Is your skin acne prone or breaking out more?
Acne, breakouts and blackheads are a common concern among adolescents and adults alike.
Acne is common and is usually treatable. You may need treatments for several months to clear spots. Inflamed acne needs to be treated early to prevent scarring. Since many of us are home now quarantined at home due to coronavirus. Coming in for professional facials and acne treatments is are not possible. I decided to create Facial kits clients can do at home. After we do the skin consult I will customize a skincare "At Home Facial Kit" to achieve the best results. During this time it is important to stick to a skincare routine. Over the years many people share that do not have enough time. This is the perfect time to achieve healthy skin.
Holistic esthetician Leslie Morand suffered from acne as a young teen. Through her own skin and health journey she has formulated a natural approach to clearing up acne. Her mission is to help others, she knows personally how this can affect someone's confidence and self esteem at any age.
There are several reasons why someone has acne. Usually it is a hormonal imbalance. Can be increased by certain stress, foods, skincare products, topical medicines and makeup products that are not right for your face. Currently many people are having maskne.
Maskne is were you are breaking out from wearing a face mask for many hours through out the day. We now carry skincare products to help with that.
Stress management is also part of the holistic approach to healing the skin. When you are stressed it releases cortisol which increases a hormonal imbalance of progestogen and testosterone. I recommend finding ways to help with the daily life stress. These are a few things that help myself to manage stress walking, detox baths, dancing, tapping, qigong and deep breathing.
Many acne skin care and make up products have ingredients that cause sensitivity's and irritations. I have been researching ingredients in skincare products for year's. Still today a product can say it is organic, natural or clean and still cause more issues.
A few ingredients to avoid are coconut oil, mineral oil and talc.
They tend to clog the pores and increase sebaceous glands leading to break outs.
There many more skincare ingredients I would not recommend if you have acne
Wash your pillow case every couple days to not spread the bacteria. Also wash your make up brushes daily after every use.
Avoid using face and baby wipes daily on your face. Most of them are not biodegradable and bad for the environment first of all. Secondly look at the ingredients many of them have mineral oil, alcohol, and paraben's. It is better to use a cleanser that is ph. balanced and will purify and detox your face daily with out irritating your skin.
