Moisturisers, What are they?

Moisturisers, What are they?

August 21, 2021 4 min read

 

Moisturiser is simply a generic term that encompasses an extensive array of topical creams, gels, lotions, emulsions, and ointments. These formulas may contain humectants, occlusives or emollients in their combination of ingredients.

To choose the best moisturiser for your skin, it’s important to understand the difference between the different ingredients etc. 



Why It’s Important to Moisturise Your Skin.


The difference between emollients, humectants and occlusives really depends on the benefits required. Moisturisers make dry, tight skin feel better and plump up the surface skin cells to enhance the texture and glow of the skin. They hydrate the outer surface of the skin and help resolve dryness, flakiness, redness, and itchiness.

Glycolic acid - The Glow Getter.

Glycolic acid - The Glow Getter.

August 20, 2021 2 min read

Glycolic acid — you’ve probably seen it on the back of multiple skin-care cleansers, serums, and gels you have in your collection. We can’t seem to escape the ingredient, and there’s a good reason why, glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and works as a mild exfoliant. It’s a small molecule, and this is important because it helps it to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Like other acids, it works to brighten the skin’s appearance by removing dead skin layers that live on top.

While all skin types can use glycolic acid, it may work best on oily and acne-prone skin. It’s harder to tolerate when you have dry or sensitive skin. If that sounds like you, stick to products that contain it in lower percentages or reduce the frequency with which you use it. On the flip side, glycolic acid is highly effective for evening out your skin tone and altering discoloration, which is why those with acne-prone skin generally respond well to it.

HARD WATER VS. SOFT WATER: HOW YOUR WATER  REALLY AFFECTS YOUR HAIR

HARD WATER VS. SOFT WATER: HOW YOUR WATER REALLY AFFECTS YOUR HAIR

August 20, 2021 3 min read

 

Wondering about hard vs. soft water for hair?


We’ve all heard the terms “hard” and “soft” water before, but if we’re completely honest—we had no idea what it meant until recently. How could a liquid like water feel hard? Does hard water damage hair? What makes water soft and how does that affect your hair? We don’t know about you but, hard water for hair doesn’t sound like a beauty treatment we’d want to try.

What is hard water?
Contrary to what it sounds like, the name hard water doesn’t have anything to do with the way the water feels. Water is hard when it has a higher than usual concentration of minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium carbonates. Water can become hard naturally as it picks up minerals from rocks as it flows through rivers, streams, and wells.

While hard water is generally thought of as safe to drink, cook with, and bathe in, many cities task their water treatment plants with filtering out as many minerals as possible. However, filtered water can sometimes pick up more minerals as it leaves the treatment plant and makes its way to your home through hundreds of miles of metal pipes.

In Ireland we mostly have hard water. Interestingly hard water tastes nicer than soft water.

Is hard water bad for your hair?
Hard water doesn’t just sound like it’s bad for your hair—it can be.
All the minerals and heavy metals in hard water can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, brassy, and dull. Your scalp can also get flaky and itchy, too.

Retinoids remain the Gold Standard for fighting acne and wrinkles.

Retinoids remain the Gold Standard for fighting acne and wrinkles.

August 01, 2021 6 min read

Although they’ve been around for decades, the vitamin A derivatives known as retinoids remain the gold standard for treating acne and wrinkles, with the skin-care and pharmaceutical industries continuing to develop and manufacture new products featuring them. Retinoids — including the most commonly known, retinol — are found in both prescription medications and over-the-counter formulations in a variety of strengths and product types.

But despite their longevity and proven results, these compounds retain the potential for undesirable side effects, such as peeling skin and sun sensitivity. It’s important, therefore, to understand the various types of retinoids and the safest ways to incorporate them into a skin-care regimen.

Skin Barrier Issues.

Skin Barrier Issues.

August 01, 2021 4 min read

Your skin barrier is the lipid matrix found in the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum-corneum, and essentially sits on top of this layer. When healthy, the skin barrier helps keep moisture in and external irritants out (e.g., UV, free radicals, bacteria) - acting as your skin’s bodyguard.

What is the skin barrier?

The skin barrier, or moisture barrier, is mainly composed of three lipids: ceramides, cholesterol, and free (AKA essential) fatty acids. These lipids work together to prevent water loss and to protect your skin from the environment. Damage to the skin barrier occurs in the form of miniscule cracks through which moisture can easily escape and irritants can enter more easily.

Signs your skin barrier is damaged:

When your skin barrier is healthy, your skin generally looks plump and smooth and feels soft to the touch. If you have oily skin that’s also dehydrated, that’s a common sign that you may have a damaged skin barrier. (Yes ... Your skin can be both oily and dehydrated.

SUNEKOS – HYALURONIC ACID AND AMINO ACIDS FOR THE SKIN SUNEKOS 200

July 31, 2021 2 min read

Winner of the Safety in Beauty Innovation and Pioneering award 2019, SuneKos is a non-surgical treatment comprising of a unique combination of hyaluronic acid and amino acids which triggers a skin regeneration process called dermal biogenesis.

Whilst deeply hydrating and plumping the skin, clinical trials have shown that the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can activate bio-revitalisation from within your skin which results in plumper, smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking skin. SuneKos combines this HA with a special combination of amino acids which directly stimulates the Extra Cellular Matrix (ECM) fibroblasts which in turn rebuilds the living layer of your skin, called the dermis.

Sleep and skin health.

Sleep and skin health.

July 25, 2021 2 min read


Good quality, restorative sleep is also crucial for the nightly cellular repair, regeneration and immune function. Every night, we go through repeated cycles of two distinctly different sleep phases: Rapid Eye Movement (REM, when the most active dreaming happens) and non-REM sleep (NREM, the deeper sleep). During NREM, blood flow is directed from our brain and body core, more towards the body’s periphery including the skin. Thus, a restorative hormone flow is established, and cellular repair is enhanced.

Sleep deprivation on the other hand is known to contribute to systemic inflammation, even after a short period of only a couple of weeks, as research has shown. In fact, sleep deprivation is thought to increase all sorts of age-related processes as well as chronic health problems.
