Skincare Sunday: Seven Sins For Your Skin

Here is my video overview of the Seven Sins for Your Skin:

Seven Sins to Your Skin:

  1. The Sun–UV Rays can cause aging and sun exposure can cause dry skin as well as cause cell renewal to slow which in turn causes fine lines, wrinkles, and an uneven tone. This is one reason daily SPF is important.
  2. Smoking–This can cause your skin to look dull and your collagen and elasticity to weaken which speeds up the aging process.
  3. Stress and Lack of Sleep–Your skin can become dry, break out, become more sensitive, have excess oil, or a lackluster appearance when these factors come into play. Have you heard of “beauty sleep”? This is true and when you sleep your skin renews itself.
  4. Pollution–Your pores can become clogged when your skin comes into contact with grime in the air.
  5. Facial Expressions–“laugh lines”, “frown lines”, etc. When you make certain facial expressions your skin creates creases and eventually these creases will become wrinkles. I’m 26 and as I mentioned in the video I’m already seeing these creases on my forehead and have been seeing them for quite some time (at least 4 years).  I’m not saying don’t express yourself just remember eventually those expressions will lead to wrinkles. I guess it’s not the worst way to age.
  6. Poor Diet–An unhealthy diet is not good for many reasons, but eating empty calories can also cause the appearance of your skin to change in a negative way. Just another reason to try to maintain a healthy diet.
  7. Sleep Positions–Sleeping certain ways can increase wrinkles. Sleeping on your side may cause lines on your chin and cheek and sleeping face down can create lines on your forehead. Sleeping on your back is the best way to prevent these lines from occurring.

Skincare Sunday: How to determine your Skin Type

The video below explains how you can determine skin type:

Is  your skin oily, normal, dry, or combination? How do you know? In the video above I explain how you can easily determine your skin type.

Why is it important to know skin type?

When determining which skincare products are best for you, it is important to know your skin type so that you can find products that will suit your skin. For example, combination and oily skin do better with lighter lotions instead of heavy creams. Normal skin can usually do either creams or lotions. Dry skin usually does better with creams.

Tissue Test to determine skin type:

  1. Wash your face and pat dry.
  2. Wait 15 minutes.
  3. Rip a tissue into 4 pieces. Put one piece on the forehead, one on the cheek, one on the side of your nose, and one on your chin.
  4. Observe what happens. See what the results mean below.

What does the tissue test mean?

  • Dry skin–All of the pieces of tissue fell off
  • Normal skin–All of the pieces stuck and then fell off
  • Oily skin–All of the pieces stick to your skin
  • Combination skin–The nose and chin pieces stuck and the cheeks and forehead came off.

Other signs:

  • Dry skin can be flaky and irritated
  • Normal skin is usually clear and even
  • Oily skin is greasy and shines and is also prone to blemishes and blackheads
  • Combination skin is oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry on the cheeks
