Sebaceous Filaments Vs. Blackheads

Sebaceous Filaments Vs. Blackheads – What’s the Difference? by: Jen Okhiria February 5, 2019 Updated on February 7, 2019 If you’ve ever suffered a smattering of blackheads that just don’t clear away, take a closer look. You might not be dealing with blackheads at all, but sebaceous filaments instead. While similar to blackheads, sebaceous filaments are a different animal altogether. What Are Sebaceous Filaments? Unlike blackheads, sebaceous filaments are not a clogged hair follicle that needs to be cleared away. Rather, they are a completely normal function of the skin.

Lilikoi Sun Defense

Lilikoi Sun Defense Lilikoi Sun Defense Collection How does it work? While both mineral and chemical sunscreens protect your skin from the sun’s powerful rays, the way all-mineral protection works is much different.  Mineral formulations use natural compounds like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to block the sun from your skin, whereas chemical sunscreens change UV rays into heat, which is then absorbed and released by your skin.  A simple way to understand how mineral sunscreen works is to imagine the sun’s harmful rays ‘reflected’ upon contact with the top dermal layers of the skin. Shield yourself from the elements with the 3 all-mineral products.  They are designed to protect you from environmental stressors, including pollution, blue light and the sun.  Layer them together for comprehensive protection or wear them individually with other products from your skin care routine.  Mix and match with the rest of your Eminence favorites.   Lilikoi…
