In connection with the onset of severe frosts Buro 24/7 asked the head of the clinic of laser medicine Laser Lounge Clinic Karine Musaeva with the question: “How to take care of the face in this difficult time?”
C onset of cold weather, several factors negatively affect the appearance of the skin and become one of the main causes of premature aging.
In the first place, due to changes in temperature (after a frost – dry and hot indoor air) increases the sensitivity of the skin is broken cover it with a protective lipid mantle, and as a result of dewatering of both superficial and deep layers. As a result - peeling skin, decreased immune status and its embrittlement vessels. As a result – the redness, the appearance of vascular network, poor complexion, and irritations.
What to do?
First, make it a rule to always use before going out’s Skin cream and / or foundation with protection SPF 10-15. Today, it is the European standard. It would be naive to think that the devastating effects of UV is turned off due to frost or cloudiness. This simple rule helps to minimize the negative effects of free radicals, which are reinforced by adverse weather conditions.
Secondly, in the cold do not give up moisturizer. It can be used both day and night.Ideally, if your moisturizer contains vitamin C (for skin prone to kuperozu), vitamin K, ceramides, chitosan and alpha-lipoic acid – that is, all those ingredients that are part of the lipid mantle of the skin.
Third, do not forget the active serums and nourishing cream. I want to dispel the myth: nourishing cream – is not necessarily the cream with oily texture. It can (and should) choose for your skin type, as, for example, is too rich texture even in the winter can cause acne, if you have oily, mixed or problem skin. In this case, pay attention to the light texture fluid or milk, as well as the composition, which must be present DMAE, soy protein, retinol, Q10, vitamin E, shea butter, and so on.
And finally, the cold – the best time for salon treatments, which, by the way, have seasonal restrictions (in the summer, for example, because of the risk of pigmentation), but are very effective for solving various problems: sagging, wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, and more another.
I recommend to take a course of chemical peels (a great option – “yellow” peeling), laser rejuvenation and resurfacing. And to cope with dehydration, a dull complexion and skin roughness helps injection Biorevitalisation.
Pay attention to the injection site, which in addition to hyaluronic acid, contain complex antioxidants, vitamins and minerals needed by the skin in this time.
