Signs of Unhealthy Skin

Your skin is several layers deep. Meaning that the causes for unhealthy skin often come from within. It has to do with not only how you care for your skin but what you eat, how much you drink and your sleeping habits. To say the least your skin is sensitive to these elements of your daily life. Let’s get down to what the signs and symptoms are of unhealthy skin.

Uneven complexion: This is noted by having an uneven tone to your skin. This can include dark circles under your eyes, blotchiness, and blemishes.

Dehydrated skin: This is most noted by your skin feeling tight. You will also see dry, flaky patches and can
 experience itching. To remedy this you will want to ensure you are drinking the recommended amount of water for your body weight. An equation you can use is: Your body weight divided by 2 = the amount of fluid ounces of water you should drink on a daily basis. You will also want to moisturize. Ask a licensed Esthetician about the different types of moisturizers on the market and which can benefit you the most.

Texture of the skin: Healthy skin should be smooth to the touch and void of acne, (white/blackheads) and millia (hard tiny bumps under the skin). If you experience these skin complications it is time to adjust your skin care regimen.

Note: Harsh chemical cleansers and exfoliants will act as a catalyst for your unhealthy skin. They often remove all oils from the skin leaving it dry and tight. In many cases you can experience redness and a burning sensation.

The best way to care for your skin is to ask an Esthetician what to do. Not all products are created equal! Unhealthy skin takes time and dedication to correct. Work together with your Esthetician to achieve the results you desire. #CynthiaSterrettSkinCare Helping You Put Your Best Face Forward.
