You look at your schedule – there are 10 Zoom meetings in the coming week. But your skin looks dull and marks from your recent breakout are still visibly there. You start worrying about how you are going to get your skin in shape for the coming meetings.
The scenario above is not uncommon nowadays. CoViD-19 has changed the way the world works. Working from home via Zoom meetings have become the new norm. How should our skincare routine change with this to achieve a subtle glow ahead of the next video conference?
1. Use a good keratinolytic
With age and free radical damage from the harsh environment, especially from UV, dead and devitalized epidermal cells can accumulate on the surface of our skin, leading to dull, tired looking skin.
By regularly using a gentle exfoliator like the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50T, you can gently rid your skin of the dead keratinocytes while the anti-inflammatory actives in the lotion helps to balance your epidermis to help serums and moisturizers penetrate.
2. Target your serums
Our skins are as unique as we are. The one-size-fits-all approach of cosmeceuticals is outdated, and serums designed to treat specific skin imbalances now allow skincare to be tailored and customized based on each of our unique needs.
The Biologique Recherche range of Quintessentail Serums does exactly this. By simplifying their serums down to amino acids or short peptides with a bare minimum of preservatives, they have brought customized skincare into our homes. Examples include the Serum Placenta which is a repairing serum that helps to reduce skin imperfections, lighten the eye contour area and restore epidermal elasticity and tone; the Serum Oligo-Proteines Marines which uses bio-marine complexes to energize and revitalize skin and help stimulate its natural functions to unify complexion; Serum A-Glyca which acts against the phenomenon of glycation which is one of the major factors of skin-ageing; Serum Extraits Tissulaires which moisturizes and revitalizes stressed skin and many more.
Choosing the right serums can bring your ageing dull skin back to life by targeting the exact problem-causing issue.
3. Apply a good moisturizer
A good moisturizer can not only help maintain the barrier functions of your skin; it can also add luminosity and keep your skin supple. Well-moisturized skin also helps make-up stay on better, without chapping and flaking.
Biologique Recherche has 2 moisturizers that live up to the standards of a good moisturizer. The Crème Masque Vernix reproduces the original composition of the newborn’s vernix – the first epidermal protective barrier at birth. It helps to recondition and strengthen deficient or stressed epidermis and is suitable for those in need of an intensive treatment to repair and replenish tired and damaged skin.
The Crème Amnios on the other hand is a refreshing and rejuvenating cream aimed at those with oily skin and suffering from unwanted shine. This mattifying cream contains extracts of amniotic fluid to revitalize, repair and tighten open pores by repairing, moisturizing and restoring elasticity of skin texture. This will help your skin maintain a smooth texture and healthy glow while you present away in your Zoom call.
4. Remember your pigment cream
Tired looking eyes can hugely affect your appearance, whether in-person or on-screen. As we age, one of the first areas to show signs are the skin in the area around our eyes. This is because the skin here is one of the thinnest, and any problems will show early.
With age, fine lines start to accumulate and elasticity of skin in the area starts to be lost. This gives rise to tired saggy eyes.
The Biologique Recherche Crème Contour des Yeux VIPO2 smoothes and tones the eye area by oxygenating and moisturizing the skin in the area to help reduce winkles and brighten the gaze.
5. Do not forget your eye creams
An attractive set of eyes has to be complemented by a healthy bush of eyelashes. AnteAGE is a brand known for its stem cell products and its foray into regenerative and rejuvenative products. Their lash serum is no exception. Packed with 12 hair growth factors, peptides, hydrating hyaluronic acid and biotin, the AnteAGE Overnight Lash Serum is definitely the right first step on your journey to thicker, more beautiful lashes.
6. Use an eyelash serum
For most patients, 1 session will suffice. However, depending on the method used, some patients may see early recurrence and may require further sessions for complete removal. If a mole is tested as cancerous however, a formal surgical excision with margins will be required.
7. Eye drops
There is always a risk of scarring from mole removal. This can be minimized by careful removal to avoid damage to surrounding skin during the procedure as well as good after care of the wound and scar.
The deeper a mole is, the greater the risk of scarring, even in the best of hands. In such instances, a partial removal may instead be attempted if the mole is deemed benign, or if complete removal is indicated, then a surgical excision with subsequent closure of the wound with stitches may be performed.
