How to take care of your skin?
We all dream of a beautiful, radiant skin without acne, pallor and wrinkles. We envy women who may not use corrector and a ton of base. They probably got this opportunity thanks to their genes. If you are so unlucky, you should focus on proper skin care.
However, before you start using a very expensive cream, think about whether you are making one of the most popular cosmetic mistakes in facial care. Facial Cleansing A thorough facial cleansing at the end of the day is necessary. Not only dust accumulates on its surface (yes, yes!), But also bacteria and microbes, which, in combination with cosmetics, are responsible for most skin irritations. If you want to enjoy impeccable complexion, you should first cleanse your face before going to bed. During sleep, our skin regenerates and breathes, and clogged pores effectively prevent it. Micellar makeup remover, face wash gel, running water, tonic and night cream – this is the absolute minimum. To pores do not clog, the skin must be cleaned.
Number of cosmetics If the label says “Apply 1-2 drops to the face”, this means 1-2 drops, not 15. Unfortunately, most of us think that the more cream / ointment / serum / concealer we put on face, the better effect we achieve. But above all, you are wasting your cosmetics. Secondly, you can irritate the skin and block the pores. In the case of day / night cream, it is enough to apply a portion corresponding to a 5-ruble coin. Serum – 2−3 drops. Make-up remover milk: a portion corresponding to a 5-ruble coin. Preparing for makeup What is the cosmetic product you apply first, and which last – is of great importance. Due to this, the product can be absorbed, do not roll on the skin and take good care of the face. After the morning face cleansing (yes, after the night you should also do this) we apply the remedies in the following order: tonic, serum, moisturizing cream, cream with filter – protective (if it does not contain a base). Only after that you can apply makeup. Spend cosmetics sparingly, do not overdo it.
Waiver of sunscreen If you think that sunscreen should be used only when you plan to visit a tanning salon or sunbathe on the beach, you are mistaken. The skin is exposed to the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays almost always when the sun shines. Refusal of SPF cream leads to rapid aging of the skin and unsightly discoloration. It is important to apply it all over the face, including the hairline. Cheeks and nose deserve special attention. Impatience You buy a new cosmetic, apply it several times on the skin and throw it into a corner, because you do not see the results? Most products should be used for 6–12 weeks to fully evaluate the effect. Moreover, frequent changes in makeup may irritate the skin. For example, it will become very dry or, on the contrary, too fat. Spots or unhealthy color may appear. Do not miss the neck. The skin here is more delicate. Therefore, it requires equally thorough (if not more thorough) care. All cosmetic procedures that you do on the face should also be applied to the skin of the neck and decollete. The neck should also be cleaned, moisturized and protected from the sun. Pharmacies and stores sell special cosmetics designed for the skin on the neck. Do not forget to always carefully care for her – she does not like friction. Remember the neck, she also needs care.
Washing the face The skin on the face does not like to wash water. A few minutes of contact with water significantly dries the skin, making it red and susceptible to infection. The lipid barrier, which naturally appears on the face, is designed to protect it from the harmful effects of external factors. It is recommended to use special means for washing. An inappropriate method of dealing with acne. Whenever a pimple appears on your skin, do you immediately treat it with all the acne treatments you have at home? First of all, an improperly selected cosmetic can cause redness and peeling of the skin. Secondly, the use of multiple drugs at the same time can damage the pimple, if the substances interact. If you have acne on your skin, you should contact a dermatologist, who will find the cause of the disease and prescribe the appropriate medication. If acne appears from time to time, limit yourself to a single cosmetic that reduces imperfections. And most importantly: do not squeeze anything! Makeup brushes need to be washed periodically!
Dirty brushes and expired cosmetics. Not many of us think of cosmetic accessories, which after several uses become a habitat for bacteria. Brushes should be washed every few days under running water, using a mild shampoo, for example, children.
