Let’s open up the skin care mail bag and take a look at the excellent questions my team of skin care professionals and I receive from the SkinReading blog, our Bioelements Facebook and Twitter pages, and from skin care professionals across the country! In this edition, we’re talking about acne, sensitive skin and the best face primers. You’ve got questions… we’ve got answers:
Q: Can I use Bioelements Oxygenation if I have acne?
A: Yes. Oxygenation is a secret weapon for anyone (especially adults) that have acne! The hydrogen peroxide in this formula works to kill the p.acnes bacteria that leads to blemishes. It will also brighten and smooth the skin, without feeling greasy. Just layer on top of our spot treatment Breakout Control – it can be used morning and night.
Q: My skin is ultra sensitive and very dry. What should I use?
A: A moisturizer like Calmitude Sensitive Skin Moisturizer is specifically designed to soothe and calm your sensitive skin. You can give it an extra boost of hydration by first applying a serum like Moisture x10 or Stress Solution. Moisture x10 is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which binds 1000x its weight in water to your skin; Stress Solution will prevent moisture loss – it also provides extra soothing for sensitive skin.
Q: Does Bioelements have a face primer?
A: Bioelements has a couple products that work as ideal primers, including Recovery Serum – a ceramide and lipid blend that gives makeup longer wear and a smooth finish, and Stress Solution – which soothes skin with a sleek formula so makeup glides on.
