Care cosmetics: what, when, and how?

Care cosmetics: what, when, and how? 11 April 2022

It is believed that you need to start using care cosmetics after the first signs of aging. It is not true. You need to start take care of health and skin at a young age.  

If you look great at 25 and do not see any alarm bells in the form of first wrinkles, please do not forget that at this age it starts the general aging of the skin. This means that the basic processes and functions have already slowed down and the number of cells that give volume and elasticity to the skin has decreased.  

What should be the daily care?

Proper skin care consists of 4 stages:

  1. cleaning;
  2. toning;
  3. hydration and protection;
  4. nutrition and recovery.

Skin cleansing should be performed twice a day – in the morning and evening. If cleansing is not done properly, even the most effective cream will have no effect. However, there is no need to wash your skin to the squeaky, especially using the soap. Soap not only washed away dirt and cosmetics, but also disrupts the skin microbiome. You need to use a washing foam for gentle cleaning. ED Cosmetics cleansing foam does not contain ingredients that can disrupt the barrier function of your skin. Our line for washing is presented with the following foams :

Cosmetologists recommend using before washing micellar water. This method effectively removes even permanent makeup. Then apply the foam on damp skin, massage with your fingertips, and rinse thoroughly with water.

Toning restores the water-lipid barrier and and prepares the face for moisturizers. When choosing a tonic, consider your skin type. Give preferences to hypoallergenic, alcohol-free products. Toning makes the skin fresh, tightens pores and has inflammatory effects.

Moisturizing and protection – is the third stage, the main task of which is to protect the skin from dehydration that is to maintain water and lipid balance. At this stage, use serum, day cream, and eye cream.

The serum consists of active ingredients that penetrate into deep layers and affect a specific cause – smooth deep wrinkles, remove pigment spots, whiten skin color. The serum should be applied to cleansed skin in the morning and evening. A small amount of serum will be enough because it is rich in many active ingredients. Apply you’re a few minutes after the serum.

A common mistake is to replace the serum with a cream. It is important to know that these products are needed for different purposes: the serum penetrates and acts on the subepidermal level, and the cream consolidates the result, softens, and protects from external irritants. 

Do not neglect eye cream, because the skin around the eyes is very thin and needs special care. Lack of care for this area adds age, and this is a place where the first wrinkles appear. 

Nourishment and restoration of the skin will provide the use of night cream. It is more nutritious and has a thicker consistency than day cream. Apply the night cream with light massage movements and hour before bedtime.  

We recommend using a night cream with vitamin C from ED Cosmetics, we combine fragrant moisturizing and skin rejuvenation. Sweet orange, vitamin E acetate, coconut caprylate, shea butter restoration, nourish and match all skin types.

Take care of your skin and let your daily beauty habits become a pleasant ritual.
