Blemishes, oily skin, imperfections? Not anymore. Beauties, if you’re someone who worries about acne then listen up because we’ve got spot treatments, creams and gels to make your troubles a thing of the past.

What causes acne?

Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.

Each pore of your skin opens to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair, out of the pore, and onto your skin. Sebum helps keeps your skin lubricated and soft. One or more mishaps in this lubrication process can contribute to acne.

Acne might occur, for example, when:

– your follicles produce too much oil

– dead skin cells accumulate in your pores

– bacteria build up in your pores

Any of these concerns can lead to pimples, which develop when bacteria grow in a clogged pore and the oil can’t escape.

Origin of Acne: 

– hormonal changes due to pregnancy or puberty

– polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other endocrine conditions

– cigarette smoking

– poor sleep

– stress

– cleansers, creams, moisturizers, and other beauty products with high oil content

– certain medications, including lithium, some types of hormonal birth control, anticonvulsants, and steroids

– a family history of acne

You have the highest risk of developing acne during puberty. During this time, your body undergoes many hormonal changes. These changes can trigger oil production, leading to an increased risk of acne. Hormonal acne related to puberty usually improves when you reach adulthood, and your breakouts may even stop completely.

Skin care routine to apply

M.A.D Acne Salicylic Cleansing Gel

As the first step to controlling Acne, M.A.D Salicylic Cleansing Gel is designed for maximum effectiveness in the fight against blemishes. It uses a potent blend of 2% Salicylic Acid combined with botanicals to fight oil and help balance oily prone skin.

“We know there are several things going on here,” says Dr. Costi, “but it’s also very closely related to stress.” A stress-related hormone called CRH (corticotrophin-releasing hormone) can bind to receptors in the skin’s sebaceous glands causing them to overwork.


SVR Sebiaclear Cicapeel Gel

Spots, blackheads, pimples… acne is a real headache. Suitable for sensitive and acne prone skin, SVR SEBIACLEAR CICAPEEL dries and helps eliminate pimples and blackheads in record time while preventing the formation of marks. Its invisible oil-free gel texture keeps working all day long.

“The skin’s sebaceous glands are immune organs, and they can create inflammation when overstimulated” Dr. Costi adds. So you end-up with inflammation, swelling or redness which then causes people to scratch or pick at their skin resulting in scarring.

It’s a vicious cycle! Add to stress the effects of a poor diet, pollution and smoking and you’re got a cocktail for disaster.

Bioderma Sebium Night Peel

Bioderma Sébium Night Peel offers the efficacy of a gentle peel at home for combination to oily skin with blemishes: – 15% Glycolic acid provides it with its peeling action.

So what can we do other than meditation and relaxation techniques to reduce stress? “The solution is to always be prepared with a good skin care routine, take care of your diet and never go to sleep without cleansing your face!” confirms Dr. Costi.

Avene Cleanance Comedomed Anti-Blemish

Expert care for oily, acne-prone skin, Avene Cleanance Comedomed is formulated using Comedoclastin™, a plant extract from the seeds of Milk thistle.

Acne could also be affecting other areas in your body like your back or sensitive areas. If you’ve questions or concerns, contact your dermatologist and book your consultation today.

Sesderma Azelac Lotion

 Can’t you deal with your back pimples? Or with those in-grown hairs which ruin a perfect hair-removal?

This lotion is especially indicated for extensive zones of oily or acne-prone skin: face, neck, back, scalp, arms, and legs. It’s fantastic against in-grown hairs —also known as folliculitis, caused by shaving or hair-removal. Its spray format allows its application on every part of the body.

It soothes the skin, diminishes redness and has a sebum-regulating action.

Remember Girls! 

With most acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks. It can take many months or years for your acne to clear up completely. Patience & consistency are key, never forget!
