When it comes to skin care, skin is skin—no matter the color. Skin is the body’s largest organ which is why everyone’s skin needs the same ingredients to address dry skin, acne, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, oily skin, rosacea, sensitive skin, and so on. Everyone’s skin also needs the same basics to care for it: gentle cleansing, sun protection, and state-of-the-art products for their skin type. Always use a well formulated sunscreen during the day (the most typical cause of uneven skin tone for women of color is sun damage). Dark Skin and Sun Damage. Everyone’s skin color is created by the amount of melanin in their skin. Having lots of melanin gives women of color an added advantage when it comes to how their skin handles sun exposure and how soon the damage becomes visible. Essentially, the more melanin your skin has, the more natural defense your skin has against the sun. Just to review, skin color is not a skin type, and skin type is definitely what should dictate which products you use. How you treat oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, rosacea, acne, clogged pores, eczema, skin discolorations, wrinkles, or sun damage is the same, regardless of your skin color. Rather than get misled by slick marketing convincing you to buy products based on ethnicity, follow The Paula's Choice Research Team’s approach: Use products that suit your skin type and condition, not your skin color. You’ll find products for all skin types and a range of concerns, from acne and sensitive skin to wrinkles, pores, and sun damage. With Paula’s Choice Skincare, you can get (and keep) the best skin of your life!

Essential oils have various therapeutic properties which add zing to any cream , and some of them have very specialized properties to help with skin conditions . If you have never used essential oils, and are prone to allergic reactions, please do a skin patch test with any new ingredient you use. When selecting essential oils for facial or body creams and lotions, stay away from sun sensitizing essential oils, as they will cause a problem if you go into the sun. If you do not want to get involved with too much mixing, you can make a simple moisturizer by using a neutral aqueous base cream, obtainable from your pharmacy, druggist or health shop, and add your desired essential oils to it. Do not exceed the recommended dilution of essential oil to the base, since more is not always better, and you could burn your skin with too strong a mixture. Next start to mix the floral water to the beeswax and oil mixture, mixing it with a whisk or electric mixer. When you have finished adding the water the mixture will start to set, and before it does mix in 8 drops of your chosen essential oil.

Placecol's new Dermaceutical Range: Best Skin Care Product in South Africa. South African brand Placecol has launched a new dermaceutical range, simply called ‘Placecol’. It will be available at Placecol Beauty Salons as from the end of November. Esna Colyn, CEO of the Placecol Group, told Professional Beauty on 5 November that over the past 17 months, her team of experts collapsed five of the brand’s skincare ranges – including the Core, Advanced and Renaissance ranges – to create the new range, which comprises 30 products, including four body care products. “We have retained the best elements from our five previous ranges and combined them together with new raw and natural ingredients to create the Placecol dermaceutical range,” she said. Colyn revealed that Placecol has a new biotechnology partner and that the range is manufactured in a GMP/ISO 9001 facility and is of export quality. The products comprise natural pharmaceutical grade ingredients and are free of parabens and allergens. Colyn emphasised that the motivation behind the new range was a desire to simplify the Placecol product offering while remaining true to the authenticity of the brand, which was founded by Elma Mckenzie in 1980. According to Placecol’s technical consultant, Karen Coomber, the main focus in developing the new range was skin health. “The anti-ageing actives in the new range are much more powerful than were found in the Placecol Core range. “In terms of the dermaceutical delivery system – we wanted to identify raw materials with the same lipid identification as those found in the skin. Our raw ingredients feed micro-nutrients into the skin.” The new range contains 46 active pharmaceutical grade ingredients.
