You don’t need to take drugs and use expensive creams to treat acne. Facials have a powerful ability to reduce acne without harmful chemicals. And the science proves it!
Many people believe that acne and puberty go hand in hand – you can’t possibly have acne vulgaris as an adult, right? That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Researchers from the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology observed data from a questionnaire involving 208 ranging from 25 to 45 years of age and they found some shocking facts. The majority of the test subjects (80.3%) had visible facial lesions and that affected the women’s quality of life negatively – most notably it was related to depression, anxiety and even failure to properly concentrate on daily tasks (school, work etc.).
That’s why we’re going to focus on some methods for effectively dealing with acne in today’s post, and most notably we’ll take a look at facials for acne. First and foremost, let’s have a look at what a facial actually is.
In essence, a facial is a face mask that aims to rejuvenate and cleanse the skin, while also improving blood circulation. Because facials exfoliate dead skin cells and cleanse your pores, your skin will look healthier as a direct result of that. Here at BHRC, we even offer soothing and relaxing facials so that both your mind and body can relax.
Now, a standard facial procedure will most likely include the following techniques:
This is supported by scientific data, namely a 2013 study from the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology involving 91 patients with acne (mostly teens). They found that even a basic foaming skin cleanser or a moisturizer (with SPF30) can help with epidermal hydration and improve test subject’s acne in general. In fact, they measured a 5.71% increase in skin hydration at the end of the clinical trial (28 days).
So, in conclusion, it’s safe to assume that skin care is essential for effectively treating acne vulgaris, which may sometime even leave unpleasant marks on your face. This brings us to another subject:
A study conducted by the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology found that 95% of people with acne vulgaris experienced scaring. Researchers state that severe acne can leave permanent scars and that can lead to bigger problems, psychological problems – lowered self-esteem and a generally reduced quality of life.
They also classified the 3 main types of scars that acne leaves:
Still, even if your scars are not permanent, they can take a long time to fully heal. That’s why facials for acne scars can help you speed up the recovery process. Here are some of the most common types of facial treatment used for acne-related scars:
These are certainly one of the best facials for acne overall as well. And while your mom and dad probably told you to steer clear of zit-popping, it really is inevitable to have some acne scars if you went through a severe form of acne. Anyway, you should take something into consideration before giving facials a try:
A lot of women are scared of facials, mainly because they’ve heard myths and legends about the infamous post-facial breakouts. However, the truth is that having a breakout after a facial treatment is a perfectly normal thing – in fact, it probably means that the facial procedure was sufficient.
The “why does my skin break out after a facial?” question can be answered in a simple way – because your body is detoxifying.
Since facials are a way of detoxification, it’s only logical that by the end of it, your body will release all the toxins and impurities through the skin. And as these toxins are being released through the skin, they might very well irritate it and cause it to breakout in pimples and rashes.
Your aesthetician will most likely be able to tell you if there’s anything to worry about. Just keep in mind that after this detoxifying procedure, your pores will be much clearer and this means that future breakouts will be less likely to occur.
Now, let’s answer another vital question:
Definitely more often than women who have normal or dry skin, that’s for sure. Note that the skin is actually a living organ and it takes around 30 days for the cells to move up from the dermis to the epidermis (the surface), where they eventually die and are cast off.
When you have an acne-prone skin with blackheads and clogged pores, your best bet is to get a facial more than once a month. And as your skin calms down and becomes cleaner and healthier, there’s no problem to stretch out the facial sessions.
Here are some of the main factors to consider as to how often you should be getting facials:
Obviously, acne is not only a teenage problem. As you already saw, it actually affects a significant number of adults as well. And while teens can shrug it off as just a part of their juvenile years, acne can have a very negative impact on grown-ups.
That’s why employing a reasonable tactic for dealing with acne vulgaris can improve the quality of your life. This is where facials come into play, as an efficient, modern and relaxing method for cleansing the facial skin and giving you a more youthful and healthier appearance.
