Caring for your skin

“Nothing is deeper in man than his skin,” said the French poet and writer Paul Valéry. Our skin is so much more than a surface that separates our body from the outside world. It’s like an open book, a doorway into our soul. It tells of our happiness, our fears, our sufferings, and the passing years. When we listen to our skin, understand what it’s saying, and know how to take care of it, we have the keys to make it glow with health.

Take care of your skin the natural way

The skin is the body’s largest organ1. This protective barrier between our interior and the external world deserves daily care. More than just a question of appearance, healthy skin reflects our interior well-being. Every day, the skin faces several aggressors: pollution, UV rays, stress, and dietary imbalance. It sends out signals we shouldn´t ignore such as a dull complexion, overproduction of sebum, or imperfections. Fortunately, simple and regular care adapted to your skin type can enhance and protect your skin. Absolution can help you reveal its genuine radiance with natural, certified organic care. Below are our tips for caring for your skin, no matter what type you have. Follow a skincare routine to look after your body and take the first step to radiant skin.

Why take care of your skin?

Taking care of your skin is of course indulging in a beauty ritual, but above all else, it’s essential for your health and well-being. Radiant skin doesn´t just benefit your appearance. In a society where appearance plays a significant role, healthy and radiant skin can be a real confidence booster. Skin problems such as hormonal acne or psoriasis can have a negative impact on quality of life, even leading to isolation or depression.
In addition to social factors, the skin plays a key part in the functioning of the body. It’s the first line of defence against external aggressors as it acts as a protective barrier against microbes, bacteria, and UV rays. It also helps regulate body temperature. Unfortunately, this skin barrier can be damaged with age and daily aggressors. Establishing a suitable skincare routine is therefore essential to maintain your skin’s protective role.

Identifying your skin type to establish a tailored skincare routine

Understanding your skin type is key to developing a skincare routine that meets its exact needs. First of all, take our online analysis. You’ll learn more about your skin type in just a few clicks. The main skin types are:
• Dry skin : distinguished by insufficient sebum production. The skin’s protective film is therefore less effective against external aggressors. You may experience tightness or discomfort.
• On the contrary, oily skin produces too much sebum. This gives the skin a shiny appearance and can cause imperfections such as blackheads and acne.
• Combination skin has a combination of an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and drier cheeks. This skin type needs a tailored approach to balance it.
Each of these skin types can also be sensitive, show imperfections, or appear “tired.” Finally, mature skin also requires tailored care.

Cleanse and prepare your skin gently

Cleansing your face is the key to an effective beauty routine. Gentle treatment is essential to rid the skin of the impurities that build up throughout the day. Absolution offers a range of cleansers adapted to every skin type, whether oily, combination, dry, sensitive, or blemished.
Le Baume Céleste and La Crème Douce Démaquillante transform make-up removal into a gentle experience for thirsty skin.
Le Nettoyant Pureté on the other hand, is essential for combination to oily skins thanks to its soap-free formula. L’Eau Soir et Matin is a versatile toner – it purifies and tones all skin types gently, in a few seconds.
If you’re into zero waste, why not choose a solid soap? For combination and oily skin, Le Savon Noir purifies the face and body. Le Savon Blanc is perfect for taking care of sensitive skin.

Good to know: how often should you cleanse your skin?
Be aware of how often you cleanse: excessive cleansing can disrupt the skin’s protective hydrolipidic film. We recommend deep cleansing in the evening to effectively remove residue from the day without stressing the skin in the morning. If you also apply specific night treatments, gentle cleansing in the morning with a l’éponge Konjac may be necessary to prepare skin for a new day.

Exfoliate your skin gently

Regular exfoliation once or twice a week is recommended to take care of your skin. Exfoliating your skin helps rid it of dead cells and improves the absorption of moisturising treatments. Regular body exfoliation prevents ingrown hairs, enhances tanning, and enhances treatment effectiveness. Absolution has developed Le Gommage Corps Éclat, a gentle yet effective solution for all skin types. The bonus? Its nourishing and soothing properties based on natural ingredients like coconut oil and aloe vera.
Choose scrubs designed for the sensitivity of the face, such as La Crème Gommante for facial skin care. This combines physical and chemical exfoliation for a radiant complexion and smooth skin without irritation.

Deeply hydrate the epidermis with natural and organic products

The skin is made up of 70% water2. To keep the dermis supple, comfortable, and healthy, it’s essential to hydrate it regularly. This plays a key role in preserving the hydrolipidic film. This protective barrier composed of water and lipids ensures the skin’s balance, protects it from external aggressors, and prevents dehydration. What is the key product for good hydration? Moisturising cream of course!
Absolution skincare products are formulated with naturally moisturising active ingredients, such as vegetable oils. For daily care, La Crème Beau Jour, with sesame oil, borage oil, and hyaluronic acid, contains antioxidant-rich hydration and revitalising agents.
Very dehydrated skin will appreciate our best-selling, intense moisturiser, Le Sérum Anti-Soif, its natural active ingredients help your epidermis maintain its hydrolipidic balance for eight hours.
Use Le Lait Peau Douce after your shower to moisturise the body. Its natural geranium and neroli scent will give you an incredibly relaxing experience.

Protecting your skin against external aggressors

Firstly, taking care of your skin means protecting it from external aggressors. Pollution, dust, or ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun are major contributors to premature skin ageing, wrinkles, and fine lines. Sun protection is therefore crucial when you are outdoors. Choose a broad-spectrum sun cream with the correct sun protection factor (SPF).
Protecting your skin also means choosing quality products formulated with natural and organic ingredients and avoiding cosmetics overloaded with chemicals. Created with organic or wild plant extracts, minerals, and vitamins, Absolution skincare is free from any harmful ingredients. For instance, Addiction is a general beauty care oil made of a mix of almost 26 vegetable oils carefully selected for their benefits. You won’t find any petrochemical derivatives, irritating surfactants, phthalates, mineral oils, or other parabens in our products. Our goal is to offer your skin the essential nutrients it needs to protect your health and the environment.

Take care of your skin… from the inside

Effective skin care also means a healthy way of life. This may seem obvious, but it’s the number one way to radiant skin that’s full of vitality. Restorative sleep, which we sometimes neglect, helps the skin regularly regenerate. Diet also plays a crucial role. Excess sugar and animal fats can trigger skin problems like pimples, blackheads, and breakouts. On the other hand, a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids (found in fatty fish and nuts) promotes skin hydration. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water every day to eliminate toxins. Finally, don´t smoke as it changes the colour and texture of the skin.

Three points to remember:
• Choose natural products to care for your skin. Our treatments don’t contain harmful ingredients and are formulated with certified organic plant extracts, to care for your skin and the environment.
• Follow a skincare routine tailored to your skin type. Absolution offers products for oily, combination, dry, mature, sensitive, blemished and other skin types.
Your skin is unique, just like you.
• Restorative sleep, balanced nutrition, and regular hydration are essential to maintain the radiance and health of your skin.
