In the rhythm of life in a modern city, it is difficult to keep your skin in perfect condition - either lack of sleep, or a poor diet, or simply allergic to dust and gas pollution. Unlike luxury European face products that strive for versatility, Asian brands offer modern girls inexpensive products that are directive and effective. Today we have collected the most common problems that arise for those who are trying to achieve the perfect tone, and compiled a memo on the choice of special care products.
1. Dark circles under the eyes
Why: Excessive fatigue, age, genetic predisposition, eye strain or allergies. The skin becomes dull, dark tissues and blood vessels dilate, and fluid begins to accumulate under the eyes. Cleansing: Use a mild and gentle eye contour, avoid any rubbing of the eyelids, and after removing your makeup with oil products, remember to rinse your skin thoroughly. Care: If your body produces too much melanin - the pigment that gives the skin its bright color - then the pigmentation around the eyes increases. Choose eye products with sunscreen and keep the area moisturized regularly. Apply cooling compresses from time to time to shrink blood vessels. Store special eye patches in the refrigerator, which will not only help restore the circulatory system, but also moisturize and nourish the skin with vitamins. Makeup: Use brightening concealers and special primers around the eyes before applying foundation and mattifying powders. Avoid using shimmery eyeshadow in the under eye area.
2. Scars and acne
Why: Scars are the result of surgery, trauma, or severe acne that occurs with a lack of collagen and elastin. Cleansing: Even old scars can be reduced with regular use of collagen stimulants. Choose products with vitamin C, aloe juice, soy extracts and other substances that activate metabolic processes. Treatment: add regeneration serums containing caffeine, propolis, phenzel to your treatment. Make sure that the skin in damaged areas is maximally hydrated, and do not neglect additional procedures throughout the day. Make-up: choose combination foundations that not only hide serious skin imperfections, but also help enhance skin regeneration. Pay attention also to the fact that sun protection is indicated in the composition - UV rays exacerbate recovery.
3. Enlarged pores
Why: If you regularly use products for oily skin, this is most likely what causes the pores to expand more and more. Active ingredients like salicylic acid remove the top layers of the skin, causing a dry effect and forcing the sebaceous glands to work harder, producing even more oils to replenish lost moisture. Cleansing: Find a gel-based cleanser. If you are worried about excessive inflammation, try exfoliation with acid peels. Care: use serum with hyaluronic acid, which can even out the skin's hydrobalance, stimulate collagen production, and also protect the skin from free radicals. Makeup: In your makeup, be sure to use a special primer for grouting pores and avoid applying foundation or powder to dry skin.
Why: Excessive sebum production, clogging pores, fungal infections, hormonal imbalance. Cleansing: Cleanse with salicylic acid or deep cleansing peels. Do not use scrubs or any other means that lead to mechanical damage to skin cells. Care: Choose products with anti-inflammatory properties such as tea tree oil, aloe or allantoin. Makeup: Before applying foundation, use special corrective products with a green tint to help hide redness. Make sure they also contain anti-inflammatory and moisturizing ingredients.
5. Pale skin
Why: Dull skin conditions can cause insufficient exfoliation, leading to a lack of oxygen in the cells, as well as fatigue and lack of nutrients in the body. Cleansing: use exfoliant products that stimulate oxygen exchange in cells, slow down oxidative processes and neutralize the effects of free radicals, as well as micellar tonics that revitalize the complexion. Treatment: Add tonics and serums to your daily routine to stimulate elastin production and retain moisture in the cells. Makeup: For a natural glow, use a primer with reflective particles and a glossy foundation.
