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.

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.

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.

5 Step Skin Care Regimen Everyone Needs

For a better health of the skin it is important to have a good skin regimen and here I have listed 5 main steps in the skin care that suit every skin type, every age, unless you are an infant. Keep reading to know more about what changes you need to make in your skin care regimen.

Step 1: Cleanse

Cleansing the first and very most important step of a beauty regimen. Cleansing removes dirt and debris from the skin. Cleansing kills the bacteria on the skin that breed on the cellular debris and excess oil production in the follicles resulting in acne. A good cleanser will maintain the pH of the skin, Kill bacteria and cleanse of all the debris and excess oil production without stripping the skin’s natural oils. Excessively drying cleansers strip the skin’s natural oils more than necessary and these oils when in the right amount protect the skin from harmful external environment.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliation is important to remove the dead skin cells that sit on top of the skin and make it look dull and grey, as the skin cells may not shed as effectively on its own. Exfoliation of the top layers of dead skin cells send messages to the lower layers to produce more healthy skin cells. Exfoliation can be performed from daily to thrice a week depending on the strength and coarseness of the product. Exfoliation in your regimen will make the skin look more plump and healthy, giving a natural glow.

Step 3: Serum

Serum: Basically these are the concentrated forms of a particular ingredient or a combination, unlike the very less percentage in a moisturiser. Serums are the liquid elixir that our skin requires. Serums come in many different forms for different skin types and conditions. Serums are the treating factor in the skin care regimen. With all different types of serums available on the market such as vitamins, AHAs, natural ingredients choose the ones with a good percentage of active ingredient and your skin will thank you for it.

Step 4: Moisturise

Moisturise: Dry or Oily, Old or young, moisturisers are the thirst relievers of the skin. If you have an oily skin it does not mean your skin doesn’t require moisturisers, Oily skin can still be dehydrated. Always moisturise the skin. Good moisturisers for Oily skin type have more water content in them hence water based moisturisers. Dry skin types lack oil hence the most suitable option is an oil based moisturiser. A well moisturised skin always appears healthy and radiant

Application-of-a-good-sunscreen
Step 5: Sunscreen

Sunscreens provide the skin with protection against the sun & heat. Sun damage is the biggest factor in ageing. Protection from the sun is necessary no matter what skin type it is. Sun also increases the melanin production of the skin hence tanning the skin and an increase if the skin suffers from freckles, melanoma or other hyper-pigmentation problems.
