Skin conditions or skin concerns can often be considered a ‘translation’ of your skin type. Skin conditions are far more diverse and variable. Some skin conditions have the capacity to affect any skin type depending on genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Such conditions may be influenced by diet, health, medications, hormones, stress, smoking, UV exposure, and skincare practices. Sometimes post-treatments may require targeted skincare to prevent conditions from developing. There are literally thousands of medically diagnosed skin concerns/conditions, but some common, general skin conditions include:
This is the number one skin concern of women and men over the age of 30. Ageing is not considered a diagnosed disease – it is a natural process, leading to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and changes in skin tone and texture. Whilst ageing is a privilege and need not be feared as a primary skin concern, it is nevertheless recognised as a skin condition that can be exacerbated or diminished when adjusting external variables and using active topical skincare.
Uneven skin tone or dark spots caused by excess melanin production.
This is a subcategory of hyperpigmentation and is internally triggered by hormonal changes and exacerbated by overheating, stress, and sun exposure.
Insufficient moisture retained (or created) within the skin, resulting in dryness, tightness, and dullness.
5. Eczema and Psoriasis:
These are medically diagnosed inflammatory conditions characterised by redness, itching, and dry patches.
A skin condition characterised by the presence of clogged pores, pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads. There are numerous types of acne ranging in severity.
A medically diagnosed skin condition and generally considered under the sensitive skin type group. This chronic skin condition involves persistent redness, visible blood vessels, and sometimes small bumps or pustules.
Understanding the combination of your skin type and condition is key to tailoring an effective skincare routine.
