Thanks Davpet

But don't you think the percentages and frequency of use are rather extreme for the face. I wonder quite how many people could actually do that in practice.

Antiageing creams work at the surface at most - can smooth out the epidermis, even out tone, remove faint lines and thats about it. Don't expect anything against reducing pores, sagging or loosing fat ...

Hi Sheellah

Actually as you can see the Bioderma already has a high SPF (UVB protection). It's the low UVA protection (sometimes stated as PPD) which I find disappointing.

And Bioderma is a ver ...

Hello Sheellah

Your post intrigued me so I did some searching; this technology is available already in two sunscreens on the market. Unfortunately the UVA protection is a little on the low side in ...

Now, about the Oat BG. One customer has given me extensive feedback on his experiences with the Oat BG. I believe he uses an UV light to assess solubility.

From experience Diacneal is surprisingly irritating too because it's a combination of 0.1% retinaldehyde with glycolic. For sensitive skin I think you'd be better off getting the other Avene products ...

You could try sea buckthorn oil. Or you could also use retinol instead of Retin-A, although it won't be as potent. Or you could make your own Vitamin A skin product, and combine it with other ingredie ...

I'm quite sensitive to retinoids too, but have found retinaldehyde products satisfactory (look for Avene Ystheal or Eluage). If you've got sensitive skin then heavy duty exfoliation is not for you ei ...

Actually you can use minerals with both Mexoryl and Tinosorb. The problem lies with the other chemicals used in the screen. Almost all Mexoryl screens also use Avobenzone and so do the Biodermas sol ...

I believe the ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is more effective, but it's hard to say because the only serious half face study combined it with L-Ascorbic.

This was interesting though. It's a compariso ...

That's interesting.
Would you know where I could read a little more detail on the function of receptors in skin?

Hi all

I'm wondering if anyone has seen any evidence to back up the following statement or whether it's just a theory? If so, is it a commonly held theory because I haven't come across it before? ...
