This is the 21st century; despite all the huckstering by "natural healing" people, this doesn't have to be you. ...Read more

How to identify suitable skincare product for a combination skin?

How to identify suitable skincare product for a combination skin?

Find the right doc: I feel strongly about this topic, because unfortunately there are too many pros that fall victim to the same hype that the general public does. Find someone who truly believes in good scientifically- based skin care that can truly make a difference, not the newest fad. If they can't explain it to you in terms that make sense, move on. There is no substitute for good medicine, especially in skin. ...Read more

How can you tell whether a skincare product has got radioactive contaminant? If one feel alright after using, does it mean product is safe?

How can you tell whether a skincare product has got radioactive contaminant? If one feel alright after using, does it mean product is safe?

Not likely: Most skin care products use inexpensive ingredients and there is little supervision of these products by governmental agencies. Thus they could have various forms of contamination without your knowledge or even that of the manufacturer. Radioactive contaminants must be extremely rare if ever; you should be more concerned about toxic ingredients and whether the product is worth the cost. ...Read more
