Acne is an inflammatory skin disease. It is not a normal part of being a teenager, although it is very common in teenagers. Severe acne can seriously affect the way we feel about ourselves at a time when we’re already feeling unsure of the changes puberty brings. If you are concerned about your acne, consult a qualified health professional to discuss your treatment options.
Many people with acne think they can’t wear sunscreen because it is too thick and greasy. Sunscreen is an essential part of your daily routine if you have acne or blemish-prone skin because UV radiation is more harmful to inflamed skin. Sun exposure can cause inflamed spots to turn dark brown. Although some people with acne notice a small improvement in their acne during summer, the benefits of extra exposure to sunlight are - at best - small, while the risks are large. Knock-Out provides good broad-spectrum sunscreen for daily use and dries matte, without ever feeling heavy or greasy.
Trying to self-treat acne with over-the-counter products containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid can actually worsen acne. At first, you’ll notice the acne clearing up and the skin becoming drier, but as you continue to use these products, the active ingredients cause significant irritation and even more acne. We use organic tea tree as a natural alternative to benzoyl peroxide. In a recent study, acne sufferers were divided into two groups. One group applied a benzoyl peroxide solution daily and the other applied tea tree oil. It was found that both ingredients helped reduce acne. The tea tree oil worked more slowly than benzoyl peroxide but those that used tea tree oil suffered far fewer side effects.
Eating chocolate does not cause acne! However a diet full of junk food will not support optimal skin health, so eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and drink water instead of fizzy drinks.
Less is best when it comes to acne or blemish-prone skin. A simple skin care regime that supports acne-prone skin includes twice daily cleansing with Light Milk Cleanser, daily hydration and sun protection with Knock-Out and repair at night with Rhino Repair or Beauty Sleep.
If you have been prescribed a topical cream or gel for your acne, apply this as recommended after cleansing. Then apply Knock-Out for your daily hydration and sun protection.
Do not ever squeeze pimples. This will cause scarring that is very difficult to treat.
