Cleansing your skin
Properly cleaning your skin is the first step to care for it externally. Your skin must be cleaned thoroughly from any dirt, oil, grease, bacteria, old makeup, dirt, and other substances that can accumulate. To clean your skin:
Use a cream, lotion, or milk.
Massage the cream onto your face and neck.
Apply the cream to your neck and face for five minutes. The duration will vary depending on the instructions.
You can remove excess cream using a tissue, damp cotton wool, or a damp towel.
To tone your skin, use a mild skin freshener, a skin tonic (medium strength), or an astringent cream (strong). To tone, your skin is crucial as it will remove any greasiness left over from the cleansing process. It tightens pores and refines skin. If you plan to use makeup, it leaves a smooth, clean texture that will last longer.
A beauty routine should include nourishing your skin. Skin can become dry from sun, dirt, and harsh weather conditions. Skin foods are designed to restore the skin's natural healthiness by replenishing its nutrients. You don't have to use a heavy, thick skin cream every night. You don't want dry, greasy skin when you go to bed. Instead, choose a lightweight, easily absorbed moisturizer that will fade in a matter of minutes. This category includes many of the latest liquid moisturizers.
Facial Skin Care
Facials are the fastest way to revive and refine dull skin. They leave it soft, glowing, and lightened. Facials also do a great job relaxing stressed nerves, so you feel younger and more relaxed. For a long time, a facial every two weeks will keep your skin looking young and healthy.
A facial at a beauty salon is the most luxurious option. You can relax and let experts do their work. You can also get a facial at your home if you don't have the time or cannot afford regular salon treatments. It would be best if you chose a time that is quiet and unaffected. Make sure you have everything you need before you begin so you can relax and enjoy the process. For a quick home-facial, follow the steps below:
Tie your hair back from your neck and face. Use a headband to pull your hair up towards your forehead.
* Wash your face and neck with cleansing oil. Wipe off with a tissue or a towel.
Massage your neck and face upwards with the cream.
Make a face pack according to your skin type. Spread a thick layer of it on a clean face. After laying down, place the mask on top of your head and allow it to dry for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Keep the mask on your face, and do not speak.
Once your skin is dry, rinse it with cold water. Keep your eyes closed. Apply skin tonic and dry your skin.
* Use skin tonic after your facial to make sure you look good.
Massage your skin
For those over 40, massaging your face is essential to maintain a youthful appearance. Rubbing your face is an effective way to reduce wrinkles. Massaging is not an overnight miracle cure. It is slow and takes time. Massage can reduce unattractive fleshiness and tighten facial tissues and muscles, and increase blood circulation.
Plastic surgery is the only way to get rid of lines and wrinkles. While massage and facial exercises can prevent the formation of new lines, they cannot treat existing ones. You can avoid wrinkles and new lines from forming by strengthening and nourishing your muscles. You can give your skin a youthful appearance by nourishing and toning it. The forehead, temples of the eyes, nose, cheeks, and chin are all familiar places for lines and wrinkles.
Clear skin is essential for massage to be effective. Make sure to get rid of all makeup. Otherwise, your pores will become clogged with dirt particles. It would help if you got rid of all blackheads. Apply cleansing milk to oily skin. You can also remove excess oiliness with fresh lemon juice. Use a moisturizer to moisten the skin if it is dry. Astringent lotions are recommended for oily skin. Use Vitamin E cream to massage the skin. However, the cream should not be too thick to provide enough greasiness for the skin to allow the fingers and hands to move quickly on the face.
After cleansing the skin, apply a cream to it using your fingers. A trained hand can hold the skin firm and apply pressure with even force. As time passes, visible imperfections like wrinkles, flabbiness, and dead cells become less noticeable, and the skin looks more youthful. Because all tissues and veins receive increased blood supply, massage should be done from the neck up and finish at the forehead or temples. The delicate skin around the eyes can be damaged by direct sunlight. It is best to apply the cream directly to the soft skin around the eyes. It takes 15-20 minutes for the cream to be absorbed into the skin. Massage should last that long. You can remove any extra cream using a cotton wool swab that has been soaked in rosewater or water. Before going to bed, is the best time to massage your face.
Massaging is an art
* Slow Massage – This is the most popular method of massage. Massage slowly while gently patting/vibrating your skin. Press the skin gently but firmly with the fleshy portion of your fingers. This process begins at the neck's base at a slow pace; as the fingers move up, the speed increases. The vibration can be used to subdue pain caused by massaging or strangulation.
* Fast Massage – The front palms are used to massage quickly, making sure to move upwards in a circular motion.
* Pressure Massage – This is when pressure is applied using finger-tips. This is a great way to remove pouches under the eyes.
* Stroking Massage – Chubby cheeks are massaged with the tips and fingers. If your nose is large, strokes should be applied from the nose to both the temples and the sides.
* Pinching Massage – The skin is held between the thumbs and fingers in a pincer-like fashion. This massage can be used to reduce wrinkles and double chin.
* Friction Massage – This massage requires that you apply pressure to the skin while the movement is taking place over the underlying structures. This movement can be done with your fingers or your palms. Hard movements are often used on the scalp, while light movements are used for the face and neck.
* Piano playing movements – This exercise strengthens facial muscles and makes them more firm. It would help if you did this on your entire face, focusing mainly on the cheeks. It would be best if you were fluid but not brisk in your movements.
