(Thinkstock photos/Getty Images) RELATED Orange, honey for healthy skin Acne is one skin aliment that will give you sleepless nights. It doesn’t make for a very good ‘close-up pic’ for Facebook and becomes a bother when you’re dressing up for that important social event. However, stressing over acne will only amplify the skin problem. Yes it’s true, stress can (visit site) affect acne. We take a look at the link between stress and acne and why stressing over acne will just make it worse. This may be a common scenario, when it’s time for an exam, test or interview you start noticing skin problems like pimples and acne. This is when you run helter-skelter searching for the perfect cream to squash out the problem. For a long time doctors have pointed out that stress affects acne, but scientists had a tough time joining the dots. But recently scientists have thrown a hint into the abyss of dermatology; they suggest that cells that produce the oily substance sebum have receptors for stress hormones.

The New Wave in Skincare Products for Your Skin Type
Ninety percent of all melanomas are due to environmental damage, and these types of melanomas are on the rise. Melanomas are most common in white men who are 60 and older. They are the most common individuals to get a melanoma, and often in that population they are missed because some men do not go to the doctor or get checked regularly. The other population that melanoma is missed in is African-Americans and Asians, who can get melanomas on their bottom of their feet (an area that sometimes is not checked). All of these skin cancers are painless but can spread when they’re a millimeter thick. That’s why melanoma is so lethal it is painless and it spreads early. Q: What are some preventive steps we can take? A: To prevent skin cancer, we encourage a multistep approach. Sunscreens alone will not totally protect you.

Kline Marks 10th Anniversary of Professional Skin Care Research with an Exclusive Look at Seven New Untapped Markets
While depressed consumer spending means some have turned to buying quality private label products because they offer greater volumes at a lower price, consumers are still willing to pay extra for a premium product in order to get great quality at a good price. This is particularly true in the Skincare sector, where consumers continue to consider private labels as less effective than branded products, resulting in low private label penetration rates. The French Skincare sector was worth US$4,281 million in 2012 and is expected to record a CAGR of -0.2% through to 2017. The market will record positive, albeit slow, growth during this period in volume and local currency terms; however, fluctuations in exchanges rates, particularly during 2012, have added complexity to the market for international companies. Body Care and Facial Care accounted for 86.5% of Skincare packs used in France in 2012, resulting in high demand for plastic Bottles, Tubes, and Tubs. These often use Flip/Snap Tops and Screw Tops closures, while Box outers were often used for premium products, particularly in Facial Care. Only 6.4% of Skincare products by value are used by French consumers because of ethical or responsibility concerns, yet the number of organic and ethically-produced Skincare products in France is increasing rapidly. This is because consumers often equate organic with quality, regardless of any ethical considerations. Consumers are increasingly concerned by the health effects of chemicals such as parabens and are wary of synthetic formulas.

Don’t fall behind on skin care
Three secret ingredientsosilift, indinyl and cellactive-formhydrate and condition facial skin, and even help keep makeup in place by improving the foundational surface. Making No Needle Fix an even more brilliant argument against injections is its $20 price point and easy accessibility at Target stores nationwide and online. Road-test grade: A. Though its not possible to judge long-term effects with a short-term trial, our week-long No Needle Fix test in Desert Hot Springs, California, got off to a good start. Natural mineral pool rejuvenation got underway at The Spring Resort and Spa , regularly voted the best boutique spa in the area. While my body benefited from the taking of the waters, my face benefited from twice-daily use of No Needle Fix, applied by simply massaging a small amount onto my face and neck. After repeating the process another three days at the truly special, ultra-private Miracle Hill mineral springs oasis, The Hacienda , I absolutely noticed a smoother feel and look. Mission number two: to find manscaping products that help level the beauty-regimen playing field for the hairier sex. Women have typically benefited from 99.99% of skincare product development and treatments, but modern men are now receiving much needed attention from the new Nip + Man line of grooming products. After three years of research and development, Nip + Man now includes Manotox: a plumping, firming moisturizer to reduce lines and smooth the surface appearance.

Market Focus: Trends and Developments in the Skincare Sector in France
“Over the past decade, our Professional Skin Care Global Series study has provided a comprehensive and accurate coverage of market shifts, challenges, and opportunities in the industry, enabling our clients to access the critical data they need to stay ahead of competition,” says Karen Doskow, Kline’s industry manager. She adds, “As the mature markets have stabilized, we’re harnessing that knowledge and expertise to shift our focus toward those markets where we expect to see the greatest potential.” Among the most notable trends of the past 10 years, according to Doskow, market consolidation and technology evolution have been hallmarks of the industry. In the United States, for example, the top five brands now account for nearly 40% of market share, and beauty leaders, like Procter & Gamble and L’Oreal, have acquired professional brands to add these products to their portfolios. As a result, the technologies and active ingredients once found exclusively in professional skin care lines have infiltrated the mass market, giving consumers broader access to professional-quality products across a wider range of price points, while also expanding the reach of mass-market manufacturers. This has kept professional product manufacturers on their toes, driving continuous innovation to develop new products that promise greater efficacy, novel delivery systems, and other breakthrough developments. From a regional perspective, Kline has documented the global wave of market growth in detail as it peaked in North America and built momentum in Western Europe and the BRIC countries. Industry growth in the United States peaked in 2008 at 7.5%, before levelling off at 3% in 2012. In Europe, 2007 saw growth surge to a 9.5% CAGR, followed by a steady decline to a CAGR of just under 2% in 2012 in the wake of the global recession. China and South Korea have both continued to post stellar increases of over 9% CAGR respectively, to buoy global markets with an overall 5.3% growth rate.
