Not all skin problems are visible to the naked eye. How can you tell if you have healthy skin?
Most of the time, we go through our skin care routines without giving much thought on them. Unless there’s an errant pimple or a patch of dry skin, there’s never a reason to worry. After all, if it’s not broken, why fix it? But because not all skin problems are easily visible, your skin may not be as healthy as you think it is.
Remember healthy skin is more than just aesthetics— it reflects your overall well-being. Here are the four signs of healthy skin:
When you analyze healthy skin up close, it looks “regularly irregular”. This means skin has tiny peaks around pores and hair follicles, and tiny valley between the peaks; it is not completely smooth like glass.
On the other hand, unhealthy skin does not have a uniform texture. Texture-related skin concerns include acne, blackheads and whiteheads, wrinkles, bumps, and scars.
The consistency of skin color is a sign of healthy, youthful skin. More than having a certain skin color, even skin tone is actually considered more attractive.
Unfortunately, accumulated sun damage can take its toll on skin as we age and signs of unevenness become apparent. Examples of uneven skin tone include dark under eye circles, blotchiness, and spots that are dark, light or red.
Sun spots are a chronic condition and considered to affect areas of the skin beyond the visible spots. They are not freckles or moles, but different marks entirely. A person may have a visible sun spot, but because the sun can cause damage to a large area of skin, more sun spots can appear over time.
Skin is healthy when it is properly hydrated. While drinking water is essential for good health, it does not directly benefit the skin that much. What’s more important is choosing a good moisturizer—one that isn’t heavy and is enriched with hydrating ingredients such as Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer.
When skin is dehydrated, it appears visibly dry and creates problems like scaly or flaking skin.
Skin is healthy when it doesn’t feel any uncomfortable or unusual sensations. For example, have you noticed your skin feeling dry and tight after washing it? The dry and tight sensations are considered unusual sensations. Which means your skin is reacting to a harsh cleansing product.
If you are experiencing some of these signs, consult your dermatologist. Your derma can help you determine possible causes of your problems and help you create an effective skincare routine.
