Clear skin is generally the first to show signs of aging, which can happen in the middle or towards the end of the twenteeth.
Because fair skin is thinner and contains less melanin, it is more susceptible to aging due to the sun.
Clear skin has a hard time defending itself from the sun, so in its attempt to produce melanin, this can lead to freckles and hyperpigmentation. Lightening creams based on hydroquinone and retinol are effective in combating discoloration of fair skin, as are IPL and laser treatments.
Dryness of fair skin can occur for several reasons. While the sun is partly responsible, weather conditions, lifestyle choices and even skin care products can cause dryness.
When the outer layer of the skin is empty of water, it also cannot protect itself and dead skin cells make their way to the surface, leaving room for flaking.
Clear, dry skin responds well to moisturizer and, again, retinol. Retin-A, for example, helps regulate the rate at which surface cells turn around, which can help eliminate dryness.
Due to the lower level of melanin in fair skin, a greater amount of UV rays is absorbed, which leads to a breakdown of collagen and, consequently, to the formation of fine lines.
Botox and Dysport are the ideal solution to treat these fine lines, in particular around the eyes and between the eyebrows. If the lines are associated with changes in skin texture, you can use laser resurfacing and laser reloading to rebuild collagen.
