[Review] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

hi everyone!!! if you have troubled skin like me, here's another superrr popular Korean Beauty product for us to try! I;m sharing this review of a beauty blog that I like loads.... ==================================== Credit: raquelreviews.wordperss.com What she says: Even though this clay mask is formulated for troubled skin (oily, acne), it didn’t leave me with an even drier skin after washing the mask off! I honestly think that this might also suit people with dry skins With frequent usage, I felt that it helped me with my problem of clogged pores! Lesser clogged pores though you might get a few pimples the next day which will go away pretty quickly! It works as a spot treatment sometimes as well~ I’ve tried dotting a tiny amount of the clay mask on my red, angry pimples as an overnight treatment and the pimples subsided noticeably the next morning SOMETIMES. keke it didn’t work all the time but at least it didn’t worsen the problem. =p Unlike other reviewers, I didn’t feel any difference to my huge pores =/ I guess my huge pores problem is really too serious for the clay mask to help =/ Oh, do remember to use warm water instead of cold water for easier removal! ======================================== i havent used this before, but I think I wanna give it a try!

Why Do I Have Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects the oil glands and hair follicles. The pores in your skin are linked to glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. The glands and your pores are linked by a canal called the follicle, which contains thin hair that grows to the skin's surface. When sebum and dead skin cells combine, they form a plug in the follicle. The bacteria in the plug causes inflammation, which results in red inflamed acne and furthermore, acne scars What is the underlying cause of acne? Despite the fact that the exact cause of acne has yet to be determined. However, there are some things that can cause or worsen acne, such as: 1. Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all cause acne. 2. Squeezing or picking at existing pimples 3. Excessive cleaning or scrubbing of the skin 4. Weather with high humidity 5. When you use excessive amounts of cosmetics or experiment with them, as well as harmful hair products and oil-based products such as sunscreen. 6. Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids for body building. 7. Acne on the forehead is linked to dandruff in the hair. What are the signs and symptoms of acne? Everyone is unique, and so are their symptoms. As a result, different symptoms indicate different types of acne. As an example: 1. If you have blackheads, they are open, clogged pores on the surface of your skin. 2. If you have whiteheads, they are plugged pores close to the skin's surface. 3. If you have papules, these are small, tender red/pink bumps on your skin. 4. Pustules are papules with pus on top if you have them. 5. If you have nodules, which are large, painful lumps deep beneath the skin's surface, 6. If you have cysts, they can be painful, pus-filled lumps located beneath the skin's surface. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that can affect anyone, regardless of age. It is unquestionably a difficult condition to prevent and even more difficult to treat. Certain natural remedies, such as stress control and weight loss help tremendously. If you are suffering from acne do consider discussing it with your dermatologist. Medical science has advanced a lot in treating even the most severe forms of acne such as cystic acne and hormonal acne. You no longer need to suffer alone.
Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Lips are frequently left out of anti-aging discussions. Volume loss and wrinkles around the mouth, are some of the first signs of ageing. Our lips undergo a number of significant changes as they age. Most lips lose volume and definition over time. But smokers, those with lighter skin, and those who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to have lines and wrinkles. Lines can also be exacerbated by those who purse their lips when speaking. So, if your current lip care routine consists of swiping lip balm on chapped lips, there's definitely more you can do to to make your lips look fresh and youthful.  Lip Anti-Aging Serums and Balms The newer lip balms deliver anti-aging ingredients and hydration right where you need it. Look for one that includes a retinol derivative, a potent ingredient known for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots. The issue is that retinol can be irritating when applied directly to the lips, so make sure to moisturise thoroughly afterwards. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and intense hydrators like coconut oil are other ingredients to look for to make lips appear fuller. Within a few days, your lips will gradually plump up. Lip balms containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, softer pout.  The simplest anti-aging lip hack, however, is to remember that the skin around your mouth should be treated in the same manner as the rest of your skin. Apply a nightly serum there as well if you're applying it elsewhere. If you're going to smear sunscreen on your lips, use a chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of at least 30. To prevent damage from daily UV light, the skin around the mouth should be protected every morning with sunscreen and topical antioxidants, just as it would be in other areas. In the evening, use retinol, growth factors, and peptides to repair your skin.  Peels and Lasers  A quick laser zap or a chemical peel can help treat fine lines and pigmentation around the lips that do not seem to improve with topical treatments. The lines form because the muscles around the mouth constrict, folding the overlying skin. Lasers and peels can be used in the office to improve skin tone and texture while also reducing the appearance of lines. Skin lightening ingredients such as kojic acid or hydroquinone derivatives are also excellent choices for lip lightening as well. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the skin around the lips, stimulating collagen and elastic production. There is less downtime than with a laser or peel, and it is not melanin or pigment sensitive.  Lip Injectables Not all lip fillers are performed with the goal of creating Kylie Jenner lips. The lip's border, known as the "white roll," loses definition with age. Because you lost structure at the border, it is common for lipstick to bleed from the red part of your lip onto your skin. To restore volume and structure around the mouth, a filler is recommended. Over-treating the lip border can result in duck lips, but subtle treatments can help to distinguish the lip from the skin around the mouth.  Injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or the more subtle Volbella, can make the lips more defined and thus younger-looking without significantly changing their size. If you're more concerned about wrinkles and lines around your mouth, a few drops of Botox can also help soften and relax the muscles around your mouth. There is one small catch: you won't be able to purse your lips as much, and you may be unable to drink from a straw for a few months. If you can't give up your daily iced coffee, peels or lasers with your dermatologist may be a better wrinkle-fighting option for you. Source: Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Korean Summer Skincare Essentials
Even though its mid-August, summer here in Seoul is nowhere near over. We'll probably be hot and sweaty until the end of September * cries * So, I wanted to share some of my tips for using Korean beauty products to survive the weather :) What I mention: 1. SUNBLOCK Here in Korea there are a lot of different kinds of sunblock including a more watery 'essence' that you apply after your toner in the morning. It seeps into your skin and really helps protect you! 2. Aloe Vera I used this all the time as a kid who would get sunburned a lot haha In Korea you can buy it by the tub-full and drinkable aloe is also really popular! 3. Face Masks in the Fridge! We all know Korean face masks do amazing things for your skin, but for extra summer relief, through them in your fridge for a mini ice facial! The mask will be super cold and will feel soooo good! 4. Gel Eye Masks If you don't like putting product on your face, you should try gel masks that are just pickets of gel that you can either heat up or freeze and put on your face. My eye patches are really great when I have a head ache or I'm just too hot. 5. Clay Masks For Oil I don't really have oily skin, but in the summer even I get that unwelcomed shine. Clay masks really help get rid of that extra oil and calm down your pores. I have a volcanic clay mask that is amazing! 6. Foot Masks Normally when we think of skincare we think of only our faces, but your feet need love too! Especially durning summer when you're probably in sandals more - foot masks really help you out. Some are insane and totally make all your skin peel off, but some are tame and just moisturize your feet. You choose ;) 7. Face Mists Face mists are my life savers on a hot day. Just spray a little (my favorite is a sea water kind) on your face, your neck, your arms, and voila! You're suddenly cooled down, moisturized, and feeling like you can survive the day :) For more on my opinions and what products I used: What's your favorite summer skincare tip?
How to Prevent and Get Rid of Dandruff
Keeping your scalp healthy is important for the health of your hair. If your scalp is healthy your hair will be naturally strong, shiny and good-looking. You need to strike a good balance between shampooing and moisturizing your scalp to keep it healthy and dandruff free. Let's talk about how to keep away from dandruff, and even severe problems such as scalp dermatitis. What is Dandruff? Your scalp sheds dead cells just as much as your skin. But when it becomes too dry or inflamed, the upper skin cells start shedding even more. These dried skin cells start to flake and break into pieces. When you scratch your head, these flakes fall out in the process, which is called dandruff. This may simply mean that you need to moisturize your scalp or shampoo your hair. But sometimes, it's not just a bad hair care routine, but a more complicated condition called scalp dermatitis. Scalp dermatitis can occur with yeast over growth, over use of products and certain hormonal conditions. It can be treated with prescribed medication. You will need to consult a hair specialist. Causes of Dandruff * Oily scalp * Dry scalp * Yeast overgrowth * Unclean scalp * Allergy to hair products * Fungal Infection * Other skin conditions How to Get Rid of Dandruff? Dandruff can be caused by numerous conditions and unhealthy routines. You can control it at home by frequently washing your scalp with anti-dandruff shampoo. Make sure you wash daily for at least 2 weeks to see positive results. Your Dandruff Shampoo should include these ingredients: Zinc pyrithione Salicylic acid selenium sulfide Ketoconazole Coal tar How to Prevent Dandruff Wash hair frequently Wash your hair alternate days or at least every 2 days. Washing too often may dry out your scalp, and not washing frequently will make it oily. Oily skin traps dead skin and increases the chance of dandruff. Use Conditioner Use conditioner after every shampoo wash, to keep the hair moisturized. The shampoo cleans all the dust and oil and makes your scalp dry. So, use a conditioner to keep it stable and healthy. Sun Protection Sun can make your hair dry. So, try to keep it covered when you are going out on a sunny day. Or you can wash your hair with normal water after coming home. Diet for Healthy Hair Eat healthy home cooked food with lots of greens, proteins, nuts and seeds. This will ensure a healthy body, healthy scalp and prevent dandruff as well as hair loss. If your dandruff is persistant and silvery, you have red inflammed patches in your scalp or have painful boils please consult your dermatologist as you could be suffering from scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.
4 Must Have Ingredients For Healthy Skin
In the world of skincare newer ingredients are introduced almost every week. From snail mucin to placenta extract we're prepared to try them all in the search of flawless skin. While many of these ingredients may be a hit or miss, there are many others which are a sure shot at healthy skin. Here are 4 ingredients that top any dermatologists dream skin care list. Broad- Spectrum Sunscreen You might have heard this time and again, a broad spectrum sunscreen is the single most important skincare product that you can own. The UVA and UVB rays of the sun break down collagen and elastin proteins that keep your skin firm and plump. Besides they also induce pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Wear a sunscreen every single day to protect your skin against premature aging and sun damage. Ceramides Ceramides are lipid molecules in the uppermost layer of your skin. They form what is known as the skin protective barrier. It protects your skin from irritants and locks in hydration. Ceramides make your look healthy and glowing. They not only keep your skin supple and prevent sensitivity but also ensure younger looking skin. Retinol Retinol is one ingredient that can change everything about your skin. It is vitamin A which is popularly known for its skin-transforming benefits. Retinols help in speeding up the skin repair. It not only targets fine lines and sun damage but also relieves skin congestion and reduces pigmentation. If you are dealing with adult acne or wrinkles, then this is the superhero you must have in your vanity. Vitamin C Vitamin C is not just good for our immune system, but it’s a holy grail for glowing skin too. It is a great source of antioxidants, and aids in neutralizing the skin-damaging free radicals caused by exposure to environmental factors such as pollution. Vitamin C rich products work like a pro in fading dark spots and discoloration. As a dermatologist, I rely a lot on the power of these ingredients improve the skin for my patients. Talk to your dermat about including them in your daily skin care routine.
