Daily care for the skin

Every woman seeks to preserve its charm, and each does it differently. But for some reason, not everyone is able to spend a few minutes on the 4 stages of daily facial care. You can constantly experiment with your hair, it is possible to spend money on expensive clothes and make-up artist consultations.

The first signs of skin aging (wrinkles around the eyes, around the mouth, on the neck) often remain to us unseen. By the age of thirty there is an alarm and an unwillingness to accept that time takes its toll. "We need to do something!" we assure ourselves, but often somehow postponed care for your skin and coniecto only when the color becomes faded, deep wrinkles, loose skin droops, not so clearly follows the outline of the face needs lifting. And we run to the beautician with the hope that he, as a magician, in a moment, will bring back the youth and make us beautiful. Yes, the beauticians can do a lot, but that does not negate the need for daily home care for skin. It consists of 4 stages:

Stage 1 - Cleansing

Clean the face you need in the morning and evening. Morning is preparing the face for makeup application, night - night cream. When cleaning removed dead scales of the Horny layer of the skin, stale sebum and bacterial products. Evening cleansing removes makeup residue and dirt that got on the face during the day, the treated skin will be ready for the maximum perception of a night cream.

When washing any type of skin it is not recommended to use soap - it's too strong degreasing it, after having dryness and irritation, too much soap tightens skin pores, cleaning them well enough. In addition, the soap is a lye, it disrupts the normal acidity of the surface of the skin, breaks lipid (fat) barrier of the skin, prevent the reproduction of her pathogens.

The face should be cleaned with gels, mousses, milks. They almost do not disrupt the normal acidity of the skin, deeply penetrate into the pores, well-dissolved solid particles of cosmetics.

Step 2 - Toning

After cleaning the face is necessary to wipe it with tonic (lotion). Toning is an important moment of daily care face care, all skin type, it should be done after each cleansing, twice a day, morning and evening. Wrong opinion that the tonic you need to wipe only oily skin. And that, the more the alcohol content the better. Even if the surface of the face is very oily, you should prefer non-alcoholic tonics. Alcohol not only dry out normal to dry skin, but also enhances the activity of the sebaceous glands oily skin. Dry skin also need to be handled with toner after cleansing, the only difference is that a tonic should be prescribed for this skin type.

Step 3 - Hydration and protection

Day cream apply in the morning or during the day under makeup, and without it, about half an hour before going outside. It should be applied not only on face but also neck.

The film, appearing on the skin after cream application, performs a protective function, underneath the skin suffers less from meteorological environmental factors, dust and dirt. In addition, day cream prevents the evaporation of water from the skin, helps to maintain a sufficient level of moisturizing.

In day creams usually contain different active ingredients. Depending on their content and the ratio of different day creams are applied for different skin types at different times of the year. In the summer you should use day creams that contain sunscreens - substances that reflect or absorb UV radiation. They will protect the face from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation, leading to "photoaging" of the skin.

Stage 4 - Food

In the evening, after cleansing and toning, apply the night cream. Night creams are classified as "nutritional". They are chosen in accordance with the type and condition of the skin.

Night cream is applied 1-2 hours before sleep; if he's not completely soaked, you should blot with a napkin. As with the day cream, it is applied not only on face but also on neck and décolleté.

Never apply a nourishing cream on the areas around the eyes. Night creams are too oily, and the consistency is too "heavy" for this delicate region.

All motion, like cleansing, toning of the face and when applying creams and masks must be manufactured in the direction of the lines of least stretching of the skin from the midline of the face to aural shells. Wipe the face should only blotter movements, without stretching the skin.

To complement these basic steps of skin care can masks, mechanical (scrubs) and chemical peels, etc. But need to use them every day - no.

Special attention every day require the skin around the eyes is the most delicate and sensitive, and I have few sebaceous glands, it is characterized by great elongation. The eyelids are easily formed swellings, first of all there are wrinkles. Applying makeup and removing it tiring and irritating to the skin around the eyes. Therefore, the cosmetics applied to this area should be of the highest quality.

Eye creams are particularly light consistency and absorbed well. They should be applied morning and evening after cleaning the eyelids.

Do not use on eyelids cream. For the skin around the eyes, use only a specially created for this zone means-tested ophthalmologic control.

Apply and remove makeup from the eyelids carefully, keeping the direction of least stretching of the skin (eye movement should be directed toward the nose and above the eye towards the temple).

Clean the eyelids with the help of special gels and lotions. Protect the eyelid skin from the bright sun, choose tools with ultraviolet filters.

Lip care

Lip skin is very thin, always open to the influence of wind, sun, frost and dry air. There are no sebaceous glands, so it needs daily hydration and nutrition. Constant contraction of facial muscles of the mouth contributes to the formation of wrinkles around the lips.

At night and when you don't apply makeup, use special means for care of lip skin.

Pay attention to your lipstick contain moisturizing and nourishing components, vitamins and UV filters. As a rule, meet these requirements and lipstick of reputable firms, and they are quite expensive. But remember that lipstick is not only on your lips throughout the day - most of it you consumed, so a cheap lipstick to use is not worth it.

It can be maintained with the same tools, which are used to treat the face: clean cleansing milk, wipe with toner and apply an appropriate time of day cream. Some cosmetics manufacturers produce special products for the neck. They differ in that they do not leave marks on clothes.
