There are many superficial therapies available that work temporarily. Acne is not a temporary condition unless it is related to the use of specific drugs or contact with something that irritates the skin. Many conditions LOOK like acne but are not. Be assured that this therapy will make you and your skin look and feel better. Learn to live with the skin you are in.
Geriatric Aesthetics- Dry skin, fragile skin, fine skin, delicate skin & skin thickening are all characteristics of aging. From head to toe skin changes with age. Since everyone ages at a different rate due to heredity, life style, sun damage, medications, diet, attitude and sleep patterns, et.al. the actual age of skin to be considered in a "geriatric state" is younger for some than others. It is the characteristics and conditions that matter. Skin diseases and disorders such as Eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, puritis (itchy skin), changes in nails and hair are all considered in this category. The ability to take care of our skin daily also changes as our capabilities are altered by loss of vision, touch, smell even hearing and taste (loss of interest in foods due to loss of taste effects diet and therefore skin condition) as well as changes in capabilities like bending over or reaching for things, thermoregulation (imbalance of the bodies cold/hot temperature regulation) can effect one's interest in bathing and certainly loss of mental acuity effects not only the individuals abilities but then effects the caregivers capabilities as well. Caregivers are also welcome to learn more about skin CARE for those whose care they are responsible.
