Treatment For Acne Prone Skin, Large, Oily Pores?
Hello, I’m Livia, 25 years old. I have pimples since I was 14 years old. Pimples are very severe when I was 16 years old but I never squeezed those pimples. But I once dripped orange skin water on my pimples which made my face pockmarked but not too deep. other than that my pores enlarged. I have used various types of acne prone skin care but none is suitable. when I was 20 years old, my mom took me to a beauty doctor’s clinic. I was given acne medicine (face washing soap, day cream and night cream). After swearing at the doctor’s product, my face is fine, even I rarely get pimples. if there are pimples quickly recovery and not imprint. but I want to be separated from the dermatologist. I tried to slowly stop swearing at the product from the doctor. Initially I used Aloe Vera Nat *** rep ***** My face was fine, because I thought my face was normal, then I used Korean skin care Lan ** e, but my face immediately blunted and pimples appeared small and cause black marks. I stopped using the product. Then I went back to using skin care Co ** x, there was no progress on my face and even a lot of pimples appeared in areas that were previously not acne. then now I use the product So ** B ** M * but my face still has pimples and is getting worse. Is my facial skin really not suitable for all types of skincare? Is it a natural treatment that can make my skin healthy without using skin care or makeup? or may I use a product from a doctor forever? please help I’m already frustrated with my zits.
Thank you for the question.
Acne (acne vulgaris), although not a dangerous condition, can indeed be very unsettling for sufferers, especially if it appears in large numbers, does not heal, or leaves scars that are difficult to remove. Not infrequently, because of these pimples and scars, the patient's self-confidence becomes greatly decreased, and his quality is affected too.
Acne is a multifactorial condition. Various factors, such as genetics, certain skin types, hormonal conditions, stress, personal hygiene, skin care performed, bacterial infections, endurance, or sensitivity to certain products and food ingredients can trigger acne. Depending on the cause, type, and severity, acne can be treated with a variety. Often, for acne to improve, your doctor will give you certain skin care products, such as cleansing soap, moisturizers, sunscreens, or special creams and ointments. Some types of drugs or other therapeutic modalities, such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, photodynamic therapy, microdermabrasion, laser therapy, etc. can also be recommended by doctors so that acne can heal more optimally.
Of course, this acne treatment is not for life. You can stop some of these acne treatments after the zits and scars are resolved properly. However, specifically for skin care products, such as cleansing soap, moisturizers, sunscreens, and several other products, you need to use it regularly even though your acne has healed. The goal is to maintain the health of your skin, and prevent pimples from reappearing. The doctor who gives you the treatment of acne, with its competence and experience, must have carefully considered the good or bad treatment for you, including its safety for long-term use. A wise doctor will only provide a treatment if it is felt that the benefits generated indeed exceed the potential risks.
In addition to undergoing a doctor's treatment, treating acne and scars should also be balanced with the following steps:
Always keep your skin clean, moist and not in contact with substances that are prone to trigger inflammation
Do not touch the skin with dirty hands, especially nails that have not been cut
Be diligent in bathing and washing your face with cleansing soap that doctors recommend
After bathing and washing your face, dry your skin with a clean washcloth, just gently pat it, don't rub it too much
Before activity, always use a moisturizer and sunblock
Don't overuse cosmetics, make sure that the cosmetics you use don't expire and match your skin type, clean your cosmetics every time you sleep
Do not squeeze or slough off pimples and scars by force
Control your emotions well, multiply meditation and relaxation so that the mind is calmer
Drink plenty of water, eat fruits and vegetables
Don't overeat eating oily, coconuty and preserved foods
Go to bed early and regularly
Do not over-do activities under the hot sun, especially in a polluted environment
Do not carelessly choose skin care products, including those formulated with anti-acne, without first consulting a doctor
Check with your doctor or dermatologist if the acne and scars have not improved with the above efforts
Hope this helps ...
