While flowers bloom, our cells reproduce faster, blood flows better into muscles, breathing becomes wider and skin becomes more elastic. It’s the right time to arouse skin beauty resorting to treatments


Since during the winter air is full of harmful particles that are deposited on the skin, attacking its natural protective barriers - the hydrolipidic film and the stratum corneum - with the arrival of spring we should let it oxygenate and breathe.

To this end, the body-scrub is an essential treatment (try the salt, rice, ginger and nutmeg body-scrub) since it removes dead cells and contributes to the formation of a layer of cells more compact and uniform.

Repeated constantly from here to the summer, it stimulates subcutaneous microcirculation, also favoring the drainage of fluids that encumber the silhouette.

Face detoxification starts instead from a good cleansing, carried out by a skilled beautician and followed by the use of cosmetics that allow the skin to breathe not occluding the pores with synthetic substances.

It is therefore important to read the label on your habitual cosmetics to check that they do not contain Paraffinum Liquidum (Vaseline oil), Petrolatum (petroleum jelly) or silicones that, often used instead of plant softening, penetrate into the skin and, instead of nourishing it, dehydrate it although leaving it smooth and silky to the touch.

In the end, since oxygenate and hydrate are the two watchwords of beauty in the spring, here is a little trick with great results: every morning, when you wake up, after cleansing, spray on your face some flower water or a gentle tonic, then apply a knob of moisturizer and, just after breakfast, use your cream treatment.



After hydration, the most important element for skin in the spring is ... sleep!

Infact, according to a study sponsored by Estee Lauder at the University Hospital Case Medical Center in Cleveland, those who sleep less have a skin more dehydrated and prone to premature aging than that of those who rest properly.

The epithelial cells mainly multiply at night - especially between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. - since GH, the growth hormone, is released during this time band.

And since this substance has its peak of production at 20 years of age but then decreases with aging, we should rest properly, especially after 40 years of age.

"If we respond to the lazy biorhythm of spring by sleeping enough, we allow the pituitary gland to produce more melatonin, a bio-regulator that has a strong rejuvenating effect” says Dr. Walter Pierparoli, author of some of the most important scientific studies on the relationship between melatonin and aging. "With the right amount of sleep the epidermis 'reflourishes' because the pineal gland can reload and correctly set our biological clock, adapting it to new seasonal rhythms ".



Considering the skin biorhythms, therefore, the beauty spring recipe is a good sleep combined with the right products, namely creams and regenerating serums to be applied one hour before going to bed.

At night hours, in fact, the skin barrier becomes more permeable and receptive to the absorption of any substance.

You’d better avoid products with too heavy and rich textures, since they can slow the drainage of cutaneous fluids, accentuating another problem typical of the change of season: swelling and heavy eyelids. Green light instead to serums rich in substances that follow the pace of skin reconstruction and stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

And not just for the face: even the body skin recovers better during the night rest, therefore, after the evening bath or shower it is time to apply firming, slimming and anti-cellulite products, since it is just at night that subcutaneous fats will "melt" better.
