From the simplest rules of daily care and makeup removal to skin restoration after peelings and botulinum therapy.


Do not wash your face with water

Yana Khodnevich, Dermatologist-cosmetologist, leading specialist of the EMC clinic (European Medical Center)

Some girls believe that the water supposedly dries out the skin of the face. This is a huge misconception! Washing is an important and irreplaceable stage in the care and cleansing of absolutely any type of skin. There can be only one exception: if you have hypersensitive or atopic skin, in this case, the method of cleansing is prescribed by the attending dermatologist. Why is washing so important? Because no one, even the highest quality makeup remover, can cleanse pores as well as cleansers with water. Feelings of dryness and tightness will never arise if you choose cleansers according to your skin type and do not neglect the next stage of care - toning.

Do not rinse off micellar water

Yes, yes, advertising promises you a miracle: a couple of cotton pads, whack-whack and you can go to bed. In fact, micelles - the particles that make up micellar water - are quite active substances whose task is to dissolve makeup pigments. But after the colors are washed off, you still need to wash! Leaving micelles on the skin day after day, you break the lipid (i.e. protective) mantle of the skin, it becomes more sensitive and thinner. And the thinner the skin, the faster wrinkles appear on it.

Cleanse problem skin too often

Victoria Britko, dermatocosmetologist

Frequent washing will not make your skin less oily. This can provoke increased work of the sebaceous glands - with the help of sebum, the body tries to moisturize dry skin. To get rid of acne, it is important to maintain the hydrolipidic and acidic barriers. Frequent cleansing prevents this from happening.

Wash your face with cool water using gels with neutral pH - hot water expands the ducts of the sebaceous glands.

After cleansing, be sure to use a tonic - necessary to neutralize the alkaline environment, which creates an excellent atmosphere for infections. Read the composition! Ideally, the tonic contains herbal extracts with a soothing and antibacterial effect of chamomile, aloe, calendula, tea tree.

Do not follow the doctor's recommendations after botulinum toxin injections

Immediately after the procedure, in no case should you go in for sports, tilt your head or go to bed. Doctors often recommend not to visit the sauna immediately after the injection, but this will not cause complications - the drug may simply not be taken or the effect of the procedure will be very short. It must also be remembered that the injection site is a wound, if you touch it with dirty hands, or immediately apply foundation, powders (and other makeup products), then inflammation can form there.

Use deodorant often

Vita Lyasota, columnist at BeautyHack, creator of the natural cosmetics brand @ natureal.ua

The armpits are a collection of lymph nodes, the task of which is to remove all the "debris" from the body as quickly as possible: bacteria, toxins, toxins.

90% of antiperspirants sold in stores and pharmacies contain aluminum, talc, parabens. And premium brands are no exception. All these substances clog pores, interfere with normal metabolic processes.

Thus, the body is partially deprived of one important function for itself - detoxification.

Decay products, toxins and everything that should have said goodbye to you remains inside, continuing to do the "dirty work".The body does not like such "relatives" - it tries to get rid of them by all available means. Guess where is the emergency "exit" for uninvited guests? On the skin (one of its main functions is excretory) - hello, acne.

Apply the face mask to the skin around the eyes

Victoria Britko, dermatocosmetologist

If the mask is not intended for use on the skin around the eyes, never apply it to the periorbital area. The skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. In this zone, there is practically no layer of subcutaneous adipose tissue, and the vessels are very close. The active ingredients in the masks can cause burning, redness and swelling - this only spoils the skin.

Remove flaky skin on your own after peeling

Victoria Britko, dermatocosmetologist

Flaky skin should never be removed by yourself! Each manufacturer of professional cosmetics has special post-peeling creams. Standard care needs to be replaced by them. There are several important rules to follow after exfoliation. The main thing is to protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation for the entire period of rehabilitation, the duration of which is determined by the doctor (under the influence of sunlight there is a risk of hyperpigmentation). Choose products with a factor of 30 or more.

Do not use serums

Ksenia Wagner, journalist, beauty expert

Forgive if you are 22 and you don’t know what wrinkles are. But at the first signs of aging, ignoring this phase of grooming is frivolity, if not recklessness. Serum formulas contain active ingredients in maximum concentration, penetrate the skin as deeply as possible and … most importantly! … enhances the subsequent effect of the cream. But at the same time it is not replaced! The serum works against a specific problem (dryness, wrinkles, pigmentation, etc.), while the main functionality of the cream is protective. Due to its denser consistency, it creates a kind of screen on the skin against the harmful effects of the environment. Sisleya talked about the excellent whey here.

Do not wash sponges and brushes

Victoria Britko, dermatocosmetologist

Dirty sponges are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. When you apply the tone, they get on the face and cause inflammation and purulent rashes - you know how it spoils the skin. Wash and treat brushes with disinfectant solution at least once a week.

Use moisturizers with mineral oils (especially if you already have problem skin)

Irina Nikolaeva, professional cosmetologist, beauty blogger and founder of the IRC and IRUSHKA cosmeceutical brands

Mineral oil creates an invisible film on the skin, which clogs the pores. The processes of microcirculation are disrupted and not only the problems associated with acne are aggravated, but the quality of the skin as a whole worsens, it becomes thinner, the complexion fades. That is why these ingredients are extremely undesirable and even dangerous in the composition of moisturizers for skin care.
