perspiration-antiperspirants

Perspiration is a common feature of the human body – however, many people suffer from the side effects of perspiration like intense odour or even from intense perspiration by itself – very common on the underarm area, hands, feet and groins. To avoid general discomfort, there are many solutions in the market and we have chosen some for you depending on your requirements.

Perspiration – what is it

Perspiration is a physiological mechanism that helps to regulate the body’s temperature. It is an essential part of the thermoregulation mechanism, which controls the inner temperature according to what is happening inside the body and the outside conditions. Situations like intense exercising, stress, hot environments and spicy food have a tendency to induce the sweating process in order to balance the heat. The sweating glands, the ones responsible for producing sweat, can be divided in two categories: the ones that are located in the whole body and regulate skin humidity; and the other ones that are located in specific areas like the underarms and the genital area. These last ones produce a different type of sweat which promotes bacterial growth, inducing the unpleasant odour that is characteristic of sweating.

Facial cleansers: choosing the right one!

Facial cleansers: small steps for a perfect skin

skin-cleansing-b-terraWhether you are a man or a woman the first step on a daily skin care routine should always be to properly cleanse it.  Removing the dirt and dead cells that piles up on your skin can improve its appearance, get it ready to properly absorb any products that we apply afterwards, and also promote skin renewal.

Our skin is naturally subject to many aggressions on a daily basis: wind, cold, heat, rain, make-up, shaving, and the regular touch of our tainted hands. Choosing the right facial cleanser can help our skin regain its youthfulness and look healthier. Be sure to cleanse twice a day, in the morning and in the evening and chose products that are meant for your face and not body, the facial skin tends to be more sensitive, and some products that work great on our body can be harsh for the face.

The first thing to know when choosing your facial cleanser is which skin type is yours! Read our blog post on skin type to learn what is your skin type.

Every skin type has different needs that can be met by using an appropriate facial cleanser (lucky for us, there is a wide range of products available in the market). For example, if you have dry skin, you will want to stay clear from cleansers that might dry out your face and leave it unprotected. Oily skin, will have to clean not only the dirt and grime that piles up during the day, but also the excess sebum that it produces, still taking care that the chosen product will not strip away the natural skin barrier. Sensitive skin, will have to prefer products with the least ingredients possible avoiding anything that can cause irritation such as fragrances.

So let’s take a closer look at some of the options:

Soaps: It might seem like an obvious or practical choice to many of us, and although they are in fact quite effective cleansers, they also tend to remove the natural oils that are part of the skins natural barrier, and may leave your face dry, cracked and vulnerable.

Cleansing creams, lotions or milks: While removing the dirt from your skin, these products help keep it moisturized. For a dry or a sensitive skin these are usually the best options as they don’t dry out your skin.

Lierac Double Cleansing Micellar Milk Face&Eyes 200ml Avène Cleanance Hydra Soothing Cleansing Cream 200ml A-Derma Sensifluid Cleansing Lotion 200ml

Apply these products on a cotton disc, and make circular motions on your face and neck. Repeat as many times as necessary until the cotton appears clean.

Scrubs: Exfoliating the skin, removes dead skin cells that remain on the surface, making it soft and smooth, and also allows skin renewal to occur. It also helps promote the efficiency of products that are applied afterwards.

Lierac Gommage Douceur Exfoliating Cream Scrub 50ml Vichy Normaderm Triactiv 3-in-1 Cleanser Scrub Mask 125ml La Roche-Posay Ultrafine Scrub Sensitive Skin 50ml

These products should be used only once or twice a week, to prevent the skin’s protective barrier to be damaged from over scrubbing.

– Towelettes/Cleansing wipes:

Cleansing wipes are a good option for traveling, for midday cleansing and even for those days when you are just feeling lazy, they are convenient, easy to use and don’t require rinsing. However, they should not be your product of choice for a day-to-day use, as they generally have high amounts of preservatives, and can cause some allergic reaction.

Soapless cleansers/syndets: Ideal for Sensitive skin, they can accomplish the same as regular soapy cleansers, without containing ingredients that might be too harsh. Many of them will also help moisturize the skin, as they contain moisturizing ingredients and humectants (ingredients that absorb water from the environment and retain it in the skin).

No-rinse cleanser: There are many advantages to using these kind of products, other than time-saving, they are usually able to keep your skin moisturized and protected, sensitive skin might benefit from the removal of the rinsing step as it tends to always involve some degree of exfoliating.

Sesderma Sensyses Cleanser Atopic 200ml Bioderma Sebium H2O Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution w/Pump 500ml JOWAÉ Micellar Cleansing Water 400ml

There are also specific products for cleansing and removing make up from the eyes, which are formulated in order to prevent irritations. Indicated for sensitive eyes and for contact lens users.

Sesderma Sensyses Eye Makeup Remover 100ml Lierac Démaq Yeux Double Care Eyes&Eyelashes 100ml La Roche-Posay Toleriane Make-Up Remover Face&Eyes 30x 5ml

Now that you know a bit more on how to choose your daily facial cleanser, here are a couple of tips to follow before starting your routine:

Get your hair off of your face (use a headband or clip) and wash your hands. There is no need to transfer any bacteria from your hands to your face, they are probably much dirtier than your face. 😊

 

Myths

Men’s skin: should you be a slave to the label?

30 January 2018

 

Is there really a difference between men’s skin and women’s?men's skin ages differently from women's

Today, the cosmetic market is flooded with options for both men and women. Whether you need a moisturizer, a facial cleanser or even a product to fight those ageing signs that insist on popping up, the stores will always have a product or combination of products to sell to you. But is there really a difference when choosing a product for a man or a woman?

First of all, let’s analyse the differences in the skin of each gender:

Men vs. Women

Hormones

At a hormonal level, we are well aware that the main difference between men and women are the levels of Testosterone and Estrogen.

The sebum/oil production of the skin is influenced by these hormones, being increased by higher levels of Testosterone, or supressed by higher levels of Estrogen.

In general, this means that men are more likely to have oily skin and be prone to adult acne.

pH

The skin’s natural pH can range from 4 to 7 in the pH scale (measures levels of acidity or basicity), being the estimated average of 4.7.

Comparing the skin of both genders, Women tend to have an average pH of 5.6 while Men have an average of 4.3. This means that Men’s skin tends to be more acidic than women’s and closer to the healthier value of just below 5.

Keeping a balanced pH of the skin is important to control moisture and protect the skin from dangerous microorganisms.

Thickness

Another clear difference of a male skin is that it is thicker and more enduring. This is related to the amount of collagen produced in the dermis (the middle layer of the skin), which is higher in a male skin. Collagen is part of the skin’s structure, providing it with strength and elasticity.

Sensitivity

Regular shaving also leads to an increased sensitivity of the male’s facial skin; however, it can also have an exfoliating effect(a common step in anti-aging routines).

All of these together (unfortunately for the ladies) means that men’s skin tends to age slower than women’s. However, skin aging is not only dependent on genetics, but it is highly influenced by the environment and behavior.

men's skin ages differently from women's

So let’s do a quick analysis on this last factor.

Behavior

In general, men are more likely to be exposed to the sun, due to work or leisure activities, it is more common for this gender to spend larger portions of time in the sun. And even though women’s skin is thinner and more prone to suffer with the harmful sun radiation, their daily routine is more likely to include sun protection. (This difference in behavior actually puts men at a higher risk of developing skin cancer.)

Also regarding a daily routine, women tend to be more concerned and cherish their skin as a whole, taking care of the body as well as the face, carefully choosing daily moisturizers for the face and the body as well as cleansers. Men on the other hand, mostly just feel the need to moisturize the face and as far as cleansing goes usually just grab whatever is at hand.

How to buy?

So what about the products? Are woman’s products strictly for women and vice versa?

Due to these general differences, products are studied and marketed to come upon the needs of each gender, taking in consideration usability, texture, scent, packaging etc… But is it really necessary?

In spite of the general genetic or behavioral variations, some women can also present oily skin, some man can have dry skin, not all women take the time for a full cosmetic routine, and men have grown more and more concerned with their skin care.

Whether you were born male or female, the important thing is to choose the right products for your skin type, your needs, and that you feel comfortable with. 😊

Tips

What is the best anti-aging product for me?

23 January 2018

Antiaging cosmetics are all the rage, and therefore almost all brands have a great array of options, but how do you choose the best anti-aging product for you? We’re here to help and give you some tips on how to choose the best products for you, according to your needs.

best-anti-aging

The best anti-aging according to your needs

The first thing you need to consider is your skin needs. Brands and even our website commonly use age as an indicator for which creams you should use, but age is just that – an indicator. The real thing you need to take into consideration is your skin’s needs. This is due to the fact that each person has their own individual set of characteristics that is also affected by the surrounding environment. People with dry skin tend to have wrinkles earlier than those with oily skin, people who are intensely subjected to sun exposure have deeper wrinkles and suffer from loss of firmness, people who spend their days surrounded by air conditioning tend to have very dehydrated skins which will get wrinkles more easily… a whole set of things that you have to take into account when choosing the best anti-aging product for you. After checking your skin, see which of these categories you skin fits:

  • First wrinkles – the skin starts to show the first signs of aging, like fine lines and expression lines. The ranges for first wrinkles tend to be very focused on prevention of aging, with ingredients to hydrate the skin, fight oxidative stress and prevent loss of firmness. Look for ranges like Lierac Hydragenist and Vichy Idéalia or check our whole selection for first wrinkles here.
  • Deep wrinkles – your skin has marked wrinkles and several fine lines that do not disappear if you rest. Usually, retinol and glycolic acid are kings amongst deep wrinkle correction and you can find them in ranges like Sesderma Acglicolic or La Roche-Posay Redermic, but you can also choose by yourself by browsing all our products for deep wrinkles here.
  • Loss of firmness – this is very common on people who have mature oily skin or who have lost a great amount of weight (to prove that this has really nothing to do with specific ages). The facial contours tend to lose definition and the skin lacks firmness and elasticity. Here peptides are the unsung heroes of fighting loss of firmness and you can also count on collagen boosters like vitamin C. Lierac Lift Integral and La-Roche Posay Substiane are very effective, but we also suggest you browse our selection for firmness here.

Take your skin type into consideration

It’s really not enough to just have your aging needs into consideration when buying an anti-aging product. Also, please consider if you have dry, normal, combination or oily skin. This is important because most ranges offer more than one option with the same active ingredients, but different textures. Some of them are very easy to understand, as the one for oily skin will state that things like “fluid”, “matt” or “gel”, and the one for dry skin will have “rich”, “nourishing” or “balm”. However, some of them are not so easy to understand, like the Lierac Premium range which has The Voluptuous Cream for dry skin and The Silky Cream for normal to combination. Always choose the one that fits your skin type to get the best results off of your skincare routine.

13 December 2017

team_choiceAnother year has passed and here at Care to Beauty we’ve decided to pick our favorite products from 2017. After a round on our headquarters where we may have menaced some of the team members to make them pick their favorite product, we bring you a list of our picks from 2017.

Our team’s favorite products

ana_choiceAna’s sensitive skin just loves the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel. This lightweight serum with cucumber extract is the perfect companion for every routine, especially if you have dehydrated skin. Just apply it after cleaning the skin and follow with your usual routine for a deeply hydrated skin without any greasy feeling.

silvia_choiceSílvia loves to try all the body lotions on the premises and she is loving the new JOWAÉ Revitalizing Moisturizing Lotion. With a very fresh scent and a lightweight formula, this lotion is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and replenished.

joana_choiceIf you need a Lierac lover, Joana is there for you. Therefore, the new Lierac Hydragenist Moisturizing Rescue Mask is just what she was waiting for from her favorite range – a deeply hydrating mask that helps to smooth fine lines. The best companion for those cold and harsh winter days.

madalena_choiceRoger & Gallet is one of our newest brands here at Care to Beauty, but the Roger&Gallet Fleur De Figuier Fragrant Wellbeing Water has already won Madalena’s heart with its fresh and vibrant scent. Isn’t it lovely when you are able to find your perfect signature scent?

filipe_choice.pngFilipe has hit a major success with his girlfriend when he offered her ISDINCEUTICS Skin Drops Fluid Foundation SPF15 – a match made in heaven, for sure. The adapting coverage of this foundation makes it ideal for those who like to use a lightweight foundation sometimes, but require a higher coverage for special occasions. The buildable coverage can go to as much as covering up tattoos.

rui_choice Rui immediately strikes you as a very practical man, so it is no surprise that his favorite is Sesderma DRYSES Deodorant Antitranspirant Roll-On Men. Perfect for very active people who hit the gym a few times a week, this roll-on is one of our bestsellers in the deodorant category for its ability to prevent odor and for its giant size that lasts forever.

diana_choiceMartiderm has been a success everywhere, including in our office. Diana has fallen head over heels in love with Martiderm Proteoglicanos SPF ampoules, as they are the ideal match for combination skin that needs oomph. She has reported that her skin looks brighter and younger, with no oily residue whatsoever.

monika_choiceMonika’s dry and sensitive skin is the ultimate test for products – if her skin doesn’t overreact and gets hydrated, then the product is a winner. And what a success Bioderma Hydrabio Sérum has been. The light serum is able to deeply moisturize and repair her skin without getting so much as a hint of redness.

bruno_choice.pngBruno has been a long time lover of Terre d’Hermès and was delighted to discover that NUXE Men Multi-Use Shower Gel had the exact matching scent. This luscious shower gel for man has a very woody and masculine scent and is the perfect small gift for the men in your life.

jorge_choiceTo describe Jorge as an outdoorsy guy is a bit of an understatement. And as it is expected with people who like to be doing radical sports and sailing boats as a hobbie, a few minor hazards are bound to happen. This is how he found out that Bioderma Cicabio Crème is his best friend, as it is able to heal sunburns and minor injuries and help to get rid of any discomfort.

andre_choice.pngAndré was working with us for less than one month when he asked the team for a good sunscreen to take on vacations – he has since never stopped using ISDIN Fotoprotector Gel-Cream SPF30 as it is now his favorite sunscreen of all time. Oh, the difference it makes to use a higher quality sun protection!

ricardo_choiceSince NUXE arrived it has conquered many of our customers, but our team is no different. Ricardo is another one of the guys who likes the shower gels, but this time it’s NUXE Prodigieux Shower Oil. And believe us, he’s one of those difficult guys to convince to use anything, so if this has worked, it has to be truly magic.

Tips

Planning a winter holiday? Don’t forget these 6 products!

04 December 2017

Christmas time is approaching… making it the best time for a snow trip!

winter holiday

So what are the essential products to take in your cosmetic bag?

Winter is coming… and during this season our skin is subject to harsh weather conditions making it more sensitive and prone to redness and irritation. Your usual products may not work as well as they do during other seasons, and you might need to adjust.

Body moisturizer

Harsh cold weather can easily cause your skin to dry. The cold air is devoid of humidity, so it is able to dry out our skin’s natural oils. You can choose between oils, creams or lotions, depending on your tolerance to a greasier feel, but remember the ones with the heavier textures tend to better trap the skin’s moisture. Avoid products that contain alcohol (it can be the case of some lotions), although it might help the product to be quickly absorbed by the skin, it will also cause dryness. Preferably look for products adequate for sensitive skin, that will help sooth itching and irritation.

Shower “gel”

Today you can easily find in the market, a variety of bath products formulations. Although commonly called “shower gel”, nowadays you also have available shower creams and shower oils. These 2 options will help nourish and keep the moisture of your skin even while bathing, they are usually more suitable for sensitive or irritated skin.

Hand and Feet moisturizers

hands - winterAlthough you will be accompanied by your boots and gloves for the most of it, your hands and feet will also feel the downside of your “cool” holidays. Choose heavier creams for your hands and feet to help lock in your skin’s natural moisture.

Face moisturizer

In addition to making the skin dry, harsh cold winds can also have their consequences. They can make cracks in the surface of the skin or lead to windburn (the friction of the wind directly on your skin can cause as much damage as a sunburn, leaving your skin red, wounded, blistered and even cause it to peel). Choose a moisturizer with a thick texture, it can also act as a barrier to protect your skin from the winds, while being able to maintain your skin’s natural moist. If your daily routine involves anti-aging products you might want to temporarily switch to softer unscented products, leaving out ingredients that exfoliate the skin such as AHA, salicylic acids or retinoids.

High SPF sunscreen

It is wrong to think you only need to protect yourself from the sun in hot/warm weather. Even in cloudy days we are exposed to about 80% of the UV rays. During your ski adventure, your sun exposure risks are increase by 2 factors:

  • The intensity of the UV rays is higher according to your altitude, being 35%-45% higher in the mountains comparing to sea level.
  • The white surface of the snow reflects much of the solar radiation, increasing its intensity about 80%!!

So, for that snow trip you have been planning, don’t forget your sunscreen, choose one with high SPF and reapply at least every 2 hours.

Lip balm

Lips are always more sensitive to climatic changes and should be treated with the proper care all year round. During winter, lips are always the first to feel the consequences of harsh cold weather, they will get dry and crack easier, so choose a product that will moisturize and protect but will also have a high sun protection factor (SPF).

Keep your lip balm with you at all times, as you will need to apply it quite often ???? .
