Types of Skin
Did you know that your skin type can be categorised into more than one category. Women in the UAE either have fair or dark skin. Fair skinned individuals may not tan, although they might get sunburnt. It is important for such people to apply sun protection. On the other hand, dark skinned individuals have a higher chance of developing pigmentation disorders. Therefore, they must be careful while opting for chemical or cosmetic procedures and laser therapy. Consult a dermatologist before any such procedure.
Dermatologists also categorise skin types, on the basis of oil produced, into four types: dry, oily, combination or normal. You must assess your skin regularly because it can change from oily to normal or dry to oily due to changes in the weather, diet, lifestyle or products that you use. You should choose skincare products accordingly. For example, while choosing depilatory wax, you should read the label carefully to pick one suitable for your skin.
Winter Skin Care Tips
- Moisturise Daily – Although winters in the UAE are mild, you might experience dryness and chapped lips. You must use a moisturiser at least once a day. You can do so at night before going to bed. If it does not suffice, you can repeat the procedure one more time. You must keep a small container of petroleum jelly within reach at all times to help get rid of chapped lips.
- Use Sun Protection – Contrary to popular belief, a sunscreen is not only for the summer. You can get sunburned even in winters. You need to use a sunscreen before going out in the sun due to the dangerous ultraviolet rays. You can use a lotion, gel based or a cream based product.
- Proper Cleansing – You must clean your skin properly before you hit the bed. Sleeping with dirt, blocked pores and makeup can give rise to acne and blemishes. It is a good idea to use a soap free cleanser.
- Eat Right – What goes inside shows outside! Include foods that are good for your skin. Nutrients such as Vitamin C and E and proteins must be included in your daily diet.
