Mature Skin/Aging Skin
The skin appears more loose and thin, elastic fibers degenerate due to water loss while fat tissue reduces in thickness, causing ageing and a breakdown in the skin’s elasticity. There is a dramatic reduction in oil production, thus causing dryness.
A person who has normal skin generally experiences a facial complexion that is clear in appearance with none to very little blemishes. The skin’s pores are often small to medium size. The elasticity of the skin is tight and smooth to the touch while the skin tone is even in appearance.
Skin that appears shiny and oily to the touch can be categorized as oily skin. This excess of oil production often causes the skin to have more blemishes like the common pimple, blackhead and white head.
The skin often feels very tight, and may even experience some peeling or visible patches of dry, flaking skin. The skins tone is often matte in appearance and if not properly cared for will become drier and more wrinkled in complexion as you age. Your pores tend to be small so your blemishes also tend to be smaller and more infrequent. Dry skin is often associated with seasonal changes but in most cases it is linked to the dehydration of the skin and the body’s production of oil.
Sensitive skin can be easily irritated. Typical reactions are itching, burning, chafing and stinging. After cleansing it can feel dry and/or a little irritated. By midday there are flaky patches and some redness. Occasionally break out in spots.
The majority of people with combination skin tend to experience a T-zone area that is oilier than other areas of their face and body. This T-zone focuses on the forehead, the nose and the chin and because of the higher levels of oil production in these areas; this is where most of the breakouts occur.
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disease that causes facial redness. Some of the early indicators of rosacea are consistent blushing or flushing of the face, ears, neck, and chest. The most common symptoms of rosacea are chronic facial redness, burning, itching, edema (swelling), bumps and pimples, and telangiectasia (spider veins).
