Why Powdered Cleanser Is a Good Bet for Gentle Exfolation

There are few things more satisfying than a smooth, freshly exfoliated face—whether you’re partial to peels and acids, or still using the same walnut scrub you first snagged in sixth grade (though we should warn you: it may be time to swap it in for a newer model). But as temperatures dip, it’s smart to consider a powdered cleanser, which offers a gentler, more controlled approach to exfoliation that’s less likely to disrupt your sensitive skin barrier.

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier should be top of mind all year long, of course—it’s your first layer of defense against damage from pollution, UV rays, and environmental months—but this outermost layer is especially prone to problems in colder months. It’s no secret, after all, that winter weather isn’t easy on the epidermis: When icy outdoor temperatures collide with dry air, high thermostat settings, standard seasonal stress, and indoor environmental irritants, it’s

Regina King Is Fighting to End Racial Inequities in Skin Care

Regina King: Vaseline knows how passionate I am about young, Black girls being invisible and how I want to empower them. So our conversations started as a mutual desire for a philanthropic component. Then the pandemic hit, followed by the uprisings around Breonna Taylor’s, George Floyd’s, and Ahmaud Arbery’s killings, so together we decided it was important to shift the discussion toward topics that were pressing. 

What we found was that the systemic issues that already existed in our country were being magnified as a result of the coronavirus—and the people protesting were risking their health to change the system. We wanted to do something that addresses these disparities, and that’s how our project evolved into equity in skin care.

I’m very lucky to have access to a dermatologist. And while there are a lot of people who do have access to one, either their derm isn’t Black nor are

Singing to preterm infants during kangaroo care reduces maternal anxiety and supports the mother-infant relationship

Premature births are stressful experiences that increase the risk of anxiety for mothers and may hinder the development of interaction between mother and infant. A new study indicates that the combination of singing and kangaroo care boosts the wellbeing of the mothers of preterm infants, also making it easier for them to establish a connection with their baby.

When a child is born before term, the mother and baby are physically separated due to the hospital care required by the latter. Mothers of preterm infants often experience stress in the hospital, and their worry for the baby’s survival may be considerable. This heightens their risk of anxiety and depression, particularly among mothers of infants whose birth weight is very low or who are born very early. Maternal stress and depressive symptoms can also pose a risk to the infant’s further development.

Singing to preterm infants during kangaroo care boosts maternal wellbeing

When a child is born before term, the mother and baby are physically separated due to the hospital care required by the latter. Mothers of preterm infants often experience stress in the hospital, and their worry for the baby’s survival may be considerable. This heightens their risk of anxiety and depression, particularly among mothers of infants whose birth weight is very low or who are born very early. Maternal stress and depressive symptoms can also pose a risk to the infant’s further development.

Researchers from the University of Helsinki contributed to a study investigating the effects of singing during kangaroo care on maternal wellbeing and the mother-infant relationship after preterm birth.

In kangaroo care, the preterm infant is placed on the parent’s chest to establish skin-to-skin contact. Due to its developmentally supporting outcomes, the method has consolidated its position as part of the standard care for preterm infants in Finland,

£37

From pore-cleaning salicylic acid to line-smoothing retinol, some of the most effective ingredients in our skin-care routines are acids. Used excessively or incorrectly, however, acids can also cause irritation, redness, and inflammation, which means if you’ve got sensitive skin, chances are you’ve probably ruled them off already.

While it might sound completely counterintuitive, incorporating acids into your skin-care regimen could actually improve skin sensitivities over time. Understanding which ingredients to choose, how frequently to use them, and, more specifically, the formula best suited for your sensitivity, tends to be where the confusion lies.
