What is healthy skin?
Skin color has a lot to do with race, gender, and occupation. There are different colors such as black, white, and yellow.
This is mainly determined by the type, number, size and distribution of melanosomes.
The blood circulation status of the skin, light reflection on the skin surface, bad living habits and mental and nerve factors can also affect the skin color. Such as patients with endocrine diseases, the skin is prone to stains; patients with leukemia have pale skin
"Bright red" is the ideal and healthy skin color.
2. Skin gloss
The skin texture is delicate and shiny, which is a manifestation of youth and vitality.
The gloss of the skin is affected by the thickness of the skin's stratum corneum. If the stratum corneum is too thick, the skin will become dark yellow and lose its luster, but if the stratum corneum is too thin, the skin will be prone to stains and make the skin dull and dull.
The smoother the skin surface, the moderate humidity, and no peeling, the better the gloss of the skin, and the worse the gloss of the skin.
3. Skin texture
The skin surface texture is fine, superficial, and soft is the appearance of youthful and beautiful skin.
But with the increase of age and the influence of environmental factors, the skin texture will gradually increase and thicken, and wrinkles will form and gradually deepen.
4. Skin elasticity
Healthy skin dermis is rich in collagen fibers, elastic fibers and reticular fibers are arranged neatly, and use finger pads to gently press the skin to recover quickly.
Skin elasticity is directly related to the moisture content of the stratum corneum. If the moisture content of the stratum corneum is moderate, the skin will appear moist and elastic; on the contrary, if the skin is too dry, it will be prone to dry lines and fine lines, and skin elasticity will decrease.
Skin elasticity is also directly related to collagen and elastin. As the age increases, collagen and elastin will continue to be lost, causing the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to sagging and sagging skin.
The elasticity of the skin is also indirectly affected by the subcutaneous fat layer. With age, the content of the subcutaneous fat layer will become less and less, which will cause the upper dermis to relax and sag.
The healthy skin should be "white and red", smooth, delicate, elastic, and less wrinkled.
The importance of good facials care
A good facial care routine is only as good as the products you use. While good quality products can help your skin look better now as well as in the future, poor quality products can be ineffective and even cause harm. In this blog, we will explain more about the importance of quality skin care and facial products:
Good facial care is important for the following reasons:
1. It helps your skin stay in good condition
You’re shedding skin cells throughout the day, so it’s important to keep your skin glowing and in good condition. An effective routine can help prevent acne, treat wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking its best.
2. Your skin will look more youthful
As you age, your skin’s cells turn over more slowly, make it look duller and less radiant. Using a quality skin care line can help remove dead skin cells so your body will replace them with newer, more youthful cells.
3. Prevention is easier than correction
Preventing skin problems is easier -– and less costly – than trying to fix them in the future.
4. Your self-confidence will get a boost
When your skin looks better, you’ll feel better about yourself and have more self-confidence.
How can I take care my skin?
1. Cleaning: Cleansing of dirt and makeup (cleanser)
Before all the maintenance, the follow-up skin care products can only work if the oil and dirt on the skin surface are removed.
Washing your face in the morning and evening is the easiest thing, but the wrong way to wash your face can be counterproductive. Not only did you fail to wash your face, it will also cause skin problems!
For example, you can't use too hot water, because overheated water will destroy the collagen fibers inside the skin, and you can't wash it too often, just once in the morning and evening.
Here is a warm reminder that for people who usually like to make up, you must remember to remove makeup before cleaning your face.
If the skin is not clean, not only skin care products are not easily absorbed, but also dull skin and clogged pores for a long time.
As a result, blackheads, whiteheads, and acne occur. However, excessive cleaning can easily cause moisture loss, dry skin and even sensitive skin.
2. Toning: Balance your skin and drink plenty of water (water)
Use water immediately after cleansing the face to effectively replenish the lack of moisture in the skin. At the same time, wipe the entire face with a cotton pad soaked in lotion, this method can play a role of secondary cleansing, the cells swell up to make the skin better absorbed, and prepare for the use of skin care products.
3. Nourishment: moisturizing and nourishing rice quality assurance (essence, lotion, cream)
After using water, we can use essence, lotion or cream to nourish the skin.
After lotion, immediately use the essence with the highest nutritional content. The molecules of the essence are very small, so it can quickly penetrate into the inner layer of the skin to achieve the effect of skin care.
Emulsion has a certain amount of oil, which is usually an emulsifier mixed with water and oil. Therefore, it can moisturize the skin. The previous steps require lotion to stabilize it, otherwise it will easily volatilize from the face.
Facial cream is highly moisturizing. Its texture is thicker than lotion, but its ability to improve skin is also the strongest, and its nutrient content is much higher than lotion. Therefore, it is very important to have a good bottle of cream.
4. Protection: Evenly protect and wear clothes (sun protection)
Protection is isolation, sun protection, and the last step of daily skin care. You must not neglect this step, which is equivalent to dressing our skin. The skin without protection is streaking, which is very harmful to the skin, because no matter it is cloudy or sunny, there are strong ultraviolet rays outdoors. No protection is done when the sun is out.
5 tips for face clean up at home
1. Wash your face with warm water
The outermost layer of our skin has a protective film called the sebum film, which has the function of protecting, moisturizing and softening the skin. The sebum film is most afraid of high temperatures. If hot water is used, it will destroy the sebum film and cause it to lose its protective function. If you use cold water, your pores will shrink and you will not be able to clean the dirt inside the pores. So washing your face with warm water is best for your skin.
2. Choose mild cleansing products
Many friends think that the stronger the cleansing ability, the better, because they like the clean feeling of washing. But this washing really washes you into big oil fields and sensitive skin in minutes. Because after the facial cleanser has washed all the oil on the face, the skin will immediately secrete more oil to protect the skin, so the skin will become more and more oily in the long run. In addition, facial cleansers with a particularly strong cleaning ability are generally very irritating, and the skin can easily become sensitive after long-term use. So be sure to choose a mild facial cleanser that can clean the dirt on the surface of the skin.
3. Rub your palms when using skin care products
When using skin care products, rub the palms of your hands and press your face to make the skin better absorb the skin care products. Different skin care products can be combined with different techniques. The lotion is best wet, wiped or pressed. After the essence is evenly applied, press it gently for better absorption. After applying the eye cream, tap it with your index finger. Rub the lotion and cream in the palm of your hand, press the face and flick.
4. Skin care products should be applied in time after cleansing
Immediately after washing the face, the stratum corneum of the skin is full of water, and the interstitium of keratinocytes becomes loose. At this time, using skin care products not only facilitates absorption, but also locks the skin's moisture, and the moisturizing effect will be better. Don't wait for your face to dry before applying skin care products, the effect will be greatly reduced.
5. Apply skin care lotion before going online
The static electricity generated by the screen radiation is most likely to attract dust, and it is easy to cause the skin to be dull and dull when facing the computer for a long time. Therefore, you might as well apply skin care lotion before going online to form a "separation film" between it and the facial skin. After surfing the Internet, the first task is to cleanse the skin. Use warm water and facial cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the face, wash away all the dust and dirt adsorbed by static electricity, and then apply mild skin care products. Over time, it can reduce the damage of the computer to the skin.
