For a fresh, radiant-looking complexion

This transition period is ideal for detoxifying and boosting the skin before warmer days arive. It’s important to help make sure the skin is able to relaunch cellularfuction, regulate sebum production, and prepare it for the sun’s first rays. It’s an entire skin care regiment!

Hydrate and protect your skin

When the temperature rises, UVA rays can attack the skin and cause premature skin ageing. Skin is also subject to the harmful effects of pollution that can alter hydration… This is a toxic cocktail for the skin.

Achieve « new » skin

A season of transition and a time to repair eventual alternations the skin undergoes caused by sun exposure, from chlorine in swimming pools, to saltwater… and, the skin should ‘un-tan’ beautifully! It’s important to gently remove dead skin cells with regular exfoliation followed by thorough hydration with a nourishing cream.

MY SPINACH GNOCCHI

  • FOR 4 PEOPLE
  • PREPARATION: 40 MINUTES – COOKING: A FEW MINUTES
  • 2lbs (1 kg) fresh spinach, or if none available 1 lb (500 kg) frozen spinach
  • 10 oz. (300 g) ricotta
  • 1 Tbs. (15 g) butter
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 5 Tbs. (40 g) gratedparmesan cheese, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 21/2 oz. (50 g) flour
  • Salt, pepper
1
Cook the spinach in boiling salted water 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well and return to the pan.
2
Add the ricotta, butter and salt and pepper to taste.
3
Mix well and cook on low heat 3 to 4 minutes until the water has evaporated.
4
Remove from the heat and add the eggs, parmesan and flour.
5
Mix the preparation and let it cool so that it becomes firm.
6
Using a tablespoon, remove a small quantity of the preparation and shape large gnocchi about ¾ in. (2 cm) in diameter. Flour your hands so that the mixture doesn’t stick.
7
Cook the gnocchi in a large volume of boiling salted water.
8
When they float to the surface and have nicely swelled, remove and drain them.
9
When all the gnocchi are cooked, make some noisette butter, pour it on the gnocchi and sprinkle with the extra parmesan cheese. Arrange the gnocchi in a lightly buttered ovenproof dish. Heat your oven and place the gnocchi in the oven 5 minutes before serving.
10
To make the noisette butter, put some butter in a rather large frying pan on regular heat. When the butter stops foaming and takes on a light brown colour and smells like hazelnuts (noisettes) It is ready. Pour it into a cold recipient to stop the cooking.

Comforted skin, including the lips, and hands!

Skin can be affected by the cold, wind, changes in temperature (indoor and outdoor). Skin tends to become dry; It can feel tight and look red. It is thirsty for comfort. Skin needs rich creams for optimal hydration. But also remember to nourish the skin from the inside!

My seasonal shopping

Drinking in enough water through soups and herbal teas, helps hydrate the dermal skin layers and choose seasonal foods like beans and fruit that are rich in antioxidants (be sure to keep the skin with all the nutrients). Think about getting enough vitamin B, which is essential to skin renewal (beer yeast) and to fill up on fibers and minerals. Finally, seafood like scallops and oysters are rich in omega-3, zinc (essential for collagen synthesis) and selenium.
