5 golden rules for the care of problematic skin

5 zlatnih pravila za njegu problematične kože

Problematic skin is not difficult to take care of. It is only important that you stick to proven rules and quality natural care.

The selection of products, as well as the entire routine of caring for problematic skin, still most often boils down to trial and error. That's why it's important to get to know your skin type and all its needs.

1. Carefully choose facial cleansing products

If you have skin prone to oiliness and irregularities, you must have thought at least once that you just need to clean it more often. That's a myth, and here's why. Excessive use of facial cleansing products causes additional secretion of sebum on the surface of the skin . Because of this, pores can become even more clogged and the appearance of comedones, pimples, acne and other enemies of a healthy, clean and even complexion.

It is enough to clean the facial skin twice; morning and evening . For your skin type and condition, choose products that are effective enough and do not leave behind a feeling of dryness and tightness. Definitely try to avoid 'cleaners' that contain the drying surfactant SLS. Instead, introduce products enriched with nourishing, nourishing and soothing ingredients such as immortelle oil into your routine.

2. Commit to deep skin hydration

If we had to point out the most important rule for problem skin care, it would be proper hydration. Classic dedicated cosmetics for mixed and oily skin often contain drying active ingredients , and alcohol is high in the composition of the product itself. Long-term use of such preparations also leads to deep drying, which can trigger new irregularities.

Every skin, even oily skin, needs its daily dose of hydration . Of course, it is crucial to choose care with ingredients that are non-comedogenic (do not clog pores), but contain nutrients that deeply nourish and moisturize the skin. Serums, especially those containing hyaluronic acid , are an excellent choice for promoting hydration. They are based on a higher concentration of active ingredients, and are applied to a wet face . Due to their quick absorption, it is not difficult to include them in the daily routine, usually before applying your favorite face cream.


The skin needs hydration inside and out.

3. Be regular with exfoliation and mask

The recipe for healthy, beautiful and shiny skin must also include a deeper weekly cleaning. With the help of peeling, you will remove all the deeper impurities from the pores, and rid the skin of excess skin cells . With gentle circular movements and natural grains of olive and apricot pits in the exfoliation, you will encourage better blood circulation, skin renewal, even out the complexion and restore a healthy color to the cheeks. When you notice that your skin needs refreshment, reach for a nourishing mask. You can apply it to the face, neck and décolletage and thus nourish the skin with rich natural ingredients such as honey, chamomile and the indispensable immortelle essential oil.

4. Choose the right care

A good cream that will stimulate the renewal of slightly tired skin is also essential. This is exactly what Olival Regenerating Cream for special care is for. The wealth of natural ingredients such as calendula, macadamia oil, essential oil of immortelle, calendula and evening primrose promotes hydration and renewal of the skin's surface, which becomes smooth and silky. The light, moisturizing emulsion is specially adapted to mixed and oily skin types, it is quickly absorbed and does not make it greasy , which makes it an ideal base for make-up.

5. Pay attention to the choice of make-up, water intake, diet...

Quality natural cosmetics may be the most important part of caring for problematic skin, but it is certainly not the only one. The health of the skin of the face, and even the body, depends on many factors, especially on diet, stress, hormonal status, the environment in which you are and - your choices.

If you pay attention to sufficient water intake, choose decorative cosmetics, remove them regularly and properly, and use sun protection, your skin will notice this immediately . Avoid touching your face with your fingers, using wipes to remove make-up, and suddenly introducing several different products into your facial care routine. It is not for nothing that the overall health is reflected in the skin. Observe your skin and take care of it with special care.
