Those Darn Acne Flare-Ups!
- Posted on: Oct 15 2016
Again. And Again. There you are. Dealing with an acne flare-up. It seems no matter how much water you drink, how healthy you eat or how often you wash your face, your acne returns, sometimes with a vengeance and usually when least desired. You aren’t alone.
People of every age and time of life are concerned about the appearance of their skin because of recurring acne flare-ups. It’s a common concern. Allure Skin & Laser can help; first you should know about a few probable causes of acne:
- Blocked Pores. Your body is full of pores, and they play an integral part in your body’s overall health. Their purpose is to move waste products such as sweat from your body to help it maintain a healthy equilibrium. But your pores can easily become obstructed, and when that happens, acne can be a result. One of the surest ways to combat this acne trigger is to keep your face clean with a morning and night skin care routine – wash your face and never, ever go to bed with your make-up on!
- Bacterial Growth. Acne loves and feeds on germs and bacteria. So, don’t touch your face and don’t pick at your skin. Your daily face-touching rituals when relaxing at home, at work or when you sleep can add unwanted, unhealthy bacteria to your facial skin – making existing acne worse and resistant to treatment.
- Excessive Oil. Your skin needs oil to stay moist, bright and youthful. But when your skin produces too much oil, your risk of acne is increased. With hormonal changes comes excessive oil production. That’s why so many teens going through puberty suffer from acne. Many adults must also deal with hormonal imbalances and may find they need treatment for adult acne as they age.
So, what’s the take-away? We offer skin resurfacing treatments, the deep-cleaning Hydra Facial, chemical peels, laser rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion to help address the causes of acne and it’s scars. There is no need to suffer the embarrassment of acne – remember, the holidays are soon upon us. Call to schedule an appointment, today: (630) 818-7546.
