Common Skin Problems And Their Solutions

 

Large pores

 

Keep skin clean. Debris can clog pores and can cause blackheads and acne. Exfoliate with products containing Salicylic Acid and AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), such as Glycolic Acid or Lactic Acid. Apply Dermystique Tinted Blemish Treatment Lotion during the day and Dermystique Poly-Rejuvenation Lotion at night. For more aggressive treatment, use Dermystique Advanced Action Formula. Dermystique Exfoliating Complex, containing a high percentage of AHA, exfoliates damaged skin.Always fill pores with products before putting on a foundation.

 

Redness, Rosacea

 

Cleanse with Dermystique Gentle Cleansing Foam. Avoid "triggers", such as spicy food, alcohol, sun exposure, and hot water. Apply Dermystique Antioxidant Elixir, Vitamin C and E Compound, and Dermystique Soothe and Calm Masque. Rosacea may require a consultation with a medica specialist.

 

Adult acne

 

A common occurrence amongst women between 25 and 50. As a first step, wash with a mild cleansing agent, such as Dermystique Gentle Cleansing Foam, several times a day, especially after exercising. Target individual blemishes A.M. and P.M. with a product containing a high dose of Salicylic Acid, such as Dermystique Advanced Action Formula. Follow up with Dermystique Soothe and Calm Masque, which will help dry out the blemishes and draw the impurities to the surface. To cover, use Dermystique Tinted Blemish Treatment Lotion. When in the sun, always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, such as Dermystique Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30.

 

Severe acne

 

Acne is a chronic condition and needs to be controlled even after the lesions subside. Although Dermystique skin care products, which contain high doses of Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid (ingredients of choice against acne), can help improve and prevent blemishes and acne, severe cases of acne, including cystic acne, requires the attention of medical specialists who might recommend the use of systemic or topical medications.

 

"Baggy" eyes

 

Lack of sleep and dehydration contribute to this symptom. Drink water before retiring for the night, elevate your head, and apply a warm wash cloth to the eyes. A.M., apply cold packs. Use an eye cream containing Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, and peptides, e.g., Dermystique Eye Rejuvenation Creme with Retinol-Peptide Complex.

 

Hyper-pigmentation, blotch spots, age spots, uneven skin tone


Apply Dermystique Skin Lightening Cream over entire face. Spot treatment may result in a halo effect. Apply Dermystique Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30 when outdoors.

 
 

Dry skin

 

Tends to be flaky and have fine wrinkles. Is is often itchy and rough. In wind and heat, it chaps easily. Avoid hot water when cleansing. Use Dermystique Eye Rejuvenation Creme with Retinol-Peptide Complex around the eye areas and Dermystique Cell Regeneration Creme Intensive with Kollacin for nighttime application.

 

Oily skin

 

Tends to be shiny a few hours after washing. It may break out and shows a tendency towards blackheads and whiteheads. Pores are often coarse, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin). Do not wash too often. Excessive cleansing may actually increase oil production. Use only oil-free products. Apply Dermystique Soothe and Calm Masque, which will remove excessive amounts of oil.

 

Sensitive skin

 

65% of the population think they have sensitive skin, although most often it is traceable to the overuse of products, irritating ingredients, such as Witch Hazel, and sulfates, most notably Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulfate. Truly sensitive skin is often irritated. Reacts to harsh chemicals, preservatives, fragrances, Vitamin C, and many botanicals. May have Rosacea and burns easily. Often tolerates Lactic Acid but not Glycolic Acid (both AHA's). Use Dermystique Exfoliating Complex with 10% Lactic Acid (if tolerated), Dermystique Gentle Cleansing Foam, and Dermystique Moisturizing and Tightening Skin Formula.

 

Combination skin

 

May display oily characteristics in T-zone, otherwise skin may be normal. Use products recommended for oily skin on the T-zone, and moisturizers, such as Dermystique Moisturizing and Tightening Skin Formula with 5% Algae Extract, on the normal part of the skin.

 

Dark circles under eyes

 

Use products containing Vitamin A, such as Dermystique Cell Regeneration Creme Intensive, which contains Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), or Eye Rejuvenation Creme with Retinol-Peptide Complex.

 

Blackheads

 

Wash twice or three times a day with Dermystique Gentle Cleansing Foam and once a day with Dermystique Stimulating Scrub with Oat Protein. Follow up with a product containing Salicylic Acid, such as Dermystique Advanced Action Formula. Since Salicylic Acid can dry out skin, do not use excessively.

 

Fine lines and wrinkles

 

Cleanse face daily with a mildly exfoliating cleanser, such as Dermystique Stimulating Scrub with Oat Protein. Invigorate your skin with antioxidants, such as Dermystique Cell Stimulant Formula with Retinol-Peptide-Vitamin C Complex (for normal skin), Dermystique Antioxidant Elixir, Vitamin C and E Compound (for dry skin), or Dermystique Lifting Poly-Serum with Alpha Lipoic Acid 2% and Lactic Acid 5%. Follow up with an anti-aging cream, such as Dermystique Anti-Wrinkle Creme Supreme with Retinol-Peptide Complex, and Dermystique Eye Rejuvenation Creme with Retinol-Peptide Complex around the eye areas. For a nighttime product, use Dermystique Cell Regeneration Creme Intensive with Kollacin, containing Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A). Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen, SPF 15 or higher, during the day, preferably one containing micronized Zinc Oxide. Dermystique Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30 protects against UVA, UVB, and UVC rays and moisturizes the skin as it is exposed to the drying sun.

 

Dull complexion

 

Sun damage and free radicals, such as smoke and pollution, contribute to a dull complexion. Dead skin cells need to be removed before the conditons can improve. Apply antioxidant products, such as Dermystique Cell Stimulant Formula with Retinol-Peptide-Vitamin C Complex (for normal skin), Dermystique Antioxidant Elixir, Vitamin C and E Compound (for dry skin), or Dermystique Lifting Poly-Serum to help repair the damage. Follow with a thorough regimen of exfoliation. This will remove dead cells and allow new ones to emerge, making for a youthful-looking, glowing skin. Exfoliate the skin with products containing AHA, such as Dermystique Exfoliating Complex, containing 10% Lactic Acid. This product is formulated for all skin types and, in many cases, is even tolerated by sensitive skin. To encourage regeneration of cells, especially in mature skin, apply Dermystique Cell Regeneration Creme Intensive with Kollacin P.M. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher on a daily basis. Zinc Oxide is the ingredient of choice for protection against UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. Micronized Zinc Oxide with small molecules penetrates the skin and does not leave a white film if rubbed in vigorously. Dermystique Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30 is ideally suited to protect the skin and, at the same time, keep it hydrated during sun exposure. Dead skin cells contribute to a dull look of the skin.

 

Environmentally damaged skin

 

May show extensive sun damage, which causes the skin to be unevenly pigmented, dull, and lifeless. Normal skin often displays these characteristics. Exfoliate extensively, e.g., with Dermystique Exfoliating Complex with 10% Lactic Acid. Products with Retinol and/or Lipoic Acid would also be beneficial. Dermystique Eye Rejuvenation Creme with Retinol-Peptide Complex, Dermystique Anti-Wrinkle Creme Supreme with Retinol-Peptide Complex, and Dermystique Lifting Poly-Serum with Alpha Lipoic Acid 2% and Lactic Acid 5%, likewise, are helpful.

 

Blemished and acneic skin

 

Usually feels oily and greasy. It may break out frequently, sometimes continously, and may form small pustules that can result in scarring and hyperpigmentation, which, in later years, can result in granny spots or age spots. Frequently, it shows blackheads and enlarged pores. Makeup, typically, does not stay on well. Use mild cleansers, such as Dermystique Gentle Cleansing Foam, A.M., P.M., and after strenuous physical exercises. Follow a continuous skin care regimen with anti-acne products, such as Dermystique Tinted Blemish Treatment Lotion, Dermystique Poly-Rejuvenation Lotion, and/or Dermystique Advanced Action Formula. Twice or three times a week, apply a drying facial mask, such as Dermystique Soothe and Calm Masque.
