Let me explain to you why skin get sensitive, when u apply skincare, in particular, moisturizer, lotion easy clog pores and congested. Why do some people look radiance? Is it natural beauty?
How many layer of our skin? basically it can be divided into 3 layers, which is epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Whereas just epidermis layer alone, u can divide to another 5 layers, from bottom to top the layers are named:
Each layer contains skin cell, side by side, layer by layer. In between round-shape skin cells, the gap call matrix, and it is filled with water. if your skin epidermis matrix fill with clean water, you can expect to have radiance naturally glow on skin, and it looks elastic, jus like SK II advertisement: doi doi doi
If water is contaminated, it contains bacteria and cause acne. those who like to use hand touch their face will kena easily. it is true that we should keep a habit not to touch our skin, for hygiene purpose.
The function of a moisturizer is lock moisture, avoid evaporation of moisture, as well as nourish our skin. if a person have no oil protection, moisture of skin will evaporate and dehydrated, as if water bag have leakage and turn wrinkly. When your skin start dehydrated, your skin will turn to sensitivity. At this moment, do not use any moisturizing/nourishing cream, because it will cause more congestion on skin.
Skin cell renew for every 28 days, when new skincell forms, the old one will be pushed on outer skin layer and form dead skin cell (horny layer). when skin is dehydrated, it is fasten up renewal process and form more horny layers. when you apply any oil containing skincare (like moisturizer) , skin will congest and form oilseeds/acne.
So, what should we do when skin is dehydrated? at this moment, a excellent hydrating booster is hydrating mask, do it continuously for a week, to let moisture fill in matrix, stabilize skin layer. then only exfoliate skin using scrub to reduce congestion, and do deep cleansing mask to eliminate oil and dirts from pores, now when you apply moisturizer, you won't have any congestion, then only you can use nourishing products.
Many people (including beauty advisors. most) think that acne/pimples mean your skin is oily, and those oil clog your pores, so they will introduce oil controlling/anti acne range to you. If your skin problem is not caused by bacteria or excessive oil secretion, is because of dehydration, do you think these products can be a solution?A lot of people do not really seek for right remedy for their skin problems, if you choose wrong solutions, it may worse the condition.
Hydrating mask hydrate, provide moisture to skin, it is different from nourishing mask, which provides oil. There is two types of hydrating mask in market: gel mask and sheet mask. To my opinion, hydrating gel mask works better, and money savings if compare with sheet mask.Here are some brands introduction of gel mask, to enhance the effectiveness, i always mix with 1-2 drop of honey and essential oil.
