L’ANGOLO DI SISSI a cura di Silvia Cassi

I'll be back in my corner on cosmetic skincare notes and considerations of the moment, few thoughts on such cosmetic active can make an "upgrade" to the daily routine of the face, especially over 40, with the first failure, discoloration, signs of expression, rosacea ... I do not miss anything.

I do not think you need more products or more steps compared to a skincare "young", but it just gradually introduce some ingredients that can help in making facial care more satisfying, always choosing formulations suitable to my needs of "naturalness". I recently spotted two small British companies , Disciple e Lixirskin, both work on the concept of "less in more 'applied to cosmetics, few rich products of the right ingredients for a healthy and glowing skin.

I start with the most essential point, and daily, evening cleansing: Night Shift da Disciple, Anxiety and stress can cause inflammation to the skin as adult acne, eczema and premature aging, with their formulas rich in adaptogens all products Disciple work not only on the skin, but also on body and mind counteracting the physical and psychological stress. This cleansing oil deep cleansing, removing make-up with effective, impurities and excess sebum; in the formula is present Cactus Oil, which it helps to slow down moisture loss, Hemp oil and seeds to cleanse without drying out the skin , and above all it contains a mix of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA derived from fruits), indicated to remove the layers of dirt and accelerate cell turnover, essential to reduce spots, wrinkles and acne scars. Just for exfoliating properties of these ingredients should be used only in the evening routine, it is very gentle on the skin and is an excellent alternative to aggressive physical scrubs. At the time of removal with the essential oil of Neroli muslin and warm water it helps to relax with a delicate and unique scent.

Increasingly I am using Disciple Dreamy Skin, a facial oil dedicated to night, rich in linoleic acid, which helps to balance the production of sebum and improves the texture and elasticity of the skin, thanks to the presence of rosehip, Watermelon seed oil and ingredient "prince" of a regenerating routine ( and possibly anti-aging ...), il Retinyl palmitate: It is considered a milder version of retinol, namely Vitamin A, not as effective in stimulating the production of collagen, because our skin must first convert it to use it, but it is much less invasive in side effects such as redness and irritation. The essential oils of Chamomile Blue Jasmine and help reduce any inflammation and relieve stress with aroma-action terapica.

As a basic ingredient of the daily routine I entered with Vitamin C Vitamin C Pastedi Lixir (Ascorbic acid 10%) , a small line of cosmetics essential and effective; It consists of a mask to rinse after a few minutes, as a cleanser, which neutralizes the oxidation of sebum and proteins, It stimulates collagen and elastin, revitalizing the complexion instantly, for a firmer and smoother skin. Apply on dry face and eye area, after having massaged with wet hands she leaves on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse and apply the usual treatments.

Last but not the least trick to an effective skincare, essential when using active ingredients such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A, is the use of a sunscreen throughout the year, perhaps the most important anti-aging tool to prevent discoloration and cell aging.

See you soon in my cosmetic corner!
