The Concern: Acne

Are you part of the 80%?

Did you know that acne affects more that 80% of us at some point or another in our lives? Contrary to popular belief, acne can occur at any age. The American Academy of Dermatology is finding that acne occurring in adults is increasing, affecting up to 15 percent of women.

Acne-prone or oily skin requires a tailored approach and can be a frustrating obstacle to tackle. Instead of poking and prodding delicate skin, try incorporating targeted products into your routine. The truth is, you may never grow out of your acne and there is no single cure. Acne is a chronic condition that affects millions of teenagers and adults and while it can’t be cured, the good news is that by following a daily skin care regimen for acne treatment you will be able to restore your clear complexion.

Sometime you may find that your skin seems worse when you start a new routine and that is normal as your skin reacts and adjusts to the active ingredients and goes through the cycles it needs to in order to ultimately be clearer and acne free.

NIGHTTIME TREATMENTS

When we sleep is when our skin does its repair work. This is a perfect time to use any special treatment that a doctor may have recommended, for example a topical retinol product, or for spot treatments. It is not uncommon for retinol to cause redness so we often recommend starting with retinol only once a day and every second day until your skin builds up a tolerance.

MASKING

If you’ve noticed a pimple rearing its ugly head, there’s no need to panic. Instead, try adding a face mask to your acne-fighting skin care routine, which can help treat your breakouts in two ways: First, they may offer a direct therapeutic effect using ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to treat the acne directly. Second, they can help complement your acne treatments by hydrating and calming the skin that may be irritated by other acne treatments.
