Acne is a constant reminder of what we’re doing wrong with our diets, stress and skin maintenance. Do you feel like you’re constantly in combat with acne that just won’t quit? When one eruption (finally) fades away, another starts up again, and you dare not touch it, because the bacteria spreads and so does the outbreak.
Listen up: You don’t have to suffer with acne. You don’t have to feel embarrassed, or blame yourself. You can look the world squarely in the eye and smile with confidence. Acne can be beaten with the right techniques, different weapons, and perhaps some expert training. Let me explain:
Beat Acne With Different Weapons
From a young age, we are taught to work hard, play hard and fight hard for what we want in life. But when it comes to acne, it’s best to be gentle on your skin. You cannot scrub away pimples, because they are a symptom, not a cause and overzealousness will actually irritate the sensitive skin more.
Additionally, there are more efficient ways to treat acne. A series of laser treatments can reduce the occurrence of pimples for months at a time.
Nutrition is as important for your skin, as it is for your body. That was actually the philosophy behind developing the technologically advanced, high-performance Bradford Skin Clinic mineral-rich product range. By feeding your skin, you will see it repaired, hydrated, tightened and illuminated.
Tip: It’s best to avoid rough scrubbing pads and harsh cleansers and exfoliators. Instead, use soft cleansing brushes and gentle exfoliating cleanser once or twice a week. It should not form part of your daily cleansing routine.
Beat Acne With New Techniques
When it comes to skincare to combat acne, less is more. Most acne sufferers make the mistake of slathering on huge amounts of products, or they use much less than they really should. Using too little will not give the best result, while using too much will disturb the skin’s natural balance. It is important to follow the instructions on the containers to ensure best results.
Tip: Don’t try several products simultaneously, because you will not get an accurate idea of how each product works individually. Remember, your skin will take a couple of days to a couple of weeks to adjust to a product, so give it sufficient time before introducing another product.
Beat Acne With Expert Training
Many different things can cause acne and just because something works for friends, or even family, does not mean it will work for you. Skin type, age and a range of other factors are at play when it comes to assessing the cause of your adult acne.
While over-the-counter treatments may help somewhat with adolescent acne, it can actually worsen adult acne. Both types of acne (and the pigmentation that results) can be professionally treated with the right products and prescription creams, laser, light and heat therapy and even acne scar treatment.
Tip: Proper assessment of the cause of your acne, can help you find the best product solutions and techniques that will help reduce the occurrence and severity of acne.
Come on in and let’s take a look at how Bradford Skin Clinic can give you a more effective, long-lasting solution to your acne problem.
