Know your Sunscreen Series Part 2

Hi Everyone after my first blog post on sunscreens here I’m continuing the topic of sunscreens, If you haven’t read my previous blog stop right here and click the link below.

KNOW YOUR SUNSCREENS BETTER!! Part 1

Now that you have read and understood how were sunscreens made and to read what the SPF numbers stand for, Lets take it further on by knowing what the values of PA +++++ OR Boot Star Rating ***** mean on your Sunscreen tubes.

The UVB protection rating which signifies the percentage of protection the sunscreen gives from the UVB rays is widely known in two types of ratings in this concept the European rating which is the Boot Star ***** symbolised & the Japanese rating which is the PA+++++ Rating. Each of these Stars * or Plus + Symbols mean 20% protection from UVB, so if there are 5 Stars there is a whole 100% protection from UVB.

Now that we have this part of the concept cleared. It’s time to discuss my favourite Sunscreens available in the market today.

  1. Cheryl’s DermaShade SPF 30+
    Boot Star Rating of 5 Stars
    DermaShade comes in 2 different packagings 30+ for Normal to Oily Skin & the 50+ for Dry Skin type.

KNOW YOUR SUNSCREENS BETTER!! Part 1

Sunscreens have been in the market since the world was made, okay a bit of exaggeration there but sunscreens have been a boon to society since the early ages when greeks used olive oil as a sun protection. Egyptians used Rice & Jasmine Plant extracts. Synthetic Sunscreens today have also been quite in for a few thousand years. The biggest hit at that time was a sunscreen with SPF 2. (Whoa!) We’ve come a long way haven’t we? In the last decades alone we have come up with Broad Spectrums, Water Resistant etc.

So coming back to understanding the power of your sunscreen. Lets start with the most common 3 most used words “SPF” which stands for Sun protection Factor. We all talk about how important it is and now moisturisers and foundations also have SPF in it. but what does it do and what are all the numbers SPF15, SPF30, SPF50 and so on mean?

We have 2 important Ultraviolet rays that come in contact with our skin that is the UVA and the UVB. SPF means the protection we receive from UVA. So mathematically speaking SPF 1 is equals to 15 mins of protection. which means SPF 15 would be 225mins of protection. SPF 30 is equals to 450mins of protection.

If you enjoyed this blog post please click the like button and comment on your favourite SPF. Wait for the next part on Sunscreens where I talk about the protection from UVB and my top 5 favourite sunscreens. See you soon. 😉

Favourite Mask Combinations

Hey Everybody,
I been so busy lately managing my businesses and I’m struggling to get things going but in the mean time, I have a rule that once or twice every week I have a small pamper session at home after work. It does’nt consist of a lot as I’m really tired when I get back from work. So basically I’ll make some hot mocha put on an episode of how I met your mother or grey’s anatomy or castle or white collar depending on what my mood is like. Then I would put on a face mask and paint my nails while watching an episode or two or maybe three 😛  sitting like a bean bag on the couch. LOL!

So Yesterday I had one of these pamper sessions and I realised I do a lot of multi-masking and it would be fun to share what my favourite mask combinations are.

Combination 1  For Dull, Oily and Congested Skin Days

I like to use the Origins Charcoal Mask on my nose to cleanse pores I sometimes switch that with the Glam Glow Clearing Mask and pull the white heads out, and the Glam Glow Flashmud Brightening Mask (Orange) on the rest of my face, It works like a exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and instantly make my skin feel smoother.

Eye Treatment

For the days I feel a bit more lazy to put on a mask and wash it off. And My eyes feel tired and baggy. I use the Sephora Green Tea Eye mask. Green tea is an antioxidant that quickly revives your tired looking eyes and also gives it a lift. This mask is a sheet mask so application and removal is no problem #lazygirlsbestfriend 😀

or YOU CAN PAIR IT UP WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED MASKS TO DO MORE A FANCY MULTIMASKING!

Combination 3 – Sensitive and acne days

You know those days when your skin is so sensitive that a charcoal mask isn’t an option and it also has few papules (Red pus filled pimples). I use the Skeyndor Normalising Mask while dotting my face with the Mario Badescu drying lotion on the papules.

I know a lot of you guys love the nourishing masks I do too, when the weather is slightly chilled and my skin tends to go on the drier side so I’m listing a few of my favourite masks  that are more hydrating.

MAGICAL POTION FOR ACNE SKIN TYPES

MAGICAL POTION FOR ACNE SKIN TYPES

HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!! WELCOME TO MY BLOG!

You already know I’m going to go on and on about my absolute favourite product. Those of you have acne prone skin know exactly the boon that comes from an effective spot treatment.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is a lotion that is formulated with a lot of special Ingredients including salicylic acid, sulphur and alcohol. The reason why its special is because it has calamine, camphor and glycerin which will help the dried skin area to not get sensitive and soothe the skin, as some drying ingredients can take a toll on your skin’s health.

My love for it began when I went into mecca one day and saw the drying lotion also recommended on youtube by one of my favourite makeup Youtuber Jaclyn Hill, so immediately gave it a try as I was facing some terrible papular acne during the time.
Since then I noticed a visible change in my acne as I used quite regularly with my other skin care treatments.

i-004684-drying-lotion-1-940

So now How to use it?

Dip a cotton bud into the pink sand like ingredient in the bottom of the bottle. Remember never to shake the bottle and if you have let it all settle before you use it. Once you have the pink paste on your bud, apply it directly on the affected acne areas in a dotted pattern. Never double dip with the same cotton bud that would spread bacteria in and out of the bottle. Leave it overnight and you will notice a significant visual change in your acne prone skin.

All you need to know about chemical peels 2 (Specialised Ingredients)

This blog is a continuation of my previous blog on chemical peels, if you haven’t read it yet please click the link All you need to know about chemical peels (AHAs & BHA).

In my previous blog I spoke about the AHA and BHA peels, now lets talk about some specialised peels that are more advanced. Basically this blog will focus on Kojic Acid Peels, Jessner and TCA peels.

Specialised peels are either made with one typical solution or a combination of different peels. Jessners peel for example is a combination of 14% Resorsinol, 14% Lactic Acid, and 14% Salicylic Acid.

As seen in my previous blog lactic acid is an AHA, great for hydration, and is derived from sour milk, where as Salicylic Acid is a BHA that is made from willow bark extracts and has a key role in clearing black and white heads and purifying the skin of clogged pores. Resorsinol on the other hand is a benzenediol which helps in the treatment by fighting any infection. Only important caution with Jessners peel is to work only on a small area at a time as it is cardiotoxic.

TCA peels aka Trichloroacetic acid, it is also from the BHA group and is an excellent peel in the treatment of sun damaged skin or mature aged skin.

Kojic Acid is an ingredient that comes across many times in whitening products. Here Kojic Acid peels help in whitening and also treating Hyper pigmentation, Melasma etc. There are many creams that have kojic acid as a part of the ingredients for whitening and an overall even tone.

Many times peels work best when they are used from 3 – 6 sittings, once every 3 to 4 weeks. Sometimes it the period in between maybe shorter or longer depending on the strength of the peel and the skin’s ability to take it.

Please let me know if this information helps you and if you have any questions regarding your skin care please feel free to leave a comment below.

Please let me know if there is a peel that you absolutely love, I would love to know.

All you need to know about chemical peels (AHAs & BHA)

Acid Ingredients in products that your skin will thank you for.

Not everyone is aware of the acid ingredients in Chemical Peels. Many of them have beneficial roles in making the skin look healthy although there is one common role they all share is to peel the dead skin cells which block the skins surface by breaking the bonds between the cells of the skin. By this process there is a rise in the production of new and healthy cells, which makes the skin feel over all healthier.

Since a decade chemical peels have become the hot topic in skin care because of their instant results. What a lot of people don’t know is that every peel is different, from its ingredients to its percentages.

Lets clear a few main/common names in chemical peels. 

AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) & BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) are acids that come from organic sources.

Glycolic Acid – Derived from Sugarcanes

Lactic Acid – Derived from Sour Milk

Mallic Acid – Derived from Apples

Tartaric Acid – Derived from Grapes

Citric Acid – Derived from Citrus Fruits

Salicylic Acid – Derived from Willow Bark Extracts

The most common among these are

Glycolic Acid – Derived from Sugarcanes is great for ageing, mature, sun damaged skin.

Lactic Acid – Derived from Sour Milk, helps in hydrating dry skin while removing excess skin cells.

Salicylic acid – Derived from Willow Bark Extracts. This is a BHA, best for oily and acne skin types as it cleans pores by dissolving the dirt and debris.

Many of these peels are in your regular skin care products but only in very little percentages that would help your skin daily.

There are many other chemical peels in skin care which I will talk about in my next blog.

Please let me know if this little piece of information helps you and if you have any questions regarding your skin care please feel free to leave a comment below.

Please let me know if there is a peel that you absolutely love, I would love to know.

Anti-Ageing Series: The best secret to Anti-Ageing

Hey Everybody welcome to my Blog!

I’m so excited to share with you guys the three main ingredients that are required in every skin care regimen no matter what type of skin it is. Obviously I’m taking about Vitamin A, B and C. All of these three vitamins are not only important but are vital for the skin’s functioning and maintenance.

The only way topically to maintain a beautiful and youthful looking skin is to keep up the use of vitamin A, B, and C in your skin care regimen. Many products would have a mixture of different ingredients and I love it but the problem there is that there is a very low percentage of the vitamins in these products which does not help the skin at all.

vitamini-za-kozu

Vitamins A has many other names such as retinol, retinoic acid, retinoid, tretinoin. What it does is it helps the healthy cell growth from the basal layer of the skin by boosting the exfoliation of the flat, dead cells by this you get fresher, plumper looking skin also it helps improve the texture of the skin, brightens up the skin and fight age spots and ageing signs such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin B is an important and sometimes neglected vitamin in the skin care regimen as it builds the strength, hydrates and calm the skin. With the past few years I have been taking Oral vitamin A which did help a lot with my acne but did make my skin photosensitive and sensitive to other cosmetics. Using the Vitamin B serum I felt instant strengthening of my skin, my skin isn’t as sensitive and it feels great.

Vitamin C  is important part of skin care.It is filled with anti-oxidants that balance the skin’s free radicle damage. now not going too deep into scientific words free radicle damage is when atoms of the skin are un-stable as they lose there electrons to another atom and this leads them to steal an electron from another atom which leads into a domino effect. Practically this happens due to ageing, pollution, stress, hormones and all other things that depreciate the structure of the skin. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin C have extra electrons that they give to the unstable atoms which makes it very beneficial for the skin, making it look healthier, plumper. Vitamin C also helps with the production of collagen and helps reduce damage of harmful UV rays.

I love concentrated products of vitamins for my skin so I know what I’m putting on my skin rather than a pile of product with so many ingredients.

If you’ve liked my post please like & comment below what are you’re favourite products in topical vitamins, I’d love to try new things.

Top 5 Favourite Skin Care Essentials

IMG_1907_Fotor

We all have the skin care essentials we run to once we know our skin needs some help. I have listed down five of my skin care essentials that I need all the time.

  1. JOSIE MARAN: 100% Pure Argan Oil IMG_1914_FotorA bottle filled with 100% Pure Argan Oil. The thing about beauty oils becoming a trend is that its obviously the best for moisturising and it has the benefits of naturally derived sources. Argan oil by Josie Maran is one of the best argan oils in the market because of their process of deriving the oils by hand rather than using heat that would destroy the benefits in the oil. Even after being an oil it does not feel sticky or thick on the skin, It seeps into the skin and is readily absorbed into the skin. The best part about the argan oil is that you can start seeing and feeling improvement in your skin after a few days of use.
  1. Aspect: Multi B Plus Serum IMG_1912_Fotor

My doctor suggested me to start trying the Aspect Multi B Plus which is the Vitamin B serum for strengthening and nourishing my skin. With the past few years I have taking Oral vitamin A which did help a lot with my acne but did sensitise my skin to the sun and other cosmetics. Using the Vitamin B serum I felt instant strengthening of my skin, my skin isn’t as sensitive and it feels great.

  1. CLINIQUE: Anti-Blemish Solution Clarifying LotionIMG_1911_Fotor

I found this gem in my samples after shopping at clinique once and thought to give it a try. The solution is amazing for textured or problematic skin. I love the exfoliating pads and this has the same effect and is cheaper compared to exfoliating pads. I use it with a cotton pad everyday and night (if I don’t get lazy) and just allows other products to penetrate better and eaves my skin feeling baby soft.

  1. ASPECT: Active C Serum IMG_1913_Fotor

Vitamin C Serum : Aspect Active C serum. Vitamin C overall is important part of skin care that is sometimes neglected. Vitamin C is filled with anti-oxidants that balance the skin’s free radicle damage. now not going too deep into scientific words free radicle damage is when atoms of the skin are un-stabalized as they lose there electrons to another atom and this leads them to steal an electron from another atom which leads into a domino effect. Practically this happens due to ageing, pollution, stress, hormones and all other things that depreciate the structure of the skin. Anti-oxidants such as vitamin C have extra electrons that they give to the unstable atoms which makes it very beneficial for the skin, making it look healthier, plumper. Vitamin C also helps with the production of collagen and helps reduce damage of harmful UV rays.

  1. ORIGINS: Drink Up Intensive Overnight MaskIMG_1910_Fotor

Origin Drink Up Intensive overnight mask: For all the times you wish you could go to sleep using something and the next morning your skin feels hydrated and smoothe, this is the best best solution after your night time regimen. This mask has helped me in making my skin look hydrated, fresh and glowing. I have also noticed that my Make up looks so much better when I use this mask the night before as it hydrates the skin so the make up doesn’t sit on top and start flaking or looking cakey. Love this mask.

If you’ve liked my post please like & comment below what are you’re favourite skin care essential products, I’d love to try new things.

Cleansing Oils YAY or NAY?

The market is flooding with cleansing oils offering all kinds of cleansing oils calming, soothing, restoring, resurfacing but do they really work or are they just an expensive addition to your night time routine?

Lets clear the FAQs first

What is a cleansing oil? How does it work?

Cleansing oil is an OIL (DUHHH!!), yes but it is also made to cleanse in a way that it does not feel like the oil in your kitchen or where ever you keep oils other then your kitchen. 😛

Cleansing oils are designed to melt of all the make up and debris on your face additionally protecting your skin as it does not strip off the natural skin barrier and natural oils of the skin as a traditional cleanser would do.

How do you use it?

Take a few pumps on your hand and gently apply it all over your dry face, allow a minute or two for the oil to break down all your make up and debris. Massage it on your face. Now adding water on your palms keep massaging. You will notice the oil has now started foaming up or changing colour after which completely rinse the face with plain water.

The first time I came across a cleansing oil was in my beauty therapy days when we used Dermalogica’s Pre Cleanse on our clients. I was a little hesistant on trying oils on faces specially when I used to suffer from oily skin and cystic acne. After which I got a few samples of Shu Uemura’s cleansing oils (they have a wide range of these oils). I started researching more about them and tried them out for myself. I have tried many, so far I have loved some and not loved some.

THE BIG QUESTION- DOES IT WORK??

Yes they do and no matter if you have an oily or a dry skin, cleansing oils just balance your natural skin oils while completely melting of the dirt and debris from the skin. Oils have always been a great way of removing make up and now we have something that is oil but as soon as it is mixed with water it becomes foamy to give you the feel of a cleanser. Two jobs in one (I know the phrase that goes with it but I just hate to use it)

Honestly, not every brand’s cleansing oil is the same, but I’m here to talk to you about the good ones that really feel nice and remove all of my make up and make my skin feeling soft and completely clean. Here’s a list from my most favourite to my least favourite, these are my top favs so far.

  1. Shu Uemura High Performance Cleansing Oil A$42zoom_variation_NA_view_01_990x1290
  2. Clinique take the day off cleansing oil A$45Clinique_Take_The_Day_Off_Cleansing_Oil_200ml_1419001951
  3. Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil A$22 (much cheaper than the other oils but works equally well.)97950m_l

Please like & comment if cleansing oils have worked well for you and which brand cleansing oil do you really enjoy using, I’d really love to know.

Please follow me on for more posts. See you soon. 🙂
