Collagen is a protein produced in the body that connects, supports, and helps give firmness and strength to the body’s tissues.
By the time we reach our 30th birthday, we will start to lose 1% of collagen with each subsequent birthday. Collagen production slows as we age, which impacts the skin’s ability to repair itself, triggering a loss of elasticity.
Because of collagen’s role in firmer, taut skin, many skin aging products include ingredients that help stimulate collagen production.
Hear this loud and clear: tanning is never good for skin!
Baking in the sun to clear breakouts can worsen breakouts and intensify your chances of long-term scarring and hyperpigmentation (dark spots). They may clear momentarily, but there is an increase in cells when the skin is exposed to UV and this further clogs follicle openings.
Sensitized skin exhibits the same symptoms and triggers as sensitive skin, so it’s hard to distinguish between the two.
Sensitive skin is genetically determined and more commonly seen in those of Northern European ancestry. It could be caused by higher levels of histamine in the body and the lower amount of pigment and thinner epidermal layer which provides a less than optimum natural defense barrier against potentially irritating ingredients.
Sensitized skin can affect anyone of any age, skin condition and any race who has been exposed to environmental assault, chemicals, or product ingredients.
Only your professional skin therapist can determine if exfoliation is right for your skin condition through a complete Face Mapping skin analysis.
More than likely, gentle exfoliation will be beneficial to the health of skin.
Whiteheads and blackheads are considered non-inflammatory lesions when discussing the various stages of breakouts.
Speak with your professional skin therapist about a customized regimen to help control the signs of skin aging. A blackhead is a clogged follicle opening containing oil and dead cells.
Second, blackheads are not a sign of dirty, or unclean, skin.
Blackheads are blocked follicles that have an opening to the skin’s surface, making them exposed to air, triggering oxidization which makes it change in color (think how an apple turns brown after it’s been cut/exposed to oxygen).
A whitehead, also known as a closed comedone, is not open and has barely any or no exposure to air. Because air cannot reach the follicle, the debris inside the pore does not oxidize and change color.
