The rules of daily facial skin care do not provide for the constant use of scrubs. This is undesirable from the point of view of the functioning of the skin. The natural exfoliation process is programmed in the skin. Therefore, it is enough to support these processes normally.
In order not to harm the skin, you need to use scrubs with small spherical or hemispherical particles. Means are applied in a circular motion, which helps to gently eliminate dead skin cells of the epidermis. Coarse scrub particles can injure and scratch the skin. Some scrubs contain particles that dissolve during application. Such cleansing is more effective due to the enzymes contained in the scrub.
Oily skin care for every day and the use of scrubs should be agreed with a cosmetologist. For example, if there are purulent rashes on the skin, the scrub will only increase inflammation and lead to the spread of infection.
How to avoid age spots?
In the issue of prevention of age spots, the order of daily skin care and protection of the epidermis from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation is important.
Means for daily skin care are always creams with an SPF factor. Means must be used all year round on open areas of the body. In the summer heat, it is recommended to use SPF products above 30, in other months – creams with an SPF of at least 25.
During the period of active sun, products with retinol and vitamin A should be excluded from the Beauty cosmetic bag. They provoke redness and irritation of the skin.
Why is it necessary to use serums?
Daily skin care includes the use of serums. But today they remain a mysterious remedy for many. The range of possibilities of serums is huge:
- moisturizing and nourishing the skin
- fight acne and blemishes
- elimination of signs of wilting, etc.
The serum contains a concentrate of active substances that can solve many skin problems. The main feature of the serum is that the depth of penetration of its components is much greater than that of any cream.
Daily skin care products differ in their action:
Moisturizing. Eliminate inflammation on the skin. These serums are essential for sensitive and dehydrated skin. They will be especially useful in hot weather, when the skin suffers from a lack of moisture. As a rule, moisturizing serums contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin. They should be applied 2 times a day.
Soothing. Suitable for sensitive skin. Serums contain herbal extracts, niacinamide and other active substances.
Exfoliating. Eliminate dead cells of the epidermis. Serums are made on the basis of lactic, salicylic and other acids. They are used only in the evening.
Anti-aging. Tighten the skin, eliminate flabbiness and wrinkles. Serums contain retinol, vitamin C, antioxidants.
When should you start using anti-aging products?
Daily skin care at home largely depends on age. But the question arises – when to start using anti-aging cosmetics? You need to take care of the youth and beauty of the skin from an early age. The first “bell” to the use of anti-age cosmetics is the appearance of creases and loss of elasticity.
Often the aging process starts already at the age of 25. This does not mean that the skin will suddenly lose its fresh look and become covered with wrinkles. Aging is a gradual long process and depends on the individual characteristics of the organism. But the aging process is easier to delay than to deal with deep age-related changes.
The rules of daily skin care are individual for everyone. There is no universal number to start using anti-aging care. Daily facial skin care after 25 should be based on the recommendations of a cosmetologist. The main advice of a cosmetologist for skin care after 35 years is the use of products aimed at moisturizing, protecting against ultraviolet radiation and maintaining tone.
If you prematurely use anti-aging creams because of the fear of “aging prematurely”, then these procedures will be useless. Anti-aging cosmetics work where its work is needed. If the skin is young, the anti-age cream will nourish and moisturize the skin, but will not perform its direct functions. Anti-aging cosmetics should be applied according to indications and always in a timely manner.
Daily skin care after 35 should not be chosen independently. The cosmetologist will prescribe products that are best suited for your age and skin condition.
