Why Are Skin Conditions So Common?
Your personal lifestyle is what makes the difference. Do you work or play in a high humidity environment? Do you spend time with family or friends? Do you stay out in the sun too long? Do you over-apply and/or under-apply skin care products?
Or do you simply choose to live in the sun to begin with? Most importantly, are you living an active lifestyle?
Your skin is the first line of defense. It is designed for the protection it gets from you and your environment. Your skin needs proper moisturization to function properly, so it can work as a barrier (as opposed to an open wound) so that all of that moisture can be absorbed. All the products you use need to be safe – they must be not irritating or harmful
to your skin. Skin types vary wildly. Everyone is different. Your skin does not react to one type of product. So long as you have the correct skin care regimen, you should be able to easily manage most skin conditions.
