How to Tell if Acne Has Emotionally Impacted You:  Overcoming the Emotional Effects of Acne

Acne is not just a skin disease - it is often a "soul" disease as well. The psychological and social impact of acne is a growing and serious concern that can have severe short and long-term emotional side effects - but the good news is that these symptoms can be controlled!

 

Acne affects adolescents at a time when they are developing their personalities. A growing number of adults are suffering from acne (the average age of an acne sufferer increased during the last ten years from 20.5 to 26.5 years old). Adults with acne have a larger probability to get chronic acne, which forces them to deal with this issue for a long time, and address it together with all the other adult challenges he or she faces.

5 Tips on How to Be Acne Savvy this Summer

5 Tips on How to Be Acne Savvy this Summer

We all long for Summer to arrive since it's a beautiful, fun time of year. But, summertime can also bring oily skin, blackheads and more acne breakouts. So - while using the right acne treatment, remember also to make some adjustments in your skin care and diet so you can keep your skin healthy on those fantastic summer days and nights. 
 

Moisturizing:   Lighten-up on your moisturizer 

We already know that moisturizing is essential for acne prone skin. In the summer, since you will wash your skin even more often to get rid of sweat and outdoor dirt, moisturizing is very important to prevent dry and sensitive skin. But, make sure that you lighten up on the moisturizer of choice. Chose lotion rather than cream (this applies to both the face and body), and READ the labels to choose non-comedogenic and oil-free products.

Skin Spring Cleaning: 5 Steps to Eliminating Acne this Spring

Skin Spring Cleaning: 5 Steps to Eliminating Acne this Spring

During the winter, our skin gets dryer - and dry skin is not healthy skin. A normal response to help dry skin symptoms is to use products that contain oils.  Doing this may produce a serious problem for acne prone skin - clogged pores and an entire inflammatory cycle of "producing" the pimples or cysts.

Over-dry skin may also be a manifestation of invisible inflammation in deeper layers of the skin. So, instead of one problem you may actually have two if you allow your skin to get too dry due to environmental factors like wind, cold, indoor heating, hot showers etc. or because of prolonged use of certain ingredients in your skincare products such as salicylic acid or alcohol.

PLEASE NOTE: Contrary to popular belief, over-drying oily skin to deal with acne is not an efficient way to treat acne.

Are Exfoliations & Chemical Peels Good for Acne-Prone Skin?

Are Exfoliations & Chemical Peels Good for Acne-Prone Skin?

Skin Exfoliations and Chemical Peels became very popular with Glycolic Acid (and less Salicylic Acid) becoming the toast of the town.

There is reason to believe that for most skin types, with the exception of dry and sensitive skin, some level of exfoliation may be beneficial. It can help to remove dead skin cells, helping to unclog pores, remove dry, dark, and flaky skin resulting from photo-aging, and stimulate collagen production to help skin regeneration.  

As with many things that are "in" at the time, we seem to go overboard. Too frequent and strong chemical peels may lead to sensitized, irritated and over-dry skin. And too vigorous and frequent abrasive exfoliation can lead to skin inflammation. The COST of the procedures can take a toll on you too!
