What you should know about your skin type

Your skin serves as an excellent barometer of body and spirit. Sickness, sadness, worry all are reflected in a poor complexion, but when you're healthy, satisfied personally, and have a lust for life, your face shows it. When people tell you, you look great! It's a tribute to your lustrous, lively complexion. To have great skin, be happy. Sound too simple? It isn't your state of mind that has an enormous influence on the condition of your skin. A positive mindset promotes the healthy functioning of nerves and hormones, which ensures excellent circulation and the production of natural chemicals for all parts of the body, including the skin. Achieving a positive frame of mind requires reducing stress, getting enough sleep, and balancing your nutritional and exercise habits. When was the last time you took good care of your skin? Ever go to bed with your makeup still on, or without washing your face? Ever stay up all night, or oversleep? Do you smoke, or tend to have one drink too many at the bar? Do you spend a lot of time in rooms loaded with stale air? Expose yourself to sudden chill or heat? Neglect to wash your skin after a workout? It's hard living in today's fast-paced society without having your skin take a beating. Try to drop skin enemies whenever possible and to train your skin to be strong enough to withstand foes like extreme temperature and stale, smoky air, without obstructing the natural breathing of the skin. Let's get down to basics. 

The skin is the body's largest organ. We tend to take it for granted, we scrape it, stretch it, expose it to the elements, and still expect it to hold up without much help. How important is skin? Let's look at the six primary functions it performs. The first skin is a window on the emotions. People are considered mysterious and poker-faced, but given the correct situation, they are as capable of expressing emotions as anyone else. Feelings are represented by a rush of blood to the face, when flustered or embarrassed, away from the front, when angry or afraid and by contractions of the facial skin. Women often try to hold back a smile or other expressions, in the belief that this will stave off the wrinkling process. This isn't very intelligent and may even give your face a mask-like appearance. Natural expressiveness is an essential human trait, one that distinguishes our personalities. Instead of surrendering smiling, a more sensible approach is disciplining yourself to a good skin-maintenance routine. So, it would help if you tried to avoid habitual frowning, pursing of the lips, or any other nervous tics that can etch deep lines in your face over time. 

Second, skin wraps the entire body and internal organs, providing a shield against various irritations. This natural armor takes a considerable amount of punishment. It's the thing between you and bacteria, ultraviolet rays, chemicals, vast temperature fluctuations, poisonous substances, and sudden blows to the body. Cosmetics, if used, act as a kind of skin on the surface. The skin does 80 percent of the job of regulating body temperature. In cold environments, the blood vessels and pores constrict to conserve heat. Subcutaneous fat, a layer of fat beneath the surface of the skin, also keeps the body warm. When it's hot, the blood vessels expand to induce sweating and help the body shed heat. Sweat glands are concentrated in the palms, soles of the feet, and forehead. Too to sweat, a minute amount of moisture, insensible perspiration is being released both from the surface of the skin and by exhaled water vapor. The water lost via insensible perspiration can amount to as much as 700 milliliters a day. Next, the skin can absorb certain kinds of substances, so understanding its role in absorbing nutrients and excreting wastes is critical to the correct application of cosmetics. Excretion is performed by two types of glands: pores, which expel oil, and sweat glands, which emit the perspiration. The pores are capable of absorbing substances, but those that are liposoluble or non-water soluble.

That is, dissolvable in fat solvents and alcohol, note that rubbing lemon juice on the skin or applying other water-soluble substances is a waste of time if deep-down skin health is your goal. These liquids cannot be absorbed and work on the surface of the skin. When you're around 22 or 23, your skin has already hit middle age in the prime of your youth. Until then, your skin is preserved by a film of oil and sweat. After washing with soap, the skin produces a new filmy layer, a kind of natural skin cream. After your early 20s, your skin can't manufacture enough moisture by itself. It has to be assisted by lotions and creams with a surface-active agent or emulsifier, which supports your skin with the absorption process. To avoid an allergic reaction or irritation, care is required in choosing skin preparations. If your skin is already in good shape, not too dry, not too oily, you must be careful not to pile on heavy creams that disturb your skin's natural balance. Try to add what is needed, leaving all the unnecessary extras where they belong in the jar. Your goal should be to help your skin maintain its peak condition and not make it dependent on synthetic helpers. Caring for your skin resembles tending to a pair of your favorite leather shoes. With proper maintenance, they will get better with age but expose them to the elements, neglect to clean them, forget to buff them once in a while, and soon that lovely, smooth pair of shoes will look like bargain-basement junk. Spare your face from a similar fate. 

Third, the skin is a transmitter of sensations, and it transmits a plethora of outside stimuli, anything from heat and cold, to pain and itching, to the central nervous system. The softness of a cashmere sweater and the coolness of silk against your body are all conveyed via the skin. Skin also breathes, cutaneous respiration when your skin breathes, resembles pulmonary respiration. What most of us think of as breathing occurs when the lungs take in oxygen and expire carbon dioxide. Your capillaries take in oxygen, but expel carbon dioxide is a far more significant proportion. This process is unique to human beings. The skin has a natural ability to guard itself against disease, recover from abrasions, produce new cells, and clears pimples and blemishes. Try to avoid interfering with the skin's natural ability to cure itself, and assist it when necessary. There's no way to stop the natural biological process, but there are ways to keep your skin looking healthy and younger. To begin with, define the signs of flawless skin. First, we have supple, firm, glossy and lustrous, with oil and water content in perfect balance. Also free of blemishes and strong enough to withstand common conditions and healthy colored. 

What's your skin type?

Knowing your skin type means being able to avoid the pain and hassle of wasted money and skin irritation. You can complete a quick diagnosis yourself. Those with sensitive complexions should have a more thorough analysis done by a dermatologist using a tissue sample and should test cosmetics on a small patch of skin first. Check the pores' size and the amount of oil on your face by holding a magnifying glass over. First, the center of the forehead, the best place to determine how fine-grained, dry, or oily your skin is. Next, the nostrils, the condition of the leather here, will show whether you are washing your skin. If not, this area will exhibit signs of trouble, such as blackheads. Also, the outer corners of the eyes, these tend to be quite dry, and also show early results of wear and tear, such as wrinkles or sags. The state of your skin here reveals whether you tend to wrinkle. Under the eyes, the capillary vessels are concentrated in this area, and some people with allergies or users of steroids have red or puffy skin. Also, the centers of the cheeks, this is an excellent place to examine skin tissue to see if the pores are enlarged or blocked with dirt and oil. Check the chin and check the hollow under your lower lip to see how much oil your skin is secreting. There are five basic skin types: dry, combination, sensitive, oily, and mature. To figure out what kind you have, check each of the areas mentioned in the previous paragraph in this article, and then consult the skin types in part below.

Dry skin

Delicate and susceptible to flaking and fine lines, dry skin does not keep moisture well. It can produce uncomfortable symptoms, such as itchiness or tautness after washing. In rare cases, it leads to eczema, psoriasis, cracks, fissures, and infection. Dry skin is often a feature of genetics, but as we age, it is more common, as the skin produces less oil.

Combination skin

When a complexion is oily in some places and regular dry in others, it is known as combination skin. Those of us with combined skin may experience blemishes and breakouts while patches of dry, flaky skin. This skin type benefits from a combination approach to skincare, using one kind of product and application technique on oily areas of the face, and another on drier sites. You may find that combination skin rebalances itself with simple adjustments to your routine.

Sensitive skin

Usually dry and prone to flaking, itching, and redness, sensitive skin is also susceptible to allergic reactions and broken capillaries. Anyone of any age or gender can have sensitive skin, but genetics and cultural inheritance play a part. For instance, many skin conditions linked to exposed skin such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, tend to run in families, and those of Asian descent are sensitive to detergents.

Oily skin

Oily skin is often a matter of genetics or hormonal changes. The body produces hormones that lead to oily skin in adolescence and menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. These changes trigger the body to produce more oil, which combines with dead skin cells to clog pores, but also moisturizes and makes you less prone to wrinkles.

Mature skin

It is easy to fall into the trap of believing that the goal of mature skincare is to make you look younger. Exaggerated promises, such as look ten years younger overnight or reduce all signs of an aging sound pipe dream because they are looking healthy and can be expected for your age is a much more sensible and achievable goal.
