Saving face: six steps to perfect skin
 Have you noticed that manicures, pedicures, and haircuts are included in your schedule with regular consistency. But whether you are applying to your skin? Regular washing and cleaning face from make-up before going to bed - this is the beginning, but a weekly deep cleansing is an essential condition in order to make your skin look flawless, and you feel comfortable. We asked an expert on skin care Lia Schorr from Manhattan (Lia Schorr) to give us some tips on how to treat and purify the skin to prepare it for the change of season.

Step 1: Cleanse

Clean the face of gentle liquid cleanser. "Soap is not only dries the skin - it is unhygienic," - she says - "the dirt from the hands is still on his face." Squeeze your cleanser on a cotton cloth, then apply to the face (your hand is still not clean enough). Make sure to rinse your face with lukewarm water because hot water expands the capillaries and harms the skin.

  Step 2: Tonic Lotion

In ancient times, tonics were hard and rough skin. But now there are many tonics and lotions, which are very delicate in structure and are intended to preserve the natural balance of the skin. Schorr (Schorr) recommends to apply product to face and neck after using the cleanser. It removes detergent residues and restores the pH balance of the skin. For oily or combination skin, you can use the tonic or astringent lotions with more structure. For people with oily skin should look for ingredients, which include hazelnuts. Indeed, it dries, but oily skin needs it.

Step 3: Exfoliate

The purpose of the soft exfoliating is to remove dead skin cells that clog pores. Moreover, the skin surface smoothed and cosmetics will be absorbed evenly. But do not use too rough exfoliating agent, says Schorr (Schorr). Look very gentle scrubs. Scrubs, which contain peanut shells or apricot seeds can damage the skin, because of their rough edges, and may cause microscopic cracks. Never use a sponge for the face, says Schorr (Schorr). "Your face - not sex, and it should not be cleared for him. Deep exfoliation removes only the new, healthy cells."

Step 4: Steaming

Gently steamed face once a week for 5 - 10 minutes as part of the ritual of deep cleaning of the skin. Sprinkle a handful of daisies in a pot with water and put to boil. After a few minutes, remove from heat and cool slightly. When the broth is cool enough so that the steam does not burn your skin, tie your hair with a towel and place a person under par.

Step 5: Recovery

Face masks are used to repair and seal skin. If you have oily skin, the best option - a clay mask. Moisturizing gel or cream mask suitable for dry and sensitive skin. If you have combination skin, apply a mud mask on the T-zone, namely the center of the forehead, nose, chin and cheeks middle. To play at home spa, 2 dab a cotton swab in rose water and place on eyelids, at the time, until the mask dries. Schorr (Schorr) recommends testing a mask on his leg before to apply it on the face, to make sure that it will not cause you an allergic reaction.

Step 6: Moisturize

Regular skin hydration is necessary to maintain her youth and health. Another very important reason to use a daily moisturizer - protection from the damaging effects of sunlight. Moisturizers should be used every morning and night for maximum results. (Even oily skin needs a certain kind of moisturizer. Just make sure that it suits you and does not clog pores). Night time - the best for the recovery and use of anti-aging creams and anti-wrinkle. During the day, make sure you use a moisturizer that contains SPF, at least 15.
