What is homeostasis?
Delbôve products provide the skin with everything that can help it to maintain this state of dynamic balance, in order to safeguard its health. This is not by using products that, through artificial chemical stimulation, attempt to make up for, or superficially correct, a deficiency or weakness, but in fact by using active substances that stimulate its surface, in order for it to function to the best of its abilities.
Why is the hydrolipid film so important?
The hydrolipidic film is a thin protective film located on the skin’s surface, that is
composed of water and fats. It acts as a protective barrier against external aggressions (wind, pollution,...,germs and possible bacteria) but also ensures the skin’s hydration while retaining water. It also guarantees the skin's suppleness, radiance and soft texture. The Magic Ritual protects and restores this hydrolipidic film, so that the skin may under its protection find its natural and healthy state of dynamic balance.
For what type of skin type is the Magic Ritual recommended?
All skin types. The Magic Ritual is about balancing the skin, maintaining its acid pH and respecting the it's natural barrier so the skin will regain its ability to become self-functioning. It’s a holistic cleanser that gently & deeply cleanses, even the most sensitive skins, without stripping or causing agression. It enables the skin to fully benefit from the other formulas in the range adapted to each skin need.
What is the best way to start a Delbôve Treatment?
The basis of any Delbôve treatment is The Magic Ritual - the cleansing and balancing duo composed of the Crème Sorcière+Eau Sorcière. This foundation of all the treatments in our range, was developed from the principle of homeostasis, with a single aim: to re-establish and maintain the balance of your skin and of its natural functions. The Crème Sorcière+Eau Sorcière treatment always begins in the evening, because good nocturnal hygiene is the most important factor for your skin’s homeostasis.
Delbôve products are formulated to be combined and mixed with each other to meet the needs of each user: all of the formulas work in synergy and each is surprisingly versatile, increasing its uses. The Magic Ritual prepares your skin to better and fully benefit from any other cream in our range.
Why use the Crème Sorcière and Eau Sorcière Emulsion also in the morning?
The Crème Sorcière+Eau Sorcière treatment always begins in the evening, because good nocturnal hygiene is the most important factor for your skin’s homeostasis.
However, it is also important to cleanse the skin after a night's sleep, to wash away any toxins and sweating that are eliminated by the body during sleep, that may accumulate on the skin’s surface, blocking pores and modifying the skin's flora. The Magic Ritual in the morning serves to preserve the benefits acquired by the skin, during the night, and help reinforce the hydrolipidic barrier and its ph-balance for the active day ahead. Also, the light massage of the ritual will help stimulate and depuff a sleep-wrinkled face.
Why do I have to spray the Eau Sorcière gradually?
Our Eau Sorcière is a potent botanical essence composed of mother tinctures, it is not simply a flower water (less potent). It is necessary to adapt your skin gradually to this potent Beauty Elixir.
During the first week, put 2 sprays in 50ml of water then, build this number up gradually by the week. This routine should look as follows for the first month of treatment:
Week one: 2 sprays of Eau Sorcière per treatment.
Week two: 4 sprays of Eau Sorcière per treatment.
Week three: 6 Sprays of Eau Sorcière per treatment.
Week four: 8 sprays of Eau Sorcière per treatment.
How do I remove my Magic Ritual?
Gently remove the excess emulsion with the cotton pads previously soaked in the water and Eau Sorcière preparation. When finished, its normal to feel a light film on your skin, this film will help rebuild the hydrolipidic film and protect your skin from climatic and environmental damage.
How long does it take to see results?
The Magic Ritual, to ensure long-term beneficial results, has two requirements: perseverance and, in the beginning, a little/touche of patience & commitment. The reason for this is that in addition to its intrinsic qualities, it also possesses the quality of not promising you results in a flash (which very often are short-lived). However, it is possible that after your very first emulsion with Crème Sorcière+Eau Sorcière, you could feel an immediate sensation of comfort and renewal. Then, depending on the degree of imbalance of your skin, noticeable results will start to occur, sometimes as soon as a few days of continuous use of our products.
And, while it may seem complicated at first, it will quickly become something you won’t want to miss, a natural appointment with your skin. As the days go by, you will no longer be able to go without this beneficial moment of sensuality: the pleasure of the texture of the Emulsion Sorcière between your fingers, the delicate fragrances that it releases when you bring your hands close to your face, the happiness of learning and repeating steps that are both gentle and toning, and will stimulate microcirculation, the feeling of pleasure and overall relaxation…
Sustained use will ensure long-lasting results.
After beginning the Magic Ritual, I have noticed that I have some redness & blemishes that has appeared. Is this normal?
If you are switching your daily routine to natural products for the first time, it is normal that the skin will rebel. We call this the rebound effect that occurs during the period in which the skin is adapting itself to the new, natural ingredients. With products that have chemical compositions, the skin becomes habituated to not working by itself. If redness and blemishes appear they are there to tell you that the skin is eliminating toxins. So what is there to do? Have some patience, continue doing you Magic Ritual whilst giving your skin the time to regain its natural balance. This usually lasts less than a week. You won't regret this because your skin will come out looking better than ever on the other side.
