It is strange to hear some women say that the use of funds for the skin only worsen her condition. Opponents of cosmetic skin care is considered, it is best to "leave the person alone." This, in their opinion, the most "environmentally friendly" way.
Interestingly, the main argument of opponents of cosmetics is that, say, our grandmother does not use and had gorgeous skin. This is not quite true - and our grandmothers and great-grandmothers used various natural "skin improvers" - herbal infusions, masks from the fermented milk products, juices wipe vegetables and berries, etc. Do not forget that the living conditions in the last decade, not to mention the centuries, changed radically and, unfortunately, not for the better.
Scientists have found that over the past 20 years the rate of skin aging in women has increased several times. More and more young women are faced with the problem of dry skin, early wrinkles, the appearance of age spots. In addition, modern products that have been used previously as cosmetics, lost much of its medicinal properties. Therefore, in modern cosmetic oils and extracts are used instead of decoctions and infusions.
So what to look for when choosing a cosmetic skin care face? First of all, we must remember that with age, the elasticity of all skin decreases. One should not forget that the health of the skin - is the health of its cells, so it is best to choose cosmetics that affect the deeper layers of the skin, promoting healing and good growth of its cells.
The structure of a good set of cosmetic products must include:
to restore and maintain the acid-base balance;
(they are detected on the currently 21), as building components skin proteins collagen and elastin;
Providing protection to the skin, filling it with energy, and accelerate the construction of skin cells;
It is a structural part of the majority of the molecules of the skin;
- Components of DNA molecules;
plant extracts, vegetable oils
Note that as represented by
part of the foundations
cosmetics. Most manufacturers its hide while the base is often a source of allergic reactions.
We continue to study the labels of cosmetic products. From all written an ordinary person can not read only some of the components, and they cause fear. But the devil is not so bad ...
. They do not allow the layers to delaminate means providing uniformity of structure. Choosing the means which correspond to maximum emulsifiers skin structure.
. These fats are responsible for the perception of a cosmetic product skin. If the cream or, say, milk to remove makeup clog the skin to blame, most likely substandard emollients.
. As much as we would like to see the inscription on the box about their absence! But, alas, this is not possible, as preservatives are responsible for the protection of funds from microorganisms. And if there were no preservatives in cosmetics, we would be at the disposal of only a few days to take advantage of them. But remember: the fewer preservatives in the composition of funds, the less its shelf life and lower the risk of an allergic reaction.
. Most cosmetic products unfortunately contain artificial colors. The result of their use is predictable. Choose those funds, which contain natural dyes.
. Some of the components that make up cosmetics, have an unpleasant odor. To you and not to faint, barely opening a jar or tube, manufacturers add in the cream flavoring. However, some manufacturers try so hard to please the customers, that the concentration of perfume is able to knock down. Conclusion: The cosmetics should be light, airy scent.
Now a little more about the desired composition of cosmetic products
Means for washing
. If you think that washing with mild soap does not bring any harm, forget it. "Lumpy" soap, even a very expensive and highly publicized, dries the skin, destroying the hydro-lipid film on its surface. To protect from this are called cleanser. But if after their use, you still feel dry and taut skin, change the manufacturer. After applying the cleanser on the skin should not occur irritation and increase skin sensitivity. Some women have these unwanted effects blamed on the problematic nature of their skin, but the blame for this cosmetic product or a wrong selection.
If you got oily skin, do not rush to believe the assertions that such a skin bar soaps sure I do not hurt. It is better to pay attention to the correct selection of cleanser. Menthol in its composition will give a feeling of freshness and bean extracts, ivy, sunflower and olive oil provide the performance of the main tasks: to normalize the hypersecretion of the sebaceous glands. Means for oily skin should have a mild effect, because defending himself from aggressive skin strengthens the sebaceous and sweat glands, making useless treatments.
If your cleanser contains oxygen, can congratulate themselves: your skin will receive invaluable care. Choose funds whose main task - to dissolve dead skin cells and wash them, and not act like sandpaper.
This recommendation is fully in line with the selection and
Scrub the skin
. The surface layer of skin, the epidermis, is updated every 7-10 days. Washing, even with a good cosmetic products are not able to remove the top layer of dead skin, under which over time will begin to breed bacteria. Use a scrub can cope with this task. Make sure that the membership as an abrasive scrub with natural ingredients such as olive pits. Even better, the manufacturer indicates that the crushed bones are rounded, which will provide the most gentle on the skin.
The structure of a good scrub should contain fruit acids responsible for exfoliation, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory effect, antioxidant effect on the skin. Vitamin E is composed of a scrub will facilitate the removal of toxins from the skin cells.
For cleaning skin is incomplete without the use of
. Its main task - to remove the remains of cosmetics. It would be great if your toner will have a refreshing, protective, moisturizing effect, and can make the skin smooth and provide it with power. Depending on the type of skin tonic must contain: for dry and sensitive skin - allantoin, vitamins B5, C, for oily skin - zinc, witch hazel, provitamin B5, vitamin C.
Creams for day care.
There is a common misconception that light cream to be used for oily skin and greasy cream - for dry. Bold Cream contains nutrients no more than a modern light cream or emulsion. This cream is absorbed so much longer, heavier and perceived skin at sufficiently frequent use of fat cream is great risk of "overfeeding" skin.
However, fat cream has an undeniable advantage: it perfectly protects the skin in a strong frost. If you like your fat cream, do not forget that it is imperative to give the skin to absorb the amount of cream, which she needed, and then remove the remains of a napkin. Do not use greasy creams too often - the skin gets tired of them. Do not use greasy creams for night care at the same time and for the day, choose one thing.
