Q: Do you experience moderate oiliness (limited to areas A and D), or does your oiliness affect your entire face?
A: AREAS A & D Regimen:
A: ENTIRE FACE Regimen:
Oily skin is characterized by skin that looks shiny and suffers from congestion. Shine and congestion can appear throughout most of the areas.
myths about oily skin
There’s no shortage of myths when it comes to oily skin. Get the facts to further your understanding of how to really keep oil under control.
Myth 1: Oil can be controlled by stripping skin with harsh, drying ingredients such as alcohol.
FALSE. Stripping the skin of oil can actually cause an overproduction of oil. Why? Because skin’s trying to make up for and replace what’s lost! Those who self-treat oily skin with alcohol-based products often end up with dehydrated, irritated, sensitized skin.
Myth 2: Sunscreens increase oil production.
FALSE. Speak with your professional skin therapist about new, sophisticated formulations that won’t clog pores, and even contain oil-absorbing microsponges for the ultimate in sun protection and skin care benefits.
Myth 3: A little sun exposure is ideal for drying up skin.
FALSE. Sun exposure is never good for skin. While it may seem the sun provides a temporary “drying” effect, sebaceous glands will fire into overdrive to help replace lost oil. The result: more oil on the surface than before.
MYTH 4: There’s nothing that can be done to help control oily skin.
FALSE! Don’t give up! An oily skin condition is just as manageable as any skin condition. Speak to a professional skin therapist who can analyze your skin, then provide a proper diagnosis including a regimen of products and lifestyle changes to keep skin under control.

the importance of exfoliation
Desquamation is the body’s natural process of exfoliation, or the shedding of dry, old, hardened skin cells so new cells can come to the surface. In an oily skin condition, desquamation can be slowed, as oily skin acts as a glue that holds dead skin cells to the surface. This can contribute to clogged follicles, leading to the build-up of acne bacteria which stimulates the production of breakouts.
Exfoliation is especially helpful to those with oily skin. In addition to smoothing, improving skin tone and enhancing skin’s receptiveness of oil-controlling ingredients, exfoliation helps rid oily skin of dulling skin cells to help keep skin clear.
Your exfoliation regimen will depend heavily upon your professional skin analysis performed by a skin therapist. A professional skin therapist may recommend exfoliating with physical scrubs or chemical exfoliants, or both to deliver the desired result, can advise you on how often to exfoliate, and how to successfully incorporate exfoliation into your regimen.

Q: Do you breakout regularly, or only periodically (once a month)?
Breakout-prone skin is characterized by breakouts on or under the surface. Whiteheads, blackheads, irritation, and redness can appear in all areas.
acnegenic ingredients to avoid in your skin care
You may have heard of comedogenic ingredients that cause or promote comedones in skin. You may not be as familiar with acnegenic ingredients – those that cause or exacerbate acne. These common ingredients can be hiding within acne treatment products, causing ineffective treatment of your breakouts.
Here’s what to look for:
do your laundry habits affect your skin?
There’s no shortage of myths when it comes to acne. Cut through the rumors and understand the facts to further your understanding of how to keep skin clear.
Myth 1: A blackhead is actually dirt inside the pore.
FALSE! Blackheads, known as open comedones, are simply whiteheads that have reached the skin’s surface, triggering oxidization upon contact with air. Oxidization makes the comedone change/darken in color (think how an apple turns brown after it’s been cut).
Myth 2: Sugary, refined foods contribute to acne.
This is actually a misinterpretation – these foods don’t directly cause acne, but they do feed the breeding ground for acne by exacerbating sebum production. Speak to your professional skin therapist to find out if your oil production is being triggered by specific food intake.
Myth 3: Sunscreens increase oil production and feed acne bacteria.
FALSE. Speak with your professional skin therapist about new, sophisticated formulations that provide sun protection with skin care benefits, including oil control and minimization of bacteria.
Myth 4: Stay away from fabric softeners.
TRUE! Try to stay away from use of fabric softeners on sheets and pillowcases. Beef lard and fragrance are the main ingredients, and they’ll coat your skin!
preventing acne on the body
Blackheads and whiteheads can appear anywhere on the face, chest, back, or even lower! Blackheads occurring on the body are most common in those with genetically oily skin. However, a person using comedogenic or acnegenic lotions or body care products can experience blackheads on the body.
Here are 6 tips to help control and prevent body acne:

What does it mean when you get spots on your lip, as your face mapping picture doesnt say
Adina B. (May 1, 2011)
Everything was nice explained.Only one think i would add .Explain when it comes to formation of a blackhead.It is mention it comes from a white head.A lot of people missunderstand the white head beeing a pustule w pus (infected already).
Everything said ,i would like to congratulate for this site because you are teaching as well selling the products.You would find customers buying the products but not actually knowing how to use.Will teach them to use it at home.Good job.
