The skin has the most important protection function and stands up against environmental influence. The skin loses its elasticity, appears to be disposed to external factors and needs our care in time.
The basic skin care that consists of cleansing and moisturization is the key to maintaining its health.
The face and body skin have different acid values (pH skin level) and demand various approaches in care. Thus, the beauty products are being elaborated in categories depending on the skin needs.
The pH skin level of a healthy person ranges from 3 to 7. But, this level changes according to a skin type:
Cleansing is the topmost step in skin care which makes the skin more elastic and auroral.
The water should be warm while cleansing, that’s the reason why the warm water cleanses the skin of redundant sebum. As the hot water gets rid of extra sebum, it washes the important skin protection layer off that leads to dryness.
Normal water isn’t able to wash off the mud and dead cells. So, it’s important to use specific beauty products for cleansing depending on the skin needs.
Facial cleanser should match your skin type as the wrong product can cause irritation and allergy: oily and combined skin need deep cleansing, meanwhile dry skin – delicate one.
Chlorinated water leads to skin stress and breaks its protective layer while cleansing. Therefore, it’s better to use filtered water for face wash, it won’t breach the protective skin function.
The toner restores the pH-balance after washing, prepares the skin for further care and completes the skin cleansing process.
It’s important to use a scrubbing or peeling 1-2 times per week in order to boost the recovery process and deep skin cleansing from dead cells.
Acid exfoliation is an effective way to restore the skin. Acids penetrate into the deep skin layers and effectively remove dead skin cells improving its condition significantly. Acids in cosmetic products have a wide range of action and perform an important role of effective renewal and retention of moisture in the skin.
The skin reduces production of the collagen and hyaluronic acid over time, which are responsible for the elasticity of the skin and its healthy color. It evokes the loss of skin elasticity and emergence of wrinkles. In the case when the skin loses a large amount of moisture, it becomes dehydrated. The reasons may be external (weather, dry air) as well as internal factors (weakening of the protective skin layer). Therefore, the skin needs to be restored, protected and nourished.
Moisturizing is the next step of basic care that restores the pH skin balance and helps to strengthen its protective properties. Proper hydration is the key to maintaining a healthy skin and prolonging its youth. Every time after cleansing you should moisturize the skin with products that match its type and needs.
You should choose creams and lipsticks with an SPF that blocks the sunlight rays’ effect. Therefore, you need to protect yourself from the sun not only on vacation, but also daily regardless of sunny or cloudy weather. Tender skin care every day is the best way to express selfcare without much effort. At least twice a day go to the bathroom and take a little care trip.
