When a hyperpigmented area is exposed to UV light, more melanin production is triggered on a cellular level, causing further darkening.
Ironically, melanin production and further darkening of skin is just your skin trying to protect itself from UV light. But this can cause the strictest of brightening regimens to fail to produce results. Daily application of a minimum of SPF30 will help shield skin from UV light to control melanin production on a cellular level.
Absolutely not. Sun exposure is never good for skin.
While it may seem the sun provides a temporary “drying” effect, sebaceous glands will fire into overdrive to help replace lost oil. The result: more oil on the surface than before. Shielding skin from sun exposure with an oil-controlling SPF such as Oil Free Matte Block SPF20 will actually help control oil production and maintain a matte finish.
Following a prescribed regimen that helps control oil production will help minimize your risk for breakouts.
While exfoliation is recommended for almost every skin condition, there are times when you shouldn’t exfoliate.
Skin that has been recently sunburned or waxed should not be exfoliated. Never exfoliate over open wounds or cuts.
If you have a sensitized skin condition, exfoliation may further compromise your skin’s natural protective barrier. It is important to follow the advice of your skin therapist when exfoliation is a part of your professional treatment and home care regimen.
Simply put, shaving is a form of mechanical exfoliation.
Shaving triggers a high level of visible irritation on the skin and can serve as a form of over-exfoliation and lead to a compromised lipid barrier. When the skin’s lipid barrier is compromised, there is an increase in moisture loss, which leads to dry, scaly, cracked, sensitized skin.
Skin dryness can increase skin’s susceptibility to a various number of shaving concerns, including Pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hairs and razor bumps), razor burn and sensitivity.
Yes, your skin could become less oily over time.
Generally as you get older the oil glands shrink and produce less oil, so yes, your skin may become less oily.
