Essential to keep young and beautiful over time.
Wash your face with soap and water is not enough. You need specific products that, in addition to removing impurities, help to eliminate toxins and to re-open clogged pores by smog, makeup and fine dust, which avoid proper tissue oxygenation.
Is it better to opt for a milky or a liquid detergent? Both the formulations are good and suitable for biotype in question. The possibilities are a lot: cleansing milk, micellar water, liquid preparations, etc. In any case it is important to massage the product in question on the skin, to give way and time to cleaners molecules to do their job and “capture” the unwanted substances.
And what about oily skin? In case of seborrheic skin you must avoid harsh cleaners to not run into the so-called rebound effect. In fact, the excessive removal of oil from the hydrolipid film induces increased production of sebum back. It therefore should always use mild detergents, respecting the skin’s ph.
Do you always have to rinse the detergent? Absolutely, it is always best to remove all traces of detergent with water and impurities. Better using thermal water in case of sensitive skin or slightly astringent tonic in case of oily skin.
What about the scrubs? The scrub is a boon for both the skin and body. It normally consists in the suspension of solid granules in an emulsion or a gel. The scrub is massaged with small circular movements in the areas to be treated, in this way you get a deep cleaning, removal of dead cells with accelerated cellular turnover and stimulation of microcirculation. It should be normally used once a week (two in the case of oily or thickened skin) and selected depending on the type of skin. In case of sensitive skin you can prepare a product suitable for mixing a quantity of scrubs with an equal amount of cleansing milk.
What to avoid? It is always best to avoid soaps rich in surfactants which attack the hydro-lipid film and lower the “barrier function” of the skin. The acidic pH of the skin should be respected and neutral pH is so aggressive.
