Abolish Acne Acne Solutions

Teenagers are not the only ones who suffer from blemishes - acne can also affect adults, especially women. Here are some tips to help treat your acne.


What is acne?
Pimples and blackheads appear when the sebaceous glands malfunction and secret excess sebum. Sometimes sebum can accumulate and cause blackheads and pimples on the surface of the skin.

The right steps

Take care
Take care of your skin by using the right non-comedogenic products.
Cliniderm Gentle Cleanser
Cleanse
Wash your face in the morning and at night with a gentle purifying cleansing gel to keep your skin moisturized. If your skin dries up, it will most likely produce more sebum to defend itself and your acne might worsen. No need to sandblast your skin or scrub excessively - wash your face gently.
Skin TX Gentle Cleanser
Hydrate
Moisturize your skin in the morning and at night with a moisturizer and mattifying product, which will prevent your skin from glowing and your pores from becoming obstructed.
Neostrata Oil Free Gel Cleanser
Exfoliate
Exfoliate once or twice a week, at most! The scrub will eliminate dead cells and prevent blemishes and blackheads from appearing.
Nuxe Paris Gentle Exfoliating Gel
purify
Purify your skin once a week with a clay mask.
Consonant Masque
Treat
Treat your skin with products containing fruit acids, such as glycolic acid, which gently exfoliate while directly targeting blackheads, microcysts, and dilated pores. In the case of inflammatory acne (presence of red spots), it’s best to try using products that contain benzoyl peroxide and to seek the advice of a dermatologist for additional guidance.
Neostrata toning Solution Level 1
protect
Protect your skin from the sun with a high SPF (30 or 50+). If at first the sun’s rays seem to lessen your acne, it will have a negative effect on your skin after a few days of exposure.
Coola face SPF 30
use makeup
Use oil-free and non-comedogenic makeup products. A mattifying foundation or powder is ideal because it will prevent your skin from glowing and will help your makeup last longer.
Stila Stay all Day Foundation
Avoid
Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands or touching your blemishes as this could spread bacteria and cause more acne to appear.
