Only properly cleansed facial skin will look fresh, healthy and beautiful. Lotions and washing here will not help: on the skin will begin to accumulate keratinized cells, and the pores will be clogged with mud. That is why it is so important to carry out deep cleansing of the skin. To do this, you can use purchased cosmetics and cleaning masks at home.
Preliminary cleaning – the first stage of deep cleansing of the skin
For the preliminary cleaning of the skin, it is recommended to prepare a cosmetic product consisting of the following ingredients:
– 2 tsp milk powder;
– a small amount of water;
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon;
– 2 tsp oatmeal.
The components are mixed (water should be added so that the mass is not too thick and very liquid). The cleansing mixture is applied by gentle circular motions on the skin of the face and neck, and after 3-5 minutes are washed with water at room temperature. During this procedure, the skin is cleansed of make-up residues, particles of dirt and sebum.
Steam bath – the second stage of deep skin cleansing
Without a steam bath, deep cleansing of the skin will be impossible, although this procedure is contraindicated in inflammation, vascular "stars", hypersensitivity and other skin problems. For this cosmetic procedure, you will need a herbal elixir that prepares them for such components:
– 2 liters of water;
– 2 st.l. dry grass (chamomile, marigold, mint or other).
Grass is poured hot water, cover the container with the mixture and put the dishes on the fire. Bring the product to a boil and cook for 3-5 minutes, then the pan is removed from the plate, the lid is removed, the head is covered with a towel and the face is held over the steam 7-10 minutes. The face is kept from herbal decoction at a distance of 30-35 cm (if the skin is sensitive, the distance is increased to 40 cm). After this procedure, the steamed skin is wiped with a dry cotton cloth or linen cloth.
The third stage – deep cleansing of the skin
On the steamed skin, a cleansing cosmetic is applied. You can prepare a scrub for this recipe:
– 2-2,5 st.l. honey;
– 2 tsp milk.
Milk is mixed with honey and applied to the face and neck. You can put a fresh cucumber on your eyes. This mask is kept for 8-10 minutes, then washed off with comfortable temperature water and rinsed with cool water.
Skin toning – the fourth stage of deep cleansing
To prepare a cucumber tonic, you need a third of the average size of fresh cucumber. Cucumber rubbed on a fine grater, then from the resulting gruel through a layer of layers folded into several layers squeeze the juice. Cucumber juice is poured into a glass container and covered with a lid. It is recommended to prepare the tonic the day before the expected cleaning of the skin and store in the refrigerator: a cold tonic tones the skin better (apply this cosmetic to the skin with a cotton pad). Store cucumber juice in the refrigerator is recommended no more than 3 days.
The final stage of deep cleansing of the skin is moistening
To moisturize the skin, it is recommended to use vegetable oils: for young skin, jojoba oil is taken, from the age of 30 to 45 years – sweet almond oil, but for mature skin – olive oil. Pour oil on the palm and apply it with light massage movements on the skin of the face. Do not be afraid that oil will clog pores: this will not happen, and as a result of this procedure, the water balance of the skin will be restored.
