Treating and Preventing Acne – Keeping Your Skin Blemish Free

There is  no rhyme or reason for acne, the best anyone can do is prevent, treat and get it under control.  Acne effects over 60 million Americans, and most triggers are either stress, hormonal, diet, or hereditary related.

On a personal side I suffer from adult acne and finding products that help prevent and correct acne are part of my life’s mission.

Acne effects everyone from women, men and teenagers alike.  Acne develops when the hair follicles become infected or inflamed.  Not cleansing properly or exfoliating can cause dead skin cells or bacteria to build.  This causes spillage of oil and debris to penetrate the skin, resulting in either noninflammatory or inflammatory acne.

Acne is an irritated skin rash that appears on the face, back or chest areas often leaving people mortified and at a loss.

June is  Acne Awareness month and we are going to share some of the best skincare and bodycare products available to help keep your acne under control.

SkinCeuticals Blemish+Age Defense – A targeted oil-free approach to treating adult acne and the signs of premature aging.   This new product is a targeted, oil-free approach to treating adult acne and signs of aging, this 1st-to-market acid blend combines 2% dioic acid with an alpha- and beta-hydroxy acid formulation designed to prevent acne, minimize hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Specifically created for the concerns of the acne-prone adult, it goes beyond treating imperfections to additionally address signs of aging. Salicylic acid and LHA combat blemishes; glycolic and citric acids treat fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness; and dioic acid fights acne, reduces excess sebum production, and prevents hyperpigmentation that can cause skin to appear prematurely aged. This highly effective, efficient treatment is ideal for acne-prone, aging skin. $78 @skinceuticals
