Measuring your skin health is essential to truly achieving your best skin. Just like measuring your blood pressure before seeing a doctor, or reading an eye chart before getting glasses, your skin health is an essential indicator of knowing what to use and do for your skin.
How often should you measure your skin? It depends how actively your environment changes, how your skin parameters change during a typical day or how quickly you want to achieve your goals.
Let’s talk of skin moisture. Moisture, one of the most essential components of maintaining good skin health and essential skin functions, changes over the course of a day based on your environment and lifestyle.
In the morning, all of us start at a specific moisture level (Point A). Your moisture levels may be what is considered in a healthy level, or the levels may be in the dry range. After your morning face wash, you would usually apply a moisturizer for the day (Point B). This step of adding moisture is essential to restore a protective layer after cleansing.
During the course of the day, your skin changes again: losing moisture at a rate depending on how healthy your skin barrier function is. If you are in a dry or sunny environment, you will lose moisture at a faster rate. Many of you re-apply moisture during the course of the day to keep the moisture levels up (Point C ).
Finally, in the evening, adding a night cream gives your skin a longer moisture boost over the night to keep your moisture levels high (Point D).
Getting a dermograph of your skin will let you know whether you are in a healthy moisture band or not. On knowing the moisture parameter of your skin, your esthetician or skin expert can then recommend skincare products that are ‘right’ for your skin.
Learn about your ‘skin health‘ profile with the dermograph and take charge of your skin.
