To know own type of skin is very important before different procedures of skin care, including skin peeling. If you have greasy skin, you should make peeling of face skin once in 5 days. If your skin is dry, you should make peeling once in 10 days.
Also the final part of this procedure depends on type of skin. Wash scrub from greasy skin with warm water at first and then rinse face with cold water. But from dry skin scrub is washed only with warm water. For sensitive skin use the water of room-temperature. After peeling rub the face with tonic and put nourishing cream for your type of skin.
Make special mask-scrubs for face skin, which peel dead parts of skin and soften renewed skin. And of course, don’t forget about your own type of skin. This mask is for dry and sensitive skin. Take 2 table-spoons of sour cream and add 1 table-spoon of ground coffee.

In summer face skin pigmentation becomes plainly visible. Those, who know what this is, agree with me that it is not good-looking. Are there any means helping to get rid of pigmental spots? Yes, there are some. Cosmetologists usually advise to use whitening and peeling means. Of course you can use natural means too. For example, lemon juice, viburnum juice, and also juice of red currant, sauerkraut, fresh cucumber, parsley, grapefruit. You always find the whitening mean in every season.
You’ll get the good result making compresses with wine vinegar and clabber. Wet wad of cotton wool in 5% solution of vinegar and put on the pigmental spot. In 10 minutes put compress from clabber mixed with wheat flour on the same place. Proportion is ¼ glass of clabber to 1 tea-spoon of flour. Make such compress every day for one week and then every other day. When spots become lighter use this procedure once a week.
Mask from sauerkraut can be made every day. Wet napkins in the juice of sauerkraut and put on the pigmental areas 3 times one by one for 10 minutes.
Mask from beans is easy-made and effective. Pour 1,5 glass of beans with 1,5 glass of water and keep to infuse for 36 hours. Then knead, squeeze and add juice of one lemon. Put this mixture on the face before going to bed. If skin is oily, make this mask every other day, if skin is dry, make mask twice a week.
