Each woman strives only for one thing, to preserve and extend her beauty and youth as long as possible, but not everyone knows how to properly care for her face. To achieve visible results, it is necessary to select the right skin care from a young age. Moreover, it should be borne in mind that if in young years girls should pay more attention to skin cleansing, then at a more mature age - their nutrition.
Features of daily face care
Each age and skin type is characterized by certain features, deficiencies and problem areas that must be prevented or eliminated using face care products, consisting of a certain set of necessary properties. So, facial care should be selected based on the following characteristics.
Age characteristics of the skin
Four main types of skin can be distinguished here:
Up to 20 years (youthful): the skin during adolescence is characterized by elasticity and elasticity of the epithelium, but the excessive activity of the sebaceous glands, enlarged pores, youthful acne, etc. become a frequent problem. During this period, it is necessary to pay special attention to cleansing the skin, normalizing the activity of the sebaceous glands.
Up to 35 years old (young): during this period, as a rule, the hormonal background is already stabilized, which minimizes the appearance of defects in the form of acne, but another problem arises - the production of natural collagen in the deep layers of the dermis decreases, which often leads to the appearance of the first facial wrinkles . Particular attention at this age should be paid to toning and moisturizing the skin.
Up to 45 years (mature): mature skin requires special care, since choosing the right face care scheme during this period, a woman can significantly delay the period of her withering. In adulthood, intensive hydration, nutrition and the fight against the first signs of aging are necessary.
More than 45 years (fading): during this period, an integrated approach is important in the struggle for youth and beauty. Here you need both active home facial skin care and intensive use of cosmetic anti-aging procedures in beauty salons.
Typical features of the skin
In addition to the age framework, the epithelium in each woman has a number of features that allow her skin membrane to be attributed to one of the following categories:
Problematic / oily skin: characteristic for adolescence. The skin is distinguished by the active development of a skin secret, which, with untimely / insufficient face care, can provoke the appearance of comedones, acne, acne, etc. Proper skin care based on deep cleansing and toning of the skin will help prevent and reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.
Dry: this type of skin most often suffers from peeling, irritation, especially manifested under the influence of aggressive environmental factors (sun, wind, frost). In addition, this type of dermis is most prone to premature wrinkle formation. Step-by-step home facial skin care, aimed at moisturizing, toning and nourishing, will help to cope with the first wrinkles.
Normal / combination: as a rule, facial skin care of this type does not cause any particular problems. Minor defects can occur under the influence of external or internal stimuli, but they, as a rule, are local and short-term in nature. The manifestation of certain deficiencies will indicate how to care for a person in a certain period of time.
Sensitive: daily face care of this type needs special protective properties. The sensitivity of the skin membrane can be caused by allergic reactions, external factors acting on it, features of metabolic processes in epithelial cells, etc.
Features of seasonal facial
Do not neglect the nuances inherent in the seasonal rules of facial skin care.
Winter. Oddly enough, but with the first cold weather, our skin shell does not suffer from a decrease in air temperature, but from differences in the humidity level in the room where the air is drained by the air conditioning system, and on the street. Among the skin problems characteristic of this season are: peeling, manifestation of the vascular network, allergic reactions, dryness and loss of elasticity.
Spring. After the winter season, the skin looks dull, tired, with an earthy tint. During this period, it is especially important to carry out a set of measures to restore the protective functions of the epithelium, normalize metabolic processes at the cellular level, stimulate the processes of regeneration and renewal of the dermis.
Summer. Hyperpigmentation, the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, the aggressive effects of environmental factors - all these are one of the main problems that our skin encounters during this period. An important point in summer care is the selection of cosmetics with sunscreen properties.
Autumn. This season is associated with the period of renewal of the skin, hair, nails, the so-called molting season. During this period, it is effective to resort to deep cleansing and skin renewal procedures.
