Skin care in winter

Urban environment, a deteriorating environment is notcontribute to the good of our skin. Behind it requires careful maintenance. Especially in winter, when the cold wind, vitamin deficiency adversely affect our organism in general and in particular on the skin.

Leather, as we know it - this is our mantle cover, which protects us from adverse environmental factors.

Maintenance and cleaning of the skin

The skin needs regular cleansing. Daily replacement processes occur on the skin of old, dead skin cells young. On the surface of the skin cells are devoid of protoplasm, the nucleus and the inclusions, filled with keratin. This horny scales. They exfoliated, allowing new cells to come to their place. A man of middle age hourly loses about 600,000 skin cells. But such self-purification is still insufficient. Between the keratin particles stuck dust, dirt, sebum. All together it forms a dense film, which over time can serve as a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria and prevents normal breathing and skin moisture exchange.


Care and cleansing of normal skin

Normal skin should be twice a day to washwater, once daily with soap. You can use special foams and creams for washing. Using scrubs, scrub (from the French gomme - eraser, dissolves keratin, and helps to remove dead skin cells and impurities and cleanse pores) is allowed 1 time per week. Completing purification need rubbing lotions that do not contain alcohol, preferably vitamin-enriched or enriched with plant extracts.

Maintenance and cleaning of dry skin

Dry skin is very bad moves washing with water. Therefore, in the arsenal of cleansers for dry skin should be milk and tonic. Milk is usually enriched with vitamins, herbal extracts, removing irritation, oils, protecting lipid layer from destruction. Milk is well removes cosmetics. Tonic is also enriched by such substances, complete purification. If the person was deposited waterproof cosmetics, then it need special lotions with a high content of oils.

Scrubs for dry skin should be usedrarely. It is better to use soft peeling compositions with small granules, preferably artificial, or soft gommazhi. Use these tools need no more than once a week. In winter, the owners of a dry skin it is better to renounce the use of aggressive cleaning agents, because they can damage the already scarce lipid cover. After scraping dry skin areas may appear peeling and irritation. To avoid this, you can use the normal ground oatmeal diluted in boiled water to the state of slurry. This super-soft peeling will not harm the skin.

Care and cleansing oily skin

Oily skin loves water and harsh cleansersfacilities. Owners of such skin type want to remove from the skin thick plaque fat, mixed with cosmetics and dust. It is a natural desire to have to implement, washing up 2 times a day with special gels, deeply cleanses the skin. Soap is better not to apply, because, having an alkaline reaction, it can create on oily skin a favorable environment for habitat and breeding of pathogens. Foams and gels for washing oily skin often have a pH - neutral environment or, better yet, an acid.

Scrubs and Peels are best used 1-2twice a week, and it may be three times a week for very strong fat. But the use of scrubs is contraindicated in the presence of purulent inflammatory elements in the skin. Using scrubs in this case, you risk "smash" infectious microorganisms all over the face and cause inflammation in other areas. Terminate purification necessarily using lotion that helps restore the skin the necessary protection and acid does not increase sebaceous excretions.

It is adversely affected by oily skinalcoholic solutions. Yes, for some time it created a sense of purity, respiratory and skin smoothness, but such a cleansing process starts immediately reinforced salovydeleniya that can exceed the initial level of sebum. This forms a constant problem with the skin which only strengthens rather than weakens the oiliness of the skin. Alcohol lotions are intended for problem skin with acne inflammatory elements. They need to put a dot directly on the inflamed elements, rather than wipe the entire surface of the skin.

Mixed skin should be cleaned carefully, findingcompromise between oily and dry areas. It is best suited for this jelly and cream, but after that areas with high fat content must be processed gel for oily skin and rinse with water. After that, if necessary, an exfoliating oily areas only, carefully trying not to touch dry. Then use lotions separately for different areas of the skin.

Masks for face and skin type

So, our skin is cleaned. You can proceed to the next stage of care - masks. Masks also are divided according to skin type and challenges set, the winter should be paying more attention to masks nutritious and fortified.


Dry facial skin

For dry skin nutrient, rich mask2 should be applied once a week. And preferably 1-2 times fortified. Dry skin loves extracts of wheat germ, beans, soy, oil agave, avocado, almond and peach lecithin and spermaceti. Masks are applied: cleaned face and neck for 20-30 minutes and then removed with water, lotion or wash out. Indelible mask called cream mask.


Dry skin requires regular moisturizing. In winter, too, must not forget about it, because overdried air heated space can damage the skin. 1-2 times a month nourishing mask should be replaced moisturizing. And you should always have with you spray with a key IPT thermal water for periodic irrigation of the skin, especially on prolonged standing in front of a computer or in a heated room. However, in the winter it is not necessary to irrigate the skin before going out.

Oily facial skin

Oily skin suffers less in the winter. Even feels better than in the warm summer days. However, it is also necessary for regular maintenance.

Masks for oily skin in the winter - it is alsonutrients enriched with vitamins and light oils, essential better. Making such a mask should be 1 time per week, and with the same frequency - fortified. However, if the mask dry skin often come in a creamy, rich texture, it is for oily skin texture should be soft, emulsion or gel. Good oily skin suffers film mask. I especially want to draw attention to the fact that the likes oily skin extracts of birch buds, cucumber, lavender, essential oils of tea Derain, rosemary, pine extract and propolis.

For owners of problematic skin with acneelements are mandatory masks with clay - white or blue. This is a wonderful tool for the recovery of oily, porous and inflamed skin. Necessary to make such a mask 1 time per week in the winter and 2 times per week in the summer.

The general rule is mandatory rubbing skin lotion after removing the masks.


Normal facial skin

Normal skin requires the alternation of power, saturated with vitamins and moisture 1-2 times a week.

Mixed skin, as you probably already understood, requires a selective approach. On the fatty areas are superimposed masks for oily skin and for dry - dry.

A little trick: the best time for masks and all day cosmetic care homes - from 21 to 23 hours. It is proved that at this time, our skin has the highest absorption capacity of substances applied to it. And again, when you have made a mask, try to lie down, close your eyes, turn on soft music and just daydream about something pleasant. If you can not lie down, try to take a comfortable relaxed position and also delve into pleasant dreams. Positive emotional experiences can enhance the absorption of nutrients in the skin as much as 7%, and this, believe me, quite a lot.

The skin is prone to irritation and skin with dilated vessels

The skin is prone to irritation and skin with dilatedvessels. In winter, these two types of skin are very much affected by temperature and humidity changes. As a rule, in the evening the skin becomes painfully irritated, flaky and sensitive. Anyone touching it becomes unpleasant. This is necessary to give the skin a soothing relaxation mask every night. Coming home and removing makeup, put on face gauze soaked in chamomile broth. The temperature of this mask should be slightly higher than body temperature. Napkin should be kept on your face until it cools down. This procedure can be repeated 2-3 times. You can then move on to the ordinary care.
