Photo-aging of the skin is an inevitable process that affects everyone because the skin is exposed to sunlight and other solar rays from the time of birth.
Photoprotection prevents skin damage caused by ultraviolet rays relesed by the sun. Ultraviolet rays are cause of sunburns, skin aging and, expecially in pale-skinned people, may induce skin cancer.
Seborrheic dermatitis on the face is the most frequently encountered form of seborrheic dermatitis.
It’s an aesthetic disorder that causes reddening and dilatation of the blood vessels on the cheeks.
This disorder of facial pigmentation is frequent in young women.
Instead of being distributed evenly to create a tan, the melanin pigment produced by melanocytes, accumulates in dirty-looking patches on the forehead, cheeks or upper lip.
Removing make-up is stressful when your skin is sensitive and the use of common and aggressive detergents makes it worse.
Acne vulgaris or juvenile acne is a frequently observed inflammatory condition affecting the pilosebaceous units of the face and trunk.
The skin of the face counts many sebaceous glands that are responsible for the natural protection against dryness.
Seborrheic (oily) skin is a particular type of skin in which the sebaceous glands are very active. It is most noticeable on the face, particularly the forehead.
A “comedo” is an accumulation of keratin and lipids at the opening of a hair follicle.
Wet shaving can cause unpleasant irritation on the face of men with delicate skin: redness and dryness accompanied by a sensation of itching or burning.
It sometimes happens that, after shaving, some hair grow into the skin instead of growing outwards. This causes swelling and reddening, and sometimes even infection.
Many men develop folliculitis (inflamed or even infected hair follicles) after shaving.
Solar erythema is due to excessive exposure to sunlight (or a UV lamp), and is caused by the UVB band of the ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun.
It is an inflammatory reaction that manifests itself suddenly with redness, itching, wrinkling and desquamation of the eyelids both superior (more frequent) and inferior.
As its name suggests, perioral dermatitis is characterised by erythematous papules and sometimes folliculitis (boils) that typically appear around the mouth. It is frequent in young women.
Acne rosacea is a particular form of erythematous folliculitis that affects the face (including the eyes) and the upper part of the trunk.
