DO LATINAS NEED SPECIAL SKINCARE PRODUCTS?
Honey. Caramelo. Miel. Nieve. Trigeña. Morena.
There are so many different ways to describe the vibrant colors of Latina skin tones, yet despite our wildly different genetic backgrounds, we share many of the same skincare concerns. Namely, Latina women typically report higher incidences of :
• Oily Skin
• Mild Acne
Even though Latinas command a large influence within the beauty industry, Latina-specific skincare has gone largely ignored....until now.
WHY DO LATINAS SUFFER FROM THESE 3 SKINCARE CONCERNS?
Empezamos by defining what oily skin is: Oily skin is defined when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce too much sebum, leaving a person with a greasy appearance. ¿Sabes cuando you glide your hand over your forehead after your 3pm meeting and realize you're greasier than this morning's empanada? Yeah, that's it!
Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin, but due to environmental or genetic factors, sebum production can kick into overdrive leading to congested pores. In other words, it is way too much of a good thing.
Skin with more melanin (the naturally occurring pigment that protects our skin cells from UV rays y te hace morena) tends to have more oil glands and hair follicles which explains why Latinas typically report higher incidences of oily skin, acne and hyperpigmentation!
BUT WAIT - HOW DOES SUFFERING FROM OILY SKIN LEAD TO ACNE & HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Oily skin blocks pores, which leads to acne. Picking, popping or even the existence of pimples alone will lead the skin to produce dark spots on the area as a response to injury.
Latina women are also at higher risk of hormonal disruptions, which affects the sebaceous glands. Androgens, a naturally occurring hormone, peaks right before a woman’s menstrual cycle. Androgens change the chemical makeup of skin oil, making it thicker and more likely to clog pores, which leads to acne and as a result of producing more melanin - hyperpigmentation.
