KNOW YOUR SKIN           

 

Sensual & Gorgeous

 

 

TRUE DRY - EXTRA DRY; DEHYDRATED

Characteristics are most visible on face, neck, décolletage and hands.

 

  • rough texture

  • loss of elasticity

  • uneven skin tone

  • flakiness

  • fine or deep lines

  • dull complexion

  • broken capillaries

  • lack of moisture caused by inadequate production of the sebaceous glands

  • proliferation of cracking and chapping

 

 

DRY SKIN

  • lack of moisture caused by low level of sebum

  • tightness

  • looks dull especially around eyes and cheeks

  • prone to fine lines

  • slightly  flaky

  • never gets shiny - has a matte appearance 

  • has very small or invisible pores

  • feels uncomfortably dry until moisturizer is applied

  • may be exacerbated by excessive sun, harsh products, medications

  • worse with air conditioning, extremes of temperatures and by wind

  • poor diet and minimal water intake may also contribute

  • possible deficiency of Vitamin A and B

 

 

Add into the equation:

 

Genetics

  • individual genetically determined

  • hormonally triggered

  • decreasing sebum production is a natural consequence of the ageing process

 

Environmental damage

  • accelerates fine lines and wrinkles

  • exposure thickens the underlying layers

  • aggravates and deepens superficial lines

  • slows cell regeneration

 

Resolution

  • Restore skin resilience - replenish moisture and hydration through a daily regimen designed to rebuild support layers and retain vital moisture

  • Aid from within - Increased water intake and a nutritional diet help maintain optimum hydration for the complexion

  • Extra protection for the skin in cold or windy weather and on hot / dry days  

  • Always treat the skin gently - this will also aid to prevent broken capillaries

  • Product selection - specifically balanced, natural products deliver moisture and nutrients via a daily moisturizing regime

  • Treats - Regular exfoliation and weekly masks aid in removing dead skin cells and environmental pollutants; stimulating the skin, increasing blood circulation and assisting with new cell growth; encouraging skin glow
