Understanding Your Skin Type

Written by Vivoderm Admin on . Posted in Fundamentals

When determining skin type, two different conversations quickly surface. There is the more beauty-focused skin type discussion that refers to how our skin feels, how much oil it produces and how it reacts to products (think: normal, dry, oily, etc.) and then there is the skin type discussion that focuses on how our skin reacts to the sun and its susceptibility to skin cancer symptoms (think: fair, medium, dark, etc.) Both branches of the skin type conversation root back to our genetics.

We are born with the skin we have and cannot do much to change its natural properties. That’s why understanding the nature of our skin — in all its forms — is important for keeping it healthy and looking good.

Below, we take a look at the two kinds of skin type and explain how you can determine and care for your individual type. For our purposes, we are going to refer to the two branches as “sun exposure skin type” and “beauty skin type.” But even though we are dividing them, it’s important to remember that every feature of our skin is intimately connected, and the way our skin reacts to beauty products may be closely related to how it responds to the sun.

Fitzpatrick Skin Type (Sun Exposure Skin Type)

The most widely used system for determining skin type and how it will react to the sun is the Fitzpatrick scale. Created by Harvard dermatologist, Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, in 1975, the scale was developed to determine the response of skin types to ultraviolet light. Dermatologists realized that looking at hair and eye color alone as a way to predict skin sensitivity to the sun was ineffective. They made this scale inclusive by looking at how patients’ skin reacted to the sun and cataloguing responses into a general scale.

The scale is divided into six different skin types. Check out the different indicators for each type to determine which category your skin falls into.

Once you know where you fall on the scale, it’s important to know how to care for your skin type:

Type 1: Type 1 skin types need to be the most careful in the sun. With the least amount of melanin in your skin, you are the most vulnerable to skin cancer. Try to use a sunscreen with a SPF of 30+ and seek shade whenever you are out in the sun. Be sure to check your skin head-to-toe each month for suspicious spots or moles.

Type 2: Type 2 skin types are also very susceptible to skin cancer and should practice precaution in the sun. While your fair skin will tan occasionally, it is good to wear a SPF of 30+ when in the sun and avoid being in direct sunlight for extended periods. Be sure to conduct regular, head-to-toe skin checks each month as well.

Type 3: As a type 3, you may burn at the beginning of the summer but tan easily afterwards. Your medium to olive skin tone is more protected than types 1 & 2 but it still requires a strong SPF of at least 30+ to stay safe. Try to check your skin for moles and spots every month, or at least every three months, to prevent skin cancer.

Type 4: Your medium-brown skin tans easily and rarely burns. You are less likely to get skin cancer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Use an SPF of at least 15+ every day and avoid direct sun exposure.

Type 5: Type 5 skin tans very easily and seldom burns. Skin cancer is more rare for your skin type, but when skin cancer does occur it is usually detected at a later and higher-risk stage, usually on areas not directly exposed to the sun such as the palms of the hands. Use an SPF of 15+ while outside, and perform skin checks at least every three months to ensure that nothing goes undetected.

Type 6: As the darkest skin type, you almost never burn and tan very easily. But just because you never burn, doesn’t mean you are free of skin cancer risk. Still practice caution and use an SPF of 15+ to prevent damage to skin cells. Like Type 5, you are also more at risk for skin cancer in less exposed skin areas. Check your skin often for any changes or suspicious moles or spots.

 

Beauty Skin Type

Now that you know how your skin fairs in the sun, it’s time to identify the other factors that define your skin, specifically the skin on your face. While most skin exhibits features of multiple categories, having an idea of how your skin normally behaves will help you know how to care for it and which products to use.

To gain the best idea of which skin type you have, wash your face first and let it dry. Don’t put any products on it for an hour and see how it acts naturally. This will give you a good indication of its true nature.

Normal skin type

Normal skin is not too dry or oily; it falls in that desirable in-between place. Your skin normally has an even tone and a soft texture, with little flakiness. You may get an oily T-zone (the central area of your face including the chin, nose and the part of your forehead above your eyebrows) in hot weather, but generally, this area is oil-free. Lighter lotions and serums are ideal for your skin type because you don’t need much heavy product to keep your skin feeling great.

Dry skin type

Dry skin is characterized by small pores and an overall feeling of tightness. It often has more visible lines, less elasticity and a duller complexion. Moisture is key to caring for dry skin. Use lotions or creams to nourish your skin cells. If your skin feels dry but you still get breakouts, then you don’t have truly dry skin. Your skin may be feeling dry from the products you’re using.

Oily skin type

Oily skin tends to have larger pores, and a shiny, thicker feeling complexion. Blackheads and pimples are more common with this skin type. If you blot your face with a tissue and oil stays behind, then it’s likely that you have oily skin. Cleansing the face often and avoiding heavy creams and emollients is advised for minimizing the appearance of oil.

Combination skin type

While most of us have combination skin to some degree since there are more sebaceous glands around our nose, this skin type is marked by a consistently oily T-zone with dryness in other areas of the face. This is the most common skin type, and people with combination skin should consider using different products for different areas of the face to keep the skin balanced.

Additional Skin Type Factors

There are a few other features that contribute to skin type. It’s good to take these into account as well when figuring out what kind of skin you have.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin reacts easily to products and can breakout in rashes or become itchy. This is more likely in fair to medium skinned people but any skin type can have sensitivities. If you have sensitive skin, avoid harsh products and search for products that don’t clog or irritate the skin.

Acne-Prone

Skin can also be acne-prone. Acne of all kinds can occur at any age and on any area of the skin. Oily skin types are more likely to have acne but it can occur with all skin types. Consult a dermatologist to find an acne product and care routine that works for your unique skin problems.

Understanding all of the features of your skin may seem like a lot of work, but it is the best thing you can do to care for it properly. Once you understand how your skin responds to different elements, you can zero in on what products, treatments and safety precautions are ideal for you.

What kind of skin do you have? What are the best ways you’ve found to care for it? Let us know in the comments.

Reduce Signs Of Aging with the Vivoderm Anti-Aging Mask

Written by Author on . Posted in Anti-Aging, Fundamentals

Many of us do not realize how good we have it until it’s going or gone.  Unfortunately, this applies to skincare as well. In your 20’s, your skin is at it’s most supple, plump and wrinkle-free. While you might suffer from occasional bouts of acne due to hormones, collagen stores are plentiful and there’s not a crow’s foot in sight. The most you may have to do is cleanse, tone, apply sunscreen and get on with your day. But make no mistake, doing something is preferable to skipping a skincare routine all together. Doing nothing can really backfire as you age. Preventative care is what you are aiming for now.

By your 30’s the skin might start to show signs of aging, depending on how much time you spent in the sun and how little you did or did not follow a skincare regimen in your 20’s. Crow’s feet might begin to show around the eyes, and laugh lines may appear around the mouth. Sun spots and hyper-pigmentation can also be a new cause for alarm. These new signs of aging will appear not only on your face, but on your hands, neck and decolletage area as well – anywhere that gets constant sun exposure will be at risk. Collagen levels also begin to drop in your 30’s and 40’s and skin will slowly begin to thin and sag. If you make an extra effort to care for your skin from an early age, then you can do much to prevent the early signs of aging.

If you were not one to start early with a skincare regimen and have noticed those small signs of aging creeping up, never fear. There is a lot you can still do to prevent future skin damage and even repair or reverse your age spots and wrinkles. Besides your basic daily skin care routine – cleansing, toning, moisturizing – it is important to also use a few anti aging skin care products. Nowadays there are many different products and treatments available in the market to prevent signs of aging. Some products might be laden with chemicals, acids and other ingredients promising fast, extreme results. It is up to you and perhaps your dermatologist to determine the products that will be most effective for your skin type.

Custom-blend, powdered herbal facial mask

Vivoderm is natural-based skincare line that always recommends using products that are as gentle and chemical-free as possible. One of the most successful products in the Vivoderm Natural Skincare line is the 100% herbal Anti-Aging Mask.

This mask and the entire Vivoderm line was developed over 40 years ago by the Vivoderm founder, holistic dermatologist, Dr. H. Adhami, and used on thousands of patients in his private practice. *

Dr. Adhami believes the best treatments will help revitalize and repair your skin, not chemically burn or peel it away.  The Vivoderm Anti-Aging Mask is 100% herbal and natural and does not contain any chemicals or preservatives. Instead of peeling away the top layer of damaged skin, the way a chemical acid or peel would, the anti-aging mask allows the skin to heal and regenerate naturally with the absorption of pure enzymes and vitamins. The most powerful anti-aging herbs found in nature; Marshmallow, Rosemary and Aloe Vera, reduce inflammation and soothe skin while Lavender and Mint purify and refine the appearance of pores.  Two powerful antioxidants, Vitamin E and Green Tea along with other therapeutic essentials, repair free-radical damage.

And unlike pure clay masks, this self-mixed facial mask uses actual pulverized herbs along with natural pro-active enzymes and vitamins to reduce age spots and discoloration, boost vitamin intake and provide nutrients and anti-oxidants to your skin. It can also be custom-blended to suit your changing skin needs. If you need more moisture or a pick-me-up, blend the herbal mask powder with plain yogurt. If your skin is oily, use water, toner or witch hazel to change the consistency and effect.

This mask was also designed to increase cellular turnover, skin circulation and perk up and invigorate dull, damaged skin. The medium-grain texture of the blended herbs creates a natural exfoliate to help remove top-layer dead skin cells and create a smoother skin touch and feel. Gentle exfoliation also minimizes pores and discolorations, purifies the skin and removes black heads. Natural yogurt enzymes act as a gentle skin lightener; minimizing sun, acne and pregnancy spots while protecting skin against future damage.

We believe after the very first use you will start noticing the difference in your skin to reveal a radiant, fresh and more youthful complexion. Full size kits, refills and sample kits are available at www.vivoderm.com

* After regular use, many patients reported a dramatic change in their skin. Finer lines, smoother skin, smaller pores and reduced discolorations were typical effects.

• Size – 3.2 oz.
• 100% natural and herbal and contains no preservatives or chemicals.
FULL KIT comes with convenient porcelain mixing bowl and scoop.
• Actual dry pulverized herbs – not a clay mask.
• No animal testing. No parabens.
• Mix with equal amounts of water, toner or yogurt before use.

ANTI – AGING FACIAL MASK INGREDIENTS

Treating Skin With Avocado Oil

Written by Author on . Posted in Natural Skincare

As the end of summer officially draws to a close, many of us will be putting away those warm weather sandals and tank tops and replacing them with cool weather gear that covers and protects our skin. But no mater what part of the country you live in – warm or cold, there are still plenty of reasons to keep using your moisturizers to help your skin stay hydrated and soft.

Vivoderm Natural Skincare prides itself on using the bVivoderm Body Butter with Avocado Oilest natural ingredients it can source in all of it’s skincare products. One of those key moisturizing ingredients is Avocado oil. We use it in our Body Butter and Foot Cream as well as our Anti Wrinkle Treatment.

Avocado oil is an exclusive oil that has the capacity to enter the upper skin layers. It is valuable for its effects on wrinkled and dry skin and it is also a great oil for diaper rash. It contains high amounts of mono-saturated fatty acids and vitamins as wells as anti-oxidants and Omega 3’s. Avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the fruit by the cold extraction method. Hence, the oil retains all the aroma and flavor, nutritional value, making it absolutely ideal for skin healing and hydration.

There are many skin care benefits that you can receive by including avocado oil in your daily regimen. If you have blemished or sun damaged skin, thanks to it’s high vitamin content avocado oil can help you to reduce and reverse blemishes. Vitamins A,E,D, B1, B2 and K are beneficial for all over skin and body health. Avocado oil contains high doses of Omega-3s, which are highly effective in protecting the skin from UV rays, therefore decreasing the chance of being sunburned, preventing the appearance of age spots and reducing the risk of skin cancer.

Scientific studies have recently shown how important collagen is for Vivoderm Avocado Skincarekeeping your skin firm and youthful. Collagen is the main structural protein in various connective tissues in our bodies and skin. As we age, the collagen tissues flatten and stretch – causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Avocado oil has been shown to help increase collagen production naturally. It aids in hydrating and plumping up skin cells and forms a natural cushion to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of aging.  It can be used, as a very effective and natural skin moisturizer. Avocado oil penetrates to the deep layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production therefore, improving the softness and elasticity of the skin and reducing it’s dryness. Avocado oil can be also beneficial for people with such skin conditions as psoriasis and eczema, relieving the itchiness of the skin.

So, if you want your skin to have more firmness and a smooth appearance, you will get excellent results with products that contain Avocado oil. Using avocado oil separately can be beneficial but when it is combined in a lotion or cream then its effects can be enhanced greatly to help treat dry skin and signs of aging.

Vivoderm makes a highly effective foot cream and Chamomile body butter which is ideal for treating dry, cracked feet and scaly skin. The thick and rich texture leaves your feet and body smooth and soft. Our Anti Wrinkle treatment with natural avocado oil, will reduced wrinkles and your increase collagen production.

So, if you are looking for a great skin moisturizer to help transition your feet, body and face from summer to fall and into winter – give Vivoderm a try!

Vivoderm Founder Discusses Acne Treatments

Written by Vivoderm Admin on . Posted in Vivoderm Press

The founder and creator of Vivoderm Natural Skincare, Dr. H. Adhami, was recently featured in the November 2014 issue of DERMASCOPE MAGAZINE, in response to questions about the cause and treatment of severe to moderate acne – specifically a teen with severe acne and scarring.

EXCERPT:  “I do not recommend her to use any topical products with acids.  Acids will gradually destroy the top layer of the skin, in turn making the skin thinner, destroying the collagen, and worsening the scarring. I recommend natural products such as masks, containing powerful healing, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory herbs such as oregano, cumin and marshmallow.”

Acne is a skin condition among humans that involves the oil glands of the skin. It can leave ugly marks on your face when it occurs. You should know that hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together to form a plug, which becomes infected and results in swelling. The pimple develops when this plug breaks down. According to dermatologists, acne is very common among individuals between the ages of 11-30.

Avocado is a fruit which has many benefits related to health and beauty. It is considered to be a natural skincare ingredient that helps to reduce scars, age spots and tans.

Blend one half (or as needed) avocado into 1-2 tablespoons of your Vivoderm herbal facial mask using the Vivoderm mask bowl and scoop till it has a smooth texture. If you need more hydration to blend, simply add water or Vivoderm toner. It is easy to use this mixture. Next, simply take a cotton ball or mask brush and then dip it in the mixture. Dab (or brush) the mixture on your face and neck areas. After 20 minutes you can rinse off with warm water and follow with the Vivoderm Natural Facial Toner. Wah-lah! Your skin will be super hydrated, radiant and ready to show off to the world!

And in between mask treatments, don’t forget to use a natural facial cleanser daily to help fight grime and dirt and keep skin clean.
