The skin is the largest organ of the human body. He needs to feed regularly and a little tender love. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity as collagen begins to deteriorate, causing the skin to refine and collapse historically. Collagen works alongside elastin, combined they provide the support structure of the skin.
We can not naturally prevent the aging process without depending on cosmetic surgery or collagen fillers. But we can take care of our skin.
It goes without saying that a balanced and hydrated diet will help to look and feel healthy and well.
Your skin reacts to hydration, so it is important to drink plenty of water. It is also important to clean, tone, moisturize and exfoliate your skin regularly.
Where to start?
Develop a beauty routine.
You should take the habit of developing a beauty routine at least daily; but morning and evening are preferred. It will only take a few minutes a day, the more time you spend in front of the mirror! The results are worth a few minutes a day.
Do not forget to clean, tone, moisturize and exfoliate.
Step 1. Clean your skin to start. Why? To remove dirt and pollutants from the atmosphere that has accumulated during the day. If you wear makeup, it's important to remove your makeup before reapplying. The type of cleanser you use is a matter of personal choice, whether you opt for a facial wash, a cleansing lotion or a cream. Make sure you know your skin type first to get the most out of your cleanser. You do not have to scrub & # 39; your face clean, treat your skin with respect. After cleaning, the next step is toning.
Step 2. Tone, using a cotton swab, starts with the T zone; This covers the forehead, both sides of your nose, then the area between your lower lip and your chin. This tends to be the oily zone, & # 39; Toner will remove even more dirt from your skin, it also closes your pores. Let the toner dry before the next step, applying a moisturizer gently on your face and neck.
Step 3. Hydration. Be careful around the eye area because the skin around the eye area is fable and very thin. It is worth investing in an eye cream, preferably one that you can apply at night to protect and moisturize the eyes. Rub the moisturizer between your fingers and then start to sweep upward and outward from the neck area until you have covered the neck and face. Do not apply a lot of pressure, you do not need to use too much cream!
Step 4. Exfoliation – An exfoliant removes dead, dry skin from your body / face. Exfoliants are found in bath products such as shower gels. This has its advantages because it saves time. Be careful not to use a body scrub on your face; the face requires a softer product. You do not need to exfoliate every day! Weekly is acceptable.
It's probably worth visiting the beauty bar for advice on what kind of product will fit your skin.
Personal recommendations for my product: CLARINS Alpine Herbal Cleanser for dry to normal skin, or One Step Facial Cleanser for all skin types. A less expensive and very effective skin cleanser is Cetaphil. Toner, try the Neutrogena facial lotion. One of my favorite moisturizers is Olay Regenerist. Firming eye cream – Perricone ® (available from Sephora). The night for your skin-Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair. Under the makeup CLARINS Beauty Flash Balm. Body lotion, try Avon skin products as well as soft, including shower gels with oil. The Body Body Butter from The Body Shop is fabulous. Look for shower gels that include an exfoliator – available in supermarkets and pharmacies.
Of course, I have more products in my closet!
