Your Face Today
Figuring out your skin type isn’t as straightforward as it used to be. Forget dry, oily, combination, or sensitive skin – according to Dr. Jason Yip, Resident Aesthetic Physician at The DRx
Clinic, skin conditions have altered drastically due to diet, environment, and lifestyle. “People nowadays have more severe forms of acne and sensitive skin. Stress levels are higher than before, and unhealthy lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking, and lack of sleep aren’t helping the situation either. Other contributors include consuming processed, less than healthy food choices,” he says. CLEO zooms in on the new skin types and what may trigger them. Thankfully, there are also new products that target these conditions to give you your best skin yet.
