One Product Against 10 Skin Challenges
We all have challenges regarding our skin. What's your challenge? Click and see below how you can deal with it:
1) DRY SKIN
Dry skin is the one that lacks skin lipids; it has a thin and fragile appearance and it looks visibly inelastic, dehydrated and flaky. The reason can vary from person to person. After prolonged exposure to the sun, cold, air conditioning, excessive heating and wind, the skin tends to gradually dry out. Some other reasons can be diet, genetic predisposition, age, aggressive cosmetic products or vitamin deficiencies.
In order to remove dead skin cells present in the outer layer of dry, rough and flaky skin, periodic exfoliation is particularly recommended. Exfoliation helps the elimination of dead skin cells, promotes cell renewal, significantly increases the absorption rate of the moisturizing products you apply. Done regularly using a natural glove, exfoliation is the key to resolving the challenge of dry skin.
2) DULL SKIN
Dull skin usually is an indication of the lack of oxygenated blood. Tiredness, stress, lack of vitamins in our body or lack of sleep can be some reasons for dull skin. Surely one of the major causes that leads to having a grey skin is smoke, or the smog of large cities.
To have a radiant skin, you first need to exfoliate it in order to eliminate dead skin cells and then moisturize it. The massage during exfoliation will leave your skin refreshed because it will increase blood flow. Drinking lots of water, resting adequately, consuming vitamins C and A will also help awaken your dull skin.
3) OILY SKIN
Oily skin appears greasy and has a shiny appearance. The complexion is often dull, while the texture is irregular with enlarged pores, pimples and redness. Genetic factors, hygiene habits, environmental conditions, nutrition and stress can all contribute to oily skin.
A deep cleansing of the skin that has excess sebum is necessary to remove dirt. Exfoliating it with a 100% natural glove on a regular basis will help fight against the negative effects caused by oily skin. Allowing the skin to transpire with exfoliation will reduce the possibility of having dilated poles, blackheads and the formation of acne. Healthy nutrition, daily cleansing with a skin-friendly cleanser and hydration are other necessary actions.
Acne occurs due to the increased production of sebum and keratin, inside the hair follicle which can become infected with bacteria. Some causes of the increased production of sebum and keratin can be: stress, gynecological disorders, hormonal imbalances, the intake of certain medicines, cosmetics and air pollutants.
It is very important to exfoliate the skin regularly to get rid of the dead skin cells and dirt that are on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation will decrease to a great extent the possibility of having clogged pores that can be infected by bacteria. Exfoliating with a 100% natural product, made of pure silk, eliminates the possibility of further irritating your skin.
If you have severe acne on your skin, consult your dermatologist first before using the Matilde exfoliating glove.
Blackheads, or open comedones, are made up of accumulations of sebum - an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands to nourish and protect the skin from bacteria - and keratin. They are called blackheads because when the substances that compose them come into contact with the air, they oxidize and take on a dark color. Due to the link with the hormones, these imperfections tend to appear more during adolescence. Other factors that contribute to the formation of blackheads are: Poor or incorrect skin cleansing, excessive consumption of fatty and high-calorie foods, or the use of cosmetic products such as face creams and makeup containing greasy or oily ingredients.
By regularly exfoliating your skin with the Matilde glove, made from 100% pure silk, you can deeply cleanse your skin, eliminating dead skin cells and dirt from the surface, without irritating your skin. Making the skin transpire with exfoliation will reduce the possibility of having dilated poles and blackheads.
6) STRETCH MARKS
Stretch marks are small strips, white in color, which cross some body parts and occur due to rapid changes in shape and size, for example during pregnancy. Stress or certain diseases can also cause stretch marks.
A recommended method against stretch marks is exfoliation because cell turnover is stimulated. With this stimulation, collagen production increases, which is associated with the removal of damaged and altered cells. One thing to keep in mind about exfoliation is that you have to exfoliate consistently because the skin takes time to get used to new treatments. If you exfoliate once a week, massaging well the areas with stretch marks, the appearance of the stretch marks can be visibly diminished.
7) INGROWN HAIRS
It happens when the hairs, instead of developing outwards, grow backwards or sideways, finding no escape towards the outside and remain trapped under the skin. The problem is very common and often affects adolescents and adults, men and women.
Regularly exfoliating the skin with the Matilde glove is an excellent and effective remedy to eliminate the risk of ingrown hairs. Through exfoliation, it is possible to remove cellular debris and foreign substances, thus facilitating the growth of the hair towards the outside.
8) FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
In addition to the natural ageing process, genetic and environmental factors contribute to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Not using SPF, smoking, not removing make-up, high alcohol consumption, not moisturizing the skin are some factors that contribute to fine lines. Our goal must be to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines starting from a young age and the precautions are different.
A healthy diet, taking vitamins, drinking lots of water and protecting the skin against the sun are undoubtedly essential. In addition, exfoliating the skin of the face and body with the Matilde exfoliating glove is an excellent precaution against the appearance of fine lines on our skin. The massage during exfoliation stimulates circulation and promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin will be deeply cleansed, which will help the skin transpire better. Done regularly, once a week, during the shower, exfoliation has proven effective against the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin, usually caused by an abnormally high amount of the skin pigment melanin. Sun exposure is the main cause of hyperpigmentation, as it is primarily the sunlight that stimulates the production of melanin. Some other causes can be: Genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, certain medicine treatments, vitamin deficiency.
Exfoliation of the superficial skin layer is an excellent solution to hyperpigmentation as it promotes collagen and elastin production, stimulates blood flow and cell renewal. The important thing is to use a natural product that is gentle on the skin.
10) KERATOSIS PILARE
Keratosis pilare, commonly referred to as 'chicken skin', is a fairly common skin disorder. They are small red bumps, usually on the upper arms, thighs, buttocks and sometimes on the face.
It is possible to fight keratosis pilare with exfoliation because this disorder is about clogging of the pores following an accumulation of dead skin cells. It is therefore necessary to free the pores so that the skin of the surrounding area does not become rough. The ideal would be to exfoliate the points in question once or twice a week. It is important to use a 100% natural exfoliant so as not to damage the skin with keratosis. The Matilde exfoliating glove, made from 100% pure silk, is ideal to fight against keratosis pilare because silk is the least irritating material on the skin and is able to eliminate dead skin and dirt from the surface of the body quickly.
