Nowadays, there are many cosmetic brands, and everyone has more than one brand on his face every day. Especially in summer, in addition to basic skin care, sunscreen is also added. It is impossible to get out of the door without applying three or five layers of skin care. But these cosmetic ingredients are superimposed together, and some are not in sync. Whether you are a maintenance expert or not, after the superimposed application of bottles and cans, the phenomenon of “mud rubbing” is always unavoidable. The makeup that I worked so hard on turned into mud, and I felt that the whole makeup was white. Is it because my cosmetics from hundreds of oceans are fake? Or is it because my baby Mercury bullies me even with cosmetics?
The editor tells you, don’t think too much, here is the reason! Skin care products are also compatible, do you know?
First of all, let’s get to know what this mud looks like?
The accurate description of “rubbing mud” is that after using some skin care products, you can rub out a small strip of mud on the face, long or short, more or less, the color can be dark or light; yes The “rubbing mud” was described as “similar to white desquamation”.
For example, after using skin care products, apply a base cream, which is obviously super easy to use separately, but white crumbs may appear after stacking, and it is easy to take off makeup.
Any big-brand cosmetics and skin care products will have mud rubbing phenomenon. Once they encounter mud rubbing products, many people simply give up and do not use them, or think that these are floating on the face due to poor absorption, but they are not!
So let’s sort out some cosmetics and skin care products that are prone to “fighting” to see which ingredients and texture conflicts they are. Pay more attention to the order before using them.
There are so many reasons why skin care products “rubbing mud” can scare you, let’s talk about them one by one.
The representative is improper use: skin care products and makeup products are mixed and matched indiscriminately!
Women have a lot of bottles and cans, and many women will unknowingly apply a lot of layers on their faces. As everyone knows, whether it is skin care products or skin care products, excessive stacking and random mixing will increase the possibility of rubbing mud.
Gels and proteins
(High molecular organic compound) + foundation / sunscreen
Among them, gel products are most likely to cause mud rubbing. After applying moisturizing gel or essence and other products containing polymer glue and water-soluble thickener, immediately apply foundation or sunscreen containing titanium dioxide. , Zinc oxide and other metal ion products, will produce salt, which is the white crumbs we see with the naked eye!
The encounter of gel skin care products with macromolecular colloids and powders containing sebum-absorbing ingredients is the most serious combination of mud rubbing. Avoid using them together as much as possible. If you use too many skin care products that contain gum ingredients, after the water in the product evaporates, a large amount of gum will have a chemical reaction with other unmatched ingredients.
The transparent jelly texture is mostly gel products.
If you use a protein-based product, you can use the protein-containing product in the back, so that the protein can be separated inside to prevent the two products from crashing.
In the order of use, the smaller molecule is used first, and the molecule is larger than collagen.
If you want to use them at the same time, they are cleansing, lotion, collagen, and cream in order; in the dosage form, the water-based ingredients are rubbed first, and then the lotion or cream is rubbed.
For example, Kiehl’s Blue Water is also a mud-rubbing product criticized by countless people. It is indeed very easy to rub mud with subsequent skin care products. If the blue water is applied after washing the face, the subsequent care products will have a mud-rubbing reaction. This should be due to the high concentration of polymer glue in the blue water. Perhaps it is caused by the above-mentioned aluminum salt.
There are only two ways to reduce mud rubbing:
1 is to use other lotions first and then blue water, put the blue water in the last step of skin care.
2 is to use the matching lotion of blue water
Super moisturizing mask + foundation
Because a more moisturizing mask will leave a film on the surface of the skin after use, it will make the foundation difficult to adhere and spread.
For example, sk2 youth face mask, you can wait to rub mud after applying it without washing your face. The high molecular polymers and proteins in its nutrient solution will condense into a lump to form a layer of film-like substance. If the follow-up skin care products are applied immediately after application, it is likely to condense into lumps together and cannot be absorbed.
Moisturizing Cream + Oil Control Loose Powder
The ingredients of the moisturizing cream contain a very large amount of oil, but the oil control powder is just the opposite product. It will remove the dry oil and white mud will appear when the two touch together.
This phenomenon often occurs when products containing strong hydrophilic emulsifiers such as lotions and creams are applied, such as fatty acid salts, and products containing metal ions, such as foundations and barrier creams, are applied immediately. The ingredients will also be changed from water-soluble products. Switch to non-water-soluble salts.
Salicylic acid + isolation milk
Brushing acid acne skin, using up acid products and then using zinc oxide powder for sunscreen, is simply a disaster.
You must do your homework before using acid. The sunscreen should not be superimposed at will. Use it in a small area first, and stop immediately when redness, swelling and molting occur.
L-C or anti-acne products, such as acid, salicylic acid, etc., and then rubbing products with zinc oxide powder such as barrier milk, it is easy to produce sediment. Put on sunscreen after the maintenance procedure. If chemical deposits are generated, it will affect the isolation effect of the sunscreen.
Powdery sunscreen + moisturizing base milk together will destroy the sun protection layer
Sunscreen cream usually contains titanium dioxide or titanium dioxide aqueous solution, which is not compatible with oil, and it is easy to form “mud” or white dust after rubbing. The sunscreen ingredients are already in the mud, and the sunscreen effect is greatly reduced.
If you can’t judge the ingredients of skin care products, start with sunscreen products. Sunscreen products that use physical sunscreen generally contain metal ions, especially zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
After applying the foundation, I found that my skin was dry, so I added a layer of skin care products on top. As a result, the powder on the skin is rubbed into “mud”. Skin care products from different emulsification systems may react with each other and rub mud. For example, some water and water containing glycerin, when used with some skin care products, will have muddy phenomenon.
If your cream and lotion and the ingredients of the makeup base come together to rub mud together, you can try to put a lotion between the lotion and the liquid foundation for maintenance. The effect will be much better.
Q: Does “rubbing mud” mean that the skin care products are not absorbed at all? The maintenance is done in vain?
A: This really needs to improve concentration. Don’t think that you can wipe off the “mud” formed by rubbing mud and shake it off! Rubbing mud is not just an unpleasant feeling on the skin, but it means that the entire maintenance and sun protection procedures have been exhausted. Need to start again. When the sunscreen is applied to rub mud, in addition to the previous skin care products are disrupted, the sunscreen effect is also greatly reduced. If the curse is essence, cream, etc., their active ingredients may have been rubbed into the “mud”, and naturally they cannot play a role in maintenance.
How to reduce mud rubbing in daily care?
In summer, you can cut your skin to exfoliate once in 20 days. For sensitive or extremely dry girls, you can exfoliate once in about 40 days.
2 Change the maintenance program
In the process of care, you must wait for the skin to absorb the last skin care product before proceeding to the next care, which can avoid the phenomenon of rubbing mud to a large extent. The order of care is to permeate the small molecules first, do a good job of hydrating first, and then do other work afterwards, the skin metabolism will be accelerated, and the absorption of the product will be better.
3 Warm products are easy to absorb
When the temperature is too low, many oily products will solidify a bit. At this time, after rubbing your hands, take out the product and palms, spread your hands and warm them, and then apply to the face, warm your hands and cover the area where the skin care products are applied, and press , Promote absorption.
4 Change the technique, change from wiping to shooting
Try to apply skin care products with gentle pats. Don’t pull back and forth to save trouble. This will not allow the product to be absorbed well, but will make the product muddy, and the skin will appear more easily due to the pulling. Small fine lines.
