Guinot Hydra Bronze

Growing up, I was a huge sun bather, I just couldn’t get enough!  The darker I got, the more sun I would crave! Summer days were spent laying at the beach or pool for many hours, trying to achieve the perfect bronzed body.   Now that I am educated on what those extended days in the sun actually did to my skin, I’ve looked for other, safer ways to achieve the same summer glow without the risk.  This is why, when Guinot introduced their Lait Hydra Bronze moisturizer, I knew I had to try it!  I have tried so many creams claiming to give a natural looking tan.  I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to self-tanners.  But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try one more!

Guinot’s Hydra Bronze is unlike any other cream I’ve tried before.  It also applies evenly every time, and I have yet to see any streaks or unnatural looking pigments.  The cream itself is white, which means it won’t rub off on your clothes or sheets.  The color develops into a soft brown, so there will be no orange in sight! What really surprised me was that this cream doesn’t just tan your skin, it’s also moisturizing it too!  I was amazed at how hydrated my skin felt after applying the cream.  There wasn’t any need for body lotion!  Also Lait Hydra Bronze was created to be used on both the face and body. The main ingredients in the Lait Hydra Bronze is DHA and Erythrulose,which is what gives the skin a tan pigmentation that intensifies with continued use. It also contains a Hydrocyte Complex.  This is what gives your skin all the hydration it’s going to need.

 

 

How To Use For Best Results: 


To get the most out of this product, I would recommend exfoliating your skin beforehand.  Removing the dead skin cells on your body will result in a more natural-looking and longer-lasting tan.  Use Lait Hydra Bronze right after getting out of the shower and drying off with a towel. Your skin can soak up all of the hydration that this cream provides. When applying it to your face, blend the cream down your neck and onto your decollete; this will give you a more natural look. This cream can be used several times a week to maintain or increase the desired level of color.  It is important to remember that this cream is not a sun protectant, you will still need to use an SPF if you plan to be out in the sun.

I am someone who is very into makeup.  Even as a little girl, I would go through my mother’s makeup drawer and turn my face into what I thought was a masterpiece (that’s debatable.) When I learned that Guinot was coming out with a foundation last year, my ears instantly perked up.

When I first tried Youth Time Foundation, I was initially impressed with the amount of pigmentation this product had.  With just a light application the coverage was pretty good, I was able to hide marks from blemishes fairly easily.  After having it on my skin for a while I started to notice the texture of my skin.  It left my skin feeling smooth, almost velvety.  This is not something I’ve found with other foundations on the market.  When the foundation was on, it gave my skin a perfect mix of a matte and dewy finish. There wasn’t any “shine” to my skin, but there was a definite glow about it.  Also I noticed when I started wearing it, I was receiving more compliments on how healthy I looked. When I apply my foundation, I find it easiest to do so with my fingers.  The texture and consistency of the actual foundation is very similar to a face cream.

Now that I’ve gone on about how great the foundation looks on the skin, let me explain why.  Youth Time contains Optical Fillers and Spherical Fillers of Hyaluronic Acid.  What this does is it literally fills in the grooves of wrinkles making the skin appear more plump.  This foundation also includes Vitamin E, Seaweed, and Green Tea extracts.  These ingredients are amazing because they are actually slowing down the aging process, by strengthening skin elasticity.

 

One negative is that this foundation is that it currently only has 3 colors. However I do find that the colors are fairly easy to blend and can suit a variety of light to medium complexions.

Guinot’s Instant Radiance Face Mask (Dynamisant Anti-Fatigue) helps to achieve many beneficial results for your skin. This mask renews the skin’s radiance, while also revitalizing and smoothing your features. A combination of cold essential oils, AHA Complex, Dynalift, Lift Firming Complex, and Hydrocyte Complex work together to make the Instant Radiance Mask a truly unique product. This product is perfect to use on the day of big event because it makes the skin appear visibly healthier instantly.

 

 

 Check out a video on how to use this mask by clicking the link below.

 

 

I would like to discuss just how the key active ingredients in the Instant Radiance Mask will benefit your skin.  The mint and eucalyptus cold essential oils refresh the skin, which restores radiance and provides vitality. You will notice that these oils give the mask an incredible smell, as well as a cooling effect to on your skin! The AHA Complex boosts cellular renewal by eliminating dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. Dyalift forms a film at the skin’s surface that coats and firms the skin. Lift Firming Complex combats skin laxity thanks to its instant and intense firming effect. Hydrocyte Complex hydrates and provides long-lasting moisture to cells, compensating dehydration lines.  It’s simply amazing that Guinot has been able to combine all of these great benefits in just one bottle.

 


One of my absolute favorite features of the Instant Radiance face mask is that it actively exfoliates your skin while it’s treating it. This makes it a perfect product for anyone who doesn’t have time to use a separate exfoliator and a mask.  Lastly and for some people the most important feature is that this masque can give you results in as little as three minutes (yes, I said THREE)! This mask is ideal for all skin types as well.  For best results use once or twice a week for up to 10 minutes.

 

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: GUINOT NUCLEIC DEFENSE

The Guinot Control Laboratory in France is one of the most renowned in the cosmetic sector. It has been recognized as a leader amongst skincare research labs, and incorporates the most modern technology into their research. The Guinot Lab is also dedicated to creating and producing products that go above and beyond the normal standards. To that I should note that all Guinot products are formulated without Parabens or GMOs (Genetically Modified Organism).

 

NucleicDefence
As summer approaches I want to share with you the new technology and effectiveness of the Nucleic Defense Sun Protective Range that Guinot has created. This product range has triple the protection of your standard Sun product. Nucleic Defense is the first sunscreen formulated with DNA molecules and sun filters. DNA molecules absorb and neutralize the UV rays that can modify skin cell DNA. In a nutshell the ultraviolet light from the sun causes damage to the skin cells by actually changing the structure of the DNA in them. Introducing small bits of DNA (thymidine dinucleotide) can boost the cell’s repair pathways so they remove more of the damaged bits of DNA after UV exposure. Sunscreens without DNA in them can leave “windows” on the skin through which certain UV rays can penetrate and modify DNA. Applying DNA to the skin’s surface “fills out” these “windows,” thus protecting the cells’ own DNA.

 

GuinotDNA

This product line also contains a natural ingredient called, Heliotropine (created by Guinot) which helps the skin tame the negative effects of the Sun. Heliptropine is derived from the Greek words helios (sun) and tropos (affinity). The benefits that this ingredient does for the skin is substantial; I will list a few benefits below.

 

Skin protection

  • Protects against harmful UV rays
  • Promotes the production of melanin, a natural skin protection from UVrays

Stimulates natural, even tanning process

  • Generates and accelerates melanin synthesis, thereby enhancing a tan.
  • Prevents formation of pigmentation marks
  • Ensures an even distribution of melanin on the skin’s surface

Fights low tolerance to the Sun

  • Comforts skin by strengthening its natural defense
  • Limits erythemia and sun-induced allergies

 

Basically the DNA in these products will act as a barrier as well as a magnate, by attracting the Sun’s rays, thus protecting and shielding your own DNA. Not only is your DNA kept intact and untouched, but the UV rays are kept from damaging your cells.

 

In my opinion, this Nucleic Defense Range is one of the most advanced programs for skin protection and has several different products to satisfy all skin types and weather conditions.

 

At Fountains, we want to make sure you are informed about sun protection and if you have further questions as to which product is right for you and when and how to use please give us a call, or stop by, and we would be happy to assist you.

I wish everyone a warm happy and protected summer.
