How to care for your face

So interesting is our nature - we are born with a different set of genes, in fact, each person is unique. This applies to everything from the size of the nose, ending with how you look at 20, 40 and 60 years.

Unrecognizably, we cannot change what has been given to us (except to spend money on plastic surgeries, but we all know that this fraud only disfigures women). We can only learn how to properly care for our appearance, in particular facial skin at home.


Your skin type is not forever

Your skin type is not forever. The skin type can change throughout life, so cosmetics should be selected based on how your skin feels and looks now. In summer, usually any type of skin produces more fat, in winter it is drier. The sebaceous glands are also affected by hormones and nutrition. For example, with the advent of menopause, the skin becomes dry, and the addition of polyunsaturated fatty acids to the diet makes dry skin normal.
Features of facial care by skin type
If you use mass-market cosmetics, check the composition of the products. Try to choose the most natural (read in this case - harmless) remedies.IMPORTANT! For oily skin, we don’t use tonics with alcohol (this is exactly what inexperienced young girls do - after all, oily skin, I really want to degrease, but this can only aggravate the problem). Also, for oily skin creams on a greasy basis and without a note of the absence of comedogenicity are contraindicated.
IMPORTANT: For dry skin, choose a mild, non-aggressive cleansing and tonic. But non-fat creams are not suitable here. Dry skin is especially important to protect from ultraviolet rays and from frost. Therefore, in the summer, do not go outside without a protective moisturizer, and in winter without oily-nutritious. Moreover, before going out, it should preferably be 30 minutes.
IMPORTANT: For combination skin, proper care of its various areas is important.


In some, the skin is naturally oily, in others it is dry and thin, it is believed that in modern conditions normal skin is very rare, more often combined - The skin can behave differently depending on the time of year and temperature and weather conditions.
We are not able to completely change our skin type - therefore, DO NOT believe the tricks of advertisers who assure you that your skin will no longer be oily from their miracle cure! But, if you choose cosmetics that suit your skin type and properly care for it, then it will look healthier and really get fatter an order of magnitude less.
So, let's figure out how to make daily skin care more effective.
We determine the type of skin
Oily skin
The skin of this type is usually thicker, the pores are clearly visible and enlarged. The skin has a greasy sheen, due to which it collects all the dirt and dust on itself - that is why oily skin often suffers from rashes and acne. The advantage is that due to the thickness and protection against overdrying, oily skin is not prone to wrinkles, so the owners of this skin type (if you learn how to properly care for it) will look young for a long time.
Dry skin
In contrast to oily dry skin type is characterized by a thin structure, transparency and matte. It is easily irritated, can peel off and be felt “tight”. It is on dry skin that wrinkles appear most quickly. It needs constant hydration and is extremely sensitive to aggressive makeup removers and hard water.
Normal skin
The moisture and fat content in the skin of this type is balanced, so it is the least problem in the care and looks young for a long time. But this does not mean that it does not need to be taken care of at all, just select all the means for normal skin, there will be a pH there.
Combination skin
With this type of skin, the T-zone is usually like oily skin, in the eye, on the temples and chin there may be dry skin. The skin may look heterogeneous, be sensitive to cosmetics - you need to choose care products very carefully.

In order for the skin to be protected from the influence of the environment and to look perfect, you need to clean it, the first to tone, the second to tone, and the third to moisturize / nourish. All this facial treatment can be done at home.All these actions must be performed in the morning and in the evening, with the only difference being that in the morning - after cleansing and toning, we moisturize the skin, and in the evening - we nourish. Do not think that in the morning you can do without the first two points and just start applying cosmetics to the cream (or without it!).
After all, while we sleep, the sebaceous glands also work, we rub our faces on the pillow, and collect dust and bacteria on it, which with pleasure will make you acne and acne if you do not carefully carry out all morning procedures. Means for these care processes need to be selected according to the type of skin (have you already decided on it in the previous paragraph?).


How to apply the cream

Any type of skin should not be rubbed heavily during cleansing or toning, all movements should be light and smooth. First you need to wash yourself with warm water, then you can slightly reduce the temperature - we do not injure the skin with ice water.After all, the temperature promotes the opening of pores in warm water - they open easier and you can cleanse the skin much better.
The cream should be applied with patting soft movements (do not rub or rub!), In certain directions:
on the forehead: with both hands towards the temples, from the bottom up;
areas around the eyes: on the eyelid from the nose to the corners of the eyes, under the eyes - in the opposite direction with both hands simultaneously;
on the cheeks: from the nose to the temples;
around the lips: on the chin - from the center in both directions, from above - from the corners of the mouth to the bases of the wings of the nose;
on the neck: first in the middle, then gently rub in both directions on the side surfaces.

Beautician's advice

Do not wash yourself with tap water!
Ordinary tap water can be tough - it contains salts of magnesium and calcium, which, with prolonged use, dry the skin. This is especially dangerous for dry skin, it can begin to peel off, although all the care products were chosen correctly by you.
In order to soften the water, boil it and add a quarter teaspoon of soda (you can choose half a teaspoon of borax, one tablespoon of glycerin or lemon juice for oily skin). If the skin is too sensitive, boiled water is well diluted in half with milk (temperature 24-25C).
