Hair loss can affect most of us. This may be attributed to many factors that include genetic, hormonal, menopause, medication, and medical conditions which can really impact confidence.
Skin concerns due to both extrinsic and intrinsic factors include hyperpigmentation, acne, textural changes, and dullness, dehydration, slackening as fine lines, and wrinkles.

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition but can be d#ifficult to treat. It occurs as a result of an increase in melanin which is the natural substance that is responsible for the colour of the skin.
An example of hyperpigmentation is melasma which appears on the face, cheeks, and forehead, and above the top lip. Melasma is associated with hormones and sometimes appears during pregnancy due to the excessive amount of oestrogen. This may also happen in childbearing women who are on the contraceptive pill.
Hyperpigmentation can affect anyone; however, it is seen in darker skin that naturally produces more melanin. Another cause is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation can affect confidence however, there are treatments specially designed to address this issue.
Acne can occur from the early teenage years and may continue to adulthood.
Acne can cause inflammation that develops in the red or purple marks left behind after acne begins to heal, causes skin cells to produce more melanin leaving unsightly marks on the skin. These can remain on the skin for months, sometimes even years.
Rosacea is a progressive condition that mainly affects the face. This reoccurring condition can also be found on the eyes, nose, forehead, and chin. It is important to treat the condition with the appropriate product.
Rosacea seems to effects the ages of 30-50 years and is less common in younger people. There may also be a genetic link associated with the condition. There are several trigger factors that include stress, extreme weather, hot drinks, alcohol, cheese, and spicy food. Sun rays can also trigger rosacea where exposed areas of the skin are most affected.
Unlike acne, the pimples in rosacea are not typically tender and do not scar. The skin of a rosacea sufferer may become thickened as the condition progresses and this is not seen in acne-prone skin.
