With the holidays just round the corner, it always helps…
There are many different types of skin care products available for women with different requirements or tastes. One of those types of skin care products has become very popular among women due to one key factor – it’s warming capabilities. One thing many women who use the warming skin care products love is the calm, relaxed feeling they have when using these products, but they aren’t entirely sure what the warming effect is supposed to do, if anything, and why the product has just such an effect. Today, Vine Vera would like to take a minute to explore the reasons behind warming skin care products, and what make them so effective.
What is Warming Skincare?
Warming skin care products are those in which, as the title says, warm up or heat up when applied to the face or skin. They sometimes work on their own, and other times need a boost from other products applied to the skin along with the specific heating product.
How Does a Warming Skin Care Product Work?
Warming skin care products work by heating up the pores, allowing them to open and expand, and allowing the product to penetrate deep into the pores, removing dirt, debris, oil, and other toxins from within the skin. The product, once penetrating the skin’s initial layer, bonds to the debris filling the pores which can cause clogs, breakouts, and acne, and when the product is washed or peeled off, along goes the unwanted particles with the product. Many warming skin care products come in creams, gels, serums, and masques.
Are Warming Skin Care Products Appropriate for All Skin Types?
There are many different forms of warming skin care products, such as the Vine Vera Chianti Collection, which are suitable for various skin types. There are even products available for those with sensitive skin. You will need to read the packaging or product specifications online or in person before purchasing a product to ensure you are getting a product which works well with your particular skin care needs.
As with any product, there is always risk of allergic reaction or irritation, which is why a spot test is recommended. The safest way to complete a spot test is to test the product on the inner wrist area, or inner corner of the elbow and leave the product applied to the skin for a full 24 hours before rinsing off. If no reaction occurs, you should be okay to use the product.
What Types of Ingredients are In Warming Skin Care Products?
Each brand and product is different, and each brand uses different ingredients within their products. High end product lines will always opt for high quality, high potency ingredients, while other less expensive products will use sub-par, at best, ingredients which don’t have the ability to do what the more expensive brands are capable of. As with anything, it’s always best to opt for high end whenever possible. Some of the ingredients found within high end warming skin care products are:
- Precious Minerals, such as gold or diamond powder
- Essential Oils
And there are generally many more ingredients one could expect to find within these types of products. Again, every product is different, so this is a base line of what to expect to find. Vine Vera believes a good skin care regimen is essential to the overall health of your skin. If you haven’t given warming skin care products a try in the past, today would be a good place to start.
