6 Most Common Skin Concerns and Their Remedies

Hi everyone,

Today’s post is about six of the most common skin concerns that many of us are likely to have faced at some point of time or the other. Broadly speaking, skin concerns can be broken down into six identifiable issues. The most important step in treating your skin concerns and getting a healthy, flawless skin will happen only when you identify what is wrong with your skin, what isn’t working for it, and taking the necessary care. Let’s take a look at these six broadly categorised skin concerns and how they can be recognised and treated.

Common skin care solutions

1. Dull Skin:

Dull skin is a fairly common skin concern. When you notice that your face starts to look dull and lacks that natural radiance and glow, it’s time to give your skin that boost of rejuvenation. Firstly, you need to get the dead cells out of the way by exfoliating your skin. Secondly, use a face serum with Vitamin C and AHAs, which have a brightening and rejuvenating properties. Thirdly, opt for face masks that contain fruit extracts, such as those of pumpkin and papaya. All these steps will restore the luminosity and youthfulness of your skin.


2. Dry and Dehydrated Skin:

Dry, flaky and dehydrated skin is especially common in the winter season, but it can actually affect you all year round. Drink plenty of water and other hydrating fluids. Always opt for moisture-renewing face masks. Use facial oils as part of your nighttime skincare routine. Including ingredients like oats, honey and plant oils in your DIY routines will go a long way in taking care of dry and dehydrated skin. If you suffer from flaky skin, an apricot, walnut or oatmeal based scrub will help.


3. Blemished and Acne-prone Skin:

This is one of the trickiest skin concerns you should give special attention to. It’s always hard to tell what’ll work and what’ll backfire for a blemished and acne-prone skin. However, clay, charcoal, tea tree oil and salicylic acid are your best ingredients to address this concern. Right from your cleansers and face masks to your serums and moisturisers, make sure to include clay, charcoal, tea tree oil and salicylic acid for best results.


4. Ageing Skin:

Fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin are all markers of ageing skin. The most important thing for damage control is to protect and hydrate. So, your sunscreen, moisturisers, serums and oils will play a key role in keeping your skin plump and youthful. Look for skin plumping and deeply hydrating ingredients in your eye creams, face masks and moisturisers. In general, you should switch to more gentle and hydrating products, such as cleansing oils and creams.


5. Tired and Stressed Skin:

Too much stress, long nights and junk food can really take a toll on your skin and make it look dull, tired and stressed out. The first thing to do is to drink plenty of water, eat clean and do a regular workout. Face massages will gear up the blood circulation and help de-puff and revive your skin. Additionally, you will want to look for skin-calming ingredients, such as aloe vera, turmeric, rose water, etc., in your skin care products to reduce redness, puffiness and other signs of stressed and inflamed skin.


6. Clogged and Congested Skin:

Air pollution can be very damaging to your skin. Along with bad air, other environmental pollutions can clog your skin and not let it breathe as it naturally would. Congested skin, along with oil secretions, can lead to blackheads, whiteheads and other skin concerns. What you need to do, then, is to detox your skin and clean up your pores from deep within. To clarify your skin and to decongest it, you will need chemical exfoliators like AHAs and BHAs. Look out for face masks and cleansers that have glycolic acid, salicylic acid, etc. in them.
