Why skin dries so: features of spring care
After a long winter, the skin of the face looks tired. Many people are also worried about excessive dryness and flaking of not only the skin of the face, but also the hands, and especially the legs in the area from the knee to the ankle. Regardless of age and type of skin, she needs constant care, especially in the offseason.
It is still cold: focus on gentle procedures
The structure of the skin and its protective film over the winter and so destroyed. And we exacerbate the problem of exfoliating scrubs, hot water and aggressive gels and soap. Also, excessive dryness of the skin leads to a deficiency of vitamins and trace elements, an unbalanced diet and a lack of fluid in the body. There are no severe frosts, but until the weather has fully recovered, cosmetologists recommend using gentle gels, peeling or scrubbing should be performed no more than once every 2 weeks and increase fluid intake (in the absence of edema, heart and kidney problems).
Excessive dryness of the skin will help reduce the procedure of oiling: this can be done by a massage therapist and you yourself after taking a shower or bath. Special cosmetic oils – coconut, grape seed oil, sesame, etc. Today available in pharmacies and supermarkets. For oily skin, agents containing calendula, yarrow or herbal remedies will help reduce the risk of inflammation.
Tired skin – massage, natural juices and vitamins
As already mentioned, to replenish the lack of fluid in the body with the benefit of the skin can be clean drinking water, green tea and fresh juices. If the air in the living room is too dry, then you should think about purchasing a humidifier and more frequent wet cleaning. Vitamins A, C and E will help freshen the skin of your face: choose a care product with these vitamins. And also include in the diet more fish, herbs, liver and vegetable oils. Massage will help to tone up and “invigorate” the skin: from light pats to the floor of the face while applying the cream to a professional massage of the face and body.
It is better not to spare time and means and consult a specialist, because only a professional knows how to properly disperse lymph, which movements tone up the skin and smooth wrinkles, and which, on the contrary, can injure. At home, it is better to arm yourself with day and night tonics: grapefruit and cedar needles are especially good for this skin. You can also narrow enlarged pores, improve skin elasticity and remove puffiness under the eyes with ice: you can freeze both clean drinking water and herbal teas. However, you should gently and briefly wipe your face with ice for a few seconds. And with rosacea, acne, inflammatory processes on the skin, etc. such a procedure can not be done.
Charging for the face: how to maintain muscle elasticity
In addition to a balanced diet, skin care products, it is important to train the muscles of the face. This will help fight the emergence of a second chin (of course it is important not to overeat or gain weight), the deformation of other facial muscles and the appearance of wrinkles. After waking up, you can start with a small charge: strain the back of your head and shoulders, trying to look at your toes, stretching your neck forward and tilting your head.
Also, when applying the cream, you can make light patting movements on the chin, pulling the lips forward, pronouncing the sound of “u” or imitating a kiss. Now popular is the so-called face-building and yoga for the face. But to do such procedures after watching videos on the Internet is still dangerous: you can overdo it and outgrow your muscles. It is better to go to a facial massage or yoga at least once, remember how an expert does it and only then practice it yourself.
