The quality of skin is an all important aspect of your prettiness; low quality skin deteriorates your charm and deduces your voluptuousness. You feel ashamed to expose yourself socially and it further decreases your confidence level.
It is quite difficult to maintain the quality of
skin nowadays, pollution, bad eating habits and reluctance toward
fitness all contribute in hampering the health of your skin. The
result is that you look older than your age and face several problem
like wrinkles, sunburns etc that result in ugly looks.
Types of Skin Problems
Infections, overexposure to sunlight, follicle dysfunction, and hormonal imbalance are the most common causes of skin disorders. Other factors that contribute to skin problems are Parasites, external substances, cell dysfunction, genetic factors, stress, and aging.
Acne: Acne results when small kernels of sebum (oil), skin cells, and bacteria fill up hair follicles, causing blackheads and whiteheads to appear. The sebum ruptures the walls of the follicles, forming pimples and boil-like eruptions in nearby tissue. If the sebum is further altered by bacteria, it may cause even more irritation to the surrounding skin.
Rosacea: Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that produces flushing and dilation of the small blood vessels in the face. Tiny pimples also appear. As the disease progresses, small, thin, red lines may appear on the skin's surface. In advanced cases -- and usually only in men -- the nose becomes bulbous and red, the cheeks become puffy, and thick bumps develop on the lower half of the nose and adjacent cheek areas. We don't know what causes this condition, which is called rhinophyma, but the problem may be aggravated by stress, infection, vitamin deficiencies, and glandular upset.
Psoriasis: Psoriasis results in an overproduction of skin cells. The surplus skin leads to thickening and scaling. The resulting silvery plaques generally appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. The severity of psoriasis ranges from mild, undetected forms to rare cases in which the scales cover the entire body. Psoriasis may cause pitting of the fingernail surface, thickening and crumbling of the nail plate, and separation of the nail from the nail bed.
Basics of Skin care
Skin deserves special care, it reflects your state of health, being soft and smooth when well cared for, or dry and flaky when taken for granted. To have beautiful, soft, young-looking skin, pamper it. Drink 2 liters of water daily Enjoy a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables Try to have a sound, restful sleep Take high quality supplements, including a vitamin & mineral and an Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Practice a daily skin care regime . Know your skin type Exercise regularly Keep stress levels to a minimum Limit intake of caffeine and alcohol Avoid excess exposure to extremes of temperature
Following a skincare plan also helps to a great extent in improving the quality of your skin . Do not forget to clean your face and neck every morning and night. This helps in eradicating accumulated dead cells, perspiration and make-up mixed with the grime in the atmosphere which results in dull and lifeless appearance. After cleansing use a toner to remove the last traces of cleanser, tighten and tone the pores.
Next apply moisturizer. Pollution, sunlight, harsh weather, air conditioning and central heating dehydrate the skin. This causes dry and dull skin. Two liters of water daily will hydrate your skin internally. You should also add moisture from the outside. A moisturizer will help prevent your skin's moisture from evaporating into the atmosphere. All skin types need moisturizers.
When showering use soap free bodies wash. This
is gentler on the skin and cuts down on cleaning the shower recess!!
Apply a lotion, or spray on, body moisturizer to your whole body after showering.
Skin Care Products
Renova is used for the treatment of wrinkles, brown spots, and surface roughness on the face. It is also effectual in eradicating stretch marks. This can also be used to treat acne. The working process of Renova is quite simple; it works by binding to specific cell receptors of skin after a topical application. After the cell receptors have been activated, there is a modification in gene expression, subsequent protein synthesis, and cell growth and differentiation. Thus, the epidermal cell is modified to produce a greater amount of new skin. In clinical studies there is an enhanced production of collagen in areas of treated skin.
Aldara is used to treat cnditions including external
genital or anal warts. Because imiquimod does not kill the virus
that causes genital or anal warts, new warts may appear during or
after treatment. This drug is also effective at treating other skin
conditions such as actinic keratosis and superficial basal cell
cancers. Generic imiquimod skin cream is not yet available.
