Winter time, however enjoyable, unfavorably affects the skin. Frost and wind make the skin dry and by the end of the winter months, our skin looks tired, lifeless and grayish in color, no matter how well we look after it.
On the other hand, winter is a good time for rejuvenation. This is the time when we start deep peeling and various exfoliation treatments. Why in the cold winter, though? The answer is simple. Such treatments cannot be carried out under the conditions of the active sun, whereas winter is the time when the sun ‘goes on holiday’. Professional salon treatments renew the skin by means of quite an aggressive interference; these treatments are aimed at eliminating fine lines, pigment spots, scars and other cosmetic imperfections. After such treatments, the restoration of the lipid barrier, deep hydration and nourishment, vitamin enrichment of the skin are vital, and therapists in beauty salons specialize in this. However, home care remains a considerable part of looking after yourselves.
Spring care restores the skin after the winter’s aggression and prepares it for summer.
Avoid intensive exfoliation for a couple of months and be very careful with home peeling products.
Peeling products should contain soft peeling particles and be very delicate.
Soapless face peeling is a perfect solution. It has a wonderful fragrance and is produced with the use of a unique formula. It is designed to remove dead cells, to make your skin firm and velvety and stimulate blood circulation. It effectively evens out the existing wrinkles and prevents the appearance of new ones. The peeling is enriched with vitamin E and natural herbal extracts; it contains 26 Dead Sea minerals. Is suitable for all skin types.
During the first month, after the winter is over, the peeling should not be used more than once in two weeks. Later on, it can be used more often – once a week.
Remember to use facial masks to add more hydration and nutrition.
I recommend Aloe Vera Soothing Gel as a powerful moisturizer. As I have mentioned before, aloe Vera has hydrating, regenerating and healing properties, so necessary after aggressive interference. Its light gel texture absorbs very easily, making your skin look fresh and revitalized. Apply a dense layer of the gel and let it absorb into the skin. Aloe Vera gel treatment may be carried out on a daily basis, over a period of two weeks. Later on, do this treatment twice a week.
Moisturizing Treatment Mask is an active mask with a high content of Dead Sea minerals. Thanks to its unique vitamin combination, it slows down the ageing processes, prevents the appearance of wrinkles, hydrates the skin and makes it is look healthy. This treatment works for all skin types and is recommended for use once a week.
Ultra Intensive Facial Mask is an intensive hydrating mask for looking after and nourishing the skin of your face. The mask is produced with the MP269 two-phase absorption technology; it refreshes the skin, making it look smooth and radiant. The mask contains unique capsules, which dissolve during the application of the cream and release vitamins A and E, as well as mineral substances. It also contains a unique complex of active substances combined with black caviar and Dead Sea minerals, amino acids and carbohydrates. It is enriched with vitamins A, B5, C, E and peptides to reduce wrinkles. The mask abundantly nourishes the skin with green tea, nettle, orchid, aloe and chamomile extracts, which make the skin smoother and firmer.
Black Caviar Face Mud mask is a unique development of Mon Platin laboratories. This mud mask contains an extremely high concentration of unique Dead Sea minerals and is based on natural muds. It thoroughly cleanses your skin, balances its oiliness level, preventing skin ageing and the appearance of wrinkles. The mask is enriched with black caviar concentrates, facilitating additional skin nourishment with vital components; it contains mineral salts in high concentration, iron, manganese, selenium and amino acids. It is also enriched with aloe extract and a unique skin nourishment complex.
Using creams for intensive moisturizing
I would like to make a special emphasis on Olive and Carrot moisturizing creams. After winter, like in no other time, the skin is in need of vitamins. These two creams are rich in necessary vitamin complexes. The creams should be used as day moisturizers. The outcome of my research into the properties of these creams prompts the following suggestions:
1. Use it as a daily moisturizer.
2. Use it as a hydrating mask. Apply a thick layer and leave to work for 20 minutes, let it absorb. DO NOT rinse the rest of the cream, but massage it gently into the skin. Do the treatment once a week in addition to the moisturizing and nourishing masks, about which I wrote earlier.
Moisturizing olive oil cream is made with natural olive oil, avocado oil and Dead Sea minerals. It is enriched with vitamins А, Е, С, D and contains a unique filter complex to protect the skin from adverse environmental effects. It hydrates, nourishes and restores the skin, giving it elasticity and a velvety texture. Suitable for all skin types, especially for dry skin.
Moisturizing carrot cream protects the skin and charges it with energy. It contains carrot oil, vitamins А, В1, В2, С and Е, is rich in Dead Sea minerals, and improves the state of your skin. The cream absorbs very easily and contains a unique filter complex to protect the skin from adverse environmental factors.
In addition, remember to use serums. When the skin needs to receive such substances as hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts, they will penetrate the skin more easily in the form of various concentrates and serums. Serum is a conductor of all bioactive components, found in creams.
Protection of the skin. The keystone of skin care is protection from the harmful effect of the sun.
We all look forward to the first gentle spring sunrays. But these niceties do not do our skin any good at all. It is worth remembering that with the arrival of spring, many of us start having most hated freckles, which give the complexion a reddish shade. Every girl strives to get rid of her freckles. To avoid their appearance, remember to use products with a sunscreen filter.
After deep peeling salon treatments, it is very important to protect your skin, so apply a product with sunscreen every time before going out. Remember that UV rays boost the production of melanin, a pigment responsible for the color of your skin. The active functioning of melanocytes leads to pigmentation, therefore if you ignore the use of protection products, you will aggravate the state of your skin after the whitening treatments.
After winter, spring comes…. Spring is the time to restore your skin after winter and prepare it for the coming summer.
Remember that time is not on your side, so do not waste it!!!
Please, stay healthy and beautiful!
