The skin is the largest body and outer covering and is responsible for protecting our body from the outside world. A good skin conveys good health. The skin is the first reflection of our age. We should strive to improve the quality of skin to keep ourselves healthy inside out. Skin analysis is the first step to improving skin. The skin is a clear indicator of what happens inside the body. There are several skin types and treatments available for most problematic skins. Personal regimens are a good insight to the type of skin. It is important to determine the type of skin and then work towards alienating the problem associated with it. Each skin type has to be worked differently in conjunction with their problems.
Dry and oily skin
Skin can be either dry or oily and this helps in determining how it might feel after washing. Dry skin feels flaky after washing and oily skins are shiny after being washed. Some popular signs of oily skin are acne, pores and blackheads. Dry skin signs include cracks, tightness and flakiness. Oily skins seldom require moisturiser. Oily skins possess acne and enlarged pores and dry skin leads to premature and unsightly wrinkling of the skin.
Sensitive skins easily develop lumps and redness. They are predominantly difficult to define but are easily irritated by use of certain chemical products. Skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, rosacea, eczema and contact dermatitis are indicators of sensitive skin.
This is an easy resultant of dry skin which causes wrinkling of the skin.
Exposure to UV rays, hormonal imbalances and trauma are just some causes of skin pigmentation. Pigmentation can be distinguished as dermal and epidermal.
The skin may be the largest organ in our body, but it requires utmost attention and care. Skin analysis gives you a very good picture of the state of your skin and facilitates optimal diagnosis and treatment.
