Almost everyone dreams of beautiful skin. We are ready to invest a huge amount of effort, time, and money to achieve this dream, visit cosmetologists and plastic surgeons, try various procedures, buy expensive creams - just to achieve the ideal. But sometimes it turns out that in order for our skin to look good, it is enough just to take a few completely simple steps.
How to properly care for your face
For any skin type, choose natural skincare products and a gentle cleanser that is comfortable for you. There is a mini facial treatment program that is the same for all people, regardless of skin type and age. It includes 4 mandatory points:
- Sun Protection
It is necessary to cleanse the skin in the morning and in the evening. Cleansing is the first and main step in self-care, which many do incorrectly, for example, removing cosmetics, washing with gel. Cleanser and make-up remover are two different products with different tasks. Micellar water or oil, special lotion, etc. are suitable for removing makeup. After you've got rid of your makeup, you can move on to washing your face. And here it is worth choosing a product carefully, focusing on your skin type. For dry and combination skin owners, it is recommended to use alcohol-free products. For oily skin, you can use mousses and cleansing gels. For sensitive skin, hypoallergenic products are suitable.
The next step after cleansing is toning, which allows you to restore the pH of the skin after washing, neutralize the effect of cleansers and prepare the skin for applying a moisturizer. It is necessary to wipe the face with a tonic both in the morning and in the evening immediately after cleansing. You cannot ignore the tonic, because toning helps the comfortable assimilation of subsequent care and without it, the effectiveness of all beauty procedures decreases.
The basic care is applied twice a day. Immediately after toning, eye care is applied, for example, an eye cream with vitamin E and beneficial acids. After that, the main face cream is applied. In the morning, 15-30 minutes before applying makeup, so that it has time to be completely absorbed. In the evening, at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
Moisturizing is a very important point in personal care because it is thanks to moisture that our skin looks fresh and healthy. It is necessary to moisturize any type of skin in the morning and in the evening because a lack of moisture leads to dry skin, loss of elasticity and firmness, and, as a result, the premature appearance of wrinkles. When caring for your face, do not forget to apply cosmetics to your neck and décolleté.
The cream should be chosen according to the individual needs of the skin. It should be remembered that hydration and nutrition do not exist one without the other. At temperatures above +7, we moisturize the skin in the morning and nourish it in the evening. At temperatures below + 7, vice versa. In autumn, it is recommended to switch to more saturated, fatty, and dense textures, in summer, on the contrary, to gel and light ones.
This treatment step is optional and includes various masks and serums. Serums are best used as a cycle and applied in the evening before the main treatment.
Vitamin and moisturizing serums are recommended to be added in the off-season when the skin adjusts to the vagaries of the weather, mushrooms as well as after exertion, stress, and air travel. For example, Instasikncare serum has a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and lifting effect.
5. Sun protection
SPF is not a seasonal product, but a year-round product. Ultraviolet light has a destructive effect on the skin, so SPF is needed for everyone who does not want to age ahead of time. Pay attention to the presence of SPF in daycare. For spring-summer, choose a product with a protection factor of at least 30. In the range of body cosmetics, you can find a lightweight sunscreen with an anti-aging effect, which can be applied to the skin as a second layer after the main care if necessary.
It is necessary to understand that regular home facial care and the right approach to business are the main secrets of perfect and healthy skin.
