New challenges, new achievements, new dates to celebrate. And, if there are new dates to celebrate, there is a preparation to do. Are you ready to discover our Beauty Calendar 2021?

1st Day of the Year
The First Day of the Year is usually a particularly demanding day. After a long and intense night, the skin needs extra care to regain vitality and start the New Year with energy. 2021 may be starting at a different pace, but that is no excuse for starting the year without paying special attention to your skin. Choose your favorite Caudalie mask, press play on your playlist, and add 10 minutes to your routine. Moisturizing, illuminating, purifying, or detox. Choose the one your skin needs the most and start 2021 in the best possible way.
Lower temperatures force the rescue of the polar shirts that are left forgotten in the closet for the rest of the year. It also requires reinforcement in hydration, because the cold is a real enemy of the skin. Hands, lips, nose… Don’t neglect hydration. Hand cream and moisturizing balm will always fit in your bag and your skin will thank you. Winter is also the perfect time to introduce richer textures into your routine, so give preference to creams and balms and avoid the tugging sensation caused by the cold. But Winter is not all bad news! If you have been waiting for the perfect time to start introducing retinol into your routine, this is the right time. Retinol B3 serum from La Roche-Posay can be an excellent option since it is formulated for sensitive skin. All the anti-aging benefits of retinol, without the unwanted effects associated with this active ingredient.
Valentine’s Day is a date that never goes unnoticed. Single or in love, we all have a Valentine’s Day ritual and we all want to be at our best. For this date, we created a special illuminating routine. Start by cleansing your face with your favorite cleansing care. We suggest the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser for normal to dry skin; and CeraVe Foaming Cleanser for combination to oily skin. Then, with the help of a cotton pad, apply the bi-phase Yuza lotion, by Erborian. A lotion with illuminating properties, which will simultaneously moisturize and nourish the skin. Serum time and the choice could not be any other than Sesderma’s C-Vit serum. In addition to brightening the skin, this serum is a powerful antioxidant treatment to prevent and correct the signs of photo-aging. And finally, if your skin enjoys richer textures, finish with Erborian’s Yuza Sorbet emulsion. Or if, on the contrary, you like lighter textures, opt for the new Red Pepper Pulp gel-cream also from Erborian. For extra luminosity and absolutely flawless skin, even out your skin tone and hide any small imperfections with the BB Cream by Erborian and add extra light to your look with the CC Eye from the same brand.
Carnival is synonymous with party, music and freedom. But it is also synonymous with astronomical amounts of make-up and glitter. Okay, we don’t have to cancel Carnival because of that. We guarantee that it is possible to balance fun with skin care. We have a three-step cleansing ritual perfect for removing all traces of make-up from Carnival and leaving your skin clean and comfortable. Start by removing all eye make-up with La Roche-Posay’s Respectissime waterproof eye make-up remover. It is indicated for sensitive eyes and gently removes even waterproof make-up. Then, on a dry face, apply a cleansing oil, such as the Solid Cleansing Oil by Erborian or Caudalie’s Cleansing Oil. Cleansing care with a rich oil formula has the ability to “melt” other products, such as make-up or sunscreen. Oily skins, don’t be scared. This step is also for you and we promise you will not regret it! Finally, use your daily cleansing care: drier skins will prefer cleansing milk, while combination to oily skins will prefer a cleansing gel. Clean and comfortable skin, harmless Carnival.
One of the dates that can’t go unnoticed. Father’s Day is a day of thanking and showing all the love we have for one of the most important people in our life. The Vichy Homme line has become one of the most acclaimed and sought after by the male universe and, therefore, is perfect for a little Father’s Day surprise. Combine the soothing after-shave balm Vichy Sensi-Baume with the anti-aging moisturizer Vichy Homme Structure Force and make this Father’s Day an unforgettable day.
Spring comes with longer, sunnier days. As the temperature rises, the skin begins to prefer more fluid and lighter textures. A great opportunity to try the gel-cream version of your favorite cream and leave your skin more comfortable. With the increase in sun exposure, there is a care that is mandatory: sunscreen! Don’t get us wrong, using sun protection is essential all year round. But it’s time to replace the SPF15 with an SPF50. In addition to avoiding sunburn, sunscreen also helps fight photo-aging and the formation of dark spots. This may also be a good time to introduce a Vitamin C serum, such as Pure Vitamin C10 from La Roche-Posay, into your routine. A powerful anti-aging serum, highly concentrated in pure vitamin C, for antioxidant and anti-wrinkle action, which will enhance the protection of the sunscreen.
After Christmas, Easter is one of the most important dates to gather your family and enjoy the company of all those you love. It is also a date that involves maaaaany family photos and, therefore, there is nothing like going prepared to rock. Apply your favorite make-up foundation, warm your face with La Roche-Posay bronzing powder and add more intensity to your eyes with the LRP Respectissime mascara. A very natural look that will make all the difference!
It goes without saying that, on this day, all the attention is on the lips. So you have to take care of them! The first step is to gently exfoliate your lips with Erborian’s 7 Herbs Scrub. A scrub that will leave the lips soft, smooth, without wrinkles, and volumized. Then, just apply your favorite lip balm and let your lips be the protagonists of the day. You can choose the Caudalie lipstick or the Rêve de Miel lip balm from Nuxe. Whatever your option is, hydration cannot be lacking. Give your skin luminosity and tone with Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir and make the most of this day.
Every year, Mother’s Day gives us the opportunity to compensate our mothers for all the headaches we cause them and to thank them for always being there for us. Remember the strength your Mother has with an exquisite fragrance like the perfume Divin by Caudalie or with a sophisticated fragrance like the Prodigieux by Nuxe. You can also apologize for every wrinkle you have caused and, for that, we suggest the Redermic line from La Roche-Posay.
Soak up the sun, take a dip in the sea, enjoy a cool drink, and finally read some of the books that have been piling up throughout the year. Summer is the favorite season for many and we can understand why. But it does require some special care that is worth remembering. Introducing a sun preparer in your routine, like the Heliocare oral daily protection and tan enhancer, is one of the best tricks that we can unveil. This supplement offers photoimmunoprotection, while guaranteeing a more intense, beautiful, and long-lasting tan. Truly the 2-in-1 we all look for in the summer! Another great trick is body scrub. Before starting the bathing season, make an exfoliation (Collistar’s Talasso-Scrub is divine) and ensure a uniform and truly beautiful tan. After a day at the beach, don’t forget to give your skin moisturizing, refreshing, and soothing care. Sesderma’s Hidraloe gel, with aloe vera, is an excellent option. Leave it in the refrigerator during the day and apply it to the skin after showering. Your skin will love it! During the summer, mists will always be your face’s best friends. Choose the Toleriane Ultra 8 if you just want to hydrate your skin; or choose the C-Vit mist if you want to boost antioxidant protection throughout the day. We guarantee: you will never feel your skin tighten again on hot summer days. PS. Don’t forget the most important thing: sun protection.
If you are part of the group of people who did not celebrate their anniversary in 2020, this suggestion is for you. In 2021, the preparation for the birthday begins 10 days earlier with Vichy’s Liftactiv Fresh Shot. A 10-day concentrated antioxidant treatment, with pure vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, to achieve a luminous, healthier, full of energy, and less marked skin. To further enhance the luminosity of your skin, start your birthday with the Red Pepper energizing mask by Erborian. You’ll have every reason to be in the spotlight and enjoy the day like you didn’t in 2020.
International Laziness Day
This is a date that goes very unnoticed in our year, because, let’s face it, no one needs an excuse to enjoy a good day of laziness. Imagining a lazy day includes 4 mandatory elements: the comfort of the sofa, delicious popcorn, endless comedy films or a marathon of the series of the moment, and, of course, a good tissue mask. And why are tissue masks so perfect for lazy days? Because you don’t even have to leave your couch to place it or remove it. Choose the Sesderma tissue mask that best suits your skin, let the mask act for the recommended time, remove it, and let the skin absorb the excess. Lazy Day successfully completed!
If you have acne-prone skin, you know that the post-summer period is especially critical. Contrary to what you may think, sun exposure is not beneficial for acne-prone skin and, as a consequence, it is recurrent the worsening of acne in the fall. So, it is the perfect time to introduce La Roche-Posay Ultra Concentrated Serum into your routine. Treatment for adult skin that eliminates imperfections, reduces open pores, controls sebum production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, smooths the skin’s grain, and reduces acne blemishes and marks. The arrival of autumn also brings fearsome seasonal hair loss. The solution lies in Vichy Aminexil Clinical 5 anti-hair loss ampoules. A treatment for hair loss, available for men and women, that acts on the 5 most frequent causes of hair loss. In 2021, your only autumn concern will be to start using the umbrella, because summer is over.
The most special night of the year! The family gathers, a lot of sweets are eaten (shh, nobody needs to know) and the same board games that were played last Christmas are played again. And again. And again. It is a family home evening, so comfort is the keyword of the day. Start your Christmas day by giving your skin an extra dose of hydration with the Erborian Bamboo Waterlock hydro plumping mask and then apply Vichy Mineral 89 serum. For luminous skin and a “skin without make-up” appearance, finish with CC Cream by Erborian. A very simple routine that will leave your skin hydrated and beautiful all day long. So you can fully enjoy this magical night!
New Year’s Eve

The C-Vit Intensive Serum, in ampoules, will be your best ally. An intensive treatment with immediate results that gives luminosity and vitality to dull and tired skins.
