Baby Skin Care - Baby acne / Hormone rash / Milla

Wednesday, April 04, 2012
By Kim Scott

Having just had my delightful new baby girl “Willow Scott” I thought I would write a short blog to share my first hand experience with Baby Acne or “Milk Pimples” as they are commonly referred as. This is my 2nd child and first experience with baby acne. 

At one week of age Willow developed pimples which presented themselves red and angry over her entire face (See Image 1). She was born with Milia which is common in newborns. These leisions are tiny, white spots that appear, usually across the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead or around the eyes. Milia looks raised, but if you touch them they will feel smooth, however as you can see from the photos Willows were inflamed, red, rash like & she had pimples combined with Milia, which looked just like teenage acne.
I had read before that it's the mother's hormones, which are still circulating in the baby's system, that cause the spots, but also knew that her pimples were not causing any pain or discomfort beyond mild itchiness, however they looked dreadful and it was more me that was concerned. 
As an aesthetician “THE SKIN” is my passion and I really wanted to help her.

At The Skin Corrective Centre we have had many clients report back to us on the famous bod for bubs “miracle dry skin balm” however, I can now say from first hand experience that this range on newborns skin is nothing short of incredible. I decided to use my daughter  as a case study to hopefully help other mothers out there avoid TOPICAL STERIODS (cortisone creams) which can in some cases thin the skin and often lead to other secondary skin responses.

Treatment for Baby Acne

2 products:  Miracle Dry Skin Balm & Splish Splash
  • 1 x per day use “Splish Splash” wash in bath on affected area and rinse off with water.
  • 3 x per day apply “Miracle Dry Skin Balm” to affected areas, leave on.
Continue this treatment until skin is clear.

For those of you that may not be aware, The Skin Corrective Centre stocks an Organic Range of baby skin care products which we do also recommend for adults from time to time, not just for babies. As Willow was only 1 week old I really did not want to use anything with nasty ingredients. For me, it was about using active plant extracts, less than .3% essential oils to get results and also about excluding ingredients that I knew were irritants to skins of any age.

Helpful hints:

As mums I feel we really need to focus on what‘s NOT in our babies skincare products. Unfortunately to this day there are some very large well known companies that still contain the ingredients listed below and market them for sensitive skins, why?.... I do not know! Only a few of the bod for bubs products even require a preservative and the company has chosen to use a food grade preservative (hydroxymethyl- glycinate) we assure you, is safe on baby’s skin.

Examples of nasty’s in baby care products include:
  • Fragrance
  • Petrochemicals
  • Sodium lauryl sulphates
  • Artificial preservatives
  • Alcohol
  • Parabens
  • Animal products
  • Astringents
You won’t find any hidden nasties in the bod for bubs range; all products are free from animal products, petrochemicals and parabens. Specifically blended to nourish delicate skin, all scents are 100% pure essential oils blended according to safety guidelines.

Extra Tips & Hints

Treatment for Nappy Rash (2 products:  Cowboys and Itchy Bums & Splish Splash)
  • 3 xs per day apply salt water solution to affected area with cotton ball let dry.
  • After every nappy change apply a generous amount of” Cowboys and itchy bums” (contains Zinc and natural healing ingredients) 
  • Wash the area thoroughly with Splish Splash wash (ph balanced  and contains no fragrance) 
I hope this helps mums with their child’s skin concerns. Please don’t hesitate to email ATT: Kim @ tsccdubbo@yahoo.com.au   with any questions or call The Skin Corrective Centre on 68856349.

April Skin in Focus - Pimples, Breakouts and Acne

Tuesday, April 03, 2012
The Pathology of a pimple, pustule or breakout is a blocked hair follicle/pores. Pores are mostly concentrated on your face, chest and back. Your pores allow an oily substance called sebum to be released onto your skin. Therefore, when your pores become blocked, sebum is unable to be released. Bacteria combines with sebum and skin cells under the skin causing inflammation and acne pimples. Salicylic acid, which is a antibacterial anti microbial agent,which is sucessfully used to treat and prevent acne. 
When applied to the skin, salicylic acid unclogs blocked pores and reduces redness and swelling. Products contating high percentages of salicylic acid can be purchased only with a qualified skincare therapist or GP. Regular exfoliation is also essential to keep pores unblocked.Water based or hylauronic acid based moisturisers are also beneficial in keeping the skin hydrated without applying oil.

If your condition is caused by an possible imbalance in 'Adgrogens" or Hormones talk to your GP , you may also require a short course of antibiotics that help to break the cyle of bacteria from the inside out. While your Salicylic acid goes to work from the outside in. Remember "what feeds your body feeds your skin" so do not forget that increased stress and poor diet may also effect the health of your skin.

Have you ever had breakouts that seem to all of a sudden take over just your chin or jaw line? Or maybe you get those pesky and annoying swollen pimples on your nose every now and then. 

Well, according to a technique called Chinese face mapping you can better assess what may be causing your breakouts and what to do about them.  With Chinese face mapping, it is thought that toxin build up or weakness in a certain organ or gland can cause acne in certain parts of the body.

March Skin in Focus - Exfoliation

Friday, March 02, 2012
The process of exfoliation rids the body dry, dull skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis. By removing these dead cells, exfoliation can help keep pores from becoming blocked and leave skin with a refreshed and clean feeling. Clogged pores can result in blackheads and pimples. Furthermore, when pores are clogged, they appear larger. So, if you're worried about the size of your pores, although you can't reduce their actual size (genetics is the biggest factor in pore size), you can help diminish their appearance by keeping them clog-free. In addition to the immediate visual benefits of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process( cellular metabolism), allowing smoother, healthier skin cells to take their place. Not only will this help with fine lines and wrinkles, but it will help to ease discoloration and pigmentation as well.. Exfoliation can be manual, chemical or ezymatic. Speak to your skin professional about which exfolation method is suitable for your skin.Once or twice a week for mild exfoliation, once a month for professional intense treatments -- can improve the results of your skin care routine and help rejuvenate your skin. Whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation can bring new life to your complexion.

February Skin in Focus - Sunscreen!

Wednesday, February 01, 2012
When buying a sunscreen, is important to achieve an adequate physical block from UVA and UVB damage. Look for ingredients such as Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide. Chemical blockers also prevent UVA damage with ingredients listed such as methoxycinnimate and octyl methoxydibenzolmethane. Generally the difference between a supermarket SPF30+ and a Salon SPF30+ may be, that the ingredients such as Zinc oxide or Titanium dioxide are microfined for a better application. They may be void of chemical blokers that cause irritation and skin sensitivity. They may even have added key ingredients to benefit the health of the skin. A good quality sunscreen is your number one anti-ageing product and should be the first purchased above all others.

7 Steps to Beautiful Skin in 2012

Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Your skin is a reflection of the overall health of your body. Lifestyle choices literally make their mark on your face. Just follow these commonsense guidelines below for skin preservation, and you'll be sure to keep your skin looking great for a lifetime.

7 STEPS TO BEAUTIFUL SKIN IN 2012

  • Cleanse. Regular cleansing rids the skin of excess oils and dirt and sloughs off dead skin cells. 
  • Exfoliate regularly. Regular Exfoliation ensures cell turnover takes place to keep your skin cell cycle speedy and healthy. It will also means that your mineral foundation sits perfectly and that you also gain maximum penetration of your active serums and moisturisers. 
  • Use Sunscreen every day regardless of whether you are directly out in the sun. While a little vitamin D is essential, remember that the freckles you are trying to fade, the red capillaries that you are trying to prevent along the wrinkles you spend so much time trying to eliminate are all caused by exposure to the sun. 
  • Consume & Apply Vitamins A C and E. A healthy diet full of antioxidants A, C, and E helps fend off free radicals from everyday exposure to air pollutants, sun, and stress.Topically applying Vitamin A and C in serums assists reducing pigmentation and helps to produce new collagen ( super anti-ageing ingredients) 
  • Exercise and Drink Plenty of Water. Exercise increases circulation, which helps nourish collagen fibres that give skin its appearance of plumpness, while perspiration from your workout decreases toxins. Water hydrates the skin from the inside out, always reach for a glass of H20 before soft drink or fruit juices. 
  • Do not Smoke. Avoid smoking and breathing second-hand smoke, which causes blood vessels to constrict, inhibiting blood flow and starving the skin of oxygen. 
  • Use mineral Makeup. Makeup is worn by women almost every day of their adult lives. It is normally the last product we think of that may be causing breakouts and blemishes on our skin. It is best to keep the skin breathing with a good quality mineral based Makeup like Youngblood of cours
