The state of your skin depends on a number of factors.
Some common mistakes
The use of products that address the type of skin, but not the present condition which will vary with each individual and change with:
- Medical History
- Stress Level
The ‘over stimulation’ of skin, by over-washing with hot water, harsh soaps, rough wash cloths and buff puffs.
- For “normal” or sensitive skin, these items can redden skin and cause dilated ‘broken’ capillaries.
- For oily skin, this can over-stimulate the sebaceous oil glands and actually cause MORE oil production and breakouts.
- For dry, photo-damaged skin, over stimulation can dry out the skin even further.
The use of harsh topical formulations that can create sensitivity and thin the skin.
The use of aggressive treatment protocols when a gentler approach would suffice.
