The face is the only part of the body which is exposed and uncovered daily throughout the year.
Its skin is from gets attacked by the dust and dirt of the environment, from the cigarettes smoke, from the ingredients contained in creams and makeup products. If all these pollutants are not systematically removed, the skin pores close, hypersecretion of sebum gets created and dead cells that accumulate on the surface prevent it from breathing. Furthermore, if the skin is not cleaned frequently, any moisturizing or anti-aging care, you may want to do, will have no effect. Purification, then, is the most important beauty care.
The 4 Secrets
Find the right product !
Lotions, Gel or Soap? If there is no special need and your skin does not present problems to consult a dermatologist, choosing the right product will determine the type of your skin.
• If your skin is dry, avoid common soap, which can aggravate the problem. Pick an oily cream (cold cream), which contain oils, glycerine and fatty acids, generates little foam and respects the skin pH. Suitable are also the rich lotion cleaners. In addition to the cleaning agents, they contain in their composition, softening and moisturizing ingredients such as glycolic and lactic acid, but must be rinsed thoroughly, because if they remain on the skin can cause intense dry skin.
• For sensitive skin, more suitable products, are the ones, with soothing and hypoallergenic formulas, and avoid those containing alcohol, which can irritate it.
• For the two previous types of skin, there are gels and cleaning liquids in the form of water, containing the innovative component of the micelles. Micelles are compounds in the form of beads, containing fatty ester acid derivatives, which have in their structure a hydrophilic part on the outside and a lipophilic internally. This specificity enables micelles to dissolve and remove dirt easily from the skin without rubbing and rinsing.
• If your skin is oily, prefer, that the cleaning product you choose, contains salicylic acid, clay or tea tree oil, ingredients known for their sebum and antibacterial agents, which removes sebum, but not the natural skin lipids. These products come in the form of gels, mousses, or liquid soap.
To make your skin fresh and bright, it must be cleaned twice a day. One must be absolutely in the evening before going to bed, and the other the next morning. Anything more can be considered exaggeration, and make the skin more vulnerable and cause problems.
•Do not ignore the specialized products
Many women wonder if the lotion is necessary after the emulsion and whether to use a special product for cleansing the eyes. Role of lotions, commonly accompanies a cleansing emulsion, is not only to complete the purification and to provide a stimulating action but also to remove residues of the emulsion, that an not be removed only with water. Besides water, it can exacerbate dryness. The specific components in a lotion control shine, relax or tighten pores. But if you use products that indicate rinsing with water, the use of lotion is not necessary, unless you like the freshness and the sent it gives.
Cleaning has its right way. Nothing about hasty and violent movements. Apply the cleanser with your fingertips, and with gentle, circular movements make a light massage on the face.
Once a week, treat your skin with extra care, with exfoliation and mask.
After the usual cleaning, choose a scrub product with fine grain (if your skin is sensitive, consult your dermatologist), so with a light sanding, cleanse the skin more deeply, in order to remove dead cells from the surface and to improve the texture.
Then apply a mask that you will choose according to the needs or desires (anti-aging, moisturizing, glitter, etc.), allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deeper for a more refreshing effect.
