Definition of the term Skintermitter fasting
As you know, we are talking more and more about slow cosmetics and green cosmetics lately. With a major concern in our minds: taking care of our skin with healthy and high quality products. Wouldn’t the solution be to take breaks in our beauty routines? Rather than applying day care every morning and evening (even natural ones), isn’t it better to let our skin fast? This is what we saw freshly arriving on social networks in the news feeds: skintermitter fasting Or cosmetic fasting ! At the initiative of this beauty trend? Dermatologists closely followed by beauty influencers and green beautistas who swear by new cosmetic trials to flatter their skin. We must say that the idea is enticing since it consists in let your skin breathe between two treatments.
How does this intermittent skin fasting work?
Do you want to try this natural beauty technique? Simply start by letting your skin breathe by giving it breaks on certain days. No need to be radical in withdrawing all your care from one day to the next. Start by stopping putting on make-up on the weekends or during the day if you are telecommuting or even if you are going to work. Stop the multiple treatments in the evening and in the morning and limit yourself to cleansing the skin with mild soap to remove dirt. Exit layering. You will see for yourself, after only a few days, that your epidermis will be quickly plumped upe. For what ? Quite simply because you stop feeding it with products that are too aggressive. The main objective is really to redo your epidermal barrier. Some active ingredients that are too powerful (even if they are effective), attack the epidermis over time. In the long term, they can cause irritation, redness and clog the pores of the skin.
What beauty and care products can be used during a skin fast?
Some products still have their interest during your beauty break. This is particularly the case of anti-UV sunscreen which protects against the harmful rays of the sun, the main cause of premature ageing. Morning and evening cleansing is essential, but with a natural product. A soap without soap, for example, is an ideal choice. Cleansing your skin remains essential, because it is constantly subject to external aggressions. It therefore needs to be dismantled. It is also possible to use the moisturizing properties of pure and 100% natural vegetable oils. What is important is to choose an oil that matches your skin needs. Otherwise, you can always submit organic moisturizer on your skin to make sure you rebalance it during your fast.
