Dead cells on the surface can deprive our skin of healthy radiance – they contribute to the thickening of the stratum corneum, create unnecessary relief and prevent light from being reflected. The result is a delay in normal exfoliation and an uneven complexion. How to be? Use a special cleanser and scrub.
Exfoliation is an important step in self-care that needs to be done regularly. When the skin gets rid of dead cells, space is made for new ones! No care will work until the skin is properly cleansed – beneficial substances simply cannot penetrate inside.
Night is a recovery time for all body systems. The protective functions of the skin are improved, the body is actively fighting aging. And if you don’t get enough sleep, then you expose your face to the blow, and, in the literal sense. Doctors recommend sleeping 7-8 hours a day. Of course, this figure is individual and depends on the characteristics of the organism, but in general we also recommend adhering to this course.
In addition, the skin absorbs the active substances from the care products better in the evening, so try to do your beauty routine before 22:00.
Water makes up 80% of the human body weight, and the skin is 64% water. Another curious figure is that approximately 90% of people do not drink enough water every day. In this regard, the question arises: is enough – how much?
There is a simple formula: the body needs 35-40 ml of water per 1 kg of body weight per day. For example, let’s say you weigh 65 kg. We substitute this value in the formula: 65 kg x 35 ml (0.035 l) = 2.27 liters. Thus, with a body weight of 65 kg, the body’s daily water requirement is 2.27 liters. Beyond formulas, remember to listen to yourself. After all, the body will always tell you what it needs and in what quantity.
We often say that our body is a big cobweb and everything in it is connected. Everyone knows that some of the features of the digestive tract are reflected in the face. Sweet, starchy, too spicy or salty foods do not please the skin at all. And alcohol consumption is another factor that aggravates the consumption of antioxidants, vitamins, and trace elements. As a result, cellular metabolism slows down, and the skin becomes dull. Analyze your diet – it might be worth changing something.
Paying great attention to the work of the digestive tract, many at the same time underestimate the impact of hormonal health. But the skin is sensitive to hormones of the adrenal glands, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, gonads – they regulate melanin synthesis, hair growth, sebum secretion, cell division and collagen synthesis. At the same time, the skin itself is an organ that is actively involved in endocrine regulation. Therefore, her condition can affect her hormone levels. Here is such a cycle.
In these situations, first of all, it is worth working with the root cause, and our hoods will take into account all the features and can help. After all, some components of essential oils penetrate through the skin into the bloodstream and affect the endocrine system and some parts of the brain.
Deficiencies in vitamins C and E, as well as a lack of iron, potassium and magnesium can contribute to a decrease in skin tone, leading to dehydration, irritation and dullness. Moreover, we are talking about both the external use of funds with vitamin C and nutrition.

- the work of the sebaceous glands is regulated, the oily sheen is reduced, the skin becomes matte, it reacts better to care: peels and masks.
