Is it possible to lift at home?
Tightening the skin of the face, or lifting – one of the most popular procedures for women for … I will not even specify how much. Deep lifting – for already noticeable wrinkles, easy lifting – for a slightly tired face, as well as for prevention. Cosmetic clinics offer services for every taste and budget. But the effect of light lifting is quite possible to get at home with the help of simple means. But you remember: if there is no difference, why pay more?
Strictly speaking, lifting is not one procedure, but a whole complex of procedures. And in a sense – even a way of life. Good habits A clear oval of the face and beautiful skin can be purchased in the offices of a beautician and a plastic surgeon – for big money and not without harm to health. And you can … just not lose them. To preserve the beauty of the face as long as possible, try to develop some useful habits. First, watch how you sleep: do not allow your skin to wrinkle at night. The best option is to sleep on your back. Secondly, do not touch the skin for no reason, so as not to stretch it once again and not to carry dirt on it from your hands. Thirdly, when washing, be very careful – imagine that you are caring for a precious thing. And, of course, make it a rule for yourself to regularly perform lifting procedures. Complete cleansing Each such procedure begins with cleansing the skin. To start, make a steam bath (you can use a decoction of chamomile or calendula – at the same time clean the airway). When the pores open, use a scrub. It can be purchased at the store, and you can cook yourself. As a basis, you can use ground coffee (for oily skin), chopped oatmeal or corn flour (for dry skin). Add a few drops of honey and oil (tea tree oil, grape seed oil, olive oil will do) – and the scrub is ready. Apply it on face and neck and massage with very soft, smooth movements. Rub scrub into the skin is not necessary – it can injure her. Of course, you may be tempted to do without this stage, limiting yourself to washing. However, I do not advise to do so. The fact is that during the lifting, the skin “pulls together” a bit (actually, this is what we want to achieve). Dirt and fat, which inevitably accumulate in the pores, at the same time go inside, which is fraught with inflammation and, consequently, rashes on the skin. Under the mask of lifting The next stage – applying a tightening mask. Here, again, the choice is yours: you can buy a ready-made product (the benefit now is a huge choice), and you can make at home one of those ingredients that will be at hand. The basis for the mask can be cosmetic clay, honey, egg white, olive oil, and for aged skin – melted paraffin. They can be combined with products of plant origin, for example, cucumber, dill, banana, lemon or grape juice. It is good to add a vitamin E capsule to the mask (it can be found in the pharmacy). The mask should be kept on the face for about 20 minutes, after which it should be carefully removed using wet cotton pads. This procedure is preferably carried out regularly – two or three times a week. Beauty from a jar You can fix the result with a special cream with a lifting effect. In this case, it is impossible to do without going to the store – it is impossible to prepare such a means at home When choosing a tool, pay attention to its composition. As a rule, collagen, elastin, antioxidants are part of creams for tightening the skin of the face. Recently, funds containing algae extracts are popular. In the cosmetic shop, you will definitely want to buy a tool of instant action and get the same instant effect. But it is better to choose a cream designed for long-term care. Such a tool is, firstly, less aggressive, and secondly, the result of its use will be more resistant. Everything is in your hands. A facial massage will also help ensure a lasting effect. You can literally do it yourself, or rather with your fingers: walk lightly on the forehead (from the bottom up), on the cheeks (from the nose to the temples), on the face contour (from the chin to the forehead) – in other words, follow strictly the so-called massage lines . Before the massage, it would be nice to apply oil on the skin – either a special cosmetic or a universal olive oil. In the morning massage can be more active. Use an ice cube for it (if you have no contraindications to this procedure). For its preparation, you can use mineral water or infusion of parsley, calendula, chamomile. Alternate actions: first wipe your face with an ice cube, then rinse with warm water. It does not hurt to master the gymnastics for the face and neck. For example, such a movement: take a pencil in the mouth and “write” letters of the alphabet or numbers in the air from one to ten. Another element of the gymnastics is the careful pronunciation of various vowel sounds.
