Do you all know about skin care?
Today on the street I accidentally ran into a girl. She did not notice how she was dressed and what her figure, attracted the attention of her face, or rather – the skin. She was all chapped and cracked, the same applied to her lips. But it is no secret to anyone that beauty begins with the skin.
I think many people know that facial skin is of four types. For each of them only their own, individual care is suitable. And yet there are basic steps that should be followed by owners of any skin type: 1) cleansing (daily, morning and evening); 2) mask (should not be used more often 2 times a week); 3) toning (daily, always in the evening, optional in the morning); 4) Moisturizing (daily, morning and evening); 5) protection (daily in the morning): protective equipment (foundation and powder) protects the skin from the negative effects of the external environment (sun, wind, frost), and also give the skin a smooth, even look. Sometimes these stages can be combined. For example, cleansing + mask or moisturizing + protection. Let’s determine what type of skin your skin is: type 1. Dry skin. It is characterized by small pores, a very low moisture content and a dull dull shade without oily sheen. Women with this type of skin are more likely to experience a feeling of tightness, peeling, cracks. To maintain such skin in the best condition, fat-containing (locking moisture in the skin) creams and lotions are required. Alcohol should not be present in the tonic, and the mask must be moisturizing, not drying the skin (choose a mask with sesame oil, avocado oil – these are the best natural emollients). It is better to give preference to hydrogenating masks. You should not get involved in peeling, once a week will be quite enough to remove dead skin cells from the surface and not harm the lower layers of the epidermis. Type 2 Normal skin. This skin is balanced fat and moisture content. Therefore, when choosing a remedy, you should keep a balance: creams and lotions are better to choose moisture-containing, including a small amount of fat to retain moisture, but do not leave the skin feeling excess fat. Alcohol-containing tonics may be used. Masks may include particulate matter (for example, walnut shells). Type 3 Combined skin looks healthy, smooth, slightly oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin). There are signs of dryness, tightness on the cheeks and along the line of the oval face. Fits the same as normal skin. One has only to pay more attention to problem areas. I just have this type of skin, and sometimes, to avoid unpleasant sensations (especially in the winter season), I have to use several creams at the same time. On the forehead, nose and chin is better to apply a cream that does not contain fat, and on the cheeks – with fats. As for the masks – they should be on the clay and contain particles of scrub. Look for kaolin or bentonite – these are natural clays that effectively absorb fats. 4 type. Oily skin is characterized by shine, excess sebum, large pores and a tendency to the formation of acne and blackheads, so it needs special care. For example, when cleansing, it is better to choose products that include quaternium-26 (it is used to dissolve and remove excess fat from the surface of the skin). Acrylic acid copolymer may be present in the cream. It is a very effective polymer whose molecules absorb fat 10 times its own weight. Usually oily skin creams are very liquid, so they need to be applied in two stages. First, apply a thin layer of cream onto your face and neck with your fingertips. The cream is quickly absorbed. Then, you can apply another layer, not rubbing, so as not to destroy the first polymer layer that absorbs fat. When determining your skin type you need to be careful, because often your subjective feelings do not reflect the objective state of the skin. It often happens that the simple use of ordinary tap water causes an unpleasant feeling of excessive dryness of the skin, although the skin may be of a normal or combined type. Note the pore size in the T-zone area. Wrong selection of care products can cause undesirable reactions – irritation, dryness, itching.
