Makeup removal in the dark
It’s time for the first cosmetic resolutions. Once the New Year’s Eve fun is over, you will only dream of going to bed. Wait a minute… Your first New Year’s resolution should be – I always wash off my makeup before going to bed. Makeup removal is the most important point in facial care. Dust, sweat and sebum from the day collect on our face and clog our pores, and the result of such neglect is pimples and blackheads, so be sure to get rid of the impurities. Makeup that is with us 24 hours a day irritates our skin, making it red and itchy. During your evening ritual, you should also remember to thoroughly remove eye makeup, for which you should use products designed for this purpose – the skin on the eyelid is very delicate and easily irritated.
Thorough facial cleansing, not just in the evening, is the first step on the road to a beautiful complexion. The right gel, toner and cream are essential, but you can invest in additional accessories, such as a facial cleansing brush that thoroughly cleanses, but also relaxes the complexion.
It’s a good idea to have regular treatments with a beautician to professionally cleanse the skin and make it look better. Cavitation peeling and microdemabrasion are the most popular, but it is advisable to be guided by individual needs and ask a beautician about the right treatment for our skin.
The perfect foundation
Cosmetic resolutions expand by an extra point! The search for the perfect foundation sometimes takes years. In the New Year, find a cosmetic that perfectly suits your skin requirements and don’t make last year’s mistakes. First of all, always check the color of your foundation at the jawline. This will help you avoid the “mask effect”. If you have the opportunity then test the foundation in daylight, because it never “cheats”.
It’s also worth asking a beauty consultant for a sample of foundation – your face will have a chance to spend a whole day with the potential purchase, and you’ll see if it meets your expectations. If you have trouble choosing a color, always opt for a lighter one. Primers very often oxidize, as a result, they darken on the face, so that the next primer may end up in the trash. But the most important rule of thumb is – the ideal foundation is one that you can’t see on your face.
Skin forever young
With each New Year, an additional number appears in your metric. However, you certainly do not want to add years and more wrinkles and are looking for a recipe for a youthful appearance. The answer is simple – protect your skin from the sun. If you want to enjoy a youthful-looking complexion for years to come, you should remember to apply sunscreen and foundation daily, which will further protect you from sunburn or skin cancer. Follow the example of Asian women and protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays even on cloudy days!
Do your makeup bag order regularly, not just in the spring. Start by grouping them into nail polish, lipstick, shadow, etc. With a critical eye, evaluate them in terms of the prevailing fashion and expiration date, subject them to selection into those that will immediately end up in the trash and those that you will recycle. Give a shadow you’ve only used once to your sister, and use a lipstick you don’t necessarily like on your lips as a blush on your cheeks – look for alternative uses for cosmetics that haven’t necessarily served their purpose. At the very end, wash your makeup bag, wash all your brushes, and you will see that makeup will give you more pleasure. Often when creating our cosmetic resolutions we forget the importance of cleanliness!
Seemingly your hand cream is always in your sight, but you only reach for it when your hands are already in a critical state. In 2016, make a habit of moisturizing your hands regularly. After contact with water they are dry, when you treat them with detergents they are irritated, and when you expose them to UV radiation without protection they age faster. What can you do for them? Once in a while treat them to a spa treatment, which consists of a scrub, mask, massage and paraffin treatment in sequence, and at the very end give them a manicure. After all, your hands are your business card!
Water for the body
Cosmetic resolutions could not happen without this step! The wise say that water is the best cosmetic, and they are very right. Skin care from the inside is as important as taking care of the epidermis. Optimally hydrated skin is hydrated between 20% and 30%, while if the water level is between 10% and 20%, you will end up with flaking, burning and the first wrinkles. Clinical studies have shown the beautifying effects of water. Consuming 1 liter of good quality mineral water per day for 42 days increases skin hydration by 14%. In addition to its undeniable effect on the appearance of our skin, water helps flush out toxins from the body and harmful metabolic products.
A bath for the hair
Is washing your hair every day part of your schedule? Cosmetic resolutions clearly state to curb this habit and restore balance to the hair. Dermatologists agree that it is advisable to wash the hair every other day to allow it to become slightly oily. Sebum is a natural cosmetic, besides being our own DNA. Daily washing of the hair, such as in warm water, causes increased sebum secretion, as a result, the hair needs to be refreshed up to twice a day, which strips it of its natural protective layer. Beautiful and healthy-looking hair is also due to a good haircut, so be sure to visit your hairdresser regularly.
Lips for show
Cosmetic resolutions also apply to your lips! Lipstick in the bag, lotion on the desk and Vaseline in the coat pocket. Keep your lips moisturized in the New Year and they will never be chapped or cracked again. Beautiful and full lips are very sensual and eye-catching, but they begin to age at 25. year of age. To keep them looking appetizing for longer, use lotions and lipsticks daily. Take special care of them once in a while – make a scrub, a mask or massage them with a vitamin A+E capsule.
A dreamy ending
Possibly the longest treatment you’ve ever undergone… Sleep. Just 8 hours of sleep is a shot of youth for your body. At night, the skin’s cellular renewal is at its most intense, a time of regeneration, soothing irritation, blemishes and micro-damage. Already after midnight, the process of epidermal cell division begins and toxins are removed. If you don’t get enough sleep, your body will increase levels of cortisol, the stress hormone that is responsible for sagging skin and the formation of discoloration and wrinkles.
We hope that our cosmetic resolutions will show you the way in your quest for perfection.
