Acne – Treat the Most Common Skin Problem Naturally

September 1, 2015 - Posted by in Acne Skin Wellness


It’s estimated that 85% of teens suffer from acne at some point. That’s not surprising.

Yet 20% of adults also must deal with acne. Most are women suffering from late onset acne (common in women from 20s to 50s) which is thought to be on the rise.

Given how Acne can damage your facial skin, you’ll want to understand the condition to help avoid any scarring.

Let’s take a quick look at what acne is and discover the best ways to prevent and treat it.

What is Acne?

Acne is a dermatological condition where your skin oil builds up around a hair follicle. Oil in and on your skin and hair is normal and healthy. It offers protection from the drying effects of harsh weather.

Acne occurs when dead skin, bacteria, or dried oil blocks the opening on your skin’s pores. Oil builds up underneath resulting in redness and inflammation.

However, for many people (including pregnant or menopausal women) hormonal changes cause oil glands next to hair follicles to produce too much sebum (skin oil) and if the pore is blocked, the sebum builds up putting pressure on the skin’s outer layers. That sets the stage for a potentially injurious outbreak of acne.

When Acne Strikes!

Unfortunately, some sufferer’s skin produces huge amounts of sebum. When blocked, the pimples and large blemishes that appear can actually cause damage to the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin, even if the person does not squeeze them.

The experts believe acne is hormone driven. It doesn’t matter what you eat or drink. Stress and lack of facial cleaning may aggravate it. Severe acne if left unmanaged can leave disfiguring marks and crevices in skin.

How to Control Acne Breakouts

Aside from drugs which reduce sebaceous gland output, you can apply topical serums and use oil-free cleansers to keep skin pores unclogged. Those with severe acne need a physician’s or dermatologist’s care.

If you have occasional acne, oily skin, and blemishes you should:

  1. practice proper cleaning with a good, daily skin care regimen
  2. use an oil-free cleanser and avoid scrubbing the skin
  3. wash your hair daily and keep it away from your face
  4. use a vitamin A or retinol-based serum to regenerate your skin
  5. don’t pick or scratch (you don’t want to damage your sensitive facial skin)

 

 

MonoDerma A15

MonoDermà A15, a pure retinol skin serum should be part of your skin care regimen. It helps with natural exfoliation of the skin and may reduce the amount of oil your skin produces, as well as suppress the formation of androgen, which is a major cause of acne too.

Additionally, use MonoDermà E5, a pure vitamin e based serum which helps maintain balanced hydration, thus discouraging a skin condition where acne breakouts may occur.

    Hello,

    I would like to know if i can use monoderma A15 and C10 during pregnancy ?

    1. Hi Zehra
      Dermocosmetic safety is one of the absolute priorities of MonoDerma products.

      The hypoallergenic formulations, guaranteed by the careful choice of the active ingredients and the cutting edge methods of formulation make products safe for daily use, even during pregnancy.

      Furthermore, the ingredients act locally on the skin, without penetrating into the deep layers or into the blood stream.

      Monodermà C10 can be particularly useful in pregnancy to prevent and treat melasma gravidarum (the dark brown patches that can develop, particularly on the face and neck, in pregnant women).

      Monodermà E5 is indicated to prevent the formation of cracked nipples and stretch marks. It is recommended that Retinol is not used systemically (as an oral supplement) in pregnancy; in contrast, there are no particular contraindications to the topical use of products containing retinol at concentrations below 0.30% (some studies have demonstrate that up to this concentration the ingredient is not absorbed into the blood stream).

      During pregnancy there are no particular contraindications to the topical use of products containing retinol at concentrations below 0.30%. The concentration of Retinol in Monodermà A15 is 0.15%. That said we recommend customers consult their dermatologist or GP before using MonoDermà A15 during pregnancy
