The Dangers Of Washing Your Face With Deodorant Soap By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Give us a moment while we take a deep breath! It’s true that some women do wash their faces with deodorant soap. We know it’s not you, but would you please pass this information along to your friend?

Facial skin has a lower pH than the rest of your body. That means it’s slightly more
acidic. A deodorant soap, however, is more alkaline. When applied to your face, it encourages the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

It’s also drying. That’s why grabbing whatever is in the shower to clean your skin is not a good idea. The stronger the deodorant soap, the more it strips your facial skin of protective lipids and proteins.

And all that dryness? Tell her it really ages her skin.

We know you’re diligently taking our advice and covering and protecting your skin from the sun’s fierce rays.

After all, there is absolutely no good reasons to undo all your hard winter work to keep your skin looking fabulous, now is there?

But there are 8 areas that get overlooked—and cooked—every summer. So we thought we would remind you to protect these areas, especially if you’re on the beach or by the pool.

Scalp- This is a common area for skin cancer, believe it or not! Use spray on or powder sunscreens or just a good old-fashioned hat.

Ears- Pre-cancerous lesions show up on the ears, especially on the driver’s side. Sun through a car window is stronger. Keep some sunscreen in your car.

Eyelids- This one really hurts when they get burned. The eye area is the thinnest skin on the body, so this is a real telltale ager.

Swimsuit Edges- Ouch! Apply sunscreen before you put on your swimsuit and give it a chance to dry first.

Neck & Chest- Basal cell and squamous cell cancers love these areas. Liberally apply sunscreen to avoid such nastiness.

Lips, Hands & Feet- Lips can be tricky to cover, but with a bodily internal spread rate of up to 20%, it’s best to be safe. Don’t forget your hands and feet, too.

Now that you’re officially protected, go have fun!

Every woman aims to look younger. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Genetics plays a big factor, but there are ways to combat them.

How? It all starts with pH. When the pH of your skin is faulty it can create premature aging. That means your face can feel tight and dry, like you never cleaned it, and worse, you may develop acne.

If your skin is too alkaline, that can mean:

  • It can be drier and more brittle
  • Your skin is more susceptible to sun damage because the barrier has been weakened
  • Your skin can become oilier
  • You develop more fine lines and crow’s feet (British Journal of Dermatology)

When skin is too alkaline, it takes 14 hours for it to return to normal. And sadly, you’ve already re-applied the offending products so the damage never gets repaired.

What can you do? Let us give you a professional skin analysis. And no, we’re not talking about the department store kind of “analysis.” One of our highly trained aestheticians talks to you about your lifestyle, your current regimen, and any medical conditions you may have. (Some medical conditions and medications can cause skin challenges.)

She will look beneath the surface of your skin to get a complete picture, discuss with you what she finds and recommend the right products for your skin type.

You’ll feel a difference instantly and see results within a week. Schedule your consult today and know how old your skin really is!

Hidden Causes Of Acne By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Having skin prone to acne means you have to put skincare in your top priority. Acne-prone skin has four to five times more skin cells than other skin types. This means you have to be careful with the products you use.

Various styling products have oil, silicones and plasticizers. They can easily clog your pores if they get on your skin. So make sure you avoid these hair products.

Certain habits can also be a cause of acne without you even knowing it.

Outdated makeup and dirty tools are breeding grounds for bacteria. Do you remember the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? Every time you use them, you’re simply allowing the combination of bacteria and dead skin cells to create zits on your face.

And there’s also smoking. Researchers at the Gallicano Dermatological Institute in Rome identified non-inflammatory acne to be common among frequent smokers. They also found that teenaged acne smokers were four to five times more likely than non-smokers to have adult acne.

In order to beat acne, be informed about the problem, the possible causes and how to solve it.
