Which product is suitable for which type of skin?
There are numerous cleaning products – in addition to the well-known wash gels also balsams, pads, towels – the selection is limitless, just like the confusion when standing in front of the shelf. But there are some basic recommendations for the different types of skin:
Lucky one! When moisture, fat content and skin barrier are in balance, you can use all products without care.
Your skin stretches a few minutes after washing and you also have virtually no visible pores? Then give your skin with a cleaning oil or a milk an extra portion of lipids and thus a rich care.
Is your skin often reddened and itchy? This is a sign of a defective skin barrier, which is best treated with a rich cleansing product without fragrances.
If your skin shines oily a few hours after cleansing, it most likely produces too much sebum. You should remove this with cleaning foam. Basically, the more it foams, the more surfactants the product contains and the more thoroughly it dissolves the tallow from the skin.
Do you need a toner?
The use of a facial water, as the toner is also called, is in any case sensible, because it takes away the rest of the cleaning products and thus ensures a porous clearing of the skin. Calcium-containing water leaves behind residues, which are also removed with a toner. It also restores the skin’s pH, as the cleansing products often attack the skin’s sensitive protective skin. An intact acid protection coat protects against bacteria, fungi and other irritants, which otherwise easily penetrate and irritate the skin.
How often should the face be cleaned?
Many women think that the face does not have to be cleaned in the morning because, after all, it can not get dirty when sleeping at night. This is a misconception! The skin produces at night even more sebum than during the day and should be removed in the morning before any creams and make-up are applied.
In the evening, after the home, it is optimal “the day directly wash off”. Because environmental toxins adhere to sebum and make-up and should not remain on the skin longer than necessary.
Which is the gentlest method to remove eye makeup?
The delicate eye part is thin-skinned and sensitive. Do the same as the Japanese who are known for their gentle cleaning methods: They soak a cotton pad in eye make-up remover and place it on the closed eye for several seconds. As they soften the eyelashes, then carefully pull the cotton pad downwards. Repeat this step simply for a gentle removal of your eye make-up.
Should the facial skin be peeled daily?
Mechanical peels, ie those with the small granules, you should only use once a week. If you have sensitive skin, then even the best is even rarer. This is different with Enzympeelings: You can use this daily. They allow the skin to appear evenly more even after a few days.
What is the ideal cleaning ritual?
Massage your skin with a massage brush. Avoid too hot water as much as possible, as this will damage the skin barrier. Use a toner or Asian as a “softening lotion” that prepares for subsequent care.
Treat yourself to a cleansing ritual with a steam bath that opens the pores every four weeks. Wear a mask followed by peeling and toner. A beautician usually cleans the skin thoroughly every three months.
