Clay Mask - The Skinceuticals Clarifying Clay Mask, comprised of bentonite clay and Kaolin, is able to lift impurities from the skin and decongest the pores. Minerals in the mask are also able to help calm inflammation and irritation in the skin. This can be great for acne patients, as the mask is able to calm the face while cleaning out tough and clogged pores. Masks are also able to help gently exfoliate the skin, brightening the skin and further deepening their cleansing effects.

Other masks, like the Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Mask, are able to offer the skin the moisture that it is lacking. Hyaluronic acid is phenomenal for those who are experiencing consistent dryness in their skin, and can help restore the soft and supple tone of the skin. The B5 Vitamins within the mask are good for helping the skin retain its natural moisture, as well as the hydrating effects of a daily moisturiser and other skin care products.

We now know that 90% of the things on the skin we call ‘ageing’ are directly caused by the sun, this is called ‘photoaging.'

Photoaging is almost inescapable, as it is hard to steer completely clear of the sun. As you take the time to consider the amount of “face-time” you give the sun, also be aware of the skin products that you can use to combat and reduce the effects of the damaging rays of the sun.

Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring substance, that when used in skincare products offer many benefits to the skin, from rejuvenating to moisturizing. In its raw state, glycolic acid is a powder made up of colourless crystals that have no scent.

Seborrheic Dermatitis is an extremely common dermatologic condition that is generally considered a type of eczema.

What Are the Symptoms?

Dandruff, skin issue .As with most types of eczema, a red, scaly irritated rash is noted on the skin. People with seborrheic dermatitis will often complain of scaling or excessive flaking. This is often accompanied with itching or irritation in the affected areas of their skin. Areas most-often effected by this condition include the scalp, eyebrows, nasolabial folds, and corners of the mouth. The beard area, chest and groin can be affected causing flaking and discomfort as well. In general, these areas are rich in sebum and sebaceous glands. On the skin, the rash appears red and slightly oily, with yellow-coloured crust and scales. Seborrheic dermatitis is one of the most common causes of dandruff when it develops on the scalp.

Seborrheic dermatitis in babies and young children is commonly called Cradle Cap.
