Skin can change depending on fluctuating hormones and outside factors like the weather. You must change skin care accordingly.
Tends to age quickly and can be flaky
Pores are barely visible with minimal sebum production
Shine free and taut or rough feel
Susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles
Skin needs supply of water (internally) and hydrating products. We lose about 1 pint of body fluid a day through epidermal evaporation. Those with dry skin should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
Air conditioning and wind exposure aggravate dry skin. Use a protective moisturizer twice a day, hydrating products nourish the skin and prevent premature aging. Occasionally, try using a moisturizing night treatment, skin absorbs active ingredients best when you’re asleep.
For makeup use oil based products, powder will appear cracked as they stick into creases and crevices of the skin.
