Surely, everyone has already heard about matiruyuschie means. Usually, the most heard of them are people whose skin is prone to fat. Especially strongly such funds are popular in the summer. After all, in the summer we sweat, and the greasy luster on the skin does not look aesthetically pleasing, and there is little pleasant from it.
But many may have questions – does not harm such a tool to the skin. After all, for sure, it can clog pores, prevent the skin from breathing, dry it, which is extremely undesirable in summer.
Is the matting agent harmful?
The word matting entered the Russian language from the French matt. It, in fact, means dullness, giving the skin a matte shade.
According to cosmetologists, there are various cosmetic preparations that have a matting effect. They differ in the form of their action on the skin. One group can simply remove the external manifestations of the activity of the sebaceous glands: oily sheen, dead skin particles, pollution. Then the skin looks dull, but not for long.
Other group of means removes not only momentary manifestations, but also acts deeper. Such products usually contain tanning preparations that reduce the secretion of the sebaceous glands. In this case, the pores are narrowed, the skin is dried, and the sebaceous glands are less active.
Cosmetologists argue that such tools, mainly the second group, can slow down the extraction of comedones. That is, our favorite acne and black spots will ripen for an extremely long time. Therefore, before the active use of such funds is best to clean the face.
Matting cosmetics exist in various forms. These can be lotions, facial cleansing masks, masks with deep cleansing of pores known to all of us, and simply matting wipes that can be used during the day.
But, at the same time, cosmetologists say that matting cosmetics should not contain alcohol, otherwise they completely destroy the protective forces of the skin and open the way for various infections. Such products should contain herbal extracts, salicylic acid, tannins, clay. In general, after application there should not be a feeling of tightness and dryness of the skin.
Matting tonic from Nivea
This tonic came to me not so long ago. I can not say that my skin is too oily. But when I worked in the office, after lunch, the problem areas, namely the forehead and nose, acquired an unpleasant shine. Earlier, I wiped them with calendula spirit tincture, but then decided that it was too aggressive to be used regularly.
By the means Nivey I have confidence. In my reserves, there is already a body cream from Nivea, previously there was also a deodorant from this company, and a friend presented me with a whole set of tools: face cream, soap, a roll-on deodorant. I really like Nivea’s winter cream, which is focused on nourishing skin and protecting it.
Matting tonic also pleased. I rub the skin with tonic irregularly, but only during periods of excessive gloss. Sometimes it does not irritate me, and sometimes it is simply unbearable and I want to erase it with something. Since then, the tonic is always at hand. Once a cotton swab dipped in tonic on the problem area of the face, and voila – the skin is clean and fresh.
– light in texture, does not leave a film on the skin;
– not a strong smell, I believe that the means for the face should not smell much;
– feeling of freshness on the skin;
– there is no greasy;
– the effect lasts almost all day;
– no dryness, just pleasant to the touch and matte skin.
Again, everything is subjective. Such a tonic did not suit my friend. He removed the greasy shine, but not for long. Perhaps its effectiveness depends on the degree of oily skin.
