Acne Be Gone

Skin Care Aesthetics Glen Allen VAIt’s summertime and we’re feeling fine. Well, we would be feeling more fine if we weren’t so hot! It’s been a hot summer and we’re trying to keep cool with lots of water and trips to the beach. But, if you’re one of those many people suffering from acne or bacne (acne on your back), you might not be so excited when the prospect of hitting the beach comes up. Why? Because some of us are still pretty self conscious when it comes to showing some skin.

Keep reading for suggestions on how to treat your skin to help rid yourself of acne.

Scrub softly.

If you have acne on your face, try avoiding scrubs in total. You never know if you’re overdoing it until you give yourself a full break. If you have bacne, you can try gentle scrubs or slightly exfoliating cleansers. The skin on your back is thicker than that on your face, but it’s still important to be gentle. Excessively scrubbing every day can aggravate the skin.

Off my back.

So many factors can cause your acne or bacne, but start by limiting what actually touches your skin. Clip bangs back, keep your hair in a ponytail, and keep track of what hair products you use. Something designed to make your hair luxuriously soft might be clogging your pores.

See a pro.

Though we don’t recommend overdoing it in the scrub department, there’s nothing like a chemical peel to jump start your skin’s healing. We ensure you won’t get treatments too close together, either, which helps give your skin optimal time to heal. Additionally, after a chemical peel, you will have to baby your skin which is a great way to retrain yourself. If you’re into harsh scrubs you’ll need to take a break from them for around a week, which might help you break the habit of scrubbing so hard in the first place.

Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments can help unclog stubborn pores and reveal fresh skin underneath: perfect for starting your skincare regime with a blank slate. After your treatment, make sure to ask for instructions to keep your face glowing.
