Choice tips I got from Paula

I learned many things during the event of Paula's Choice Philippines, to share:
  • #1 beauty secret- wear sunscreen. UVA kills skin cells so you need spf 30 or higher.
  • Beauty starts with good health. Could not agree more.
  • Stop vigorously scrubbing your face, it causes lines and wrinkles.
  • BHA is good for acne. It is from salicylic acid or aspirin. Start at 2% for it to be effective.
  • AHA is good for fairer complexion. Acid  from 3 fruits- malic/apple, tartaric/grapes, citric/lemon, plus lactic/milk, glycolic/sugar cane. Start at 5% for it to be effective.
  • Acne is caused by pores that are not clean and bacteria [and accumulation of dead skin cells.]
  • The correct exfoliant should match the skin ph, and even with everyday use, will not make the skin ultra sensitive or 'thinner', with veins showing underneath.
  • Physical sunscreens are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide and leaves a white cast.
  • Chemical sunscreens are those that absorb UV rays and can enter the bloodstream  like oxybenzone.
  • Whatever is applied in the skin first is absorbed more. For example you spot treated your acne, afterwards put on moisturizer. Then the acne medicine is absorbed more.

There, I can go on but you might get bored because these are the more 'technical' part. But I think these are the important trivia to know and for us to be more beauty-savvy.
