Skin on the face

What is essential for the skin? Cleanse, tone, nourish and moisturize.

The skin should be cleansed twice a day. Morning cleansing should be done with a gel or foam. In the evening, cleanse the skin of the face with cleansing milk, and then wash your face. This must be done daily. Moreover, after washing, you need to get your face wet, and not wipe it, so that microtrauma does not appear. You also need to tone your face every day. This is a necessary step. After all, the tonic removes the remnants of impurities and restores the acid-base balance of the skin. It is necessary to wipe the face with tonic along the massage lines. This procedure must also be carried out twice a day. Another important step is nutrition and hydration. Moisturizing provides the skin with elasticity, improves blood microcirculation, normalizes metabolic processes, and helps to better absorb nutrients. First of all, you need to drink enough clean water. It is very important. In addition, special moisturizers should be used. The most effective products are those that contain extracts of medicinal plants and algae, glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

As for nutrients, they help accelerate tissue regeneration and protect the skin. The components necessary for nutrition are amino acids, omega fatty acids, vitamins C, E, A and group B, essential oils and some minerals.

The cream should be applied 60-80 minutes before going outside in the morning and two hours before going to bed in the evening.

However, we must remember that the chest and abdomen need a more accurate and gentle cleansing. Therefore, for these parts of the body, it is better to use products with small particles.

Moisturize your body regularly. But in summer it is worth giving preference to light creams, but in winter and autumn it is better to choose natural oils or fatty creams, which include oils.

The skin should be nourished 1-3 times a week. You can choose products based on honey, oils, algae, dairy products, fruits or vegetables. It is useful to make masks and body wraps.

What else should be remembered? Massage and morning exercises are very useful. These procedures improve blood circulation, help keep blood vessels in good shape.
