Stage one - superficial cleansing
Whether you have makeup residue on your face or not, it is important to use one of these products before washing your face.
One of the most economical cleaners for the first stage of cleansing - just one drop is enough to completely rinse away dirt. Apply the oil along the massage lines and don't be afraid to use it for eye makeup remover. Important: For best results, preheat the oil between your palms.
Wet a cotton pad with the detergent and thoroughly remove surface contamination without rubbing. Waterproof makeup can also be washed off with micellar water - just hold the disc for a few seconds to remove any mascara, eyeliner or eyeshadow.
The wax works on the principle of a hydrophilic oil. During a balm massage, you not only get rid of make-up and sebum, but also accelerate blood flow, increasing the effectiveness of subsequent products.
Stage two - deep cleansing
Gel / cream / foam for washing
After cleansing with one of the above types of products, you need to start washing. Gels / creams / foams for washing deeply cleanse the skin, preventing the appearance of blackheads and closed comedones, and also deliver oxygen to the skin in a small amount. In order to more economically use means for deep cleansing, you can use various gadgets (several times a week), sponges or a foam net.
Stage three - exfoliation
Before applying a lotion, serum, mask, or cream, you may want to pay extra attention to getting rid of dead cells (stratum corneum). To do this, on a daily basis, you can use soft peels without enzyme particles (special powders, gels or salicylic discs). After this stage, the skin becomes absolutely clean and is ready to take useful ingredients from the care products.
Stage four - toning
As you know, water molecules have a high penetrating ability, therefore, it is better to complete the cleansing stage by applying a tonic, lotion or a special spray (thermal water). In addition to neutral and moisturizing products for toning, there are special acid-based lotions for thick, oily skin. They are quite aggressive and cause redness, but allow you to remove hidden dirt. Therefore, in the first two to three weeks, the number of rashes may increase. It is important to use this type of product in conjunction with sunscreens to prevent pigmentation - a protective reaction of skin that does not have a stratum corneum.
Stage five - hydration or nutrition
Depending on your skin type, it is important to complete your daily skincare routine with hydration or nutrition. Dry, tired or dehydrated skin needs to be restored, so here you should choose thick and even heavy creams or use a moisturizer after applying the serum. For other types, any moisturizer (gels, creams, or serums) will work.
In addition to using the daily multi-stage system, the skin must be periodically cleansed and nourished with more concentrated types of products.
Clay masks improve elasticity, pull out impurities from the pores. Because the clay is tight enough to seal the skin, serums can be applied underneath to increase the effectiveness of both products. If you use dry clay, then it is better to dilute it with mineral water.
Alginate masks are another type that blocks the access of oxygen to the skin and allows you to increase the effectiveness of the previously applied product. It is good to apply moisturizing masks, serums or boosters under the alginate mask. By the way, professional cosmetologists work according to the same system.
Moisturizing / revitalizing masks - whether cloth or canned - are best used after the above peels or cleansing masks. Do not be afraid to use several masks of different effects in a row: this way the skin will be as "bare" as possible and all moisturizing components will work two to three times more powerful.
All serums work exclusively after thorough and multi-stage cleansing and subsequent toning. This type of care product is best used after light self-massage with hands or special beauty gadgets. Serums / concentrates can also be added to or underneath the base cream to enhance the results of both products.
Local action means
Local beauty products should be used after you have completed all the care steps. Dab the moisturizer with salicylic acid and apply the top of the acne / comedone remedy exactly on the inflammation itself. This is how you will keep your skin hydrated, preventing flaking and the appearance of new inflammation, but at the same time effectively get rid of the pimples that have already formed.
Bruises and bags under the eyes appear, among other things, due to improper application of funds for this area. Distribute the cream at the end of the treatment with light, hammering movements to accelerate microcirculation, which is precisely responsible for the high penetration of moisturizing ingredients and a fresh, rested appearance of this part of the face.>
