Skin is the largest organ of the human body and for most people, taking care of it does not extend beyond washing it daily or perhaps applying some moisturiser. However, the human skin is much more sensitive than most people realise and it needs to be taken care of more diligently. Fortunately, with the advance in modern sciences, taking care of the skin has become quite easy, but knowing what is right is what makes all the difference.
What is important to remember is that the skin changes with age and that is why, it is important to alter the skin care regime as well. It is also imperative to remember that with age the problems related to the skin also change, which is why the solutions will also have to change. Wisdom would also lie in understanding that beautiful skin needs constant care and attention and this would be the result of good habits, which start right from the childhood.
There is a range of skin problems that can appear immediately after birth and while many might disappear within a few days, some problems may extend over a longer period of time. Some of the most commonly noted skin conditions in babies include moles, congenital skin lesions and vascular birthmarks. Some of these can actually be treated quite easily and it is best that the treatment be started as early as possible to reduce physical and psychological problems, later on.
Perhaps the most common problem encountered by adolescents is that of acne and often the scars that come along with it. To most people, acne is nothing more than a few pimples, but the fact of the matter is that acne can range in severity. Pimples and mild forms of acne often tend to clear out on their own, however, the more severe versions could leave the adolescent scarred, both physically as well as mentally.
This is the stage of life, when every man and woman wants to look their best at all times. However, this is also the time, when the first signs of ageing start to appear, especially on the faces of those who do not take care of their skin, from the early stages. If acne had not been taken care of during the adolescent years, there could be scars, which will now become harder to deal with. Similarly, there could be problems related to excess or unwanted hair, which should be easy enough to remove. This is also the right time to start thinking about how to prevent wrinkles!
For most people, this is still a part of the ‘young age’, signs of ageing will become more visible at this point of time. Constant exposure to the sun will also start showing its results, which could include pigmentation, fine lines and even tanning. People who are smart enough will get their skin checked immediately and undertake preventive as well as corrective measures for the same, because timely intervention can help.
This is the time when the signs of ageing become most prominent. However, if you have been taking care of your skin from the start, there would be little to worry about. This would be the time, when you would have to pay a little more attention to the fine lines, crow’s feet, pigmentation and sun spots. Staying active and having a proper skin care regime should take care of most of the commonly seen problems. It is also important to eat right and drink plenty of water.
If you have been eating healthy, exercising, and taking care of your skin, from the early stages of life, there should be little for you to worry about. There will be appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, but these can be taken care of, quite easily.
