Spring goes – spring road! Our skin in the first rays of the sun. Part 1
Spring as the state of the soul and body is always a joyful event, so I want to look not just good, and dazzling. Unfortunately, the skin for the "Winter Hibernation period" tired and does not always justify our expectations. Spring skin requires particularly careful care and protection.
Most of all in spring skin suffers from excessive dryness, inherited from winter days. In winter, even bold skin becomes more dry. The impact of cold temperatures together with cold winds is a certain minus of winter, but more negatively affects our skin … heating.
Several times a day Throughout the cold period, the skin is forced to adapt to the sharp difference of temperature and humidity. As a result, at the end of winter, we have "tired", pale skin, uneven grayish complexion, excessive dryness, surface wrinkles and dehydration. The skin does not just look bad – it changes the structurally, the top layer of the skin – the epidermis is thinned under the influence of various aggressive factors, the process of normal exfoliation slows down and the oroging cells accumulate on the surface.
The deterioration of the exfoliation process on the feedback mechanism worsens the products of its own collagen and elastin of the skin, and therefore the skin loses its elasticity and strength.
In the spring, not only dry skin is experiencing problems, it’s not so difficult to get rid of the problem of excessive dryness. Surprisingly, The most "harmful" skin of spring – mixed type: Plots on the forehead, chin and nose wings suffer from newly emerging excess skin and extended pores, sections on the cheekbones and in the area of the eye contour – from excessive dryness. Fatty skin due to its nature is most protected in winter, and in the spring again there are problems with inflammatory elements, dehydration, skin acquires excessive sensitivity and dehydration.
For all types of skin in the spring will suit Use of very delicate enzymatic peels. These funds are very easy to use and do not require special skin training. Allergic reactions to these drugs are quite rare. Enzymes (or enzymes) – biologically active substances of protein nature, in the body they perform the role of initiators and accelerators of many biochemical reactions. In cosmetics, they act as follows: dissolve dead cells and intercellular lipids that bind them and interfere with the exfoliance. Such a cream must simply apply on face and neck for 10 minutes, and then wash off with water. If the cream also contains micrographs that contribute to mechanical exfoliation, it is necessary to massate the face.
Improving the color of the face will help serums – Cosmetic concentrates that need to be applied to the skin of the face and neck under the main cream in the morning or in the evening. The composition of the serum is diverse – from vitamin for young leather to tower and multicomponent, providing not only improvement of the complexion of the face, but also the lifting effect and elimination of wrinkles. Typically, serums always contain highly purified plant extracts.
Cosmetics with antioxidants Spring is very good for the skin, because during the period of interseasonal adaptation in the skin, many biological processes are resumed, not always positive. Antioxidants do not accumulate in skin free radicals, which exacerbate the process of skin aging. These include various substances of natural and synthetic origin. Antioxidants-vitamins are widely known: alpha tocopherol (E), ascorbic acid (C), retinol (a). Vegetable bioflavonoids, such as Rutin and Catechin. Carotenoids, for example, beta-carotire – vitamin A predecessor. Ubiquinon (Coenzyme Q) – its biological efficiency is five times higher than the effectiveness of vitamin E. A number of synthetic antioxidants are also used, for example, ionol.
Antioxidants in cosmetics can only provide their protective effect in the presence of "helpers". For example, vitamin C restores vitamin E, while losing its activity. Bioflavonoids and vitamins E and with. This is taken into account when creating cosmetic drugs with antioxidants. For the most famous of them – vitamins A, E and C – stabilizers that allow them to be used individually as basic active substances. Only "Stabilized Vitamin A" usually indicate the packaging. Technology stabilization road and, as a rule, not disclosed. Accordingly, creams with high concentrations of stable antioxidants can no longer cost cheap.
Natural complexes of antioxidants Contained in grape extracts, ginkgo biloba, green tea, pine bark, horse chestnut, cacti Hammamelis and schoves, sea buckthorn, rosemary, blueberries, cranberries, raspberry, orange. Natural hoods of these plants introduced into cosmetics can provide their rejuvenating and supporting effect on the skin.
In the spring "activate" freckles and pigment stains. Excessive pigmentation arises due to excessive melanin skin. "Busy" These are specialized skin cells – melanocytes. They work only under the influence of ultraviolet radiation, which in the winter is not enough. With an increase in the light day in the spring, we are more on the street, in addition, solar activity in this period rises. The result does not cause to wait – melanocytes "wake up" and the melanin, accumulating in certain sites.
Spring is significantly reduced by immunity of the skin under the influence of active solar improveiolet, Therefore, it is very important to protect the skin from the negative impact with a cream containing the Utaffiolet filter. Cosmetologists recommend using spring creams with a protection factor not less than 15. Filters must be predominantly not transparent creating a physical barrier on the path of penetration of ultraviolet. These substances include long-known titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxide, or filters based on them.
Many cosmeceutical laboratories create special multicomponent air complexes for their cosmetics, in which the absorption amplifiers are added also. By themselves, they do not absorb ultraviolet, but have the ability to effectively dispel radiation, reinforcing UV filters. They can be organic nature, for example, polymethyl methacrylate, or mineral, for example, magnesium silicate. Such components reduce the amount of UV filter used, thereby reducing the risk of side effects and allergic reactions.
