Sun Cream Products Explained

Most dermatologists advise that the best anti-ageing product you can buy is a good quality suncream. But which one? You may not realise it but over the counter products rarely cover the full spectrum of the sun’s rays. The sun emits different types of harmful rays, predominantly Ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB). UVB is responsible for burning the upper/outer layers of the skin, whereas UVA penetrates more deeply, and is responsible for causing acceleration of ageing of the skin. The sun also emits Infra-Red (IR) rays which can damage collagen. Furthermore we get skin damage from HEV (High […]

Open pores, blackheads, whiteheads and spots.

You don’t have to suffer from enlarged pores, blackheads, whiteheads or spots- effective treatment is available. Pores appear when the hair follicle duct becomes blocked with sebum (oil) and dead skin. If the pores are open the contents oxidise & darken and appear as blackheads. Whiteheads are the same but with the neck of the duct sealed, as shown below.   These conditions will respond to appropriate skin care. Medical grade skin care has a higher concentration of active ingredients and is much more effective than anything you can buy over the counter. For a skin regime to tackle pores […]

Five ways your moisturiser may be harming your skin

Many patients I see use moisturisers to try to stave off wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Frequently, however, I hear a complaint that they don’t work and that the skin feels dry and dull despite adhering to a strict moisturising regime, often with expensive products. Why do so many complain of sensitive skin, when the incidence of true allergy is much lower? Why do many people suffer from spots well beyond teenage years? It is easy to misdiagnose rough skin for dryness and then start to moisturise, whereas exfoliation is what the skin really needed. Read on to learn […]

Facial Redness

Do you suffer with facial redness, especially across the cheeks and nose? If so you may have Rosacea (pronounced “row-zay-sha”). This often starts with a tendency to flush and frequently occurs in fair skinned people aged 40-60. Whilst it’s more common in women, when it occurs in a male patient it tends to be more severe. In addition to generalised redness, those with rosacea often experience a burning or stinging sensation, and the skin in the area can be particularly sensitive, especially to sunlight. Patients may describe trigger factors such as spicy food, alcohol, stress, exercise, wind, a change in […]

How to Get Rid of Bumpy Skin.

Do you have bumpy skin, for example on your arms? Keratosis Pilaris (“KP”), or chicken skin arms as it is commonly known, is a troublesome condition of all ethnicities, occurring in one in three adults, and over half of all adolescents. Affected skin is rough and has the appearance of permanent goose bumps. In more than half of the cases it is genetic (inherited), but otherwise the causes are not fully understood. KP occurs when small plugs of dead skin cells (keratin) block the hair follicles, causing an unsightly, rough, spotty appearance. In-growing hairs may occur in the plugs. KP is […]
