Itso is the calling card of every woman. Beautiful and well-groomed skin makes us feel confident and attractive. It is a mistake to think that to maintain a good appearance, you only need to visit a beautician regularly, and the rest of the time, washing and a simple cream are enough. Many women make serious mistakes even in simple daily facial procedures. But only with the help of proper care you can preserve the beauty and youth of the skin for many years.
Facial care is a whole ritual, the importance of which cannot be overestimated. With a well-built system, daily care turns into a 10-minute pleasure in the mornings and evenings, and the result will not be long in coming.
The right approach to facial care always begins with determining your skin type. This is necessary in order to choose the right cosmetics. For example, products for oily and dry skin are significantly different, and the wrong approach can lead to negative consequences. In total, there are four types of skin – normal, oily, dry and combination. The stages of facial skin care are the same for all types, only cosmetic products for these procedures are individual, for the selection of which it is initially better to contact a beautician.
Daily home skin care involves the following basic steps:
Basic care (moisturizing and nutrition)
Compliance with each step is an important part of care.
It is necessary to cleanse the skin in the morning and in the evening. Cleansing is the first and main self-care step that many people do wrong, such as removing makeup by washing with gel. Washer and makeup remover are two different products with different tasks. Micellar water or oil, special lotion, etc. are suitable for removing makeup. After you get rid of makeup, you can proceed to washing. And here it is worth choosing carefully, focusing on your skin type. Owners of dry and combination skin are recommended to use products that do not contain alcohol. For oily skin, you can use GIGI mousses and gels for washing. Hypoallergenic products are suitable for sensitive skin.
The next step after cleansing is toning, which allows you to restore the pH of the skin after washing, neutralize the effects of cleansers and prepare the skin for the application of a moisturizer. It is necessary to wipe the face with tonic both in the morning and in the evening immediately after cleansing. It is impossible to ignore the tonic, because toning helps the comfortable assimilation of subsequent care, and without it, the effectiveness of all beauty procedures decreases.
Basic care is applied twice a day. Immediately after toning, eye care is applied, such as GIGI eye cream with vitamin E and beneficial acids. After that, the main face cream is applied. In the morning, 15-30 minutes before applying makeup, so that it has time to completely absorb. In the evening, at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
Moisturizing is a very important item in personal care, because it is thanks to moisture that our skin looks fresh and healthy. Moisturize skin of any type in the morning and evening, because lack of moisture leads to dry skin, loss of elasticity and firmness, and as a result, premature wrinkles. When caring for your face, do not forget to apply cosmetics on the neck and décolleté.
Choose a cream should be according to the individual needs of the skin. It should be remembered that hydration and nutrition do not exist one without the other. At temperatures above +7 in the morning, moisturize the skin, nourish in the evening. At temperatures below + 7 vice versa. In autumn, it is recommended to switch to more saturated, oily and dense textures, in summer, on the contrary, to gel and light textures.
This stage of care is optional and includes various masks and serums. Serums are best used as a course and applied in the evening before the main care. Vitamin and moisturizing serums are recommended to be added in the off-season, when the skin adjusts to the vagaries of the weather, as well as after stress, stress and air travel. For example, GIGI Lotus Beauty serum has a powerful anti-inflammatory, rejuvenating and lifting effect.
SPF is not a seasonal, but a year-round product. Ultraviolet has a destructive effect on the skin, so SPF is needed for everyone who does not want to age prematurely. Pay attention to the presence of SPF in day care. Choose a product with a protection factor of at least 30 for spring-summer. In the GIGI body cosmetics line, you can find a light sunscreen with an anti-aging effect, which can be applied to the skin as a second layer after basic care, if necessary.
It must be understood that regular home facial care and the right approach to business are the main secrets of perfect and healthy skin.
