السيروم والمرطب يساعدان البشرة بطرق مختلفة. احيانا السيروم وحده يكفى لعلاج بشرتك, وفى احيان اخرى ستجدين انك بحاجة الى سيروم ومرطب في آن. السيروم اقل كثافةً واخف من المرطب، ويتضمن نسبة مهمة من المكونات المعالجة الضرورية، التي تخرق إلى أعمق طبقات البشرة. ولهذا السبب, ينبغى استخدام السيروم مباشرة على البشرة بعد التنظيف, قبل المرطب وواقي الشمس. لدى السيروم مجموعة متنوعة وكبيرة من المهام، ويمكن استخدامه صباحاً و مساء. لا يحل السيروم مكان المرطب ولكن الإستعمال المتزامن للأثنين، يعزز العلاج ويأتي بنتيجة أسرع. يستخدم السيروم فى معالجة مجموعة متنوعة من العناية بالبشرة. على سبيل المثال مضاد للشيخوخة، للترهل، لتبييض البشرة، لعلاج حب الشباب…
يميل السيروم إلى أن يكون أكثر تكلفة من مساحيق العناية بالبشرة، لأنه يحتوي على نسبة مركزة من مستخلص العلاج، لذلك فإن إستعمال كميات صغيرة منه تكفي لفعالية ملحوظة.
أما المرطب ، فيكون ذات نسيج أسمك وكثيف، وهدفه هو ترطيب البشرة والحؤول دون تبخر الماء من الخلايا. في بعض الأحيان، تزاد عليه مكونات مضادة لعوامل الشيخوخة، وبذلك يصبح مفعول هذه المستحضرات مزدوجاً.
انما ومن أجل معالجة مشكلة في البشرة، مثل الترهل أو البقع أو مضار الشمس، ينصح الإخصائيين بالجمع بين فوائد المستحضرين، السيروم والمرطب، لنتيجة سريعة وناجحة.
والسبب بسيط، إذ إن جزئيات مستحضر العناية بالبشرة أكبر من جزئيات السيروم، وهذا الأمر يحول دون اختراقها طبقات البشرة ومعالجة المشكلة من الجذور.
أما إذا كانت البشرة من النوع المدهن أو المزدوج oily or mixed skin ، فإن إستعمال السيروم بطريقة منتظمة، كفيل بمعالجة البشرة وحمايتها وترطيبها، دون اللجوء إلى مرطب يكون في أغلب الأحيان غير ملائم لأنه مشبع بالزيوت المرطبة التي لا تناسب البشرة الدهنية.
Manicure can quickly turn into a nightmare if you are allergic to any ingredients in your nail polish. What is interesting is that often the first sign of being allergic to nail polish is a rash on the eyelids or face, not a rash around the nail. This occurs because the person has inadvertently rubbed their eyes and since the skin on lids is thin and sensitive, the allergic rash begins there.
An allergy to fingernail polish is classified as contact dermatitis because it results from direct contact with the substance you’re allergic to. Fingernail polish contains a number of chemical substances that can cause an allergic reaction. Once you develop an allergy to chemicals in nail polish, you’ll be allergic to them from then on. Consult your physician immediately if your symptoms of fingernail polish allergy include headache, because this can be a sign of a serious reaction called anaphylaxis.
Contact dermatitis is also called a delayed hypersensitivity reaction because it generally takes several exposures to the offending substance, or allergen, before it produces a full-blown allergic reaction. At first contact, the allergen is absorbed into your skin and immune cells generate memory cells to recognize the allergen as harmful at subsequent exposures. An allergy to nail polish is often attributed to eye makeup or skin care products because the initial symptoms are typically expressed around your eyelids,face, ears and neck.
Fingernail polish contains several chemicals that can trigger an allergic reaction. Chemicals often found to produce allergies include:
Toluene Sulfonamide Formaldehyde Resin, or TSFR;
Para- and ortho- toluene sulfonamide;
Nickel mixing beads.
If you have an allergy to any of the chemicals in fingernail polish, before you buy, you need to read the product label carefully to check the ingredient list for allergens.
Allergy Symptoms Including Headache
The nail polish fragrance wafts up toward your eyes and face, especially if you do your own nails, contacting the skin around your eyes. Touching your eyes or face before your nails are completely dry can also produce symptoms. Symptoms of a mild to moderate contact allergy include redness, itching, hives, swelling, blistering and pain. Get medical help immediately if you develop a headache along with other allergy symptoms.
Red nail polish reactions
It has been suggested that red nail polish causes nail allergies more often than other colors. Red nail polish does have red dye and, according to Emedicine, is more likely than other polishes to cause staining that can last several days. However, Emedicine did not report that there are more allergic reactions to red polish.
One additive that some red nail polishes have is carmine, a dye from ground up insects that has a particularly vivid red color. Carmine has been found to cause contact dermatitis reactions when added to red lipstick and eye shadow. Carmine has been also shown to sometimes cause severe allergic reactions when ingested or breathed. When you see “cochineal extract,” “carmine,” “crimson lake,” “natural red 4,” “C.I. 75470,” or “E120” on a product label, be aware that these terms refer to the red dye in your cosmetics – which is derived from the dried bodies of female cochineal insects.
A recent study has also found that a chemical, TPHP, found in more than 49% of nail polish brands, might be an endocrine disruptor, which means it interferes with hormones, and can show reproductive and developmental problems; Scientists say it may be linked to weight gain.
If you experience an allergic reaction to fingernail polish, remove the polish from your nails immediately. Wash your nails thoroughly with a mild soap and warm water to clear away all traces of offending chemical substances. If you suffer a mild reaction, consult your physician about a treatment plan best suited to your needs.

There are basically two types of moisturizer; facial moisturizer and body moisturizer.
Facial moisturizer is usually designed to avoid any allergic reactions (red spots, itching, dryness,…), and most importantly, acne (non-comedogenic). The use of certain medications such as anti-acne treatments can produce considerable facial dryness especially during winter. This is why the careful choice of the right moisturizer is important: you have to pick one that suits your skin type and the treatment you’ve been prescribed.
Eye Contour moisturizer is a particular type of face moisturizer. The skin of the eye contour area is the finest and most delicate of your face, making that much more vulnerable. That is why it is prone to dehydration and loss of both elasticity and firmness, which is further exacerbated by constant muscular movement (squinting, blinking, etc.) As a result, it is the area where the first visible signs of premature aging (fine lines, crows’ feet, etc.), stress and fatigue (puffiness, bags under the eyes) appear.
Body moisturizer is a must, regardless of males or females, and different skin types. Cold and winter cause skin becomes dry and flake, and dry skin becomes itchy and discomfort. Body moisturizer is usually light textured, easy to spread, and must be used frequently on all body surface from neck to toes.
Hands moisturizer is a particular type of body moisturizer. Hands are constantly exposed to water, chemical detergents and weather changes, thus becoming chapped and or cracked quickly. Hands moisturizer must have a protecting and healing function as well as a hydration and nourishing one.
4 classes of textures
There are four basic classes of moisturizer; ointments, oils, creams (emulsions) and lotions. They are listed in decreasing order of moisturizing power.
Ointment moisturizer has the greatest ability to trap moisture in the skin, but it has the greasy consistency and feel of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. People often shy away from using it because of the greasy feel, but this can be minimized by applying a small amount and rubbing it into the skin well.
Oil moisturizer is less greasy but still effective. Examples of oils that can be applied directly to the skin include baby oil, mineral oil, vegetable oil, and bath oil. Bath oils used in the bath water make the tub too slippery and should not be used. It is preferable to apply bath oils after getting out of the tub or shower, just as you would other moisturizer, directly to damp skin. Then, a light towelling off is recommended, to partially dry the skin.
Cream moisturizer is a semi-solid emulsion which is a mixture of oil and water. This category is divided into two types:
Oil-in-water (O/W) creams which are composed of small droplets of oil dispersed in a continuous phase; they are more comfortable and cosmetically accepted as they are less greasy and easily washed off by water.
Water-in-oil (W/O) creams which are composed of small droplets of water dispersed in a continuous oily phase. Water-in-oil creams moisturize better as they provide an oily barrier which reduces water loss of the skin.
Cream moisturizer is usually white. It is absorbed by the skin when rubbed, without leaving any greasy feel. As a result it tends to be more popular than ointments.
Lotion moisturizer is a suspension of oily chemicals in alcohol and water. Lotion moisturizer is generally the least greasy and the most pleasant to use, therefore quite popular. However, because of its alcohol content, it can be somewhat drying when used repeatedly compared to ointments and creams.
Sensitive skin, beware!
Some moisturizers contain chemicals that can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions in some people (e.g., fragrances, preservatives, urea, lanolin,..).
So, what is the right moisturizer type for your skin?
Within a given moisturizer class, the choice of which one to use is a matter of personal preference and skin type. The bottom line is: the greaser the skin, the lighter a moisturizer’s texture should be. Do not hesitate to adjust moisturizers’ class with the change of seasons. What is perfect for your skin during summer will not moisturize enough in winter.
And remember, to be fully effective, it is necessary to use a moisturizer at least twice daily; the most important time during the day is right after a short lukewarm bath or shower.
