Five Tips for Preventing Acne
Acne can be an unpleasant visitor, even after your teenage years are through. Some causes of acne are bacteria and clogged pores. Breakouts can be prevented by following these general rules.
Use Physician Recommended Cleaning Products
To prevent acne breakouts, you need a consistent and quality skincare ritual. The skincare experts at AlluraDerm MD Med Spa can help you find out what physician-strength products you can use at home to help clear up and maintain your skin. A successful acne skincare regimen includes:
· A purifying and effective facial cleanser
· A refreshing toner to match your skin type
· Spot treatment
AlluraDerm recommends SkinMedica’s Acne System. SkinMedica’s Acne System uses therapeutic antiseptics to destroy acne bacteria and reduce breakouts. It prevents pores from clogging, reduced bacteria and absorbs sebum from your skin’s surface
Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Applying make-up every day is expected, but that dirty brush could be spreading bacteria on your face. Women should make habit of cleaning make-up brushes once a month with gentle soap and water. To prevent damage to brush adhesive or handles, be sure to stand your brushes up to dry!
Exfoliate Your Face
Exfoliation should be a weekly maintenance ritual, where you can wash away dead skin and give your pores a deep clean. Exfoliation invigorates and allows acne-prone skin to breathe. Because our skin repairs itself overnight, you can scrub away dead skin cells in the morning!
Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels
Regular treatments like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermaplaning can significantly reduce the likelihood of a breakout and even improve the appearance of acne scars. Chemical peels and exfoliating treatments from AlluraDerm give you the deepest clean by gently removing the outer layer dead skin cells that contribute to acne breakouts.
Choose Mineral Make-up Products
To avoid pore congestion, we recommend make-up that is derived from minerals, such as glō minerals, available at AlluraDerm. This is because many over-the-counter make-up products contain talc, an irritating filler product that contributes to acne breakouts. Unlike products with talc, mineral products allow your skin to breathe.
Whether or not your acne is severe, it is important to maintain a daily skincare routine along with these tips. Twice a day cleansing removes impurities, washes away oil, and improves the overall tone of your skin.
