There are many different types of acne. It can be hormonal, stress related, teenage related, bacterial, fungal, or drug or chemical induced. Acne is a two-fold skin problem, there are the pimples with blackheads and then there is the scarring acne can leave behind. No matter what the cause, it can really traumatize people. Making them feel self conscious because of the unsightly, red, irritated bumps and then the scars.
I say, first rule out the reason. Why are you breaking out? Are there lifestyle choices and eating habits that are contributing? There are many things people attempt to do to minimize acne that unknowingly can be more harmful than helpful. Some people try to camouflage acne with makeup and concealers. This is actually counterproductive, it makes acne worse by clogging pores with talc based products which will irritate the skin more. Some people also pick at the acne. This can make the scars much deeper and harder to treat. Others start putting oils on the skin because of the dryness they experience with acne. That doesn’t help either. It actually makes the problem worse, because acne bacteria grows in an anaerobic environment and starts growing faster under these circumstances. Talking with a professional aesthetic specialist can help you figure out why you are breaking out and deciding which treatment will work best for your skin.
Next step is to devise a treatment plan. Will you need medication or topical treatments? Do you need better home care to support after treatments? All of this can be easily figured out in a thorough and complete consultation.
So, if you are confused about what to do about your acne and how to fix it? Don’t wait. Ask your doctor or aesthetic acne specialist for help and you won’t feel self conscious anymore. It’s that simple.
