Adult acne-prone

Adult acne-prone

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.

For many people, acne scarring can have devastating emotional effects. Many teenagers with acne scars become depressed and withdrawn or have low self-confidence. Acne scarring has been cited as a risk factor for male teen suicide, in fact. Of course, the effects are not as dramatic in adults, but many adults admit to becoming less confident due to acne scarring. Many people prefer not to socialize, or choose to wear a full face of makeup (including for the mail run). These may be an option at times, but not for the long term.

For people whose busy schedules have almost made them lose hope in having good skin again, we have taken the time to curate a simple 7-minute skincare routine. This routine takes account of the basic steps to balance your acne-prone skin and erase acne marks: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Treat, Moisturize and Protect.

Cleanse: to remove oil and debris accumulated on your skin, wash your face in the morning and right before bed. Use lukewarm water with a gentle cleanser that delivers moisture to your face as you cleanse. Wash gently, using only your hands or soft cotton pads. Loofahs or other scrubbing materials may rupture acne sores and cause more scarring. Aim to wash for about 20 or 30 seconds, any more than that may do more harm than good. After washing, dab your face with a clean towel but don’t rub. NEVER go to bed with make-up on.

Exfoliate: exfoliate regularly (one to three times a week) to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. It helps your skin refresh itself, brightens it and visibly improves clarity. Reach for an exfoliator that gives a radiant glow and a noticeably smoother appearance, without breakting the skin barrier.

Treat: with the Rejuvel 3D, a botanical scar serum guaranteed to get rid of acne scars and marks. Not only does it speed up collagen production, it also moisturizes the skin and instantly makes it smoother on the first application. It has anti-aging benefits, which all ages, genders, skin types and shades can gain from. As a clinically and scientifically-tested product, it is very safe for your skin, with no side effects.

Moisturize: Use only light moisturizers which will not clog your pores and worsen acne. We recommend AcnEase’s Intense Repair cream. This unique blend of skin-loving vitamins, acids and collagen instantly softens, hydrates, and soothes your acne-prone skin. Over time, it repairs acne scars and marks and restores your skin. It can also be used as an eye cream. It dries matte and smooth, but without drying out your skin or leaving chalky residue.

Protect: exposing active breakouts to the sun can darken the irritated skin, making it more difficult for scars to fade. So, whether it is rainy, cloudy or sunny, or whether you are indoors or outdoors or spending only a little time in the sun, always protect your skin. Use a zinc-based sunscreen suitable for your skin type, and reapply every 3-4 hours.

Makeup: Use a light, fragrance, paraben and oil-free foundation. Heavy makeup or other cosmetic products that clog pores may cause acne to flare back up. For women over 25 who want to get natural-looking skin, we recommend Acnease’s face therapy foundation. It is light and very hydrating, blends effortlessly and then dries into a smooth matte finish. Its color-correcting pigments ensure that it balances skin tone, hides scars and reduces discoloration and redness. It is also enriched with hyaluronic acid, collagen and peptides to nourish and restore injured skin.

Most doctors advise people who suffer from acne to seek treatment as soon as possible; it is much easier to prevent acne scars from developing than to find a successful treatment for them. Ideally, if your acne is treated early enough, there should be little or no physical scarring.

Overall, prevention, they say, is better than cure. You can minimize your chances of developing post-acne marks by preventing acne from showing up. With acne, as with many other skin issues, the permanent solution will not be found in a lotion or potion, but in our body. Acne itself is a symptom of a hormonal imbalance. When the body becomes deficient in thyroid, it secretes male or androgenic hormones, which makes the sebaceous glands overproduce sebum. This extra sebum, when combined with dirt, creates the ideal condition for bacteria to thrive. These then cause inflammation like pimples and cysts, etc.

So, the first thing you can do to prevent acne is to balance your hormones by inducing your body to secrete more thyroid. Cleaning up your diet will go a long way in helping you achieve this. Choose to eat more leafy greens, whole grains, nuts and seeds, fruits and omega 3s. Also, eat less sugary, spicy and greasy foods. You can also add thyroid supplements like Synthroid (Levothyroxine Sodium) to your diet.

Another thing is regular exercise. Exercise has been proven to boost thyroid function. Also, regular physical activity boosts blood circulation, which helps draw toxins out of the skin. When you sweat and wash your body after exercise, the oils and dirt that would ordinarily cause acne are evacuated. Aim for 30 minutes of high intensity exercise daily.

Also, stop picking! We know it can be very tempting to want to get rid of a pimple by picking at it. We also know it never works. All you actually do is give entrance to bacteria which will then create a scar or blackhead. The best thing you can do at that point to prevent scarring is to leave the pimple alone. So, whenever the urge to commit this skincare evil comes, distract yourself. Keep your hands busy by texting your husband loving messages. It works, trust us!

Avoid anything you’re allergic to. Allergies (especially food allergies) create imbalance in the body, which may then trigger acne or intensify it. Study your body, find out what you are allergic to, and avoid it.

Properly rinse out shampoo and conditioner. Did you know that those sweet fragrances from washing your hair can aggravate the skin? Build-up from shampoo or conditioner can also clog pores! Try using products with natural ingredients such as tea tree or peppermint.

Use botanical cosmetics, hair care and skin care products. A lot of generic body care brands use ingredients which directly or indirectly cause hormonal imbalance. Avoid them and opt for plant-based alternatives like the AcnEase brand.

AcnEase is a high-quality blend of botanical ingredients that works from the inside to return your sebaceous glands to their normal performance.
