Common Skin Concern

Congestion

Skin congestion is a prevalent skin issue characterized by the presence of blackheads, milia, and an uneven skin texture. The complexion of congested skin tends to appear thick and lacklustre.

While congestion shares similarities with acne, it can eventually lead to acne breakouts if left unattended. A simple method to identify congested skin is by running your hand over your face. If you feel bumps, flakes, roughness, irritation, or unevenness in your skin texture, it's probable that you're experiencing some form of congestion.

What Causes Skin Congestion?

In simple terms, congestion occurs when dead skin cells, sweat, impurities, and oil (sebum) accumulate in the pores. The primary cause of congestion is often an insufficient skincare routine.

Our skin naturally sheds dead cells and produces sweat and oil, but congestion arises when we fail to adequately cleanse our skin or do so infrequently.

Moreover, a compromised or weakened skin barrier can contribute to congestion and uneven texture. Factors such as an unhealthy diet, smoking, stress, lack of sleep, and using skincare products that don’t suit our skin can all lead to this impairment.

If your skin is acting up, it might benefit from a reset. Begin by focusing on basic skincare practices at home.

Signs of Congestion

Signs of Congestion

Dry Dehydrated Skin
Dehydrated Skin

Dehydration occurs when the skin lacks sufficient water and fails to retain it properly. This condition often indicates an impaired skin barrier. In an ideal state, a healthy skin barrier effectively maintains the skin's hydration levels. However, when the barrier is compromised, moisture loss results in dry, rough, and occasionally flaky skin.

Signs of Acne - Blackheads
Blackheads

Blackheads form due to the accumulation of sebum, dead skin cells, and other impurities that block the pores. When this buildup comes into contact with air, oxidation occurs, giving blackheads their distinctive black or brown coloration.

Signs of Acne - Whiteheads
Dull Skin

When skin is congested, it tends to look dull and thick. This is because as skin cells mature, they ascend through the skin layers, becoming drier and older upon reaching the surface. In congested skin, these dead cells accumulate on the surface without being adequately shed.

Milia
Milia

Milia are small, painless white bumps filled with keratin that can appear on the nose, cheeks, or around the eyes. Unlike pimples, milia lack an opening on the skin's surface, so attempting to pop or squeeze them can result in scarring and skin damage.

Such an amazing package! Booked the groupon deal which was a great price at around $90. The amount that was included in it was just unreal! Amazing massage, facial, back scrub, eyebrow tint and wax and some refreshments at the end. I was super nervous about having my eyebrows done by somebody else as I usually just do them myself but the lady taking care of me for them spot on! The clinic owner was so warm and friendly and has some amazing self created skin and makeup products. A great day 💗

I bought the 2 hour special on Groupon for myself and my mother. We both really enjoyed the session. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and inviting. My only suggestion is when other staff members come in to watch/learn, it's good practice to ask for the customers consent prior. I was quite surprised to see another person watching, when I turned onto my back. As I hadn't heard someone come in or was asked if I was okay with someone watching.

I've been going to this salon for the past 3 years and I can honestly say that my skin is the best it's ever been. The packages are reasonably priced, there is no other salon that can give the same value. I recommend to experience their service personally so you can judge for yourself.
