Camellia Oil helps fight Adult Acne

Pride Magazine have tackled the issue of Adult Acne in this month's edition. Acne can be caused by excessive sebum production which exacerbates bacteria formation that collects in skin ducts thereby causing the acne.

Using Camellia oil as your skin care regime will help overcome the acne by readdressing the production of sebum. So whether your skin is naturally oily or dry it will help combat the effects by regulating the sebum.

A recent article by Dr Barbara Brockway in Guild News highlights the important role anti oxidants play in maintaining a healthy skin barrier function. Particularly those derived from Camellia oil. " We live in a fiercely oxidising atmosphere, which our cells are just about equipped to withstand.

Permanent and Temporary Hair Colours

Permanent and Temporary Hair Colours - the difference between. Permanenthair colours deposit permanent colour pigments inside the hair shaft. This is achieved by an oxidation process involving hydrogen peroxide to swell open the hair cuticle. The colour pigments then attach themselves to the natural pigments in hair. This is the basis of all permanent hair colouring. The colour result will then grow out so you will need to re-colour roots every 4-6 weeks or possibly more frequently depending on root regrowth. Temporaryhair colours deposit temporary dyes onto the hair shaft and then wash out over subsequent washes. Temporary colours can enhance natural hair colours or darken them. Temporary colours cannot guarantee grey cover. Temporary colours cannot lighten hair colour (because they d..
