Wash your face properly
Mar 24, 2018
For washing, it is better to use soft water.
Hard water can be softened by boiling it for an hour, then letting it settle. Another way - in a liter of water to dissolve one or half a teaspoon of baking soda or borax.
Do not wash with cold water or hot water. Cold skin becomes dry, begins to peel off. Hot with prolonged use causes a persistent expansion of blood vessels - the skin becomes flabby, lethargic, the cold tolerates less.
Dry skin is very sensitive to external influences, so it is better to wash yourself with soft water at room temperature. Wash with soap should be once a week. For dry skin, soap spermaceous or cosmetic. After washing, apply a nourishing cream on your face. After 20-30 minutes, remove the excess cream with a paper towel.
Instead of water with dry skin, you can use cleansing lotions or liquid creams.
Good effect with dry, fading skin gives face washing a decoction of herbs - chamomile, sage, lime-colored, horsetail. You can use a mixture of these herbs, taken in equal quantities, or one of them. Two tablespoons of herbs pour two glasses of hot water, boil on low heat for 5-10 minutes, then cool and strain. Washing with such decoction cleanses the skin, makes it more elastic and tender.
Those who have oily skin, we advise you to wash in the morning and in the evening with any toilet soap, preferably forest, boron-timolovoe, in the morning - cool, in the evening - alternately with warm and cool water. Spots of accumulation of blackheads should be washed with a soft sponge or cotton swab, soaking them with soap and foam. After washing, oily skin is useful to wipe with lotions, after 20-30 minutes, blot your face with a paper napkin.
Two times a day - in the morning and in the evening - it is necessary to wash and with normal skin. But soap your face better only in the evening. Skin areas where the lard-branch is usually lowered( the eyelid area, nasolabial folds), immediately after washing, grease with a nutritious cream. After 20-30 minutes, remove the residue with a paper towel.
To maintain the elasticity of the skin and a healthy complexion helps the sauna. Hot dry steam, contrast of temperatures contribute to the removal of toxins from the body, make the skin smooth and supple. Such a useful procedure can be arranged at home. Rub the whole body with a massage mitten, and then jump over the rope for 5 minutes. But we advise such exercises only for absolutely healthy people.
Useful for oily skin and steam baths. They purify the pores, improve blood circulation. Making them at home is not difficult. In a wide bowl on low fire, boil dry chemist's daisy or linden flowers( a tablespoon per half-liter of water).Purely washed face tilt over the dishes with hot broth, cover with a towel, if the broth is too hot and it will be difficult to breathe, you can raise the edge of the towel. The steam bath is taken for 10-15 minutes, then the face needs to be wiped dry. Now, wrapping the index finger with a sterile bandage soaked in a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide, gently and carefully remove the blackheads that have appeared on the surface of the skin. But do not squeeze them out! You just need to have patience: after a few trays all the acne will go out by themselves. After finishing the procedure, wipe the face with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and wash with cold water.
Steam treatment is effective, but, unfortunately, it can not be used by those who have dilated blood vessels on the face.
