Acne Skin Care
Target acne blemishes and breakouts with professional cosmeceutical acne skin care products
You’d be forgiven for assuming that a spotty face is synonymous with teenage acne and everybody grows out of it. But acne can happen later in life too, so unfortunately you’re not immune, whatever your age. Which means you need to know about the best acne treatments on the skin care market.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world and it’s estimated that 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 will have it at some point.
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.
Essentially, acne is caused by excess sebum. any things can cause your sebum production to become over-stimulated. This produces oil, which then mixes with things like the hairs on your skin or dirt. Your pores then become clogged.
Bacteria (especially one called Propionibacterium acnes) can then get trapped inside the pores and multiply. This causes swelling and redness — which is the start of acne.
At NASCENT Skin & Beauty Clinic we offer an array of in-clinic treatments to address acne and acne scarring including IPL Laser Skin Rejuvenation, LED Light Phototherapy, Chemical Skin Peels, Tailored Acne Facials and High Frequency Treatments. The specific treatment/s would be recommended after a COMPLIMENTARY Skin Consultation and Analysis. Whilst treatments will provide immediate and ongoing benefits in addressing acne, a daily skin care routine using selected professional products is essential to keep skin healthy and give it the ability to reduce acne breakouts.
BEST ACNE SKIN CARE
Want to help reduce the severity of breakouts? Try using a gentle cleanser that 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 moisturiser just 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.
