The mask has an antibacterial effect, soothes inflammation, cleanses the pores and removes dead skin.

Oily skin can also be called seborrheic skin, because it is characterized precisely by increased sebum secretion, so that the pores are greatly enlarged and the face shines all the time. Oily skin is very susceptible to infections, therefore acne often appears on it.

Oily skin needs to be regularly cleaned, but this can not be very invasive methods, and for care should not use cosmetics based on alcohol, which strongly dry.

Very dry skin
The hallmark of dry skin is that it binds and retains water poorly in its cells. Deprived of moisture, skin becomes rough, dull, tight and prone to irritation. Wrinkles form on it faster, and it only takes a little to cause an allergic reaction. Skin becomes dry due to poor skin care, too frequent sunbathing and lack of protection in bad weather, improper diet and insufficient hydration.

Tired and dull complexion
Tired skin is dull, pale, with a grayish tint, lacking radiance and freshness. It looks old and unhealthy, often bruises and puffiness appear under the eyes, cheeks can be additionally very dry. Causes of a dull complexion are lack of skin care, too little time spent outdoors, sleep deprivation, exhaustion, dehydration, diet low in nutrients, smoking, insufficient sun exposure.

Cracking, fragile capillaries are usually the fault of either excess estrogen or circulatory problems. Dilated capillaries most often appear on the nose, cheeks and chin, and in addition to spider veins, skin often shows flushing. The redness is aggravated by temperature fluctuations, when sunbathing or taking a hot bath, as a result of stress or eating very spicy food.

Home-made scrubs for skin problems
Masks, which are supposed to remove skin imperfections, can be done even daily if they are made of natural, mild ingredients. With scrubs it is a bit different - they have a more invasive effect, so you should do scrubs only once a week, and the type of scrub is necessarily selected according to your skin type.
Natural scrubs are much better, because they do not abrade the epidermis and do not destroy the lipid barrier, but only remove deeply all the impurities and bacteria, while providing important nutrients and regeneration. What can you make such homemade scrubs of?

Skin condition and lifestyle
The most expensive cosmetics will not help much if you lead an unhealthy lifestyle. The appearance of the skin very quickly indicates that the body is overtired and lacks vitamins, so in order to look better, it is worth to develop in yourself healthy habits. For the skin, it is very important:

You should also not forget about your diet. It is very important because the skin needs vitamins and minerals, so the body produces more collagenThe skin is well hydrated from within and excess free radicals are removed during metabolism. Valuable nutrients for the skin can be found in vegetables, especially green vegetables, citrus fruits, lean meats, nuts, coarse grains, unrefined vegetable oils, light dairy products.
Artificial foods, large amounts of sweets and very spicy spices disturb the skin's metabolism, cause allergic reactions, promote acne changes and faster formation of wrinkles.
It is worth conducting a detox from time to time, so that the cells are removed of toxins that cause discoloration, pimples and dull skin - during such a treatment, the most important is to drink plenty of water, but also fruit and vegetable cocktails with antioxidants.
