  • How to remove dead skin ?

    Over the years, we have heard more about the importance of having daily exfoliation, both for our face and for our body. Do we really know why it matters? In order to clarify the subject, we decided to explain it to you in this article.

    To understand the importance of exfoliation, it is important to know that the first layer of our skin called the epidermis is used, among other things, as a protective barrier. In addition, the role of the epidermis is to renew the skin cells approximately every 26 days. By getting rid of older cells called dead cells, or dead skin, it make sure to protect the skin effectively.

    This is where the exfoliant takes importance. Its role is primarily to dislodge your skin pores, removing any dead cells that clog the pores. In this way, your skin will regain its usual glow.

    It is suggested to exfoliate once or twice a week. The frequency depends on the sensitivity of your skin as well as the environment to which it is exposed.

    Sur un fond blanc, au centre de l’image on peut voir une boite carrée vert foncé ouverte remplie de confettis placés de façon désordonnés à l’intérieur et une partie à l’extérieur de la boite. Au centre de cette boite, au-dessus des confettis on peut voir deux sachets dorés d’exfoliants pour le corps placé à plat en diagonale. Sur le devant de ces sachets, on peut également voir une étiquette vert foncé illustrée par le logo de Be-U Cosmétiques en rose pâle ainsi que des symboles et écritures.



  • Why should we prevent our skin from aging?

    The aging of the skin affects all of us. It is however possible to protect our skin from aging in order to slow down this process. First, the aging of the skin has an effect on the first two layers of the skin; it contributes to thinning and impedes the efficiency of the epidermis (1st layer) and the dermis (2nd layer).


    Which has certain consequences:

    – Drying of the skin: This thinning of the skin layers contributes to the decrease in the production of fatty liquids including sebum which hydrates and protects the skin.

    – Loss of elasticity of the skin: The modification of the dermis causes a loss in the tone of the skin. A loss of elasticity is more prone to the formation of irregularity or even hollows on the surface of the skin.

    – The sensitivity of the skin: Since the layers that previously protected the skin are reduced, the latter becomes more sensitive to its environment, such as the heat of the sun for example. It is therefore very important to take care of your skin while protecting it and to know your skin type in order to treat it adequately.

    Consult the Be-U Cosmetics skin diagnosis to find the right product for your skin that will allow you to start protecting it adequately.

    What is a natural skincare product?

    It is sometimes difficult to distinguish natural skincare products from organic or chemical skincare products. What are the real differences between each of the terms and which ingredients are dangerous to your health? Let us highlight these differences.

    Natural skincare products

    To be considered natural, a natural skincare product must contain ingredients which:

    • Come from a plant or mineral
    • Have been transformed, if it is the case, by a simple process. A simple process can be defined, for example, by a transformation resulting from green chemistry, cold pressing, distillation, oxidation, etc. The important is that the process is not polluting and that the ingredient is not extremely transformed. For example, you can find, among natural ingredients, vegetable oils, essential oils, plant extracts, fruit extracts, seeds, etc.


    The benefits of natural ingredients in natural cosmetic products

    Many natural ingredients are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants. The latter is absorbed by the skin and nourishes it, thereby.

    Be-u Cosmetics, uses several plants and fruits ingredients in its natural skincare products. For each of your personalized products, a natural active ingredient is added.

    For example, for sensitive skin, our Arnica extract is added to your cream.

    Arnica is well recognized and is used for its anti-inflammatory, healing and anti-redness effects. We add 2% of this active ingredient to all your natural facial cosmetics if you mention having sensitive skin. To learn more about this ingredient, visit our ingredients page.

    What are the natural ingredients in Be-u Cosmetics’ natural products?

    For very dry skin, we add a plant extract of Imperata Cylindrica to your natural skincare products. This plant, often living in flooded environments, has hydration properties that last for more than 24 hours. This is due to its high concentration of potassium and 3-dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP). Imperata Cylindrica will, therefore, help the skin’s collagen synthesis, which will provide natural hydration to your skin.

    This ingredient is added to your personalized creams when you mention having very dry skin in your skin diagnosis. To learn more about this ingredient, visit our ingredients page.


    What are the ingredients to avoid?

    We often hear that toxic ingredients, such as silicones, petroleum derivatives, parabens, sulfates are part of our skin care products. These ingredients are often used by industry to make creams more silky to the touch, to help products penetrate the skin, preserve the product, etc. But are these ingredients really dangerous for our health?

    In fact, it all depends on their concentration in the product and also on the ingredient in question.

    However, it goes without saying that these ingredients often have harmful effects on the environment since they do not degrade and are not absorbed by nature. Thus, an accumulation of these ingredients occurs in nature and therefore creates pollution. Studies have even shown that it takes around 500 years for silicones to disappear.

    In order to limit its impact on the environment, Be-u Cosmetics, therefore, does not use any silicone, paraben, petroleum or sulfate in its natural skincare products.

    In conclusion, it is important to stay informed about the ingredients that make up your skincare products. Many brands use the label “natural cosmetics” in their marketing, while often few ingredients are actually on their list.
