Acne is very common, even as adults
Even if you have had clear skin for years. Acne can always come back. Here are a few ways to combat (and beat) acne.
1. TREAT IT NATURALLY ON THE INSIDE
It’s always a good idea to start by treating the issue naturally from the inside. Diet can make a difference. The goal is to minimize sugar, processed foods and eat plenty of colorful veggies. The right diet will help eliminate inflammation of the skin from the inside. Also consider trying a dose of Vitamin D… People with acne are typically deficient in Vitamin D. You can take a supplement, but a little bit of sunshine each day is even better (as long as you use an SPF).
2. TREAT IT NATURALLY OUTSIDE
Your blemishes don’t stand a chance when using natural products such as tea tree oil, eucalyptus, mistletoe and clary sage. Full of purifying, and antibacterial properties, these products are focused on cleaning, moisturizing and preventing breakouts.
3. HIDDEN DIRT ON YOUR FACE
Some acne is caused by clogged pores…so in this case washing your face is not enough. Clogged pores cause blackheads and whiteheads, but fortunately with a good cleanser and exfoliant will help. There’s also an underlying cause you probably haven’t considered. Your pillowcase! Every night you put your face down on a pillow that absorbs dirt, oils, dead skin cells…yuck! Consider having extra sets of sheets and change your pillowcases twice a week.
4. ROUTINE PROFESSIONAL FACIALS
Having a profession facial on a regular basis would be really beneficial. Professional facials can offer extractions, an enzyme or a glycolic peel to slough off dead skin cells to prevent pores from becoming clogged, as well a treatment mask to target and treat. After receiving a facial here at Salus, your professional esthetician will help you learn more about your skin care needs and will recommend the right products for you to use at home.
