8533338_sNowadays, we all are overwhelmed with skin care news, beauty tips from multi media channels and are often confused by those claims, not sure which ones are facts, which ones are just myths. Here are four of the most common misconceptions about natural ingredients that many of us believe otherwise.

1. You can break out the blender to make your own face cream. Technically you can, but anti-aging skin care is more scientific aging skin care is more scientific than mixing avocado and olive oil together.

Isotretinoin: The safety warnings

8129636_sIf salicylic acid is like gentle sandpaper for your skin, isotretinoin (commonly referred to by the now-defunct brand name Accutane) is paint stripper. It gets the job done when nothing else will, and it comes with plenty of safety warnings.

Over the last three decades, stricter regulatory policies have been put in place, and while isotretinoin is a serious drug that requires close monitoring, it’s an effective medication for severe acne. If you’re confused, you’re not alone. Here’s how it breaks down.

PROS:
● Isotretinoin is an internal retinoid, which is a vitamin A derivative, and it is the only drug that addresses all four major acne causing factors. It reduces skin oil production, improves cell turnover inside pores, decreases the naturally occurring P, acnes bacteria on the skin, and calms inflammation. Continue reading

Skin Care Benefits of Sulfur

How can Sulfur Skin Care Products Help to Fight Acne?

6172169_sSulfur is usually not the first thing that comes to mind when people think of effective acne treatments, but this odorous mineral is actually one of the oldest acne treatments known to man. In ancient times, sulfur was applied directly to the skin to treat skin and scalp problems like dandruff, dermatitis, warts and rosacea.

In today’s competitive beauty market, the use of sulfur to treat acne and other skin conditions have evolved into something more sophisticated and better smelling. Sulfur acne treatment products now include soaps, face masks and creams, which is very different from what our ancestors used generations ago. Continue reading

Benefits of chemical peels

22674761_sA chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Using chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. Chemical peels can help improve acne or acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin and scaly patches and irregular skin pigmentation.

1/ Peels make your cosmetics work better:
The enzyme in natural ingredients will take away dead cells and move new cells up to the top. Peels also increase collagen production and help the skin make more hyaluronic acid to look younger. Your nourishing serum or cream will be absorbed better after peeling. Continue reading

Protect, prevent and lighten dark spots

13089410_sLose years in minutes! Fade dark spots for good with the following advice broken down into two straightforward steps:

1/Protect and prevent: First and foremost, your best line of defense is to prevent age spots in the first place. So sunscreen is crucial. “If you’re prone to spots, even a small amount of sun exposure can bring them on,” says Valerie Callender, MD, an associate professor of dermatology at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, DC. Same goes for melasma: No matter what you do to remedy it, those blotches will recur if you’re not careful. “I’ve seen patients spend hundreds of dollars on melasma treatments then they go to the beach without sunscreen, and boom, it’s back,” she adds.

Salicylic Acid

 21378586_sSalicylic Acid is also known as Betahydroxy acid or BHA. It is derived from a bitter powder that comes from the bark of a willow tree. It is a “keratolytic” (keratin-dissolving) which is the technical term for exfoliating ingredient. It actually can penetrate into the pore to dissolve dead skin cell build up and encourages the shedding of the top layer of skin which prevents the pores from becoming congested.

Topical salicylic acid treats mild acne by reducing swelling and redness and unplugging blocked skin pores to allow pimples to shrink. It does not have any effect on the acne bacteria in the pores or the excess production of sebum that cause acne. It must be used continuously, just like benzoyl peroxide, because its effects stop when you stop using it — pores clog up again and the acne returns.  Continue reading

4 ways to improve your skin care

33852031_sGood ingredients cannot make good meals, skin care also needs techniques like cooking skills. Here are some advice to make the best of your skin care process. 

1. Apply the right amount: Many people use too much cream. In reality, you just need a dime size amount of cream for the whole face and half of that for your eye area. For oil and serum, just take two pumps. You just need a pea size drop for retinol cream. Using too much cream may irritate your skin and waste money too. Continue reading
