How to prevent acne: 4 steps to banish those blemishes!

Acne – it happens to the best of us, at the most unexpected times. But did you know with consistent maintenance of your skin through healthy lifestyle habits and effective skin treatments reduces your chances of experiencing acne? Let’s find out how!

  1. Cleanse

Tired from a night out or gym session and just want to sleep? Roll straight into bed and you’ll be taking a one-way ticket to the high chance of acne formation. Forecast? Cloudy with a chance of breakouts.

Whether it’s sweat or makeup, the buildup of oil, skin debris and pollutants are some of the main causes of common acne. Common acne presents itself in the form of whiteheads and blackheads where dead skin cells, oil and/or bacteria is trapped in your pores.

Cleansing your skin in the morning and night clears your skin from the amount of oil, dead skin cells and pollutants that have accumulated through the day.

Did you know that the oils in your hair could be contributing to your breakouts? Ensuring that you wash your hair regularly, especially after a hot Summer’s day or a sweaty workout will reduce your chances of acne forming on your face.

  1. Exfoliate

Exfoliate regularly but not excessively. Regular exfoliation clears the skin of any buildup as well as promotes healthier circulation, blessing you with a glowing complexion. On the other hand, excessive exfoliation triggers the skin’s oil production levels to increase to over compensate for the lack of moisture and oil in the skin.

Finding the right exfoliant can be tough in today’s skincare market saturated with complex names and glossy ads. Finding the perfect remedy to acne shouldn’t be this hard!

To discover which treatment will best suit your skin and needs, feel free to book in a complimentary consultation with one of our skin therapists.

To target active acne, chemical peels such as the Acne Beta Peel can be used. They use a specific combination of Salicylic and Dioic Acid to target acne causing bacteria and decongest the skin. Combined with the healing properties of LED Light Therapy, the skin is cleared of acne bacteria, leaving you with clearer and healthier skin!

Protection against the sun is important, regardless of whether you’ve undergone a skin treatment or not. The sun’s damaging rays dry out the skin as well as increases your chance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
