Care tips

Our skin is constantly exposed to environmental factors that can deteriorate it, but also genetics and some diseases determine the color of it.

Normal skin contains cells called melanocytes, where the production of melanin gives color to the skin, when your skin is very pale or white there is absence of these components and is known as: hypopigmentation.

 

Care tips

 

Avoid prolonged sun exposure

Pale skin is very sensitive, exposure to the sun without care can cause burns and the appearance of annoying blisters. You should use sunblock whenever necessary at least SPF 50+.

 

Beware of reddened skin

If you detect that your skin turns red or irritates very easily, apply hypoallergenic moisturizers. These soothing creams have moisturizers, sometimes aloe vera or chamomile that alleviate the discomfort.

 

Protect yourself from the cold


The pale skin is easily altered with changes in temperature, which causes breakage in the blood vessels and that are noted as small venitasm, type "spider veins" on the face or chest and neck.

 

Consume vitamin C

For your type of skin you need to eat more proteins and vitamins to take care of yourself. You can include in your diet, strawberries, kiwis, lemon, orange. As well as lean meats of beef, chicken, fish, eggs and dairy.

In this way you stimulate the production of collagen and protect your skin.

 

Visit the dermatologist regularly

By doing an annual check you protect your body, if you notice that there are more freckles or moles than normal, it is better that you do it. White skin is more prone to wrinkles, spots and rough spots.
