Facts about Asian skin

Asian skin is said to be prone to irritation as it has a thinner outermost layer called the stratum corneum compared to other ethnic groups. As a result, Asian skin becomes extremely sensitive to environmental factors and chemicals which can disrupt the skin’s pH level. Asians, therefore, need to be more careful with what products and treatments they use as most Asian skin do not react well to harsh treatments such as peels and chemical products.

Because Asian skin is thinner on the surface it is also said that it is genetically more predisposed to scar more easily than others. Therefore greater care must be taken with an acne breakout and when one is trying to heal from skin scarring.

All skin types contain about the same number of melanocytes but the amount of melanin they produce varies.  Melanin is a natural skin pigment that protects the skin from UV damage.  Dark skinned people produce more melanin and light skin people produce less. Research has indicated that Asians have more photo-protective pigment melanin.

Dr Sagoo recommends the use of sunscreen religiously and using a product containing gentle skin brightening properties from the early twenties. Avoid hydroquinone!

Asian skin shows the highest levels of Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL), as well as increased levels of permeability. TEWL is the amount of water vapour lost through the skin under non-sweating conditions. Therefore, using products with high water retaining properties such as hyaluronic acid is good for Asian skin.

It is often said that Asian skin has more sebaceous glands and is oilier than Caucasian skin type.  This might have to do with the weather as well, but it is generally true that most Asians are constantly fighting to keep shine away from their skin.

Asian skin may get clogged easily, therefore, it is good to exfoliate once or twice a week. In addition, avoid harsh products that will strip away natural skin lipids and make the skin oilier.
