Acne around the lower half of the face from wearing a face mask, better known as ‘maskne’. We are seeing an increase in this because wearing a face mask is now mandatory to help minimise the spread of COVID-19. So, what causes it? Well, there are multiple factors. Humidity, friction, bacteria, dirt & makeup inside the mask all contribute and create the perfect environment on your skin for acne to develop. We are here to give you some tips on reducing the chance of developing maskne this Summer.
In this blog we are going to provide you with a more simplified explanation on what you should know on the subject of: Sunscreen. Yes, that lotion, spray, gel or other solution you decide to apply on your skin is our sole topic today. Please keep an open mind and most especially think about how often you use sunscreen and what goes into your decision-making when you choose to purchase a particular brand/type. Our clinics are constantly reviewing clinical data and keeping informed by the leaders in dermatology and cosmetic science which helps us form and confirm our view on the topic, but we would like for you to decide for yourself without too much of the same over-scientific explanations.
One of the most common questions from clients who visit a medical cosmetic clinic is — “What is the difference between the professional skin care products available at the clinic and those available at a supermarket or pharmacy?” The key difference is the kinds of ingredients that these products are allowed to include. In Australia, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) limits over-the-counter products to a certain number of active ingredients, with a limited potency. This is because products with high levels of active ingredients (known as “cosmeceuticals”) can permanently change the skin.

If you’re not investing in good quality, physical barrier sunscreen & using it 365 days a year, then there is not a lot we can do with skin treatments or injectables. To understand sun protection, it’s important that we understand the terms UVA, UVB & SPF rating. The sun emits 2 types of ultraviolet (UV) that reaches our skin: Ultraviolet A (UVA) & Ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA accounts for about 95% of the UV light that reaches our skin. It’s present all day long, all year round, whether its sunny, cloudy or raining. It’s the nasty rays that cause ageing!
"I’ve encountered many clients wearing long-wear, stay in place foundations over the years. The problem with these products is that they act as a film over the skin. It takes several cleanses to cleanse long-wear foundations off the skin thoroughly. Everyone should double cleanse makeup off regardless, but I’ve found I’m still cleansing twice that amount when trying to get these products off the skin. Residual makeup still comes out of the pores when going on to do a microdermabrasion treatment. This speaks for itself. It’s all about educating the client about these products & other alternatives that are healthy for the skin. It is our largest organ after all, & we need to take care of it. The other marketing ploy to be cautious of is “dermatologist tested”. They don’t give the outcome of the test. What was the result? What were they testing? Did the dermatologist approve of
