The temperature keeps raising and it gets your skin red, shiny, and kind of greasy! It's time to update your skincare routine for summer! 

There are two important seasons to watch out. Winter dries your skin and Summer, well, it tends to do the opposite. Sunbathing may give you dark spots, sebum excess and pimples, sunburns... and much more amazing stuff like these. Your skin desperately needs to be saved from sand, sea, swimming pool water...  Here's how you can save your skin and update your skincare routine for summer.

Skin Pigmentation

We mention them earlier in this post. Dark spots happen quite often during summer. Don't freak out, they won't stay on your pretty face for a long time. Mainly caused by summer, these dark spots can pop everywhere on your face and body. They are not dangerous, but they can darken your complexion keep you from glowing naturally. 

The ultimate weapon? The Crème Clarifiante et Unifiante Caracol Skincare - A clarifying snail cream. 

The key to such a powerful skincare? Papain! It's an enzyme found in Papaya that is used in natural cosmetics to gently exfoliate the skin and get rid of the dead cells. Thus, you'll have a brand new skin with your original color. 

The Crème Clarifiante also contains Chromabright. Chroma...what?? It's a scientific molecule known to be a whitening agent. It slightly whitens the skin to give its glow back. Applied on a regular basis, this clarifying snail cream will help you unify and brighten your complexion!! 

Besides being a super gentle whitening agent, this cream offers an SPF15! Perfect, to prevent dark spots from popping. Be careful, that's a small SPF to wear in the city, if you go to the beach, choose a higher SPF.

Choose the right sunscreen

Summer means sunscreen! You've been hiding in your cave for too long and now you're about to expose your face to the sun. You must protect your epidermis from UV rays. It doesn't matter in you're having a coffee in a park or tanning on a beach in the Caribbeans you need to protect yourself from the sun. UV rays are always there! No matter if the sun is shining or it's cloudy. So here are our favorite products to use:

In the city, we choose :

Oil Free Matte SPF30 de Dermalogica that hydrates your skin without greasing it which is perfect for mixt and oily skins. It purifies the epidermis, protects from UV rays thanks to its SPF30. That's the right fit for skin with flaws.

For sunny holidays, we choose a special suntan lotion that doesn't stick to the sand. Bye, bye sandy butts...:

La Crème Solaire Avène SPF30 ou SPF50, its advantage? The thermal water that soothes and smoothes irritated skins.

Soleil Biafine SPF50, this sunscreen spray doesn't leave your skin sticky nor wet. It's like an invisible mist. Very practical to use! 

You now have everything you need to enjoy the good vitamin D! Don't forget to apply sunscreen every 2 hours when on the beach and reapply some after swimming and sweating (if you're doing sports) or you'll have very bad sunburns. And there's nothing worse than feeling your skin burning and peeling. 


You thought you were a steak on the grill and your skin is all burnt? We all have been there, sunburns are the worst thing ever. You may think it'll be over in a few days, but it really is worse than this. Your skin burnt, and the skin cells are damaged. It activates the skin aging. So what to do when having a sunburn?

The key is hydration. A very rich textured cream will manage to moisturize and repair your skin. Let it pause like a mask before going to bed and you'll be glowing in the morning! Pick your favorite, from the Creme Hydrante et Nutritive which is a nutritious skincare for dry skins containing 3 extra virgin oils, to the Serum Rajeunissant which a powerful serum that'll boost and reenergize your skin thanks to its high concentration.

Aloe Vera gel is also a powerful natural healing agent. Did we mention there was some in our Serum? You can also use Aloe vera gel directly on your skin, by chopping a stem of the plant. Peel it and you'll find the gel inside. You can also buy it in your local drugstore.

Sunburns are really painful, but you can also ease the pain by spraying thermal water on your face. 

Therefore, if your sunburns are worse than what you thought they look, you should definitely use Biafine cream. A must-have in your suitcase! 

Don't forget, hydration remains very important to heal sunburns. But don't go grease all your face! You need to update your beauty routine, trust me you don't want nasty spots, pimples sebum excess, and shiny face. Here's how to do so.

Adapted hydration

Get rid of your winter rich oily textured cream! During summer your skin needs lighter skincare products. Summer weather means sweating more. Sebum excess causes pimples and imperfections. An oily textured cream will enhance the greasiness of your face. In order to avoid pimples and feel fresh all day long choose a light cream. 

The Gel Crème de Régénération is made for oily and mixt skin and especially acne problems. Its texture is very light and so fresh your skin absorb it very quickly. It's not made of oils so there are no risks you get pimples. There is a concentration of 85,2% of snail slime in this cream to help you balance your sebum production and regenerate your cells. To keep your pretty face hydrated and moisturized even without grease it, we've added biossacharide fucogel-1! Ok, we know it sounds scary, but trust us its a polysaccharide 100% vegetal originated that is extremely good at hydrating your skin.  

Update your skincare routine for summer and you'll shine so bright when back at work work work! And don't forget the cleansing step before going to bed, your moiturizer will penetrate even better in your epidermis. produit caracol skincare été

1, 2, 3... Cleansing!

All year long, you must make the cleansing step as your number 1 step in your beauty routine. Whether your skin is dry or oily, you need to cleanse your face at least once a day. That's the secret to a beautiful skin. 

Cleansing your face is essential during summer. Because you are going to face sea salt, swimming pool chlorine, sweat, sun.... get rid of all this dirt with a good night time pore cleansing.

Twice a day, use a gentle cleansing product and the Caracol Skincare Lotion Tonique to gently exfoliate after makeup removal. You can cleanse only once a day if you have a very sensitive skin. We promise you baby skin! 

Here's how you shine and clean up that face so that your moisturizer penetrates the skin cells even deeper and is more efficient.

Spray that floral water

Let's keep cooling! Floral water can hydrate your skin and refresh it both at the same time! We love saving time. All you have to do is to spray it all over your face before applying your moisturizer.

Cornflower water and Rose water are famous in the cosmetic industry and there's a reason for this. Cornflower water smells a bit, but helps you decongestionate your puffy eyes. As for Rose water it fights imperfections and clear your skin. There are so many other interesting flowers you can use.

Caracol Skincare Lotion Tonique Nettoyante is formulated with witch hazel water, which is known to soothe redness, diminish irritations and skin inflammation. The perfect skincare for sensitive skin. 

In short,

This summer YOU'll shine bright like a diamond, not your face! Update your skincare routine for summer to protect, repair and clear your skin. Choose light textured products that'll give that soft baby skin touch! And most of all, DRINK a lot of water to hydrate and clean your body from within.
