While you may need to relax from time to time, acne never takes a vacation® That's why it's so important to have a plan of action for maintaining good skin health when you travel® While treating your breakouts on the go may take a little more effort than your normal skincare routine, it's well worth the extra work®
Keep in mind that these travel tips are not going to treat your acne® Unless you're doing something about the primary causes of your breakouts, this advice won't be very helpful® However, when used in conjunction with products that address the underlying causes, these five tips will help ensure that travelling doesn't take a major toll on your skin®
Summer is in full swing, and if you're like most people, you're spending more time enjoying the great outdoors® Unfortunately, all this extra time outside puts you at risk for suntans and sunburns® Using sunscreen may be an easy fix to this problem but you need to use it right and®®® you should match your sunscreen with your skin type®
There is also a myth that sun exposure will treat acne - as tanned skin may make pimples a little less visible, exposure to UV rays causes inflammation; the last thing that acne prone skin needs® Therefore, it is important to actually know what criteria your sunscreen should meet to provide a solution, not a problem, to healthy skin®
Many acne sufferers try to avoid certain foods under the belief that they are the cause of their breakouts® While there are some problems with this line of reasoning, it's definitely true that the things we put into our bodies have an effect on them, and most people would be wise to more closely consider the consequences of their diet®
One thing that our typical modern diet is loaded with is sugar® From sweets and breads to pasta sauce, it's difficult to find products that aren't full of the stuff® Summer happens to be one of those "sweeter" times of year with sugary drinks, ice creams and even fruits (ex® grapes, cherries and bananas are loaded with sugar)®
Persistent chronic acne is a problem that plagues countless women worldwide® We typically think of acne as an issue that only affects teenagers, but in reality, acne affects women (and men) of any age-in fact, some women don't experience their first acne breakouts until well into their 30s or 40s!
There are lots of products and treatments on the market today that claim to quickly treat acne breakouts among women, but how can you be sure what they're saying is true? The only way to know how to effectively fight against women's acne is to take a look at its origins-both what they are and what they aren't® While lots of women think they know what is causing their acne, the real answer might surprise them®®®and you!
By now, we all know that adult acne is on the rise--for women and men alike® What you might not know is that as more and more men deal with acne, more and more men are becoming comfortable not only using acne treatments but also on relying on cosmetic products to conceal acne and other unwanted skin marks during the time of treatment®
Our anonymous Facebook pole revealed that a number of guys use corrective cosmetics to cover up their acne breakouts®
All acne is caused by an overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands in your skin® The fluctuating hormones you experience as a teen can heavily contribute to this overproduction of sebum® This excess sebum can clog your pores, and mixed with bacteria and dead skin cells, may lead to whiteheads, blackheads and finally pimples and cysts®
The fact is, a healthy sex life has many health benefits including improving the quality of your skin and actually helping in some instances to fight acne®
As you know, acne is a manifestation of an internal imbalance, most often an imbalance of sex hormones (androgens/testosterone, estrogen and progesterone)®
For many, the cold clear days of winter bring more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks® They also bring uncomfortable dryness to the skin, especially on your face but also on your hands and feet® For some people, the problem is worse than just a general tight, dry feeling® Skin can get so dry it results in flaking, cracking, or even eczema (in which the skin becomes inflamed)®
Dry skin is never a sign of healthy skin® So how do we stop winter skin problems before they even start?
