Unwanted Shine

SAY NO TO OILY SKIN!

Excess oil and shine is a common humidity-induced concern. To combat it, turn to specific cosmetics: regularly exfoliate your face, or apply a rebalacing mask, like Pivoine Pure Purifying Minute Mask. In the morning, apply a mattifying moisturizer before your make-up; you may try our Pivoine Pure Mattifying Fluid.

Go Light on the Make-up

LESS IS MORE

When the overall air moisture is high, opt for an easy, light and natural look; avoid heavy moisturizer and foundation. Instead, apply a tinted moisturizer like a correcting BB cream with a matte finish (we love Immortelle Precious BB Cream): in addition to brightening dull complexion and to targeting first signs of aging, it is a good alternative to powder foundation that tends to streak with humidity. Similarly, prefer cream shadows and blushes.

SET YOUR MAKE-UP

If you really can't go a day without mascara, go for a waterproof version. To finish up, spray a water-based mist on your face to fix make-up for the day and boost its glow. Choose it according to your skin concern: perfecting Pivoine Mist, soothing Shea Butter Mist or plumping Immortelle Precious Mist...

Pack Accordingly

BRING THE ESSENTIALS WITH YOU

To look flawless once you've made it through the rain, keep a few essentials on hand for touchups during the day. Your compact, shadow and lipstick won't overload your purse but will be very useful when you need to be meeting-ready!

CLOSE YOUR HAIR'S SCALES

to avoid fuzzy texture. Work a mousse, gel or oil through your hair to coat and smooth it. Try our Aromachology Sublime Repairing Oil that makes wonders to nourish and protect hair fibers. You can also rinse it with cold water at the end of your shower. As for your hairstyle, the simplest way is to pull your hair back in a bun or a ponytail. If you want to wear it down, wrap it quickly in a loose bun and take it down once inside.
