The skin is not only a wrapper that separates us from the outside world, or an aesthetic package that is an end in itself, but it is a real barrier, a protection system that must be cared for and pampered as such.
Having a beautiful skin is not just a matter of aesthetics, but a sign that our first defense is in good shape.
But when is our skin in perfect health?
When it is bright and well fed. This should happen naturally but most of the time it is up to us to take care of her, mainly thanks to good and correct nutrition and with the support of specific and dedicated body creams.
Attention to food! Eating lots of fruit and vegetables provides all the substances necessary to purify, strengthen and brighten the skin. In addition to food, the best internal ally for skin health is water: never drink less than one liter per day!
As regards, however, the support of specific creams, these have the function of strengthening the beneficial effect of a balanced diet, of pampering the epidermis and of intervening in situations and problems that we can suffer from.
Most of the time our attention is focused on the skin of the face, but it is the skin of the body, which is the one that, most of all, needs constant care: how many times have we found it opaque or dehydrated? how many times, even for stress and psychological factors, did the skin show suffering? and finally, how many times have we wanted smooth skin?
Let's focus on our body starting from the assumption that, the skin is not the same on the whole surface.
The skin of the legs is usually more fragile and chapped, in addition to internal factors, it is subjected to mechanical stress caused by the rubbing of clothing; the skin of the back, on the other hand, can be more easily oily or present imperfections, this is because it is the most neglected and less nourished part of the body. It will seem counterintuitive but often the skin is oily because it is not hydrated enough.
TYPES OF SKIN
As we have already said, the body can present a non-uniform epidermis and with various problems also opposite to each other.
Let's see, however, what are the main types of skin and what signals they entail.
Sensitive and reactive skin is an epidermis that easily responds to external stresses: you can be sensitive to cosmetic ingredients, external factors (temperature, sun rays, etc. etc.) or to any agent that irritates the skin, in fact the most common sign of sensitized skin is desquamation, redness and rarely erythema.
The skin, on the other hand, is oily when it has an accentuated shine that often results in pustules or pimples, small or large imperfections.
Finally, the skin is normal if it does not have any of the previous characteristics but requires, in any case, basic care.
