The basic stage of care
Most of us do not pay special attention to thoroughly cleansing the skin of make-up. This is one of the most common and biggest mistakes in home skin care. It is best to cleanse the skin of the face twice a day - in the morning and in the evening. Without it, even the best regenerating and rejuvenating cosmetics will become ineffective. Their action will block sebum, foundation or dust remaining on the skin's surface. So what to do to make facial cleansing really effective? First of all, avoid washing your skin with plain soap and tap water. Soap changes the acidity of the skin and destroys its protective layer. On the other hand, water, especially in large cities, is hard and chlorinated, which also has a negative effect on the condition of the skin.
Face cleansing preparations
What to replace water and soap with? For everyday skin cleansing, we should use thermal, boiled or mineral water. We can also use delicate herbal infusions - chamomile or lemon balm. We replace the soap with preparations that create a washing foam. These can be foams, gels or dermatological cubes. The latter contain not only washing ingredients, but also moisturizing and reducing irritation. We can also clean the face skin without using water - in this case, we can use milk or cream to remove makeup. On the other hand, moist make-up removal wipes will be a good solution when traveling or in the office. However, you should be careful when using them, because you need to rub the skin with them for a long time. For this reason, they are not recommended for people with sensitive skin.
The final stage of cleansing should be the use of a tonic. This preparation moisturizes, tightens the pores and strengthens the protective layer of the epidermis. Such a cleansed skin will be ready to receive the nourishing ingredients contained in creams or masks.
