BLEMISHED SKIN - WHAT TO DO!
Those who suffer from acne, pimples or blemished skin have usually tried a lot to counteract this problem. We can reassure you, there are many people who suffer from skin irritations.
It is mostly considered an aesthetic problem, but it mostly affects the overall well-being. These blemishes often affect the mind, self-esteem and physical conditions. Healthy skin can fulfill many vital functions, which are explained below.
What can cause skin irritations and blemished skin?
Impure skin occurs when the glands produce excessive sebum and the sebum cannot escape through the sebum follicle canal. This can cause inflamation and lead to painful pimples.Acne is a hormone-related disorder in which too many androgens such as testosterone are produced by the body. In contrast, female hormones tend to counteract skin impurities.
In general, it can be said that certain external influences such as stress, nutrition and the climate can affect the skin. Hormonal changes can also have a negative effect on the skin.
The skin is an organ that is very strongly exposed to these environmental influences. It is also our largest sense organ and has several vital functions.
The most important functions of your skin:
- Protective function: It protects against external influences.
- Acid protective mantle: It fends off many pathogens.
- Sensory organ: This enables us to experience feelings such as pain, pressure and temperature.
- Temperature regulation: The skin regulates the temperature of the body.
- Water balance: It protects the body from dehydration and releases sweat and salts.
Furthermore, the skin is often referred to as the "mirror of the soul", the reason being that the emotional condition and emotional state of being is also visible on the skin.
It is therefore important to take a look at these causes too!
A QUESTION OF THE SKIN TYPE
It is important to take good care of the skin, and the choice of product plays an essential role. Many cosmetics contain petroleum oils and lipids, which close the pores and thus prevent skin breathing. Many products are too caustic and thus destroy the important protective layer of the skin.
What´s my skin type?
The skin type plays an important role in choosing the right product.
Basically there are 4 skin types:
Do you have skin that is not too greasy but does not dry out quickly?
Do you have skin that greases very easily and shines quickly? Then you are probably of the oily skin type. Oils and greasy creams are not recommended here.
Your skin gets dry quickly? Do you feel that you are often tense or do you easily get irritated? Then you suffer from dry skin.
Do you have lightly greased skin in the so-called T-zone, but the rest of your facial skin is rather dry? Then they belong to the combination skin type
