It’s easy to tell when a friend or family member is in need. Most of the time they will communicate their problems with you. What about the most important of your allies, your skin? Just like us, our skin gets irritated, dehydrated, and tired. How can you tell?
Here are a few red flags to look out for when it comes to your skin:
Rashes and Blotches
Rashes can be caused by a number of things, one of them being an allergic reaction to a cosmetic product. According to WebMD, 25% of people said they have had an allergic reaction to a beauty product. (1) Skin care formulas can contain inactive ingredients that contribute to the products overall look and feel. However, it’s usually those same ingredients that can lead to irritating blotches and rashes. If you are experiencing a bad reaction to a product, consult with your dermatologist and then try switching to a product that uses all natural and organic ingredients.
The face, neck, and chest are prone to discoloration because they experience the most exposure to the sun, which causes sunspots and discolored skin. Be careful because some drug store creams will only make discoloration worse. The same goes for exfoliation- the more you exfoliate the more you open up your problem areas to deeper sun damage. Find a moisturizer that utilizes peptides, such as DHP that reverse the signs of aging caused by UV rays. (2)
Under Eye Bags and Puffiness
Do you always wake up with puffy, heavy bags under your eyes? Well it could be your diet, a diet rich in sodium, potassium, and caffeine can promote water retention throughout your body. (3) If these diet choices have been part of your lifestyle over the years, don’t worry, ingredients like C2PO smooth out the skin’s natural barriers and repair age related skin damage. (4)
Dry Skin & Lips
Dry skin and flaky lips are a major sign of dehydration. (5) Dry skin is also common with scrubs, peels, microdermabrasion, and retinoids. The right facial cleanser will have your face feeling soft and smooth right after you use it, not dry or irritated. Don’t forget to cleanse and moisturize every day, twice a day!
A sure fire way to tell if you are over treating your skin is if you are experiencing more and more breakouts. If you are constantly applying face peels and acid-based creams this could be the reason why your face is responding in breakouts. Peeling agents accelerate the rate of cell turnover, which aggravate the face, in turn creating your dreaded acne. (6)
