Acne Vulgaris is a disease of the skin that involves the hair and oil glands. It is characterized by pimples, black/white heads, reddishness and cysts.
Face acne can spoil your appearance to a great extent and body acne can really ruin your day by making you very uncomfortable. Considering acne as a minor problem, some people tend to totally discard the topic of acne skin care. However, the importance of this cannot be undermined in any way especially in the treatment of severe Acne Vulgaris.
Acne treatments like this are more about being proactive than reactive and should really start long before the acne actually appears. So let’s take a look now at how acne skin care can be applied to our daily routine.
Acne skin care starts with the most basic thing – cleanliness…so morning showers are the most basic way of keeping your skin clean. If you are living in a hot and/or humid place, a night shower becomes a must. In fact, a shower is recommended after any activity that causes high levels of sweat to develop. It’s a very effective treatment technique.
Besides that, you should also use a mild, water-soluble, oil-free and soap-free cleanser for keeping your face, neck and arms clean. Cleansing is the most important part of any acne vulgaris routine. Cleaners are the easiest and the most effective way of removing dirt, grease, pollutants and excess oil from your skin; thus reducing the probability of the occurrence of blemishes. There are various creams and lotions available over-the-counter. If you are looking for a physician grade acne skin care line, we offer PCA Skin Care Products. We feel they have the best acne treatment products.
It is also recommended to remove your make up using a make up remover, and this should happen before you go to bed (not in the morning). In the same sense, if you are a woman, it is also recommended that you clean your make-up brush and any equipment that you use on your body.
Acne skincare is also about wearing clean clothes and sleeping on clean pillows. Moreover, too tight clothes can cause sweat to accumulate quickly; so soft and comfortable cotton clothes are recommended, especially if you already have acne. In the same sense, it is also advisable to regularly clean your make-up brush and any equipment that you use on your body.
If you already have acne, do not try to touch them or squeeze them; it can lead to permanent scars. If you suffer from acne scars, we offer several treatment options including acne scar removal with Microdermabrasion and Acne Laser Treatment.
