Quarantine is a great excuse to finally start paying more attention to yourself. Get to the books, languishing on the bedside table, waiting for several months (here you can find a list of the 10 most popular editions of 2019). Recall recipes that you still couldn't get your hands on (and here look for hearty and non-nutritious meals for every day of the week). And, of course, take care of yourself more often. Because of the closed beauty bars and beauty salons, our skin should not suffer. In addition, during such a period - stress, a minimum of fresh air, the off-season - she, on the contrary, requires increased attention.
The cosmetologist and brand founder Olga Lorentsin, popular among Hollywood stars, is confident that basic facial care can be provided in isolation. To prepare masks used by Eva Mendes, Jessica Biel, Halle Berry and other celebrities, you can find everything you need at home. No extracts of black caviar and snail mucus. These products are found in almost every refrigerator. You can apply the mixture as a standalone product, or you can apply it to enhance the effect of your favorite masks or serums.
Moisturizing mask for dry skin
- 1 egg yolk
- ½ teaspoon olive oil
- a couple of drops of honey.
Mix all this thoroughly so that there are no lumps, and apply on previously cleansed and steamed skin. The oil is an excellent antioxidant and contains many fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, which are beneficial for supporting the skin's protective and regenerative functions. The yolk is enriched with fatty acids and biotin, while honey has moisturizing properties. Therefore, this "cocktail" is ideal for moisturizing and nourishing dry or chapped skin.
Soak the mixture for 5-10 minutes (for the first time, the minimum time is better to check the body's reaction to honey: it can cause allergies). Then rinse with warm water.
Mask for nourishing oily and problem skin
- 1 egg white;
- 3-5 drops of lemon juice.
Whisk the protein and juice so that the mixture is not too runny. Apply the mask to your face, wait 5-10 minutes and rinse with warm water.
It not only nourishes and moisturizes the skin, but also fights enlarged pores, reduces blackheads, minimizes breakouts and their appearance, maintains tone and adds radiance.
Three tips from a star beauty expert during quarantine
Go through all your makeup: from mascara to balms, from masks to blush
Look at the expiration dates, this is often not enough time. Now is the moment! Throw away or give away any creams and lipsticks you haven't used in the past six months. If some (even the most expensive) funds are overdue, send them to the trash without regret. Don't harm your own body.
Steam your face before applying masks
Back from work, washed and applied a moisturizing or nourishing mask? Consider all in vain. Extracts and formulas work in full force only when the skin is prepared. That is, it is properly cleansed and steamed in the soul. In this case, the remedy is three times more effective.
Use leather rollers
Everyday! This improves the tone, gives radiance and glow, enhances the penetration of beauty products into the skin.
