For women who are plagued with greasy skin, the idea of splashing on oil-based products on their face every night no doubt seems like a giant contradiction.

But celebrity facialist Sue Dann has revealed that oil-based products are actually the key to effectively hydrating the skin and ending a cycle that often causes acne.

Sue, the expert behind Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skincare with Omniderm, wants to dispel the notion that oil-based creams are heavy, pore-clogging catastrophes.

And Sue, who has worked with the likes of Sylvia Jeffreys and Chloe Morello, revealed to FEMAIL exactly why we need to stop being so afraid of oil.

Sue noted that many skincare products are water-based, meaning the small oil droplets are 'dispersed throughout the water'.

'Oil-based products are the opposite,' she told Daily Mail Australia. 'Minute water droplets are suspended throughout the oil phase.'

'Water-based products have their place, however it is scientifically proven that they are not that effective when it comes to hydrating the skin. The delivery of many active ingredients are better using oil-based products.'

There are five myths surrounding oil-based products that Sue wants to bust: Oil-based creams are greasy and unpleasant; Oily skin requires oil-free products; Oil-based products clog pores and cause blackheads; Oil-based products are not easily absorbed by the skin.

'Oil-based products are proven to hydrate the skin better and longer than water-based creams,' she explained.

'This property is very much misunderstood and undervalued. An oil-based cream will protect the skin better against external aggressors – it effectively reinforces the skin's own acid mantle.'

With better hydration and better protection of the skin comes a decrease in inflammation, Sue added.

'Decreased inflammation will lead to a reduction of capillaries, and therefore a reduction in redness in the skin.'

'This is all highly beneficial since inflammation is one of the main causes of skin ageing.'

A decrease in inflammation will also allow pigmented skin to eventually slough off and reduce the overall level of pigmentation on the face, Sue added.

She also noted that oil-based products are 'proven to be a superior delivery system for many active ingredients', citing a year-long Italian study that measured skin elasticity.

'The study showed that skin elasticity improved considerably with oil-based cream,' she said. 'No difference in elasticity was observed when water-based cream was used.'

Oil is a vital component for the skin, which will actually produce more oil if we try to strip it with harsh drying products.

'The skin produces oil to protect itself against moisture loss. This is a survival mechanism,' Sue explained. 'Without oil in the skin, we would not survive.'

'If we strip oils out of the skin, we are destroying this vital defence. The skin responds to the threat by producing more oil. Repeated stripping will lead to inflammation and redness.'

By using an oil-free moisturizer, you actually just helping the skin lose even more of this integral moisture.

'This creates a vicious cycle of the skin creating oil,' Sue said. 'Excessive cleansing removes the oil, the skin produces more oil, and the steps repeat. Eventually you end up with inflamed skin.'

And while oily skin is not directly related to acne, Sue explained that dehydrated skin can lead to unsightly spots.

'Dehydration of the skin can actually be one of the causes of acne, as dead skin cells are not sloughed off naturally,' she said.

'This contributes to the blocking of oil glands, which can be the start of a pimple.'

The correct response to oily skin is a gentle cleanser that will remove oil, grime, and make up without stripping the skin.

'An oil-based cream that is formulated to mimic the skin's natural acid mantle should follow this,' Sue said. 'This will slow moisture loss from the skin.'

'If you have oily skin, in our experience it takes about five days of application of an oil-based cream for the skin's natural sebum production to normalise.'

Sue also recommends checking the ingredients in your primers, which she said can become harmful to the skin when they're packed with silicones.

'The idea of a primer is to create an even canvas of the skin for better application of foundations, and a key ingredient employed by most manufacturers to achieve this is silicones,' she explained.

'Yes, it's a good and inexpensive way of getting that all-important smooth as silk finish, but it's a hidden trap.'

'Recent studies from Canada have found that silicones trap dirt, clog pores, cause congestion and acne, and make skin dull and dehydrated.''

'Most worrying of all is that silicones interfere with cell renewal and block beneficial ingredients from being absorbed into the skin's epidermis. They simply do nothing worthwhile for your skin and, to add to that, they are impossible to remove.'

In addition to silicones, Sue also recommends avoiding make up with bismuth oxychloride – a common ingredient that gives a 'shiny pearl effect'.

Before you begin a regime with oil-based products, Sue recommends having your skin diagnosed by a therapist who has been trained in them.

'The therapist will prescribe the correct cream for the skin type and/or concern. Then it is a matter of following the instructions,' she said.

'There may be a short period of adjustment, including possibly some purging – a breakout. The skin will then balance resulting in a healthy glow.'

Sydney seaplane crash: Exhaust fumes affected pilot, report confirms

Published

on

By

The pilot of a seaplane that crashed into an Australian river, killing all on board, had been left confused and disorientated by leaking exhaust fumes, investigators have confirmed.

The Canadian pilot and five members of a British family died in the crash north of Sydney in December 2017.

All were found to have higher than normal levels of carbon monoxide in their blood, a final report has found.

It recommended the mandatory fitting of gas detectors in all such planes.

British businessman Richard Cousins, 58, died alongside his 48-year-old fiancée, magazine editor Emma Bowden, her 11-year-old daughter Heather and his sons, Edward, 23, and William, 25, and pilot Gareth Morgan, 44. Mr Cousins was the chief executive of catering giant Compass.

The family had been on a sightseeing flight in the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver plane when it nose-dived into the Hawkesbury River at Jerusalem Bay, about 50km (30 miles) from the city centre.

The final report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) confirmed the findings of an interim report published in 2020.

It said pre-existing cracks in the exhaust collector ring were believed to have released exhaust gas into the engine bay. Holes left by missing bolts in a firewall then allowed the fumes to enter the cabin.

“As a result, the pilot would have almost certainly experienced effects such as confusion, visual disturbance and disorientation,” the report said.

“Consequently, it was likely that this significantly degraded the pilot’s ability to safely operate the aircraft.”

The ATSB recommended the Civil Aviation Safety Authority consider mandating the fitting of carbon monoxide detectors in piston-engine aircraft that carry passengers.

It previously issued safety advisory notices to owners and operators of such aircraft that they install detectors “with an active warning” to pilots”. Operators and maintainers of planes were also advised to carry out detailed inspections of exhaust systems and firewalls.

Australia unlikely to fully reopen border in 2021, says top official

Published

on

By

Australia is unlikely to fully open its borders in 2021 even if most of its population gets vaccinated this year as planned, says a senior health official.

The comments dampen hopes raised by airlines that travel to and from the country could resume as early as July.

Department of Health Secretary Brendan Murphy made the prediction after being asked about the coronavirus’ escalation in other nations.

Dr Murphy spearheaded Australia’s early action to close its borders last March.

“I think that we’ll go most of this year with still substantial border restrictions,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Monday.

“Even if we have a lot of the population vaccinated, we don’t know whether that will prevent transmission of the virus,” he said, adding that he believed quarantine requirements for travellers would continue “for some time”.

Citizens, permanent residents and those with exemptions are allowed to enter Australia if they complete a 14-day hotel quarantine at their own expense.

Qantas – Australia’s national carrier – reopened bookings earlier this month, after saying it expected international travel to “begin to restart from July 2021.”

However, it added this depended on the Australian government’s deciding to reopen borders.

Australia’s tight restrictions

The country opened a travel bubble with neighbouring New Zealand late last year, but currently it only operates one-way with inbound flights to Australia.

Australia has also discussed the option of travel bubbles with other low-risk places such as Taiwan, Japan and Singapore.

A vaccination scheme is due to begin in Australia in late February. Local authorities have resisted calls to speed up the process, giving more time for regulatory approvals.

Australia has so far reported 909 deaths and about 22,000 cases, far fewer than many nations. It reported zero locally transmitted infections on Monday.

Experts have attributed much of Australia’s success to its swift border lockdown – which affected travellers from China as early as February – and a hotel quarantine system for people entering the country.

Local outbreaks have been caused by hotel quarantine breaches, including a second wave in Melbourne. The city’s residents endured a stringent four-month lockdown last year to successfully suppress the virus.

Other outbreaks – including one in Sydney which has infected about 200 people – prompted internal border closures between states, and other restrictions around Christmas time.

The state of Victoria said on Monday it would again allow entry to Sydney residents outside of designated “hotspots”, following a decline in cases.

While the measures have been praised, many have also criticised them for separating families across state borders and damaging businesses.

Dr Murphy said overall Australia’s virus response had been “pretty good” but he believed the nation could have introduced face masks earlier and improved its protections in aged care homes.

In recent days, Australia has granted entry to about 1,200 tennis players, staff and officials for the Australian Open. The contingent – which has recorded at least nine infections – is under quarantine.

Covid: Brisbane to enter three-day lockdown over single infection

Published

on

By

The Australian city of Brisbane has begun a snap three-day lockdown after a cleaner in its hotel quarantine system became infected with coronavirus.

Health officials said the cleaner had the highly transmissible UK variant and they were afraid it could spread.

Brisbane has seen very few cases of the virus beyond quarantined travellers since Australia’s first wave last year.

It is the first known instance of this variant entering the Australian community outside of hotel quarantine.

The lockdown is for five populous council areas in Queensland’s state capital.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the measure on Friday morning local time, about 16 hours after the woman tested positive.

Ms Palaszczuk said the lockdown aimed to halt the virus as rapidly as possible, adding: “Doing three days now could avoid doing 30 days in the future.”

“I think everybody in Queensland… knows what we are seeing in the UK and other places around the world is high rates of infection from this particular strain,” she said.

“And we do not want to see that happening here in our great state.”

Australia has reported 28,500 coronavirus infections and 909 deaths since the pandemic began. By contrast, the US, which is the hardest-hit country, has recorded more than 21 million infections while nearly 362,000 people have died of the disease.The lockdown will begin at 18:00 on Friday (08:00 GMT) in the Brisbane city, Logan and the Ipswich, Moreton and Redlands local government areas.

Residents will only be allowed to leave home for certain reasons, such as buying essential items and seeking medical care.

For the first time, residents in those areas will also be required to wear masks outside of their homes.

Australia has faced sporadic outbreaks over the past year, with the most severe one in Melbourne triggering a lockdown for almost four months.

A pre-Christmas outbreak in Sydney caused fresh alarm, but aggressive testing and contact-tracing has kept infection numbers low. The city recorded four local cases on Friday.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government has pledged to start mass vaccinations in February instead of March as was planned.

Lockdown interrupts ‘near normal’ life in Brisbane

Simon Atkinson, BBC News in Brisbane

At 8:00 today I popped to the local supermarket for some bread, milk – and because it’s summer here – a mango. I was pretty much the only customer.

When I went past the same shop a couple of hours later it was a different story – 50 people standing in the drizzle – queuing to get inside as others emerged with bulging shopping bags. “Heaps busier than Christmas,” a cheery trolley attendant told me. “It’s off the scale”.

Despite the “don’t panic” messages from authorities, pictures on social media show it’s a pattern being repeated across the city.

While shutdowns are common around the world, the tough and sudden stay-at-home order for Brisbane has caught people on the hop here after months of near normality.

But while such a rapid, hard lockdown off the back of just a single case of Covid-19 will seem crazy in some parts of the world, I’ve not come across too many people complaining.

And I don’t think that’s just because Aussies love to follow a rule. This is the first time the UK variant of the virus has been detected in the community in Australia.

And nobody here wants Brisbane to go through what Melbourne suffered last year. Even if it means going without mangoes.
