Target acne blemishes and breakouts with professional cosmeceutical acne skin care products.
Acne is a major contributor to low self esteem and self confidence when it comes to facial appearance. Acne is not only seen in adolescents, as many adults also suffer from significant acne. Hormonal changes, bacterial infections and imbalances in your body chemistry can cause acne breakouts which are painful, embarrassing and can lower your self-confidence.
Want to help reduce the severity of breakouts? Try using a gentle cleanserthat cleans thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defences. Some acne treatments can dry out the skin, so further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil… which in turn leads to more breakouts!
Next, follow up with a treatment serum. If you have breakouts, don’t be afraid of the word acid – Salicylic Acid is a common treatment for acne, as it unclogs pores and works as an anti-inflammatory. Botanical ingredients (such as Tea Tree Oil) are also wonderful anti-bacterial agents if you have current breakouts.
If you want to heal acne scars, a powerful serum is your best bet. Look for products with Vitamin A and AHA’s such as Glycolic Acid or Kojic Acid. Vitamin C products are also wonderful to help fade scars and reduce the impact of sun damage.
Don’t skimp on moisturiserjust because you’re breaking out. Your skin needs to be hydrated so it can properly repair itself, so choose a moisturiser in accordance with your skin type.
Make sure you don’t forget your sunscreen – many acne & scarring treatments can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so protecting your skin can make heal time quicker.
