Many women with acne-prone skin struggle to find the perfect skin regime and skin care products for their skin. Finding the perfect skin care product needs trial and error. We just can’t afford to use the wrong products for our skin!
Women with acne-prone skin must know what types of acne that their skin is likely to produce, in order to avoid or treat them. Among the type of acne are blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, nodules, papules or pustules. Each type of acne can be avoided or treated with a thorough skin care regimen. Apart from a strict skin regimen, one can also go to aesthetic centres for specialised treatments.
Holy Grail for the skin
Getting the perfect skin care product is about choosing one that is right for your skin type. Having the right product does wonders on people with acne-prone skin.
1.Find a cleanser that suits your skin.
Do your research. Take note of the ingredients in your skincare products and mark down which one causes break outs. Purchase and use a cleanser for at least two weeks to see the difference and decide whether it works. Repeat this if the one you tried isn’t working. It is okay, beauty takes time. Look for cleansers with natural active ingredients, such as those recommended by our Beauty Professionals.
2.Suitable moisturiser for acne-prone skin.
Dry skin that lacks moisture can produce an excessive amount of sebum, which then leads to the production of acne. Moisturisers can be in gel or cream form. Find one that provides you with the right amount of moisture that your skin needs. Moisturisers that smell good can be therapeutic, but it is better to avoid one with fragrance as it could irritate the skin. Get a moisturiser such as Physiodermie Oily Skin Emulsion, which is designed with seboregulating complex to help tighten pores and reduce excess sebum production.
3.Solve the inflammation.
The major problem for people with acne-prone skin is skin redness due to inflammation of the acne. Salicylic acid may soothe the inflamed area. However, the application of sunscreen can also help reduce inflammation. Topical ointments could also work wonders with the right amount of benzoyl peroxide, retinoids (such as adapalene) or salicylic acid.
4.Balance the skin pH.
Unbalanced skin pH can damage the skin barrier. Weak or damaged skin barriers are more likely to be exposed to irritants which can cause acne-prone skin. With a stronger skin barrier, the skin can retain water more effectively thus maintain a good hydration balance. While a moisturiser can provide the hydration you need, Physiodermie Stabilizing Lotion PH Balancing to help soothe sensitive skin and bring the skin to the perfect 5.5 pH level.
Patience is the key, but some prefer a quick and visible result. While practising the “perfect” skin care regimen religiously can be worth the patience, it is actually an investment to some.
