At each change of season, we adjust our beauty ritual. As fall arrives, it is important to pay special attention to your skin to see it glowing.

During the summer, our skin has been exposed to humidity, sun and heat, so when fall arrives:

  • the dead cells multiply and thus give the skin a dull appearance. This is called keratinization, the process by which the skin defends itself against UV rays by thickening. The top layer of the epidermis dries up and our skin begins to itch and dry out. Our corpuscles of touch tickle us and bring us back to order
  • with the cold, the sebum remains blocked, leaving room for more obstruction & blackheads. Welcome exfoliation.

We offer you to travel in a unique world dedicated to the experience of the senses thanks to 100% natural products (to the point where our treatments are edible) & above all, 100% active, pure, virgin, with intoxicating aromas that remind us a back to basics.

 

AUTUMN RITUAL

We focus on rich and nourishing skincare products to keep the skin moist and hydrate it deeply.

Here are the essential steps to start your transition to the colder weather:

 

1- Cleaning with beneficial vegetable oils

  • With gentle cleansing oils that soothe, replenish and soften the skin.
  • As for the face, cleaning is obviously an essential daily gesture before properly hydrating your skin.

 

For the body, it is a complete immersion in a benevolent oil that softens dead cells and unclogs the ostium to make way for new and luminous skin.

 

2 - Sublime purifying scrub

 

Essential step in order to eliminate dead cells, regenerate our skin and promote the penetration of our face / body serums. Energizing treatment based on citrus fruits and vanilla, sea salts, coconut sugar to find a soft and silky skin, inspired by ancient beauty and care recipes.

 

3 - Nourishing & anti-aging hydration

 

This is an absolutely essential step since we nourish and protect our skin. We put away our gels, emulsions and summer lotions to swap them for balms, ointments and rich oils.

A little tip in passing: in the morning, use an oil that penetrates quickly into the skin and in the evening, a richer balm.

Another interesting tip: apply our oil immediately after bathing or showering on damp skin to promote hydration.

 

NB.: Apply the oil to damp skin. If applied to dry skin, the skin acts as a barrier and prevents oil from penetrating. Whereas if the skin is wet, it recreates a surface emulsion and bio-affinity of the oil. All the active molecules penetrate the epidermis. And we avoid the unpleasant oily film side that remains on the skin.

AHAs: A Story of Apples and Grapes

Knows very beautiful days at the time when the vine and the apple trees are ready to offer their treasures.

Emblematic fruits of beauty, apples and grapes grow in quantity at the La Prairie Beauty Farm where, of course, they have the advantage of not being treated, thus offering all the promised qualities in their integrity!

 

Pulp that "plumps"

Apple and grape are rich in active ingredients that are valuable in cosmetics:

  • on the one hand, antioxidant polyphenols accelerate tissue regeneration,
  • on the other hand, the draining, remineralizing, moisturizing and plumping properties take care of the "detox",
  • then we find there a richness in vitamin C, of which we know the revitalizing effects

and a presence of alpha-hydroxy acids: AHAs.

Very popular in natural cosmetics, AHAs (Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids), commonly called fruit acids, are natural acids from sugars extracted from fruits or plants: glycolic acid comes from sugar cane, malic acid apple and grape, citric acid from orange and lemon ...

These acids work miracles on the complexion.

Often used as "peels", AHAs allow "new skin": they restore radiance to the complexion, smooth surface imperfections, reduce pigmentation problems and reduce the depth of wrinkles.

 

"New skin" assets

Fruit acids, thanks to their immediate healthy glow effect on the skin, will be perfect for dull and uneven complexions. By their exfoliating action, they help evacuate dead cells and activate cell renewal.

A real "radiance boost" to the complexion

Thanks to their unifying properties, AHAs will refine the skin texture and even out the complexion. They lighten the face, reduce hyperpigmentation spots, irregularities and scars.

A clarifying power

Recommended occasionally for oily skin and skin with imperfections, fruit acids will have a purifying action allowing the elimination of excess sebum on the surface of the skin.

Anti-aging action

While fruit acids promote cell renewal, they are also known to increase skin elasticity by stimulating collagen production.

Regular and prolonged application of AHA helps reduce fine lines, reduce the depth of wrinkles and fade age spots caused by the sun.

 

Thus, the Apple & Grape treatment from Maison Jacynthe uses a complex of natural fruit actives that revitalizes and sublimates the skin overnight.

Note: While AHAs are generally well tolerated, they should not be used pure on the skin. Some fragile skin will be reactive to fruit acids, so a sensitization test (on the forearm) must be done 48 hours before any use. In addition, used too frequently, they will refine the skin and make it more sensitive to the sun.

Also note that we do not use the aroma water in the sun. Apple treatment can be done in the morning as a radiance boost And in the evening with grapes as an anti-aging treatment. We do not do this treatment before spending a day outside But before to go to the office yes!

AHAs (Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids) are a group of chemical compounds that can be found in fruits, vegetables or other plants.

 

How do AHAs work on the skin?

AHAs act on the cohesion between the corneocytes present on the stratum corneum (the horny layer of the skin which is mainly composed of dead cells), reducing it.

Among the benefits of AHAs, we find:

  • Increased production of collagen in the dermis: firmness, hydration, skin regeneration
  • Deep exfoliation without causing inflammation
  • Visible reduction of fine lines
  • An action on acne acting on the sebaceous glands
  • A boost on the performance of other active ingredients, by improving their penetration on the skin
  • An action on pigment spots
  • A visible action on the dilated pores located on the wings of the nose

 

In the category of AHAs, we find the following acids:

  • Ascorbic acid: various fruits
  • Citric acid: lemons, oranges, apples
  • Glycolic acid: cane sugar, apples
  • Lactic acid: blueberries, apples
  • Mandelic acid: bitter almonds
  • Malic acid: apples, pears, maple sugar
  • Tartaric acid: grapes, maple sugar
