How To Deal With Adult Acne

1440778944_1436215763_dermalogica

Canada’s first ever Acne Awareness Week is September 14 to 20, 2015. Five million Canadians have acne. Acne was once thought of as a teen-only skin condition, however, it is also common in adult women. Acne effects 90 per cent of teens. Up to 22 per cent, or one in five women, suffer from acne during adulthood compared to just three per cent of men. The rate of depression due to acne is 10 per cent.

Adult acne isn’t pretty. It makes you want to run and hide. Here are some effective treatments to help you handle your out-of-control skin.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Primarily an antibacterial agent, the main effect of benzoyl peroxide on the skin is to introduce oxygen to the clogged parts of the skin’s pores. The more oxygen, the more fatal the environment is for the anaerobic bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide is capable of wiping out acne-causing organisms such as propionibacterium acnes. Benzoyl peroxide may also be used in combination with salicylic acid.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is an exfoliating agent that peels off dead skin cells by loosening the binding substance that make the surface skin cells stick together. It combines well with oil and can penetrate deep inside clogged pores. By doing this, salicylic acid helps speed up the growth of new skin cells, it keeps the pores clear and prevents future acne outbreaks. Salicylic acid may be used in combination with benzoyl peroxide. If you have sensitive skin it is best to start with .05 per cent as the active ingredient and move upwards of two per cent because it may cause dryness.

MicroSilver BG

MicroSilver BG is a natural antimicrobial cleansing product. It is a pure metallic silver powder with a very unique particle structure consisting of highly porous micro-sized silver particles. MicroSilver BG is safe, free of side effects and does not penetrate skin or mucosal tissue because of its large particle size (average of 10 micrometers). The 99.9 per cent pure metallic silver is obtained from nature and, using a patented production process, pulverized by purely physical methods. It contains no parabens and has never been tested on animals.

Poor But Sexy Magazine Article

Hi Everyone,

Please feel free to check out the new blog in Poor But Sexy Magazine: http://www.poorbutsexy.ca/the-artists-guide-to-self-publishing-part-i/

PBSHORIZONTAL-1

You wouldn’t be wrong to say that Robert Brodey, author of the political thriller, “Josef’s Lair” , and Natalia Zurawska, author of “I’m Not Making This Up”, a book of make-up tips for fashion newbies, come from different ends of the arts spectrum. One is an avid photojournalist and the other a talented hair and makeup artist.

What both of these authors had in common was the goal of writing a book and taking it public with or without an agent or publisher behind them. For the next two days, we will find out how they did it, what companies they chose to work with and what their results were. If you’ve ever wondered about self-publishing, stay tuned. – excerpt from article

Wedding Beauty Do’s and Don’ts

Weddings are such amazing celebrations of love and unity, but your wedding will also be the most important beauty-focused day of your life. With all of the photos and video that will be shot on your wedding day, looking your best is key. Here are some of my favourite hair and makeup tips and tricks:

Wedding Beauty Do’s
When looking for wedding hair and makeup styles, inspiration can be anywhere. Keep in mind that your hair style should seem realistic. It’s also a good tip to arrange for a hair and makeup trial to ease a lot of stress on the day of the wedding.

  • It is best to go with a look that is similar to your natural hair style.
  • A more natural makeup look is also great if your skin reacts differently to more humid weather, typical of weddings that take place in the summer season.
  • Waterproof mascara is a must – especially if the tears start to flow. Waterproof eyeliner formulations are also a great idea.

There are dozens of beauty products out there to get you ready for your big day. Here are a few of my favourites:

  • If you have great skin, Hello Flawless by Benefit is for you. It is a powder that may be used wet or dry.  You can also spot apply in layers like a concealer.
  • If you need added coverage, Face Atelier Foundation is great. It has a primer built right in to keep makeup on all day and night. It also comes in a variety of tones for every ethnicity. The result is flawless skin. I like to apply it to eyelids as well to keep eye shadow on for hours.
  • I love the Climate Control hairspray by Tresemme. Hair stays put, yet can be brushed through and the shine is incredible.
  • The Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray by Tresemme is my one of my favourites. It not only protects your hair from heat, it tames frizzies and makes curls last longer and smells so good.
  • Covergirl 24 Hour Lashblast mascara is fantastic. It lengthens, adds volume and separates lashes while staying put all day and night. It washes off well with makeup remover – it’s a must have for any bride.

Wedding Beauty Don’ts

  • Don’t change your hair colour or cut it drastically right before your wedding.
  • Don’t get a wax days before your wedding. If waxing or laser hair removal is normal for you, schedule your appointment at least 3 days beforehand in case of an allergy or redness.
  • Spray tans are tricky and the last thing you want to do is look orange for your big day. If you really want a sun-kissed glow I would suggest a practice run before the wedding to make sure you like the colour.
