CORRECTLY RECOGNIZED SKIN CHARACTERISTICS BY
SKIN TYPES AND PROPERTIES 
​​
Knowledge about individual skin properties is helpful for choosing adequate skin care products and treatment regimens.
Common definitions of skin types and skin properties are listed below. 
The following aspects should be considered in this context:
Individual skin type may change due to external (e.g. climate, season ) and internal (e.g. medications, hormonal changes) factors over time – it is not static;
Several skin types and properties may be present simultaneously in an individual in different localisations, e.g. oily skin with irritated skin patches.
These characteristics should help you to choose the appropriate treatment program for a particular client.
This skin type is often associated with age, and often to be found in heavy smokers or those who sun-bathe for too long.
Reasons: poor diet: too much meat, greasy food, shortage of Vitamins A, E, and C. The skin complexion is often grayish. The blood contain too little iron. The Redox process is insufficient .
Personality type: heavy smoker, not enough fresh air. People with an unsatisfactory personal life. Such people often have a sad look in their eyes.
Treatment advise:
⇒ Vital Energy Treatment 
Combination skin is rather dry in some parts of the face (cheeks)  and oily in other localisations. (T-zone) 
Mixed facial skin tends toward dryness on the cheeks and around the eyes while being oily in the T-zone (nose, forehead, chin).
The dry parts and the oily parts require different skin care regimens. This skin type is very common.
Treatment advise:
⇒ Purity Intense - Oily Skin Treatment 
Skin with visible blood vesssels (red patches) .
Thin, fine skin texture with couperosis. The capillary walls often display a shortage of silicium and Vitamin P.
In thicker skin types, the couperosis often takes the form of an ailment. This means that different treatments are needed in different cases.
Personality type:
fine skin with diffuse red patches; Nordic type, blonde with thin skin. Thick skin with couperosis; fiery type with hot flushes (after heavy meals).
Treatment advise:
⇒ Skin Therapy - Couperouse Treatment 
​When this type of skin is pressed together it reveals tiny creases in the fold.
The pores are usually large and blocked, the stratum corneum forming a visibly horny layer.
Personality type:
sun-worshipper, women approaching the menopause, athletes, persons suffering from a sulphur deficiency.
Treatment advise:
⇒ Hyaluronic, Aloe Vera
Fine skin texture, often suffering badly; reddens easily, often tends to form erythræmia.
In many cases, it can also be sensitive, and display fine wrinkles.
Often related to a lack of Vitamins A, E, and F.
Personality type:
slim, androgynous type, intestines problems, tends to suffer diarrhoea.
Easy to recognize by dry, rough  palms. 
Treatment advise:
⇒ Dry Skin, Aloe Vera Treatments 
With age, the skin’s sebum production slows down, often leading to increased dryness, an accentuation of fine lines and wrinkles, and flakiness. The skin may appear dull, and finally start to itch and burn. In women, the shifting balance of hormones with menopause causes various changes. As their skin thins considerably after the menopause, women’s skin may become more sensitive to sun damage and weather extremes.
Another problem is hyperpigmentation, especially in persons with a long history of sun exposure.
While it is important to meet the needs of mature skin, it is necessary to keep in mind that not all persons over 40 experience the above-mentioned problems. Therefore different skin care regimens may be necessary in persons of the same age according to their skin type.
Treatment advise:
⇒ Time Control, Golden Skin, Skinvision

The lipid layers act like cement in a brick wall, simultaneously holding and protecting the corneous cells.
Ceramides are parts of these lipid layers. They are unusually large and act like links between the adjoining lipid layers.
The efficiency of the barrier-forming lipid layers can be impacted in a number of ways. The consequences are greater skin aging, wrinkles and loss of elasticity in the tissue.

Co-Enzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 was discovered back in 1956. 
Dr. Karl Folker and his research colleagues at the University of Texas  were the first scientists 
to realise the vital significance of Q10 for the respiration and energy production of human cell.
Q 10 is a fat-soluble substance, which resembles a vitamin, is present in most human cells, primarily in the mitochondria. 
It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, 
which generates energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. Without Q10 there  would be no energy, or rather no human cell would be able to carry out its function in the body. [Time Control]
