Thermal water: how to use
Heat, dust, smog - faithful companions of summer. And if you can not hide from them, you can at least minimize their harmful effects on the skin. To do this, you will need thermal water, which has long taken root in the cosmetics bags of insta-bloggers and makeup artists, but for some reason is actively ignored by ordinary girls. And in vain!
Why does the skin need thermal water?
Thermal water is water that has been extracted by “blood and sweat” from natural sources. It contains not just H2O, which, as many people think, can be replaced by plumbing, but mineral salts and other beneficial microelements that saturate the skin with necessary substances, moisture and vitamins. The temperature of thermal water exceeds 40 degrees (do not burn yourself, do not be afraid), and by its purity it can be compared with the tears of a unicorn. The concentration of useful salts of water is determined by the depth of its production: the deeper the source, the higher its mineralization. You can drink it, but it brings much more benefit in external use.Dermatologists even say that thermal water fights dermatitis and eczema perfectly, especially if used correctly. About the prevention of dryness, rashes and inflammations say nothing - it works to the last drop. Thermal waters are rich in selenium, potassium, calcium, sulfur, sodium, zinc and silicon.
Thermal water is of several types:
Isotonic (low-mineralized)- the composition of the water is as close as possible to the composition of the fluid in the tissues and blood cells, so it definitely will not bring any harm, and all the more it will not cause an allergic reaction. Such water is recommended for use by girls with sensitive, dehydrated and damaged skin.
Hydrocarbon Sodium- differently, it is called highly mineralized water due to a significant excess of the level of mineral salts in the composition. It is recommended to use such a thermalka for owners of oily, problem, inflamed skin (good after burns). Due to the high content of active substances, water precisely treats the skin: it restores the dermis, increases the protective properties, regulates the production of sebum, and also dries inflammations.
Selenium- ideal for summer time and as a prophylaxis for premature aging.Selenium has the ability to neutralize the effects of free radicals, to refresh the skin in the heat and soothe after burns. Suitable for owners of sensitive, normal and combination skin.
Oil and flower- manufacturers decided to experiment and enrich the thermal water with essential oils and plant extracts. What for? To create a stir, attract even more customers and bring additional value to the skin. Depending on the ingredients, the thermo bath will bring specific benefits: protect, soothe, moisturize, nourish, restore, rejuvenate, refresh, etc. Only, unlike pure water obtained from natural sources, oil and flower can easily cause allergies, therefore you need to be especially careful with them.
The main work of thermal water is its ability to soothe, relieve irritation, saturate the skin with oxygen, accelerate metabolic processes, give shine and heal cells from the inside. By itself, the thermals does not moisturize the skin, but only maintains an optimal water and mineral balance in it.Use thermal water can and should be in situations where your skin loses moisture under the influence of external aggressive factors: in the office because of a working heater or air conditioner, on the beach because of an active sun, on an airplane because of pressure drops and low humidity ... In addition to the fact that thermal water perfectly restores the water balance in the cells, rescues from dehydration and relieves inflammation, it works as a reliable makeup fixer, compress for itchy insect bites, boosts creams, serums, masks and emulsions. sions, "Filter" and dullness of the skin glossy.
The biggest mistake that many girls make when using thermal water: sprayed on the face, they leave it to dry. This can not be done in any case - the skin will become dry, dehydrated and dull. This is explained by the fact that some salts not only donate, but also absorb microelements, and also because moisture dries out of the skin when the beauty products with water droplets dry out. That is why after sprinkling, after a couple of minutes, you need to blot the excess with a cloth.If, after thermal water, you intend to apply another care agent, it is not necessary to soak it with a napkin: it will “pull” moisture and useful substances from cosmetics, thereby enhancing their effect.
