Common Skin Concerns and Solutions

Everyone has good and bad days when it comes to their skin. Yes, everyone. Including those who seemingly have poreless, airbrushed facade. Ultimately, we all have our own battles to face (e.g. Annoying Skin Concerns) but the good thing is that there's a solution for everything. There's got to be, right? 

So, which issues bug you the most when it comes to your skin? How can you remedy them to reveal a healthier glow? 

 

Acne and Blemishes 

It commonly starts in puberty. They say that the moment you see those unfamiliar red bumps on your face, you enter a new world. People around you would also say, "Don't worry, it'll go away as you grow older." And now you're actually older, but those infuriating bumps and spots still refuse to go away. In fact, they've only increased in number. It's always a frustrating time when you look at others with incredibly glassy skin. 

Blackheads, whiteheads, red bumps, pustules, nodules, cysts, and scarring--pesky things you don't ever want to see on your skin, are all manifestations of acne, ranging from the mildest to the most severe. To get rid of these issues and unveil a clearer skin, you need to do the drill: drink LOTS of water, follow a healthy meal plan, exercise, wash your face regularly, avoid popping the zits (no matter how tempting). Best of all, you need to find the perfect product that gives you a lasting solution, instead of just a momentary one.  

A principle to live by is that clean skin begins with clean products. Harsh, synthetic ingredients in conventional skincare create an alkaline environment, disrupting the delicate pH balance of healthy skin, and leading to breakouts. The perfect fit for oily, sensitive and breakout-prone skin are natural and organic anti-acne products

 

Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Loose Skin

As people age, their bodies also become more incapable of producing the right amount of collagen to replenish what has been lost, so the skin begins to lose its strength and elasticity over time. This naturally results to fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. 

However, just because you haven't reached the age of 40 yet doesn't mean this shouldn't be a concern. If you are always exposed to the sun and free radicals through pollution or smoke, your skin is also more likely to lose its elasticity.

To keep your youthful glow for longer, you should always be armed with SPF before heading outdoors. Moisturizing is also a non-negotiable step. At night, slather on a moisturizer with revitalizing properties.

 

Dry Skin 

The general cause of dry skin seems like a no-brainer: It's a lack of moisture. This can happen as a result of frequent bathing, use of harsh soaps, aging, colder climates or certain medical conditions. Natural and organic moisturizers are best for your skin's healthy glow. Stock up on serums and creams that contain natural, active ingredients like argan oil. You should also use gentle, unscented bathing products that will help your skin retain its natural oils. Some skin care products are just way too harsh for dry, sensitive skin.  

 

Dark Circles

 

Ever bumped into anyone when you weren't wearing under-eye concealer, and that person goes, "Didn't sleep well last night?" That's actually quite presumptuous considering that there's a range of other triggers for under-eye discoloration aside from just lack of sleep. Allergies, anemia, aging skin, medications, hormonal changes, sun damage, genetics are also probable causes for dark circles under the eyes. Yes, a full night of shut-eye can help dimish those circles a bit but to get rid of them for good, first consider their source. 

If you think that your dark circles are caused by vascular problems, consider using eye creams with anti-inflammatory properties. For allergy-induced circles, consider taking an over-the-counter antihistamine before allergies begin to cause under-eye shadows. And if thin skin is the issue, use a collagen-building night cream.
