Makeup & Acne: Truth and Myths

Truth: If you are an acne sufferer, wearing makeup is one of the worst things you can do. The vast majority of compact foundation and liquid make-up are not good choices.

Myth: Popular make-up brands that promise to hide blemishes work. This is so false! All it does is add to the problem. Applying make-up containing pore-clogging ingredients (which exists in almost all major make-up brands) only aggravates acne by clogging the pore again!

Truth: If you’re going to wear make-up anyways, stick to water-based or glycerin-based products.

Myth: Once you find a make-up product that works, it will always work! Unfortunately, make-up manufacturers are always changing the ingredients in their products. Ask your acne specialist for a list of pore-clogging ingredients, and before you purchase that same old product, double check the label to make sure nothing has changed.

Truth: Loose mineral powders are your best option for coverage. They help eliminate oily shine, and if you purchase a high quality mineral make-up, they have anti-inflammatory properties which helps with redness of acne. Loose mineral powders also provide great coverage. There are a lot of videos on the internet on how to build coverage with loose minerals.

Myth: Eye make-up is not usually a problem for acne sufferers.
 
Some Other Tips:
Most blushes are filled with pore cloggers.

Eye make-up is not usually a problem for acne sufferers but be aware of make-up removers and skin wipes. The majority of skin wipes on the market contain pore clogging ingredients.

Lip products can cause problems for acne sufferers. They usually contain many comedogenic (pore clogging) ingredients. The problem with lip products is that they travel from the lip area. The wax in lip products is not the problem, it is the oils. Make sure the oils in your lip products are something simple like castor oil, mineral oil or petrolatum rather than isopropyl myristate. A good choice is petroleum jelly or Aquaphor.

Needling Your Skin??

Do you want younger looking skin but don’t want the risk of fillers, or are extra sensitivity to sun?

Then come in for the new treatment the Face Place offers: micro needling! It is just as effective as a laser treatment but (unlike the laser treatment) can actually be repeatedly indefinitely!

Micro needling therapy (or collagen induction therapy – CIT) is minimally invasive and non-surgical. This skin rejuvenation procedure uses a micro needling device to pierce the epidermis and create a controlled skin injury without the heat that a laser treatment produces. It creates thousands of tiny superficial micro spots in the skin by using a dermal roller. This stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal itself to improve blood supply, soften wrinkles and scars, and produce new collagen. Micro needling also releases growth in the skin cells that promote a scar-less healing after the treatment!

Today, the skin rejuvenation treatments that are available seem abundant. But micro needling has actually been around for decades and has only recently gained popularity and become the easiest, most effective skin rejuvenation treatment available.

Here are some other benefits of the micro needling treatment:
--Improves blood circulation
--Helps to better absorb active ingredients in creams and topical serums
--Safe for all skin types
--Natural and holistic!
--Less expensive than laser treatment
--Minimal discomfort
--Minimal recovery time compared to traditional lasers
 
At the Face Place, and at many other micro needling treatment centers around the world, we have seen first hand how results are immediate, progressive, and cost effective. For the absolute best results, combine it with Face Reality home care a few weeks before hand, and plan on treatments over the course of 3-6 months, every 4 weeks.

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!
