The escaping beauty of
Generation of our mothers sincerely is surprised to quantity of jars and small bottles in our bathroom. About face cream and bath foam still understand. But this spray for a breast, gel for a bottom, a srub for knees... “Why it is necessary?“ - they are perplexed.
But we - that well know that care of a body is also necessary today, as well as face care. All of us move less, we sit in front of computers more and more, even more often we go on foreign beaches and we wear sometimes such clothes in which defects of skin on a stomach or hips are especially well visible.
Partly, of course, our brains “are corrected“ by cunning advertisers. Daily and constantly they convince us that the use of it (or perhaps here that... or one more, absolutely new) cream will make us the happiest women on light. And we obediently go to shop where we stiffen before ranks of jars and tubes with acquaintances and not really names. What, is asked, to choose - what to please a favourite body with?our body is arranged to
remarkably. It is able to adapt independently under various including the most difficult living conditions. Both skin - quite logical and “lawful“ small screw of this debugged mechanism. Its main mission - to protect an organism from external influences. And if we lived in absolutely natural conditions of wildlife, then creams would be hardly necessary to us. Moistening - from air, cleaning - by means of natural dying off of the top cages and washing off by their rains and waters of the river or lake...
But we close skin clothes, we clog up pores cosmetics, we include heating, conditioners, we eat tinned products and we almost do not move. For this reason skin of modern people needs that it was in addition stimulated.
Who whom is called
For a start we will try to understand terms. Today producers suggest to keep and increase beauty with the help:
- of cream with
- of balm in each cosmetic line respecting itself there are almost all these names. What do they mean? In what between them a difference?
the Basis of almost all these forms are fats, wax, vegetable oils and water. But they are used in different proportions and mix up in essentially different way.
Cream is a combination of a fatty basis and small quantity of additives (medical and active agents). As a basis use beeswax, lanolin, vegetable or kostochkovy oils, glycerin. Besides, cream contains a water quantity. And now try to add water to oil - you will see that droplets float separately. And so, in order that the emulsion (called in this case “water in fat“) was formed, emulsifiers - the substances promoting mixture of particles of fat and water are necessary.
As are shown by researches, structure of an emulsion “water in fat“ is most of all similar to structure of natural skin greasing and skin fat therefore cream easily gets into the top layers of epidermis. And together with it also useful impurity (drugs, vitamins, extracts of herbs) get there. Therefore use of cream can be considered as the best form of care of skin!
the Lack of cream usually call its main property - fat content. Therefore, despite obvious advantages, in modern cosmetics to its thicket use for mitigation of the driest sites of skin (knees, elbows) as protection against bad weather or as the night restoring means.
the Milk, lotion, balm is, in fact, names same. To be exact - a so-called direct emulsion like “fat in water“. As it is clear from the name, in such emulsion there is much more water, than fat. The milk is better absorbed in skin, does not leave a greasy luster and marks. It becomes on a stearin basis, but may contain cholesterol, lecithin, hormones, aromatic oils and other substances. (By the way, balm - exclusively trade name. A literal sense of this word - aromatic pitch. In medicine and cookery this word designate an extract from some species of plants).“fat in water“ are very convenient to
of the Emulsion in use. They have an easy consistence, are well distributed on skin and quickly absorbed. However dermatologists consider that they can sometimes cause feeling of tightness and a peeling (at dry skin), and their long use even at normal skin can lead to violations of natural barrier function of skin.It is connected by
with emulsifiers which are used again - for mixture of fat and water. The matter is that emulsifiers happen different - and some of them can get into deep layers of skin and damage cellular membranes. However, recently the large cosmetic companies declare that they use emulsifiers of new generation which have no harmful effect on skin in production of lotions, balms and other “easy“ means on leaving.From here a conclusion - is the best of all than
if lotion, the milk and in general any means which you apply on skin are made by the large company which is able to use new technologies and to buy expensive qualitative raw materials.Gels for a body - are created by
on a water basis and do not contain fatty additives (therefore the combination “cream - gel“ on packing does not make sense: either cream, or gel). They possess the least concentrated structure, their main function consists in moistening. If cream or a milk after evaporation of moisture leaves a protective fatty film on skin, then gel cannot brag of such long effect. As a rule, gels are made on the basis of seaweed (more precisely, their components) or on the basis of giauloronovy acid or a hitozan. Dry skin does not love gels because after evaporation of moisture there can be a feeling of tightness. But fat skin which does not take out preparations on the basis of saturated fats and mineral oils (which can even cause puffiness), the moisturizing gel can perfectly approach.
Tonic - existed until recently only for the person. However many producers let out tonics for problem zones today - hips, a stomach, a breast. It is nonalcoholic liquid which cools (partly the effect of “pulling up“ is explained by it) and moistens skin. Often enter the substances strengthening blood circulation in the top layers of skin into composition of tonics.
Serum is the concentrated preparation which because of high content in it active agents is applied not constantly, and courses. Generally speaking, serum in the food industry call waste which remain from milk by production of cheese. But in modern cosmetology this word began to designate concentrates, extracts, extracts from various plants and so on. Most often serum is intended for elderly skin - for some shake-up, prompt intervention in aging processes. Recently there were active drugs against cellulitis, for creation of short-term effect of lifting. It is desirable to apply them after consultation with the cosmetologist or the dermatologist, and especially accurate people need to be with allergic predisposition.not to forget
about the purpose
Why it is necessary to use everything (or some) means on care of a body? The first that comes to mind: to have a beautiful body. But the main thing - it is necessary to keep skin humidified, it does it young and beautiful (all other additives which producers nominate to the first place in advertizing, give only additional effect).
A for moistening two ways are. It is possible to create by means of fat-containing preparations on a skin surface the thinnest film which will interfere with moisture evaporation (fats, glycerin, mineral oils are a part of these means wax). And it is possible to put means which, being absorbed, will restore water balance (such components as hyaluronic acid, hitozan, glycerin, sobrbitol, some dairy proteins and amino acids, that is the substances as close as possible to natural humidifiers of skin are for this purpose used).we will not tell
About fight against cellulitis here, it is a separate subject. Let`s notice only that in fight against the main female enemy creams, gels and other pleasures in tubes take not the first and even not second place. Cellulitis is caused by changes at the cellular level, and nobody manages to achieve the return process only by means of wonderful cream, unfortunately.
How to choose
In - the first, it is necessary to know the type of skin: dry, fat or normal. Proceeding from it we choose creams or easier forms of preparations.value and habits Have
here. The matter is that it is the best of all to put the moistening means after a shower. If you got used to take a shower in the morning, then buy a milk, gel or lotion. And creams are suitable for evening care of skin more. Cosmetologists consider that cream needs to be used anyway - at least once in a week.
the Following factor - packing. It is the best of all if means is packed into a tuba, it is absolutely good - in a tuba with the batcher. At the same time, when we take a little cream, its most part remains protected inside, does not adjoin to air (and fingers). And it means that on it less bacteria get. If we every time completely open a wide jar, then cream becomes available to both bacteria, and vapors of water and oxygen.Lotion or cream has to be extracted by
easily from a bottle or a tuba, to be uniform, it is easy to be put and be distributed. The smell can be pleasant, and can be absent at all - it speaks only about lack of any aromatic additives.Should recognize
How to use
that all means on care of a body give effect only when use them regularly. It is impossible to sleep for the future and it is also senseless to look after skin occasionally. As soon as we cease to care for artificial moistening, all effect of any, even the most miracle cure, vanishes.should Apply to
means on clean, slightly moist skin, and not to smear, and to rub vigorously. At the same time skin better perceives moistening, but also, blood circulation improves. In general, massage addition even if the simplest, almost magic elixir does of any cream or body lotion. And if you add on reasonable food, the movement (for skin it is the best of all - swimming), then it will be possible to believe also in promises of girls from commercials...
