What is your skin type? Dry? But don’t you get some oily areas and breakouts sometimes? Or is it oily? But do you remember that last time it started peeling? Or, if your skin is sensitive and prone to irritation, it is not irritated and sensitive all the time, is it? So, do the different skin types really exist or were they created as a marketing and advertising tactic by large companies to sell more products?

The thing is, we all have the skin and they share same physiology. Male, female, Asian, African, Caucasian – this does not matter. Unless it is determined by some internal heath condition, gastroenterological problems or hormonal imbalances, the symptoms we get on our face are the skin’s reaction to external factors. Our skin physiology is the same, but we live in different conditions. And our skin reacts to different factors in certain ways.

For example, changes in weather affect skin as temperature variations may result in irritation. Hot temperatures make skin oily because your adrenaline induces additional oil secretion to protect skin from heat and sun. In colder climates, skin dries out. Irritation is another reaction, which is often caused by the wrong skincare regimen. Multiple publications in respected Skin Research and Technology Journal will tell you that there has been no scientific evidence to prove that different ‘skin types’ actually exist.

Here comes an important question: if a certain ingredient is harmful for one skin type, do you think it can do much good for another skin type?

We know that most alcohol-based liquids should not be used on dry skin, since alcohol dries skin out. At the same time, it is included in products for oily skin to prevent oiliness and to mattify skin. As a result, skin tries to fight this artificial dryness and starts producing more oil. This is why your mattifying lotions work great once you start using them but cannot fight the oiliness two weeks later after you’ve told your friends that you finally found your remedy! And what about ‘oil-free’ products for oily skin? Not having oil means having alcohol and don’t you think there was a reason for using natural oils in cosmetics for centuries? And if the ‘products for sensitive skin don’t cause irritation’, why do you dare apply these irritating components on YOUR face, even though it does not look irritated? We try to help our skin, but led by colourful advertising, we harm it more and more, don’t we?

 

The solution, however, is simpler than it may seem. Our body is smart and can take care of itself. What we have to do is to help it utilise the body’s own functions, to stimulate the natural rejuvenation of the skin. Besides leading a healthy lifestyle and sticking to a balanced diet, it is important to find a skincare system that helps your skin instead of harming it. Physio Radiance is a scientific and technological breakthrough that teaches your skin to rely on itself to regulate and repair.
