LUMI announces new product to range - "Vitimin A - Repair Serum"

When it comes to skin, one thing’s for sure: our needs vary and our regimes are subject to change. Being the well-informed consumers that we are, we know quick fixes and one-size-fits-all skin solutions are the stuff of beauty legend.

With a plethora of products, ingredients and advice on offer, it’s hard to know where to start and what risks are worth taking when it comes to our skin.

Touted as a superstar for skin, Vitamin A, a treatment that works to diminish signs of ageing, combat acne and reduce sun damage, is one skincare solution that’s worth investigation.

Lumi "Vitamin A Repair level 2" is a product that actually works. Its  contains an unique product that delivers the Vitamin A directly to the dermis of the skin for maximum results.

All skin types benefit from vitamin A especially the non-sensitive, non-dry patient, oily combination and acne-prone or sun-damaged skin types benefit the most.

It’s also important to note that despite their proven track record, vitamin A preparations such as retinol are no all-in-one miracle cream that can substitute treatments already in your regime. These products should be used in combination with the other arms of skin care, namely preventative agents such as antioxidants and signalling agents such as peptides, stem cell technologies and DNA repair.

And if you’re looking to add a Vitamin A treatment to your skincare repertoire, timing it right might just save you unnecessary stress. Start in autumn or spring, as skin may be a bit sensitive to sun in summer months and then tends to be dryer in winter months. For best results, it’s ideal to use the treatment at night. It is a reparative preparation and night is a time for repair. Let it sit on the skin for some minutes before using any other preparations.

Squeezing Zits: Paperbag, Picker or Pro!

Geelong Acne Experts

 

Have you ever had a zit so big, it could have its own postcode? Or a huge blinder that could be mistaken for your twin? There are all sorts of reasons why we get pimples, and coming from a family of "excited squeezers" I have come to recognise that not all should be squeezed. Michelle Doolan who is one of our experts in skin has a few squeezing tips for you!

 

Hi Girls

There are so many myths out there regarding pimple popping I thought we would get right into the heart of the matter.

Does popping a pimple make it better or worse?

At first glance, that zit you have has a number of traits including compromised skin shedding, blockage of the pores and inflammation.

So given these circumstances, what will happen after you pop the zit? Well, you will create a mess and after that your skin will need to start the repair process.

Wounds heal in a series of steps. The bleeding must stop, inflammation starts to disinfect the area, this inflammation causes more cells will grow to replace the damaged ones and then finally the skin will begin to renew itself.

So, when you squeeze a zit, you immediately trigger more of the traits of acne, which include inflammation. Not only this but squeezing affects multiple pores located next to you target pimple to pop.

This leads us to another cause of acne. Premature breaking of a pore that is congested with excess oils and proteins. Busting such a pore promotes the inflammation response to remove the oils and proteins from surrounding tissues. Yes, this means more zits!

What we call the pustule is actually keeping the bacteria nice and contained.. When you puncture the pimple's outer skin, the bacterial infection oozes out. If the bacteria contained in that pus lands inside other pores, it can lead to more pimples.

There's another risk. Poke, pick, prick, and prod a pimple, and you can force the debris and bacteria even deeper into your skin. You may also introduce new kinds of bacteria from your finger into the zit. That can cause the pimple to become more red, inflamed, swollen and infected, and may even lead to permanent scarring.

Bottom line... It's best to let a pimple run through its life span.

Left alone, a blemish will heal itself in 3 to 7 days. Popped improperly, it can linger for weeks or even lead to scarring.

How Pros Pop Pimples

Dermatologists and well-trained estheticians know how to pop a pimple safely. They wear gloves and lance a pimple with a sterile needle, then remove the contents with an instrument called a comedone extractor.

So, popping a pimple is best left to the pros. But let's face it. Sometimes, it can be tough to resist the temptation to squeeze the pus out of that bright red zit on your cheek, chin, or nose.
