If skin pores are enlarged, it quickly becomes dirty and requires constant care. To do this, there are many tools for the care of oily and problem skin: scrubs, masks, tonics. And if at the same time the skin is still sensitive and naughty after applying care products, which results in dryness and flaking? In this case, you need to smear it with a moisturizer. But after all, it is oily, or dry, or dry, or oily … In general, mixed.
For such a problem skin, sparing care products have been created. Here I see black dots in the mirror, and it annoys me terribly. Scrub helps to get rid of them, removes dead skin cells and removes accumulated dirt, but after scrub, the skin begins to inevitably peel off. I don’t know if nature alone has rewarded me with such wealth. I do not complain, my skin is good, but it is very capricious.
How to choose cosmetics for sensitive skin
According to cosmetologists, sensitive is not a type of skin, it is her reaction. Both dry and oily skin can be sensitive. Symptoms of skin sensitivity are redness, peeling, itching and irritation. And most often, the sensitivity as a result occurs after the application of cosmetics.
Care for sensitive skin needs special. Beauticians advise to stop at the gentle skin care products, marked for sensitive skin. In such funds should not include alcohol, which dries the skin, ideally the minimum content of fragrances. Of the desired components should be present – herbal extracts, aloe vera, oils and extracts.
If the skin is naughty, it is better to wash it with hot and cold water. Water temperature should be comfortable and not cause discomfort. To remove makeup you need to use products with moisturizing ingredients. If you can not live without foundation, then it must necessarily indicate that it is hypoallergenic. After all, the tonal basis is that which is constantly present on the face.
But in case of hypersensitivity cosmetologists do not advise overloading the skin with cosmetics, especially decorative. It is desirable to do a minimum of funds. For night care, it is better to choose a cream containing panthenol, vitamin A and E. As a cleansing agent for sensitive skin, a tonic based on herbal extracts is sufficient.
Excessive tan for such skin is of little use. If you really want, you can sunbathe, only under the strong protection of strong tanning cream. Otherwise, drying the upper layer of the skin with its subsequent peeling is inevitable. It should be said that excessive tanning is generally harmful to the skin, it leads to premature wrinkles. Everything should be in moderation.
Scrub for sensitive skin from Yves Rocher
Yet, despite the sensitivity of the skin, I sometimes use a scrub. Not every day. But the external environment, dust and other troubles are deposited on the skin, and just wash them off with water – a little. After several days, an unpleasant plaque forms on the skin that you want to eliminate.
Therefore, with regularity twice a week, I use a gentle exfoliation agent from Yves Rocher. I ordered this scrub somehow suddenly and completely thoughtlessly. He lay in the drawer for quite a long time until he was found by me when sorting cosmetics. It turned out that the shelf life allows it to be used for its intended purpose, and he took his place on the shelf in the bathroom.
When I tried it for the first time, its consistency seemed rather strange to me. I got used to that a scrub is something exfoliating, consisting of grains, the impact of which is felt on the skin during friction. But to touch the pure system scrub was devoid of rigidity and abrasive components.
At first I even thought that I had acquired not a scrub at all, but some kind of foam for washing. But, after applying, the skin condition surprised me, it really cleared, but there was no sensation of retraction and dryness. In its composition, a remedy for Yves Rocher will contain Aloe Vera, Skullcap extract (as it turned out, this plant), powder of apricot seeds.
About the magic action of aloe vera, I think everyone knows. It has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. But Slipbox, for me personally, is a new name. This plant, quite beautiful, is used in cosmetology specifically for problem and combination skin, has a mattifying effect and protects the skin from the effects of adverse factors.
Apricot seed powder improves the complexion, tones the skin, helps the scrub to penetrate deeper, enhances the cleansing effect. Usually apricot stones are used in the form of butter, but for the scrub the consistency of powder is better suited. On the packaging of the scrub Yves Rocher indicated – gentle cleansing. And I agree with that.
– a good cleansing effect, after applying the scrub, the skin becomes smoother, minor irregularities are removed;
– It should be noted a mild and sparing effect, after washing with a scrub there is no burning sensation;
– oily shine disappears, and the skin becomes matte;
– after applying the scrub, the skin does not peel off and there is no feeling of tightness.
In general, use it safely. Checked on yourself. Just do not try to intensively rub the skin with a scrub, doubting its cleansing properties. It is enough to massage slightly and the effect will be obvious.
