How to avoid the ‘superficial’ beauty benefits of skincare products

Posted October 19, 2018 05:03:06 If you’re one of the millions of Americans who don’t get the benefits of high-quality skincaria, you’re not alone. 

According to a new study, you may be suffering from “superfacial acne” or a combination of skin problems.

The study was carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and found that the appearance of pimples in the cheeks, jawline, and forehead of Caucasian women can be caused by factors like sun exposure, pollution, and chemical pollutants in their environment.

“The skin can develop an appearance of puffy, rough, or even smelly patches on its surface,” said the study’s lead author, Melanie L. Cramer, an assistant professor in the School of Physical and Environmental Science at the UW-Madison. 

“If you do not have these factors in place, then you can experience pimples on your cheeks, or on your forehead,” said Cramer.

 “We were interested in the impact of these factors on the development of facial acne.

We wanted to see if the pimples we saw were the result of pollution or if they were caused by chemicals in the environment.” 

The researchers took skin samples from 20 women who had recently developed acne.

They then compared the results of these samples to data collected from a large sample of people with similar acne profiles.

According to the study, the more pollutants a woman was exposed to, the greater her risk of developing acne. 

The results show that pollution is linked to a greater likelihood of developing facial acne in Caucasian women.

“These pollutants were linked to higher levels of total arsenic in the water, and higher levels in the air, both of which are known to increase the risk of skin cancer,” said study co-author Laura Rauhut, an associate professor in UW-Milwaukee’s School of Environmental Health Sciences.

Cramer explained that this means that the chemicals in our environment are directly damaging our skin.

She said that it’s possible that pollutants could even be helping to promote acne by causing it to produce chemicals that are more susceptible to skin damage.

Although there is no cure for acne, there are several treatments for acne that can help to control it.

The researchers also found that women who were exposed to more pollutants had a lower level of melanin, which is a pigment in the skin.

Cramer said that melanin has been linked to the development and repair of the skin, and that if the skin is damaged, this can lead to the loss of the pigment.

In addition, women with acne are more likely to have anemia, which means that their cells have less oxygen, which can lead them to be less productive in their daily lives.

Researchers also found a correlation between exposure to pollutants and acne.

Predicting how your acne will look in 10 years is important, said Cram
