By learning how to read your face, you’ll get a great overview of your skin.
If you think about it, you can learn a lot just by scanning your eyes over some ones skin.
You instinctively know when someone is unwell.
Or if someone is tired or stressed, their skin can often look lined or furrowed.
So the beauty of a facial analysis, excuse the pun! Will help you to make, informed choices about your skin.
Visual Face Analysis
Dark circles under your eyes, can be an indication of ill health.
Bags under your eyes, can indicate a build up of fluid in the eye area.
This could suggest there’s a problem with an under active thyroid, a slow thyroid means the energy system in the cell is low, therefore response to treatment is slow.
If I feel it is a thyroid problem, I always refer my client to their doctor.
Another thing to look for in a visual face analysis, is the colour of your skin.
Sometimes a pale skin can indicate a lack of iron, many pre-menopausal women are anaemic.
If iron stores are low, this can mean the body stops producing collagen and a lack of collagen, can lead to premature ageing.
If you are concerned about iron levels, consult a doctor for a correct diagnosis.
A face analysis, will help to identify skin tone and tightness, it can actually say a lot about someone.
For instance if the lateral brow is sagging, it can mean the growth hormone is low, volume loss in the cheeks or loose jowls, can mean there is a growth hormone deficiency.
As we age gravity pulls everything down, so maybe now is the time to invest in that new cosmeceutical cream.
The Importance of a Face Analysis
Hopefully, you can now begin to see why a skin analysis is important.
In fact, I don’t know how a treatment can be carried out without a consultation.
I carry out an analysis every time I see a client, even if I have a record of their skin from a previous treatment.
Because the skin is so susceptible to external and internal changes, the next time I could be treating a completely different condition.
The Naked Truth
If I find someone is suffering from any of the above conditions, they just don’t respond to a treatment plan as well as a healthy person.
To get to the root of the problem, a visual skin analysis is not enough as a stand alone treatment, it needs to be part of a package, that looks at the following:
- Medical history
- Dietary problems
I feel as a skin care expert, it is extremely important to be thorough, especially before performing a treatment, otherwise, the skin just doesn’t respond well to the treatment.
If you are planning on assessing your own skin, write down a list of things, that could influence how your skin looks and feels.
Then you will be armed with all the tools you need, to know exactly what your skin needs, to treat it effectively.
