Taking Care of Your Skin - Part 2

Last time we discussed four basic types of skin: normal, dry, oily, combination. Today, we are going to focus on problems related to our skin and how to take care of them.

Sensitive and allergic skin.

That type of skin does not tolerate any changes in environmental conditions - cold, hot, sudden jumps in temperature, polluted air, cigarette smoke. The oversensitive skin might also be the reaction to the aggressive use of peeling and laser treatments. Therefore, we need to be careful and not to overdo it (2 to 3 times a month is enough).

When your skin becomes sensitive, you feel it right away. You feel discomfort after washing or removing makeup, your skin becomes red and itches you or gives you a burning sensation.

Dilated capillaries.

Skin with dilated capillaries also becomes red, especially on the chicks, chin, and nose but also on the neck, and décolleté. That skin reacts poorly to environmental changes and to detergents used in cleaning agents. Red blush is an effect of dilated capillaries, small vessels beneath the surface of the skin. Capillary skin is usually either dry type or combination type.


Dehydration can happen to any skin, regardless of age or weather conditions, or the season. It leads to a lost elasticity of the skin, showing of wrinkles and in effect, rapid aging of the skin. Your skin feels tight and becomes red, especially when you expose it to too much sun, or too much cold, or air-conditioned rooms. AC and radiators dry out the air and cause dehydration of the skin. Dehydrated skin will produce too much sebum if the skin is an oily type or will become overdried if dry skin type.


Typically acne is present on the oily but sensitive skin which has a bacterial infection. It creates clogged pores, blackheads, zits on the face, back neck, and shoulders. Because Acne is a bacterial infection, that condition requires both, dermatological attention and proper cosmetological care.
