Gray mine, complexion at half mast, January often turns out to be ruthless with our skin. Between excess food during the holidays, fatigue, shorter days, our only obsession is to regain some glow or in other words: a healthy glow.
But what is glow
? Why are we so obsessed with it? And what are the steps to get a radiant complexion? Find out here.
is an Anglicism which means radiance. It is the radiance of healthy, well-hydrated skin that reflects light well.
WHY DO WE WANT GLOW ?
Young skin is naturally glowy
. Indeed, it naturally reflects light and gives us a healthy glow because it is generally well nourished and hydrated.
But over time, the skin loses its ability to retain water. In addition, cell renewal is slower, which means more dead cells on the surface of the skin, a longer-lasting complexion and therefore less light.
But whatever your age, your skin type, if you have spots, acne or wrinkles, you can all have glow
, if you acquire the right reflexes.
1. YOU WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN
The first secret to looking good: healthy skin.
What is healthy skin? It is a skin whose hydrolipidic film (made up of water and fat) is healthy.
Here's how to preserve it:
- CLEANSE YOUR SKIN WITH RESPECT
Poor cleaning, too harsh, with the wrong ingredients (not rinsed micellar water or Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulfates) weakens the hydrolipidic film.
Always choose gentle cleansers and avoid the use of disposable cotton pads which irritate the epidermis.
Go For Glow Cleansing Gel
does not contain drying foaming agents. It also allows, thanks to the prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics it contains, to maintain the skin balance. Use it with its reusable organic cotton wipe to preserve your skin.
We produce on average between 50 and 70 billion cells every day.
Dead cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin dull the complexion and prevent light from reflecting. A gentle, enzymatic and daily exfoliation is therefore the solution for fresh and luminous skin.
The Go For Glow Exfoliating Cleansing Gel exfoliates very gently without grit, thanks to its pomegranate enzymes.
Our beautiful skin tip: leave it on as an express mask every morning while brushing your teeth, to boost exfoliation and cell renewal.
MOISTURIZE AND NOURISH YOUR SKIN
To strengthen the hydrolipidic film, it is important to provide it with hydration and nutrition.
Hydration will be done thanks to aqueous active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid , vegetable glycerin or aloe vera. To fight against severe dehydration, hyaluronic acid is your best ally: it retains 1,000 times its weight in water.
Nutrition is oil intake. To retain water in the skin, it must also be nourished. And there, you have to think vegetable oil .
Go For Protection Moisturizing Care contains apricot vegetable oil and hyaluronic acid to nourish, hydrate the skin and help you look healthy every day.
2. FRUITS AND VEGETABLES YOU WILL CONSUME
We can never repeat it enough, it is very important to eat fruits and vegetables. For the antioxidants they therefore contain their anti-aging properties.
The fibers and sugars they contain will feed your good intestinal bacteria. They also stimulate your immune system and your digestive system: you will thus find a healthy body and healthy skin.
Eat them local and in season. This will be beneficial for the planet but also know that consuming local avoids fruits or vegetables picked too early (to support the trip).
These healthy products are therefore, especially if they are organic, richer in vitamins and minerals. They will have beneficial effects on your body and your skin: a healthy glow guaranteed!
Winter fruits and vegetables:
· Cauliflower and greens, broccoli.
· Leeks, pumpkins, carrots or endives and beets.
· Pears, apples, oranges and clementines.

is the ally of choice. Rich in prebiotics and probiotics and full of draining and detoxifying plants, it stimulates digestion and helps the liver to get rid of toxins generated by the ingestion of richer foods than usual.
