With the appearance of the first wrinkles, many girls, like the heroines of fairy tales and films, go in search of the elixir of youth. Cosmetics manufacturers on this wave are ready to offer care from thousands of smart products that work like a surgeon’s scalpel, and salons and clinics offer expensive procedures that will restore youth and youth to the skin.
Although many beauty gurus do not reveal the secrets of youth in order to replenish their budget, there are still universal tips, and by following them, you can quickly get rid of wrinkles and other skin imperfections, and at home. We reveal the main secrets.
No wonder Eastern experts say: “You are what you eat.” You can rejuvenate, exactly how to drive yourself into age, not only with the help of illiterate care, but also with nutrition.
With age, the diet should limit foods that cause micro-inflammation in the skin, stimulating premature aging – these are sugars, fast food, milk. They should be excluded from the diet completely or eat at a minimum.
Add to the menu more foods containing omega-3, 6 and – 9 fatty acids (salmon, walnuts, flax seeds, chia, olive oil, avocado), they strengthen the walls of skin cells. Don’t skip the amino acids (meat, eggs, fish, grains) that repair damaged skin tissue. And pay attention to phytoceramides (wheat, brown rice, spinach, beets), they make the skin supple.
Especially if you have a sedentary job in the office. Before you buy a gym membership, at least take more walks after work. Half an hour a day is enough to warm up, improve blood microcirculation and oxygen. Good microcirculation helps to deliver nutrients to the cells and tissues of the skin, it causes the production of valuable collagen and elastin (needed to avoid wrinkles).
Take good care of your skin
With age, you need to include products with active anti-aging ingredients in the “menu” of your skin. These include antioxidants (vitamins C, E, coenzyme Q10), peptides, collagen, hyaluronic acid, retinol.
Bring technology to life
Unfortunately, home care products only work on the surface of the skin. Therefore, for additional anti-aging support, you have to contact a beautician. In recent years, home gadgets have appeared on the market that allow you to get salon care right at your home and significantly reduce the number of trips to the beautician.
One working example is the UFO 2 smart mask from the Swedish brand FOREO. The device, which looks like a flying saucer, has space functions. In a small gadget, as many as 6 technologies are used to help make your home care many times more efficient. Light therapy or LED light, together with heating and cooling technologies, as well as pulsations, enhance the effect of any mask or your favorite serum and cream. One device replaces four salon procedures:
Or exposure to the deep layers of the skin using light waves of various lengths. The gadget has 8 types of color, each of which eliminates the associated problems. Red fights wilting and smoothes wrinkles, green evens out skin tone, blue removes inflammation, blue soothes, purple gives radiance, orange improves skin color, yellow eliminates redness.
Often included in the care complex in the cosmetologist’s office. The goal is to increase collagen production and tighten the oval. The gadget quickly heats up to 45 degrees, stimulates blood flow and lymph flow. Before use, you can apply your favorite cream or serum on your face and rub the mask over the surface of the skin, the components from the products will be able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the dermis.
Also one of the popular salon procedures for rejuvenation. How does it work in the gadget? The mask cools down to a comfortable 5 degrees. Passing it over the skin, you get a tonic effect comparable to an ice cube massage. In the process, puffiness is removed, pores are narrowed, and the face acquires a healthy glow.
Lymphatic drainage massage
During operation, the gadget produces up to 8000 sound pulsations per minute, simulating the work of the beautician’s hands. This helps to relax muscles, reduce fine lines, stimulate blood flow, and ensure maximum absorption and absorption of the active ingredients of the product.
How it works
Using the space mask is surprisingly easy. To get started, download the free FOREO for YOU app from googleplay or the app store. In it, you can set up an individual care regimen for yourself: for example, combine cryotherapy + green LED light and add pulsations. It is good to combine the mask, as mentioned above, with your favorite cream, serum or sheet mask, as well as with special UFO Power Activated Masks, which are sold separately and activated by the device. You can choose the right one according to your skin needs. You scan the barcode of the mask in the application, and it programs the gadget to work with it. The procedure takes only 90 seconds. If desired, and it will definitely appear, you can repeat.
The UFO 2 smart mask from FOREO Sweden can be purchased at the brand’s online store, on the website and in Rive Gauche, Golden Apple and lamoda.ru. I’m evaluating a gadget, consider simple math: when purchasing it, you pay once, and in a salon or clinic you pay the same amount for each procedure.
