Let’s start by saying that each person has their own skin type. There are five main skin types: dry, sensitive, normal, combined and oily. Each type has its own characteristics and requires its special care, quite very different from each other.
Dry skin has a dull and matte hue. Strongly reacts to the effects of the external environment, the skin becomes coarse and begins to peel.
Sensitive skin becomes excessively dry and tightens even in the slightest contact with water, irritated from contact with clothes, weather and climatic impacts. As a result, it forms redness, pimples, pimples.
Normal skin looks healthy, with even and small pores. The fat and moisture content in it is balanced, and irritation on the skin is infrequent.
Combined skin looks healthy, with fairly even structure and oily areas, with large pores in the T-zone area passing through the forehead, nose and chin, with possible areas of dryness on the cheeks, in the eye area and on the temples.
Oily skin has a characteristic oily sheen, large pores that are very noticeable.
After you have determined your skin type, you should carefully take the choice of grooming cosmetics. Before you arm yourself with a bunch of tubes, you need to be sure that this tube will suit you. Each cosmetic product is written for what type of skin is suitable for this product. Thus, if you have oily skin prone to the appearance of black dots, choose a washing agent, tonic or cream that says “for oily skin”. Similarly with other skin types.
What do you need to have to fight problem skin?
In order to keep the “problem skin” in full order, your arsenal should have such remedies: gel or foam for washing, (should not be used for washing, since they spoil ph balance skin), cleansing tonic, moisturizer, masks, antiseptic, if necessary specialized gels and creams to treat acne, acne.
In what sequence to carry out care?
- As soon as we wake up, wash with gel
- Next clean the skin with tonic
- Moisturizing cream
- In the evening we repeat the same procedure as in the morning. If necessary, replace the moisturizer with a cream to combat the deficiencies of your skin.
It’s simple, but you should pay attention to masks that need to be applied no more than three times a week! Masks should also be selected by your skin type and use them carefully by reading the instructions for use. You need to be more careful about the scrubs. In no case can you use a scrub for inflamed pimples, as it can injure your skin. With acne, you can scrub the skin no more than 1 time a week. The scrub exfoliates dead skin cells and improves blood flow to the skin of the face, but nevertheless, it can severely injure.
What can’t be done with problem skin?
- You can’t touch your face with your hands, because of the touch on your face there are many germs that are on your hands, this leads to new acne
- can’t squeeze out pimples and black point, it won’t save you from them, but on the contrary will lead to new entities
- You can’t wash more than 3 times a day. Excessive cleansing leads to an impaired ph balance of the skin. In simple words, apart from germs that lead to inflammatory processes, wash away and useful ones that preserve the elasticity of the skin. This leads to excessive sebum secretion, which is a great environment for new black dots and acne
How does the food consumed affect the skin of the face?
Everyone heard the phrase “We are what we eat.” And our skin is a display of what we ate. Thus, if you want to get rid of acne, you need to get rid of harmful food as well.
Thus, harmful to problematic skin includes: fried, cream products, chocolate, ice cream, caramel, black tea, coffee, sodas, spices, sauces (ketchup, mayonnaise), oily sour cream, greasy cheese, salinity, smokes, fatty fish varieties, canned foods, fatty varieties of meat, sausage, puff and seed dough, pasta and semolina in large quantities, fastfood. All these products are not worth abusing, but better, some of them are excluded from your diet altogether.
Products that can be consumed: mainly vegetable soups, sci, borschi, weak low-fat meat and fish broths, non-fat varieties of various types of meat, liver, rye-wheat bread, bread with bran, inedible pastries, dry biscuits, various cereals (millet, buckwheat, oatmeal, barley, corn), legumes — peas, beans, soybeans, non-fat seafood, eggs, fermented dairy products, non-fat sour cream and cheese, vegetables, greens, fruits, dried fruits, berries, green tea, rosehip decoction, fruit and vegetable juices, sugar, honey, jam, marmalade.
These are dietary guidelines for acne. Meal mode – 3-4 times a day. The most acceptable way of cooking is boiling, baking and steaming.
And the most important rule is water consumption every day. The amount of human water consumed per day varies differently. It’s nice to think that a person has to drink about 2 liters of water a day. Water and proper nutrition are the main secret of clean and healthy skin.
It would also be nice to incorporate sports loads into your life. The thing is, when we play sports, our body, together with sweat, displaces the slags, thus cleansing the body and therefore the skin.
Another recommendation, after receiving information, make a small plan to care for your skin. Make up a diet.
And don’t forget about such a stereotype that facial skin care, the use of grooming cosmetics are exclusively women’s activities. Not at all, facial care should be performed by every person, regardless of gender. Guys with clean manicured facial skin look a lot more attractive.
Regularly complying with basic skincare guidelines, you will forget about the appearance of new acne, redness and black dots.
And if the problem does not go away, it is necessary to seek help from a dermatologist, take tests and act on the recommendations of the doctor.
