beautypress gives some tips on how to give your skin a winter wake up.
New year, new skin
The epidermis renews itself every 26 to 28 days. During this time, new skin cells are formed whereas the older ones are chipped off. With its frosty temperatures sub-zero and low humidity, winter puts a strain on the skin, making it look tired and pale, or the exact opposite that the skin gets oily and impure. However, with the help of a facial peeling, you put the renewal process of the skin in the right way: The “gray haze” of dead skin cells and excess sebum is removed. Say hello to a radiant complexion in no time at all! The skin looks refreshed and soft and above all, it feels even and smooth.
There are three types of peelings:
- Mechanic peelings contain exfoliating particles and hence, they are suited for rather insensitive skin types.
- Enzymatic peelings split fats and proteins and this way dissolve cornification. They are ideally suited for impure and sensitive skin.
- Chemical peelings, including fruit acid peelings, have irritating effects and they can change the skin surface structure.When it comes to body care, peeling the skin is an essential part, too.
Neat and clean
Cleansing is the Alpha and Omega for a beautifully clear complexion; especially in the evening. Nevertheless, many women forget about removing the make-up before going to bed. Absolutely a no-go as all of the regeneration processes pass off at night; the skin is recovered and new cells are generated. If instead makeup is clogging the pores, the skin can hardly “breathe”, making it hard to regenerate overnight. This can cause impurities and skin irritation. The same apples to those who don’t even wear makeup: Don’t waive the cleansing routine in the evening since environmental pollutants and dirt have to be removed from the skin on a regular basis.
Less is more
The sun not only enhances the mood but also affects the way the oil glands work: Due to the sunlight’s increasing UV rays, the metabolism is encouraged, the hormonal balance changes and the oil glands produce more sebum. This is the reason why a light moisturizing cream, including UV protection, is a sufficient daily care for normal skin types during the warm months. If desired, a facial tonic can used before applying the day or night care. According to the skin type, it calms the skin or refines the complexion, supports its regeneration and promotes the penetration of the care’s active ingredients.
