The busy woman’s complete guide to taking care of your skin

You’re busy. We get it. Juggling work, family and social commitments often leaves you with little to no time for yourself. But that doesn’t mean you should neglect your skin.

In the new era of เกมสล็อต there has been a change from 3 rows of cabinets in the form of a more beautiful graphic video slot. more amazing than before Have both picture and sound at the same time

The good news: Your skincare routine can be simple, instead of the 10-step routine popularised by the South Korean beauty industry. You just need to know what to do when you see the changes in your skin, whether from lack of sleep, stress, hormonal shifts, going back to the office and more.

CNA Women spoke to doctors for their advice on how to care for your skin.


HOW A WOMAN’S SKIN IS DIFFERENT FROM A MAN’S
On average, a man’s skin is approximately 20 per cent thicker than a woman’s. Dr Evelyn Tay, dermatologist at Dermatology & Surgery Clinic, said it’s mainly due to the composition of the sex hormones – testosterone in men, and oestrogen in women.

These sex hormones are responsible for the amount of collagen we have. Collagen is a protein that provides structure within our bodies, including our bones, skin, tendons and ligaments. In the face, it is what keeps the skin from sagging, giving you a youthful appearance.

Dr Lynn Chiam, dermatologist at Children & Adult Skin Hair Laser Clinic, explained that the collagen content in male skin reduces at a constant rate as they age.

In women, even though collagen does slowly decrease over the years – between 1 and 1.5 per cent a year from early adulthood, a 2020 clinical study in the Plastic and Aesthetic Research journal found – it tends to dip more later in life.


BATTLING MONTHLY BREAKOUTS
“It’s very common for women to experience acne, especially the week before the period starts, because oestrogen levels are dropping,” said Dr Chiam.

She recommends that if your breakout is related to your menstrual cycle, that you avoid using thick, creamy moisturisers and makeup during this time. Instead, apply benzoyl peroxide or alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) on acne-prone areas.

At the same time, Dr Tay added that during menstruation, the levels of oestrogen and progesterone, another female hormone, are at their lowest, which “makes the skin more prone to dehydration and can cause conditions like eczema to flare up”.
