Serious skin care is about maintaining healthy, radiant skin for a lifetime. With increasing age, the natural skin care mechanisms of the body are weakened. So serious skin care is about meeting the changing needs of your skin. So serious skin care is about constantly evaluating, analyzing and changing your skin care routines. Your skin care should change depending on environmental conditions, your age and changes in your skin type.
Serious skin care is also about awareness. With technological progress and research, more and more facts are brought to light every day. In addition, the composition and nature of skin care products seem to change over time. Testing new products is therefore also part of serious skin care. However, serious skin care recommends that you first use a new product on a small area of skin (not the face) just to see how your skin reacts.
Serious care also means that you know how to use your skin care products. Good practices include applying moisturizers while the skin is wet, using upward movements to better penetrate skin care products, removing make-up before bedtime, cleaning before wetting or applying make-up, using the right amount of skin care products, etc. So increasing the effectiveness of your skin care products is another area of great interest.
Some precautions, such as avoiding contact with detergents, are also part of serious skin care. Serious skin care means going easy on your skin. Things like over-exfoliation, the use of inferior products and the use of strong chemical products are all harmful to your skin. Some people have a misunderstanding about serious skin care. For them, serious skin care is – by using large amounts of products as often as possible. However, it is not really a serious skin care treatment (and that is why sensitization is so important).
Serious skin care also means consulting your dermatologist on the treatment of skin diseases. Ignoring skin diseases can be fatal to your skin and cause permanent damage. So if things don’t get better with over-the-counter medications, you should consult a dermatologist immediately. Auto operations, such as squeezing acne/blockages, are a big no (they can cause permanent damage to your skin).
Serious skin care is, therefore, more a question of precautions and preventive measures (than treatment). Serious skin care is both proactive and reactive. In fact, we can say that serious skin care is about proactively addressing the needs of your skin to minimize the need for responsiveness.
