[one_third]Skin care regimen for acne prone skin[/one_third] [two_third_last][tabgroup]
[tab title=”Acne skin“] Acne is a consequence of overactive oil glands, triggered by hormonal changes (increase in testosterone levels during puberty, contraceptives, stress) as well as an increase in cell turnover in the pore. Oils and dead cells get stuck under the skin surface resulting in white bump called a COMEDONE. In the best case scenario the debris are pushed to the surface, a BLACKHEAD occurs because the oils of the pore opening oxidize with air. If the COMEDONE gets stuck under the skin it turns into a lovely pimple; eventually the acne bacteria that thrives in an oxygen free & oil rich environment infects the pimple into a PUSTULE and triggers a huge inflammatory response resulting in a painful CYST, acne scaring and pigmentation[gap height=”1”]  Acne in your 30’s is often due to stress because stress triggers a response from your adrenals that in turn release testosterone. You canot wash acne away in fact over washing traps oils under the skin creating a brewing broth for the acne bacteria.[/tab]

[tab title=”Fix it” icon=”wrench”]The solution is to keep the skin moist & supple to avoid clogged pores, use Vitamin A derivative to push the debris out of the pore, create a low pH/oxygen rich environment to fight bacterial infection![list]

[list_item icon=”check”]Cleanse in the evening then use a low pH toner; only tone in the morning. [/list_item][list_item icon=”check”]Avoid over washing as it traps oils under the skin.[/list_item][list_item icon=”check”]Treat your skin with a Vitamin A serum.[/list_item]
[list_item icon=”check”]Your moisturizer should contain anti-inflammatory ingredients (propolis, chamomile) to prevent scars.[/list_item][list_item icon=”check”]Do not let pustule go out of control as it will result in scaring, come for a facial with extractions once a month and we will teach you how to deal with your acne.[/list_item]

[list_item icon=”check”]Use the correct spot treatment. If you have PUSTULES you need an Oxygen releasing gel with Benzoyl peroxide or a topical antiseptic. If you have a CYST you need an anti-inflammatory spot treatment [/list_item]
