Acne is a skin condition that appears when dead cells, oil and bacteria clog a hair follicle. The effects will include cysts, inflammation, whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Symptoms may appear on the face, forehead, back, shoulders and chest. Acne mostly occurs in teenagers, but it can affect people of all ages
Blackheads are a mild form of acne which causes small bumps on the face and body. Plugged hair follicles will cause trapped sebum to turn dark and appear as a blackhead on its surface. A regular facial will remove blackhead and prevent them from appearing in the future.
Scarring occurs in the skin after the biological process of wound repair or healing. Most injuries such as cuts, scratches, burns, acne, cysts, breakouts, and pimples may lead to a scar to form on the skin’s surface.
Dull skin tone is a condition that appears when dead cells and oil accumulate on the surface of the skin. Dullness is a common condition if you are near the age of 30 and above. Causes may include dry skin, oily skin, dehydration and slow cell renewal. The symptoms may appear as loss of radiance and glow.
Pores are microchannels in the skin that connected to hair follicles. The primary function of pores is to release oil and sweat, and they are barely visible. Dilated pores or large pores, however, may be caused by acne, oily skin, sun damage and inappropriate use of cosmetic products.
Oily skin occurs when glands overproduce sebum. Sebum is made of fats and is used to moisturize and protect your skin and hair naturally. However, excessive sebum production may lead to oily skin, shiny skin, clogged pores and ace. Many factors can affect oil production, including stress, hormones and chemicals found in skin care products and cleansers.
Dry skin is a prevailing concern marked by uncomfortable feelings of itchiness, scaling, and harsh skin texture. Dryness can occur for many reasons and can also be affected by the weather, genetics or often by washing the face with the wrong products.
Sensitive skin is a prevalent condition that describes skin prone to irritation, redness and inflammation. 40% of clients report having sensitive skin and experience reactions to chemicals, fragrances and bacteria.
Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that affects people of all ages. Mostly appearing on the face, rosacea can cause pustules, redness and inflammation. It is essential to treat rosacea early on to prevent worsening symptoms.
Dark circles under the eyes are common and typically develop in combination with under-eye bags. Dark circles appear if the skin in the lower eye region is dull, pale or thin. Many factors can cause these conditions, including lack of care, weak skin structure, fatigue, age, genetics and sun exposure.
Hyperpigmentation is a harmless condition that appears as darker patches of colour in the skin. The discolouration occurs when melanin, the cells that produce the skin’s colour, overreact. Generally, hyperpigmentation can be triggered by an injury to the skin, unprofessional skincare treatments or hormonal conditions such as melasma.
Wrinkles are lines, creases and folds in the skin that will naturally show up with age. Most often, wrinkles appear where muscle contractions cause folds during facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. It is easier to prevent wrinkles in your twenties and thirties than to remove them later on.
