Discover the outstanding personality of Asian skin
Just like body shape, eye color or hair color, Asian skin presents completely different features from other places in the world. What is the skin of Asia ? What are the pros and the cons of Asian skin? What about its natural features ? Let’s find out !
- Sebum excess
Asia is an area with a hot, humid, tropical or subtropical climate, high humidity in the air stimulates the oil glands to function vigorously, producing excess oil, which makes Asian skin always glossier than residents of other continents in the world.
Oily skin can cause pores to expand, enabling acne to develop. Therefore, you should not use strong cleansing products, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) shampoo, cleanser, or skin cleanser if you do not want your skin to "work hard " and create more sebum to balance. Choose body care products and skin that contains natural cleansing ingredients made from coconut trees such as decyl glucoside, or natural ingredients that fight acne like essential oils and lavender distilled water (lavender), tea trea, witch hazel, burdock ..
- It is prone to hyperpigmentation and melasma:
All skins contain an amount of pigment cells to produce the same pigmentation, but the amount of melanin - a natural pigment that helps protect the skin from the sun's UV rays - that the pigment cells reproduce is different and depends on the individual. People with darker skin produce more melanin than light-skinned people.
Genetics researchers have proved that Asians have many layers of melanin. This makes them face the risk of pigmentation disorders such as hyperpigmentation leading to melasma, freckles and age spots.
Therefore, Asian skin needs special priority use of sunscreens and natural whitening ingredients like vitamin C, while avoiding products that contain a lot of cleansing chemicals.
In addition, one should limit the use of deep intervention therapies such as skin peeling, pigmentation, etc. because Asian skin is particularly sensitive. Even these therapies can be counterproductive under the tropics blazing all year-round sun!
The outermost layer of Asian skin is much thinner than other skin type, so our skin is extremely sensitive. Factors such as temperature, weather and chemicals easily irritate and break the balance and stability of the skin.
So stay away from harsh treatments like skin peeling or the use of chemical acid solutions. Immediately remove cosmetics containing cleaning agents, colorings, odorants and chemical preservatives, and other pH-based cleansers 5.5. Feel free to relax with natural products from benign ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile (chamomile), etc.
- Easily dehydrated:
According to dermatological studies, Asia is the region with the highest amount of moisture lost through the skin (in the absence of perspiration) in the world. When the skin lacks necessary moisture, it will become dry and cracked.
To ensure a moisturized skin, choose moisturizers that contain many water retention components such as hyaluronic acid (gel-like molecule that acts as a buffer and fill gaps between cells), or types of Natural vegetable oils such as coconut oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, etc.
- Easily scarred:
The outer epidermis of the skin acts as a barrier to protect the underlying tissue. This layer is very thin in Asian skin, hence, poor hygiene and bad environmental conditions make the skin vulnerable, scarred after acne or other injuries
Therefore, it is very important to take care of your skin carefully when acne is present. Pay attention not to touch, poke them. Instead, use natural products that have a gentle healing effect that is as effective as oil (emu) or vitamin E, etc.
- slow aging:
Fortunately, in spite of these disadvantages, Asian skin has a great advantage: slow aging! Indeed, a 2005 study compared the skin of French and Chinese women, showing that wrinkles appear on Asian skin more than 10 years later than in Europe. The reason is that Asians have thicker dermis layer, their skin contains more quality collagen plus our very early conscious skin care skills as well as healthy eating habits.
Just by choosing wisely high quality, safe, benign and effective cosmetics, our skin will be fresh and surprisingly youthful. Ingredients such as South African pink tea (rooibos), blueberry (cranberry), ginseng, vitamin E ... are the medicinal herbs in the anti-aging revolution for women.
"Best shape and better skin" - owning fresh, healthy skin is a great advantage to highlight the beauty and spirit of women. A better understanding of the characteristics of my skin is the basis for choosing the right skin care products, bringing about effective results. Instead of following labels, remember that cosmetics need to improve, nourish and honor the beauty of each skin.
