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 to spend minutes in the sun without protective filters. I think it's pretty good, because with the spf 10 filter I can stay in the sun for 260 minutes.

Facial skin examination Gdańsk

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.
