Tackling Teenage Skin Care Problems - Finding The Very Best Teen Acne Treatment

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting 40 to 50 million Americans annually. Approximately 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 have been inflicted with acne at some point in time.

In times where the way you look has an impact on your level of confidence and ability to socialize, many teenagers find themselves feeling insecure and uncertain, retreating from various social situations. Some are constantly teased and bullied because of this common skin condition. With treatments available to eliminate this condition, there’s no point in suffering through the distress.

Banish those blemishes now! Here are some facts that you should keep in mind that will help you develop a strategy for the best natural acne treatment:

1.    Focus On A More Specific Treatment

The factors and underlying causes behind acne for a 15 year old boy and a 30 year old woman may be very different. It cannot be compared. And hence, the treatments will vary too. Stress, excess of androgen, cortisol or multiplication of Propionibacterium acnes is a common cause of teen acne. In adults, the problem could be alcohol, excess makeup, diets, etc.

A common reason behind the mass failure of most acne treatments is because of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that simply cannot be applied here. Look out for a more specific treatment that factors in your specific symptoms and caters to your age group, i.e., teen acne specific treatments.

2.    Opting for Natural Makeup

As skincare specialists, we get asked often by teenage girls, does excess makeup worsen acne? While lip sticks and eyeliners have no substantial impact, the kind of foundation you use, along with finishing powders and blush, can in fact, inflame acne. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, it was estimated that approximately 25% of U.S. citizens have suffered a negative skin reaction to at least one synthetic beauty product. So, you need to choose wisely. We recommend picking from a variety of natural skincare products that have been tested for safety on all kinds of skin.

3.    Look For Success Stories – How Effective Has the Treatment Been?

With the numerous treatments that you’ve come across, most of them have been a monumental disappointment. We hear it all the time. This is why you must look for one with proven results. Look for success stories of teenagers post-treatment. Testimonials are perhaps the best way for you to gauge the credibility and effectiveness.

4.    Look For A Long Term Solution – Not Quick Results

How often are we lured by the possibilities of ‘immediate results’? They offer you a temporary satisfaction, and just when you find yourself content, you see signs of acne showing up again. It is important to understand that the best of treatments take time. The process involves understanding the specific skin types, using scientifically proven formulas and innovative technologies that contribute toward successful results. But it takes time, and the results are guaranteed!

Restoring Firmness to your Neck without Surgery

Are you unhappy with your neck? Do you feel that your neck gives away your age or even worse, looks older than what it should?

There are many contributing factors as to why our necks age more quickly than our face:

1. Fewer sebaceous glands- Allows for dry, crepey skin

2. Less fatty tissue- Lack of support and smoothness

3. Less Attention- How often do you moisturize and remember to put sunscreen on your neck?

I have developed a neck treatment protocol that will restore the firmness in your neck, even out skin discolorations, and smooth wrinkles. This picture is of an actual Fresh Faced Skin Care client. She had a series of 4 treatments in a 2 month time frame. Imagine a fresher, younger looking neck in only 2 months! Contact me for more details at info@freshfacedskincare.com.

Should I be using a Serum?

Aug 2, 2014 2:46:00 AM

Should I be using a Serum?

This is a commonly asked question in my skin care clinic. The answer is yes. I routinely tell my clients if you only had money to spend on one product, spend it on a serum.

The reason is simple: serums create the most change in the skin. This is because serums contain high concentrations of active ingredients. These active ingredients are often formulated in a low molecular weight or lightweight base. This allows the product to absorb readily into the skin and penetrate deeper than a heavier weight formulation, such as a moisturizer.

There are many different types of serums offered by skin care manufacturers. They are created to prevent the skin from damage, protect the skin from damage, and/or correct damage.

"What is the best serum?"

The answer depends on what concerns you have for your skin. Serums are made with specific ingredients to address specific concerns. For example, if your concern is acne, you may opt for a serum with an exfoliating active ingredient such as salicylic acid to encourage quicker cell turnover. However, if your concern is hyperpigmentation, you would want a serum with known brightening properties, such as licorice root extract.

"How do I use a serum?"

No matter what serum you buy, you must always use it directly on clean skin (immediately following cleansing). This allows the product to absorb into the skin. Otherwise, it will sit on top of the skin and won't be effective. How often you use the serum depends on the manufacturer's instructions for use. Applications may be once or twice a day.

Toner: Is it Necessary?

Jun 3, 2014 2:41:00 AM

Toner: Is it Necessary?

This question is asked often by my clients: Is toner really necessary?

The answer is this: Yes!

Toner plays a very important role in the cleansing process.

Do you have pesky blackheads that never seem to go away? Toner may be the answer.

THE 3 FUNCTIONS OF TONER:

1. Finish the cleansing process- This will ensure that leftover cleanser has been removed, in addition to any remaining makeup, dirt, or oil.

2. Exfoliate the pore- This helps keep the pores clean and free of dead skin cell build-up.

3. Resets your skin's pH- This is possibly the most important role that a toner plays. Your skin has an acidic pH of about 5.5, which contributes to your skin's defense to foreign invaders. Cleansers are alkaline in nature, meaning they have a pH much higher than your skin. This is necessary, as it serves to clean debris. However, when you wash your face with something alkaline, your skin is now fighting to achieve its normal acidic pH in order to function properly. What does this mean? It means that when you use a toner after cleansing, your skin will achieve its normal pH much faster and any skin care products that you apply after will be able to function as they are intended.

Bottom Line: Toner makes your skin able to accept serums, moisturizers, etc. easier. Therefore, they can work better.
