Skincare is a habit. Not an overnight miracle. Healthy skin is a result of proper skincare. It means you can wear less makeup and let your skin shine through.
It’s never too late to start a healthy skincare routine because the skin is constantly replacing itself.
Why should you care about skincare?
Caring about skincare might be quite trendy these days but no matter what, giving your skin some love has both cosmetic and medical benefits.
For instance, although you can’t slow down the passage of time, with a finely tuned skin care regimen you can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and sun damage some more minor skin concerns, such as dryness or oiliness.
For those with specific skin conditions such as Psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and acne.
Skincare isn’t always optional and requires a bit more thought. For one treating a specific skin condition often means you need to employ a particular skin care regimen and for another, your condition may make your skin more sensitive to ingredients and products in general.
Finding a skincare routine that works can offer a vital way someone can manage and treat their condition.
Skin type is the description of how and why your skin looks, feels, and behaves as it does.
The four most common skin types used in the cosmetic/skincare industry are:
-Normal: This skin type displays a smooth texture and a rosy, clear surface, with fine pores. There are no visible blemishes, greasy patches or flaky areas.
Sebum production, moisture content. Normal skin is often found in young persons.
-Oily: Skin of this type is characterized by an increased amount of lipids on the skin surface due to overreactive sebaceous glands. It is shiny and thick often with enlarged pores.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads and other blemishes. It occurs more often in men than in women and it predominantly affects adolescents and younger persons.
-Dry: Characterized by a lack of moisture in its corneous layer, dry skin results in tightness and even flaking. The skin appears dull especially on the cheeks and around the eyes. It may lack elasticity with accentuated fine lines and wrinkles. In more severe cases, itching and burning may occur. Extremely dry skin shows signs of cracking and fissuring.
-Combination: a combination skin is rather dry in some parts of the body and oily in other localizations.
Mixed facial skin tends towards dryness on the cheeks and around the eyes while being only in the t-zone [nose, forehead, chin]
The dry parts and oily parts require different skincare regimens.
Let’s talk about acne
Acne occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged, most often on the face, neck, back, and chest.
Testosterone plays a part, as does heredity.
Once a pore becomes clogged, it traps skin oil inside. Bacteria grows in this oil and can cause an inflammatory response in the skin.
What causes Acne?
1: Hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy, and menstrual cycle.
2: Cleaning or scrubbing your skin excessively.
3: Cosmetics, when you use a certain cosmetic product that is not accepted by your skin, the side effects could be acne.
4: Squeezing or picking at existing pimples, while touching your face is certainly tempting and can happen without you even realizing it making sure not to touch your face throughout the day is especially essential for those looking to control OILY SKIN.
