Every modern girl practically with mother’s milk absorbed common truths for skin care of the face: cleansing, moisturizing, nutrition. But to decide at what age you should begin to “conjure” over your appearance and how not to be mistaken with choosing the right means is not an easy task.
After consulting with experts, we made the basic rules for facial care, to always look young and beautiful.
Take note: you should always clean the skin, regardless of whether you use decorative cosmetics or not. Make-up removers give the skin to breathe, freeing it not only from particles of cosmetics, but also from other impurities.
Only well-cleansed skin is able to absorb the active ingredients contained in subsequent care products.
The task of the day cream is to help the skin retain moisture under the epidermis. After all, well-hydrated skin is better against time. Select products depending on skin type: light cream – for normal or combination skin, more fat – for dry or sensitive skin.
In the summer, use a more “air” texture, in the winter – more dense. The main criterion that the cream suits you: it does not tighten the skin, does not leave an oily sheen, does not cause irritation. Another important function of day cream – to protect the skin from external influences: the sun, tobacco, exhaust gases.
Starting from the age of 25, use products with SPF filters and active antioxidants (vitamins E, C, plant polyphenols). They are able to limit the negative impact of the environment.
Many since adolescence may have skin problems – irritation or acne. Due to the increased activity of the sebaceous glands, the skin becomes more oily and turns into a hotbed of these “intruders”. In such cases, use a cream with anti-seboric (combating excess skin fat) and anti-inflammatory components.
Also matte (fat regulating) cream is suitable for shiny, oily skin. It contains active substances that act as mini sponges that absorb excess fat.
Oligo-elements – copper or zinc – help regulate fat production.
Collagen is responsible for the strength, elasticity and youthfulness of the skin. At the age of 20 its content in the skin becomes maximum, but by the age of 40 it is almost half of what it was at the age of 20.
The natural aging process of the skin can not be stopped, but it can be slowed down – properly caring for the skin. It is difficult to determine the exact age when you need to start using anti-age products.
Everything is individual – after all, no one has repealed the laws of genetics. Look in the mirror: your skin itself will answer this question.
From about the age of 25, use agents that prevent the appearance of the first wrinkles and stimulate cell regeneration. Look for urea, vitamins A, E, C, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (the smaller the molecule, the deeper it penetrates the skin) and antiglycan molecules that “protect” collagen. Do not use drugs for more mature skin in the hope of preventing its aging.
The result will be the opposite: the skin will get used to such powerful support and stop working independently. After 30 years, with the appearance of deeper wrinkles, use products based on phyto-estrogens (increase the elasticity and moisture of the skin) and polypeptides (stimulate the production of collagen and elastin).
If the cream provides the skin with moisture and nutrition, then the palm in the renewal of the skin belongs to the serum. It is necessary during stress, extreme fatigue, during the period of the seasons – when the skin is especially weakened and it is difficult to renew on its own.
If you feel that your regular cream “works” not so effectively, connect the “heavy artillery” and add in the diet serum. It has a much higher concentration of active substances that quickly penetrate the skin and have enhanced effects. Up to 30 years old, serum with the formula “first wrinkles” is sufficient, with the content of retinol, peptides and vitamin C. For mature skin, suitable products that include strengthening (extracts of beer yeast and algae) and bleaching (extract of licorice and horse chestnut) components.
After 45 years, apply the serum on the neck, décolleté, and hands.
Most often, this “fighter for beauty” becomes our first anti-aging remedy. After all, the skin in this delicate area, the most vulnerable and mobile, suffers first and foremost.
Effective skin care around the eyes includes vitamin complexes. Retinol (vitamin A) provides a powerful antioxidant effect.
Vitamin C – stimulates collagen synthesis. Vitamin K – fights dark circles.
If the main mission of day creams – protective, then night – restoring. It is at night that the skin is renewed and gaining strength in order to withstand external stimuli the next day.
With age, the skin’s ability to regenerate weakens, so it is necessary to stimulate it and not to neglect the night cream. It is important to know: at night (from 23 to 4 hours) the skin loses 4 times more moisture than during the day.
As a result, the permeability of the skin increases, so it absorbs better the useful ingredients contained in the “night snipers”.
For best results, cosmetologists advise to combine home care with salon procedures. It is a professional who is able to select a competent care, taking into account the individual characteristics of the skin.
