Springtime awakens in us the desire for renewal and our attractiveness. Any cosmetologist will say that how we feel inside, so we look. The internal state plays an important role, but the external aspect should not be ignored. So, how should you take care of yourself in the spring to be a princess?
Several restorative procedures from natural ingredients will help to bring the skin to a well-groomed look.
At the very beginning of spring, in March, a deep peeling should be done. At home, for deep peeling, you will need baby soap and a 5% calcium chloride solution. Important: Do a bend test. Wipe cleansed face with a moistened cotton swab in a solution of calcium chloride. Lather the same tampon with baby soap. When interacting with calcium chloride, abrasive balls are obtained. Apply them to the face with gentle pressure. A tingling sensation may be felt on the skin. After massaging your face a little, leave it on for 5 minutes. Shake off particles and rinse with warm water. Then lubricate your face with moisturizer.
During the winter period, the sebaceous glands are clogged on the skin, and there is an accumulation of dead cells, and, as a result, a dull shade. Rice mask tightens pores and cleanses well. To do this, grind one teaspoon of rice in a coffee grinder, add 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese, and half a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply to face and keep for 15 minutes. Then rinse with water.
Even if the drinking regime is observed, the skin loses a large amount of moisture in winter. Home care products work more slowly than salon products. Therefore, regular care is the key to success. Moisturizing masks will help refresh your skin.
For dry skin:
Honey and milk mask. Mix equal proportions of honey and milk and apply on the face for 15 minutes. Then rinse with water and rub with an ice cube. Instead of milk, you can make kefir or sour cream. This mask has a whitening and toning effect.
Mustard mask. Mix one teaspoon of mustard with one teaspoon of water and two teaspoons of olive or peach oil. Apply on face with a brush for 5-6 minutes and then rinse with water. It is not recommended to keep the mask longer than the specified time and if it burns, rinse immediately with water. The mustard mask not only improves the complexion but also moisturizes the skin and normalizes blood circulation.
For oily skin:
Carrot and apple mask. Grate one apple and one carrot on a fine grater. Apply the mask to cleansed skin for 15 minutes and then rinse with water. The mask moisturizes the skin and removes oiliness.
Apple-milk mask. Cut one apple into small cubes and pour over a glass of milk. Cook until smooth. Then cool and apply on the face for 20 minutes. Then rinse with water. Thanks to fruit acids, the mask exfoliates dead skin particles and moisturizes the skin.
These masks made from natural ingredients will help you acquire healthy skin, which means you will look attractive.
