What can you find out on a facial skin test?

At the end of July, I had the opportunity to participate not only in the study of the scalp, but also the facial skin. Facial skin examination was carried out in Gdansk (Galeria Bałtycka) as part of Douglas Care Institute. The result of this study is the knowledge that my skin hydration is too low, but we'll talk about that in a moment.

The event itself was well prepared. There were also tasty and healthy snacks. Only my spouse was bored a little, because the conversation after the examination, as it turned out, lasted almost two hours. I also managed to take some pics for fasting.

Facial skin examination is performed with a special device that tests skin hydration, elasticity and pigmentation. I was most interested in pigmentation, because this study shows how much I can spend in the sun without protective filters. As it turned out, my skin has pigmentation, which allows 26 minutes of sun exposure without protective filters. I think it's pretty good, because with the spf 10 filter I can stay in the sun for 260 minutes.

The result of the moisture level was a big surprise for me. It is very low (30%), although I use moisturizing products. That means I have to drink more water because important is not only moisturizing through cosmetics, but also from the inside.

It wasn't surprising to me that since the level of hydration is so low then also the skin elasticity will be low (26%). I definitely need to drink more water and moisturize my skin properly.

It is worth going to examine the facial skin, if only for a simple reason: results that you will not get in any other way. I always thought that my skin was properly moisturized, and only this study showed that, unfortunately, I was wrong.

Thanks to such an examination, I know what I should focus my care on so that my skin is firm and looks beautiful despite the passage of time.

The examination is followed by a detailed analysis of the test results, as well as the selection of an appropriate care program. In my opinion, this stage was the best, because in addition to discussing the study itself, I could talk to Magda about new products in Douglas, and also gossip about cosmetics.

    And someone has recently used the so-called multispectral skin analysis? Apparently it is a new technology in skin diagnostics.

    Hello, very interesting article. He interested me to sign up for an event with me in the city. However, a lady from the staff of Douglas said that the condition for participation is the purchase of products that specialists choose. I got the place on Lancome, which means that such a set will be able to cost over 1000 PLN. This slightly changes my approach to the entire study. If you could answer me: what was your experience in this matter?

      I was invited for such research because of blogging. I didn't have to meet any conditions 🙂

    Nice evencik, I'd love to go for it, but knowing me from 10 I will miss it before I get it 🙂
    I wonder what would happen to me, although I suspect that the level of hydration is also low 🙂

      Yes, of course! I thought I was doing everything right, and here I am - not enough hydration 😉 if you have a moment, go to Douglas and arrange a specific time 🙂

    Last year I was on a similar test, it was in King Cross in Poznań 🙂 A very nice woman told me about my complexion, she pointed out what cosmetics to use 🙂 Pleasant thing 🙂

      It's great that you also liked this study. I think that this is a very cool thing, because you can learn something that you do not even expect;)

      Well, unfortunately, usually everything happens in larger cities 🙁

    Oh, I'd love to undergo such tests. It's worth knowing which cosmetics to choose for your skin. 🙂

      Nothing stands in the way. Just choose the city that is closest to your place of residence and take advantage of the research 😉

    Last year I had such an examination and I will gladly go to Katowice in November 😉

      You just have to ask if the registration applies, because unfortunately I do not know. For sure if you go / write to Douglas they will answer odpowiedz

    Nice thing, it's a pity I don't like the dates 🙁

      I plan to go to Gdynia in October to check if something has changed in terms of hydration. I drink a lot more water now and use moisturizing cosmetics.
      I will definitely write about the results on the blog 🙂

    I think each of us would like to know the percentage of skin hydration! Envy 🙂
