Beyond Skincare: Five Factors That Impact Your Everyday Skin Health

Think skincare products can do it all when it comes to transforming your skin? If so, we hate to be the ones to tell you that this isn’t quite the case. While it’s true that beauty brands like Juvaly put a lot of effort into creating game-changing formulas, the truth is that skincare is really just one piece of the puzzle.

Good products help, but understanding the other elements that contribute to the bigger picture, is the real key to achieving your goals. Here’s what you need know:

Factor #1: Climate

By now most of us understand that exposure to the sun influences our skin health and has the ability to compromise or damage your skin. However, it’s also worth noting that overall weather and climate conditions also play a role. Extreme temperatures, moisture (or a lack thereof) in the air, and other environmental aggressors, can be hard on your epidermis. Therefore, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and adjust your skincare routine to include protective products like moisturizer, sunscreen, and antioxidant ingredients that fight free radicals.

Factor #2: Genetics

Much like your hair and eye color, genetics passed on from our ancestors can determine aspects of skin health, such as skin type and even your skin’s aging process. Additionally, certain skin conditions like dermatitis, psoriasis, sensitive skin, and rosacea can be hereditary. If you find yourself contending with these issues, it can be helpful to understand the underlying factors at play, while still building a supportive routine specific to your skin type.

Factor #3: Hormones

From your teen years, and well into adulthood, hormonal fluctuations and imbalances will have a lot to do with your skin’s condition. Sudden spikes in hormones like testosterone play a role in triggering acne breakouts, and oil production. Meanwhile, estrogen levels are what determine things like moisture balance, production of melanin, and even the skin’s structure. While some of these things are beyond our control, it can still be very helpful to learn about your hormonal cycles, and take steps to address any imbalances impacting your health.

Factor #4: Internal Health

Beyond your hormones, just about any and all aspects of your health can show up on the skin. Certain diseases and chronic conditions can compromise the immunity and integrity of the epidermis leading to a host of issues, including acne, dehydrated skin, sensitivity, premature aging, and hyperpigmentation. Additionally, various medications used to treat illness can impact the skin as a side effect, causing similar concerns.

Factor #5: Lifestyle

Last but certainly not least, lifestyle habits can have a significant effect on your skin health both positively and negatively. A healthy routine that includes eating a balanced diet, getting enough rest, managing stress levels, avoiding smoking and excess alcohol consumption as well as incorporating exercise will all contribute to glowing skin. Conversely, when we fall behind in these areas, your skin will likely let you know by reacting accordingly.

Other Important Things To Know

While no cosmetic formula has the power to override all the factors involved in cultivating good skin health, Juvaly is a brand focused on providing supportive solutions. We know you have enough to think about when it comes to skincare, so we want to make your everyday routine easy and enjoyable. Our products are designed with an attention to preventative care, proactive age management, and the right active ingredients needed to care for all skin types.
