Everyone dreams of having skin that is healthy, smooth and radiant. This state of skin perfection would have to derive from proper and attentive care. Your skin could convey its wishes, its needs for nutrition and concern. Listen to its voice, pamper it with timely care, and your skin will maintain its very best condition always. Balance: The First Criterion for Perfect Skin
At the crux of the latest global beauty concepts, lies the need for skin balance, which is the first criterion for perfect skin. Here, “balance” refers to the natural physiological functions of the skin, such as regulation of moisture, oil secretion, sensitive reactions and organisational structures. Only when these four areas are regulated and balanced, can the skin present its very best. Conversely, if there is an imbalance in the four factors, the skin will develop problems accordingly.
Warning Signal 1:Dryness, lack of moisture, slight peeling, dry wrinkles
Skin’s Revelation: Functional imbalance in regulation of moisture
The Best Solution: Emergency replenishment of moisture
Suggested Method: Give skin the ample moisturising nutrition it needs. Choose special moisturising skincare products that contain natural minerals, effective moisture-replenishing factors, natural compound vitamins, collagen, etc.
Warning Signal 2: Insufficient or excessive oil, whiteheads, blackheads, acne
Skin’s Revelation: Functional imbalance in oil secretion
The Best Solution: Balance oil secretion
Suggested Method: Choose skincare products that have oil-absorption, inflammation-reduction and germ-elimination properties. For skin that secretes excessive oil, take care of cleanliness and inflammation reduction.
Warning Signal 3: Sagging, signs of aging such as wrinkles
Skin’s Revelation: Functional imbalance in organisational structure
The Best Solution: Emergency replenishment of nutrients
Suggested Method: Focus on the replenishment of effective anti-wrinkle and skin-firming ingredients, such as amino acids, various vitamins, protein essences, etc, so as to enhance skin metabolism and restore its natural vitality within the shortest time.
Warning Signal 4: Weakness, itch, red spots
Skin’s Revelation: Functional imbalance in sensitive reactions
The Best Strategy: Emergency desensitisation
Suggested Method: Conduct a self-diagnosis first. If the condition is mild, nurse it using Bel’Air’s prescription. If the condition is severe, involving burns or abnormal swelling, consult a doctor or specialist.
Listen to Your Skin
These are some of the warning signals that will be sounded when a problem in skin balance occurs. Usually, the prologue will take the form of itch.

So, when your skin sounds the warning signal for imbalance, don’t ever neglect it. Putting the balance back into your skin will ensure its radiance and beauty! By Nur Syahid, a Natural Aromatherapist
