The Digital Skin Care Mail Bag: Milia, Benzoyl Peroxide & Mustache Irritation

We thought it would be a great time to open up the skin care mail bag and take a closer look at some of the great questions our team of expert estheticians have received recently from the SkinReading blog, our Bioelements Facebook and Twitter pages, and even people who stop us on the street! You've got questions… we've got answers:

Q: Is there a way I can prevent milia from appearing on my skin?

A: Milia is formed when calcified sebum gets trapped by a covering of skin – often appearing on the cheeks, nose and chin. Keeping your skin smooth through regular professional Bioelements Custom Blend Facials will help keep milia at bay. Your esthetician will work with you to determine the best course of action to prevent milia – depending on your skin's condition. She will also recommend at-home exfoliation products to help prevent their formation. Try Quick Refiner, or Quick Refiner for Eyes (if you have them around your eyes).

Q: Should I apply benzoyl peroxide before or after moisturizer?

A: Benzoyl peroxide should be applied before your moisturizer, so the active ingredient can achieve maximum absorption. If applied during the day, don't forget your sunscreen afterwards! (Try: Breakout Control)

I would have never thought of using a toothbrush to get under facial hair. Great tip!
