How to choose the best baby skincare Singapore dermatologist recommended
The best baby moisturiser is one that replaces deficient ceramides and soothes newborn’s skin.The product should be labelled dermatologist-recommended. The best baby moisturisers have no fragrance. We generally do not recommend using regular moisturisers for baby’s sensitive skin. Brands that work with dermatologists are a safer bet. These brands are readily available at drugstores. However, there is a difference in effectiveness between different brands. It depends on the active ingredients used.

Generally, the best baby moisturisers tend to be more expensive because of higher concentrations of ceramide. A “safe” baby moisturiser can be as common as white soft paraffin, also known as Vaseline. However, safe doesn’t mean effective at all. Essentially, Vaseline does function as a moisturiser, by preventing water loss to the environment. It stops trans epidermal water loss. This is only one part of moisturiser therapy.

Hormonal Acne

For many people, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples are a normal part of puberty. However, for some, acne can be a stubborn problem that occurs well beyond their teenage years. This is known as Hormonal Acne. Hormonal acne is characterised by painful and unpleasant pimples. It most commonly appears in adult women ages 20 to 40. In this article, I will be sharing about the science behind hormonal acne and the recommended treatment options.

What is hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne occurs with flareups during certain periods of the menstrual cycle. Hormonal acne also tends to present itself as large painful cysts around the chin and jawline area. It can be related to an underlying gynaecological problem known as polycystic ovarian syndrome whereby the sufferer also has irregular menstrual cycles, excessive facial hair growth, weight gain as well as adult acne.

Who are typical sufferers of hormonal acne?

Sufferers of hormonal acne tend to be adult females who find that the acne persists beyond puberty. In my knowledge, there has not been any clinical epidemiological studies, performed by dermatologists, on the incidences of hormonal acne. However, in my practice, out of 10 adult women that I see, a good 60 or 70% would report an influence of their menstrual cycle on their acne.

What is the recommended treatment option for hormonal acne?

The best-proven treatment option, first of all, is to visit an accredited dermatologist. He or she will conduct a clinical evaluation that involves inspecting for any other clinical science suggestive of a more severe underlying gynaecological issue such as PCOS. The second thing would depend on the appearance of the acne itself. If it is predominantly nodular cystic, treatment will be the same as for non-hormonal acne. However for cystic acne, which is the most severe form of acne, we treat it with isotretinoin.

I have the majority of adult females in my practice who suffer from acne start on an oral contraceptive pill that has been proven to block the male hormone testosterone. This is helpful in treating hormonal flare out of acne and this is always in conjunction with topical anti-inflammatory creams as well as physical therapy such as blue light which helps to suppress the acne bacterium, Propionibacterium acnes, in addition to lasers which can also help to control oil production.

In terms of the best proven treatment option, I think it is important to highlight that acne is a medical condition and it is caused by a myriad of factors working together. The first being your personal genetics, the second being inflammation which is influenced by your genetics as well, the hormonal fluctuations which means that your body is much more sensitive to the circulating amounts of testosterone. Excess oil production in addition to an overgrowth of bacteria. In order to treat this problem medically, you have to target several of these processes. There is no one single method. It has to be addressed holistically. If you have primarily hormonal acne, without any other family history of excess oil production, taking an oral contraceptive pill alone and treating the underlying hormonal issue if you have PCOS would help to resolve the skin problem. However, with regards to 80-90% of the females I see who have either comedonal, cystic or nodular cystic acne, we often have to approach the treatment holistically, addressing all these processes.

Skincare ingredients 101 with a board certified dermatologist

Ingredient spotlight: arnica montana

How exactly do botanical extracts benefit us? Botanical-powered skincare products are effective when it comes to addressing skin aging, redness and pigmentations. One star, yet understated botanical ingredient is the Arnica Montana flower extract. Before we dive into the goodness of botanicals, there are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for a botanical-infused cleanser, serum or moisturiser. Always do some research before applying anything onto your face. As all botanicals are not created equal, some work better when they are formulated with other ingredients. So, read up on scientific studies surrounding these botanicals.

Meet Arnica Montana: the botanical boon. Characterised by its distinctive yellow petals, Arnica Montana, more commonly known as wolf’s bane or leopard’s bane, is frequently used in homeopathy. Arnica Montana flower extract is highly effective when it comes to reducing inflammation and bruising. Its inflammatory quality combined with its antioxidant activity and antimicrobial properties is especially beneficial for people suffering from various skin conditions including acne and eczema.
