Dealing with Acne

Acne is the most common skin problem happens to almost everyone, and usually begins with skin congestion or commonly known as comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). When comedones become infected, it can break out and cause acne, open pores and eventually scars. Start preventing acne by solving skin congestion.

1. Proper skin care routine. Choose products that are non-comedogenic and free from:-

• Lanolin: A fatty substance obtains from sheep’s wool. It has moisturizing properties, but pore clogging capabilities as well.
• Fragrance: Artificial fragrance contributes to acne infections
• Mineral Oil: This oil has been shown to cause pore clogging and exacerbate acne

and follow the below steps for proper skin care:-

StepsRemarks
1. Deep Cleansing Always remember to use a makeup remover to thoroughly remove all makeup. Use a face wash designed for oily skin and pat dry the skin gently without vigorous rubbing. Avoid over drying cleanser with SLS (sodium laurel sulfate).
2. Serum, Moisturizer & Masque Look for products that have excellent anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and at the same time able to control skin oiliness and dry up the skin without causing skin irritation. Common used ingredients include tea tree oil, peppermint oil, benzoyl peroxide, isotretinoin, salicylic acid, licorice root, sulfur and etc.
3. Sun Protection Choose a light weight sun protection with at least SPF 15 and PA++.
4. Foundation Keep makeup as light as possible. Oil free foundation or makeup products will be a good option. 

 

2. Do not squeeze the acnes which may further irritate the skin and possibly damage the skin tissue.

3. Limit the use of bloater. Overuse of bloater giving the sebaceous glands wrong information of skin dryness and causing excessive sebum secretion.

4. Promote a healthy lifestyle
• Lessen the pressure of life
• Regular exercise helps flush out toxins in our body.
• Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
• Get sufficient and quality sleep for 8 hours

5. Be patient, clear skin may take time. No product or treatment works overnight. You will see faster results if you have a level 4 acne problem, the more serious your problem, the faster you should see results.

6. Use your acne product or treatment consistently and appropriately.

7. Continue to use your treatment products even after the acne has been cleared, as acne treatment products do not cure acne, they control it. (an exception to this rule is Accutane – an oral consumption medication to control hormone imbalance).
