In this article, we give you 6 (six) practical tips for reducing the frequency and intensity of rashes associated with acne and we also present recommended treatments to help you say a final goodbye to pimples, acne, and breakouts!

What causes acne?

There are several possible causes for the development of an acne problem in a person and sometimes it is a combination of several of these factors that causes the pimples to appear. For example, the problem may be related to a hormonal imbalance or fluctuation, as is often the case during puberty or during pregnancy. The problem can also be caused by an overproduction of sebum; by a thickening of the skin which then prevents the effective flow of sebum through the pores. Or by the presence of the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes in the skin which causes the appearance of blackheads or breakouts. Thankfully, there are plenty of simple solutions and tips for effectively treating acne and regaining healthy-looking skin.

HERE ARE THE TIPS

Avoid Constantly Touching Your Skin

We can never say it enough: By avoiding touching your face, you avoid the proliferation of bacteria on your skin which can be the cause of your acne problem. Think about it… We touch a lot of things in the course of a day and even if we wash our hands as often as possible, they are not always clean. The skin of the face, which is much thinner and more sensitive than that of the rest of the body, therefore reacts more easily to the presence of bacteria, which results in the appearance of pimples in some people. By avoiding unnecessary touching of the skin on your face, more specifically by avoiding touching your pimples, you ensure that it is kept clean and you allow it to heal effectively.

Don't Pop Her Pimples

As we know, it is tempting to pop your pimples and comedones (blackheads) yourself! However, most of the time, this only makes the situation worse and may even scar the skin permanently. Indeed, if the extraction is part of the professional care offered in an aesthetic clinic, it is because it is important to use an adequate technique that will allow obtaining good results without injuring the skin. This could imply that the skin has been adequately prepared before the extraction and that the specialist performing the treatment has the knowledge required to do so safely.

Have you ever tried to pop a pimple only to end up with a much worse result than when you started, that is, with a significant red mark on your forehead or chin? If so, you understand why it is advisable to consult a skin professional who can perform the extraction properly and who will be able to judge the pimples and comedones to be treated. It is, in fact, recommended that you do not carry out a large extraction or indulge in it too frequently. And if you must, it is better to consult a specialist that will offer professional skin care that will be fully adapted to your skin.

Do Not Attack Your Skin

When you suffer from acne, there’s often the tendency that you may want to cleanse your skin vigorously or to want to exfoliate it frequently in order to eliminate pimples by "sanding" them. But this is to be absolutely avoided! Contrary to what one might think, acne-prone skin is very sensitive in addition to showing inflammation. So it needs to be treated gently and soothed as much as possible in order to be able to heal properly.

By not gently treating acne-prone skin and using products that are too abrasive or that do not respect its natural pH, we only irritate it more, which will have the effect of worsening redness and inflammation. In addition, when the skin's natural protective barrier is damaged, it becomes enormously more reactive to the presence of bacteria and tries to protect itself by producing more sebum, two factors which, as you may know, are responsible for the appearance of acne.

The Photorejuvenation Cure

A real favorite treatment for peachy skin and an uneven complexion, photorejuvenation can treat acne scars through a course of 3 to 6 treatments. Plus, it evens out skin tone and tightens pores, all for overall healthier-looking skin. Photorejuvenation also treats rosacea (a chronic inflammatory skin disorder), a skin condition that can often accompany acne. Photorejuvenation helps to remove pigment spots, which come in very handy once the acne problem has cleared up.

Appropriate Facial Care

Again, depending on the type of acne you have and the causes of it, different facials may be advised by your skin care professional. For example, a peel accompanied by extraction (by a qualified technician) may be recommended to decongest the skin and promote the effective flow of sebum through the pores, thus preventing the appearance of pimples. Microdermabrasion by dermal infusion with clarifying solution by a certified professional is also a very popular solution for the treatment of acne.

In addition, once the acne problem has been eliminated, various treatments such as diamond-tipped microdermabrasion can be recommended to eliminate acne scars if there are any and to even out the complexion.

Finally,

Proper Beauty Routine

Only use trusted skin care products that are adapted to the skin condition to be treated. In this case, non-acne-inducing/acne-treating products should always be an integral part of the treatment plan developed. Indeed, depending on the type of acne you suffer from and the causes associated with it, different products may be suggested to you by your skin specialist. You can never go wrong with the Belle Crux set for oily skins which aims to effectively treat acne while fighting the signs of aging. A two-in-one that makes many customers happy!

Moreover, one element that should never be forgotten in a beauty routine for acne-prone skin is hydration, even for oily skin! 

Indeed, all skin types can lack water and by properly moisturizing your skin on a daily basis, you will soothe it as much as possible in order to reduce inflammation and allow it to heal properly!
