Adult Acne- Understanding causes, treatment options and Care routine
Hi Everyone, Liz here (+1 662 830 8246, firstname.lastname@example.org)
I grew up, I thought my skin would too. It didn’t. I never thought that I would have to take the pain of this journey again, yet here I am reflecting, contemplating, considering and evaluating the condition, of my skin and how I should treat it. It, being acne!
It is estimated that the amount of people who suffer from adult acne has doubled in recent years. There is no single cause and most dermatologists are unsure as to why. A big contributing factor is the surge of the hormones in puberty. However environmental factors such as pollution, stress, medication and genetics are also to blame. The one thing that isn’t is unclean skin. Good skin routines will dictate cleansing skin regularly, this trains the skin to behave in a certain way, however if this doesn’t happen, the human skin has the ability to cleanse itself. But lets not leave it to nature when we can actively do something.
There are several features of acne that most people suffer from, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, often a combination of them. The more extreme form of this is where painful cysts develop deep in the skin and contain inflammatory cells. These can result in scarring and the duration can be long and painful. Prescription grade medication is used for treatment of this intensity of acne. Salicylic acid is a popular active ingredient in acne targeted skincare which helps reduce blemishes.
Making a commitment to a skin routine will be fundamental to your control over it. By cleansing twice daily, you are able to remove any build up that takes place over the day. After each cleanse a serum with an active ingredient should be used, this is the best time to apply it as the pores will have opened during cleansing to allow the serum to penetrate. Avoid a foam or oil based cleanser as this will irritate the acne. Naked Actives Hydrating Cleanser is strong enough to slough away the dead skin cells but gentle so as not to disturb the skin pH. Follow with Naked Actives Vitamin B3 & Niacinamide Serum, which minimises inflammation and redness, while reducing moisture loss and restoring collagen. Contrary to belief always apply a moisturiser, even if your skin is on the oily side.
Hand in hand with acne is scarring, which can manifest itself in the skins texture and resulting in discoloured pigmentation. Actives such as niacinamide are very good to help these kind of marks fade, however to get rid of it altogether, manipulating your collagen levels or using chemical peels is the only way to remove scarring A revolutionary product that I have found very helpful in this scenario, is the Naked Actives EGF Skin Renewal Serum, clinically proven to combat/prevent skin aging, improve elasticity and repair acne scars.
