identifying your skin type

The ilike organic skin care products are created to address specific skin types and conditions. So it is important that you identify your skin type in order to select the products that will have the desired and maximum effect.

Each individual's skin can be described as a "type" such as dry, normal, combination or oily, or you may have a specific "condition" such as acne, rosacea, chloasma, sunburn or sensitivity to name a few. However, usually our skin is much more complex. The experts behind the ilike organic skin care line have not only developed products but also a method for diagnosing, treating and caring for your unique skin care needs. By examining your skin, asking questions about your lifestyle, eating habits and genetic heritage, and learning about your skin care history, your aesthetician will determine not only the most appropriate skin care products to address your skin in its current state but also what regime will provide the best long term skin results.

dry skin

Your skin feels dry and tight and you sometimes see flaking skin on your cheeks, chin and forehead. Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas. When the skin feels unpleasantly stretchy, lifeless or grey, it is important to know what lies behind the dryness. The reason can be dehydration of the surface or deep layers, oil deficiency, improper washing, lack of exercise or excessive sunbathing. The result is the same, the solution: different..

normal/combination skin

Your skin has an even tone and is not overly dry or oily. Occasionally you may experience oiliness on your chin, nose or forehead or dryness on your cheeks, lips and around your eye contour area. You may also experience periodic outbreaks due to hormonal or environmental changes. Even perfectly normal skin needs daily maintenance and enhancing weekly treatments in order to avoid the effects of impurities and aging.

oily skin

Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes. Make-up seems to slide off your skin as soon as it is applied. Oily skin has the benefit of not showing lines easily, but needs to be maintained to prevent breakouts and to control shine. Phytoestrogen rich herbal products can control the functioning of sebaceous and perspiratory glands, thereby balancing the sebum production and beautifying your skin from the inside out.

identifying special skin conditions

Skin conditions such as acne or rosacea, can be treated with a healthy diet, exercise and active herbal organic ingredients applied to the skin. The following list covers the most frequently experienced skin problems. If you are not sure whether you have any of these special skin conditions, please consult your aesthetician.

skin sensitivity

Overly sensitive skin is characterized by redness or itchy spots, and often peels in scales and feels especially dry. This type of sensitivity tends to occur with people of fair complexion, light colored eyes, or those whose sweat glands do not function properly. In many cases, however, it is a result of lack of exercise, incorrect diet, pollution in the environment and even the use of certain skin care products. If the center of inflammation is around the cheekbones, under the jaw, on the temple or around the ears, the problem could even be rooted in metal teeth fillings or other dental problems.

acne prone

Acne can affect skin at any age from adolescence to adulthood. Acne skin is usually characterized by normal to oily skin with plugged hair follicles leading to the formation of pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. Seborrhea can be characterized by inflammation, severe outbreaks and possibly oily skin surface or yellowish scales causing itching. Acne and seborrhea are caused by hormonal changes or factors such as pollution, stress or an unbalanced diet. The good news is that such skin problems can be alleviated over time by lowering stress, following a healthy diet and by a consistent professional and home skin care regime.

rosacea

Sometimes confused with acne, rosacea often shows up as an inflammation and reddening on the nose, forehead, cheekbone or chin areas. Inflamed capillaries on the skin's surface give the complexion a red, blotchy or bumpy appearance. Pimples and pustules may occur, and in some severe cases enlargement of the oil glands of the nose results in enlargement of the nose, or rhinophyma.

wrinkles

It is natural for all skin types to sag as the years pass by, but inherited genes and an unhealthy lifestyle can accelerate the reduction in tissue firmness. Wrinkles are also formed when the connection of the keratin cells is too tight and cramped. Products with glycolic acid are effective in loosening this tight cell connection, thereby smoothing wrinkles. And bioflavonoids, phytoestrogens and OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) found in grapeseed improve the vitality of the skin. Combining products containing these herbal agents while living a healthy lifestyle, sunbathing wisely and always getting enough sleep, can significantly postpone the signs of aging.

uneven skin tone

Besides the pleasure it brings, sunlight often causes sorrow as well. Not only does it cause freckles, but also unwanted brown pigments (chloasma, commonly called liver spots) appear, too. These patches of darker pigmentation appear on the skin as one of the most accurate registers of aging.

sunburn

There is no life without sunlight. The UVA and the long UVB rays are essential to keep our immune system and sex hormones healthy as well as aiding in the development of Vitamin D that prevents osteoporosis and promotes the growth of children's bones. Due to the thinned ozone layer around the earth, harmful UVC rays are increasingly entering the atmosphere making it necessary to protect ourselves from sunburn and the sun's harmful effects.

cellulite

Women's fibrous connective tissues run parallel and vertically versus men's, which are arranged like a net. Additionally women's fat storing cells are just beneath the skin surface and can be easily seen, while those of men are deep amongst the muscles. Because of these factors 80% of cellulite problems occur among women. Estrogens, the female sex hormones, also play an important role in the appearance of cellulite at different stages of life by promoting the retention of excess tissue fluid. Lack of exercise, use of contraceptives, antibiotics or steroids, unhealthy eating habits and dehydration can also cause cellulite, as residue accumulates in the cells due to slower metabolism and impeded circulation. Even tension and stress can contribute by slowing down digestion and circulation.

stretch marks and pregnancy skin care

The skin does break when stretched suddenly resulting in what are commonly known as stretch marks, which remain lighter than the surrounding skin. Stretch marks are primarily caused by pregnancy or weight loss. They appear on the tummy area and the breasts of expecting mothers, while body builders have them on the skin above their muscles. They also often appear on the thighs and buttocks of overweight people after sudden weight gains, or on adolescents during a rapid growing period.

inflamed follicles

Congenital factors or excessive thickening of the keratin layer, which restricts hair from penetrating the skin's surface cause the inflamed follicles on the legs and bikini-line. Use herbal products that both peel and dissolve the keratin layer while softening and providing an antiseptic effect that eases the itchy sensation.

chapped and dry areas

It can be quite a painful experience when your heels, knees, elbows, hands or other body parts are chapped. It is the thickened keratin layer that is the cause of dry and chapped heels and other dry areas. It is useful to take preventive steps but once you already have the problem, you can find solutions from ilike organic skin care.

tired and swollen legs

After a long day of standing, walking or irregular exercise legs can easily become exhausted and painful. Insufficient blood circulation can cause swelling, fatigue and oedema. Not a skin problem though, but besides excersizing your feet you can improve the condition by applying herbal cosmetics rich in vitamins, trace elements and minerals that stimulate blood circulation.

male skin conditions

Stubble rash and inflamed follicles can be a result of sensitive skin. Or they can be a result of shaving products that make the skin tough and thick and restrict facial hair from penetrating the skin's surface.
