Your Dermal Diagnosis is one of the most complex and challenging skin types because all four barriers to skin health are present: dehydration, inflammation, pigmentation, and aging. However, the proper skincare ingredients and regimen can remedy these skin concerns. Your skin type needs medical-grade skincare more than any other skin type.
Your skin does not produce enough sebum (oil) to protect it from dehydration, allergens, and irritants. Your skin is susceptible to dehydration, inflammation, and overactive melanocytes (pigment cells), and your skin has an increased risk of premature aging. Your skin feels rough, tight, and lacks radiance due to poor light reflection.
You experience facial flushing, facial redness, and visible blood vessels and may even, in more advanced stages, struggle with breakouts and skin thickening. You are also experiencing eye problems such as dry eyes and sore eyelids. Your inflamed skin makes you more prone to developing lines and wrinkles.
ADPR skin types also have an impaired skin barrier, meaning that allergens, bacteria, and irritants can more easily enter the skin, and water evaporates off the skin, leaving it dry. You struggle to find the correct skincare products that do not aggravate your symptoms.
Consistent everyday use of the correct products will allow your skin to repair itself, hold onto water and reduce its tendency for inflammation.
