Stay Ahead of Back To School Acne

 

Back to school bagFall…time for back to school, for getting back into a routine. The anticipation, excitement and, in some cases, anxiety can wreak havoc on your complexion. If those hot summer days haven’t brought you a sweat-induced breakout yet (lucky you), then the combined stress of a revved-up fall schedule could easily show up on your face. The good news is that while acne is not curable, it is treatable and controllable.

Use these easy tips to stay ahead of back-to-school acne and score flawless-looking skin:

  • Wash your face both before bed and in the morning. A whole day’s worth of dirt, oil and even environmental pollution can coat your face by the end of the day. Likewise, hair products can rub off onto your pillow, and from there end up on your cheeks, so it’s important to start clean every morning.

Essentials For Your Workout Bag

When you step up your workout goals this summer, remember to set the bar just as high for your skincare routine. Follow this workout mantra for your skin: cleanse, sweat, cleanse. Essentials for your Workout Bag are:

FACIAL WIPES

First things first, don’t sweat the makeup. Wearing foundation or powder already creates a barrier on skin. Combine that with perspiration and oil from exercise, and you’re looking at the perfect recipe for blocked pores and blackheads. If you don’t have time for a complete pre-workout face wash at the sink, use facial cleansing cloths to remove makeup. Read the rest of this entry

Occasional Sensitivity?

Occasional Sensitivity

Do you suffer from occasional Sensitivity?

If from time to time, you experience redness or chapped skin,  you may have mildly sensitive skin. Possible environmental triggers of sensitivity include: cold weather, heat, wind, and sun exposure; razor burn; skincare products and in-office cosmetic procedures. Trying to determine if there is a correlation between your occasional flare-ups and one of these factors is your first step in prevention.

Itchy or tight skin? Your products or cleansers might be too drying, which can strip the skin’s natural moisture barrier and cause sensitivity. Read the rest of this entry

The ABCs of Skincare

When you hear the words skin and acid together, you may think of intense peeling or red-looking skin, but there’s a brighter side to this skincare story. Some acids are touted in the dermatology world for their hydrating, lightening and rejuvenating effects on skin—leaving a dull, complexion visibly transformed. Other acids are the first line of defense against acne and signs of aging. Learning the ABC’s of skincare acids can help you find the right products for your specific skin type or condition.

Check out our list of common skin concerns and skin-friendly solutions with potent acid ingredients: Read the rest of this entry

The Truth About Sunscreen

The truth about sunscreen

Our modern-day “love affair” with the suntan began nearly a century ago as a status symbol of leisure, wealth and beauty. But today, with so much knowledge of the sun’s power to harm and prematurely age skin, we’re turning to safer, sunless alternatives, and embracing the ultimate answer to this beauty paradox—protection and prevention with broad spectrum sunscreen.  The Truth about sunscreen:

Not all sunscreens are created equal? Understanding how they work is key. Read the rest of this entry

Does Fair Skin Mean Sensitive Skin?

Sensitive Skin

 

Does Fair Skin Mean Sensitive Skin? While all ethnicities are more or less equally prone to sensitive skin, having light-toned skin does not mean that you are destined to suffer from sensitivity. As Dr. Katie Rodan notes, “Despite all the studies, the medical and scientific communities’ ability to predict who will be sensitive to what is still not very good.” While genetics do play a role, there are many other external factors that can trigger sensitive skin.

Summer Skincare On The Go

Pool.

 

It’s official, summer is here and the days are heating up. Don’t forget to factor in how high temps and outdoor activities can impact your skin. Your summer skincare routine is important.

Play smart, cover up. Wearing sunscreen is crucial, but it’s just the first step of safeguarding skin from the sun’s UVA/UVB rays. Whether you’re cruising around the golf course or relaxing at a barbeque, protect your skin with a long-sleeve layer (bonus points for fabrics with built-in SPF). Darker, tightly woven fabrics Read the rest of this entry

The Risk Of Combining Skincare Ingredients

Mixology

 

Mixology may be a fun way to find your signature cocktail, but combining too many different skincare ingredients is likely to produce a counter effect. Plus, if you’re not careful, product mixing can actually aggravate, rather than improve, your skin.

What’s the trick to multi-product success? Start by familiarizing yourself with the active and cosmetic ingredients in your skincare routine so you can recognize (and avoid) the most common mixology problems:

1) A lose-lose situation. Sometimes the ingredients in different products counteract each other. This means you won’t see the intended benefits of either product on your skin (for example, alpha hydroxy acids cancel the benefits of vitamin C-based products).

2) Tandem irritation strikes. In other words, your skin is fine when the products are used independently, but use them together, and hello skin irritation. This is common when combining multiple products with anti-aging benefits (think: retinol and alpha hydroxy acids).

3) Beware of product incompatibility. This is easy to test for by rubbing your face after the second product has dried. If it peels, balls, or curdles, you’re looking at products that don’t mix.

These ingredients simply don’t play nice with each other:

Retinol.* This derivative of vitamin A is a must-have when it comes to visibly improving skin texture and minimizing the appearance of pores. However, dryness, redness or irritation can result from mixing retinol with glycolic acids, alpha hydroxy acids (in many wrinkle-minimizing products), or salicylic acids (in acne treatments). It’s no surprise then, retinol and the acne-fighting ingredient benzoyl peroxide actually deactivate each other.

Citric acid. Commonly found in moisturizers, this effective ingredient is destined to be a loner. Citric acid often causes irritation if layered with other products.

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and vitamin CThese acid-based ingredients actually destabilize each other, leaving the antioxidants ineffective, so choose products with one or the other—but don’t combine them or you risk redness, peeling and irritation. Also steer clear of retinol if you’re using either of these acids.

Word to the skin-wise: Get to know the ingredients that work in harmony with your skin (and with each other)—but leave the mixology to dermatologists. Stick to a collection of products clinically designed to work together, and your skin will thank you.  

Steam Is Good For Opening Pores?

Steam is Good for Opening Pores

Fact Vs Fiction: Steam is good for opening pores. This is purely Fiction! A steam bath may feel refreshing and help you relieve tension, but it won’t magically open your pores. Just like cold water won’t make pores close. The simple explanation is that pores lack muscles around their openings. And while dreaming of a hot shower might be the one thing that lures you out of bed in the winter, it’s better to go easy on your skin and opt for a quick, more tepid shower.
