Skin Conditions Explained- by Dr. Mark Bishara, MD
Feeling a little dry or oily? Your skins appearance and texture may be due to an underlying skin condition that you may not be aware you have... or the cause of it.
There are four main skin types: oily, dry, normal and combination. Normal skin types, often found in young people are defined by smooth texture, no blemishes, dryness or greasy patches. Oily skin type, is due to overactive sebaceous glands and enlarged pores. Dry skin type is characterized by the lack of moisture and often associated with tightness and flaking of the skin. Lastly, combination skin types are characterized by having both dry and oily parts of the skin typically the known as the “t-zone”.
Skin types are often determined by many different influences but mainly internal influences such as hormonal changes, medications and genetic disposition. But can also be influenced by external changes as well. Such as, climate , skin care routine and sun exposure. All of these skin types are capable of developing a skin condition if not diagnose and treated properly.
Skin conditions are a underlying problem often causing other issues. Have your aesthetician do a skin analysis to determine if your skin is suffering from one or more of the following conditions: dehydration, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles or acne. All of these conditions are treatable with the right skin care products and professional treatments.
