Ice for the skin? It seems strange, but it is not. A skin that is hydrated and cared for no matter how old you are will always look more beautiful than a skin that is not cared for or hydrated.
In most cases, people do not have enough time or economic resources to attend specialized skincare centers frequently. However, the key is not to constantly go to these types of places, since everything is based on persevering in the skin treatments that are being carried out.
Many people think that the more skincare products they use, the better results they will get, but this is not true, since there are so many beautiful items that they don’t even know how and what each one is used for. Or they just use them at the beginning of the treatment (which they never finish), which causes unnecessary expenses in products that will not be used properly.
Without a doubt, the most important thing for beautiful skin is hygiene, which will vary depending on each person’s skin type. It is advisable to do it twice a day: in the morning when you wake up and at night before going to bed. It is important to keep in mind that it is not favorable to sleep with dirty skin and/or makeup.
And although the skin is aging over time, there are several factors that are capable of making it age faster. Whether it is the daily routine, being stressed, unveiling, fatigue, environmental pollution, bad eating habits, smoking, drinking a lot of alcohol, among others, all these are aspects that deteriorate the skin faster and therefore carry consequences such as the appearance of age-related characteristics.
