May turned out to be warm in summer, but we are waiting for the real heat ahead of us. Every season our skin needs to be adjusted for beauty routine, but summer is a special test for our body. What measures should be taken to prevent skin from being affected by temperature changes?
First, we’ll figure out what exactly is happening. The high temperature provokes the evaporation of moisture. Including from the body. As a result – dehydration. The skin begins to dry, resulting in more sebum (sebum). Since the skin can not generate moisture, it compensates for its deficiency by the release of fat. Clogged pores, oily skin and acne become a logical consequence of a lack of moisture.
To avoid dehydration of the skin, more moisture is needed. How to do it? Naturally, go to a moisturizer. But this is not enough. Double the dose of moisturizing for the skin, including in your routine moisturizing serum or essence. Begin skin care with a mild cleansing. Give up the gels that dry the skin, in favor of pens and mousses. After cleansing, spray on the face of the mist. On still wet face, apply serum or essence, and then cream.
In day care, give preference to light textures so that the skin can breathe. In the evening care you can use cosmetic oils. A couple of drops of oil will not weight the care, but, on the contrary, help the skin to retain moisture. Oils restore hydrolipid balance, which allows the skin not to generate excess sebum to eliminate dryness.
Two or three times a week, do moisturizing face masks. Leave the mask as an SOS agent, allow the skin to be soaked with moisture from cream and gel facial masks. Apply a mask on a damp face in accordance with the instructions. Within 10-20 minutes, the skin will absorb as much as it needs. Remove the remainder of the mask with a damp cotton pad. After the mask, apply your usual care. The mask, except for a night cream mask, is not a replacement for serum and face cream.
Once a week gently exfoliate the skin to avoid clogged pores. It is recommended to remove makeup with hydrophilic oil. It dissolves frozen on the skin sebum and does not dry the skin.
Do not forget to protect yourself from the sun. This is especially important. Do not use a face cream with a sun protection factor. The fact that the face cream, as a means for care, should be completely absorbed into the skin. While sunscreen should create a “screen” on the skin for protection, that is, stay on the surface. Apply sunscreen after the ritual care, or choose a tonal with a protective factor. Remember that combining two products with a sun protection factor, for example sunscreen and foundation, does not enhance the degree of protection, but, on the contrary, make it roughly average between the two indicators. And if you use powder with a sun protection factor, then update the cover before each exit to the street or every 2-3 hours, if you spend the whole day outdoors.
