Mineral water is an excellent cosmetic product that moisturizes and nourishes the skin. The correct use of mineral water for the face is the elixir of youth, beauty and health.
Benefits of mineral water for the skin
The mineral water contains a large number of beneficial elements that soothe and soften the skin, as well as eliminate the feeling of dryness and tightness. In addition, mineral water has an immunostimulating and strengthening effect, therefore, in combination with other medicinal preparations, it is very effective in the treatment of various skin diseases.
When using mineral water for skin care, remember that before becoming a cosmetic product, carbonated mineral water must stand in an open container for 30-40 minutes.
This is necessary so that carbon dioxide comes out of it, which can cause irritation and dryness of the skin.
For washing it is better to use "live" water with a content of no more than 200-500 milligrams of salts per 1 liter. It is better not to use more salty water for washing. But if the skin is oily, porous and combined, you need to wash with mineral water with a high salt content. It helps to tighten pores and reduce greasy shine. Low-mineralized ground water has an excellent tonic and softening effect on normal or dry skin.
Plus, after removing makeup, the mineral water can be used as an excellent toner to help prevent stretching of the skin. Contrast washing is no less useful - alternating cold and warm water. And to refresh your face, wipe it with an ice cube made from mineral water with a little sea salt or lemon juice. This is especially useful for preventing the appearance of wrinkles.
Washing with mineral water
Pour water into a spray bottle and spray the water on your skin several times a day. This is especially useful during the heating season, when the air in the room is very dry, from which the skin loses moisture. In addition, it is very useful to douse yourself with mineral water after taking a bath, because the skin of the body also needs hydration.
In addition, you can prepare a mineral water-based lotion. To do this, bring 200-250 milliliters of mineral water to a boil and pour it over 2 tablespoons of the herb. If you have oily to combination skin, use nettle, chamomile, or calendula. If dry and normal, give preference to mint or birch leaves. Let the broth steep in a sealed container for 20-30 minutes, and then strain.
Store the resulting product in the refrigerator, but no more than 5 days.
Every day after washing your face, wipe your face with a homemade mineral water-based lotion. It will leave your skin looking fresh, smooth and radiant.
