What Are the Functions of High Frequency Skin Care Equipment?

Despite their design differences, the underlying functions of high frequency skin care machines are the same. These machines have a high rate of oscillation and produce heat. High frequency skin care machines minimize enlarged pores, treat acne and reduce fine facial lines. They also decongest puffy eyes, prevent the formation of dark eye circles, and rejuvenate the scalp.

Overall benefits

  • High frequency machines offer a safe and mild means to achieve skin rejuvenation. They include a glass electrode, which emits a subtle glow that causes a therapeutic tingling sensation on the skin surface. The machines produce high-frequency electrical currents and infrared light. These improve blood circulation and infuse the skin with ozone molecules, destroying bacteria and promoting lymphatic drainage. High-frequency machines increase the elastin and collagen production of the skin and assist to exfoliate dead skin cells. They also produce skin and muscle toning. Through the mild tissue warming effect and increased circulation in the upper layers of skin, underlying blood vessels begin to contract and force out toxins in the process. Increased blood circulation allows for cell renewal, while the elevated levels of collagen improve skin texture. Another function of high-frequency current application is the antibacterial function it performs. These machines produce mild heat and ozone that leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated and looking and feeling firmer and softer.

Acne

  • The application of high-frequency electrical current destroys acne-causing bacteria strains and removes toxins from the skin surface. Skin that has undergone high-frequency treatment is also more receptive to topical acne treatments.

Enlarged Pores

  • By controlling excess sebum production and making for a softer skin tone, high-frequency skin treatment reduces enlarged pores. The ozone produced by these machines works its way to the pore to oxidize any accumulated debris, thereby allowing the pore to revert to its original shape.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

  • A main function of high-frequency skin care equipment is to increase blood circulation and give the skin-enriched oxygen in the form of ozone. The result of ozone application and increased circulation, makes for toned and nourished skin, which renews skin cells and diminishes the appearance of lines.

Puffy Eyes and Dark Eye Circles

  • The pulsating action of high-frequency skin care machines assists in lymphatic drainage and removes excess fluid, both of which reduce congested and puffy eyes. These machines increase blood circulation and make the skin more receptive to the benefits of topically applied creams and lotions.

How Often Do You Wash Your Face?

 

 

This morning I was poking around one of my favorite style-photography sites (the toujours-charmante Garance Doré’s) and saw the headline “Water.” In it, she pays her dermato a visit with a long list of questions and skincare concerns and comes away with just one startling piece of advice:

“Your skin is very good. It’s just exhausted. The only thing you need is to: Stop water.

I almost started to cry. I’ve been told for years that water is not good for my skin (is it good for anybody’s skin?) but I resist. I rebel. For me, being clean equals using water and something that foams a lot. I knew that one day at the turn of my century, I would pay the price of my mindlessness, but not unlike Pete Doherty, I prefered to ignore the advice of people who cared for me.

I was always choosing the dark side of the force, and that is to say : WATER

I’ve heard of this before and I think it’s definitely a French thing, but it got me thinking. How do you keep your face from getting wet in the shower? And if you’re not using any water but you are wearing makeup, then whaaaa? Using a cream cleanser and wiping it off with cotton? Wouldn’t that leave residue that you would then need a toner or something to get off? Seems laborious to me! And it also seems like it would necessitate more products, not fewer, which is not in keeping with my less-is-more philosophy. Maybe Garance’s skin is exhausted from the foaming cleanser she’s using? Who knows! My suspicion has always been that water is less of a problem; it’s what you use with it that can make your skin sad.

We’ve talked about being dirty over here before. We even roped you all into a no-soap challenge that was, in our estimation, a pretty big success! But we exempted washing your hair, your face and your underarms/privates because, well, that seemed the right thing to do.

There were times (years, actually) when I didn’t feel clean unless I washed my face upwards of three times a day, and wiped it down with alcohol-laced toners. Now I know better, and what works best for me is if I only wash my face at night, to get off my makeup, sunscreen and grime from the filthy city I live in. But I don’t wash it in the morning; I use a clean muslin cloth and wipe down with…water. At night I use Tata Harper’s Regenerating Cleanser.

What’s your take? Do you wash your face twice a day, and if so, why? And have you ever forsaken water?

Why Skin Care Is Important

Skin is your body’s largest organ. It serves as a protective barrier between your insides and the rest of the world, helps regulate body temperature and acts as a filter. Skin exists in a constant state of growth, with old cells dying as new cells are forming. It’s affected by every aspect of your life, from what you eat to where you live. Healthy skin is better able to fight signs of aging, heals much faster and staves off potential disease better than unhealthy skin.
Why Skin Care Is Important thumbnail

Appearance

  • Proper skin care is vital if you’re concerned about your physical appearance. Unhealthy skin tends to appear sallow and dull, whereas healthy skin appears full and vibrant. Wrinkles develop with more ease and sink deeper if your skin is dehydrated and unhealthy, and it can result in uneven patches that have a mottled color. When skin is unhealthy it loses elasticity, which can make it sag and appear thin.

Health

  • Proper skin care is not only about looking good, it’s about staying healthy. Poor skin care habits can lead to rashes, sores, acne and wrinkles. Unhealthy skin is more susceptible to disease, infection and is more likely to scar after an injury. Proper care is particularly important for people who experience skin issues, such as psoriasis, or have skin allergies.


Keeping Skin Healthy

  • Skin is constantly growing and changing, so you have to remain vigilant in caring for it. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and maintain a balanced diet to provide the vitamins and minerals your skin needs. Stick with fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein for the best results. Always make sure to use sunblock if you’re going to spend time outside.

Proper Skin Care

  • Proper skin care means cleansing it properly. Skin needs moisture to survive, so avoid using hot water when you wash your face, as the heat sucks moisture from your skin. Try using warm or cool water instead. Also, avoid harsh or chemical-heavy soaps, as they strip moisture from your skin while polluting it. Keep your skin moisturized by applying lotion within a few minutes of bathing. If you have a problem with dry skin, use an oil-based lotion on the problem area several times a day.

Skin Care and Pregnancy

  • Proper skin care is important for health and appearance during a pregnancy. Unhealthy skin can cause an unhealthy body, which in turn can cause an unhealthy baby. Healthy skin is more pliable and will minimize the stretch marks that typically occur in the later stages of pregnancy.

Skincare tips to get a beautiful complexion

Radiant and flawless skin is what every woman wants. And here are some new skincare tips to get a beautiful complexion.

It’s known that drinking eight glasses of water a day, using SPF, and having a solid cleansing routine are essential, but the Association of Professional Hair and Makeup Artists reveals their top five tips for radiant skin, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Here are five tips that you may not have known about:

1) Flip your pillow case: When you sleep, you drool, perspire and sometimes sweat. This goes directly onto your pillow case and sheets, so it’s a must to keep your pillow clean.

To keep it clean, every two weeks you should vacuum it with a turbo brush. Then wash it on hot (or follow care instructions), shake the pillow out and let dry naturally in sunlight. This regular cleaning will help reduce the bacteria, and nasties in the pillow.

During the week, between washing the sheets, turn your pillowcase inside out and upside down, so that you are getting the side that your face hasn’t been touching. You will be able to notice that this makes a difference in getting clearer skin.

2) Steam up your shower: Going to the spa for a facial is one of the best things you can do for your skin. No matter what type of skin you have, steam is one of the spa’s secret tricks while giving you a facial. It opens your pores, and the gentle heat brings blood to the surface of your skin, which helps it naturally repair itself.

When you’re going to take a shower, turn the temperature hotter than normal, and shut the door for a few minutes. This allows the steam to build up. Once it has a good amount of steam, you have created your own steam room. Take your shower as normal, and over time, your skin will start glowing like never before.

3) Wash your face for longer: You know you should brush your teeth for two minutes, so give the same kind of attention to your skin. When you wash your face, do it for at least two minutes. This allows the cleanser to really do its job, and get into your pores.

4) Don’t touch your face: You touch your face more than you know. The National Health Institute of Bethesda found that people touched common objects an average of 3.3 times per hour and their faces 3.6 times per hour. If you get bacteria on your hands and then touch your face… the bacteria is now on your face. And bacteria cause imperfections.

Touching your face is a harder thing to stop doing than you think, as it happens naturally. How often do you move your hair out of your face? How often do your rub your eyes, or hold your hand up to your face when you sneeze? But the pro tip here is to make a concerted effort to not touch your face and use anti-bacterial gel or wipes to kill all the nasties.

5) Keep your hair clean, and out of your face: Your hair, especially if you have fringe, can lead to spots. The natural oils in your hair can build up and then transfer onto your face. If you use products on your hair, this can also lead to imperfections.

You’re not going to change your hairstyle or stop using products. So the solution is two-fold. First, when you’re at home, push your hair behind your ears, get your fringe off your forehead, and ponytails are your new best friend.

The second is to use products on your hair that will be better for your skin, especially like organic, natural products, as these tend to be gentler on your skin.
