As the largest organ of the body, the skin is your body’s first line of defence that protects you from microbes and elements present in the environment, where they can cause discomfort and infection. Beyond promoting good health overall, having good skin also has to potential to boost your confidence as you move about in the world.
Dirt, pollutants, unhealthy diet and hormonal imbalances all play a part in contributing to the health of your skin. It shows up on your face with signs of redness, inflammation, blemishes and dry skin. Some skin conditions can change the facial appearance and leave noticeable marks and scars, which further adds on to the feeling of extreme self-consciousness.
How you can take care of your skin
Just like any part of your body, what you feed it and how you treat it will determine how healthy your skin will be. Proper skin care ensures that the skin can maintain optimal function and help retain a youthful glow and resilience.
A regular daily skin care routine
You should already have established a daily regime to cleanse, moisturize and protect your skin. Cleanse in the morning and night to remove impurities that build up on the skin’s surface, which can potentially cause breakouts to occur more easily. Replenish your skin with moisturizing products to restore adequate hydration so your skin can perform its protective functions. Dehydrated skin can cause problems from dull complexion, uneven skin tone to breakouts. Don’t forget sunscreen – apply generously to protect the skin from sun damage.
A healthy, balanced diet
Beautiful skin also starts from within. What you eat will benefit many functions in your body, including your skin health. Make sure you are getting enough essential nutrients and vitamins to protect your skin and keep it healthy. Eat a varied and balanced diet, including healthy fats from oily fish and nuts and antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetables, which contain the optimal levels of the nutrients the skin needs to stay soft, supple and blemish-free.
With age, your body slows down the production of substances in the body needed for skin health and integrity, such as elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. With the appropriate aesthetic treatments, you can replenish and boost your skin’s production of these compounds to retain a healthy, glowing complexion. You can also address more persistent skin conditions such as pigmentation, wrinkles and acne scars.
For recurrent acne breakouts, the AGNES treatment will target hyperactive sebaceous glands and problematic acne-prone pores with the use of radiofrequency energy. The oil gland’s size and oil production are also reduced, so blockages are less likely to happen. This acne treatment destroys the offending sebaceous glands, so hair follicles do not get inflamed and infected anymore – which means no acne breakouts.
If you’ve been wanting to get rid of acne scars, the INFINI acne scar treatment is able to reach below the scar tissue using a patented microneedle system to stimulate deep collagen production. With a penetration depth of up to 3.5mm below the skin, the scars can be pushed up from beneath and healthy, organized collagen fibers can be remodeled to replace the old scar tissues. By stimulating your skin to produce and increase collagen levels, you will be able to address sagging skin and wrinkles and experience a more lifted and youthful complexion. Face fillers can also reduce depressions caused by scars and fill up areas on the face caused by volume loss. Most of them contain Hyaluronic Acid to add volume to the facial tissue, reduce the appearance of ageing and at the same time, helps stimulate the collagen to achieve plumper skin.
