Acne: Adult, Peri, and Post Menopausal

ACNE DAILY SKIN CARE

Acne results when the skin's sebaceous glands produce too much oil, leading to clogged pores, according to the AAD. Oily skin also provides a fertile environment for acne-causing bacteria to take hold and proliferate

Mild acne can be a bother, but it can usually be treated with an over-the-counter (OTC) medication that you can purchase without a doctor’s prescription.

  • Avoid irritants, such as abrasive scrubs, alcohols or greasy products.
  • Use products that are water-based or "non-comedogenic".
  • After cleansing, try Benzoyl peroxide - available in various strengths. If you have dry skin, try a weaker concentration.
  • Alpha-hydroxy acids (glycol, lactic, pyretic, and citric acid) can also help. And they're great for wrinkles too! 

Check out our cleansing recommendation
on our Facial Skincare page.




Glycolic Acid and Alpha Hydroxy Acids do not prevent the sebaceous glands from producing oil; instead, they work to regenerate, or peel off, the top layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores in the process. Once the skin's top layer is gone, new, clear skin forms. 

They also: 

  • Exfoliate away any rough skin, and brighten your complexion.
  • Help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating your skin cells to make new collagen inside your skin where it matters and where it can plump up wrinkles.
  • Help lighten and even uneven skin pigmentation and hyperpigmentation from melasma or age spots because at this strength it's a very effective skin whitening cream.
  • Give you more youthful, moist and supple skin texture by stimulating your skin cells to make more hyaluronic acid inside your skin; hyaluronic acid helps hold water inside your skin so that it doesn't look dehydrated. Healthy young skin has more hyaluronic acid than older, thin, dry and dehydrated skin.

 

Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Anti-Wrinkle Creme
10% AHA. Concentrated pure glycolic acid (one of the most effective alpha hydroxy acids on the market) leaves skin visibly firmer, smoother, and more refined with a simple, once-a-day application of this treatment lotion. For added moisturizing benefits, pure vitamin E--long known to beautifully rehydrate skin--is also a key ingredient.

An effective anti-aging serum containing Alpha Hydroxy Acid and Aloe to clarify and nourish the skin. Glycolic Acid works by thoroughly exfoliating the outer layer of dry, rough and environmentally damaged skin, leaving it smooth and more radiant. Glycolic Acid reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots with prolonged use. Aloe Vera is an anti-inflammatory identical to skins pH level. Glycerin works by locking in skins natural moisture, preventing dehydration and dry/wrinkled appearance.

Quick Zit Zappers

To reduce the redness of a pimple, apply ice to the area every half hour. You should hold the ice on the affected area for about two minutes. The ice will reduce the swelling and can help with any pain you might be experiencing. Now use a makeup concealer with a tint of green to remove redness and hide the pimple.

  • Apply a mixture of crushed aspirin and water to the affected area.
  • Break open a liquid ibuprofen capsule and rub liquid on.
  • Take Ibuprofen (unless you have an aspirin allergy). Use dosage recommended on package.
  • Visine, offering the same vasoconstriction properties that get the red out of your eyes, can work on pimples too. Soak a cotton swab in Visine and hold it next to your pimple for 5 minutes.

Before bedtime, dab Hydrocortisone Cream on the pimple and cover with a small bandage for better absorption, and so that it doesn't rub off on your sheets and pillow.

Oil and acne? Are we crazy?

The importance of  Jojoba Oil in the treatment of adult acne and rosacea comes from its similarity to the natural restorative oil produced by the sebaceous glands in the dermal layers of the skin.
Jojoba oil is non- allergenic and doesn't clog pores. It will help reverse damage to the epidermis caused by harsh soaps and topical rosacea medications. Jojoba Oil helps balance sebum excretion (related to acne) and helps normalize keratin sloughing off from the dermis (related to acne). 

STILL HAVING PROBLEMS?

Your dermatologist may recommend topical treatments such as Retinoids - vitamin A products such as tretinoin and tazarotene. Not only will these help the acne, but you can start working on those wrinkles too!
