Botox And Fillers For Men. How Different Is It Than Women's Anti Aging?
Botox and dermal fillers make no gender discrimination. It is enticing to both men and women. Men's cosmetics and beauty treatments are becoming increasingly popular. From procedures and treatment areas to locating the proper dermatologist, here's what men really ought to know about dermal fillers and neurotoxins. Injectable Techniques for Men Injectable therapies for men and women differ in a variety of ways. They are based on biological distinctions in the aging process, the composition of muscle fibers in the face, and bone structure. Then there's the matter of skin quality to consider. Because men's skin is thicker, a more robust product can frequently be utilized. The perception of attractiveness has an impact on injectable procedures as well. Our society's judgment of what qualities are feminine or masculine is taken into account while planning injectable treatments. Men, for example, should avoid using filler on the lateral of the cheekbone like women do since it provides a more feminine impression. An arched brow, as well as a very high cheekbone or a small chin, is a typically feminine look, yet generalizations are not always the rule. You generally wouldn't want to generate those conventionally feminine characteristics unless that's the patient's starting bone structure. Also, don't disregard society opinions of wrinkles and fine lines. In women, injectables are routinely used to smooth the skin, although wrinkles are less of a concern in men. The ultimate goal is to restore men's facial angularity and reduce the look of exhaustion or tension, rather than to reduce wrinkles. The sort of product used is also influenced by this distinction in purpose. Certain dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, which can hold a lot of water, may not be appropriate for men, whereas Radiesse holds less water and produces better definition. The former is a HA filler, whereas the latter is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa). So, to achieve the best effects, it's all about quantity, quality, and the type of product you're using. The Benefits of Injectables for Men Fillers and neuromodulators are effective anti-aging treatments that can also be utilized to enhance and define one's appearance. Non-surgical injectables actually serve a vital purpose for guys who desire to rejuvenate their looks when you consider male anatomy. Men's hair is insufficient to conceal actual surgical scars. As a result, skillfully administered Botox and filler can be a strong tool for non-surgical rejuvenation. Neurotoxin Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are common neurotoxins used to soften the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Because men without lines can appear excessively feminine and unnatural, it is necessary to decrease rather than eradicate these wrinkles. One of the first signs of aging in men is between the brows, where they acquire vertical lines called glabellar or '11' lines. These lines are created by frowning and squinting, and males are more likely than women to acquire deep creases here since their skin is thicker and heavier. Botox can assist to relax the'muscles of disapproval,' also known as the corrugator muscles in medicine, and smooth this area, preventing deep wrinkles from forming and taking up residence. While certain lines may be thought to be 'handsome,' others may communicate unwanted emotion. Men with glabellar lines are advised that they appear angry or disapproving when they are not. Most men seek neuromodulators such as Botox to open their eyes and decrease wrinkles. However, prudence is required. As a result, they do not appear to have had any treatment. Dermal Fillers Men choose to treat the under eye hollow or tear trough with filler. As we age, we all lose volume here, but the thicker quality of men's skin and the bone structure of the face in this area make volume loss more evident. What was the final outcome? Under the brow, there are deep shadows. This provides the impression of dark circles and weariness. What is the answer? A modest amount of dermal filler in this area helps to reduce shadows and gives them a more relaxed appearance. Men also seek to increase the definition of their chin and jawline, soften their nasolabial creases, and address volume loss in the lower cheekbones. The idea is to appear masculine and rejuvenated rather than faultless. If You Are Not Yet Ready For Injectables For guys, lasers are routinely utilized as a "gateway" technique. The Brilliant + Clear The Complete treatment is suitable for men who want to improve the appearance of fine lines and discolouration without having to undergo prolonged downtime. For the best outcomes, three 30-minute sessions spread out over three months are required. Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away, making it an excellent choice for individuals who prefer to keep out of the spotlight and avoid downtime. It's a fantastic approach to organically rejuvenate the skin by employing two different types of energy to build more collagen and level out the skin tone. Men's Injectables Upkeep Male patients are no different, since routine maintenance is an unavoidable component of any injectable therapy. Neurotoxin dissolves in four months, whereas filler might endure from six months to two years. The area of the face injected, as well as the type of filler used, influence the exact longevity. Men are less likely than women to come in for regular maintenance visits, thus longevity, or the lack thereof, might be an issue for some. On average, most men will come in twice a year, which is generally more than enough. Furthermore, while men and women might expect comparable outcomes in terms of how long injectable neurotoxin and filler persist, the amount of product needed to accomplish results varies. Men require nearly double the amount of product that women do.
How to Clean Gua Sha Tools?
Everyone gets that cleaning your Gua Sha tools is an important part of having them. Cleaning up after a Gua Sha session can be messy, but it doesn't have to be. We know that you care about the tools you use and want them to stay in good condition for a long time. These tools are important for proper post-treatent care.I have been researching on how to clean tools for several weeks now, but most of the articles I read are not specific eno ugh. If you are looking for information on how to clean Gua Sha tools, this is the article for you.  WHY WE NEED TO CLEAN GUA SHA TOOLS? Gua Sha Therapy is an Asian therapy using either skin scraping or skin brushing to remove stagnation, push blood and qi, and unblock meridians in the body. Most of the time gua sha tools are used to scrape off the top layer of skin. Regular cleaning of the gua sha tools helps users avoid health risks while maximizing the therapeutic potential of gua sha therapy. Disease-causing pathogens can be transferred unknowingly on the surface of gua sha tools if not cleaned regularly. As your skin produces oil, it can build up on the gua sha tools. This is an inevitable occurrence, especially if you use the same set of tools for several clients. If you don't clean your Gua Sha tool after each use, it can cause several skin problems such as acne, greasiness, breakouts, and more. But this doesn't mean your tools can't be cleaned with ordinary soap and water. HOW TO CLEAN GUA SHA TOOLS?  Materials needed:  gentle Soap, a bowl or container of water, a soft damp cloth, toothbrush.  Step 1: Rinse your tools with tap water to get rid of any dead skin or wipe with a soft damp cloth after use. Step 2: Filled in a small bowl with warm water and a light detergent or gentle soap. Let them soak for a while and wash with water again. Step 3: Use a toothbrush to ensure that all of the grooves are free from dirt and hair. Step 4: Rotate the tools in the water to remove soap. Step 5:Rinse in clean water and allow to air dry naturally after washing on a towel.so that they will not become moldy.  That is all that you can clean the tools throughly to retain a smooth surface. HOW DO I DISINFECT A GUA SHA TOOL? We all know the importance of maintaining the integrity of our professional skin care tools to avoid contaminating our precious facial skin; however, some of us forget to disinfect our tools after each treatment. With regular use, the tools should be disinfected after each use. There are many microorganisms, both visible and invisible to the eye, which exist on our beauty products to stop disease of the skin,you would like to regularly disinfect your beauty tools, even a Gua Sha  While a daily soap is suitable for cleaning, it can’t do a correct job of disinfecting. If you're like most of the people and you don’t want to waste plenty of money on high-level disinfectants, you'll always keep it simple and obtain the work done. Here is how. Before you let them air dry, spray or wipe some alcohol to disinfect these tools. However,you would like to form bound to let the alcohol evaporate before you let the tool touch the skin. HOW TO STORE A GUA SHA TOOL? Maintaining your gua sha tools is also very important. Since our Gua Sha tools are made of rose quart or jade stones. They are fragile. If we drop them accidentally, it may damage the stones. Make sure when you want to store your items,  slip carefully the gua sha tools into the pocket of the carry case or in your drawer.But one point that you need to remember keep them dry before storage.Moisture can easily breed bacteria. So it is important that keep your tools as far from bacteria and contamination as possible and storage the product in a dry place. For regular treatments you can also refrigerate them before each session. Keep gua sha tools in the fridge and use them chilled on your gua sha treatment zone - like a fruit pop on a hot day! Recommended by Chinese doctors and practitioners. Guasha tools must be kept in a fridge if it is going to be used within the next 24hrs. This helps reduce swelling of the skin and improves blood circulation in the surface, which makes a fine cut. The most common reason a guasha would cause harm on the skin is due to poor circulation on the cut area, so generally one should wait for 30 - 60mins before using it after cutting on an area. 
3 Cosmetic Treatments that Celebrities Love
Hollywood stars look picture perfect on the Red Carpet. They work hard to achieve that uber-glam look by having a healthy diet and fitness routine. But every now and then, they do get a little help from their dermatologist to refresh their timeless look. Here are the top 3 treatments that celebrities indulge in... Botox Botox is used to achieve a tight and shiny forehead, lift-up eyebrows that droop with age and get rid of the creases that occur on the outer corner of your eyes when you smile. Almost every celebrity facing the camera gets Botox at some time in their life. When this treatment is done in the correct way, with low doses, the face looks ageless. But when the dose is too much or wrongly placed, then our celebrities end up looking more botched up than beautiful! Lip Fillers Celebrities have lip fillers for two reasons. The young ones may feel insecure about thin lips and want to plump up their pout. While the older ones lose lip volume as they age and also develop whistler's lines or smoker's lines. Lip fillers are like art, or sculpture. Your dermatologist is responsible for creating a beautiful shape that looks natural and complements your facial proportions. Badly done lips are called a 'trout pout' or 'duck-bill lips' and there's nothing appealing about them. Skin Tightening Everyone of us including celebrities use anti-aging creams. But that isn't the true reason behind their tight skin. Celebrities indulge in skin tightening treatment such as Thermage, Ultherapy and Fraxel once a year. These are usually done when they are on vacation, to hide the down time. These skin tightening treatments can reverse several years of skin aging with just a single treatment session. The result is a lifted, firm and rejuvenated skin. If you wish to glam up your look consider speaking to your dermatologist about these treatment options.
Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
Lips are frequently left out of anti-aging discussions. Volume loss and wrinkles around the mouth, are some of the first signs of ageing. Our lips undergo a number of significant changes as they age. Most lips lose volume and definition over time. But smokers, those with lighter skin, and those who spend a lot of time in the sun are more likely to have lines and wrinkles. Lines can also be exacerbated by those who purse their lips when speaking. So, if your current lip care routine consists of swiping lip balm on chapped lips, there's definitely more you can do to to make your lips look fresh and youthful.  Lip Anti-Aging Serums and Balms The newer lip balms deliver anti-aging ingredients and hydration right where you need it. Look for one that includes a retinol derivative, a potent ingredient known for increasing collagen production and fading dark spots. The issue is that retinol can be irritating when applied directly to the lips, so make sure to moisturise thoroughly afterwards. Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and intense hydrators like coconut oil are other ingredients to look for to make lips appear fuller. Within a few days, your lips will gradually plump up. Lip balms containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which chemically exfoliate the top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, softer pout.  The simplest anti-aging lip hack, however, is to remember that the skin around your mouth should be treated in the same manner as the rest of your skin. Apply a nightly serum there as well if you're applying it elsewhere. If you're going to smear sunscreen on your lips, use a chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of at least 30. To prevent damage from daily UV light, the skin around the mouth should be protected every morning with sunscreen and topical antioxidants, just as it would be in other areas. In the evening, use retinol, growth factors, and peptides to repair your skin.  Peels and Lasers  A quick laser zap or a chemical peel can help treat fine lines and pigmentation around the lips that do not seem to improve with topical treatments. The lines form because the muscles around the mouth constrict, folding the overlying skin. Lasers and peels can be used in the office to improve skin tone and texture while also reducing the appearance of lines. Skin lightening ingredients such as kojic acid or hydroquinone derivatives are also excellent choices for lip lightening as well. Microneedling causes micro-injuries to the skin around the lips, stimulating collagen and elastic production. There is less downtime than with a laser or peel, and it is not melanin or pigment sensitive.  Lip Injectables Not all lip fillers are performed with the goal of creating Kylie Jenner lips. The lip's border, known as the "white roll," loses definition with age. Because you lost structure at the border, it is common for lipstick to bleed from the red part of your lip onto your skin. To restore volume and structure around the mouth, a filler is recommended. Over-treating the lip border can result in duck lips, but subtle treatments can help to distinguish the lip from the skin around the mouth.  Injections of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or the more subtle Volbella, can make the lips more defined and thus younger-looking without significantly changing their size. If you're more concerned about wrinkles and lines around your mouth, a few drops of Botox can also help soften and relax the muscles around your mouth. There is one small catch: you won't be able to purse your lips as much, and you may be unable to drink from a straw for a few months. If you can't give up your daily iced coffee, peels or lasers with your dermatologist may be a better wrinkle-fighting option for you. Source: Lip Anti-Aging 101 - Secrets to a Youthful Pout
How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles - Eye Creams Vs. Under Eye Treatment
If you adhere to a strict nightly skincare regimen, you may expect to wake up with skin that is refreshed and revitalized. Instead, you awaken with dark circles under your eyes and a tired, worn-out appearance. So much for a peaceful night's sleep. Lack of sleep, dehydration, and a familial propensity are all factors that contribute to dark circles and bags under the eyes. Due to the fact that dark under-eye circles are often caused by a variety of factors, we require more than just an eye cream to see significant improvement over time. What Causes Dark Circles Under the Eyes? To treat dark circles under the eyes, you must first determine what is causing them. It is possible that there is a hereditary component. The most prevalent reason of dark circles is due to the architecture of the face. Making the eyes appear "sunken" may cause shadowing to occur beneath the eyes, which appears as dark circles under the eyes. The look of the under-eye area can also be affected by the passage of time. As we grow older, it is possible that dark circles under the eyes will become more noticeable. Dark circles under the eyes, on the other hand, are not always heritable. Fatigue, stress, weakening of the ocular muscles, and ageing are all possible causes. Alcohol, smoking, and excessive caffeine consumption can all exacerbate the effects of darkness. Certain medical conditions, on the other hand, can have an effect on the under-eye. Systolic disorders, such as wasting syndrome, which is characterized by bodily weakness and wasting as a result of a severe chronic illness, gastrointestinal ailments such as celiac disease and thyroid difficulties, as well as hormonal imbalances, can cause this black hue to appear. Eczema, contact dermatitis, and food allergies are all conditions that some people suffer from. Dark circles beneath the eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, including chemotherapy treatments. Why Do Eye Creams Fail to Produce Results? Despite the fact that eye treatments can help to tighten, brighten, and de-puff the eyes, they frequently fail to eliminate dark circles, particularly those caused by heredity or aging. You will never be able to "get rid" of black eye rings that are caused by your facial structure. That does not imply that you must give up your favorite foods. External factors may be responsible for the development of under-eye bags. It is possible to treat dark circles under the eyes with creams and lotions if they are caused by allergies or lack of sleep. Under-eye circles are a common problem. Professional assistance may be your best bet for reducing those pesky dark circles. A dermatologist will employ fillers, peels, and lasers to give the appearance of being more youthful and awake. It has the potential to make a significant difference. PRP Treatment Microneedling and PRP work together to smooth out hollows and fill in volume loss areas around the eyes, making hollows around the eyes less apparent. Chemical Peels Light chemical peels remove dead skin cells might help to improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes. Lasers Gentle lasers can also be used to treat dark pigmentation under the eyes, which is a common problem. Undereye Dermal Fillers With the use of a hyaluronic acid-based under-eye dermal filler, the most dramatic results can be achieved. The most effective method of treating dark circles under the eyes is using filler. They work by filling up the hollows around the eyes, making them appear brighter and free of shadows, and they last for several hours. The tear trough filler is injected into the tear trough for a 24-month duration. The Final Outcome While under-eye treatments can help with puffiness, crow's feet, and fine wrinkles, dark circles are a more serious problem that necessitates additional attention. Fillers, chemical peels, and lasers can all be used to brighten the under-eye area, depending on the cause. A dermatologist's consultation helps ensure that you receive the most appropriate treatment for your specific needs.
Lasers Vs Chemical Peels - What's Best For Your Skin?
Scarring from acne? Fine lines and wrinkles? Pigmentation and sun spots? Is any of this ringing a bell? They do happen, regrettably, and when they do, we panic. We've looked everywhere, from skincare products that claim to remove age spots to lengthy Google searches, expecting to find the 'magic' treatment that can eradicate the skin's textural imperfections and beyond. Fortunately, there are alternatives. Chemical peels and laser treatments, two skin resurfacing techniques that remove damaged skin to encourage skin regeneration, are used. What is the final outcome? Smoother and more rejuvenated skin. Combating skin problems has never been easier, but if you're new to the world of skin resurfacing, it might be intimidating. What Is the Difference Between Chemical Peels and Laser Treatments? Skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and laser treatments remove old skin to promote the formation of new skin. Both procedures are frequently used to treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun exposure issues such as pigmentation spots. Chemical peels and laser treatments are distinguished by the procedure itself. The first, as the name implies, employs chemical treatments to remove damaged skin, whilst the second employs lasers. Chemical peels use different amounts of acid solutions to treat the skin's outer layer. There are three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial chemical peels (for example, VI Peel and lactic acid peels) are delicate and exfoliate the skin lightly with weak acids. Medium chemical peels (for example, glycolic acid peels and TCA peels) are more invasive and penetrate the middle and outer layers of the skin. Deep chemical peels (e.g., phenol acid peels) are the most potent, employing strong acids to penetrate as well as remove damaged skin cells. Laser resurfacing treatments use light beams to penetrate the skin, eliminating one column at a time. Although laser removal is more exact, it is often more expensive than chemical peels. There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers (such as CO2 and erbium) offer the best effects by vaporizing the skin. Non-ablative lasers (for example, Fraxel) are less intrusive to the skin because they heat it rather than destroying it. Because non-ablative lasers are less strong than ablative lasers, numerous sessions may be required to achieve the optimum results. While chemical peels and laser treatments are distinct in their advantages and the concerns they address, there is some overlap in the issues they address. A strong TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel, for example, can give resurfacing comparable to that of a resurfacing laser, or both peels and lasers can be utilized to treat acne and acne scars. In terms of skin tone, the two surgeries are also dissimilar. Chemical peels assist those with darker skin tones the most because they are an excellent pigmentation treatment. People with dark skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation concerns such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to an overabundance of melanin in their skin (PIH). Acid solutions are used in chemical peels to encourage collagen formation, and antioxidants are used to further penetrate and treat pigmentation in darker skin. What Are the Most Common Chemical Peel Types? Vi Peel The VI Peel is a painless, mild peel that is appropriate for all skin types and tones. It is made up of trichloroacetic acid, Retin-A, salicylic acid, phenol, and vitamin C and is widely used to treat hyperpigmentation and repair UV damage. Lactic peel A lactic peel is made from milk and is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It balances the pH of the skin and exfoliates gently by dissolving dead skin cells. Glycolic peel Glycolic acid, which is used in glycolic peels, stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and elastin by targeting the skin's outer layer. It is frequently used to treat acne, acne scars, and to tighten pores. TCA peel A TCA peel, which is more harsh than a glycolic peel, contains trichloroacetic acid. It is commonly used to lighten skin pigmentation and smooth wrinkles. Phenol peel To address severe wrinkles and discolouration, a phenol peel penetrates the skin thoroughly. When compared to gentler peels, it typically necessitates a lengthy recovery period and may be unpleasant. What Are the Most Frequently Used Laser Treatments? Fraxel Laser Treatment The Fraxel Laser Treatment uses FDA-approved fractional laser technology to revitalize skin. This laser is best effective on acne scars and tiny wrinkles that are mild to moderate in severity. CO2 Laser Treatment The CO2 Laser Treatment uses pixelated carbon dioxide lasers to treat more severe skin issues like deep wrinkles and acne scars. In general, this laser is unsuccessful for treating skin redness. Erbium Laser The Erbium laser is a less invasive and gentler laser treatment than the CO2 laser. The laser increases collagen formation by penetrating the epidermis (the outer skin layer). It's commonly used to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Which Of These Is the Best Skin Care Treatment? It all boils down to your skin type and concerns, in a nutshell. It can be difficult to determine the best course of action, therefore it is always advisable to visit with a dermatologist to discuss your concerns and treatment choices. Not all chemical peels and laser procedures are suited for people with darker skin tones. Are you unsure about your situation? When in doubt, always consult a dermatologist. THE MOST EFFECTIVE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT A chemical peel used to treat hyperpigmentation. Textural changes, such as atrophic or indented scars, respond better to laser skin treatments. A TCA chemical peel, on the other hand, can help with acne scars. Combination methods, which include laser, peels, subcision, and/or dermal fillers, are widely used. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IF THIS IS MY FIRST CHEMICAL PEEL/LASER TREATMENT? With chemical peels, expect some redness and peeling following, depending on the type of peel. Not every peel results in apparent peeling. Post-laser skin side effects may include redness, peeling, swelling, and bruising, depending on the laser used. If you use topical treatments, you should discontinue them a few days before the procedure. You may be advised to stop using retinoids, hydroxy acids, benzoyl peroxide, or other harsh, drying, and potentially irritating substances depending on the peel and laser. As a preventative step, patients with a history of cold sores may be given antiviral drugs. WILL A CHEMICAL PEEL OR A LASER TREATMENT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MY SKIN? If you have any of the following conditions, you should avoid chemical peels and laser treatments: - Active infections in the treatment regions - Will be exposed to sunlight after treatment - Have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars. - A lack of enough post-treatment recuperation time. - Have a darker skin tone (this applies to certain types of chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments). Whether you choose a chemical peel or a laser treatment, there is a resurfacing skin option for you!

6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
