Dear reader,

Now this fantastic summer is slowly over. Now it is time to take again some more time for yourself and your skin. Treat yourself with our unique beauty masks: while relaxing, you cosset your skin and your soul.

Again, I have taken the request of a customer as the basis of my  new topic: Pregnancy & Care.

Our biggest organ – the skin – can get out of balance during pregnancy. Some women suddenly get a smooth, rosy peach skin during pregnancy, while for others, the pregnancy hormones become a beauty problem.

Sometimes dry skin becomes greasy or blackheads or pimples form as in puberty. This is due to so-called androgens, which the body now increasingly forms. These male sex hormones not only boost sebum production, they also stimulate the growth of horny cells that attach to the opening of the sebaceous glands. An unsightly combination that even leads to blemishes in women, for whom pimples previously was a foreign word.  

Care products adapt to the complexion 

Of course, when the skin changes, it also needs another care. When the skin suddenly produces more sebum, switching from a fat to a moisturizing supplement can improve your skin condition.The motto is: less is more! If in doubt, ask your doctor, a dermatologist or a cosmetician, which cleaning and care products are best suited for your skin good now. Please do not press pimples – you risk inflammation. Even stronger or large-scale skin impurities better do not self-medicate. Home remedies such as toothpaste or tea tree oil are also not safe. They dry out the skin or can even trigger allergies. 

Maintain your skin balance thoroughly and gently 

What can you do? Drink a lot, pay attention to a healthy diet and lifestyle as well as regularly care for your face and décolleté. Important is a thorough but gentle cleansing to remove excess sebum and make-up remainders. In addition, in the morning and in the evening wash face and décolleté with a pH-neutral cleansing product. Dab the skin dry and clarify with tonic.Finally, pamper your face and décolleté with some nourishing cream, which, like all your skin care products, should be adapted to the current skin condition. But if the skin is now greasier than it used to be, it probably only needs some moisturizing in the morning. Note: in case of skin imperfections always change the washcloth and towel often. 

A few tips 

At best, pregnant women now abstain from fat, oil and alcohol-based care products. Those, who are sensitive to fragrances, now find products that are completely without perfume.Purification: In the case of a tendency to oily skin, pH skin-neutral products are recommended, washing oils or washing gels having pH values between 5.5 and 6.5. If the skin is very dry, it is best to use cleansing milk. 

Care: Aloe Vera products are a good all-rounder, suitable for every skin condition. For very dry skin, a weekly moisturizing mask is recommended, such as epinouvelle Calmeè, which provides the skin with plenty of moisture – without additional substances. For oily skin, however, creams used should not be too rich – this promotes the formation of blackheads. Make sure that the creams do not contain any vitamin A compounds (e.g., retinol, retinaldehyde) they are taboo during pregnancy. 

Toners: It closes the pores, neutralizes the pH and has a slightly antibacterial effect. Face spray based on thermal water or the epinouvelle Calmeè mask can cool very well. 

Make-up: A light make-up covers blemishes. Water-based products work well. This is indicated by the name “Aqua” (which is on the list of ingredients right at the front). Sometimes a light powder is enough to matt shiny areas and cover small pimples.  

Masks: soothing masks, eg. B. epinouvelle Calmeè, help to relax. 

Peels: They are applied to the moistened skin in order to gently rub off dead skin cells. Natural peels without chemical active ingredients are suitable, for example based on curative or kaolin oil, almond bran or salt. Then enjoy our masks – your skin thank will thank you for the attention and care. 

Protection from the sun

Sometimes the skin of pregnant women in the sun intensifies dark pigment spots. Reason is the high estrogen level, which stimulates the production of melanin (pigment dye). Often, women are affected with a darker skin type or summer sprouts. In contrast, sunscreen, wearing sun hats and using creams with a protection factor of 50 can help. Please avoid sunbathing, especially if you are prone to rosacea (dilated capillaries).

Dear reader,

 

now we are online for a few days. Also our site is not perfect yet – but we are already receiving inquiries.

 

I would like to answer a request immediately – with the current temperatures and the upcoming holiday season perhaps also important for our other readers:

 

Aysè asks: The mask cools very well for a long time. Can I also use it if my facial skin has gotten too much sun?

Of course, the skin burns particularly easily in the places that are strongly exposed to the sun. These are the so-called “sun terraces”. Redness and unpleasant burning of the skin are the typical symptoms of sunburn. In addition to these acute complaints, skin overburdening with UV rays leaves its mark on the long term as well.

 

A sunburn can be a first or second degree burn!

Physicians then speak of “dermatitis solaris” or “acute photodermatosis” – which is an acute inflammation of the skin, which is triggered by excessive UV radiation. Light sunburns are similar to a 1st degree burn. Burning pain and a feeling of heat are also typical and often itches the sunburn. In addition, the skin sometimes “pales” during the healing phase: the burned skin is repelled and renewed.

Bad sunburns can lead to blistering and second degree burns. Even fever can occur. Such severe sunburns need to be treated quickly. This is especially true when symptoms such as nausea, headache or neck stiffness are added, indicating a sunstroke or heat stroke.

Sunburn – what can I do?

 

  1. Out of the sun
  2. Cooling envelopes
  3. Drink (water!)
  4. Moisturizer
  5. if necessary: Cortisone cream 

How long does sunburn last?  The first symptoms usually appear three to six hours after sunbathing. However, when the skin turns red, it is already too late – then the UV radiation has already caused damage. To avoid worse, it is very important to consistently avoid the sun in the following days. After 12 to 24 hours the symptoms are most pronounced. Then they gradually fade away. Sometimes the skin peels off after about two to three days. Severe burns with blistering may leave scars on healing. Now the answer to Aysès question: Yes, dear Aysè, after too much sun, enjoy the cooling and soothing effect of epi nouvelle + calmèe. epi nouvelle + calmée consists of biotechnologically derived cellulose and is without additives. epi nouvelle + calmée is a pure natural product – produced without chemicals and animal raw materials. It is u. A. free of acetone, perfume or fragrances, parabens and silicones. It immediately cools the skin and reduces signs of inflammation. Note:Please do not forget your eyes when you have sunburn on your face, because signs of sunburn can also be seen on the eye, for example in the form of a conjunctivitis or corneal inflammation.
