The skin on the face, Facial acupuncture can help rejuvenate the skin

The facial skin is slightly different from the body skin though it is a part of it. The skin cells on the face are generally smaller than those on the rest of the body. The skin on the face is thinner than that on the body. There is less fat on the facial skin and more hair follicles, sweat and oil glands. If hair follicles become plugged with oily secretions, acne starts. Water is lost from the face more quickly than from the body. when facial skin becomes dry, it can feel rough and tight, even reddened, scaly and itchy.

There are four types of facial skin. Normal skin type is the skin is neither dry nor oily. Dry skin type is the skin tends to be dry and often feels tight and rough. Oily skin is the skin feels oily and more prone to have acne. Combination skin is the skin dryness varies at different area: dry cheeks and oily T-zone around the nose.

Dry skin? acupuncture can help

The skin becomes dry when it loses moisture. It shows noticeable tightness, roughness and even scaly, chapped and itchy. It makes the skin aging quickly and wrinkled.

There is a natural lipid surface barrier to protect skin from water escaping. If this barrier is broken, the water loss makes the skin dry. Sun exposure is number one factor for skin damage causing skin dryness. Other factors include hot, cold and dry air, alcohol and smoking. The internal factors that affect the skin dryness include genetic influences, hormonal changes for example, during menopause the amount of oestrogen in the body is reduced, and this can result in the skin becoming dryer, aging, the skin’s ability to produce sweat and lipids decreases as people get older due to a reduction in function of sebaceous and sweat glands in the skin, diet, there is no doubt that the diet affects the skin dryness, lack of unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins contribute to the dry skin, and dehydration.

Acupuncture improves skin circulation and moisture to rejuvenate the skin.
