Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to skin when it’s shaved?

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.

What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is the result of an overproduction of melanin.

Melanin is what gives skin and hair its color, and amongst other benefits, helps protect skin against damaging UV light and absorbs heat from the sun. However, an overproduction of melanin leads to a mottled, uneven skin tone. Overproduction of melanin is stimulated by excessive sun exposure, hormones, or scarring.

1) Sun exposure: When skin is repeatedly exposed to UV light, sun damage occurs. Brown spots appear as a result of too much melanin being produced to help protect skin from UV light.

2) Hormones: Melasma is hormone-related hyperpigmentation caused by increased hormone stimulation. It is most commonly experienced by women who are pregnant (which is why it’s also known as the “mask of pregnancy”) or taking contraceptives, but can also be a product of reactions to cosmetics or medications.

3) Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation: This is a darkening of skin that’s the result of acne scarring or skin injury due to inflammatory response in skin. The cells associated with melanin production are closely linked with the skin immune system cells; meaning you can’t stimulate one without stimulating the other.

Why is collagen important in skin?

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.

My skin looks great after completing my skin care regimen in the morning, but by mid-day, I have a slick, shiny surface. How can I stop this?

Making a few adjustments to your skin care regimen can help control oil production from morning until night.

Create a “matte kit” that fits conveniently in your purse or backpack for mid-day touch-ups. Your kit should include oil-free lotions or sunscreens containing MICROSPONGE® technology that helps soak up excess oil. It can also contain wipes loaded with Salicylic Acid (not alcohol!) to help degrease skin, help prohibit acne bacteria, and keep skin feeling fresh.

I’ve never had dry skin before. Why do I have it now?

The natural process of aging, environment, and lifestyle choices can impact your skin’s level of dryness.

As we age, the activity of sebaceous (oil) glands begins to slow, causing the skin’s natural hydrators to decline over the years. Aging may also cause blood flow to skin to decrease, causing a drop in oil production.

Cold winds and cold temperatures can dry out skin, which is why you may notice “seasonal” dryness. This also applies to air conditioning and forced air heating. Warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.

Prolonged exposure to sun can also cause water evaporation from skin and contribute to dryness.
