As we love summer - summer often does NOT love our skin.
Fresh air and fresh fruits are certainly good for us but the healthiest sun-kissed look really comes from the bottle not the beach.
Acne prone skin is not an exception and requires a special attention by the end of the summer and in the Fall since summer sun , salty water and outdoor fun may actually require you to apply extra moisture to your skin WITHOUT clogging your pores and exasperating your acne symptoms.
AcnEase® is a clinically validated Botanical Therapeutics® acne treatment that not only breaks the cycle of acne, but also ELIMINATES and PREVENTS acne from the inside out. A “better than natural” trade secret blend of the highest quality grade herbs, AcnEase proprietary ingredients restore the balance disrupted by the factors that cause acne and return the sebaceous glands to a balanced state so they produce a normal amount of sebum (skin oil).
Though exercise is good for your weight, agility, stamina, cardio, and managing stress, it can also carry some unexpected and not very pleasant effects.
However, if we know what these side-effects are and learn how to control or prevent them, we can fully enjoy benefits of all form of exercising.
It is not easy to keep caring about our skin if we feel no one will see us, if our routine is broken, when we feel lonely, depressed, un-productive, anxious about our future and striped from power to control our lives. In recent weeks, there is NO ONE who did NOT experienced at least one of those feelings at least once.
But while a full make-up at 7:00 am may not be most important on your agenda today keeping up your normal skin routine and even enhancing it by few important and relevant changes is very important
As a teenager struggling with acne, you couldn’t wait for adulthood to help get rid of it because all the creams and potions you used were not effective. But you are all grown now and sadly the “adulthood medication” didn’t work for you—you’re still at war with Acne, but it’s better now because you can afford more expensive solutions but yet again, they still aren’t effective and the dream of unblemished glass skin is still as far as it once was.
Between having a family, working, keeping up with family and friends (and surviving the awful traffic), you still haven’t figured out your skin. You’ve gone from antibiotics, lotions and creams to facials, herbal teas and even prayer. To make matters worse, you also have relics from your darker past (acne marks). We see you; we understand your struggle and guilt. You barely even remember to drink water at times, talk more of any daily 10-step skincare routines.
What’s the right way to cover zits with makeup? Covering up any pimples with the most full coverage foundation and concealer is the knee-jerk reaction for most of us, right? I mean, covering them up just makes them look like they’re not there anymore…
Or, at least that’s what the effect is supposed to be. In reality, it can often look very obvious when someone is trying—and failing—to cover up acne. Luckily, there is a right way to cover up acne with makeup!
However, makeup and acne are a combination that needs to be taken seriously—trying to cover up acne with makeup could be making it worse in some cases. Called acne cosmetica by skin care professionals, it usually manifests as smaller pimples in specific areas of the face. For example, pimples around the lip area could be signs of the lipstick being the culprit.
Have you ever wondered to think if it’s a myth or not that chocolate causes zits? The link between diet and acne isn’t clearly understood—at least, not yet. There’s no doubt that what we eat affects our whole bodies, skin included, but is it really as simple as a chocolate bar or can of soda causing new breakouts the next day?
And that’s not even going into how intense some people’s skin seems to react to certain foods. While the correlation isn’t fully established, a growing number of people claim that particular food groups don’t just break them out—they’re the direct cause of cystic acne.
Did you know that the type of skin you have can influence the type of acne that you have, and how to treat it? Topical treatments have never been one-size-fits all, and it's important to understand your skin type to treat it properly.
While AcnEase is designed to work for all skin types, there are a couple of extra steps that you can take to ensure that your skin is happy and healthy from the inside out that totally depend on your skin type. Your skin type is usually a result of your genetics, but in extreme cases, it can be induced by using the incorrect products for your skin!
The truth about acne is that it can develop anywhere on the body where there are sebaceous glands. While the most common (and visible!) area affected by acne is the face, some of us know by personal experience where else acne can erupt—like the shoulders, back, chest, and even on your backside. Yes, for real—that’s not a joke! Back acne is so common it even has its own terminology, bacne.
That aside, we all know the feeling of wanting to hide parts of our body because of body acne—but that’s sometimes better said than done, especially in the hotter months. So what can you do when you don’t want to be embarrassed by how your back, chest, or shoulders look?
When it comes to acne, it seems like the most common piece of advice given is “Just wash your face!” as if that solves every single cause of acne - hormonal, diet, makeup, whatever. However, if it were really that simple, no one would have acne - ever.
What matters is what you actually wash your face with. There’s no denying that our skin is affected by what we use on it, so why would face wash be an exception?
It may sound a little strange but SKIN s the largest and a very important organ we have.
Skin provides protections for most of our other internal organs, helps to regulate body temperature and our water content, keeps away harmful agents and even bacteria
Skin is also an important part of who we are, our personal ID card, so sometime it is a source of pride and happiness and sometime-a trouble maker
We all know the universal struggle of having clear, flawless skin - but how do we know the path
to clear skin if we don’t know what’s causing our acne?
The causes of acne and breakouts can be sorted into two main causes - internal and external.
Many of you have probably heard claims from commercials, friends and family about miracle acne treatments that work overnight. Then there’s the grandma advise to avoid makeup altogether if you are prone to acne and use your inner beauty to dazzle the world….
Before you start making lifestyle changes that will not work or affect the way you feel about yourself and make hefty purchases for miracle cures that don’t work and contain toxic ingredients that actually damage your skin, here are a few facts you should be aware of.
than 80% of Americans between the ages of 11 and 24 experience some of form of
acne. For some the acne begins at puberty and ends shortly after. While for
others this becomes a lifelong struggle that persists for many years. If your
acne has persisted for longer than 2 years, then the odds are you are suffering
from chronic acne as opposed to acute acne. Acute
acne is the infrequent acne that shows up occasionally as a result of
environmental factors, diet, or a brief hormonal surge. These surface symptoms
can be easily treated with masks, streamers, etc. Though, acute acne and
chronic acne may be caused by different factors, the way they form is the same
in both cases.
