How Our Environment Affects Our Skin

 

WebMd is a website that states the reason for wrinkles in a very creative way: “Like snowflakes, no two faces are identical.”

This is completely and utterly true. We are all different from one another. We feel differently, see things differently, and build up our own independent memories over time. And, unfortunately, we all age differently, and will continue to – until those doctors find some magic lotion that will literally stop aging and let us look stunning forever, like those handsome vampires we keep seeing. When it comes to growing older, the effects on the skin are astronomically different for each person.

It’s not only because of DNA. The environment plays a large part on how our skin reacts over time. Such as, living in the cold winters of Maine as opposed to living in the dry, hot winds of New Mexico will cause the skin to age in very different ways. Not to mention our interior 2lifestyle. A person who is outdoors-y will constantly be effected by Mother Nature, whereas an indoor person who likes to sit and read on the sofa – watching the blizzards from inside their warm, cozy house instead of actually hiking through them – will have different skin when it comes to wrinkles and aging. So what, exactly, is the best way to preserve the skin?

A salon called FaceLuXe that is popping up all over the United States wants people to have knowledge regarding their skin. These are salons that give ‘5-star’ treatment to their clients in the most relaxing atmosphere you can think of; and their products and services are second to none. Even when you first walk through the FaceLuXe doors, you meet up with the experience and commitment that the staff has. They not only want to offer you the correct services that will keep you happy and coming back, but they also want to make sure that the service you receive is what’s absolutely best for your skin.

Taking that into account – in order to increase your knowledge of what that protective covering on your body really is – it’s best to learn your actual skin type in order to choose the best skin regimen. FaceLuXe wants all clients to look young, rejuvenated and increase their overall health and well-being, and knowledge is the first way to do just that.

Dermatologists categorize skin: Type I is the lightest and Type VI is the darkest. When it comes to people who fall into the higher types, they are the ones who have more melanin in their skin which protects them from the sun in far better ways than a truly light-skinned person. They often look years younger than the Type I’s. However, there are downsides to this as well. Having more of that melanin causes a much higher risk of scarring and pigmentation problems to the skin. See? Nothing’s perfect…unless you’re a vampire of course.

When it comes to our age, the term: “You’re only as young as you feel,” is a nice way to look at things. But even if you feel young, vibrant and energetic, the skin is one of those things that can’t be hidden. With aging, everything slows down, including the production of collagen and elastin – which brings about fine lines and wrinkles. Add in your sun exposure, Mother Nature and gravity, and the skin begins to sag.

It’s true that as time moves on the skin changes, along with the rest of life. The skin becomes thin, dry and basically more fragile than it was in youth. The fat that most people yell about during their whole life is suddenly needed, because when it begins to disappear, the skin in cheeks, chin and nose begins to sag.

With oily skin, as age comes on, acne breakouts can become even worse. However, that oily skin does halt wrinkles in their tracks because the oils keep skin moist and smooth. For dry skin, a moisturizer is necessary. Antioxidants are also good at protecting the skin and will always improve skin’s appearance. They can be found in all-natural substances, or from vitamin supplements of C, E, and A, which should already be a regular part of a healthy diet.

It’s also good to keep in the back of your mind that with age, those days of sitting out in the sun in order to get that perfect tan turn from good memories into bad, because sun damage from the past catches up with you eventually, causing age spots and wrinkles. Doctors have stated that sun exposure is the number one cause of harm to the skin, and no type of skin is immune.

Wearing sunscreen, using moisturizer and following a skin regimen each and every day are absolute musts. When it comes to FaceLuXe, adding their incredible services to that regimen will rejuvenate and renew your skin, helping to erase that sun-bathing past. The products that are found on their website are also amazing.

So, what to do now? Head to www.FaceLuXe.com today and begin to restore that glowing, healthy skin!
