If you want your face to be always as fresh and healthy as the Hollywood actors, you’ll have to stand in front of the mirror a little longer than usual. Here are 6 basic rules of skincare that will be useful not only for your girlfriend.
Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells
First, wash your face with a light cleaner to get rid of deep contaminants, otherwise, the remedy for removing dead skin particles will not work. Apply a facial scrub in a circular motion, because a rough rubbing irritates the skin and can cause microcracks. It’s better to do this in the shower, because the steam from the hot water helps to soften the skin. At first, perform the procedure once a week, so that your skin gets used to light peeling and doesn’t react to this with irritation. Then go to 2-3 times a week to make the skin look smooth and healthy.
Don’t Use an Ordinary Soap
“Wash with a light cleanser, it doesn’t deprive the skin of moisture,” – advises a dermatologist from Rhode Island Carolyn Chang. If you have an oily skin and often acne, buy a cleanser that contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide so that it absorbs oils and relieves rashes.
Every Day Use a Skin Lotion
If your skin is not perfect, you need to moisturize it every day. The correctly selected lotion will help to keep the skin clean and smooth out the manifestations of old age (sagging, wrinkles and uneven color). Well suited lotions with almond oil or an extract of an oil tree, ingredients that moisturize, soften, protect and nourish.
Prepare Your Face for Shaving
The quality of shaving depends on the preparatory work. Follow these three rules:
– Start with washing under a warm shower;
– Then, generously apply a quality pre-shaving oil to soften the skin and prepare the hairs to remove;
– Finally, apply a quality shaving cream directly over the oil and carefully rub it into the beard area.
Take Seriously About Choosing a Razor
The electric shaver is suitable for most skin types. But if you are a patient esthete with insensitive skin, you can use a dangerous razor with quality products before and after shaving, just do not cut yourself. If your hand can tremble, buy a traditional 3 or 5-blade razor that will ensure a smooth shave with minimal risk of cuts.
Avoid Alcohol Lotions After Shaving
The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you are pouring on it, so avoid the classic alcohol lotions that dry the skin. New fluids, balms and gels that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as oil tree extract and aloe, work better and softer.
