Moisturising: the key to keep a beautiful skin

Moisturising is essential to skin’s well-being, as it preserves its mechanical properties. Skin’s smooth appearance depends on the water content of its upper layer. The human body is approximately 60-65% water and evaporation regulates water balance, influenced by humidity, the amount of water in the cells and the hydrolipid film. Sagging skin, a major sign of ageing, is accentuated by dehydration. Maintaining optimal moisture in the skin is therefore crucial to preserving skin’s firmness.

All of our cellular skincare formulas contain our signature ingredient, CytoPep™ Cellular Extracts , which maintain skin hydration at an optimal level. For an intensive moisturising programme: the Ultra Intensive Elasto-Collagen-XT hydra-firming* serum.

Skin ageing

Skin changes visibly with age, showing such signs as reduced thickness, sagging, diminished radiance, decreased moisture due to reduced hyaluronic acid, dark spots and volume loss. Male skin usually shows signs of ageing later, but once the process begins, more pronounced wrinkles appear. Wrinkles are caused by two mechanisms: biological (cellular ageing, oxidation or glycation of collagen and elastin fibres) and mechanical (continuous contraction of facial muscles: 30,000 times a day). Starting around the age of 30, wrinkles become permanent on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the nose. Thinning lips also leads to the appearance of wrinkles.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin reacts strongly to climatic factors: wind, sun, cold or dry air, temperature variations, pollution, etc. Sensitive skin is defined by the characteristic sensory symptoms it manifests, such as sensations of tingling, prickling, itching, excessive warmth or burning, naturally thin or very dry skin (hereditary), rather fair complexion, redness and irritation, reaction to temperature changes and rosaceous patches. Not to be confused with sensitised skin: overexposed to the sun’s rays, oily after an aggressive skin treatment, having undergone a dermatological procedure, sensitive due to stress or taking certain medications.

Excess sebum is directly tied to hormone production. It can cause acne, blackheads or seborrheic dermatitis. The ideal product should have the following targeted actions:

  • Gently remove makeup, dirt and oil (sebum) from the skin
  • Visibly regulate sebaceous secretions
  • Reduce shine
  • Tighten pores through astringent action
  • Reduce any skin redness

Diminish dark spots to harmonise skin’s appearance

The colour of the skin, the result of melanogenesis, is determined by melanin, which serves to protect skin from UV rays. Dark spots indicate a pigmentation system dysfunction, which is accentuated by age. Counteracting melanogenesis in advance is crucial to reducing pigment clusters on the skin, also called dark spots, sun spots or liver spots.

The skin around the eye is 4 to 5 times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face and therefore shows signs of ageing very early.

First wrinkles

Wrinkles form first on the forehead, along the nasolabial folds and around lips and eyes, where muscles contract many times each day. Crow’s feet, located at the outer corners of the eyes, are the first expression lines to appear.

Sagging eyelids

The skin tissue around the eyes suffers from poor collagen supply and therefore sags due to lack of support. Collagen rigidifies with age. The skin loses suppleness and density. Wrinkles deepen and eyelids sag.

Dark circles

The term ‘dark circles’ refers to the colouring of the skin beneath the eye, in tones ranging from yellow to black. The appearance of dark circles is often caused by slowed skin microcirculation as a result of ageing, fatigue or stress.


Undereye puffiness, sometimes called bags, is caused by an accumulation of water, fats or metabolic waste in the tissues. This phenomenon, the result of age and heredity, occurs most frequently at night.

The causes of undereye puffiness and dark circles

The following factors play a role in the development of undereye puffiness and/or dark circles:

  • Diminished or insufficient blood circulation
  • Heredity
  • Age and ageing
  • Ethnicity
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Poor dietary habits
  • Smoking and alcohol consumption
  • Hormonal disturbances
  • Sun exposure (especially for dark circles)
