We hope all of us remember that washing, cleansing and removing makeup are not the same thing. Accordingly, having adopted a cleanser, you should not expect that it will wash away even the minimum make-up along the way. Therefore, it is necessary to start the entire beauty procession with makeup remover with a specially designed product (only two-phase oil-based products will help to remove waterproof products) - and only then cleanse the skin of impurities. Of course, it is not worth zealous in this matter - no pressing, leaving funds for a while and multiple consecutive applications of a care product. But still, you don't need to filon either: as soon as the cotton pad becomes completely white, finish and move on to the next stages of the daily beauty routine.

Next in line is tonic. It is preferable for any type of skin due to the fact that it restores the acid-base balance. After that, apply a moisturizing serum (if you use it, but in summer it is better to use it) and only at the end of all of the above - a moisturizing face cream of light texture and preferably with SPF.
Cleansing by skin type:
In fact, combination skin is the overwhelming majority type. More often in the T-zone, the skin is a little more problematic - prone to oily and rashes, and in the U-zone (cheeks and lower part of the chin) - not so picky, but more prone to tightness and dryness.
Combined skin cleansing is not fundamentally different, for example, from normal. Rely on products for all skin types - and you won't go wrong.
Washing, cleansing and removing makeup are not the same thing.
When it comes to tailor-made care, multimasking comes to your rescue. It is held in high esteem as both sequential (when you apply products all over your face one after the other) and parallel (when you use the products once and zonal, focusing on the specific needs of each site). Stock up on a series of masks and arrange for yourself the perfect spa treatment at home (as an option, you can take a closer look at products within the same brand - for example, Dior and Kiehl's have multi-masking products with detailed explanations and instructions for proper use).

It is a pleasure to take care of normal face skin. But this is precisely where the root of universal evil lies. Accustomed to the fact that everything is fine with the skin, we lose our vigilance. Therefore, girls with a normal type should remember the basic beauty dogmas: gentle cleansing, toning and subsequent care. If you notice that after washing you have a feeling of tightness, you should take action: moisturize your skin with the help of an appropriate serum (which, of course, is in store) or express masks (these are great to apply before daytime makeup).
If you complain that the foundation is rolling, most likely the reason lies in insufficient skin scrubbing.
Oily skin is characterized by increased activity of the sebaceous glands, due to which the skin starts to shine treacherously every now and then (not at all as if it was "highlighted" with a highlighter) and to give out our clogged enlarged pores to the general public.
It is worth eliminating the shortcomings of the owner of this type in the summer, first of all, due to competent cleansing. For oily skin, it is better to select cleansing gels or foams that allow you to regulate the work of the sebaceous glands (foaming textures contain more alkali, which means they cleanse "conscientiously").
It's a myth that oily skin doesn't need to be moisturized. Drying oily skin is no more difficult than dry. So don't neglect moisturizing serums and masks.
Peelings will also help eliminate excess sebum and effectively exfoliate cells that have already become obsolete (by the way, it is because of them that the foundation often rolls off). It is better to scrub the skin no more than 2 times a week. If you overdo it, the epidermis will become thinner and the protective properties will decrease.
Owners of dry skin types, even in summer, should not forget about care products with nutritious ingredients (for example, with almond extract, rose extract or with rosehip oil). It is necessary to cleanse dry skin especially carefully, because even ordinary water washes away valuable fats, thereby only aggravating the unpleasant condition. What to do? Try to wash your face only with warm mineral water and filtered or boiled water. And, of course, forget about soap. The favorites are mousses, milk and micellar water for dry skin types.

Common mistakes when cleaning with an electric brush
Despite the fact that the electric brush has become almost the reference method for deep cleansing, some still stubbornly refuse to agree with this. Why? Because, most likely, they make typical mistakes when using a super-tech beauty gadget:
Change the attachment every 3 months, after the expiration of the period, buy the one that is suitable specifically for your skin type, and do not share it with someone else (if you so desire, your beloved family member can make him happy with his own, purchased as a gift).
