Just in time for the beginning of spring, not only should the sun shine, but also our skin! From pore-deep cleansing to skin-type-matched care, beautypress shows how 2018 spring-cleaning can look for the skin.
Dream complexion à la Hollywood
Stars like Madonna, Kate Winslet, Eva Mendes and Beyoncé swear by it: The HydraFacial is an internationally recognized method of gentle skin removal. The facial is considered the stars’ most popular wonder weapon in the fight against wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and a pale complexion. The dead cells are completely removed with the help of a special Hydra Facial device, so that a completely new set of cells on the skin’s surface comes to light – bye bye pale complexion, hello fresh skin!
Covet your Cleanser
No dolla for Hydro? A complexion with star appeal can be obtained with the right facial cleansing. So that the skin can absorb the ingredients of the care products properly and they can better develop their effect, skin must be cleansed and as thoroughly and gently as possible to be freed from all strains and impurities. However, many women forget about removing make-up before going to bed. A faux pas that you simply cannot afford, because at night all regeneration processes are over – and the skin does not forget anything! If make-up clogs the pores, it cannot breathe properly and the regeneration process is disturbed, provoking impurities and irritations. Even those who do not use make-up shouldn’t skip cleansing, as environmental pollutants and dirt must also be removed regularly.
Gentle peeling cure
After winter, skin often appears tired and pale or even greasy. Our skin cells are constantly renewing themselves – it takes just under a month and the top cell layer is renewed. We can help this process with peels that help remove dead skin cells. In addition, peels can protect the skin from impurities and immediately give it new freshness. By roughening the uppermost skin layer, skin becomes more receptive to care products and their ingredients can have a deeper green effect. Blood circulation is stimulated and skin can radiate again.
Using a tonic before day or night care has refreshing and clarifying properties. Depending on the skin type, it soothes or refines the skin, supports its regeneration and promotes the active ingredient penetration of the subsequent care. BB, CC or DD creams are a good alternative to full-on makeup coverage, allowing for a perkier complexion. Using a highlighter or blush can also define your cheeks and give them a rosy glow. As for the body, a little faux tan never goes amiss during the winter/spring transition! Where teeth are concerned – too much red wine over Christmas can seriously affect your smile. Use a whitening toothpaste twice daily to keep on top of stains and imperfections.
Masks: Quick helpers in crisis situations
Sometimes there are situations where normal facial care is simply not enough: from time to time, our skin also experiences crises and is prone to redness, dryness, shiny spots or blemishes. Face masks are the savior in distress! They have a different composition than creams and form a delicate film on the skin, under which forms a moisture and heat accumulation, which promotes blood circulation, opens the pores and thus allows for the product to go deep into the skin. Find a facemask to match your the skin type and the effect you want to achieve with it. Depending on your skin condition and need, facial masks are usually used 1 to 2 times a week. Sera and ampoules are more concentrated, they increase the care effect and are ideal as intensive care or extra care in between. The same goes for hair – a deep conditioning mask and using shine products make lack-luster locks a thing of the past!
