Caring For Your Skin
The way your skin responds to ageing is due, inpart, to your genetic make—up. But how you treat your skin has a huge impact on the visible signs. Exposure to sunlight, environmental elements such as air pollution and toxins in your food, and your lifestyle (lack of sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol) all contribute to the visible signs of ageing developing well before their time. So, it's good to know that if you control these factors, you can make a material difference to your skin.

What Causes Problem Skins?
Problem skin goes hand in hand with the teenage years, thanks to the body's fluctuating hormone levels. Unfortunately, pimples are no longer the preserve of teens. Men and women of all ages find themselves with spots cohabiting unhappily with lines and wrinkles, Luckily, there is much you can do, whatever your age, to combat this problem.
Besides a genetic predisposition to skin problems and hormonal fluctuations, stress plays a serious role. This modern malady has as much of an effect on your skin as it has on the rest of your body. Researchers have found a correlation between mental state and skin health. Under stressful conditions, the body releases hormones adrenalin, cortisol and DHEA to help us channel energy and oxygen to our muscles and brain in a ‘fight or flight‘ reaction.
These are good in times of genuine danger, but the body reacts the same way when you’re stuck in traffic, or rushing to meet a deadline. When the body remains in continuous stressed mode, energy is channeled away from repair and maintenance; the result is accelerated ageing and skin problems. It's commonly believed that the release of adrenalin during stress also stimulates the production of androgens — ‘male’ hormones that exist in both male and female bodies -
Vitamin A products have been used for decades to treat problem skins. This super vitamin, along with ingredients like salicylic acid, helps unblock pores and makes the environment of the skin hostile for acne bacteria. Never use harsh products that strip your skin of oil as you will end up with dry, irritated skin with even more oil than before as the skin tries frantically to repair its protective outer barrier. Find products that respect the skin’s barrier function and moisture, while working to control the causes of pimples.
