The skin is the largest organ of the body and as such requires nourishment and care.
At AWE Cosmeceuticals™ we recognise that everyone’s skin is unique. Individual skin chemistry has an impact on the effect a skin care product will produce.
Acne Skin Care
Acne is a skin condition which is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, known more commonly as the hair follicle and sebaceous gland. Acne is therefore often present in areas with a high concentration of sebaceous glands such as the face, chest and back.
Pigmentation Skin Care
Pigmentation, unlike a tan, results in areas of skin discolouration, such as freckles, solar lentigines (known most commonly as ‘age spots’) and melasma or hormonally related pigmentations (sometimes referred to as ‘pregnancy mask’).
Rosacea Skin Care
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterised by redness (erythema), visible capillaries (talangiectasia) and in some cases inflamed papules and pustules.
Ageing & Skin Care
A number of internal and external factors contribute to the visible signs of ageing of our skin.
The widely accepted theory of the skin ageing process is that Free radicals or Oxidative stress produce abnormal cells. These alter the DNA eventually causing cellular demise.
Sun damaged Skin Care
UVA and UVB rays irradiate the skin resulting in numerous free radicals and inflammatory responses.
Skin Care Glossary
Collagen is the major protein found in the skin. It is tough and fibrous, it is the primary constituent in collagenous connective tissue. Collagen is produced by fibroblasts (specialised cell). Unlike elastin, collagen is not intended to stretch, it provides the skin with tensile strength.
