We have already heard many versions of how to properly clean the skin from makeup. Some use micellar, others wash with plain water, and still others generally neglect cleansers and prefer milk, lotion or tonic.
Another trend in the beauty industry is the use of carbonated water. It is claimed that it helps Asians to achieve the effect of porcelain skin. It turns out that they started practicing this ritual decades ago!
Opinion of scientists
In an article for the New York Times, well-known American dermatologist Dandy Engelman notes that carbonated water dilates blood vessels and arterial limbs of capillaries. All this increases blood circulation. In this way, more oxygen and nutrients get into the skin. Therefore, it regenerates more efficiently. That is, the cells are rejuvenated, the face becomes radiant, and all skin irritations disappear faster.
The expert also noted that such washing can be considered a kind of peeling. Carbonated water bubbles remove dirt from the surface of the skin as carefully as possible and do not harm it, like some aggressive scrubs.
Another advantage of using carbonated water to cleanse the skin is the acid balance. Ordinary water provokes dry skin due to its chemical composition. But the acid balance of carbonated water is similar to the pH (hydrogen index) of man.
5 tips on how to properly wash with sparkling water:
Take a deep bowl and fill it with sparkling water. Immerse her face and hold for 10-15 seconds.
If the process is unpleasant to you, dilute the carbonated water with ordinary water.
It is not necessary to do the procedure every day. 1-2 times a week is enough.
Be careful if you have sensitive skin. Consult a cosmetologist.
After performing the ritual, gently wipe the skin with cotton pads.
