Aging skin requires not only daily care, but also special procedures for rejuvenation. They will help smooth out wrinkles, tighten ovals, give skin a pleasant color, softness and elasticity. No need to go to the salon - you can improve the condition of the face at home.
Aging skin problems: things you need to deal with
Cosmeticians are convinced that skin aging begins at the age of 25 years. The early signs are not so noticeable. Gradually, the epidermis loses its elasticity, losing its ability to retain moisture; after a full night’s sleep, the skin has no time to recover. Every year more and more strong cosmetics are needed, there is a need for salon procedures. At the age of 40, the problem becomes apparent, it becomes increasingly difficult to hide flaws with makeup. The main signs of aging include:
- changes in the density of the epidermis;
- increased skin dryness, significant exfoliation;
- enlarged pores and uneven relief;
- uneven pigmentation;
- earth's crust;
- swelling, especially noticeable under the eyes;
- "floating" oblong face;
- small wrinkles, prone to deepening.
With age, skin type can change. Women who have normal skin at a young age begin to complain of increased dryness. The oily epidermis suffers from dehydration and irritation, responding to weather changes and new cosmetics.
Not always the rapid deterioration of skin appearance is associated with age. Appearance is negatively affected by:
- smoking and alcohol;
- lack of fresh air;
- insufficient sleep;
- overly aggressive cleaning;
- inappropriate cosmetics;
- hormonal disorders.
Before you start an anti-aging procedure at home, you need to eliminate as many negative factors as possible. It is important to increase the amount of fluids you drink and monitor your diet. The menu includes as many fresh vegetables and fruits as possible, fermented dairy products, natural fiber. It is advisable to quit smoking completely and reduce the amount of alcohol, get enough sleep and walk more.
Rejuvenation at home: necessary procedures
An experienced cosmetologist can develop an individual anti-aging program and choose the right cosmetics. Your daily ritual should include:
- Gentle cleansing with a very gentle preparation enriched with natural oils, marine collagen, silk proteins and vitamins. It is better to replace tap water with boiled, filtered or spring water.
- Multi -stage humidification. The only universal cream will not be able to maintain the hydro-lipid balance at optimal levels. It is recommended to first moisturize the face with a lotion enriched with herbal extracts and hyaluronic acid, then apply a liquid emulsion and nourishing cream. High quality cosmetics are absorbed quickly without causing discomfort. Multi -level application allows you to retain moisture in the skin, preventing exfoliation and dryness.
- Balanced diet. It is recommended to apply the serum first to the face, and then lubricate the skin with a cream. Deep recovery products are used in a course of 20-30 days. For example, after finishing a course with retinol, you can relax for a while and start using products with hyaluronic acid or vitamin C.
Excellent anti -aging agent - a mask with collagen, retinol and hyaluronic acid.
From time to time, the skin needs more active treatment. Deep cleansing is important to repair the skin. Instead of an aggressive scrub, a fine gommage is used. The creamy product is applied on the face, wait a few minutes and roll the mass with your fingers. At the same time, keratinized scales, sebum plugs, cosmetic residues and other impurities are removed from the surface of the skin. After such a procedure, the face becomes brighter, fine wrinkles are smoothed, blush appears. You can repeat the cleaning 1-2 times a week.
For makeup removal, not an aggressive gel is used, but a saturated hydrophilic oil that deeply cleanses the skin and does not dry it out.
Mature skin is well affected by superficial exfoliation. At home, you can use formulations with the addition of fruit acids. They gently exfoliate dead cells, refresh the face and increase nutrient penetration. For very dry and thin skin, softer glycol skin is ideal. It is recommended to use preparations from the professional series, they are more effective. The exact course depends on the person’s condition. Acid skin should not be used in spring and summer, active sunlight contributes to the appearance of age spots.
Properly selected lifting cream will tighten the oval of the face and prevent age -related ptosis.
Traditional methods to combat skin aging
For skin rejuvenation, foundations and essential oils are actively used. They should be applied on a face that has been thoroughly cleansed, avoiding the area around the eyes. The rich oil texture produces a protective film on the surface of the skin, helping to smooth out wrinkles and retain moisture on the skin. A few drops of ether are added to the base oil of almond, soy or peach. Lavender or jasmine oil fights hyperpigmentation and deeply nourishes dry skin. Pink has a slight lifting effect and is ideal for self -massage. Juniper shrinks enlarged pores and evens out relief, neroli smoothes fine wrinkles, soothes and accelerates cell regrowth.
Instead of industrial tonics, you can use herbal decoctions. Parsley will brighten the skin and get rid of age spots, chamomile will relieve dryness and flaking, oak bark will reduce pores. Rinse face with cold boiled water after washing in the morning or evening.
Basic vegetable oils can be used for hot compresses and body wraps. They are especially useful in winter, when the skin suffers from dryness.
Homemade masks will help tighten the oval of the face, refresh the skin and improve its color. Red clay will help moisturized and toned skin. The powder is mixed with warm milk to form a slurry that is not too thick. It is applied on cleansed skin for 10-15 minutes and washed thoroughly first with warm water and then cooled. For deep nutrition and elasticity, a fresh yeast mask mixed with milk is ideal, the whipped protein will tighten slightly oval and reduce enlarged pores. Excellent moisturizing, exfoliating and lightening effect has a mask from fresh berries: raspberries, strawberries, cherries, grapes. The procedure is performed in the course, after 8-10 applications you can relax.
