Common Skin Concerns & Conditions
Whether it's sensitive skin, pigmentation, clogged pores, or acne, learn more about common skin concerns and ways to improve skin health.
Uneven Skin Tone/Pigmentation: Hyperpigmentation occurs when the cells that make melanin become damaged, especially as a result of sun exposure. This can cause wrinkles, age spots, and further skin concerns.
Skin Texture: Skin texture may change as a result of hormones, clogged pores, and sun exposure. The buildup of dead skin cells can also contribute to bumpy skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Sagging Skin: As skin ages, collagen and elastin levels begin to diminish, resulting in the skin's surface appearing loose.
Sensitive Skin: Many people experience skin sensitivity as a result of environmental factors, allergies, and dry skin.
Loss of Firmness: As the skin ages, elastin and collagen production begins to diminish, resulting in the skin's surface appearing less plump and/or smooth.
Fine Lines/Wrinkles: Wrinkles arise as a result of the skin's natural aging process, and can be exacerbated by sun damage.
Dry Skin: Dehydrated skin can be caused by hormones, sun exposure, and aging. Those with this skin type should remember to hydrate and moisturize to prevent flaky, dull skin.
Aging Skin: Characterized by the increased size of sebaceous glands and large pores, as well as flattening of facial areas.
