.
However, the denaturation or overproduction of sebum is also an expression of what you can ingest. Sebum is a lipid. The thicker or more acidic it is, the more likely it is to clog the seborrheic duct.
In the case of blackheads, it may be possible to suggest that a dietary adjustment should be made immediately.
First, check your hydration. Water drains and eliminates excesses, including those of the skin. Note that a dehydrated or malnourished skin will tend to become more rigid. It will therefore have difficulty eliminating sebum and will see its pores dilated.
1.25 liters per day is the minimum.
As far as food is concerned, anything that is processed and heavy during digestion leads to storage by the body in the form of fat. This can lead to a change in the nature of the sebum.
What key to eliminate blackheads? Targeted cleaning!
Quickly put away those fingers that we don’t want to see. Carefully avoid squeezing - shamelessly - your blackheads. Not only do you risk infecting the area and getting pimples. But you can also create sunburned lesions that will leave marks on your face.
You can't say we didn't warn you. Leave yourself alone. Go for a walk and when you get home, give your skin a thorough cleaning.
This is the first solution to fight blackheads: daily skin cleansing. To do this, we have created the Pur Paradisi range to get rid of the imperfections that spoil our lives.
At the heart of this purifying range with concentrated extracts of pink grapefruit titrated in fruit acids, it was obvious that we could not bypass the Purifying Cleansing Gel step.
Refreshing and soothing, this gel has a sebum-regulating action thanks to its zinc salts, astringent action with burnet and purifying action with pink grapefruit.
And to complete this cleansing and remove daily impurities, apply the Purifying Skin Perfecting Lotion. This gesture is ideal to perfect the cleaning with precision. It contains Lavandin for a disinfecting and healing effect on the skin. The skin texture is refined, and the pores are tightened.
Serum and mask, the blackheads' pet peeves
It is obvious that cleaning will not be enough to eradicate the problem in the lower layers of the skin. To calm down your dry-cleaning ardor, you'll have to dislodge the madmen.
To clear up blackheads without breaking them out, use the Purifying 2-in-1 Exfoliating Mask regularly.
During the application, the fine clays with absorbing properties will draw the impurities outwards. Then gently massage your face. Microbeads of wood bark will then exfoliate blackheads. Your skin will be free, liberated, refined and soft in just 10 minutes.
To stay in control, use the Anti-Imperfection Purifying Botanical Serum oil-free. Because treating deep down allows you to completely wrap up your routine. Our serum was awarded "Top Innovation" at the 2019-2020 Victoires de la beauté.
It is to be combined with the Purifying Botanical Fluid. The goal? A flawless skin in all circumstances. Concentrated in titrated Grapefruit Extract and Mandarin Nobiletine with purifying and sebum-regulating properties to help rebalance the skin and reduce all imperfections.
And if a pimple appears, don't panic, we have our SOS treatment, the Intensive Anti-Imperfection Corrector. With its localized and targeted action, it favors the reduction and disappearance of imperfections. This treatment is so effective that the skin's surface becomes clear, smooth and homogenous, as if nothing had happened.
And there you have it, your effective The Purifying Ritual "Zero Defect Skin", targeted with a sparkling fragrance. A heart of distilled essences of fresh Grapefruit and Petitgrain is softened by a hint of Lavender and White Musk, to give your skin and your morale a boost.
No more blackheads on the horizon!

Remember 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:
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?
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.
And never forget to treat your throat, neck and bust as well!

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:
- Every week, practice an Detox Officinale Intense Detoxifying Mask. It contains extracts of Dandelion . We have already written about all its benefits here. This mask has the particularity of emulsifying in 3 phases: an aqueous, an oily and a milky one to allow to get rid of the impurities in depth.
- And from time to time, treat your skin for a 3-week program of the Detox Anti-oxidant Ritual. In this box, you will find our Detoxifying Antioxidant Shield Botanical Serum and our Multi-Defense Detoxifying Cream SPF30, accompanied by the mask mentioned above as a gift. During this treatment, why not decide to avoid wearing makeup, in order to complete the detox process.
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.
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.
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.
Let the pink rise to your cheeks, thanks to us!

The famous French writer Guy de Maupassant once described Spring with the following words: "When the first beautiful days arrive, when the earth awakens and turns green [...], we have vague desires for undefined happiness, desires to run, to go by chance, to seek adventure, to drink spring. The winter having been very hard last year, this need to blossom was, in May, like an intoxication that invaded me, a burst of overflowing sap. "1
It is with the same enthusiasm that we present to you today our Re-Hydrating Soothing Face Mist. An ode to Auvergne nature, between the desire to drink Spring, the Volcanoes' Spring Water and the rising sap of our dear shimmering Birches.
There are facial care products that could be considered too humble, even superfluous. Our Mist is the perfect combination of all of Saeve's values, and it's far from being without effect. In this bottle are two jewels of nature, simple in appearance, but so powerful in their essence.
Fresh organic Birch Sap is one of the key ingredients in our products. No facial care product fails to call upon the strength of the sap and all its power, for our greatest well-being. Source Water from Auvergne volcanoes is the icing on the cake; the Earth element that finally completes our panel of beneficial ingredients.
Two nourishing liquids mixed in a bottle to create the purest and richest of dews proposed for the beauty of the skin.
Today, it is with great pride that we present our Re-Hydrating Soothing Facial Mist.
A face mist with the best intentions
We no longer need to introduce you to Saeve's star ingredient: fresh organic Birch Sap. It is the spearhead of the brand. All our good intentions started from there. Pauline Bony, the brand's founder, was the first to develop cosmetic products based on this magical ingredient that she has used since childhood.
It is her family heritage that she shares with us. As a child, she witnessed the beauty and well-being of the women of her family, who all used Birch Sap to help with various health problems. It is a concentrate of active and bioavailable nutrients of incredible purity, which heals joint pain, and brings finesse and whiteness to the skin, strength and vitality.
For Pauline, there was no better signature to imagine a complete range of care products based on her deep identity and values. Saeve is above all a love story for her roots and ancestors.
Pauline is originally from Auvergne. This land of France has a thousand beauties and treasures that rest in a natural setting preserved from pollution and far from the tumult of cities. Auvergne is a volcanic land rich in minerals and trace elements. More than a hundred springs irrigate this land. It was therefore obvious to fill our Mist with the waters of the Montpensier Spring.
Why is Saeve's Re-Hydrating Soothing Mist so interesting?
We can already highlight the large quantity of minerals and trace elements available in our facial mist. In particular, it contains Zinc, which is known to support the proper functioning of the immune system, but also for its antiseptic and antibacterial action on the skin.
Our Mist has a remarkable effectiveness on the problems related to acne, in particular with the port of the mask. Pimples rage under this occlusive mask that also heats up dry and irritable skin.
Its magnesium content calms skin inflammation and provides immediate relief for the skin. Even the most sensitive skin can use the beneficial micro-droplets of our Mist.
How to use Saeve Re-Hydrating Soothing Mist?
It can be used at any time of the day. It immediately soothes the discomfort of dry or dehydrated skin.
It can be applied over makeup for a new, plumped-up skin effect. There's no need to dab it on to absorb it, so there's no risk of ruining your makeup.
It reduces the dryness caused by hard water on the skin. Do not hesitate to spray your face after the shower. In the same way, it can accompany the men to calm the skin after the fire of shaving.
Korean women, skin care specialists in Asia, will tell you: water is a conductor of active ingredients. In fact, the Seven Skin Method was invented there. This consists of spraying a tonic water on the face 7 times before applying the skin care routine in order to improve its efficiency.
In any case, they recommend applying a spray of water on the face before using a serum with hyaluronic acid. This molecule captures water to maintain the density of the facial skin. Thus, our Mist can perfectly allow to support the effectiveness of serums, like our Botanical Serum Hydrating 24h Soothing for dehydrated skin or our Botanical Serum Anti-Aging Firming for advanced-age skin, just to name a few.
As you can see, our Re-Hydrating Soothing Mist is much more than just a refreshing spray. It's an ally of choice for skin beauty and general well-being.
It is an undeniable fact that we are all, men and women alike, exposed to the risk of developing brown spots on the face during our lifetime.
We don't really think about it when we are young, and our complexion is not marked. We expose ourselves to the sun without protecting ourselves, we invest all our efforts to come back from vacation with a tanned body, we expose ourselves to UV rays while we have small pimples thinking that this will help them disappear... And then one day, from the age of 35 onwards on average, we see brown spots appear. For men, they tend to be deposited on the edges of the face. For women, they are more disparate and can even cover the entire face, especially during pregnancy.
Depending on the severity of the situation, some manage to live with it. For others, the spots are so present that going out without makeup is out of the question, even in summer.
But what are brown spots? Why and how do they disturb the harmony of our complexion? Can we really remedy this problem?
In this post, we explain how to prevent brown spots and how to act in two steps to regain a beautiful, luminous and harmonious complexion.
What are brown spots?
Brown spots are the result of an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its natural color. It is the combination of amino acids, notably L-dopa and tyrosine. Tyrosine is also involved in the functioning of our thyroid gland.
With normal or moderate exposure to the sun, the melanocyte, the cell that produces melanin, will activate to allow this pigment to protect our skin from free radicals and preserve our cellular DNA. This biological phenomenon is called melanogenesis, specifically orchestrated by an activating enzyme: tyrosinase. When necessary, tyrosinase activates the tyrosine present in melanosomes and transforms it into melanin.
But then, why does this process become deleterious sometimes? There are two situations in which melanogenesis gets out of control. The first concerns pigment overproduction. The second is a dysfunction of the melanocyte.
• Sun exposure
This is typically the time when everything can lead to brown spots. Exposure to the sun must be done gradually. You must also apply creams that will help shield the sun's rays and its oxidative stress. If this is not the case, the skin will do its job and will cause an overproduction of pigments that can stain the skin of our face.
Sometimes people think that the sun can reduce the appearance of acne. However, this illusion only exists for the duration of a summer and the budding starts again in September. But there's worse. When you have pimples, you may tend to break them out, which creates micro-lesions that are conducive to the generation of brown spots. Let's insist on the use of anti-acne products that are not adapted or too abrasive. The skin's vulnerability is even greater and so is the risk of marks. If you have some blemishes, treat them with gentle products like those of our Pur Paradisi purifying and anti-blemish range.
• Hormonal treatments
The causal link between hormonal or contraceptive treatments and brown spots on the face has been proved. Hormones have a great influence on the skin's harmony. Women notice this particularly when they are pregnant, with the appearance of melasma or pregnancy mask, which blurs the complexion. Estrogens and progesterone’s will modify the nature of the melanocyte by activating melanin. If you are concerned, be extremely careful about your exposure to the sun. Consult your gynecologist or midwife to discuss this.
• Medication treatments
Some treatments, especially chemotherapy, will affect the functioning of the cell and create greater photosensitivity. Do not stop your treatments, but be more vigilant during periods of sun exposure, and moisturize and nourish your skin as much as possible.
Fighting the appearance of brown spots during the day
No matter how many spots your face has right now, there are two ways to fight them. During the day or at night, care intentions for the spots on the face are not the same.
During the day, it is important to avoid feeding the problem. We fight against the existing spots, and we do everything possible to reject the external causes that could create others.
• The first shield: the Perfect Pisum Whitening Anti-Spot Botanical Serum
This serum is a real cellular protector against oxidative stress, the effects of aging and reactions specific to photosensitivity.
It contains the following active ingredients:
- Our Immunox® patent: The flagship active ingredient of our Saeve products, our complex, composed of fresh organic Birch Sap and organic Chaga, stops more than 90% of the generation of free radicals and protects our cellular DNA to more than 70%.
- Antioxidants capable of limiting the action of tyrosinase and the production of melanin: titrated Pea extracts.
- Encapsulated Oxyresveratrol of White Mulberry also modulates the action of tyrosinase.
- Super-powerful Vitamin C, antioxidant and protective, with the virtues anti-stain and of cellular regeneration.
• Second shield: the Detox Officinale Multi-Defense Detoxifying Cream SPF30
With this cream, the idea is to deploy the means of anti-free radical defense in particular by protecting the skin from UV rays and pollution.
This effective cream contains the following ingredients:
- Unsurprisingly, we put a good dose of our Immunox® patent in it.
- The titrated extracts of Dandelion are our best friends. They allow to clean up our little cells in contact with external toxins.
- The encapsulated Apple Phloretin actively fights against free radicals through its antioxidant action.
Work in depth on brown spots at night
While during the day, we protect, at night, we treat brown spots in depth and boost cell renewal to make way to a new skin.
To do this, we suggest another beneficial elixir, our Perfect Pisum Whitening Micropeel Botanical Night Serum. Its application will allow a soft micro-exfoliation, without aggressive reaction on the skin, in order to optimize the regeneration of the latter. Brightening and light return in force on the complexion.
This wonderful serum contains:
- The ultra-antioxidant Immunox® patent to help you in the process of cellular regeneration, thanks to the richness of natural nutrients of fresh organic Birch sap.
- Fruit acids (AHA) to activate a gentle micro-peeling.
- Our radiance enhancers, titrated Pea extracts.
- Nourishing encapsulated Yeast extracts to promote optimal tissue renewal. If the arrival of brown spots on the face is unavoidable, it is no less certain that we have beautiful natural solutions to help you. We invite you to read the testimonials of women who have seen their complexion brighten up thanks to our products one fine morning.

You may be on the verge of going to a plastic surgeon for injections or a blepharoplasty. You're starting to lose your sense of self, and the mere sight of your face in the mirror makes you look glum.
It's not so much getting older that's difficult; it's the way things goes, and you know it. It's more the way it manifests itself that is painful. And then, in your head, you are still young!
How can you fight your wrinkles without assaulting or traumatizing your skin?
The anti-wrinkle solution lies in the synergy between these two trees to serve your facial skin, fight against its aging and work directly on its structure and collagen production.
this new post, we explain all about the richness of the Maritime Pine and give you some anti-wrinkle tips.
Who said that getting older means fading? Certainly not us! We love to see you looking beautiful and fulfilled throughout your life.
1 – The fatal anti-wrinkle weapon, Maritime Pine extract
The extract of Maritime Pine or Landes Pine extract is more often known under the name of Pycnogenol.
The virtues of the Maritime Pine were discovered during Jacques Cartier's explorations of the Americas in the 16th century. As he noted everything, he reported that infusions of maritime pine bark had saved his crews from scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C.
Since then, the Maritime Pine has been the subject of much scientific research, and it has been found that its extract contains an incredible mixture of antioxidants.
By ingestion, it can:
• Help the cardiovascular system by supporting the proper functioning of the heart
• Alleviate articulation discomfort and help the osteo-articular system function properly thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties
• Contribute to the ocular well-being thanks to its carotenoid content
And for the skin, it also does wonders:
• It participates in the production of nitric oxide, which promotes microcirculation
• It acts on collagen and elastin degradation factors to preserve these precious materials
• It supports the production of natural collagen
• It takes part in the fight against free radicals and is extremely helpful in case of sunburn
But externally, you may ask, is it as effective?
The answer is yes! The flavonoids present in the extract of Maritime Pine will provide the skin with complete protection, particularly against facial wrinkles and skin aging. Victory is ours!
2 – Intense hydration for thinner skin
• Beware of sugars
The sugars in the food you eat will attach to the proteins and change the molecular structure of the food by breaking down the proteins. Collagen being a protein, we can imagine that it is the same for your skin.
• Exit pollutants : tobacco, alcohol, sun
• Regular facial massage, the ultimate boost
These methods allowed us to understand the importance of soliciting the face by gentle but deep touches on specific points. They help to unclog facial tissues, activate elimination and drainage, and boost microcirculation. They also have an anti-wrinkle function: facial muscle tension will tend to encourage the creation of wrinkles. Even if you can never get a deep massage like a professional, you can take the time to smooth out your face every day.
3 – Saeve and its Lift Pinaster line
If we told you about this marvelous Maritime Pine extract, it's mainly because we had the idea of combining it with our Immunox® patent in four of our products.
Let's do it again because it's been a long time since we've done an update on it.
Immunox® is our signature complex:
• Fresh organic Birch sap, a real bath of youth thanks to its detoxifying and regenerating action
• Organic Chaga, also called "mushroom of immortality", whose action of cellular protection has been tested many times in our laboratory
Our synergy has benefited from more than 115 tests and scientific studies. They have demonstrated the activity of the Immunox® patent on the three stages of the skin's life:
• On its past, the Immunox® complex allows to work on the restoration of the mitochondrial DNA damaged during the day. A stable mitochondrial DNA means a cell in good shape. Protection and repair go together.
• On its present, the Immunox® patent acts against oxidative stress and enemy free radicals
• On its future, the organic Birch sap and the organic Chaga modulate the immune response of the skin to accompany it in its next fights
In Lift Pinaster, we've added Maritime Pine extract as well. Can you imagine? Cellular restoration, oxidative lull, collagen and elastin protection. Have we found the anti-aging solution that is as gentle as it is strong?
Lift Pinaster, its four products to help you:
During the application, you already have the sensation that this cream fills in wrinkles and densifies the skin for a smoother look thanks to its silky texture. Rich in broccoli flavonoids and firming tripeptides, this velvety, warm-smelling cream acts directly on the skin's appearance, improving its elasticity and making it firmer. It acts in depth to stop the marks of time.
Have you ever heard your skin thank you? With our Redensifying Night Cream, it can. This cream with its ultra smooth texture works during sleep when cell renewal is most stimulated. It is composed of numerous active ingredients such as encapsulated flavonoids for an in-depth action against skin aging, apricot kernel oil for a healthy glow and effective nourishment with firm skin at the end. Combined with the Immunox patent, the skin feels regenerated, smoother, firmer and its elasticity is reinforced! And above all, it glows from the very first morning.
The botanical serum from the Lift Pinaster range is the care that acts underwater to reach the deepest layers of the epidermis, where wrinkles are created. Over-concentrated in organic Birch sap, organic Chaga and Pine polyphenols, and plant hyaluronic acid, this serum redensifies and improves the skin's structure to help restore volume. The complexion is brighter and the depth of wrinkles is reduced, as if filled in. In other words, this rejuvenating treatment is complete. Boosting collagen formation, stopping free radicals and deeply moisturizing, it's all about bouncing back and firming cheeks.
One of our favorites among all our facials, the Eye and Lip Contour has a refreshing metal applicator. This 3-in-1 anti-wrinkle, anti-puffiness and anti-dark circle treatment applies just the right amount of product with a relaxing fresh-up effect. It boosts circulation and dark circles. Say goodbye to dark circles and hello to doe eyes! This treatment tightens the eyelid, firms the skin and smoothes crow's feet wrinkles! It also smoothes out fine dehydration lines around the lips, so don't forget about them.
Let the pink rise to your cheeks, thanks to us! And then, in the shade of the maritime pines, you feel so good....

It has been discussed for several years in the field of anti-aging cosmetics. Hyaluronic acid is essential to any face cream that wants to fight against cellular aging.
Hyaluronic acid is an essential molecule for our body. We need it for much more than just the aesthetic side of our face.
After reading this article, you will know what place it should have in your daily facial care routine.
Hyaluronic acid is THE miracle molecule that cannot be ignored. It allows the skin to firm up, plump up, keep its suppleness, and fight against the effects of time. We can say that it acts directly on your self-confidence.
Which woman has never felt the anxiety of seeing her skin change, marked by age? Sagging of the oval of the face, dark circles more marked... Sometimes, we have the feeling that things are going too fast. This is a normal process, but it is possible, and it is up to us to slow it down, especially the aging process thanks to hyaluronic acid, to feel good about ourselves and our bodies.
Zoom on this molecule which preserve the youth of your skin.
What is hyaluronic acid and what is it used for?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural lubricant whose role is to hydrate and promote the flexibility and mobility of certain tissues. It is found at the joints of the articulations where it densifies the synovial liquid nourishing the cartilage. There is also some in the vitreous humor of our eyes: it is what gives a globular aspect to the eye and ensures its normal function. Hyaluronic acid is a constituent of the extracellular fluid that surrounds the brain cells; that's how important it is for us.
When we talk about hyaluronic acid, most people think of cosmetic surgery and ultimately unsightly puffy faces. However, we need it for much more important reasons than aesthetics.
If you suffer from joint discomfort in your knees, a rheumatologist may advise you to take a course of hyaluronic acid among other supplements or recommend injections to help you. On another note, if you suffer from dry eyes due to a lack of tears, taking hyaluronic acid on a continuous basis can greatly improve things.
What about the skin on our face? Hyaluronic acid has an important role in the integrity of the skin. In our articles dedicated to anti-aging, we've talked to you several times about the mesh of collagen and elastin fibers, which maintain the shape of our face. And to keep it looking fresh and rested, we need to maintain our face's collagen production.
But what about the space between its fine fibers? Collagen is filled with a nourishing and supportive extracellular fluid made from hyaluronic acid. It allows it to capture water from the tissues to create a kind of jelly. The more hyaluronic acid we have, the more important the maintenance of the skin is.
It is therefore easy to understand how essential it is. The only problem is that with time, the presence of natural hyaluronic acid in our body becomes scarce. It disappears by itself, but also because of certain behaviors. The skin of the face then loses its firmness, the skin slowly sags, and wrinkles set in.
What can you do to maintain your natural hyaluronic acid production on a daily basis?
It goes without saying that if hyaluronic acid is a water captor, it is on the condition that it can find some. It is therefore imperative that you ensure that you have a sufficient supply of water every day. This will be beneficial for all your physiological tissues and especially for your skin.
To maintain its presence, you must also avoid exposing yourself to the sun too much. In fact, it is our attitude towards the sun that poses the problem: no protection, too many hours of exposure at the wrong times, little hydration... This is enough to cause a significant loss of water and generate premature aging of everything that makes up our skin, to leave room for wrinkles, which are not welcome.
About food, everything with a gelatinous texture contains hyaluronic acid. We could advise you to make bone broth, but it is not the easiest or most appetizing thing to do. On the other hand, some foods contain molecules that promote the maintenance of hyaluronic acid such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, soy products or fruits and vegetables.
To sump up, it is wiser to take direct hyaluronic acid cures, in addition to your facial care routine.
Hyaluronic acid in the spotlight at Saeve
The easiest way to stop the loss of hyaluronic acid is through daily cosmetic application. The very fact of giving it to our skin helps maintain its natural production in our body. Hyaluronic acid, when applied to the face, will immediately smooth, refine and relax the features. It will deeply hydrate the skin and soak up the water you give it.
You can also use our brand-new Re-Hydrating Soothing Mist enriched with fresh organic Birch sap and Auvergne volcano spring water to soothe tightness, moisturize and tone the skin.
At Saeve, our serums are among the most concentrated in hyaluronic acid on the market. Depending on the product, we can offer you hyaluronic acid-based facial care products with different molecular structures.
For example, in our Hydra Malva intense hydration range, we have added pure hyaluronic acid of plant origin in order to bring a lot of moisture to the skin. The molecules are larger, which ensures that they remain on the surface and therefore have an immediate plumping and smoothing effect.
The 24h Soothing Moisturizing Botanical Serum is the product of the range that contains the more hyaluronic acid. It creates an important hydric protection barrier. It is this serum that should be applied to wrinkles and fine lines to prevent dehydration from affecting the deeper layers of the skin.
In our Lift Pinaster Anti-Aging and Firming line, we use a fragmented hyaluronic acid with a finer molecular weight. It is therefore better able to penetrate the epidermis to work in depth on the effects of time.
The important thing is to act on the quantity and regeneration of our natural hyaluronic acid, and the Firming Anti Aging Botanical Serum Lift Pinaster is an incredible source of it. It also contains other molecules such as titrated pine extract that supports collagen production.
