BLEMISHES, ACNE AND BREAK OUTS
Spots and breakouts happen for various reasons. Some spots are your skin’s response to a build-up of excess oil or dead skin cells or as a reaction to debris such as pollution and makeup getting trapped inside your pores. Spots can also occur as a result of hormonal imbalances, diet or skin sensitivity. There are also different kinds of spots that require different kinds of treatment – from pimples to pustules to whiteheads and blackheads and hormonal breakouts.
If you’re concerned about acne, (whether that’s adult acne, hormonal break outs or regular congestion and blackheads), it’s always best to seek out a personalised consultation with a dermatologist who can determine a bespoke course of action as everyone’s skin is different.
There are different approaches to treating blemishes – from changing to your skincare, your diet, even your lifestyle, however, we’re pleased to share with you some dermatologist approved, well-respected rules and practices that can help nurture blemish-free skin.
- Cleanse your face morning and evening
- Use warm, not hot water to preserve your skin’s natural hydration
- Try not to scrub the skin as this can irritate inflammation
- Pat skin dry gently
- Always remove your makeup, every single day
- Avoid comedogenic products which can block the pores – such as lanolin, mineral oil or petroleum-based products
- Use spot treatments on specific spots not whole areas
- Exfoliate two or three times a week
- Use a moisturiser that’s suitable for your skin type
- Don’t squeeze spots
OIYARI PRODUCTS THAT SOOTHE BLEMISHES AND ENCOURAGE A CLEAR COMPLEXION:
ANTI - AGEING
As we grow older our skin reduces its ability to create Collagen and Elastin and as such, it naturally starts to thin and lose elasticity. Other signs of ageing include wrinkles, age spots and fine lines. However there are ways to preserve healthy, younger-looking skin and support your skin to look its best.
While our genes and hormones contribute to how our skin ages, the only type of ageing we have real control over is environmental ageing. That means protecting your skin against UV rays, pollution reducing toxins and avoiding a poor diet all of which can change the cellular structure throughout your body and show up as premature ageing.
SO HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR SKIN IN THE FIGHT AGAINST AGEING?
- Use products that combat environmental damage with key ingredients such as antioxidants, Peptides and Vitamin E.
- Use SPF everyday
- Drink more water to hydrate your complexion
- Reduce your sugar intake
- Moisturise your skin with a high performance serum
OIYARI PRODUCTS THAT SUPPORT YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN:
DRY, MATURE OR SUN-DAMAGED SKIN
Weather stressed skin can look old before its time especially if you do not wear sun protection - you can often notice premature lines and dehydration.
Use a broad spectrum SPF – the higher the better. Protect your skin by using a moisturiser that contains Hyaluronic Acid which encourages softer, smoother skin and increases your skin’s natural moisture levels.
OIYARI PRODUCTS THAT CAN HELP SUN-DAMAGED SKIN:
DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES
Dark circles under our eyes are a sign of ageing – or lack of sleep! If you’re suffering from undereye puffiness or dark circles you need to use targeted products to help reduce their appearance.
The skin around our eyes is extremely delicate so make sure you don’t rub or aggravate the skin there. Use an oil based makeup remover to gently remove mascara and avoid stressing the skin. Prioritise products that use a blend of Peptides, Anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients to minimise fine lines and fade those dark circles away.
OIYARI PRODUCTS THAT CAN HELP SUN-DAMAGED SKIN
Normal or combination skin requires a healthy skincare regime just as much as any other skin type. The Oiyari range has been created to be suitable for all skin types and uses a high concentration of Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid to ensure your skin remains pH balanced.
ROSACEA, REDNESS, SENSITIVE SKIN
Rosacea is a common skin condition which often leads to skin sensitivity. It begins with a tendency to blush or flush red more easily than others and this redness can spread across the cheeks, nose and forehead to the ears, chin, chest and back. Consult a dermatologist when trying to manage rosacea, so you can determine what the causal factors might be. Some rosacea is genetic or can be triggered by external factors such as dairy or caffeine, hot and humid climates, exercise or even stress.
Adopt a gentle skincare regime Use products that are suitable for sensitive skin Consult with a dermatologist for specific treatment as requiredAlways spot test new products to see if you have a reactionAvoid toners, astringents and exfoliant products as these can be too harsh for sensitive rosacea prone skinAllow your skin to air dry after cleansing, before applying other products
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes skin to become inflamed with a scaly appearance. It often happens in patches and is typically the result of an immune system irregularity, where new skin cells form in days rather than weeks, meaning that it’s difficult for the body to shed these cells fast enough. There are lots of factors which can contribute to psoriasis and these include everything from stress to immune system abnormalities and genetics. If you think you might be suffering from psoriasis it’s important to seek a professional opinion on how best to manage this condition.
It’s worth being extra careful with your skin and skincare regime.
- Look for products which are fragrance free
- Moisturise immediately after bathing or showering while skin is still damp
- Use a lighter moisturiser during the day and a richer one at night
Eczema is an uncomfortable skin condition which is the result of an immune system response. It causes itchy skin and red bumps and can be triggered by a number of irritants, from sweat to soap, to dry air, grass, sand, pollen, smoke or hard water.
Depending on the severity of your eczema there are different approaches to treating it and the best advice is to seek a medical opinion from a dermatologist. There are some basic skincare rules that you can follow in the meantime.
- Spot test all skincare products before use
- Avoid moisturisers with chemicals or additives that can irritate the skin
