Skin Care Tip

Do you know make up can cause unwanted acne?

Yes it can. You may apply makeup, but you should do it with caution. Acne can be caused by some cosmetics. Acne cosmetica is a form of acne that develops because of make up. Even ladies who do not have acne in the first place might acquire acne cosmetica as a result of applying cosmetics. The cheekbones, chin, and forehead are the most common locations for these types of pimples. Many women also get whiteheads that slightly protrude from their skin. If you get outbreaks around your lips, it's possible that your lipstick or lip balm is to blame. A basic makeup product like foundation can lead to acne breakouts, rashes and sensitive skin.

Cosmetic acne might take a long time to appear and might not happen right away. Sometimes, even the mildest of makeup products can act up and leave you with an unwanted acne breakout. Here are some makeup rules to keep acne away! For starters, get the right foundation. It should be oil-free and non-comedogenic. Ingredients like paraffin, wax, petrolatum, mineral oils, and others should be avoided. All of these components can clog your pores, trapping dust and grime inside. This causes irritation, which can contribute to skin acne. Second, prep your skin before applying any makeup. When cleansing your face, make sure your hands are clean. After that, apply a light, water-based moisturizing moisturizer that can also be used as a makeup primer. The next step is to apply sunscreen. If you have acne-prone skin, you should use a gel sunscreen. It is so important to keep your makeup brushes clean as well as leftover residue from previous makeup can lead to adding bacteria back to the face. Lastly, washing your face after makeup usage is key.

So enjoy your make up, you deserve it.

Anti-Aging Tip

Less stress causes less wrinkles and a healthier you!

It's not too late to start caring for your skin if you've never done so before. Even if you don't notice it, your skin starts to age in your mid-20s. It's possible that your favorite goods won't operate as well as they used to. These changes are caused by your genes, everyday routines, and the sunlight. Wrinkles are unavoidable over the years. We are all heading to that destination. We may try a variety of anti-aging creams and potions in the hopes that they'll help—but the truth is, it's not a question of if, but when your skin will wrinkle. But what happens when wrinkles appear as a result of stress? Stress is, for the most part, unavoidable. We don't get enough sleep when we're stressed, we don't exercise as much as we should, and our diet usually suffers too. All of these variables might have a bad impact not just on our health, but also on our skin. Avoiding stress is easier said than done. Here are some expert tips for easing up the process.

  1. Create a stress-relieving habit in your everyday life, which could include exercising, meditating, or journaling.
  2. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated, both on the outside and inside.
  3. Change your lifestyle by eating a well-balanced diet, limiting alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, and practicing breathing techniques on a regular basis.
  4. Aim for eight hours of sleep each night, as this is when the body repairs skin damage.
  5. Use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 (or sunscreen-containing products) every day, especially on your face.
  6. Collagen stimulation treatments can help to prevent fine lines as well as soften them if they already exist. Microneedling (with PRP for an added bonus), chemical peels, and lasers all help.

Plastic Surgery Tip

Should you get a face lift or laser skin tightening?

In the case of laser skin tightening vs facelift, there isn't truly one that is better than the other because each is very different. While they both are approaches to facial rejuvenation, each technique is used for a very different reason. A facelift will lift sagging skin and muscle while removing excess fat. Laser skin tightening treatments boost the production of new collagen in your face. The laser warms the collagen beneath your skin's surface, tightening it. Some patients may require both.

Again, a facelift is very different from laser skin tightening because it is a surgical procedure. A facelift consists of a cheek, jaw and neck lift all in one because it re-supports the cheek, jawline and neck. Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive nonsurgical treatment. It's critical to note that these aren't competitive procedures. In comparison to laser skin tightening, facelift surgery will provide you the best results and substantially minimize obvious indications of aging. Although laser skin tightening is less intrusive, a facelift provides the best outcomes in terms of appearance. Laser skin treatments, especially those that alleviate fine wrinkles, pigmentation, tiny veins, and red spots, are a great addition to any facelift procedure.
