Skincare tips for people with acne

Acne is a problem that besides being considered a clinical condition is treated as an aesthetic complication that often leads to a lot of insecurity in people who suffer from it. Being one of those people, I know the hardships of emotional damage caused by this problem. Still, if you arm yourself with patience and proper care, you will be able to see your beautiful skin again. Skin deep   1)     Creams and scrubs People with acne usually have skin that produces excess oil. Regular washing with specific products targeted at acne-prone and oily skin can reduce this excess. Regarding the scrubs, they may be suitable for removing residual scars after acne. However, it is suggested to consult a dermatologist who will advise what type of scrub can perform the best for the particular type of acne as well as lotions and gels that would suit the individual perfectly. In general, regular hydration with light creams is recommended all over the face, while harsh acne-fighting products should be applied on acne only.
2)      Home-made remedies Cucumber is one of the easiest and most refreshing natural treatments used for combating acne and moisturizing the skin. Crush the cucumber into a paste and apply it to the affected area. Leave it for 30-45 minutes and then rinse. The tomato can also be used for the treatment of blackheads and to open the pores of the skin, and it also lightens the skin. Cut a piece of tomato and rub it on the skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water. This will help reduce open pores and blackheads. This treatment is excellent for oily skin. Other option is to cut a lemon in half, gently rub the affected area, leave it overnight and rinse your face in the morning or if your skin is sensitive, squeeze the lemon juice and mix it with rose water and apply it to the affected areas like a toner.
3)      Laser treatments Regardless of the severity of acne, the best thing is to always consult the dermatologist as soon as possible, because the faster you see to the problem, the less the possibility of its evolution and therefore scarring. Acne can be treated with a wide range of medical treatments, depending on its evolution, and the causes that originated the problem. Two most recommended treatments for acne are laser procedure, known as photodynamic therapy and dermabrasion for scar removal. These treatments should be done in professional clinics, like this laser clinic in Bondi Junction, to ensure the best possible service. Inside your body   1)      Proper diet Leading a balanced diet and drinking plenty of water will make the body healthier, thus eliminating the acne problem. Some of the best foods to eat when having this skin issue are whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts, fish and legumes. As you can see, these are foods that can be bought in any supermarket and are also easy to include in any diet. Of course, you should try your best to break bad habits such as over-consummation of coffee and alcohol as well as cigarettes.
2)      Hormonal disbalance Sometimes, all the creams and gels, proper diet and treatments could prove ineffective in fighting acne. When this happens, it is likely that the problem is some kind of hormonal change. In this case, dermatologists and doctors prescribe special medication such as Spironolactone pill and birth control pills that keep the hormonal balance stable, thus leading to the decrease of acne inflammation. Everything listed above might seem too complicated or even impossible to do at first, but trust me, when you organize yourself well and seek adequate help, you will start noticing changes for the better almost immediately.

How to Fight Adult Acne

One of those things that are rarely put in the same context is acne and wrinkles. In the majority of cases, acne start to emerge at the beginning of teenage days and usually leave us as we enter our twenties. However, it does happen that people start having acne issues once they begin their adult life, as well as later on. Naturally, all of them are surprised by this occurrence and puzzled by it not knowing what to do. If you’re one of those people, do not despair. Here is how to fight adult acne.   What causes adult acne? One of the most important preconditions for fighting adult acnes is to find out what caused them in the first place. Variousresearch showed that, in the vast majority of cases, women are those that experience adult acne problems. The main reasonforthis is fluctuating hormone levels. It’s closely followed by stress (which is another trigger of changes in hormone levels) and genetics. Those whohave a family history of acne problems are more prone to eventually experiencingthem. Knowing the cause significantly aids infighting the consequences.   Stress relief Stress can havea tremendous negative effect on the body and mind alike.It often triggers a hormonal imbalance for people, especially women, who have never experienced it before.This results in a causal connection that is often hard to resolve. Still, it’s manageable, as long as a person is persistent and has a strong will and desire to do so. Regular exercise, spending as much as possible time outside, quality sleep and a balanced diet are the key to success. Given the fact that we’re exposed to stress on a daily basis, expecting it to go away overnight would be futile. It will take time but the result will be clearly visible.   Daily skin care Although some dermatologists may argue that skin hygiene has littleto do with acne, the results of improved and constant skin care will be promptly noticeable. Follow these guidelines: Don’t wash your face more than two times a day, use a gentle cleanser combined with warm or cool water and using your hands or a gentle washcloth for about 30 seconds per wash. Finally, do not rub your skin to dry it,pat it instead.   Adult acne cosmetic treatment products With a skin thoroughly and regularly cleaned, thefoundation for the maximum positive effects of adult acne cosmetic treatment products is perfectly laid. There’s a great diversity of products for adult acne available. Retinoid creams, sulfur based products and clay masks are just some of the most effective ones. Consulting your dermatologist before choosing a particular one or make a change is very important since not all of the products are universally applicable. For example, Benzoyl peroxide based products tend to dry out the skin and should be used only occasionally.    Medications As it can be concluded from the paragraphs above, putting hormones under control is one of the most effective ways of fighting acne. Birth control pills proved to be very successful, just as some antibiotics are. Aldactone, primarily used for high blood pressure treatment is another efficient remedy. However, if your dermatologist prescribes it, you will need to be patient in order to notice the first results. It usually takes up around three months for Aldactone to kick in.   If you’re one of those adults that experience acne problems, don’t despair. As you can see, there’s a number of ways to fight it. Be patient, always consult your dermatologist about all the steps you take and you will eventually put the issue under control.

A nutritious and balanced diet is very important for your health. It is known that digestive problems may lead to skin impurities, so a healthy diet will improve your digestion. If you want to have a clear glowing skin, you need to take in vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. It is recommended to eat natural protein foods such as fish, white meat, brown rice, buckwheat and other grains, nut, vegetables like tomato and broccoli, etc. All these foods have positive effects on your skin and on your overall health. It is also recommended to eat foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids. These acids reduce inflammation and they are found in salmon, soybeans and walnuts.
