Products I Have Used And Their Ingredients

Keeping a list of previous products and their ingredients so I know what ingredients I can safely use. Loved the Dove Deep Moisture facial lotion with spf 15 even though it was for dry skin. Never caused a problem and made my skin so awesome. Had green tea in it, too! They discontinued it. Ingredients Active: Octinoxate (5.5%), Octisalate (3.0%), Avobenzone (2.0%), Ensulizole (2.0%). Inactive: Water, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Triethanolamine, Sorbitan Stearate, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetyl A

Cleansing Without Compromise: The Impact Of Cleansers On The Skin Barrier And The Technology Of Mild Cleansing

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14728695 Abstract Cleanser technology has come a long way from merely cleansing to providing mildness and moisturizing benefits as well. It is known that harsh surfactants in cleansers can cause damage to skin proteins and lipids, leading to after-wash tightness, dryness, barrier damage, irritation, and even itch. In order for cleansers to provide skin-care benefits, they first must minimize surfactant damage to skin proteins and lipids. Secondly, t

Ph-Induced Alterations In Stratum Corneum Properties.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18494892/ Abstract Skin-cleansing compositions based on alkyl carboxylates (soaps) have a higher irritation potential than those based on syndet surfactants such as alkyl isethionates or alkyl ether sulphates. Contributing factors include inherent differences in the irritation potential of soaps and syndet surfactants, pH-induced changes in surfactant solution chemistry, and the direct effects of pH on the physical properties of the stratum corneum

The Ph Of The Skin Surface And Its Impact On The Barrier Function.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16864974/ Abstract The 'acid mantle' of the stratum corneum seems to be important for both permeability barrier formation and cutaneous antimicrobial defense. However, the origin of the acidic pH, measurable on the skin surface, remains conjectural. Passive and active influencing factors have been proposed, e.g. eccrine and sebaceous secretions as well as proton pumps. In recent years, numerous investigations have been published focusing on the chan

Challenges And Opportunities In Dermal/transdermal Delivery

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2995530/ The pH of the skin’s surface has been reported to be in the range of 5.4 to 5.9 and is important in the maintenance of skin barrier function and defense against infection and disease [88]. The skin also has an excellent buffering capacity against large changes in pH. Albeit, external factors such as washing and applying solutions, drugs and cosmetics to the surface of the skin can raise its surface pH and can likewise increase or induce

A Guide To The Ingredients And Potential Benefits Of Over-The-Counter Cleansers And Moisturizers For Rosacea Patients

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3168246/ It is difficult for rosacea patients to discern which products and ingredients will be beneficial to their skin and which products will lead to an exacerbation of the signs and symptoms of rosacea. In this paper, the authors provide a brief overview of rosacea, its pathogenesis, signs and symptoms, and the management of the two major rosacea subtypes—erythematotelangiectatic rosacea and papular pustular rosacea.

The Alkaline Ph-Adapted Skin Barrier Is Disrupted Severely By Sls-Induced Irritation

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19467032 Abstract The pH of the healthy skin is 5.5 and maintained by many regulatory mechanisms. The pH of the skin care product we use on a daily basis can have an influence on the skin properties. To investigate how the physical properties of skin change after the alkaline or acidic pH of the skin care products are applied on the skin for a long term, we adjusted the pH of the skin care products to 3, 5 and 8 (A, B, C), with glycolic acid and tri

Paula's Choice Product Progress Blog

Going to put my info here here so I can keep track of it, and if anyone wants to check it out, maybe it will benefit you when using her products yourself. So, I've been using Dianna Yvonne's 2% SA Exfol Serum for a year or so. I've gone through 2 bottles. As I neared the end of my second bottle, I thought about reordering but, I didn't think it was making much difference. I knew it was working somewhat because 1) my lips would dry out from the SA migrating to them and 2) my skin seemed bet

Clinical Implications Of Lipid Peroxidation In Acne Vulgaris: Old Wine In New Bottles

Basically reviewing if lipid peroxidation is the beginning of acne and if antioxidants which prevent such breakdown can control acne.

The Ziit Method

http://www.acne.org/the-ziit-method.html This is a method you can use if you want to do everything you possibly can to prevent a zit from forming. It is important that you catch the pimple early, in its initial stages. Once a pimple is full-blown, this method may help it heal a bit faster, but there will not be much you can do at that point. Zinc Zinc helps heal wounds, is an antioxidant, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.1-2 It has been shown in several studies to help heal

Treatments That Work For Me

For tiny pimples which I call surface types: I have found that benzyl peroxide works great. Takes a few days but dries them up. I have found that a lower 5% concentration works better without over drying. I use Oxy Clinical time released. When my skin is dry, I alternate Olay night repair moisturizer (it's a purple cream) Cysts: Ice Sometimes heat--a wet wash cloth heated in microwave and held on cysts. I have noticed either they come to a head quicker OR they deflate
