Interested in learning more? Read on!
First of all, to take care of your body, we advise you to take a shower instead of a bath, as this will prevent your skin from dehydrating easily. Also, make sure to adjust the water temperature, and keep in mind that warm water is always better for your skin than hot water.
On the other hand, it is necessary to favor mild soaps, as they do not dry out or damage the skin. In fact, ordinary soap can cause unpleasant and uncomfortable skin dryness. If you use a shower gel, make sure you rinse your body well after the bath to remove any remaining shower gel.
Immediately afterwards, dry your body well with a soft towel, as this way you will be able to clean all the impurities. Finally, after the shower, don’t forget to moisturize. Hydration is extremely important because every tissue, organ and cell in the body needs water to function properly, in other words, the body depends on water to survive. Don’t hesitate to use a moisturizer that is adapted to your skin.
Now, to get rid of small imperfections on your body, use a body scrub once or twice a week. To do this, take an exfoliating glove, and place the product on it. Then, make circular movements on your body to stimulate blood circulation, eliminate dead cells that accumulate on the skin and pimples. It should be noted that the body scrub makes your skin smooth and regenerated.
Finally, in case you are going to leave your home, remember that when it is cold outside, your skin tends to dry out and be more fragile. That’s why you need to cover up well! On the other hand, if it’s a sunny day, remember to apply sunscreen to your skin and avoid frequent exposure to the sun. Also, take a bottle of water with you to keep you hydrated during your day. We advise you to drink about 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day, this will help you to have a perfectly healthy skin.
If you want to take care of your face, start by eliminating excess sebum. To do this, all you need to do is perform a good skin cleansing. First, apply a facial cleanser that is suitable for your skin to your face. After rinsing your face, use a scrub to remove impurities and dead skin. Keep in mind that you need to apply the facial scrub once or twice a week to get good results. Don’t forget that if you have dry lips, you can also use a suitable scrub to remove dead skin. With this cleansing routine, your skin will be like new!
On the other hand, it is important to apply a moisturizer adapted to your skin type. The ideal is to make movements from your neck to your forehead and from the center of your face to the top of your cheeks. Be careful and avoid putting the cream in your eyes, as this part of the body is fragile and there are other types of treatments specifically adapted to this area.
Finally, we recommend a steam bath on your face, because with this treatment, the pores of your skin open up and let out all the impurities. Don’t forget that to do this, you can choose to do a facial sauna or simply use a bowl of hot water and essential oils. If you use the bowl, all you have to do is place your face on it and cover your head with a towel. Inhale for about 10 minutes and you will be done with your treatment. At Girdodmedical, we recommend using organic essential oils of lemon, eucalyptus, lavender and grapefruit to perform this natural treatment on your face.
To take care of your hair, it is essential to use a mild shampoo adapted to your hair type. For oily hair, it is preferable to opt for a purifying shampoo that has among its components an element that balances the PH of the scalp. While for dry hair, it is advisable to choose a nourishing shampoo. If your hair is normal, choose a moisturizing shampoo, because it will allow you to keep your hair in the best conditions.
If you want to accelerate the growth of your hair, do not hesitate to massage your scalp! This will increase blood circulation and therefore make your hair grow much faster. It is also important to frequently cut the damaged ends of the hair, because the deterioration of the ends has a negative impact on the whole hair and prevents its growth. It should be noted that cutting hair contributes to the oxygenation of hair follicles, which stimulates growth.
You may be wondering “How many times should I wash my hair in a week?”. Well, this depends on the nature of your hair. For oily hair, it is recommended to wash it twice a week. On the other hand, if you have dry hair, it is better to wash it once a week. And if you have normal hair, wash it 2 or 3 times a week.
For a successful hair routine, use a conditioner or mask after your shampoo, as this will help detangle and make your hair easier to comb. In addition, your hair will be much softer and more manageable.
