Greetings to all! The subject of this article is cleansing the skin of the face at home. At first glance, it seems as if there is nothing complicated and incomprehensible in cleansing the skin of the face - I washed myself with water and everything. What can we talk about for a long time, and even write an article?
And, nevertheless, probably, there are not too many people who are satisfied with the quality of the water used.
It often happens that after washing with plain water the skin does not look well-groomed. Therefore, it makes sense to dwell on the methods of cleansing the skin.
Cleansing is daily and deep. Daily cleansing of the skin is usually done in the morning and in the evening.
Morning facial cleansing
Facial care begins with morning washing. And often the morning cleansing of the face is limited only by washing. But this simple procedure should be approached carefully. You have probably heard that washing with cold chlorinated water is not so good for our skin.
But Alyona Sobol shows HOW and with the help of ANY tools should be cleared face. She will teach you how to clean your skin from make-up in a somewhat unusual and, at the same time, completely safe way for your skin.
Simultaneously with cleaning, you can moisturize the skin of your face. This is a video tutorial that will help you to properly care for your face.
Alternatively, beauticians offer rubbing the face and neck with ice cubes. This procedure is contraindicated for those who have spider veins or capillaries on the face very close to the skin. Cosmetic ice is easy to prepare at home.
Take a tablespoon of dry grass or a mixture of herbs, pour boiling water over it and let it brew for 30 minutes. Strain infusion, cool, pour into ice molds and freeze.
For the preparation of infusion is useful to use non-carbonated mineral water.
Herbs can be used individually and in various combinations of chamomile, yarrow, mint, string, calendula, sage. It is recommended to keep cosmetic ice for no more than one week.
When wiping skin with cosmetic ice, follow simple rules:
- Skin should not be supercooling.The procedure should not last more than 3-5 minutes.
- Wipe the skin along the massage lineswithout stretching it.

Evening skin cleansing should be more thorough, since it involves the removal of impurities that have accumulated throughout the day.
First you need to remove the makeup. But this is still not enough for evening cleansing of the skin. For good cleaning, you can use lotions and tonics, decoctions of herbs.
You can make your own cleansing lotion according to any of the suggested recipes.
Lotion for oily skin: 1 cup of cold green tea, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
Lotion for dry skin: 1 egg yolk, squeezed juice of one large peach, 1 teaspoon cream.
Lotion for all skin types: Mash the ripe berries of sweet grapes and leave for 2 hours. Then squeeze the juice. Half a glass of this juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey and a pinch of salt. Leave on for 30 minutes until complete dissolution of the ingredients.
Deep skin cleansing at home
Deep skin cleansing at home is a more complex procedure, but it can also be successfully performed at home. This will help you cleanse your skin and get rid of acne on your face and acne on your neck.
Deep cleansing of the skin with oily skin is recommended to be performed no more than once in 7-10 days, with normal skin - once in 10-14 days.
If the skin is dry or sensitive, deep cleansing should be used extremely carefully.
Steam baths, peeling and various cleansing and exfoliating masks can be referred to the procedures of deep cleansing of the skin.
Steam bath performed after daily cleansing of the skin, often before applying a nourishing mask or cream. Steam and warm moisture soften the upper layer of the skin, help to remove cornified areas, stimulate the work of pores and glands to remove dirt and fat to the surface of the skin.
Steam baths can be performed using medicinal herbs (celandine, bay leaf, licorice, chamomile, plantain, oregano, calendula, wormwood and others) and essential oils (not more than 10 drops per 1 liter of water).
Peeling - This is a special skin cleaning procedure, as a result of which the skin is renewed. With the help of peeling, you can remove skin irregularities and even fine wrinkles. Peeling is mechanical, chemical and physical. At home, peeling can be done with the help of various scrubs.
Scrub for dry, normal and combination skin: thick from the bottom of a cup of natural coffee drunk mixed with the same amount of fat cottage cheese. Apply the scrub on the face and gently massage. Leave the scrub on the face for another 10 minutes. Wash off with water.
Scrub for oily skin: ½ tablespoon of oatmeal, ½ tablespoon of ground almonds, 1 tsp of aloe juice, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of boiled water.
