As practice shows, no matter how many cosmetic products for skin care you are using, it is important, how to use them. Proper and timely skin care can prevent the formation of wrinkles and delay the aging process.
We’ll share with you the rules of facial skin care, hoping that you can turn back the clock.
How to properly care for the skin on the face
According to statistics, 4 out of 10 women go to bed without removing the makeup. But this step is extremely important because it prepares the skin for the effects of other cosmetic products.
So, cleaning of the face and neck should be done 2 times a day: in the morning to remove excess fat, and in the evening to clean the dust particles, and other cosmetics. Choose a cosmetic product according to your skin type. For those with oily skin the most suitable is foam or gel, and the ladies with a dry and sensitive is better to stick with the cleansing milk.
Apply the product on the face, with massage moves and leave it for about 20 seconds and wash away. To remove the mascara use a special remover: it quickly and gently dissolves the makeup without irritating the eyes at the same time.
To restore the skin after cleansing, use tonic. Choose foods with vitamin C in their composition, it will not only give the skin a feeling of freshness and renewal, but also protects it from free radicals. Rose water has anti-aging properties (you can buy in a drugstore) – one hundred percent natural product.
The key point of the program of anti-aging skin care is the use of serum. Typically, this means applying a skin benefit agent in a much greater concentration than creams and gels.
The special formula allows active ingredients to penetrate into the deeper layers of the epidermis. Serums are oil and water based and they are used to address specific problems of different skin types.
Apply a thin layer the serum product twice a day. Some anti-aging serums contain retinol, which makes the skin sensitive to the sun, so before going outside use a cream with UV filter.
Caring for the skin around the eyes
While the serum is absorbed, take care of the skin around the eyes. Contrary to the opinion of many, the usual creams and gels are not appropriate for the skin around the eyes. The skin in that area is thin and tender and the composition of a usual face cream may be too heavy for it and may provoke swelling.
Apply the cream around the eyes and very lightly distribute it on the skin. Use your fingertips to pat the area around the eyes for a minute. If you already have pronounced wrinkles, a cream will not be enough. In this case, you will need additional means like eye serum, which is applied under the cream.
Here comes facial cream again. A good quality product will make your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Note the composition: anti-aging cream should include niacinamide, retinol, hyaluronic acid, vegetable stem cells, peptide complex and MSM (a natural source of sulfur), and soothing oils such as jojoba and rosehip oil, in combination or separately.
These steps are anti-aging care basics. For best results, you need to do some additional skin care, like for example: 1-2 times a week, use the scrub and apply rejuvenating mask corresponding to your skin type.
