Odds are you've heard of the term skin care, but there's way more to healthy skin than what's on the surface. Just like overall wellness, skin health isn't determined by just one or two factors – it's the combination of things you do every day, from what you put on your skin to what you put in your body.
Your skin is one of the largest organs in your body – and definitely the most exposed. There are tons of factors that can lead to damaged skin, which can eventually take a toll on your emotional health. Rather than covering up those imperfections, we believe that focusing on the underlying causes is the best way to get skin that truly glows. And that holistic approach to skin health can lead to a happier, healthier you.
There are plenty of ways to measure skin health, but the big three are:
Hydration – According to hundreds of Skin Health experts, hydration is the single most important factor in healthy skin. Dryness, scaly skin, flakes or peeling, even tight-feeling skin can be indicators for lack of hydration.
Tone and texture – Simply put, this is how your skin looks. Is your skin dull and lackluster or bright and glowing?
Pores and congestion – This is a good measure of how clean and clear of obstructions your skin is. How visible are your pores? Are they filled with dirt and debris?
The best way to assess your skin is by visiting a dermatologist or aesthetician, but there are also plenty of things you can do on your own, like taking our online Skin Health Assessment. It's a good idea to assess your skin health over time, to spot trends so you can adjust your regimen as needed.TAKE THE ASSESSMENT
