    [Self-tanning and sunless tanning products].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Aug 17. Epub 2017 Aug 17.
    109, route de Limonest, 69380 Lissieu, France. Electronic address:
    Practically all currently available self-tanning products have as their active ingredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which may or may not be combined with erythrulose, tyrosine derivatives, and occasionally a naphthoquinone. The resulting skin tone, which resembles a natural tan, is due to chemical combination of the DHA with amino acids in the skin through the Maillard reaction. Polymer pigments known as melanoidins are formed and are fixed in the stratum corneum, where they remain until corneocyte desquamation occurs. Read More

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a ubiquitous Gram-negative bacillus characterized by its greenish color and sweetish smell, is at the origin of potentially severe forms of dermatosis, such as ecthyma gangrenosum which marks immunosuppression or reveals blood-poisoning, especially in children. It frequently colonizes chronic wounds and serious burns, and spongiotic or acantholytic dermatosis, especially when severe or localized in skinfolds. It requires special care because of its high resistance to antibiotics and antiseptics. Read More

    In the last 10 years, numerous studies have been published that throw new light on rosacea, in all areas of the disease. This overview summarises all the key developments, based on the indexed bibliography appearing in Medline between 2007 and 2017. Recent epidemiological data show that the prevalence of the disease is doubtless greater than estimated hitherto (more than 10% of adults in some countries) and that we should not overlook rosacea in subjects with skin phototypes V or VI, a condition that exists on all continents.
