It would be nice to have impeccable genetics and admire peach-colored velvety skin all your life. But not everyone is so lucky. How to be?

How to achieve perfectly smooth skin: 5 tips from a beautician

1. Daily basic care 

The words "beauty" and "grooming" have become synonymous. This is true, as regular skin care efforts lead to the desired result, which we see in the mirror.

Coco Chanel said: “Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50 you get the face you deserve." What needs to be done to make the face perfect.


“You have to, you have to wash yourself in the mornings and evenings!” - says Korney Chukovsky's poem "Moydodyr". It's right! It is harmful to proceed to other stages, ignoring purification. Together with the cream, microbes will penetrate into the skin, and waste products, make-up residues , all kinds of pollution, once in the pores, will interfere with its normal self-cleaning and breathing.

Cleansers can be water, oil or alcohol based.

  • Micellar water is suitable for any type. It perfectly captures all impurities from the surface of the epidermis.
  • Dry and sensitive are better suited cosmetic milk or cream.
  • Fatty oils are effectively cleaned with hydrophilic oils. They do their job well and then wash off easily with water.
  • For oily, pimple-prone skin, alcohol-based lotions are suitable. But they should not be widely used, since dehydration and degreasing leads to a boomerang effect: the skin begins to secrete sebaceous secret even more actively. Such funds are acceptable for point application (for example, to treat a single abscess).


This is the step that is most often skipped. In vain! Tonic performs several tasks:

  • removes the remnants of the cleanser, cosmetics, pollution;
  • normalizes skin ph (cleansers alkalize);
  • prepares for the final stage; 
  • helps the cream penetrate deeper into the skin layers.

Basic care

This stage includes the application of serums, creams, fluids, emulsions that contain active ingredients. These products moisturize, nourish, protect the face.They are selected depending on the type of skin and tasks, as well as on the season (in winter we protect the face from low temperatures, in summer - from ultraviolet radiation).

Keep in mind: choosing your daily care products is not an easy task. Whether you can handle it is hard to say. After all, a cream or serum that helped your sister or girlfriend may not suit you. Therefore, to achieve a perfectly clean face, consult a cosmetologist.

2. Let's start the update

Let's start the update

Now let's take a closer look at the question. The keratinized cells of the epidermis, having fulfilled their function, die off, but continue to accumulate on the surface of the skin, making it dull, uneven, giving an earthy tint. How to make the perfect face? Two types of products help to remove spent cells - scrubs and peels.


Beauticians try to warn against active face scrubbing: scrubs usually contain too large, coarse abrasive particles that can damage the skin. With sensitive skin, they are completely contraindicated. If you are not ready to give up facial scrubs, choose more gentle ones, which include not particles of coffee beans and nutshells, but soft synthetic microspheres.

But body scrub is a very useful procedure. It evens out the relief of the skin, and also causes active blood flow, improves metabolism, improves tone, stimulates lymph flow, and creates a massage effect.


They are domestic and professional. The first of them contain a moderate concentration of active substances, so they usually do not give a pronounced effect. At the same time, self-administration of peels is not always safe. It is better to consult with a cosmetologist. It controls the depth of penetration of the drug, the strength of its impact, and will also help you choose the type of peeling. 

Peelings also stimulate the production of collagen, improve microcirculation, even out the relief, narrow pores, get rid of fine wrinkles and age spots. The result is smooth, even, rejuvenated skin.

3. Useful material

Another type of skin care products are masks. They come in different types: washable, indelible, film masks, alginate, fabric. The choice depends on preference.

But each mask is selected according to the type of skin and the type of problems we want to solve. Masks cleanse the face, brighten its tone, moisturize, nourish with useful substances, remove puffiness, and reduce the manifestations of rosacea.

If you have healthy skin, you can try different masks. If there are problems, consult with a cosmetologist.

4. Nutrition from within 

There is a whole group of biologically active components, the lack of which can cause problems. Make sure that your diet regularly contains foods rich in vitamins A, C, E, group B, as well as microelements - zinc, selenium, copper, iron, silicon, sulfur. Protein and healthy fats are also needed.

To make up for the deficiency of these substances, adjust the diet . It should be balanced, rational, containing all the necessary components. The skin is not a vital organ (such as the heart or brain), so strict diets deprive it of nutrients in the first place. Make up the diet correctly - and the reflection in the mirror will delight you.

Don't forget about water. The right set of products will not make the skin healthy if it is dehydrated . The norm is 30 ml of water per kg of body weight.

5. Problem skin

In dermatology, this concept is applied to oily acne -prone skin that needs careful care to prevent clogged pores and comedone formation, as well as treatment with drugs. Proper selection of funds improves her condition. But there are situations that require a visit to a dermatologist, especially with acne, the severe forms of which are treated with medication. Self-medication is unacceptable! Cosmetologists deal with the consequences of acne. This is a difficult job aimed at leveling the relief of the skin, covered with numerous deep scars. 

In a broad sense, "problem" can be called any skin that has defects: spider veins , peeling, rashes, scars, age spots. These manifestations are associated either with the negative impact of the environment, or be a manifestation of diseases. If there are problems, consult a dermatologist or cosmetologist. This will save you from mistakes, the cost of which may be your beauty.
