5 Dominant Skin Concern Types That Affect the Look of Your Skin
The primary skin conditions that
affect the quality of the skin
– 78.8% of women say their skin is their main concern
– 9 out of 10 women feel that their skin is dehydrated
– 64% of women say this affects their confidence
1. AGEING / PREMATURE AGEING
If you compare skin from areas of the body that have always been protected from the environment with the skin on your face, neck and hands you’ll notice a significant difference.
This difference is ‘premature’ ageing. Excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays plays a major role. It is now known that low level inflammation in the skin can lead to the formation of enzymes that destroy collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Any action that leaves the skin in a state of sub-clinical inflammation will cause damage to these vital structures in the skin.
Dehydration of the skin and the application of caustic ingredients such as acids have been identified as causes of inflammation.
Recommendations of anti-ageing products:
Aloe Vera Avocado Mask
A versatile cream mask with active humectants and emollients to restore and protect moisture for younger, normal and environmentally exposed skins prone to dehydration and dryness.
A nurturing facial oil that targets and relieves irritation, sensitivity, dryness and dehydration. Aloe Vera Avocado Vitamin E Oil is rich in biomimetic triglycerides and fatty acids to restore barrier function whilst reducing trans-epidermal-water-loss.
For demanding skin lacking elasticity and visor and to combat expression lines and wrinkles.
Your skin constantly loses moisture to the environment.
The moisture is replenished from underneath, from inside your body. Balance is all-important: if moisture is lost quicker than it can be replenished your skin will get dehydrated.
Dehydration can lead to many problems, including redness, low-level inflammation, pigmentation shifts and sensitivity. Symptoms are dehydration lines and tightness of the skin.
In severe cases micro-injuries caused by the contraction of skin cells may lead to an itching sensation or the skin may feel rough, like sandpaper.
These conditions are warning signs of premature ageing. Dr. Spiller creams are formulated to ensure lasting hydration of the skin.
Recommendations of dehydration products:
Azulen Cream Mask
A visibly repairing cream mask with skin smoothing emollients to reduce the appearance of redness in irritated skins prone to reactivity.
Semi-liquid care preparation for the intensive care of face, neck and décolleté. Balances loss of moisture and very often solves skin problems which did not respond to other treatment methods.
3. SENSITIVITY / REDNESS
Very few skins are truly ‘sensitive’. Mostly, we speak about ‘sensitized’ skin, i.e. the skin appears sensitive because of what we have done to it, or what we may have omitted to do.
Dehydration of the skin will lead to micro-injuries, leading to inflammation and to sensitivity.
The application of aggressive ingredients will cause the formation of inflammatory molecules, leaving the skin red and sensitive. Any action that interferes with or weakens/damages the skin’s natural protection is likely to lead to sensitivity and to redness.
In fact, diffused redness is now a very common condition.
Recommendations of sensitivity products:
Hydro Colour Tinting Cream
A 3-in-1 moisturising foundation and day cream with natural tint formulated to restore and protect moisture for all skins. Hydro Colour Tinting Cream immediately perfects and smooth the skin for instant radiance and soft-focus colour.
Body lotion with stabilized Vitamin C (L ascorbinic acid) and Vitamin E, penetrates fast. This special combination of active substances counteracts the oxidation effect of sun radiation.
It must be remembered that sebum, the skin’s own oils, are one of the main tools the skin uses to slow the loss of moisture from the skin.
It has been said that a total lack of the skin’s own oils would lead to a daily loss of 20 litres of water through the skin. Your body perceives dehydration of the skin as a danger; it responds by upregulating its production of sebum.
Oiliness is an indication that the skin is trying to protect itself against moisture loss.
The solutions is counterintuitive: if you apply an oil-based moisturizer that ensures long-term hydration the skin will tend to normalize its production of sebum. You should not be afraid of oils in your skin care cream – they are important to the health of your skin.
Recommendations of breakout products:
Propolis Day Cream
A non-comedogenic day cream with active anti-bacterial ingredients to purify problematic complexions prone to breakouts, pimples and acne.
A clarifying and re-balancing toner for a refreshed and purified complexion. Moisturising Toner with Herbal Extracts restores the skin’s optimal pH whilst removing cleansing residue.

When carefully looking at the skin, a number of features can be recognised which contribute to the overall appearance of someone’s skin. The appearance of the surface of the skin is the result of a complex interaction between light revealing the fine textures and glyphic patterns of the surface, the shine of the light reflecting of the lipid film or the scattering of light through rough or dry skin cells. A skin analysis is important to determine what is the right treatment and skincare for your skin health.
