Oily & Dry Skin Treatments
We are made up of the largest organ of our body, the skin. Besides protecting us from the outside world, it is our outer covering and is responsible for many functions. Although it functions as a layer, it goes beyond just that. The appearance of our skin speaks volumes about our health and can be a reflection of our ageing.
In order to improve one's skin, one must conduct an analysis of it. Several skin types exist, but the correct treatment/care can be tailored for each of them depending on their skin type. Our specialists in skin analysis can help you determine what your skin type is, and how to treat it. They can also determine if there is a medical condition that may be causing problems with the skin. For example, redness of the cheeks may be caused by medical conditions such as Lupus, certain medications or rosacea.
Secondly, it is important to determine the history of the skin. An individual's current skin care regimen should be evaluated to see if it is causing problems with their skin. In Australia, a person's sun exposure history and whether or not they use sunscreen regularly need to be assessed. No matter how much exposure to the sun you receive, we recommend wearing sunscreen every day.
Thirdly, determine your skin type, because different types of skin require different treatments. Based on your skin type and any present problems, the best course of action will be determined.
There are two types of skin. Dry skin refers to when your skin automatically becomes dry and needs to be moisturised often. In addition, oily skin means that your skin produces excessive amounts of oil.
Only chronic dehydration will result in this type of skin, but genetics is the primary cause. In addition to blackheads, acne, and oil-secreting pores, your skin may also have fine lines and wrinkles.
Initially, it is crucial to determine the oiliness or dryness of the skin. Your skin's feeling can be determined by how it feels after washing. Some drier skin types may feel tight or flaky after washing, whereas some oilier skin types may still feel shiny and oily after washing. Skin that is oily may show signs such as enlarged pores, acne, blackheads, and shine. Skin that is dry will display flakiness, tightness, and cracks.
Skin that is oily is more prone to enlarged pores and acne, whereas skin that is dry will have a finer, porcelain-like appearance, but is more likely to produce wrinkles. Many people who experience oily skin around the T-zone (nose, chin, and in between brows) often find that their cheeks seem drier. The skin here is called combination, when this is the case it is recommended not to use moisturiser in these areas and to use it only on the cheeks.
