To beautifully dazzle during the Christmas holiday season, Sothys has chosen to share its beauty ritual with you so that your face will shine with luminosity!

The make-up removal and cleansing phases are the secret to a radiant face and applying an eye contour cream daily will add radiance to your eyes.

Apply a Hydrating ampoule to skin daily, and follow up morning and evening with Energizing cream on the entire face, neck and décolleté to restore radiance and luminosity to your skin.

The Sothys tip: two weeks before the holidays, get an Energizing intensive treatment in a beauty institute to deeply cleanse your skin and restore radiance and luminosity.

Each week, perform the following ritual: scrub + mask over the entire face, neck and décolleté, avoiding the eye contour. This ritual will drain toxins from deep within your skin. Your face will be clearer, more even-toned and a bit more radiant day after day!

The day before Christmas Eve, go to bed early and get a good night’s sleep so that you will wake up to a fresh and well-rested complexion.

To beautifully dazzle during the holiday season, emphasise your hairstyle, make-up and the little black dress that you’ll be wearing! However, it is important to not forget a key area: the décolleté! Sothys offers you special tips for a naturally beautiful décolleté.

First step: hydration. The thin layer of skin that covers the décolleté easily becomes dry as it contains very few sebaceous glands.

The Sothys tip: Apply a Toning cream enriched with firming and tightening active ingredients.

The day before Christmas Eve, exfoliate the bust area using gentle upward circular strokes, avoiding the nipple area. End your shower with a cold rinse.

On Christmas Eve, apply Shimmering oil to your décolleté for optimal beauty enhancement. Then, lightly add shade to your cleavage area with the Illuminating trio in order to create the appearance of a more plunging neckline.

The holiday season is right around the corner and temptations will be abound! Obviously, it is out of the question to deprive ourselves at this time of the year. So, begin the month of December with a special beauty care programme to keep guilt at bay!

Once a week, exfoliate your body for sumptuous, soft and velvety smooth skin! Delightful, invigorating and replenishing… follow your every desire!

Every morning and evening throughout the entire month of December, apply a slimming treatment to the abdomen, waist, buttocks and thighs to smooth skin.

The Sothys tip: starting on December 10, complete your ritual with Slimming activator in order to optimise results and achieve your ideal figure for Christmas Eve!
