Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool. Today we going talk about, how to perform exfoliation at home, by using beauty- tools.
Harmful habits in the field of cosmetology can lie in two planes: either it is hypertrophied care of your face (reduced to the desire to try every new product), or “wrong” care: for example, to squeeze pimples. Truly harmful and unhygienic addiction! To fight acne and inflammations on the face can be with the help of cleaning – manual or with gadgets. For effective results, mechanical cleaning is combined with gadgets and chemically clean. Here, we going to introduce you to some very useful tools with which you can clean your skin safely.
First, let’s talk about brushes:
It is believed that cosmetologists are against the brushes for the face, but in general, NO, if you use brushes correctly.
You need to understand that the brush is needed to remove:
Dead skin cells and Products of sebaceous and sweat glands. However, some brushes can be used to massage your skin and reduce fine lines.
USE the brush without fanaticism, so as not to damage the dermis and the lipid layer of the skin, do not injure the capillaries, otherwise you can get the opposite result. For the same reasons, the brush should not be used more than once a week.
It is not necessary to press on the brush, act delicately, touching the skin only with the tips of the bristles, in circular movements, along the massage lines.
DO NOT use the brush if you have thin, sensitive, irritated skin, or acne. In case of any inflammations, the brush should also be put aside so as not to spread the inflammation over the entire face.
HYGIENE: brush – a thing of individual use, so do not share a brush with mom, daughters, girlfriends, better get an additional removable brush-head. Before use and after use – wash your brush with soap.
Verdict: brush – a necessary and useful thing, but in moderate doses.
Vacuum face cleaning
Slightly more advanced phenomenon – vacuum cleansing of the face. However, the approach remained the same: the acne must be “lured” to the surface. This is done with the help of a special devices, which literally “sucks” in itself all the pollution. The only trouble is that the vacuum method is also a stress on the skin.
DO NOT perform vacuum cleaning of the face on the day before the important event: otherwise your skin will show all shades of pink, despite all of the soothing masks you will use after it. You can only enjoy the effect of vacuum cleaning only the next day.
Ultrasonic Facial Cleansing
Ultrasonic Facial Cleansing (sometimes called ultrasound peeling) is more superficial, but less traumatic. It can be used as a preventive procedure or combined with another type of cleaning. The action of ultrasound is aimed at destroying everything that is superfluous by high-frequency vibrations. In this way, cornified cells are evacuated, acne is partially eliminated, fine wrinkles are smoothed. By the way, ultrasonic cleaning is great for the skin that starting to fade.
WHAT CLEANSING METHOD SUITS YOU?
Cleansing should be chosen depending on the type and sensitivity of the skin. The thinner and softer the skin, the softer you need to deal with it. Today, the most effective is considered a comprehensive cleaning, combining chemical with any other – mechanical, vacuum or ultrasonic.
Strictly speaking, any skin cleaning procedure is a collection of services. It must necessarily combine makeup removal, the expansion of pores and the softening of comedones, proper cleaning, massage, soothing mask and application of the cream.
HOW OFTEN TO CLEAN?
