The five goals of skin beauty
Every morning, as soon as I get up, I look in the mirror to inspect my face. Are my cheeks dry? Is my skin looking dull? Are there circles under my eyes? At the same time, I also assess how I can make myself look better.
It helps to have a clear idea of what sort of skin you want to have rather than haphazardly going about your skincare. Oddly enough, many people are not certain just what healthy, beautiful skin is. In answer to this problem, I created important criteria for defining beautiful skin, based on the experience I gained back in my days working in the cosmetic industry. I call these the five goals of skin beauty: moisture, smoothness, firmness, elasticity, and clear complexion. The ideal skin is one that possesses all of these qualities.
With this five-point evaluation, all you have to do is identify the areas where your skin needs work, and move toward balancing out the five qualities. This is where caring for both your epidermis and dermis comes into play. Smoothness and firmness are primarily achieved through epidermal care, while dermal care is the key to moisture, elasticity, and complexion.
