Many women in the pursuit of beauty are trying more and more new cosmetics. Over time, everyone wants to look younger, fresher and more attractive.
Aggressive procedures such as exfoliation and scrub often irritate the delicate skin of the face, causing itching, tightness and redness. For people with sensitive skin, they become unacceptable. However, everyone wants to be irresistible, and this can be achieved. An alternative to these procedures is gommage.
This procedure appeared in our country relatively recently, so not many people know all its advantages. But gommage has already gained great popularity around the world, as the result exceeds expectations, despite its apparent simplicity.
The gommage procedure is performed by a special tool of the same name, which is a thick mixture, and is applied as simply as a face mask. It can be performed both in the salon and at home. In this case, gommage is used both by itself and as a preparation of the skin for other procedures, such as applying a mask or face cream.
Gommage can be performed on any part of the body: face, arms, legs and over the entire surface. This procedure is designed to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, cleansing it of dead cells and various impurities. Our skin can cope with this task on its own, but due to many factors, such as stress, environmental influences, diseases, and even age, it performs this function less well, becomes dull, gray and lifeless, looks much older. In such a situation, we can help the skin with a gommage procedure.
Unlike the usual scrub procedure, gommage does not contain hard abrasive particles. It performs its function due to the content of fruit acids in the composition, which gently act on the upper layers of the skin and, as it were, dissolve dead cells. In its composition, gommage also contains aromatic oils that make the procedure even more enjoyable, various tonic and skin care additives that give it extra smoothness and softness.
In addition to the usual cleansing, gommage helps to increase blood flow, accelerates metabolic processes in cells, and eliminates congestion. Thanks to this, after the procedure, the skin looks radiant, shine appears, it seems younger and fresher.
Gommage can be easily performed at home. The product must be applied with fingertips to dry skin. The composition is applied with massaging circular movements to the entire face along the massage lines, excluding the area around the eyes and lips. The mask lasts for about fifteen minutes until it dries completely, after which the formed film is removed with light rolling movements that do not stretch the skin surface. After the procedure, the face is rinsed with cool water. In the event that the skin has any damage, inflammation or acne, it is not necessary to roll the gommage. The composition can be removed simply by rinsing with warm water.
You can enhance the gommage effect by steaming your face immediately before the procedure, or by applying a hot towel to it to open the pores for a better effect of the composition. After the procedure, the skin absorbs care products better. Therefore, it is recommended to apply a moisturizing or nourishing mask on it, and then use a cream.
Due to the fact that the gommage contains no solid particles that can cause mechanical damage, it is suitable for all types of skin, including sensitive, thin, fading. The procedure is performed no more than three times a week, depending on the type of skin. For oily and combination skin, you can use the composition more often than for dry and sensitive skin. It is not recommended to perform the procedure before visiting the beach, as well as to stay in the wind, frost and direct sunlight for a long time immediately after using the product.
Of course, you should choose a means for carrying out gommage carefully, giving preference to proven manufacturers. Perform the procedure without breaking the technique. In this case, the result will be excellent, and the skin will delight with its young and fresh look for a long time.
