How To Relieve Dryness From Skin Care Products

Sometimes even the best of acne treatments can irritate or dehydrate the skin. Often, people will stop using those products when this happens. Don’t do that!! You will never know how your skin truly reacts to a product if you just stop using it as soon as you see some flakiness!

 

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your products, while dealing with any flaky skin that it might cause:

 

1. Be conscious and understanding of the fact that you are going to have some dryness and peeling from acne products. Period. If a product is truly strong enough to get acne under control it is going to be a bit dehydrating. That’s just the way it is! HOWEVER…there are ways to alleviate the dryness while your skin is adjusting to your new product. Which leads us to tips number 2 through 4!

 

2. Truly, the very best strategy we believe in at The Face Place, is to start off using products very slowly. Your skin needs time! Give it the time it truly needs to adapt to new products.

 

3. A product that we really love is the water-based hydrator, Hydrating Emulsion. By using this product as a layer morning and night, it can help prevent dehydration.

 

4. Finally, a great option for many people is to simply take a 1- to 3-day break from your routine. Just cleanse, tone, and moisturize. After giving your skin a little break, you can start your routine where you left off.

 

Be mindful that the path to clear skin is not easy for many people. It takes dedication, a strict routine, patience, and the right products! It also is best to have a licensed esthetician to help you get there. Book a consultation today, and we can start you on the process of getting to clear skin!

Why You Should Love Your Oily Skin

While most people fall into what we call “combo” skin, meaning dry AND oily, it is important to understand that each “type” of skin is indeed normal! We all have a unique level of natural oil production, as well as differing sizes and activity level of your pores. These differences make each person’s skin distinctive from our friends and family.

 

So…if you have oily (or mostly oily) skin, I guarantee that at some point you have complained about it. Oily skin can smudge makeup, create shine, clog pores, and create an overall “yucky” feeling. And while those all might be totally true, there is a HUGE positive to having some oil in your skin!

 

Natural oil actually protects you from the sun. The first line of defense from mother nature’s elements is called the “lipid barrier.” Lipid is a synonym for liquid fatty substance, and is what stops the environmental elements from sucking all of our moisture out of us. People with more oily skin experience fewer burns, rashes, wrinkles, and UV-induced skin damage. This extra protection means significantly healthier, more well-preserved skin in the later years.

 

If you are still unhappy with your oily skin, or struggle with breakouts due to oily skin, then it is important to find the perfect regimen for your unique skin – and believe me, there is definitely one out there for you! Try first with using an exfoliator for your type of skin, and while the ideal skin regimen varies from person to person, finding what works for you will help with overall shine control, balanced skin moisture, reduced clogged pores, and smoother, more radiant skin.

 

Let me help you find what works best! Maybe an exfoliator a few times a week, or every other day? Maybe a scrub and a serum, or just a serum and a salicylic toner? Play around with your regimen until you achieve the balance that makes you happy, and don’t be afraid of a little oily glow!

 

Bottom line: Don’t completely curse out your oily skin, just know that it’s protecting you, and will keep you looking younger in the long run! Proper exfoliation is the name of the game!

Four Major Acne Triggers

1.Diet. Common thought is that breakouts can be caused by greasy foods. However, sugar, simple carbs, and biotin are more likely to trigger acne. Some of these ingredients can actually irritate hair follicles and cause harsh, inflamed breakouts! Consequently, there are also food allergies that can cause acne. Gluten can be a common trigger, but everyone is different. If you can, try to cut certain things out for a few weeks and see if your skin reacts.

 

2.Cosmetics. Beauty products for your skin and hair can trigger breakouts if they have ingredients that are not acne-safe. Even if a product is labeled “non-comedogenic,” “oil-free,” or promises to not clog pores, all can be problematic depending on your skin type.

 

3.Stress. The hormone cortisol signals the body to produce more oil. Stress is a major trigger of cortisol. While oil can be great for some skin types, for others it causes clogged pores and acne. Yes, sometimes it feels impossible to eliminate stress from daily life, but I love to encourage my clients to seek out ways to manage that stress! Get 8 hours of sleep! Try meditating! Go to yoga! Whatever it is that helps you de-stress, find it and do it. Your skin will thank you!

 

4.Hormonal Changes. Pregnancy and menopause can bring about hormone changes for women, but these life events also come with testosterone. So men AND women: when your testosterone increases, so does oily skin. For women: the week before your menstrual cycle, try to avoid dairy products. For men: avoid as many dairy products as possible! Dairy products can interfere with healthy hormone levels and increase inflammation.
