SKIN Care 101: Breakouts

Sunday, June 14, 2009

hate breakouts? how you wish you can do something about it?

well i do get alot of breakouts, especially during classes because i get exposed to dirt along my way to school and i got an oily type of skin making it prone to acnes. stress can add up too because it triggers the oil glands to produce more sebum causing the pores be clogged and leaving the dirt within the pores. by then acnes starts to grow and become inflamed.

Im really trying my best to seek a good medication without going to a dermatologist coz its expensive. you have to pay for the check up and the medication they prescribe. On my own opinion, in order to treat a certain condition, you must understand it first and knowing what causes it. Acne is considered as a local infection and bacteria causes this condition. "No bacteria, No Pimple" that simple. The main goal is to kill the bacteria present in our skin and there are many products out there that promise to get rid of the stubborn curse! but not all are effective to everyone, its like a trial and error thing. so ill be listing down some of the products i used.

1. Cleanser - washing the face with a facial wash is very important. it can help in flushing out the bacteria. be aware that some cleanser can cause severe dryness. for cleanser, i strongly recommend CETAPHIL. its a mild cleanser and recommended by dermatologist. YOU CAN BUY THIS IN WATSONS

2. Benzoyl Peroxide 5% (Benzac AC wash)- can kill bacteria and considered as a keratolytic which means that you will peel off. this can help your skin to rejuvenate and scrape off dead skin cells but the primary use of this is to kill the bacteria. YOU CAN BUT THIS IN WATSONS

3. DERM A Tretinoin (Optional)- this can help making your face more flawless and can help in curing pimples. i used this a lot because it really helped me to gain a smoother skin and whiter complexion. this is also keratolytic. usually used by night and there is an additional moisturizer which spf tha prevents sun burn. it is important to read the labels of this product because the effect is a bit drastic to some. your skin can will be more sensitive and can cause mild irritation. in some cases this can lead to breakout! BUT take note! its normal. JUST READ THE DIRECTION BEFORE USING THIS! product YOU CAN BUY THIS IN WATSONS

there you have it. some products that can help you out to prevent breakouts! thnx!
