Below, you'll find answers to some of the most common questions people have about how to care for their skin.
Q: What causes acne?
A: Acne can be caused by excess sebum oil and clogged pores. Doctors aren’t sure why some people get acne and others do not.
Acne is most common in young adults with increasing hormone levels. Since stress can affect hormones, it may also play a role in the development of acne, there is no definitive evidence that factors such as stress, diet, or light makeup have any links with acne. If you have acne, wash gently with a Brightening Facial Cleanser no more than twice a day; and avoid hard scrubbing, exfoliating, and touching the affected areas.
Q: What is the best treatment for age spots?
Age spot treatments include:
Before you do those treatments above, please use iRenew Perfect for a month. Then do Microneedling
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.
Typically, a microneedling treatment begins with a practitioner taking pictures of the treatment area, then applying a numbing cream. Once the area is numb, they use a handheld needling device on the skin for about 20–30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. The device looks like a large pen with a cluster tiny needles on the end.
"The treatment is fairly comfortable due to the topical numbing cream we apply prior to treatment,". "You might feel some tiny pin pricks, as some areas of the face are more sensitive than others. Overall, it's a very tolerable procedure!"
The downtime is about 3–5 days. According to Vincent, on days 1–3, it may look like you have a sunburn, and your skin may feel tight, dry, swollen, or sensitive to the touch. On days 3–5, your skin should start to return to its normal tone and any swelling should subside, though there is still the possibility of some minor peeling or flaking.
It all depends on what you're trying to treat. "Acne scars typically require as many as Three treatments, with treatments spaced four weeks apart," Vincent says. Those who just want to improve the overall tone and texture of their skin can usually get what Vincent calls "great results" in about two treatments.
Q: What are the most important parts of a skincare routine?
A: Since sun damage increases the risk of skin cancer, as well as skin problems ranging from wrinkles to dark spots, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is essential. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15. Beyond that, it takes just a few minutes each morning and each evening to do the basics: washing with a Brightening facial cleanser and applying serum then applying a moisturizer to your face and neck.
Q: How can I avoid wrinkles?
A: Wrinkles are a natural result of aging, but you can delay their onset or minimize their appearance. To do so, limit sun exposure, Double Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Perfect skin moisturizer, which can reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Q: What should I do about dark spots?
A: UV exposure and hormonal changes are two causes of dark spots. Avoiding the sun and wearing sunscreen can prevent new dark spots from forming, while exfoliating regularly or Double Vitamin C Brightening Serum and broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. Certain dark spot correctors or moisturizers may also make a difference over time.
Q: How can I prevent aging skin?
A: As your skin loses elasticity and collagen, it naturally begins to appear wrinkled and saggy. By caring for it and focusing on prevention, you can minimize these issues. Apply a Double Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Perfect Skin Moisturizer every day, which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
Q: What’s the best way to handle sensitive skin?
A: Be gentle with it! Always wash sensitive skin gently, and never use harsh cleansers. Avoid products that contain irritating substances. Should use Brightening Facial Cleanser.
Q: How do I know if a product is right for me
A: Sometimes, there is no way to tell for sure unless you try it. Usually, however, you can make an educated guess by examining the product’s label and ingredient list. To increase the chance that products won’t irritate your skin, try out Brightening Facial Cleanser, Double Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Perfect Skin Moisturizer “suitable for sensitive skin”.
Q: Do I really need to wear sunscreen every day?
A: In short, yes! If you care about your skin, wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 is the one thing you can do to protect it most. Sunscreen helps decrease the risk of skin cancer and other negative effects including wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, and sallowness.
Q: How can I fix an uneven skin tone?
A: An uneven skin tone is caused by an uneven distribution of pigment. Sun exposure and hormonal changes can also contribute to this issue. Certain serums, creams or moisturizers, especially those that contain vitamin C, can all help to even out your skin tone. It is also possible that your skin can develop an uneven tone due to a buildup of dead skin cells. If that is the issue, a simple way to even out your skin tone is Brightening Facial Cleanser, Double Vitamin C Brightening Serum and Perfect Skin Moisturizer twice a day.
Q: How do I find out my skin type?
A: Typically, skin is classified in just a few categories, including normal, oily, dry, and sensitive. If you have combination skin, it means your skin is one type in one area and another type in another area (oily around your T-zone but normal everywhere else, for instance). Your skin type can change over time and can also be affected by factors such as hormones, medications, and diet. To get a good idea of what your skin type might be, wash it gently and leave it product-free for several hours before examining it closely to observe different areas.
Q: My skin is really sensitive and products easily irritate my skin. What can I use?
A: Simply avoid using irritating products and your skin will be less irritated. Pretty simple, huh? iRenew Perfect is the best for you.
