7 Steps To Follow For Perfect Facial Cleansing
We have all heard on one occasion that ‘you look bad’ when we have had a bad night or we have been sick. This is because the skin reflects all our emotions, so it is necessary to have a daily beauty routine that improves the appearance of the face. According to a study conducted by More Dermatology , 35.4% of Spanish women declare having sensitive skin . Environmental factors, as well as lifestyle habits (diet, hygiene, stress …) accentuate the sensitivity of the skin. Therefore, all care that we apply to the dermis is necessary and beneficial.
A clean face requires time and dedication, but the results are visible from the start. It is recommended that the process is done by an expert who knows how to treat each type of skin and knows the products that can work best for you. However, there are a series of steps that we can carry out at home once a month and that will keep the impurities at bay until we can visit a specialist.
- Make-up remover
It is the first and most important step. The remains of makeup, pollution and fat that our body segregates accumulate on the surface of the face and prevent it from looking good. In addition, they are responsible for premature aging and the appearance of granites. Therefore, it is essential to wash the face with a specific gel to remove dirt from the skin or, failing that, with water and neutral soap. If it can be done with cold water to stimulate circulation and blood flow, much better.
Applying steam to the face for 10 to 15 minutes will help open the pores for subsequent cleaning. This step, despite not being fundamental, will contribute to make the removal of imperfections easier and less annoying.
Exfoliation is the process in which impurities are removed from the skin, for this we will need a specific brush for facial cleansing, as well as a granulated exfoliating gel. Exfoliation is important, but do not abuse it because it can be counterproductive. Depending on the skin type, it will be done in a period of time or others (sensitive skin every 15 days, mixed skin every week and fats twice a week).
- Remove the black points.
This step is the most annoying of all but, still, it is necessary. It involves removing with your hands the pores that the exfoliation could not remove. Gently and without applying too much pressure they can be extracted perfectly, since the steam will have opened and softened them.
After intensive cleaning it is time to recover the skin and give it an extra pampering. The first will be to apply a mask for five or ten minutes. There are many types depending on the type of skin or the purpose sought. In these cases it is best to apply a moisturizer or regenerative so that the dermis recovers after the sweep of imperfections.
We will take advantage of the act of removing the remains of a mask to massage the face. Again it is convenient to do it with cold water to stimulate the muscles of the face. We will do it gently and with circular movements to oxygenate the skin and stimulate the lymphatic system. The massage also helps to close the pores and decongest the facial surface.
It is the last of the regenerative steps and it is about applying the moisturizer that we have as usual. It is advisable to avoid putting on makeup during the twelve hours after cleaning to let all the products have their effect and the pores of the skin to close properly without generating infections. From the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology advise to moisturize the skin daily and several times a day, which is not a process that we should only carry out after cleaning.
This process will keep our good face for some time, but it does not prevent us from having to visit a specialist at least once a year. It is important to look for a trustworthy establishment in which we are treated by professionals in the sector and who, apart from treating our face, deal with other parts of the body.
One option is hotels with spa, where we can get a massage or undergo a treatment, such as AR Hotels & Resorts , which has a large team of specialists who will find the best solution and treatment for you and your skin.
