Acne Dos and Don’ts

Acne is a truly annoying thing. What most people don’t know is that they often make it worse for themselves. They do things they shouldn’t do, and don’t do the things they should do. Acne can be a lot easier to manage if you just follow some basic dos and don’ts.

 

Do:

1.    Make sure that your skin is properly cleaned.

This is so basic, but most people get lazy or don’t keep it up. Skin cleansing is pretty simple, using just basic skin care products. Even warm water will do a good job of helping the skin freshen up and unclogging pores.

Niacin (Vitamin B3)

I’ve tried a lot of acne products including the natural supplements. Recently I heard about Niacin and have been taking it as a daily supplement for my skin. Niacin is also known as vitamin B3 and is considered to be an essential human nutrient. I did a bit of research on the internet and while there aren’t any conclusive studies on acne and Niacin, it does seem that Niacin levels are important for skin health.

I’ve been taking the recommended dosage for my age group. You can find Niacin in food sources such as beets, beef liver and kidney, fish, and beets but the only way to be sure of your intake levels to through supplements.

Clear Skin Max

I have frequent breakouts and I’ve been using Clear Skin Max for about a month.

I use the Acne Vanisher Mask about twice a week, sometimes three times, after cleaning with the Tea Tree Oil Cleansing Gel. The mask stings only if you have broken skin. I didn’t mind the mask – I’ve used lots of masks and this one was average to good, and did a good job of cleaning my skin. The Cleansing Gel is light and gentle and foams quite well. I’m not too sure about how the Skin Soften and Melanin Expel Extract has worked, but I just put it on after cleaning as an extra step.

Oxycerin

My sister gave me a bottle of Oxycerin’s Acne Serum to try out – she has bad acne and I get really bad breakouts during exam times or when I’m really busy and stay up late. I have been using this serum on and off for about two months, mainly at night before bed. This Serum is a bit more expensive than the other brands you can get in chemists. It’s made from 5% tea tree oil and doesn’t have benzoyl peroxide, which I’m allergic to, and which is used in most anti-acne creams, and can be quite irritating to the skin.

Cystic Acne – Causes and Treatment

Cystic acne treatment begins with an understanding of what cystic acne really is. Cystic acne is also known as nodulocystic acne and is, quite basically, a severe type of acne. It consists of inflamed breakouts that can occur not only on the face but also on other parts of the body.

The blemishes can be quite substantial. Some may even be several centimetres wide. Cysts are the most severe manifestation of an acne blemish. They can be both uncomfortable and painful, and appear as soft bumps under the skin’s surface.
