It is not at all difficult to preserve the beauty and youthfulness of the skin - for this it is enough to take care of it regularly, remove dead skin cells, and accelerate blood circulation in the upper layer. "Thalasso" - Dead Sea scrub - effectively solves this problem.
Thalasso is used to cleanse the face, but it can be applied all over the body. The body is a full-fledged organ that protects the body from external influences, participating in the process of respiration, metabolic processes and immune reactions.
Dead Sea body scrub - action
The skin - the epidermis - is quite complex. The outer layer - epidermal - contains 12-15 rows of cells of different structure, up to 0, 12 mm thick each. This layer is constantly regenerated - keratinized scales are exfoliated, new ones are produced.
The inner layer is a porous formation, its thickness is up to 2 millimeters. Consists of collagen, a fibrous protein. The connection with the upper layer of the dermis is carried out by a grooved layer, which consists of sebaceous and sweat glands, hair follicles, blood vessels and nerve endings.
The upper layer - the epidermis - consists of 5 layers. Upper horny - squamous, capable of self-regeneration. The rest of the layers are refreshed slowly.
Epithelial cells during mitosis (division in deep layers) rise to the surface slowly, and in order to speed up the process, it is necessary to stimulate them.
Body scrub with Dead Sea minerals accelerates the regeneration process. The pores open, impurities are removed from them, which impede the flow of oxygen from the outside into the skin, blood supply is accelerated - and oxygen enters from the inside, through the bloodstream. Together with the impurities in the sebaceous and sweat ducts, pathogenic microorganisms are removed, dead cells are removed.
In the membrane layers - deeper, the synthesis of calcium ions, glycoproteins is activated, the synthesis of fibrillar protein increases, from which collagen is built. The bond between membranes is strengthened - the finest protein filaments - tonofibrils - are reproduced. It is this component that provides the face and body with elasticity and firmness.
Dead Sea scrubs - composition
In addition to the Thalasso scrub with Dead Sea minerals, there are other types of products for cleansing the face and body.
The abrasive particles in them are sea salt crystals. They remove dead cells, the skin is cleansed, the blood supply is activated, the epidermis is enriched with essential microelements.
The rest of the ingredients for body and face scrubs are liposomes, aromatic oils, extracts of medicinal plants.
The difference between products with Dead Sea minerals from other types of cosmetic products is that the procedure with their use combines mechanical and chemical cleansing. The upper layer of the epidermis is renewed, the skin acquires a healthy color. Inflammatory processes are neutralized, age spots turn pale.
The cosmetic products of Israeli manufacturers are not limited to the Thalasso scrub. High quality cosmetic products are offered to consumers: Mineralium Dead Sea, Dead Sea Premier and others.
How to scrub
The effective action of scrubs with Dead Sea minerals is possible only with proper use.
Regardless of whether the product will be applied to the face, décolleté or other part of the body, it should be prepared.
- Wash or shower.
- Steaming - you can use the effect of a steam bath, in which steam will be generated from tinctures of medicinal plants: chamomile, mint, linden blossom, eucalyptus, pine or fir needles.
- Get wet without rubbing.
- Then apply the product along the massage lines. If it is necessary to treat a large area, it is better to divide it into several zones - this way it will be more convenient to work out the upper layer of the epidermis with the help of massage effects.
- The composition is left for a few minutes so that the beneficial base is absorbed into the body as much as possible - it has an effect similar to medical masks.
The composition is washed off first with warm, then cold water so that the pores are tightly closed. After the procedure, a moisturizer is applied to the face and body. It is better to purchase it from the same cosmetic line as the main cleanser with Dead Sea minerals.
Indications and contraindications for the use of Dead Sea scrubs
The indications for the use of Dead Sea Mineral Cleansing Products are:
- cellulite: scrubbing is one of the best ways to activate blood supply in the skin layer and normalize metabolic processes;
- violation of acidity levels;
- the appearance of flabbiness and a decrease in turgor;
- increased secretion (release) of sebum.
When using Dead Sea scrubs for body and face, you need to read what is written on the packaging - what is the pH value. It should be chosen depending on the quality of the skin. Dry - the pH should be at the level of 5.5%, oily - over 6% (6.7% is possible). Only in this case will the procedure have a beneficial effect.
Contraindications to cleansing procedures are divided into absolute and relative.
- individual intolerance to ingredients - even the most natural products can provoke a rash;
- bronchial asthma;
- oncological processes;
- trophic ulcers;
- purulent-inflammatory processes of the skin.
- open wounds;
- pregnancy and lactation;
- infectious diseases with high fever;
- exacerbation of acne.
As soon as the condition returns to normal, you can safely apply formulations with Dead Sea minerals to the face and body.
Features of cleansing the skin
Some beauticians advise using scrubs from an early age. You should know - normal healthy skin does not need such cleansing. On its surface there is a water-fat film that creates reliable protection from external factors. PH is a neutral indicator of acid-base balance, an indicator of hydrogen concentration. In normal skin, it is kept at 6, 7%.
Treatment and cleansing procedures are necessary only when the indicator changes. Down - closer to the alkaline structure - it goes down with an increase in fat content and rises if the body's secretion of sebum is disturbed.
Antibacterial and regenerating agents help to normalize this indicator.
Signs of a change in the pH indicator:
- increased fat secretion - enlarged pores, shine, acne, inflammation;
- reduced - a feeling of roughness, peeling, the appearance of mimic wrinkles.
Often it is impossible to scrub the body with very oily and dry skin. In the first case, the procedure will stimulate an increased release of fat, in the second, you can injure the skin with abrasive particles - after all, the protective film on the dry type body is very thin and fragile. 1-2 procedures per month is enough for a therapeutic effect. Be sure to analyze your feelings even before applying the nourishing cream.
After deep cleansing with Dead Sea scrubs with a mineral complex, the antibacterial protection of the body will increase, blood supply will improve, the deficiency of glycophospholipids is neutralized, and protective secretion is normalized. Healthy skin with a normal pH value looks young and healthy!
