Moisturizing your skin on a regular basis will help keep it soft and supple while strengthening its resistance to environmental aggressors. Plus, it improves its ability to absorb body care products, allowing them to work at their best.
How to choose the right moisturizer?
Knowing your skin type is the first step. Then you can determine which moisturizer is best for your skin. Another factor to consider is that regardless of your skin type, it is recommended that you use products made from natural ingredients. Chemicals alter and damage the epidermis.
That would be the last straw, wouldn't it? When we pamper our skin, we like to do it good with confidence and peace of mind.
This type of skin is characterized by a difficulty of the skin to maintain a sufficient hydration. A lack of water and oil will progressively damage your skin, making it more fragile. To determine if your skin is dry, here are some common symptoms:
- Sensations of discomfort, tightness, increased sensitivity
- Redness more or less inflammatory
- Skin that peels, itches, irritations, cracks, chapping or presence of eczema
- Wrinkles and fine lines that appear early
Obviously, the more symptoms you have, the closer you get to very dry skin.
To relieve the irritation, inflammation and itching caused by dry skin, it is essential to provide moisture and nutrients daily. Chanv Anti-Aging Serum is a great option to nourish your skin with its richness in carotenoids, vitamins and copper. These nutrients improve hydration, skin texture and strengthen the skin barrier.
By combining the serum with Chanv Night Cream, you continue to provide your skin with deep hydration thanks to the omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. In addition, these products have the advantage of soothing the skin and do not cause irritation. Chanv Night Cream is also enriched with Italian helichrysum and grape seed oil, which promote the regeneration of dry skin, allowing it to better protect itself against external aggressions.
This type of skin reacts easily to external aggressions, which causes multiple discomforts that can often be painful. To help you determine if your skin is said to be sensitive, here are some common symptoms:
- Frequent reactions to cosmetic products: redness, itching, irritation, tightness
- Burning or tingling sensation after applying certain products
- Increased predisposition to skin allergies or intolerances
- Sensitivity to temperature changes (skin peeling especially in winter)
Sensitive skin requires very gentle, natural and balanced skin care to preserve the skin's moisture barrier. Chanv Day Cream is very light. It nourishes and moisturizes the epidermis for a long time to help balance and protect it. All of these benefits help to reduce skin sensitivity. To complement this treatment, try the ultra-smooth Chanv Night Cream that nourishes, moisturizes and regenerates the skin overnight.
If you have very reactive and sensitive skin and react to most products, Chanv Stretch Oil is the gentlest product in the Chanv line and will suit your needs. This oil is made from only three ingredients: Chanv oil™, grapeseed oil and a single essential oil, lavender angustifolia. It is considered the gentlest and most suitable species of lavender for skin care.
Oily and acne-prone skin
Maintaining matte-looking skin without pimples, blackheads or other acne-related problems can be difficult when you have oily skin. Keeping your makeup looking fresh and long-lasting is also complicated. Here are four symptoms that can help you identify this skin type:
- Shiny, oily appearance of the epidermis
- Excess sebum, need to clean or mattify the skin
- Pimples, redness and blackheads
- Often congested skin, feeling of heaviness
Before using an oil or a cream, know that it is essential to integrate an exfoliating care into your routine. Exfoliating removes dead skin, impurities and excess sebum. This treatment prepares your skin to receive subsequent treatments and helps it breathe and regenerate. Chanv Sugar Facial and Body Scrub is extremely gentle and moisturizing.
Chanv Intensive Care Oil is perfect for oily skin because of its composition of tea tree, palmarosa and lavender essential oils. Each plays a major role in refining pores, regulating sebum and reducing imperfections such as redness, scars and acne. When combined with the lightweight and quickly absorbed Chanv Oil™, these ingredients instantly hydrate the skin without clogging pores. When used daily, Intensive Care Oil promotes skin regeneration and protection for an even, matte complexion.
Very dry skin prone to eczema or psoriasis
Extremely dry skin is more likely to develop eczema or psoriasis. This is due to the increased fragility of the skin barrier caused by dryness. The skin becomes more vulnerable to allergens, irritants and environmental factors that cause inflammatory reactions. Some common symptoms can help you see this more clearly:
- Tightness and itching
- Dull, cracked appearance of the skin
- Redness and peeling skin
- Roughness and thickening of the skin
- Blistering or blistering
- Tightness and burning sensations
- Increased sensitivity to skin care products
Very dry skin with chapping and cracking absolutely needs deep nourishing and moisturizing care. Chanv Anti-Itch Ointment is the ideal product, as it contains fat-rich ingredients such as Chanv oil™ , grapeseed oil and beeswax. This ointment also contains specific essential oils that soothe and relieve, such as lavender angustifolia, which is particularly gentle and suitable for extremely dry skin.
Once applied to the skin, the ointment forms a protective film that lasts for hours to help your skin regenerate and regain comfort.
Eczema and Psoriasis: the ideal skin care routine
If you have very dry skin and are prone to eczema or psoriasis, using Chanv Eczema Cream and Ointment in your daily routine is the optimal approach.
This cream contains colloidal oatmeal (2%) which provides fast relief from itching and reduces the damage caused by scratching. In addition to relieving the symptoms of eczema, this unique cream nourishes, moisturizes and regenerates the skin to better strengthen its moisture barrier and prevent flaking. The end result is supple, healthy-looking skin.
Here is a great routine for you:
- Eczema Cream in the morning
- Anti-Itch Ointment at noon
- Eczema Cream in the afternoon
- Anti-Itch Ointment at night
Always use Chanv Eczema Cream on clean skin, having taken care to wash your hands beforehand.
Combination skin type
Finding the right product for combination skin can be difficult, as it encompasses several skin types. Maintaining a matte T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) as well as good hydration can be complex. Here are four symptoms that characterize the combination type skin:
- Shiny-looking T-zone (forehead, nose and chin)
- Dry feeling on the cheeks and temples
- Pimples, blackheads and other acne-related problems on the T-zone
- High sebum production
With its particular characteristics, it is important not to increase sebum production and moisturize combination skin without weighing it down. The Anti- ge Chanv Serum is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins. Quickly absorbed by the skin, it nourishes and moisturizes without clogging the pores. To complete the moisturizing process and maintain a healthy, matte appearance, apply a small amount of Chanv Day Cream.
Every skin is unique and varies depending on factors such as age, hormones, sun exposure, diet, stress, lifestyle and skin care habits. By choosing natural body care products, you can be sure that your skin is being cared for in a respectful and appropriate manner, no matter what its experience.
