Healing Acne Effectively and Stress-Free
A blemish-ridden teenaged face is never a pretty sight, but all of us at one point or another faced a problem such as acne. Acne vulgaris, the most common variety, can inhabit not just your face, but also your upper arms and back, and is a rather stubborn company to get rid of. This does not mean, however, that you have to live with acne and let it flourish all over your forehead or chin. There are ways to heal existing acne and mask it as with a anti aging facial and also prevent new breakouts without investing all of your time and money into treatments. Many people invest in other areas of their body to compensate such as with hair salons in Austin TX that also can help your acne treatment. Since acne attributes, such as sweat, dirt, oils and bacteria will most likely not disappear from your life anytime soon, you need to learn effective methods of dealing with all of the above instead of stressing out over your acne.
The most important thing to remember is that healthy skin starts with clean skin and a good hairstylist Austin understands this. Washing your face with gentle soap twice a day is essential; it will help it rid of dirt and excess oil that accumulates throughout the day, clean out pore clogs and refresh itself. Also remember that dirty hands have no place on your face. Some people have found that Austin tanning salons can help with keeping your skin less oily and thus reduce acne. Just be careful that if you have a Austin Brazilian wax that you keep your waxed area moisturized. We touch various areas of our faces countless times a day without realizing that our hands are actually responsible for all the acne we end up having! Do not touch your face, and if you cannot forgo the habit, keep a hand sanitizer next to you at all times and rub your hands with it as often as possible.
While the above two tips work for both acne prevention and minimizing the existing acne, one cannot disregard the power of certain medications when it comes to acne treatment. Before you consider medication you might want to consider regular microdermabrasion treatment and see what kind of results you get. The two formulas, widely available either by prescription or in over the counter products, are benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria that causes pore blockage, thus clearing out the break outs. It usually comes in a cream or gel form. Salicylic acid causes your skin to shed its outmost layer and helps it keep the pores clean. Many salons that sell premium hair products are familiar with some of these treatment options. It should not be applied to an open blemish, or an area with cuts or sores, as it may cause inflammation. Both of these ingredients provide rather good results when used regularly, but if they failed to help with your specific case of acne, you may want to see a doctor for antibiotics that destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation. Tetracycline is the most common antibiotic prescribed to treat acne.
If your acne is so severe than none of the store-bought topical treatments or antibiotics help, you may want to consider light therapy or microdermabrasion procedures for your face, both of which are offered at José Luis Salon. Light therapy uses strong diodes to treat different areas of your face and during microdermabrasion your face is overrun with tiny particles of aluminum oxide, and a small device lifts up the particle from your skin. The treatments are short and painless and may be considered when having bridal makeup done before your big day.
If you are suffering from any form of acne, feel free to contact José Luis Salon and consult our experienced staff regarding what acne treatment is best for you. You may also consider getting makeup lessons from a Austin makeup artist to help mask breakouts. Relax and let our trained professionals send your acne packing and bring back the beautiful, natural glow of healthy skin.
