Facial cleansing is the basic of caring for our skin, although unfortunately little appreciated. Everything happens quickly in the 21st century. We expect immediate results. Our skin will not change overnight thanks to the magic specificity - that's for sure, but you can help the non-magic specificity by preparing the skin for its effects. It is worth knowing that effective cleansing improves the skin absorption of creams, and thus their effect.
Where to start cleansing at home? Firstly removing makeup and impurities that are deposited on our skin. Impurities from the whole day, as well as sebum, a layer of which we have on the face every morning, after night. Micellar water works best for this. These products are often rashly assessed with words - you have to rub hard to wash off the mascara. No, you don't. Instead of rubbing, gently press a swab soaked in the liquid and give it time to dissolve the cosmetic. This is the assumption of micellar fluid.
One of the very common mistakes in skin cleansing is not washing off makeup remover cosmetics. Is this a disadvantage of bad micellar lotion or make-up remover? No, absolutely not. Their task is to cleanse and dissolve pollutants. However, the same ingredients that make the micellar fluid serve as a make-up remover and cleansing gel mean that leaving it on the skin may disrupt the hydrolipodic barrier. It is worth using a tonic then. What's its action? Its task is to restore our skin to its proper pH, what means the level of acidification at which our skin feels best. In addition, the tonic effectively soothes. Bacteria and viruses that pass through the protective barrier cause inflammation. Your skin will thank you for using the tonic after cleansing your face. In addition, the application of the tonic itself is pleasantly cool - the feeling of relief is immediate.
We will also discuss the difference between a make-up remover milk and a micellar liquid. Quite a frequently asked question. In addition to removing makeup, the milk is designed to gently moisturize and its consistency is more greasy. People with naturally oily skin usually choose micellar make-up remover. It is lighter, just as effective, and leaves no greasy film. The second group - milk fans - often have dry skin. They consciously reach for the lotions, and yet they also make a mistake - they do not wash them off.
“Since it moisturizes, I will not wash the milk off my face. Let it moisturize through the night "
Milk is not cream. The slight moisturizing effect is an added value and not the main purpose of the cosmetic. Wash off the lotion with a tonic - your skin will thank you.
Once we have thoroughly cleansed our skin, we can move on to the next stage of care. Peels. Do you prefer enzyme or granular peels? We sincerely hope that the first ones. Exfoliation – what means controlled removal of the redundant layer of the epidermis refreshes the appearance of the skin. Is that it? Without an extra layer of epidermis, the creams are better absorbed. Therefore, peeling is an element of cleansing. They aim to do the same - to clean the skin of the layers lying on it, which make it difficult for care cosmetics to reach deeper.
We know two more fakes that we would like to debunk once and for all. Let us know in the comment, have you ever come across them - did you believe it or not?
- washing your face too often is not good at all
- using peels more often than indicated by the manufacturer may lead to irritation
