Cosmetic fasting, quésaco?
Have you ever heard of cosmetic fasting ? The cosmetic fast is in a way the food fast of the cosmetic. The goal ? Rest your skin to allow it to breathe better and put cosmetics aside for a moment.
In this article, we will reveal all the keys to have a good cosmetic fast and understand its mechanisms.
What is cosmetic fasting and why should I do it?
The purpose of cosmetic fasting is to gain confidence in your skin by removing cream, lotion or make-up used mainly for aesthetic purposes, or for treatment. Indeed, our skin has all the capacities to self-regulate and protect itself. This is about trusting it and leaving it to rest for a minimum of 48 hours.
This fast will allow you to take a step back with all the cosmetics and start to trust your skin because you will see, it knows how to manage very well!
How to proceed ?
The ideal is to carry out this fast in a period of calm, on vacation, on weekends or even teleworking so as not to solicit it by sweating excessively.
To start a cosmetic fast, it is important to start with a good cleansing of your face. Start by applying your two-phase makeup remover then your cleaning gel. Rinse your face well then dry it gently with a terry towel.
After this step, nothing more needs to be done !
Forget your cosmetics during the cure. The only possibility, your "joker" is a flower water ; in the event of significant tightness, or the sensation of dirt, shine, you can apply a rose hydrosol or even Orange Blossom, which will provide relief without using creams. Gradually, your skin will regulate itself and you won't even need this trick anymore.
To optimize this fast, practice self-massage , using your fingers or a stone roll-on. This small massage will stimulate the microcirculation, allowing better oxygenation of your skin and stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin .
Finally, do not hesitate to drink a lot in order to eliminate the accumulated toxins (about 1.5 to 2L) by adding for example thyme, rosemary, lemon, which will have purifying virtues and to eat fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants. .
In the event of a skin problem such as eczema, psoriasis, atopic skin, do not hesitate to ask your dermatologist for advice before starting this fast.
