Common Sense And Anti-Ageing Skincare

When it comes to skincare, all we really want to know is what works, how much it costs and where we can buy it. So why do so many of us feel overwhelmed by the choice of products and often confusing, not to mention conflicting, advice? It's one of the reasons why sales of skincare are not as strong as they were - and why women are choosing to stick with what they know works rather than investing in gimmicky 'miracle creams' that promise the earth and don't deliver.

Detoxifying And Purifying Frame® Cleansers

A perfect skin is not only a joy for the eyes. It is also a synonym of health and wellness! Skin imperfections, such as a shiny and/or fat skin, are caused by excess sebum, stress or dehydration, and can be healed with regular treatments that aim at constantly cleansing and moisturising your skin, favoring perspiration and nourishment. Every day our skin is exposed to countless external stressors - smoke, fumes and UVA/UVB rays.

SKIN PIGMENTATION & HYPERPIGMENTATION 

Skin pigmentation disorders affect the colour and tone of the skin. In our body we have pigment called melanin which decides the colour of our skin, hair and eyes.

Pigmentation problems include: Uneven skin tone; Freckles; Sun spots; Liver spots and Age spots.

ARE WRINKLES THE FIRST SIGNS OF AGEING ?

Wrinkles could be one of the first signs of aging among many other things. Aging is a process which is eventual, and gradual and the changes that you go through are totally random until you realize that you are getting old.

The most common thing at a certain age that you would go through are wrinkles and skin that is lacking of collagen and several other things that it should have, but now it doesn't.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE “BLACK DON’T CRACK” STEREOTYPE

Looking at celebrities like Pharrell Williams (42), Naomi Campbell (45), Idris Elba (43), and Will Smith (47), all of whom are aging without hard lines or wrinkles, I wanted to find out if these were just instances of incredible genes or if there was some truth to the pleasant stereotype about black folks and their skin. All signs point to true. "It's due to the amount of collagen and melanin in the skin," says skin specialist and aesthetician Bianca Estelle.

THE IMPORTANCE OF LIP MOISTURIZERS

At this point, you might be asking yourself whether you really need a lip moisturizer at all. The answer to that question has to do with the unique nature of lips. For one thing, the skin on your lips is very thin. The blood supply is very close to the surface, which is why lips appear pink or red. In addition, your lips don't contain any oil glands, so they don't produce any natural oils like the rest of your skin does. As a result, lips tend to become dehydrated and chapped more quickly than the rest of your skin would. To make matters worse, you might think you're adding moisture when you lick your dry lips, but the relief is only temporary.

HOW TO GET RID OF BLACKHEADS & WHITEHEADS

People are unclear how to fight against blackheads and whiteheads. Every product claims they eliminate blackheads and whiteheads. The truth is blackheads and whiteheads are hard to accept they are hard to get rid of. It is hard to win the battle against our clogged pores. Normal working pores produce a normal amount of oil (sebum) that is easily distributed through the pore to the surface of the skin forming a protective barrier. When a regular amount of oil is produced, it effortlessly moves through the pore and out onto the surface of skin, where it melts into a film that forms a protective barrier over the face.

IS VEGAN TESTING THE LATEST STEP TOWARDS CRUELTY-FREE BEAUTY ? 

The Cosmetics Business Regulatory Summit 2018 addressed the latest in regulatory and testing for animal-friendly cosmetics. While all cosmetic products sold in Europe are theoretically cruelty-free, there is still one big snarl of red tape for animal rights NGOs. The European cosmetics industry must not only comply with the cosmetics animal testing and marketing bans (under the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009/EC), it must also meet the terms of REACH, the EU regulation that requires any company wanting to market a particular chemical substance to register said chemical.

HOW TO COMBAT THE MAJOR CAUSES OF AGEING

We all know that time can take its toll on our skin. Fine lines appear, skin's moisture retention decreases, blotches appear, and skin just doesn't bounce back like it used to. We're going to take an in depth look on why that happens and how to slow down that process. Many people don't know this, but the first casue of accelerated aging is caused by the iron found in our tap water. The iron in our tap water that we use on a daily basis creates damaging oxidation reactions with our skin. The second cause of accelerated aging is free radicals that attack our skin cells. And, finally, the most well known cause of aging is the damaged by sun.

DO YOU REALLY NEED TO WEAR A MOISTURIZER ?

Not everyone needs or should use a moisturizer, especially women with oily, combination, or acne-prone skin. But what if you just can't part with your favorite day and night creams? What should you be looking for when shopping for a moisturizer? A good moisturizer should contain emollients (essential for making skin not feel dry), water-binding agents (ingredients that attract water to the skin and help keep it there), anti-irritants and antioxidants.

HOW TO EXFOLIATE DEAD SKIN CELLS

Exfoliating dead skin cells is one of the simplest ways to achieve the fresh and healthy glow of new skin.

WHY IS SUN PROTECTION SO IMPORTANT FOR YOUR SKIN ? 

The neck and décolleté are areas that receive almost as much sun exposure as the face and hands.

For sure most of you have been in Rome, Venice or Florence. While this triumvirate of tourist destinations is a must-do for any first-time visitor to Italy, many of the country’s greatest charms can only be experienced in small Italian villages—places where you can slip away from the crowds, wander down deserted cobblestone lanes, and get a first-hand look at how the locals live. We are going to present you here a “secret village” called Castelluccio Superiore that is an Italian town of only 797 inhabitants located in Basilicata, in the province of Potenza.

CAVIAR IS ALWAYS A PRODUCT OF CRUELTY AND DEATH !

These last twenty years, cosmetic products designated as being “cruelty-free” have been gaining popularity. As a matter of fact, consumers tend to be more and more eco-conscious and look for products that are environmental and animal-friendly. At the European scale, this translates into the implementation of several laws on the matter. A stomach-turning video highlighting the gruesome way in which eggs are taken out of fish for caviar is making the rounds on the internet. As workers pull fistfuls of eggs from the insides of these sturgeons—the fish whose eggs are most commonly sold as caviar—it immediately becomes clear that there’s nothing luxurious about this vile food.

THE EFFICACY OF AIRLESS DISPENSERS

An airless package, whether it is a bottle, jar, or tube, typically includes an airless pump dispensing system that offers the benefits of ease of use and precise dosing. Airless packages are also crucial in preserving air-sensitive formulations. The airless bottle is a great packaging choice, as it provides optimum formula protection and shelf-stability while reducing the need for excessive chemical preservation. With each pump, the piston rises and pushes the product upward, creating a vacuum as the product is dispensed.

It is increasingly apparent that this collective set of micro-organisms contributes genetic diversity, modulates disease, influences metabolic processes, and is essential for immunity. The human microbiome is also dynamic, and changes associated with health and disease have been described and mechanistically investigated.

WHAT IS THE HYALURONIC ACID AND HOW DOES WORK

Hyaluronic acid probably isn’t what you think it is. After all, when you hear the word “acid” in the context of skin care, you think of products that chemically slough off skin, leaving you raw and red before you see any sign of their anti-aging benefits. Hyaluronic acid is different. Think of it as the kinder, gentler, more nourishing cousin. Yes, it will turn back the clock, but it won’t break down your skin. Hyaluronic acid plumps it up by restoring your skin’s moisture barrier — giving you a youthful complexion in the process.

IDENTIFYING YOUR SKYN TYPE  & CHARACTERISTICS

Your biological age does not always correspond to your skin's age. You can be 30 years old but look 40, or 50 years old but not seem any older than 35. It all depends on what condition your skin is in and how you care for and nourish your skin daily.  First of all, it is important that you recognise the external signs of skin ageing in order to be able to counter them effectively. The skin has a natural protective barrier which keeps it healthy, locking in moisture and keeping out harmful irritants, like aggressive ingredients and allergens.

MAKE COOKING AT HOME PART OF YOUR LIFESTYLE

Most health problems today are primarily a result of indiscretion: most illnesses are self-inflicted. Not always of course, but it is predominantly the case we are at fault, and we could have done much better. Nutrition is a big part of it. What we put into our body matters a lot more than you may think. Food is more than just fuel. However, even on that note, think about it this way. If you owned a luxury car like a Bentley or a Ferrari, would you opt for a "low-grade" fuel? You need to treat yourself as you deserve, and it is the very best. Not only should you eat well, but you need to cook a majority of the time also. Do both at once...

CAN CAVIAR CREAMS REALLY MAKE YOU AGE BACKWARDS ?

If you’ve ever asked “Is hypnosis real?” or “Are saunas healthy?” here’s a critical look at the evidence for and against five much-debated alternative remedies. Gone are the days of popping a pill for everything that ails you. When Americans fall ill today, roughly a third of adults, and 12 percent of children, are turning to non-conventional therapies, mostly with origins outside of Western societies. Think meditation, naturopathy, acupuncture, and hypnosis.
