Sunscreen and hydration: your summer skincare essentials

Ah summer! The season of happy hours on patios, swimming at the lake and Sundays spent playing outside with the family. To enjoy all of these beautiful moments without creating collateral damage to our skin, we’ve got to protect it more than ever. How? By adopting a summer skin care routine that addresses both sun protection and hydration.

1. Sun protection mode

Did you know, without adequate protection, UV rays are responsible for 80% of the premature signs of aging? In other words, with the right sunscreen, you can not only prevent skin cancer, you can also slow the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation spots and other effects of the passing of time.

SPF 30 Lotion: the mineral sunscreen to add to your beauty routine

First and foremost, let’s address the main concern often associated with the words "mineral sunscreen". While it’s true that many mineral sun care products on the market leave an unsightly whitish film on the skin, Jouviance SPF 30 Lotion does not. You can therefore apply and enjoy its broad-spectrum protection (against UVA, UVB and free radicals) without looking like a ghost while you lounge at the pool. Moreover, like all Jouviance products, it is free of harmful ingredients like oxybenzone, parabens and nanoparticles.

Much more than just a sun care product

Sun protection is great, but if it can also treat our skin, it's even better! Jouviance SPF 30 Lotion contains a well-thought-out cocktail of three oils that bring their share of skin benefits. Grape seed oil, which, in addition to offering an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing action, neutralizes free radicals and restores collagen production. Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, coconut and argan oils help to rebalance the lipid barrier to deliver well-hydrated skin!

6 reasons to choose a mineral filter over a chemical filter

  • There’s no waiting time with a mineral filter. Once applied, you’re immediately protected!
  • Acting like a mirror, it stays on the surface of the skin and reflects rays for safer protection.
  • Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide block UV rays and prevent the production of free radicals.
  • Since it does not penetrate the skin, the mineral filter does not interfere with the functioning of skin cells and the hormonal system.
  • SPF 30 Lotion is suitable for all skin types, even those who are allergic or hypersensitive to the sun.
  • Did you know that oxybenzone and octinoxate, two ingredients found in chemical sunscreens will soon be banned in some parts of the world? The reason: they have been proven to damage coral and consequently, the overall health of our oceans.

2. Mission hydration

Since summer conditions are less extreme than those present in winter, it is often mistakenly believed that our skin does not need as much hydration once summer arrives. Surprise: this is completely false! First, there is the hot weather and UV rays that require us to be more vigilant about our hydration in general. Second, changes in temperature (heat waves and air conditioning) and delicious iced coffee and alcohol (it's patio season after all) multiply the chances of finding ourselves with thirsty, dull skin.

Putting hydration back at the heart of our beauty routine is a priority

To hydrate our skin in summer without overloading it with products that are too heavy or rich, the Hydractiv range from Jouviance is our best ally.

Step 1: Cleanse. Depending on your preferred texture, choose from the 3 available formulas: milkgel or micelle solution. No matter which one you pick, you’ll remove makeup, cleanse, tone, soothe and moisturize your skin in a single step!

Step 2: Moisturize. Used separately or simultaneously for maximum results, Serum+ and Gel-Creme rehydrate deeply from the epidermis to the dermis. Dehydration wrinkles are filled and the complexion's radiance is restored. In addition, when applied, they provide a soothing effect and a boost of freshness, which are always appreciated in hot weather!

Step 3: In the morning, finish by applying our SPF 30 Lotion! Don’t forget to reapply every two hours when exposed to the sun.

On that note, we wish you and your healthy skin a great summer!
