Skin Advice

Please find below some advice for Skincare 

Child Skin Care

Children's skin is soft, smooth and velvety; less thick than adults skin. The skin care advised for children is one that is neither excessive nor insufficient. It should include a daily bath with warm water, using mild soap and a sponge. After the bath, apply moisturizers to keep the cutis humidified.

Women's Skincare

Women's skincare should be customized according to age and skin type. Indifferently, it should include a non-aggressive daily cleanse for body and face, moisturizers and protection against UVA and UVB rays. Additionally, we recommend regular exfoliation of the skin to remove dead skin cells, which is in constant cell turnover.

Men's Skincare

Men's skin is generally thicker than female skin, just as it tends to be more greasy. For this reason it is advisable to use products specifically formulated for your gender.

Our suggested skincare for men includes:

  • Daily Showers
  • Optimal hydration
  • Shave after bathing (easy hair removal)
  • Application of an after-shave cream that does not contain alcohol, as it dries and irritates the skin 
  • Use moisturizers with regenerative  and anti-inflammatory properties
Athlete's Skincare

Generally speaking, people that practice sports and exercise require a higher photoprotection: with continuos re-application throughout the day. The athlete's skin tends to be more dry, so it is important to hydrate continuously. Optimal cleaning is recommended after practicing the activity or sport. In the case of water sports, increase skin hydration.

EXTERNAL FACTORS THAT AFFECT SKIN

Your skins condition can be determined by various factors, internal and external. Some of which are:

Pollution and Contamination

When there are high levels of chemicals in the air, this increases the incidence of skin problems such as hypersensitivity, rashes, acne and dehydration. For this reason, it is especially important to carry out a proper cleansing routine.

Health and Lifestyle

The skin reflects the state of our internal health. A diet high in vitamins and minerals, adequate water intake, regular exercise and optimal sleep, benefits the health and appearance of your skin. Smoking, for example, accelerates the process of skin-aging, affecting the collagen fibers and skin tone, while also increasing the accumulation of toxins.

Air Conditioning

Long hours of exposure to air conditioning can result in a significant loss of moisture in the skin To prevent this from happening, it important to constantly moisturize the skin with creams and lotions.

Sun Exposure

Overexposure of sun is the number one enemy of the skin. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun promotes premature skin aging due to free radicals that are triggered from this. For this reason, it is imperative to use sunscreen on a daily basis.

Stress

Stress modifies the normal equilibrium of the body, including the skin, which could result in causing problems such as acne. It is convenient to practice relaxation exercises for the body and mind. 

Seasonal - Climatic Changes

Alterations in climatic conditions can also occasion changes to the skin. Cold temperatures and very Hot temperatures with low humidity, increase the chances of moisture loss, causing skin to  look dry and stiff.
