 Pillowcase weekly  hygiene

Beddings

Do you want to have flawless facial skin and glow? then you need to keep in mind that your beddings should be a very big part of your skincare routine. You buy the good products, spend lots of money and lay your head on a dirty pillowcase, well you aren't getting anywhere with that, which brings us to the big question could your pillowcase be a contributing reason to your acne?

And if you think washing your sheets once a week is excessive, wait till you hear how frequently you are supposed to wash pillowcases.


Perhaps you picked at a pimple, underwent surgery, or scraped your knee. Now you're left with a scar–an unsightly reminder of the skin injury–and you wish it would fade away soon.

Therefore, let us examine how a scar forms. Then it will be clear how to minimize the appearance of a scar.


What Causes the Formation of a Scar?

When your skin is injured, your body heals in four distinct phases:

Hemostasis is the process of forming a blood clot in order to halt the flow of blood.

Inflammation develops as a result of the body producing chemical signals at the site and the area's blood vessels dilate. This brings nutrients and inflammatory cells into the wound to aid in healing.

New blood vessels develop during the proliferation phase to replace injured ones. This is referred to as angiogenesis.

This brings nutrients and inflammatory cells into the wound to aid in healing.

Fibroblasts migrate to the wound site and secrete collagen, the proteins that give the growing scar tissue its shape (initially called granulation tissue). Collagen accumulation generally peaks three weeks into wound healing. Additionally, 

The ultimate process is remodelling (or maturation). During this time period, granulation tissue develops into scars. Changes in the wound region allow the collagen fibres to lay closer together, resulting in a thinner scar. The scar's strength reaches its greatest level at the conclusion of this collagen organization process, which takes about six months. When the amount of collagen in the skin is insufficient, the remodelling process may result in a concave, or pitted, scar. If there is an excessive amount of collagen, a raised scar may result. The scar may take up to two years to mature completely. This is frequently measured by the degree of redness resolution in the scar tissue.

Rosehip oil has been utilized for millennia by Native Americans and ancient civilizations such as the Mayans and Egyptians for its therapeutic qualities. Its reputation as a key component for a radiant complexion has increased in recent years.

Let's go deeper into the uses and advantages of rosehip oil and why you may want to incorporate it into your beauty routine as well.

What Is Rosehip Oil Used For?

Rosehip oil is extracted from the fruit of the rose shrub, the rosehip. The fruit resembles a bulb that develops now at the base of a blooming rose blossom. The rosehip continues to develop when a flower falls off.


The biggest organ in the human body, the skin, is continuously exposed to the environment. What is going on inside us is reflected in our skin. Because the skin is made up of cells that are continually regenerating, you must eat the appropriate nutrients to keep your cells healthy. Use nutritional supplements to add radiance to your skin, especially during the summer. 5 ways to help your skin stay radiant all the time 

All cells require vitamins and minerals to replicate and repair DNA in the case of damage. Keep in mind that you are exposed to solar radiation while outside in the sun. To deal with the damage produced by continuous sun exposure, your cells require proper nutrition. Here are 5 nutritional supplements to help you keep your skin looking beautiful and glowing at all times.



Biotin
Biotin, often known as vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that aids in the production of glucose, a sugar that provides energy to cells. It is also in charge of amino acid metabolism and fatty acid synthesis in order to keep the structure of skin cells intact. Dry, flaky skin, redness around the eyes, nose, and mouth, and hair loss are all symptoms of low biotin levels.

Antibiotics and medical conditions might prevent nutrients from being absorbed in the intestines, resulting in biotin deficiency. Biotin levels can be raised with the aid of supplements. A daily dose of 5 mg of biotin can assist restore normal biotin levels by helping your skin cells to generate lipids that protect them from inflammatory damage from the environment.

I decided to change my body cream in summer and I am loving the feeling. The body cream I use in winter was a bit heavy for my skin in summer so I switched to Mixa intensive care dry skin. Tho on this cream it is written Rich body milk, intense nourishment, dry and very skin but it suits the weather perfectly. I wanted a cream that won't make my skin or so oily. It suits my skin in summer but in winter it will be too dry for my skin. The effect lasts for 24hrs as it nourishes your skin intensively to prevent dryness. 

 Menopause brings about a variety of changes to your skin, one of which is breakouts. You may be curious as to why this is happening and what you can do about it.

During menopause, many women experience changes in their skin. For some women, this means dry skin, age spots, or a bruising tendency. Others see a decline in estrogen levels while male hormone levels, such as testosterone, stay constant, resulting in acne breakouts.

What is dry skin

Because of its high water content, normal skin is smooth and elastic. A minimum of 10% water must be present in the top layer of skin for it to feel soft, flexible, and "normal." Sebaceous glands in the skin generate an oily material called sebum to help prevent the outer layer of skin from losing water. Sebum is a complex combination of fatty acids, sugars, waxes, and other natural compounds that act as a water-repellent barrier. When the skin lacks sebum, it loses moisture and feels dry. The skin will shrivel and crack if environmental factors cause more water evaporation and overwhelm the sebum's ability to prevent water loss.



Xerosis, or dry skin, is a widespread issue in modern society that affects people of all ages, including babies. Most occurrences of dry skin in the United States are caused by one or more of the following factors:

Excessive bathing or showering, excessive scouring of the skin when washing, or harsh soaps that dissolve the protective layer of sebum are all examples of lifestyle factors that promote sebum loss. In certain situations, especially among school athletes who wash multiple times a day, the outcome is dry skin all over the body. In other situations, dry skin exclusively affects the hands, such as in health care professionals, food handlers, house cleaners, homemakers, moms with diapered children, and others who wash their hands regularly.

Extreme environmental circumstances can overcome the skin's natural protective barrier, which causes water to evaporate. This is a major cause of dry skin in those who live in sun-drenched desert conditions, particularly in portions of the Southwest in the united state of America.

Reduced sebum production — Because the number and activity of sebaceous glands in the skin tend to decrease with age, this is frequently a factor in the elderly.

In the northern United States, dry indoor air can also induce dry skin and "winter itch," especially in those who utilize forced-air heating systems. Frequent exposure to wind and sun among outdoor athletes can drain water from the skin, leaving it uncomfortable and dry. Because the chemical composition of pool water pulls moisture from the body, even swimmers might have dry skin.

Dry skin is a common complaint among diabetics and those with skin allergies (atopic dermatitis). It can also be a sign of hypothyroidism, renal failure, or Sjögren's disease in rare cases. Furthermore, dry skin can occur as a side effect of many medications, particularly topical acne treatments.

Symptoms

Itching might be the only sign of dry skin, but most individuals will also notice that their skin is flaky and wrinkled more than usual. During the winter, dry skin symptoms may intensify, especially if you spend a lot of time indoors, where the heated air is dry.
A good skincare routine that doesn't disturb your skin so much can help skin problems and also delay the natural aging process. 

1. Protect your skin from the sun

Protect it from the sun. It is one of the most important ways to cake for your skin. Sun exposure causes wrinkles, age spots, and other skin problems — as well as increases the risk of skin cancer.


To protect your skin from the sun you sun protection:

Use sunscreen. Protects Your Skin from UV Rays. The depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from harmful UV rays. Sunscreen blocks these rays, greatly reducing the likelihood of sunburn, wrinkles, and damage to skin cells.



Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun's rays are strongest. #mayoclinic

Use hats


Use sunglasses



Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays. #mayoclnic




Finding the right cream formula for your skin type takes time sometimes. When skincare awareness became a song on the media I didn't really focus on it. I used any product with beautiful labels and nice scents but the result started to play out sooner than I never expected. I use to just walk into any store and purchase any cream, I didn't know the importance of sticking to one product that works well on my skin.

I started battling with dry skin and it started to give me concern. I wanted to find a product that will work on my skin, I also wanted a product I can get at any time without having to preorder, or plan so much before purchasing. When making a particular product your product of choice accessibility should always be put in check.

MAY face маска для обличчя Очищуюча bubble mask



I couldn't perform my weekend facial routine because I was so busy. Today I will be sharing a brand I have used before but with a product that is slightly different.

Honestly, there is no difference in effect between the May face wowi oxy bubble facial mask and this bubble 02 oxygen mask. The only difference is that the oxygen mask foams more bubbles than the wowi mask.

If you would like to know more about the mayface facial mask read on.


According to the brand: Oxygen mask MAYFACE is designed to thoroughly care for your skin. It is formulated with milk proteins for intense hydration and softening. Liquorice root extract quickly and permanently soothes the skin, relieves redness and smoothes peeling. After application, oxygen is released from the active agent and turns the composition into a thick foam. The mask promotes deep cleansing of the skin, minimizing pores. The oxygenated product helps to facilitate cellular respiration, improves skin elasticity and rejuvenates it.
Тканевая маска с экстрактом кокоса Bonnyhill Coconut Mask Pack.

I am having a lazy Saturday. I was working on the blog, I needed to fix somethings and so I ended up going to bed very late. My Saturday routine is a must so I got up and applied my facial mask.

Today I am using the Bonnyhill coconut moisturizing mask pack. The mask isn't so fitted on my face but it is better than a lot I have used in the past. When I applied the mask on my face it felt cold. It is said that coconut oil is easily absorbed into the skin, provides moisture and nourishment which the skin needs. Tho, generally it helps to keep the skin healthy.


The instruction on the mask says: After using your face, use a toner to prepare your skin. Apply the mask sheet on your face leave it for 10-20 mins and pat leftover essence lightly until fully absorbed.

What I did: After applying the masking for about 20mins, I remove the facial mask and use the sheet to scrub my face, slightly massaging my face to increases blood circulation.

COLLAGEN FACE MASK "RED GINSENG EXTRACT" VIA BEAUTY FACE COLLAGEN MASK.


I had a very stressful week, I did a lot of impromptu things that affected my mood and appearance. I am happy I can finally sit down and share the beauty mask I am using this weekend. As I write, my eyes are swollen with eye bags. I have been itching to use a mask before I start breaking out due to the extreme stress.

Today, I am using the Viabeauty collagen series.

It is a beautiful Saturday morning and I am excited to start my Saturday facial routine. Using a mask has become one of the most effective and easy ways to keep my skin glowing and acne-free. During weekdays I stress a lot and stress easily shows on our skin. Stress increases cortisol production from the adrenal glands, which in turn increases sebaceous gland activity, to produce more oil and sebum which is not healthy for our skin.



Using the facial peel-off mask to correct the outcome of stress on my skin is very effective and can be done twice every week. In today's beauty mask Saturday session, I am using the bio gold cleaning film mask by via beauty.


This gold mask by Via beauty helps to cleanse, narrow the pores and smoothes the skin giving it freshness. Bio-gold acts as a unique conductor of nutrients, helping them to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, increasing the speed of cell division, stimulating the production of natural collagen. The mask gives the skin a younger look while eliminating wrinkles, it saturates the skin with moisture and oxygen, activates cellular processes. After the first application, the skin looks more fresh and toned.

Good morning from this part of the world. I woke up, said a little prayer and I am up and thankful for being alive. I woke up to a bit of dry skin but it is Saturday and just like I wrote in my previous article about the bubble mask, I started a weekly routine to use facial mask twice every week and so far I have been keeping to that.

Todays, face mask introduction is the Cleansing peel-off *Star* mask which has a unique combination of amazing brilliance and spectacular effect. Deeply cleanses the skin, unclogs and tightens pores, and reduces sebum production. It contains bioactive charcoal which absorbs impurities and toxins, leaving skin clean and naturally matt.

RATE THIS MASK FROM 0-5, with 5 being the highest.


I just added a beauty bubble face mask to my beauty routine. I am trying not to push my face too hard but the product reviews keep coming in and I get to wear makeup more often these days. Well, I tried a mask that I like. I didn't know what to expect at first but I liked the after effect and feeling on my skin.






Taking care of your skin is more than just not applying makeup. During this lockdown, there are lots of factors that can influence your skin appearance. I am busy during this lockdown but I try to take good care of my skin even when I decide not to bath very early in the morning since I am not going out.

My lockdown daily skincare routine.

1. No makeup all day, only when needed
Morning
I Clean my face with wet wipes
Wash my face and apply very little coconut oil with Nivea cream moisturizer.

I Take my bath by noon. I apply very little coconut oil and Nivea cream moisturizer.

At night I clean my face and apply Nivea cream moisturizer.

2. Eating good food can help your skin.
I love eating and during this lockdown, I eat in between meals but that isn't so good. It is good to eat healthily and avoid eating late at night. Simple carbohydrates like the refined sugar found in most cakes, cookies, candy, and non-diet soft drinks cause insulin levels to spike and create a wave of inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation leads to a breakdown in collagen and elastin, the fibres that give skin its elasticity and strength.



3. Stress and depression caused by restricted movement, less activeness at home and fear.
Are you aware that stress is a big enemy to our skin because stress tells a lot on our skin? As humans, when we stress, it causes our body to produce hormones like cortisol, which signals glands in our skin to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Stress can also Make skin problems worse. Just try to relax your mind and enjoy the moment, do something that makes you happy, be positive and stay active at home. Part of my skincare routine is staying happy.

Everyone's skin is different and unique. Not every skincare products recommended by another person might work for you so it is better to study the skincare market and know what works for you before purchasing at random. I haven't struggled with my skin and for long, I can't remember the last time I had a proper skin break out. Just go with the flow but make sure your skin is dirt-free at all times. We are all home and very relaxed, but that doesn't mean we should ignore our daily skincare routine. Whether you go out or not your skin produces oil and also dirt and dust settle on your skin which can cause break out and other skin problems if you do not wash and clean your face properly. 


I use a few products which include Goli nutrition supplements which I will be reviewing soon and how it has helped my skin so far. I am not all about the perfect skin, I am not freaked about having the best skin, I do my best by taking care of my skin and I try not to disturb my skin with lots of products. Some people use almost every product they read about online or see a YouTuber review. Trying out products isn't bad but not all products are going to work for your skin so I recommend that you visit a dermatologist if you are facing severe skin issues for guidance, proper medication and product prescription to avoid making mistakes. Tho, there are products you can try on your own but make sure you read the content of any product before using it if you do not know about a particular ingredient check for it online. 

Just so you know most high branded beauty moisturizer, wipes, facial oil, mask and all are made with almost similar ingredient so sometimes a 20$ beauty products can actually work just like a $50 beauty product. Learn to survey the beauty market and read before investing in some beauty products.
Anyone visiting Nigeria yet? well whether you are visiting or you are living in Nigeria you need to get the Isana white body creme. Nigeria happens to have one of the best weather conditions I have ever experienced. We have different seasons which includes the rainy season and dry season. We are currently experiencing the rainy season which is not my favourite season. Some states experience heavy rain pour while some experience mild rain pour. I am currently in Abuja which experiences heavy rainfall and sunshine. When it is not raining, the sun is all out playing and so due to the weather change the type of body cream you use on your skin is very important.


Talking about moisturizers I haven't really used a lot because I try to narrow the kinds of products I use to brands that are more trusted and contains the right contents in its correct proportion. I was Introduced to this facial moisturizer by a friend and it became a game-changer. I hardly pay attention to my skin but recently more efforts have been channelled into mild skin routines and the outcome his worth sharing. 

Routine: I wash my face with a mild baby soap or face wash. I allow my face to dry with natural air and after drying I apply the Ziaja moisturizing cream cocoa buttercream. Massage the cream in a delicate way.


Ziaja Light formula cream with Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E: (I recommend for dry skin). This happens to be my favourite product from the brand. This face cream is very useful and this brand has different products that I use. I might not be able to review or share them on my platform but you can find them online and at any cosmetic store near you. Cocoa butter is generally good for the skin as it nourishes the skin because it contains antioxidants. It provides the skin with beneficial nourishing elements that keeps the skin moist and bright all day.

Revitalization: After night wash, I apply it to my skin and in the morning my skin looks healthier and smoother, there is a general improvement on the appreciate of my skin. It reduces skin irritation but does not exactly remove spots. If you have spots in starts looking faded but after long use of this face cream. This product is also said to help prolong a natural tan.


At this point sometimes price doesn't really make a good product. I have shared some reviews about beauty products that are good and some really bad and here is another product which you might want to try, the MAY body deodorant sensitive female spray. This deodorant and antiperspirant have a mild and sensitive feel. Not harsh and has an oily feel when you apply it but leaves you dry all day. I have used good products from MAYbody and this Ukrainian beauty guru is making good products available to everyone.
