Healthy glowing skin is something most people hope for, but if the shine is from an excessive secretion of oil, it can cause severe frustration. Oily skin is often caused by hormonal changes and over-active sebaceous glands that produce excessive sebum.
How to Manage:Treating oily skin begins with a skin care regime that looks at controlling sebum production. Kaolin is a useful active ingredient to look out for when sourcing for suitable skincare products to treat oily skin. This mineral can be found in Beauty Face’s Anti-Bac Creamy Mask and is a highly absorbent ingredient that helps remove oils and dirt from the skin, without drying the skin.
Other than Kaolin, some dermatologists also believe that the presence of Salicylic Acid can also help with controlling excessive sebum production.
Hydration is also an important step of the skin care regime not to be missed even for oily skin types. The key is to find a suitable light moisturizer for your skin, and be careful to stay away from products that can be overly harsh or causing skin to dry out unnecessarily.
The common misconception of acne is that it is a youth related skin condition. However, for many, it can be a life-long skin ailment. Acne occurs when pores on the skin become clogged, trapping oil produced by the sebaceous glands. Bacteria grow in these clogged pores and can eventually lead to an acne outbreak.
The more irritated the skin feels, the more likely you will experience a break out. Other factors like stress, hormonal cycle and damaging environmental exposure can also worsen the condition of an acne outbreak.
How to manage: Do not attempt to burst the pimples as you may worsen the situation leading to greater swelling and redness. Using un-sanitized fingers to squeeze pimples can lead to further bacteria build-up and infection.
When it comes to acne skincare, always go for mild, soothing formulas that do not further irritate the skin. Cleansing the skin is very important and should be done twice daily. Choose a gentle cleanser like the Beauty Face Anti-Bac Cleansing Milk which helps cleanse the skin thoroughly and control the cultivation of acne related bacteria.
Healthy skin is coated with a layer of natural lipids that help lock in moisture, keeping the skin soft and hydrated. However, due to damaging environmental factors or the use of unsuitable products, this layer of natural lipids can be stripped away, leaving the skin unprotected, resulting in dry irritable skin.
In most cases, dry skin can be noticeable and cause difficulties when applying makeup. If left untreated, dry skin may also lead to cases of dermatitis, which is an inflammation of the skin. Fortunately, dry skin can be easily improved with the right type of skincare.
How to manage:Take care to avoid skincare products with alcohol or added scents. Keep an eye out for products containing Sodium Hyaluronate listed as an active ingredient as Sodium Hyaluronate is well known for its ability to penetrate skin and retain moisture. This ingredient can be found in great skincare products like the Beauty Face 8 Hours Plus Moisture which provides immediate hydration to the skin without leaving any sticky or oilyfeel.
Skin brightening and having an even skin tone is one of the top desired skincare outcomes. Special cells in the skin produce a pigment called melanin, which is responsible for the color of the skin. If the skin produces an excess of melanin, it will cause the skin to appear darker, or in some cases, create spots of darker skin.
How to manage: Licorice root extract is an effective active ingredient for skin lightening. It works directly to decrease the amount of melanin produced, resulting in a more luminous complexion.
Exfoliation is another important step in the journey towards radiant skin. Through the process of removing dead cells and impurities, the cell turnover rate will be improved. Products like the Beauty Face Magic Exfoliator allows for the skin to be thoroughly oxygenated and helps the skin regain natural radiance.
Another essential skincare routine to achieve a whiter, brighter skin tone would be sun protection. Beauty Face has specially formulated a 3 Plus 1 Sun Cream with SPF 40 to provide an all-in-one make-up base, foundation and sun cream with whitening effects to protect your skin against the negative effects of sun exposure.
Sensitive skin tends to turn itchy or inflamed when exposed to certain chemicals or makeup that irritates the skin cells. Inflammation is natural reaction to these irritants since it is an indirect result of the natural defense system of the skin.
How to manage: When faced with such a skin type, it is important to source for special sensitive skincare products that are gentle and soothing. Products should be free from fragrances, surfactants, alcohol and any other unnecessary additives that may irritate the skin. A product that can relieve the skin of irritation would be the Beauty Face Sensitive Skin Serum.
To further relieve the symptoms of sensitive skin, harsh cleansers should be avoided and skin should be regularly moisturized. Cleansing milks like the Beauty Face Sensitive Skin Cleansing Milk allow for a gentle soothing wash, and are suitable for most sensitive skin types. Moisturizers with Softening Polysaccharide help to calm inflamed skin while helping it to protect itself.
Wrinkles and sagging skin are the first telltale signs of aging. As we age, the epidermis layer of our skin thins, causing it to appear more loose and creased. Sun exposure can also lead to the loss of elasticity, decrease in skin renewal and increase pigmentation. The skin’s strength and elasticity are also weakened due to the damage to the skin’s connective tissues.
How to manage: In order to prevent and treat aging skin, sun protection and hydration arecrucial.
Besides Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres is also an effective active ingredient for treating aging skin. Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres are able to penetrate deep into the skin and rapidly rehydrate it.
Beauty Face leverages on the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres in the concoction of the Wrinkle Filler Serum and Booster Gel, creating an effective solution to smoothing out wrinkles and moisturizing the upper layers of the skin.
