Cleanse deeply: daily use of make-up remover and cleansers will help eliminate the fine particles present in the air that build up on your skin during the day. Opt for gentle products morning and evening, such as our Shea Lotion or Shea Toner, made with shea butter, to free up your skin and let it breathe again. Don't forget to finish off with a spritz of Shea Mist for a final touch of comfort, thanks to its soothing alcohol-free formula.

Exfoliate gently: once or twice a week, gently exfoliate your skin to eliminate the build-up of pollution toxins that accelerate the development of dead cells. In the shower, use your fingertips to gently massage your skin with Almond Shower Scrub to remove them. In terms of facial care, use Aromachologie Rebalancing Face Mask, a cocktail scented with essential oils, to boost your glow.

Nourish without moderation: every day, remember to moisturise your skin well to protect it from the harmful effects of pollution and allow it to reform its protective barrier. Applying our Immortelle Precious Cream will give your skin long-lasting nourishment while allowing it to breathe thanks to its silky, light texture. What's more its sun protection (SPF 20) helps fight the free radicals formed by the combination of pollution and UV rays.
