I. ABOUT YOUR SKIN
If the questionnaire indicates your skin is DRPT, then you have the same skin type as many other beautiful women around the planet.
Italian idols like Sophia Loren, attractive Asian women like Lucy Liu, gorgeous black actresses like Halle Berry, an impressive Spanish beauty like Penelop Cruz, all have colored DRPT skin. copper.
While not all DRPTs are blessed with beautiful and gorgeous skin tones, nearly every racial group has it. Although less common in people of Northern European descent, this skin type is found in all groups of people, making it one of the most common skin types.
Your plump and wrinkle-free skin is the dream of other skin types ‒ those battling wrinkles.
You rarely have problems with oil and breakouts so your teens and 20s pass without worries. While your skin will get a little drier as you age, this is easy to deal with because healthy skin is more susceptible to products that other skin types must avoid.
Although white and colored DRPTs have a fairly good ability to tan (darkening of skin caused by excessive sun exposure) due to a moderate to high amount of skin pigmentation, tanning can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dark spots and melasma should be avoided.
Most of you get the message that excessive sun exposure should be avoided. Along with good genes and a healthy lifestyle, you will enjoy tight skin.
Regular moisturizing will help maintain your youthful skin quality. Use products that don't dry out your skin and protect your skin from the elements.
Tight skin is caused by a combination of living factors and genes, and for most DRPTs good genetics plays a major role.
In people of color and black skin, because the skin is healthy and has more melanin, there is less tendency to wrinkling, their skin is more elastic and lasts longer than white people.
For DRPT Caucasians, vital factors play a larger role in maintaining skin tautness.

II. PHARMACOLOGY AND YOUR SKIN
While this skin type is common in people of color and black, some white DRPTs also show signs of pigmentation such as dark spots, hereditary freckles, melasma or sun-induced freckles.
If you're a red-haired Irishman with a predisposition to freckles, you don't need to retest, you have this skin type. You all have a common predisposition to being pigmented. Redheads can be difficult to tan, but they are prone to freckles.
Dark-skinned DRPTs tan more easily but are more prone to dark spots.
Many people think freckles look lovely, but there are many manifestations of pigmentation that are not pretty at all.
Pigmentation and dryness interact to give you rough, black, dry patches on your knees and elbows. Rubbing with soap or water won't remove those "dirty" looking areas.
You may also have keratosis pilaris, which is small, pinhead-sized papules that are black, red, or the same color of skin on the back of your arms or on your thighs.
They don't do any harm, but are pretty ugly. Dry skin and a lot of rubbing are what causes them. Your parents or siblings may also have it, as it is linked to genetics.
You're also more likely to get dark spots on your face, especially when you're pregnant, taking birth control pills, or taking hormone replacement therapy. Because high levels of female hormone (estrogen) cause melanocytes to produce more melanin pigment.
For women and men, sun exposure can increase freckles or sun spots anywhere on the body. When they appear on the hands, they are also known by another name as age spots.
Dark patches can be caused by trauma such as cutting, ingrown hairs, papules, or exposure to heat. Cold and dry climates make your skin drier, especially on the arms and legs.
Especially when dry, your skin can be itchy. Dry skin gets worse as you age, so increasing your skin's moisture retention and water-holding capacity is key.
All dark spots, dark patches and melasma are the result of increased production of the skin pigment melanin. Dry, rough fabrics or forms of heat, irritating and inflammatory factors will stimulate the formation of such pigmentary disorders.
White DRPT people can benefit from dermatological treatments for dark spots, while blacks and Asians should follow the products I recommend to address this problem.
Thick, dark patches that appear under the arms can be a symptom of a disorder known as acanthosis nigricans, which occurs most commonly in people who are overweight.

III. LOOK-UP OF YOUR SKIN
* With DRPT you can get:
- Dry skin
- The bumps on the knees and elbows look darker than other areas of the skin.
- Freckles or sun spots
- Dark patches on cheeks (melasma, for example)
- Dark circles around your eyes make you look like a panda
- Dark areas of skin due to previous trauma or inflammation such as cuts, scrapes or acne.
- Itchy skin
- Peeling skin
- Peels or other treatments make dark spots worse
Dark circles under the eyes are quite common. They are caused by a decrease in blood circulation (congestion), thereby depositing a burgundy hemisiderin substance under the eyes, which also appears in bruised, bruised areas of the skin. .
Effective eye creams are those containing vitamin K or arnica, which speed up blood circulation, thereby addressing dark circles.
Over time, there are skin problems DRPT will get worse, but there are problems that will improve. Women will reduce melasma when the estrogen hormone decreases in middle age. Meanwhile, freckles and sun spots increase with age, and dry skin is often worse after menopause.
– DRPT WORLDWIDE
DRPT Da Leather quite common in Latin America. In Venezuela, sun protection is deeply ingrained.
Five-year-olds have learned to use sunscreen regularly. Venezuelan women appreciate light, wrinkle-free, and blemish-free skin.
Venezuelans admire and respect beauty so much that women, after reaching the crown of Miss Venezuela, are sometimes elected as high-ranking politicians.
Latino DRPTs don't like washing their faces with soap and water because they know they dry out their skin. They use an oil-based cleanser, then wipe it off with a towel to create a light peel.
Most Asians are pigmented and fall into the DRPT and DSPT skin types. Many Asians complain about oily skin, but when testing the oil on their face, most of them are dry skin type, so it is difficult for a person to accurately judge their own skin type.
VThat's why in Asia other ingredients (like kojic acid) are more commonly used as skin lighteners. To avoid potential problems from long-term use of hydroquinone, it is recommended to use products containing hydroquinone for four months and then alternate with kojic acid, azelaic acid, and other skin-lightening ingredients.
– Black skinned DRPT
Black skin DRPTs tend to develop “ash gray” which is the gray of the scaly patches, which are lighter than the black of the underlying skin. This is quite common in people with dry skin and this problem can be easily treated with a moisturizing product.
Dark spots that develop at the site of a previous wound are difficult for blacks because it lasts much longer than the wound itself.
Black people often fear that these dark spots are permanent scars, but they are neither scars nor permanent.
You will also have a harder time than a white DRPT when it comes to removing dark spots.
Light treatments (which are often used to treat dark spots) aren't going to work for you, as light can affect your entire skin pigmentation, not just the dark spots you want to remove.
- Dry skin
- The rough patches on the knees and elbows look darker than the rest of the skin
- Dark spots on the face (melasma, for example)
- Black patches with previous trauma or inflammation such as cuts, scrapes, acne
- Itchy skin
- Peeling skin
- Skin peels or other treatments make dark spots worse
If the questionnaire indicates that your skin is very dry, you may have flaking all over your face as well as your head (dandruff).
For people of color, dry skin is often made worse by hair care products. Unlike sensitive skin, healthy skin does not react (like a rash or itchiness) to these ingredients, but you will feel them very dry.
Hair care products are not mentioned, but if you find you have too much dandruff it is suggested that you look for gentle shampoos, avoid shampoos and hair care products containing detergents, avoid products Hair straighteners, dyes, hair treatments contain harsh chemicals. You should also limit going to the hairdresser to minimize the risk of being affected.

IV. RISK OF SKIN CANCER
Although your skin is less likely to develop melanoma than non-pigmented skin types, white DRPWs still have a relatively high risk of developing melanoma.
It's a type of cancer that can be saved when caught early. You should see a dermatologist regularly, especially if you often get sunburned.
Light treatment can easily remove troublesome dark spots (they can develop into cancer), but know the underlying factors and get regular skin cancer screenings for cancerous lesions. melanoma is still very important.
If you are a DRPW with some of the following factors, you have a fairly high risk of developing melanoma.
- White skin
- Sunburns easily
- History of one or several severe sunburns
- Many hereditary freckles
- Family history of melanoma skin cancer
If you have red hair, your risk is higher. Studies have found that the MC1R gene is associated with red hair, freckles, and melanoma formation.
Freckles are not just a cosmetic problem, they are also an early warning sign of the possibility of skin cancer in the future. If you have these symptoms, you should see your doctor at least once a year, especially if you have a history of frequent sunburns.
The lip area is most susceptible to cancer because the lips do not secrete oil, but the oil contains high levels of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects the skin from aging and cancer.
That's why some lip balms often contain vitamin E as a protectant. Grocery stores also sell vitamin E oil, which is too oily for most areas but can be used on the lips.
V. YOU NEED MOISTURIZER
Moisturizing is vital to combat dry skin. But just applying oil to the skin is not enough, your goal is to pull the water into the skin.
So the method of using mineral water before applying moisturizer. You should apply moisturizer immediately after spraying water. If you let your skin dry before applying moisturizer, it can dry out your skin.
You should use a moisturizer with SPF to prevent sun exposure that leads to dark spots. Wait 5 minutes for your skin to absorb the sunscreen ingredients before applying makeup, this will help prevent foundation from melting.
The foundation you use can also provide additional moisturizing and sun protection. Whether you use foundation or not, you can apply additional moisturizer if needed, both in the morning and at night.
Because your skin is healthy, you need products that contain ingredients that penetrate the skin like retinol or vitamin K. Alcohol-based products are too drying for your skin.
Study the list of ingredients on the label to make sure any product you're planning to buy doesn't contain alcohol in the top seven ingredients. Glycerin is used in many creams, lotions, soaps to help retain water for the skin, so you can use products containing this substance.
note: Moisturizing products will help your dry skin, while reducing itching and reducing “ash gray patches”. Use sunscreen to protect your skin and help reduce pigmentation.
BECAUSE. DAILY SKIN CARE
The purpose of daily skin care is to address dryness and dark spots with products that increase water retention, moisturizers, and skin brighteners.
Antioxidants (such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E or green tea) also work to reduce inflammation, which helps reduce dark spots and fight aging. Retinol is also anti-aging and helps lighten dark spots.
If after two months on this regimen you still need more help with your dark spots, see your dermatologist for a prescription retinoid.
DAILY SKIN CARE
1. CARE MODE
- In the morning, wash your face with a face wash. If there are dark spots, apply a skin lightener directly to them.
- Next, spray mineral water all over your face then apply eye cream if you want.
- Then apply a moisturizer containing sunscreen (SPF), and finally apply foundation if desired.
- In the evening you should wash your face and apply a skin lightening product to the dark spots.
- Then spray mineral water all over the face and neck. Then apply an eye cream if desired, and finally a night cream.
Glycolic acid cleansers help skin better absorb other beneficial ingredients in your skin care regimen. Glycolic acid also helps to brighten your complexion.
Glycerin soap is also good for DRPT because glycerin holds water very well.
- Skin whitening products
Use skin lightening gels when you have dark spots. If the products below don't work, see a dermatologist for a stronger prescription.
- Mineral water spray
Mineral water is obtained from mineral water sources. It does not contain chemicals such as chlorine that are often added to the tap water we still use to keep the water free of algae and other microorganisms.
Spray mineral water on your face before applying eye cream and moisturizer. Moisturizers and eye creams will help retain water, turning the skin into a reservoir and pulling water into the skin. This is especially good for skin in dry environments.
These moisturizers help address dry skin and relieve itching. Day moisturizer should contain sunscreen to prevent dark spots and skin cancer.
- Body moisturizer
Although body moisturizers won't be discussed in this book, since your dry skin needs treatment, I'm breaking the rules with you.
Heavy moisturizers like Cetaphil cream or moisturizing oils are often not suitable for use on the face because they are too greasy.
However, you can use them as a nighttime moisturizer or for a full body moisturizer.
2. BUY US PRODUCTS
It's ideal to read the labels carefully when shopping for skin care products, as some ingredients will help increase water retention, while others may dry out your skin more.
- Sunscreen for your skin
Your morning moisturizer should contain sunscreen. Make sure products like moisturizer, sunscreen, and foundation (if you use them) have a total SPF greater than 15.
But if you plan to be outdoors for more than 15 minutes, apply sunscreen products (listed below) over your moisturizer and under makeup or powder (even if you're wearing sunscreen). After that, you should still choose a foundation containing sunscreen, because sun protection is never enough).
Cream sunscreen is best for you. If you find them too greasy, top them with a powder containing sunscreen (such as Neutrogena Healthy Defense).
If you're black, don't use sunscreens that contain Zinc Oxide (zinc oxide) or Titanium Oxide (titanium dioxide) unless they're tinted (because they're usually white on the skin). You should look for products that contain micronized zinc (known as Z-cote), the ingredient in SkinCeuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 that helps protect against the sun without leaving your skin white.
- Make up
Look for soy-based makeup products that will help prevent dark spots. Studies show that vitamin K and substances like horse chestnut will help improve dark circles under the eyes. One product that contains both vitaminK and horse chestnut is DDF Nutrient K Plus.
You can use concealer to cover dark circles under your eyes and dark spots
3. TREATMENTS FOR YOUR SKIN
Caucasian DRPTs can see a dermatologist for laser therapy, IPL, or peels to treat dark spots.
Many dermatologists combine one of these therapies with topical skin-lightening ingredients and sun protection.
If you have fair skin, light hair and a lot of freckles or a history of sunburn, the above treatments are very good for you. You should have an annual check-up to detect skin cancer.
Blacks should be extra cautious as any traumatic or inflammatory therapy will aggravate the dark spot rather than remove it.
For you, a slow process is best. Most dermatologists choose topical regimens and peels for treatment.
You are Asian, your skin may be white but you react like a black person.
So you should also be careful to avoid inflammation and injury, which can make dark spots worse. Asians should follow the instructions for blacks.
– Light treatment
Caucasian DRPTs may benefit from phototherapy. This therapy reduces dark spots without causing irritation. Light treatment can also cure redness and visible blood vessels on the face.
- Peeling off skin
Blacks or those who don't want light treatments can use exfoliators containing glycolic acid, resorcinol, or other skin-lightening ingredients. Jessner peel is a good choice for this skin type and needs to be done 5 to 8 times.
After the above article, what do you think? You have really understood your skin type right yet?
From theory to practice
Although Baumann's skin classification system is somewhat more specific and accurate in assessing skin, we should understand that this is only a systematic method from the perspective of four factors. factor, not a specific solution, is if your skin belongs to any group, you need to take care of your skin.
There are two issues to keep in mind:
• The skin on your face can have different characteristics, it is normal for the cheeks to be dry and the forehead to be oily. If the difference is small, that's okay, but if it's too big, maybe you should treat each skin area as different skin types and treat them separately.
Suppose in the above case, you can consider your cheek skin as DRNW and forehead skin as OSNT and then follow the corresponding regimen for example. The specific skin care is also reasonable to explain the spot treatment method, for example, if your skin has acne, where is it considered a special skin, only apply acne cream there. Just don't apply the whole face.
• Distinguishing skin type and skin condition: One of the dangerous mistakes of skin classification is the confusion between skin type and skin condition. Each person's skin type is fixed, but the skin condition is constantly changing depending on the environment and care.
For example, people with oily skin will have large pores and strong sebum activity, this is a genetic factor. Skincare normally cannot be changed. However, in the dry winter, the person's skin becomes more balanced, even showing signs of dryness. In this case, the skin type is still fixed with the element of oily skin (Oily) but the fluctuations in the weather have caused the moisture on the skin's surface to change. The purpose of skincare is to overcome the disadvantages of the skin type through the effect of balancing the state of the skin. This means that even if you know your skin is oily, when the surface of your skin is dry, you need to change the appropriate moisturizing measure to bring the skin state back to balance.
