Lots of people feel really down because they don’t seem to get in control of their skin condition. It’s common to hear the phrase: ‘I’ve tried it all’. Now there could be lots of explanations for why you have not eliminated acne for good until now, but you should first make an appointment with a dermatologist. Only a specialist can diagnose and come up with a treatment plan for acne. The sooner you take action, the better, because trying to get acne free with a treatment by the ear, may not get you too far.
Cosmetic skincare products are not the right solution against acne. Many of them are too oily to do good to your skin, or they could contain alcohol, which has an irritant action on the skin. Even the soap you wash your face with could aggravate the acne. Most soaps dry the skin, forcing it to produce more oils to compensate. When you already have an oily complexion, an increased sebum secretion is like gas for fire. The oilier the skin, the more efficiently bacteria can proliferate in the clogged pores. Change skincare products to become acne free.
Focus on pharmacological formulas that in addition to herbal blends also contain anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agents. Acne is often triggered by specific bacteria, and you need to fight against these germs to get clear skin. In very severe acne cases, doctors prescribe oral and topical antibiotics to put a stop to the breakouts and give the lesions time to heal. No matter how badly you want to become acne free, don’t give in to the temptation of popping the pimples. It might feel comforting and like the right way to smooth the skin, but squeezing the tissues only pushes the bacteria deeper in the dermis, spreading the infection further on.
Thus, from a moderate acne form you can turn it into a severe one. Specialists point out that it’s very important to target the cause of acne first and foremost, in order to defeat it. If there is an internal imbalance in the system, or your immune function is low, you’d have to straighten a thing or two before the skin health improves. Sometimes a general body cleansing is necessary to eliminate the toxins from the system and relieve the skin of toxic residues.
