Everyone knows that moisturizing your skin is important, but do you know why?
No matter if your skin type is dry, oily or sensitive, you shouldn't skip the moisturizing step in your skincare routine. There are many reasons why moisturizing is such an important part of any skin care routine.
Some common Moisturizer key ingredients that really matter:
Glycerin: In addition to providing hydration, glycerin forms a barrier on the skin's surface. This property allows it to glide on smoothly, but it can clog pores in high concentrations.
Hyaluronic acid: This molecule can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it the ultimate hydrator. It also helps draw active ingredients deeper into the skin and may be called a cyclic acid.
Shea butter: Widely used as a moisturizing ingredient, shea butter is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties as well.
Vitamin E: In addition to its antioxidant properties, nourishing vitamin E is a good moisturizer because it's oil-soluble.
Nicotinamide: has been shown to reduce the appearance of redness.
Anti-Bacterial Adhesive substance (ABA): helps to reduce the proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes)
Zinc PCA: sebum regulating action (in Papulex oil-free cream)
All of these benefits work together to keep your skin happy and healthy.
The right moisturizer helps keep your skin healthy and looking its best.
Whether you want to protect against aging, nourish and protect some of your most vulnerable areas, or simply enjoy skin that feels smooth, healthy, and radiant, regular moisturizing is key.

What is Carbon Laser Peel?
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment is a laser procedure that uses a carbon layer as a photo-enhancer to improve the skin’s radiance and promote a smooth and glowing complexion.
This treatment is used to target pores and active acne as the carbon powder penetrates into pores, thus allowing the laser to focus its energy more effectively. The Carbon Laser Peel helps to refine enlarged pores, reduce oil secretion, remove blackheads, and achieve a whitening effect.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
Before performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon lotion is applied on the entire face and allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes.
Then, the laser is moved across the skin in various modes. The carbon particles absorb the laser energy and implode. These multiple tiny explosions of carbon particles release heat on the epidermal layer, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores. The smoke from the explosion of carbon particles and skin debris is gently vacuumed up.
You will see a reduction in pore size, blemishes, inflammatory acne and superficial acne scars or marks as well as stimulation of collagen growth. Your skin tone will be improved and rejuvenated giving a more youthful appearance. The heat produced also destroys P-acne which causes pimples and inactivates the sebaceous glands, thus achieving acne control.
The treatment will take approximately 10 minutes. It is advised to stay away from excessive sun exposure during treatment period. Makeup can be applied after treatment.
You will be surprised by the instant brightening of your skin immediately after your 1st treatment. Your skin will feel renewed, soft and smooth. There will be marked reduction of open pores, oil production and improvement of blemishes.

What is Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peeling is a skin treatment that rejuvenates the skin by removing the top layers of the skin with the application of special medical solutions. This layer of skin is the oldest and roughest skin layer so chemical peeling will allow a layer of younger and better textured skin to replace the old outer skin. At the same time, any defects in the outer layer of the skin, such as pigmentation, will be removed together. After treatment, pigmentation, wrinkles, large pores and scars and other issues will be improved, and the skin will become more transparent, smooth and tight.
During the treatment process a few minutes of slight tingling will inevitably occur. This will soon subside.
What are the benefits of Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peels help to treat acne, like blackheads, whiteheads and the mild superficial acne scars.
It also helps to lighten skin pigmentation e.g sun spots, freckles and superficial melasma and enhances benefits from the use of topical retinoids.
Chemical peel helps to minimize fine wrinkles e.g. around the eyes but it does not treat severe wrinkles.
With light and medium peels, relatively mild chemical peel side effects such as redness, stinging, and crusting usually subside within a day or two after the treatment. The side effects of deep chemical peels are typically more pronounced, and recovery time is longer. However, serious side effects are rare when the procedure is performed by a qualified doctor. Depending on the depth of the skin peeling, the recovery time may be between 3 to 7 days, during which time the skin looks mildly sunburnt.
如用轻度或中度的化学剥离，相对温和的副作用例如发红、刺痛或结皮，在治疗后一天或两天内通常会消退。其他化学剥离的副作用通常更明显，恢复时间也较长。然而，当治疗是由合格的医生执行时，严重的副作用是罕见的。根据皮肤剥离的深度，完成换肤的时间可介于 3 至 7 天，在此期间，皮肤外观看起来会恰似被晒伤一般。
