Take these points for rules that you must follow as regularly as brushing your teeth and washing your hands. Cosmetics are created in order to emphasize beauty and hide small imperfections, and not to mask the condition of your skin. Therefore, it is important to choose the right care products and use them every day. Also, for prevention, it is recommended to use masks and peeling once every 1-2 weeks.
Facial skin should be cleaned twice a day.
At night, the skin goes through the stages of regeneration, its cells divide eight times faster.
In the morning, sweat, the secretion of the sebaceous glands and toxins that need to be washed off accumulate. At the end of the day, you should rid your face of the load of cosmetics and accumulated dirt.
Cleansing is the first and main action of self-care, which many people do wrong. The steps for cleansing the skin of the face need to be performed in a specific sequence:
Stage 1: makeup removal.
If you have makeup on your face, then first you need to get rid of it. By mistake, women of different ages remove makeup, immediately washing with gel. But it’s more correct to use makeup remover: micellar water, lotion or micellar oil. Two-phase lotion is especially good for any type of cosmetics. Apply the product in a small amount on a cotton pad, gently wipe areas of the face along the massage lines. If you have run out of product, you can use olive oil.
Stage 2: washing
. After you get rid of makeup, it’s time to move on to washing. Cleaning products should be chosen carefully, considering the type of your skin.
Owners of dry and combined epidermis are recommended to use products that do not contain alcohol and milk, for example, Lancôme Galatée Confort milk. For oily skin, you can apply gels and foams, for example, Avene Cleanance. Hypoallergenic products like Kiehl’s Centella Skin-Calming Facial Cleanser will take care of sensitive skin types.
