Skin serves as a protective mantle for our body and is the largest organ a human being has. Every day our skin is exposed to pollution, dust, chemical agents, solar radiation, stress, alcohol consumption, poor diet, etc., and all of this can harm it. For this reason, skin care is a fundamental factor as it always helps the skin in staying healthy and protected.
Skincare is a matter of health, and no matter the age, sex, and type of skin, it should always be well taken care of. The lack of precautions and daily care can contribute to premature aging, the appearance of spots, diseases, and problems that, in the long or short term, can cause damage to your health.
Some skin problems directly affect and interfere with people's well-being and self-esteem. Because they leave scars or stains due to acne, melasma, vitiligo, and psoriasis, among others, they make it difficult for people to look at themselves in the mirror and notice this type of situation. This is why it is necessary and important to visit a medical specialist to indicate treatments with specific and adequate products.
Creating a habit of maintaining a regular skincare routine is essential for a healthy skin. Cleaning the skin, for example, is the initial and most precious step of this routine. Cleaning the skin is mandatory because it removes makeup, oil residue, dead cells, pollution, and dirt that accumulate throughout the day.
Another very important step is moisturizing; it is an indispensable part of the routine. Hydration can be adequate and adjusted for different skin types such as dry, oily, combination, etc, but no type can be without it because hydration acts in the replacement of water and this is part of its priorities. Following care, the use of sunscreen is more than necessary. It can prevent problems caused by exposure to the sun without protection, such as skin cancer, premature aging, sunburn, spots, and stains.
People must protect themselves from exposure to the sun, regardless of their skin type and colour. UV radiation (ultraviolet radiation) has a cumulative effect, i.e., the sun you are exposed to since childhood is accumulated until today, adding up with the sun of adolescence and adulthood. The dangerous and feared sun rays cause several changes, such as the appearance of spots, wrinkles, spots, worst of all, skin cancer. For this reason, we should always use sunscreen even on cold and rainy days, because the UV rays go beyond the clouds.
But nowadays, many brands are launching skin products that often are not tested or approved dermatologically. Even more with the internet, and social networks in which influencers launch all the time a new miracle product, a magical product for the skin, and as they have very high visibility, they end up deceiving many people. That is why it is always good to remember to consult a dermatologist before starting any skincare routine or any treatment. They will always indicate the most appropriate products for your skin type.
