The secret of beautiful skin.
Very oily skin. Who does not know such a problem is unlikely to understand me, but in fact, oily skin causes a lot of problems and inconveniences. Oily skin.
To begin with, the condition of our skin depends to a large extent on what we eat, how often and in what portions we consume food.
Those who have oily skin, it is advisable to switch to a special diet. It is advisable to eat 4-5 times a day, but in small portions. The food should be lean.
You should not also eat a lot of spices, smoked products, flour products and sugar.
Practically exclude fritters, pancakes, buns and smoked products from your diet, exclude peppers and mustard from spices, but you can use horseradish and cinnamon.
Use the cinnamon breakfast when cooking muesli:
A third of the glass of oatmeal is poured into a deep plate, pour a small amount of steep boiling water and for a few minutes I close the lid.
Then I add a little cinnamon, honey and half a glass of berries (I stocked cranberries for the winter), or another option — I add cinnamon and raisins (then honey, of course, is not needed).
However, the spices include onion, and garlic, and dill, and celery, and parsley — these spices can be left in their diet in full.
These products only benefit the skin.
In all books on cosmetology they write that those who have oily skin do not it is recommended to drink a lot of coffee and alcoholic beverages, but very useful there are vegetables and fruits, dairy products, boiled meat, fish, buckwheat porridge, black bread.
Food should be rich in vitamin A, which is found in carrots, sea buckthorn, pumpkin, butter, egg yolks.
These recommendations should be taken into account, and as for vitamin A, then in winter and spring additionally take it in capsules (7 days in winter — usually in January and 7 days in spring — at the end of March).
Oily skin needs to be washed daily and sometimes twice a day with soap and water. Water should not be very hot, room temperature.
Useful and contrasting facial wash, that is, first you need to wash your face with warm water and then rinse with cold water.
Moreover, the oily skin is beneficially affected by tar soap. Try to use it. Frankly, the smell of this soap is not pleasant, but the good effect from its use is obvious.
As a result, even taking a shower, the body should also be washed with tar soap, especially since the specific smell of this soap immediately vanishes, and the positive effect on the skin is persistent.
And I want to share recipes for lotion and mask for oily skin, which can be easily prepared at home, the effectiveness of which is checked:
1 tbsp. A spoonful of chamomile and 1 tbsp. Spoon of calendula (these herbs can be bought at the pharmacy) pour a glass of boiling water and insist 20-30 minutes, then strain, cool and add 1 tbsp. Spoonful of camphor alcohol.
The result is a lotion.
This lotion is well applied to the face 2-3 times a day. The lotion can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
At 2 tbsp. Spoons of cottage cheese take 1/2 tsp of liquid honey and egg white. Cottage cheese rub with honey, add protein and whisk.
The resulting mass is applied to the face and hold for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the mask with warm water, and then rinse your face with cold water.
This mask moisturizes and tones up the skin, and most importantly — it narrows the pores well.
