It’s a well know fact that many of us rely on Google to seek answers. How, When, Where and Why! Google keeps us in the know. So, let’s look at some of the most common skincare questions that folks google to find answers.
According to our research, here are some of the most common skincare questions and concerns.
HOW TO GET RID OF STRETCH MARKS? Stretch marks happen when your body grows quickly, for example through growth spurts, pregnancy or weight gain. When the skin is quickly stretched, fractures in the collagen occur deep within the connective tissue of the dermis, resulting in the long, thin, rippled marks we have a love-hate relationship with. Sometimes called stria, stretch marks can be red at first, before turning in to a less noticeable silvery appearance.
Although the underlying problem of the fractured collagen cannot be corrected by a cream, using one when the stretch marks are still red will help to speed up this color change making them less noticeable.
WHAT IS ACNE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT? The gold standard of acne treatment is now a dermatological guideline based on severity of the acne condition. Meaning, how bad are the outbreaks, and what type of acne are you experiencing, because it varies. You know what we highly recommend. One of our Full Acne Regimens.
WHAT IS ROSACEA? Rosacea is a widespread but misunderstood condition relating to the hyper-responsiveness of blood vessels on the face. It tends to affect the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose, and is characterized by persistent redness caused by dilated blood vessels, small bumps and pus-filled spots like acne. A combination of oral antibiotics and skincare with anti-inflammatory properties will help treat the condition. We recommend the following one of our R$ch Butters.
HOW TO CURE SUNBURN? You can’t “cure” sunburn, but if you recognize the signs of excessive sun exposure you can minimize the discomfort associated with it. If you’ve neglected the MPF and accidentally burned your skin in the sun, cover up the affected areas and stay in the shade. Look out for ingredients such as aloe vera, which is packed with the amino acids essential for helping skin repair itself. Our Melan-in Skin Nourishing Serum is an excellent choice.
HOW DO I TAKE OFF MAKEUP WITHOUT MAKEUP WIPES? Using the right cleanser or face wash is just as capable of makeup removal than the average wipe and can even be a quicker process. The cleanser and makeup remover help to lift makeup along with dirt, unwanted impurities, and excess oil from skin with ease and without drying it out. We recommend one of our Oil Cleansers, plus Make-up remover.
HOW TO GET RID OF OILY SKIN? This is a daily struggle for those of us with an oily complexion, made even worse by the accompanying spots and blackheads. The challenge with oily skin is that it is caused by excess production of a substance called sebum. But sebum isn’t all bad. In fact, a small amount of it is vital for healthy skin. Too much of it, however, leaves us looking shiny and prone to spotty flare ups. The key is to wash regularly to keep skin clean and to believe it or not - stay hydrated. We recommend one of out Cleansers for oily skin.
HOW TO STOP BLACKHEADS ON YOUR NOSE? As we have preached often, ensuring you’re washing your face regularly is essential if you really want to banish the black spots from your nose. For a bonus, use an Exfoliating Wash or regularly exfoliate to get rid of dead skin cells and unclog your pores.
