Home remedy skin care: 10 Surprising Causes of Dry Skin


10 Surprising Causes of Dry Skin

1. Fragrance Has the Potential to Cause Skin Irritation

“Fragrance has a tendency to irritate dry skin or make it worse, so avoid deodorants and skin-care products that are filled with fragrance,” says Amy Forman Taub, MD, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at Northwestern Medicine in Lincolnshire, Illinois. That’s because fragrance is a common source of allergic contact dermatitis. It could take several exposures for the skin to react, or you might see a reaction the very first time, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Check the ingredients list for the word “fragrance,” and remember “fragrance-free” is your friend. Body lotions and creams may do more harm than good when packed with perfumes. Read labels carefully. Lavender oil and other botanical oils have natural preservative properties and are used in cosmetics that may still be labeled “fragrance free.”

2.  Soap May Sap Moisture From the Skin and Scalp

“Many soaps, detergents, and shampoos subtract moisture from your skin and scalp, as they are formulated to remove oil,” says Gretchen Frieling, MD, a board-certified dermatopathologist in Newton, Massachusetts. It’s important to carefully choose face washes, body washes, and laundry detergents. Using only moisturizing body wash is better than a harsh bar soap, says Jeffrey Benabio, MD, a dermatologist at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego. Joel Schlessinger, MD, a dermatologist in Omaha, Nebraska, warns against harsh detergents — and even fabric softeners — if you have dry skin. Instead, look for gentle laundry soaps like Seventh Generation Free and Clear.

3. Genetics Can Affect Your Risk for Dry Skin

Chalk it up to another thing you can blame on your mom and dad: Researchers say that dry skin can be inherited. According to a study, mutations in genes that control the production of the protein filaggrin, which plays a role in forming and hydrating the skin barrier, can cause several skin conditions. People with these mutations, estimated to be about 10 percent of the population, suffer drier skin and have a greater chance of developing eczema. Atopic dermatitis is a common type of eczema.

If you’ve always had dry skin or if it runs in your family, it’s essential that you’re diligent with daily moisturization. “Look for ceramides and lipids in moisturizers, which help build and reinforce the skin barrier,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

4. Hard Water Can Prevent Moisturizers From Absorbing

When tap water contains a high concentration of minerals like magnesium and calcium, it’s known as hard water, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Those minerals can leave a film on skin that causes dryness. “Heavy metals turn the oils on skin into a thick substance that plugs glands, aggravates conditions like acne and rosacea, and prevents moisturizers from being absorbed into the skin,” says Dennis Gross, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon in New York City. Investing in a home filtration system, whether a whole-house treatment or one that attaches to the faucet, can help, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Gross also recommends adding skin-care products that contain vitamins A and C to your routine because they counteract the coating deposited by hard water.

5. Acne Medications and Retinol Speed Skin Cell Turnover, Causing Dryness

Salicylic acid can be great at treating acne, but it may also dry out your skin when you first start using it, according to MedlinePlus. Dryness is a common side effect of retinol, too, and it happens because retinol loosens the connection between cells on the skin’s surface, according to a study published in August 2017 in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. The good news is that you don’t have to give up these skin-care saviors, though cutting down on their use may deliver results without irritation. “Reduce the frequency of use from every day to every other day or so, make sure you choose a gentle cleanser that isn’t compounding the issue, and ask your dermatologist for a less drying prescription if necessary,” Dr. Forman Taub says.

The best frequency will depend on your specific skin type, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Take burning, peeling, and flaking as signs you need to stop using the product, Dr. Frieling says. “This is not something to play guessing games with and use trial and error,” she notes. Schedule an appointment with your dermatologist and bring the product with you so the doctor can evaluate it and make sure it’s right for your skin.

6. Dry Air, Indoors or Out, Can Increase Symptoms of Dry Skin

Sometimes the air inside can be as punishing on your skin as the air outside. Forced air, especially heat, can draw humidity levels down, making skin feel dry and itchy, Frieling says. Luckily, you don’t need to suffer with dry, itchy skin all winter: A humidifier can help restore moisture to the air in your house. It’s best to set yours between 30 and 50 percent humidity, according to the Cleveland Clinic. “Additionally, it’s a good idea to keep a mild — 1 percent — hydrocortisone cream on hand. Use it early if you see signs of chapped or dry skin,” Dr. Schlessinger says. Hydrocortisone, which sometimes requires a prescription, reduces swelling, redness, and itching and helps heal and soothe dry, chapped skin and speed its healing, according to MedlinePlus.

7. Zealous Handwashing Can Lead to Redness and Irritation

“Some people with dry skin just wash their hands constantly,” Forman Taub says. That won’t help the dryness because too much washing can lead to dry, cracked skin, according to Piedmont Healthcare. This can be a big issue for people who work in industries that require frequent handwashing, such as health care. To mitigate the drying effects of your sanitary habit, use lukewarm water (hot water strips your skin’s moisture), avoid alcohol-based soaps, and blot your hands dry instead of rubbing them with a paper towel, according to EveryNurse. Ointments tend to be thicker than moisturizers, so keep an ointment (such as Aquaphor) on hand and apply after each wash.

8. Long, Hot Showers Can Contribute to Skin Dehydration

It might be tempting to stand under the steaming-hot water for an extended period of time, especially during the cold months. But the practice could end up creating issues with your skin. “Taking long and steaming showers or baths can dry out the moisture in your skin,” Frieling says. Marchbein says to limit showers to no more than five minutes and to keep the water temperature warm, not hot. Afterward, apply a moisturizing cream within one minute of getting out of the shower, Marchbein adds. Moisturizers work best on damp skin, according to MedlinePlus.

9. Aging Can Increase Skin Dryness

Dry skin tends to become more of an issue as people get older. The Mayo Clinic notes that adults ages 40 or older are at an increased risk of experiencing dry skin, and it affects about half of the individuals in this age group. “As we get older, our skin produces less oil and gets drier,” Frieling says. For women, it could also be due to the hormone changes associated with menopause, according to Penn Medicine. The fix? Moisturize every day (or multiple times a day if needed), recommends the American Academy of Dermatology. Marchbein says to look for a moisturizer that contains ceramides, humectants (such as hyaluronic acid or glycerin), and petrolatum. These ingredients help replenish lost moisture and quickly repair the skin barrier, she says.

10. Certain Medical Conditions Can Cause Dry Skin

Skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema can make your skin more prone to dryness, Frieling says. But dry skin could also indicate something seemingly unrelated, such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, malnutrition, kidney failure, or Sjögren’s syndrome, according to Harvard Health and Penn Medicine. So how might you know if the dryness is the result of something run-of-the-mill like the weather or something more serious? Frieling says to be on the lookout for inflamed areas, crusting, intense itchiness, hyperpigmentation, and rough, flaky, or scaly patches on the skin and take those as a hint it’s time to visit a doctor. Once you’ve nailed down the root cause for the dryness, your doctor can help you determine the proper treatment.

13 Best DIY Skincare Recipes 2020

Looking to solve your skincare woes with ingredients you have at home? Look no further — we’ve got the ultimate (and easiest) routine with homemade beauty remedies straight from the pros. These DIY fixes “help produce feelings of relaxation and tranquility, similar to that of a spa treatment but in the comfort of your own home,” says Arelli Soriano, spa manager at Grand Residences Riviera Cancun.

From homemade skincare masks to anti-aging skincare including scrubs, soaks and more, your face, body, lips, and even feet will look and feel better than ever with these at-home beauty fixes.


Anti-Aging Cocoa Face Mask

A decadent, antioxidant-packed cocoa mask replenishes moisture and gives skin a restored, youthful appearance. “As skin ages, the moisture barrier begins to break down leading to dryness and the immunity layer of the skin weakens,” says skincare expert Jasmina Aganovic. “Hydration is the most important skin saver at this stage!”

Recipe: Combine 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 tablespoon honey, and one egg white. Apply to face and let dry before rinsing. The powerful ingredients make this a multi-tasking wonder-cream: Sour cream is a form of lactic acid that hydrates as it gently exfoliates; honey is a humectant that also boosts hydration while the protein in the egg white tightens and firms skin.


Nourishing Milk Hand Soak

Debra Jaliman, M.D., New York City dermatologist, recommends a warm milk soak to soften hard-working hands.

Recipe: Heat 2 to 3 cups whole milk (enough to completely submerge both hands) in the microwave until it’s warm. Pour into a bowl and let hands soak for five to 10 minutes, allowing the fat from the milk to hydrate, and vitamins A and E to nourish dry skin.


Clarifying Oat Face Mask

Regulate skin’s pH with apple cider’s high levels of alpha-hydroxy acids and remove excess oil and buildup with ground oats. The oats contain saponins, a naturally powerful cleanser, Aganovic says.

Recipe: Combine 3 teaspoons ground oats and ¼ teaspoon apple cider in a bowl until a smooth paste forms. Then add ¼ tablespoon lemon juice and ½ tablespoon brown sugar; stir until the mixture is even. Apply to freshly cleansed skin and let sit for five to 10 minutes, allowing ingredients to penetrate top layers of the skin. Then rub in circular motions to exfoliate and increase blood-flow. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel.


Brightening Blueberry Face Mask

Detox your face with a soothing berry mask. Antioxidants in blueberries protect against free radicals and repair previous damage while vitamin C from lemons brightens skin, Aganovic explains.

Recipe: Combine 1 tablespoon crushed ripe blueberries, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon cucumber juice, 2 tablespoons baking soda, and 2 tablespoons water; spread onto face. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Gently rinse with hands and warm water.


Coconut Oil Cuticle Hydrator

Skincare expert Megan Brame-Finkelstein turns to coconut oil for extra nourishment on dry cuticles. The heavy oil provides long-lasting moisture. Simply rub a small amount on each fingertip and swath with plastic wrap to let it sink in.


Exfoliating Baking Soda Foot Soak

A simple foot soak of baking soda and water will do the trick, Dr. Jaliman says. “The baking soda treats calluses because it’s abrasive and helps loosen dead skin,” she explains.

Recipe: Add a ratio of ½ cup baking soda for every gallon of warm water in a shallow tub and stir until the powder dissolves. Sit back and relax, soaking feet for about 30 minutes. Rinse away the baking soda and pat feet dry before applying foot cream and slipping on a pair of cotton socks.


Acne-Fighting Tea Leaves Face Toner

Cook up a soothing white tea toner with Asian-influenced ingredients, courtesy of Jennifer Yen, creator of Purlisse Skincare collection. Healthy skin starts from the inside out, and drinking a simple mix of water with lemon will kick start the beautifying effects, she says.

Recipe: Combine 1 teaspoon peppermint tea leaves, 4 teaspoons white tea leaves, ½ cup boiled distilled water, and 2 drops of lavender oil in a French press. Let steep for 10 minutes before pouring into a glass container to cool. Combine with enough aloe vera gel to fill a 4-oz spray bottle atomizer. Store in the refrigerator before spritzing.


Detoxifying Rice Ginger Body Scrub

Whip up a big batch of this Asian-inspired body smoother from Yen with a blend of textures strong enough to slough off any and all dead skin to reveal smooth, radiant legs and arms. Coconut milk is loaded with hydrating, healthy fats and the ginger decreases inflammation and detoxifies skin. “The rice grains make a great natural exfoliant,” Yen explains. “The starch from the rice helps soothe damaged and irritated skin.

Recipe: Mix together ½ cup ground rice (grind in a blender), ½ cup coconut milk, ¼ cup brown sugar, and 1½ tablespoon ground ginger to form a paste. Use hands to rub mixture in a circular motion all over. After a few minutes, the scrub will polish the entire body.


Smoothing Honey Lip Scrub

Stir together these lip-savers from Beverly Hills aesthetician Gina Marí for the perfect pout — scrubs aren’t reserved for the face or body.

Recipe: Combine 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon raw honey, 2 tablespoons raw sugar, and a dash of lemon juice in a small bowl. Apply mixture with a new toothbrush in a gentle circular motion. Rinse off and follow up with your favorite lip balm. Not a lemon fan? Marí also recommends a mixture of 2 to 3 tablespoons of crumbled oats, 1 teaspoon honey, ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar, and one drop of tea tree oil.


Wrinkle-Fighting Papaya Face Mask

Yen’s secret recipe for ageless skin is her grandmother’s mask made with fresh papaya, Greek yogurt, and other nutritious ingredients. She recommends applying your usual face moisturizer after rinsing. The alpha-hydroxy acids in papaya works as a natural exfoliator; the egg whites are high in protein and help rebuild skin and tighten pores.

Recipe: Blend ½ of a fresh papaya (seeds removed and diced), 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon white tea (brewed and cooled), 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, and one organic egg white in a food processor (or use a fork) until it forms a paste. Apply to face and neck; relax for 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.


Exfoliating Sugar Face Scrub

Sweeten up your at-home beauty routine with a honey and sugar face scrub. “This homemade exfoliant helps to nourish skin while sloughing off dead cells,” says Arelli Soriano, spa manager at Grand Residences Riviera Cancun. If you have sensitive skin, skip this recipe: Sugar can be too harsh.

Recipe: Mix 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3 tablespoons of honey in a small bowl and stir until a thick paste forms. Add two tablespoons of an oil of your choice (olive, almond, or coconut) and blend until it integrates with the paste to make it a little lighter. Spread the paste all over clean skin — your face, neck, and decollete. Leave it on for five to 10 minutes and rinse with warm water. You can use any leftover scrub on the body for the same effect.


Soothing Aloe Face Mask

Aloe vera is good for more than just a sunburn: “It is full of skin-saving benefits. The powerful plant is composed of anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and moisturizing properties to leave skin feeling soft and looking radiant,” says Ximena Pompa, spa director at Sofitel Mexico City Reforma. Using aloe vera in a face mask can calm irritated skin and also have a plumping and glowing-boosting effect.

Recipe: Mix 1/2 tablespoon of almond milk with one tablespoon of brown sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add four tablespoons (approximately) of aloe vera juice or gel. Apply the mixture onto your face, let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes and remove with warm water and a soft towel.


Depuffing Cucumber Eye Mask

Create a spa-like environment—and look well-rested at the same time— with a DIY cucumber mask from Vance Soto, president & owner of OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa. “Grating the cucumber will release the active enzymes,” Soto says. “This eye mask will help with puffiness and allergies, as it calms and soothes this delicate area of the skin.”

Recipe: Take a cold cucumber and grate it over a paper towel on top of a plate. Once you’ve finished grating, wrap the pieces like a burrito and compress it. Rest your head back and apply onto closed eyes for an instant soothing effect.

8 Home Remedies For Clear Skin That Are Natural & Cheap

When it comes to good skin, there are tons of face washes and moisturizers that claim to do the trick, but not everyone can spend a pretty fortune on a trove of products. Luckily, you can instead opt for what’s sitting in your medicine cabinet or pantry and use home remedies for clear skin. Some natural products that you already may have at home can do the job just as well as a fancy face wash, and it can’t hurt to try these solutions first, as they are natural and won’t cost you a dime.

“For some people, their skin isn’t that bad and doesn’t require a dermatologist,” dermatologist Debra Jaliman tells Bustle over email. “Home remedies are simple and inexpensive.

Of course, if you have severe or persistent acne, it’s always best to visit a dermatologist to figure out the best course of treatment for you. But if you’ve got a pimple or two that pops up here and there, you may just want to open a cabinet instead of taking a trip to the doctor’s office.

If you want to clear up your skin without any medications or special creams, try these 8 natural remedies that you likely already have at home.

1. Tea Tree Oil

Tea trea oil smells like a dream, and can do a lot of good for your skin. A study from the Journal of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology found that topical products containing 5% tea tree oil were effective at treating mild to moderate acne. Those treated with tea tree oil-infused gel were up to five times more likely to experience a reduction in acne than those treated with a placebo product.

As Jaliman explains, “tea tree oil contains anti-microbial properties.

2. Green Tea Extract

Green tea isn’t just for drinking to get zen. It also can calm your skin. Frey says studies have shown applying products with 2% green tea extract twice a day reduced acne in adolescents with mild acne. Plus, green tea contains antioxidants that can help protect against skin issues like acne while fight against free radicals, according to WebMD.

3. Aloe Vera

Your aloe house plant isn’t just good for soothing sunburns — it can help clear up acne as well. Skin care products with high percentages of aloe as an active ingredient has been clinically proven to improve skin appearance in patients, according to dermatologists.

“A study on 60 acne patients who were also using tretinoin ( a prescription anti-acne medication) fared better when they also applied 50% aloe vera gel for eight weeks compared to those who used tretinoin alone,” says dermatologist Fayne L. Frey, MD, FAAD.

4. Honey

Honey is a humectant, which means it has properties that can help lock in skin moisture. In addition, the yummy treat can also prevent breakouts and infections from bacteria, as it also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, according to Livestrong.

All around honey is a pretty sweet skin care ingredient to help soothe your skin, especially when used in a moisturizing routine or as a face mask.

5. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is known for being a great leg moisturizer, so why not apply the same philosophy to your face? But be careful — this recommendation is not one size fits all, according to derms.

“Coconut oil is a wonderful treatment for dry irritated skin and eczema on the body, but it can cause blocked pores on the face,” says dermatologist Heather D. Rogers, MD over email.

If you have dry skin or the conditions mentioned, you can try coconut oil to moisturize your face. If you are more sensitive, however, you might want to stick to only using it on the rest of your body where clogged pores aren’t so common.

6. Castor Oil

If you want an oil with a little less risk, try castor oil. This oil, known for aiding in long, healthy hair, can also be ideal for your skin.

“Castor oil is less likely to cause blocked pores, as it can be used a gentle oil cleanser or eye make remover,” says Rogers.

Castor oil contains a compound called undercylenic acid, which helps to disinfect the skin and rid bacteria that cause skin conditions such as acne, says Livestrong. With both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, castor oil could be your new skin care go-to.

7. Aspirin

If your skin is giving you a headache, turn to asprin for some relief. Aspirin’s active ingredient, acetyl salicylic acid, has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that help treat pimples, according to Medical Daily.

Applying aspirin topically can can reduce swelling, unclog pores, and even soften your skin. To apply to pimples, try crushing a capsule and adding a few drops of water to make a paste. Dip a Q-tip in to the newly created ointment and apply as needed. Easy as pie.

8. Chamomile

Here’s another tea ingredient that can double as a skin care savior. Chamomile is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and mild astringent, according to a review published in the Molecular Medicine Reports. Chamomile is especially used in skin care to treat inflammations of the skin through topical creams and oils.

Although most of these at-home remedies are mild, Frey cautions to test a small area of skin before applying any new to a large, sensitive area. Here’s hoping one of these home remedies can help save your skin.

10 Essential Skin Care Tips That You Should Follow This Summer

10 Amazing Ways To Keep Your Hair Healthy In Summers

10 Homemade Natural Skin Care Recipes

Store-bought skin care products are loaded with chemicals and can be downright expensive. Make these 10 homemade natural skin care recipes instead.

You don’t have to fork out big bucks for great skin care. In fact, many department-store and drugstore brands of skin care products are packed full of harsh chemicals, toxic ingredients, artificial colors and more. Even so-called natural skin care brands may contain questionable ingredients that you wouldn’t want on your face.

Want to look up the safety of your skin care products? Check out Environmental Working Group (EWG)’s Skin Deep database. It has the ingredients list and potential toxins of more than 68,000 personal care products.

I checked on a few products that I used to use for anti-wrinkle skin care and was floored to see the results. Most of the products ranged in the 5-6 range out of a total 10 (with 10 at the highest level of potential hazards and toxins). That’s troubling to consider.

Luckily, I’ve learned to make my own skin care products. It’s easy with products you already have in your bathroom and pantry. In fact, here are 10 natural skin care recipes that can replace an entire skin care regime you’d probably pay a fortune for at a department store.

10 DIY Skin Care Recipes You Can Easily Make

Forget the harsh cleansers. Try this Foaming Face Wash. It’s gentle, yet effective in keeping skin clean and clear.

2. Facial Scrub

I can’t believe how much I used to shell out for toners. This DIY Facial Toner will literally cost you pennies and it’s hydrating, pH balanced and excellent for blemish-prone and combination skin.

5. Eye Cream

An effective eye cream doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Try this DIY Eye Cream to hydrate the eye area and fight wrinkles.

6. Moisturizer

Forget everything you know about moisturizers. Oil-free facial lotions can actually make the skin produce MORE oil than regular moisturizers or even facial oils. I have combination and blemish-prone skin, yet I absolutely LOVE this DIY Facial Oil Moisturizer with Sunscreen. It’s hydrating, but not oily – plus the addition of essential oils help to fight blemishes and fade sun spots. Here’s another Homemade Facial Lotion recipe.

7. Lip Balm

Think about how much you pay for lip balm. $2-4 for a tube doesn’t sound too expensive, right? You can actually make your own Organic DIY Lip Balm for Just $0.24 a Tube.

8. Facial Serum

Department-store brand facial serums are expensive – sometimes upwards of $50-$100 per bottle. Nourish skin naturally with this DIY facial serum. It costs pennies to make and includes just a few simple ingredients.

How to Choose the Right Container for Your DIY Skin Care

Not only is it great fun to choose gorgeous packaging for your homemade skincare, but the right container can also help keep your formula safe and stable for longer. In fact, it’s important to store your homemade skincare in proper, hygienic containers. Luckily there are lots of great packaging suppliers online who will send you containers that are ready to use for your beautiful botanical formulations.

It is easier to contaminate a product that is in an open jar than one dispensed from an air-tight container. When possible, choose pump or spray valves that dispense your formula without the need to open the product container. If it isn’t practical to use a pump or spray, perhaps because of the viscosity of the product, then you might consider adding a drop dispenser or a spatula to help get the product out of its packaging – and help reduce the likelihood of introducing contamination.

How to Make Natural Skin Care Products Last Longer

As it’s almost impossible to know the likely expiration date of homemade skincare products, one of the best tips is to produce small amounts. Not only does this mean your cream, balm or butter will be the very freshest it can be, but you’ll also get to play around with different ingredients regularly to whip up a fresh batch.

When you’re making anhydrous (no water) products that are suitably packaged to minimize contamination, you can make bigger volumes, but always remember to add an antioxidant such as Vitamin E or Rosemary CO2 extract to slow down product degradation.

With unpreserved, water-based products, its is advised you make single-use doses only when you need them. Microbial growth happens fast, especially given the perfect growing conditions found in room temperature.

Top Tips Natural Skin Care Products

  • Make sure to choose the right containers for your products, open air jars are more prone to contamination.
  • Make in small batches – at least in the beginning – is it can be hard to gauge the shelf life.
  • Try a oil free lotion recipe for particularly dry skin.

20 Amazing Home Remedies For Oily Skin You Should Try Right Now

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

Does your makeup always seem to slide off a couple of hours after applying it? Does your face become oily and greasy a few minutes after washing it?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, you are aware of the daily issues faced by people with oily skin. Sometimes oily skin is nothing short of a nightmare.

Oily skin is a result of excess sebum produced by sebaceous glands located under the surface of the skin. Though this sebum helps to moisturize the skin and keep it healthy, excess amounts of it can engender enlarged pores, a shiny and greasy look, and generally unhealthy skin.

Oily skin can also result in the development of acne that makes people extremely concerned about their appearance. Believe me when I say I get it! I have had raging battles with my oily skin over most of my growing up years. Managing oily skin can be a frustrating experience.

The skin of the face is sensitive to various external influences: sun, wind, cold.That is why it requires constant care. As a result, it loses moisture and becomes rough, loses its natural color and elasticity. To restore natural processes, you need to replenish skin nutrition through the use of various creams and lotions.

Many companies provide various kinds of cosmetics that adapt to different skin types. However, it is necessary to distinguish between an effective effect on the skin and a safe one. Natural face care products have a beneficial effect on the body as a whole.

Skin types

Depending on the skin type, which can change with age, different skin care products need to be used.

Dry skin looks tight and is much more exposed to aging processes. It is rather thin and soft, so it reacts quickly to temperature changes. People with this skin type should use mild, alcohol-free products.

Oily skin is denser and does not require constant moisture. However, sebum has its drawbacks: sweat and dust interact and clog pores, leading to facial irritations and blackheads.However, even this type of skin requires hydration and regular care.

Mixed skin occurs in people with dry areas of skin on the neck, cheeks and around the eyes, while the forehead, chin and nose remain oily. In this case, you need to use cleansers (tonic and milk).

Folk remedies for skin care

Facial skin needs daily care, so cleansing with lotions and peels is a necessary remedy in cases of oily skin and acne.

Various homemade masks and creams are used for moisturizing and nourishing. For any skin type, a salad and sour cream mask is perfect. Chop the lettuce leaves finely and grind, then mix with sour cream. Apply on face and leave for 20 minutes.

90,000 Self-care at home: how to properly take care of your skin, beautician’s advice

Leather is an outfit given to us by nature. Unfortunately, unlike clothing, it cannot be replaced with a new one as soon as it loses its appearance or gets tired.Therefore, it is very important to make every effort to keep her healthy.

The load on the skin is colossal. It participates in metabolic processes, provides heat regulation, protection and many more functions. At the same time, we often unknowingly render her a “disservice”, improper care or bad habits.

Taking care of your skin at home will help reduce external negative influences and maintain your health for a long time. The main thing is to observe three basic principles:

  • perfectly matched skin care products;
  • regularity of procedures;
  • A complex approach;
  • adherence to the correct application technology.

Recommendation 1. Basic rules for home skin care

It is necessary to cleanse the skin in the morning and in the evening. And this applies not only to the face, but also to the body. To do this, remove decorative cosmetics with a sponge and a special tool. Don’t rub.

Next, moisturize your skin with plain water and apply a cleanser. Lather it in a gentle circular motion.One minute is enough for complete removal of the remains of cosmetics and dirt. Rinse off residues with clean water.

Help! For daily use, a regular product is sufficient. Scrubs and aggressive methods don’t need to be used too often.

Applying the toner will help get rid of the residual effects of the cleansing particles and normalize the acidity of the skin, preparing it for hydration.

The last step is to apply a nourishing cream.It is selected depending on the time of day. Apply a small amount of cream with sliding movements along the massage lines. You can slightly stimulate blood circulation by gently patting your skin with your fingertips. After 20-30 minutes, remove the remaining cream with a napkin.

Recommendation 2. Proper nutrition for healthy skin

To have healthy glowing skin, you need to minimize your intake of sweets, fatty foods and junk food (chips, hamburgers, smoked meats).It is better to enrich your diet with plenty of vegetables, natural yoghurts and kefirs. It is also important to replace various drinks with purified still water. It helps to eliminate toxins and makes the body’s work easier.

Recommendation 3. Quitting bad habits contributes to skin health

Addiction to nicotine and alcohol has the most detrimental effect on our skin. And if there is no categorical prohibition on alcohol, then it is better to give up smoking altogether.

With regard to alcohol, quality and quantity must be considered. A glass of good wine will do the trick. The antioxidants contained in it slow down the aging process and improve metabolism. Excess alcohol impairs the work of the vascular system and, accordingly, the blood supply worsens and the skin receives less nutrients than is needed.

Recommendation 4: Choose the Right Products for Home Skin Care

First of all, it is necessary that the chosen care cosmetics correspond to the skin type and age.Manufacturers provide a specific action for each product. Cream 50+ will be an excellent solution for a woman of the appropriate age, but will cause irreparable harm to young skin. It will launch intensive rejuvenation processes that are not needed at this stage. Due to this, the body will run out of reserves ahead of time and after the end of the use of the age-related agent, the skin will begin to age faster.

Don’t go after cheap home-made face and body treatments.Often, the low price hides the lack of nutrients and a large number of chemical components.

Give preference to face and body care products with natural formulations and purchased from trusted stores.

90,000 Home skin care [10 products review]

The answer to the question of why you need facial care seems obvious. Of course, to delay the appearance of wrinkles! However, wrinkles are far from the only problem that prevents us from looking in the mirror with pleasure.Acne, blackheads, enlarged pores, peeling … You can avoid the “vagaries” of the skin only by providing it with proper care: then the oily one will stop shining, and the dry one will not react so sharply to washing with ordinary tap water.

At the same time, the older we get, the more thought-out the exit strategy should become. Of course, no one can win the battle over time, but who would refuse to look five, ten, or even twenty years younger?

In order for facial skin care at home to give visible results, it is important to follow certain rules.Where to begin?


Beauty-excellent students know: skin care has a cumulative effect. Simply put, do not count on flawless skin if yesterday you were smeared with creams from a dozen jars, and today you decided to “take a break”.


Make-up removers are used before the cleansing foam, and the night cream is used after the serum. At the same time, each remedy must be given time, otherwise the valuable components will not have time to be absorbed.

Twice a day

It is necessary to take care of the skin of the face twice a day, but beauty assistants for care at different times of the day differ both in purpose and in composition. For example, a day cream moisturizes and protects against negative environmental factors (including the sun). And the night one is most often aimed at regeneration, nutrition and deeper hydration.

As per instruction

Be sure to read the instructions on all cans and bottles.They will tell you that scrubs are not used during the period of acute inflammation, and the remnants of care cosmetics that have not been absorbed should be carefully removed from the skin with a clean cotton pad.

First of all, be guided by your age and skin type, as well as the composition of the care cosmetics.

First, let’s determine what type of skin you have. This will help you find the right skin care for your face.


  • Feels tight after washing, sometimes peeling.
  • Prone to the appearance of early wrinkles.
  • Has almost invisible pores.

Dry skin needs intense hydration and nutrition: look for powerful humectants and moisturizers.


  • Has enlarged pores, prone to blackheads and acne.
  • Glitters (due to increased sebum secretion).

Oily skin needs matting and cosmetics with sebum-regulating and bactericidal components that will help to avoid rashes.!


  • In the T-zone (nose, forehead, chin) shines and greases, enlarged pores are noticeable.
  • Cheeks may suffer from dryness.

Combination skin needs care that will take into account its peculiarities: for example, multimasking.!


Does not fit any of the descriptions: dryness or acne is the exception rather than the rule for her (at least if you provide her with the right care).!

Normal skin needs care no less than others: first, pick up a good moisturizer.

If you are still in doubt about your skin type, be sure to consult a beautician. Incorrectly selected cosmetics is one of the main causes of skin problems!

It is the ingredients of skin care cosmetics that are the main sponsors of our beauty. What components to look for in the composition?

  • For moisturizing – hyaluronic acid, green tea, grape and sakura extracts, aloe, glycerin.
  • For matting and narrowing of pores – burdock and black tea extracts, grapefruit, clay, black coal.
  • For nutrition – natural oils.
  • For the fight against acne and blackheads – salicylic acid, zinc, eucalyptus extract.
  • For exfoliation – fruit acids, crushed apricot pits.
  • For aging skin – retinol, vitamins A and C, tea polyphenols, shea butter, caffeine, peptides.

All ages are submissive to self-care! The main thing to remember is that the skin has different needs at different ages.

  • 25+ – Intensive moisturizing and SPF products are especially important in facial care, which will protect the skin from photoaging.
  • 35+ – It’s time to fight wrinkles and dull complexion. Look for cosmetics with antioxidants and vitamins.
  • 45+ – Expression wrinkles at this age already turn into permanent ones, bags and dark circles appear under the eyes. Cosmetics with a drainage and lifting effect will help to cope with them.
  • 55+ – In addition to powerful lifting and drainage, the skin needs to be helped in the fight against age spots, deep wrinkles and dryness.

Complex skin care (and you need just this one) includes several stages:

The skin is cleansed twice a day. In the evening at home, we remove from the face the remnants of cosmetics and impurities that have accumulated in the pores during the day, and in the morning we remove the excess sebum that the skin has released during the night.

  • In the morning, washing is enough: for dry and sensitive skin, a gentle Garnier cream-gel for face “Basic care” with rose water is suitable, and for oily, problematic and combined – Garnier cleansing gel “Clean skin”.It not only removes impurities, but also mattifies the skin and also tightens pores, fights blackheads and prevents acne.

Skin Care After 35: Beautician Tips

How to take care of your skin after 35 years?

What to look for, how to prolong youth and have a blooming appearance? Alyona Olegovna Bogdanova, a cosmetologist at the Semeynaya clinic in Ryazan, talks about the peculiarities of taking care of your appearance at this age.

After 35 years, skin care should become more thorough and targeted. It may already be not enough to simply cleanse and moisturize, because at this age the skin begins to lose elasticity, becomes more sensitive or dry, wrinkles, pigmentation appear on it, and the complexion may become dull. Of course, a lot depends on the lifestyle: smoking, stress, unhealthy diet leave their negative mark on the skin, while women who adhere to moderation in their diet, go in for sports, observe a sleep schedule look much better than representatives of their age group.Nevertheless, whatever the circumstances, it is in your power to restore energy to the skin, prolong its youth as much as possible and maintain a fresh, attractive appearance. Remember that skin condition is associated with a woman’s hormonal balance, and at 35-40 years old it is usually still in order, which means that the skin can look great with proper home and professional care.

Routine procedures

As before, do not forget about daily cleansing – morning and evening.Give preference to mild products that do not tighten the skin, make it not only clean, but smooth as well. Hydrophilic oil does an excellent job with this task: it thoroughly removes make-up and impurities from the skin without damaging it. If you have a tendency to oily, you can use foams for oily or combination skin that do not leave a feeling of dryness and tightness. Do not forget that the top layer of the skin (horny) periodically needs to be exfoliated: for this, use gentle, without coarse particles, peels (with fruit acids), or peeling peels, which are applied to a wet or dry face, and then rolled lightly massage movements.It is better to wash off cosmetics from the eyes with a special product designed specifically for this area. Modern two-phase eye make-up removers remove even the most resistant make-up instantly. Have micellar water handy to help remove any residual makeup. Finish cleansing with a toner for your skin type.

How to Stop Aging

It is a known fact: the skin ages faster if it is dehydrated. Therefore humidification is always the number one task.Only now the composition of your cream should become more saturated and meet the needs of your age. Pay attention to products with hyaluronic acid (this is one of the main natural skin compounds responsible for its moisture, elasticity and youthfulness), collagen responsible for the elastic skin frame, retinol (vitamin A), which provides the strength of collagen and elastin fibers, other vitamins ( C, E), peptides that also preserve youth, etc. Almost all year round it is advisable to use a cream with a sun protection factor of at least 30, since the sun is quite aggressive even in winter, and its direct effect contributes to both faster aging and formation age spots.If you are lost in the abundance of cosmetic products on the shelves and want to choose the most suitable cream for you, contact your doctor-cosmetologist: he will test your skin and advise on the very home care that will benefit you the most.

Attention to the eyes

After the age of 35, special attention should be paid to care of thin skin around the eyes, prone to the formation of expression lines, circles and puffiness. Every day you need to use a cream that tightens, brightens, moisturizes and strengthens this delicate area.Periodically, you can use masks and patches for this area: they quickly relieve fatigue and give a quick effect of an open young look (and with regular use, it is also long-lasting).

Concentrates of youth

Now in your arsenal may appear various serums (active concentrates applied before using the cream), aimed at solving certain problems. So, serums with hyaluronic acid perfectly moisturize, with collagen – they promote elasticity and lifting, with vitamin C – they improve the complexion, with retinol or acids – they renew and brighten the skin.

Professional care

35-45 years – the time when the skin responds gratefully to a variety of manipulations. In the arsenal of modern cosmetology there are many products that can literally work wonders: fill with volume, erase the traces of time, return smoothness and clarity. Every woman can find something for herself that will help her maintain youth.

  • Injection procedures. Now, when autumn is about to come, they are especially relevant: it’s time to restore your skin after summer vacations and sun exposure.Biorevitalization and bioreparation are shown, that is, saturation of the skin with hyaluronic acid preparations, mesotherapy – cocktails based on hyaluronic acid, vitamins and peptides, contour plastics – replenishment of missing facial volumes and correction of wrinkles with fillers based on the same hyaluronic acid. Biorevitalization and mesotherapy are usually carried out in courses consisting of several (at least three) procedures, the exact number of which is determined by the doctor, based on the condition of the skin. The result of the course of procedures is smooth, moisturized, radiant skin.Contour correction – correction of nasolabial folds, nasolacrimal sulcus, cheekbones, chin is performed only once, and the effect lasts for about a year or more.
  • For those who do not accept injections, there are hardware techniques, massage techniques. So, hyaluronic acid can be applied in the form of a gel, and then the skin is treated with ultrasound, microcurrents, laser, etc. The effect from one such procedure lasts up to three weeks, and from a series – much longer.
  • Peelings. Peels used in beauty parlors – acid, almond, salicylic and others – solve various skin problems: they relieve acne, even out the relief, relieve inflammation, eliminate scars, scars and pigmentation. The best time for peeling is autumn and winter.
  • Laser treatments. Manipulations with modern safe laser devices can literally transform the skin.

A few tips
  • Do not use the same cream for years, especially if it has a very active composition. The skin gets used to the components of the cream and stops responding to them. Change your care periodically.
  • It is not necessary to apply the cream in a very thick layer, this will not increase its effectiveness. You need to use very little cream, which should be completely absorbed. The feeling of a film on the face should not be.It is better to remove the excess with a napkin.

  • Before deciding on any procedures, check your health. There are conditions in which injection or laser techniques are contraindicated or will not bring the desired result.
  • Sleep at least 7.30 hours a day, consume fresh vegetables and fruits daily, lead an active lifestyle, drink at least one and a half to two liters of water a day.
