SKIN CARE FOR YOUR FACE
Good routine skin care can slow the natural signs of aging and may prevent skin problems like acne, dryness, eczema, and sunburn. As you get older, your skin naturally becomes thinner, more fragile because it produces fewer natural oils, making it more susceptible to damage.
By adopting a few simple habits of skin care, you can have healthy and beautiful skin for many more years:
* Hydrated skin of any age always looks much better than dehydrated skin, and your skin can be fully hydrated with just three or four good quality products.
* Busy people often do not have time, or a huge budget to constantly be going to the beauty parlor, which is no longer essential. What matters is that the key treatments are done with constancy.
* We should avoid useless products that we don’t really know what they are or how they should be used. Often, we use new products for a few days at first, then forget about them, leaving half the container on the shelf, which is a waste of money.
* In addition to daily care it is advisable to follow a weekly treatment, such as peels and masks, with monthly treatments like deeper peels and/or facials.
* A good daily routine is the same for all skin types, the only difference depending on skin type, is the product and how it is used.
SKIN CARE BY SKIN TYPES
It is natural that over the years the skin undergoes some changes and lose its elasticity, firmness and smoothness. This can happen to younger people if they do not provide the skin with the care it needs. If you can not identify your skin type, you can go to a dermatologist who will advise you and indicate the products that are most appropriate for you.
Remember that skin care is not just concerned with the type of skin you have and creams you may use, but there are hundreds of factors that may be considered, ranging from heredity to the spiritual.
• Dry Skin
Dull skin with rough appearance and tendency towards flaking, tends to wrinkle more easily than oily skin.
The sun and air pollution contributing to these effects can become serious. Dry skin has the most need for focused care. In the morning it is necessary to treat this type of skin with a moisturizer and a nourishing cream night.
• Sensitive skin
This skin is delicate, slightly dry, easily irritated and prone to allergic reactions from cosmetics, perfumes and detergents. Atmospheric and climate changes with harsh cosmetics may cause irritation, leaving skin red and sometimes with visible blood vessels.
• Normal skin
This skin has a smooth texture, no blackheads or open pores. No greasy or dry areas. People with this skin type need only a basic beauty regimen to maintain the natural balance. But even the beauty of this type of skin, without adequate care, does not last long.
• Combination Skin
This type of skin consists of dry and oily areas, so you must perform a routine of care that takes into account both aspects: moisturize dry area and reduce sebum in the slightly more oily areas.
• Oily skin
This skin is characterized by overproduction of sebum and oils resulting in blackheads, open pores, blackheads and pimples. Oily skin is especially common during adolescence when hormonal changes promote this overproduction.
The advantage of this is that skin stays young longer.
This skin requires special care with cleansers, lotions and creams adapted to this type of skin and to prevent the accumulation of impurities.
NOTE: For any facial cleansing process to be truly effective, it is advisable to choose a lotion that does not have too many aggregates, as some components could make the skin lose lipids and water, becoming too dry. This is the case of products containing surfactants.
