Damaged skin remedies


Sun Exposure

Exfoliating removes a superficial layer of the stratum Corneum, the topmost portion of the epidermis, which serves as protective barrier for the skin.

Once this layer is gone, skin becomes vulnerable to sunburn, wrinkles, sun spots and cancerous lesions. Both chemical and physical exfoliators can raise these risks, as can professional treatments like microderm abrasion and chemical peels, which penetrate deeper and remove even more skin cells.


Exfoliate at night so that while you sleep, skin has time to repair its barrier and replace the oils you’ve stripped away.

Be diligent about using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 everyday, and stop exfoliating 48 hours before you head off on a sunny vacation.

After going microdermabriason or a chemical peel, avoid at home exfoliators for 2 days, slather on the sunblock, and stay in the shade for 2 weeks.

Broken Capillaries

Harsh scrubs or even a too-rough wash cloth can cause microscopic tears in the skin and break blood vessel.


Using gentle pressure, apply facial scrub to wet skin with your hands or soft cotton pad.

Avoid scrubs that contain irregularly shaped particles such as fruit pits or crushed nut-shells, which can increase the risk of tearing. Instead, choose products made with fine synthetic grains.
Irritated, Itchy skin

Using two physical exfoliants together such as a scrub plus a facial puff or combining a physical one with a chemical one for example scrub followed by lotion with colic acid can remove too much the skin’s protective layer and increase sensitively.

Remedies: Use either a physical exfoliator or a chemical one not both at the same time.


Over-exfoliating strips away beneficial oils, making the pores secrete more of them.
Remedy: Use an over the counter treatment containing glycolic or salicylic acid or a scrub made specifically for acne-prone skin.

Post-waxing Damage

Some chemical exfoliators can weaken the bonds between cells, making it easier for wax to remove a deeper layer of skin.

Remedy: Stop using product that contains AHA or retinoid at least a week before the aesthecian aware of what’s in your skin-care regimen.

Getting Rid Of Wrinkles

When you’re in your mid-twenties chances are you tend to have signs of early aging. If you noticed a little changes of your face like lines, discolourations and broken blood vessels. Then you need these simple steps to maintain your beautiful, younger-looking skin.

Be a wise buyer

Be careful with the product you shop. Most anti-aging products are formulated for mature skin. Since you’re still in your younger years, the formula tends to be drier and thinner, and so it can be too heavy for the skin’s active oil glands. Instead try to look for oil-free moisturiser or lightweight gels or serum.

Sunscreen Ritual

It is advisable that if you use your product in the morning choose moisturiser with built-in sun protection, if not you could apply sunscreen over moisturiser so it can dilute the SPF in half. If you’re not going to use sunscreen daily, result is that anti-aging product can result you to be very ineffective.

Nourishing with nutrients

Be reminded that lightweight antioxidant-rich gels or serums will give your skin a dose of much-needed nutrients and help protect it from stress and environmental factors.

Take care of the eyes

One of the first areas to show signs of aging, the skin around the eyes needs extra hydration even if the rest of your face doesn’t.
Until next week. Stay fabulous
