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.
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.
When skin health, acne and
other skin problems are talked about, the focus is on good ingredients
and regimens. It is equally important to know what is not good for your
skin too. After all, skin is the largest organ, and a very important
one. Some of these harmful ingredients used in topical products may actually get inside of your body.This is especially important to know if you use certain products for an extended period of time.
If you already have skin problems, especiallyacne, these ingredients will further affect your skin health, making treating acne more difficult.
Exfoliations and Chemical Peels became very popular with Glycolic Acid
(and less Salicylic Acid) becoming the toast of the town.
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!
