Know more about Normal Skin

Normal skin has good hydration, tone, and resilience produced by a properly functioning epidermis and dermis that is well hydrated and adequately supported by adipose tissues. There is strong biological activity at the basal layer, blood circulation is active, and the metabolism is balanced. Normal skin looks soft, moist, plump, and dewy, and has a healthy glow and color. The stratum corneum layer is translucent, showing a fine texture, and there are no visible lines from dehydration or large pores associated with oiliness. The best example of normal skin is that of children, from birth usually until puberty.
Aging due to the passage of time, sun exposure, and other external elements such as harsh climate, dehydration, and poor skin care, is the primary factor behind the deterioration of normal skin. Other factors include insufficient water intake and an inadequate diet. Food devoid of vitamins, enzymes, and amino acids does not provide the cells with the nourishment necessary for proper cellular reproduction and growth. Improper skin care, such as lack of cleansing, is quite prevalent in children and teenagers due to the lack of skin care awareness.
Yet, in these cases, keeping the skin clean is essential. Cleansing twice a day (morning and evening) with an appropriate cleansing product can reduce acne by up to 25 percent. The use of harsh soaps and scrubs as well as the environment contribute to the deterioration of normal skin. Exposure to sun and the elements without protection dries, dehydrates, and prematurely ages the skin.
Normal skin requires proper morning and evening cleansing, plus protection from oxidation caused by free radicals and the sun. The consistent use of protective moisturizers containing anti-oxidants and a sunscreen during the day to prevent moisture loss and free radical damage, along with hydrating creams at night is essential. It is important that these moisturizers contain anti-oxidants such as vitamins E and C, idebenone, or coenzyme Q10. Occasional exfoliation is also beneficial. Sun protection is extremely important, even for children. Children should not be allowed on the beach without a proper sunscreen or in the snow without a good protective cream that includes UV and anti-oxidant protection. For normal skin the key is damage prevention and control.
