Today we are going to talk about taking care of your skin in the most fundamental way.
CLEANING is the necessary regiment of the skincare. We need to remove our makeup entirely and thoroughly. Cleaning also removes dirt, an excess of oil, and dead cells.For dry and normal skin types, we would use the cleansing milk which contains lipids. Lipids would hydrate our skin. For oily and combination skin, we would use a cleansing gel or a delicate foam. For a sensitive skin, which doesn’t tolerate most of the cosmetics, we would use micellar water. Micellar water would remove all dirt and makeup efficiently and at this same time would work as a skin toner to balance and soothe sensitive and overly active skin.
TONING is the next step in the skin care regiment. It rebuilds our skin’s natural pH balance (natural bacteria) and leaves our face fresh and prepared to take on the cream. Face toner should not have any alcohol in it because it would overdry the skin - both dry or oily types.
DAYTIME HYDRATION & PROTECTION - hydration protects from losing our natural lipid barrier and losing of water. Day cream strengthens our skin’s natural protection and keeps its essential functions in balance. We need to choose a face cream according to our skin type, our skin’s problems, and environmental conditions.
NIGHT TIME REGENERATION & NOURISHMENT - At night, our skin’s cells become more active, they remove toxins from the surface. At night our tissue balances water and protective barrier of the skin rebuilds. The night is the best time to apply additional nutrients to our skin to revitalize, condition and repair it. We always use a night cream after we remove makeup, clean our face, and tone it.
SPECIAL TREATMENT - PEELING. Removal of the dead skin cells should be done no more than 2-3 times a month. It helps to smooth it, even out the skin tone, and absorb the nutrients. Mechanical peeling can be done to all skin types except a face with dilated capillaries condition and fragile skin. These kinds of skin should be only exposed to enzymatic peeling treatments.
SPECIAL TREATMENT - MASKS. They aid in every-day skin cleansing regimen by cleaning, exfoliating, removing dirt, an excess of sebum, dead cells, and toxins, unclogging pores.
Because of the condensation of nutrients in the mask, it moisturizes, nourishes, regenerates and strengthens our skin giving it a healthy glow and protective barrier.
