Take Action On Acne & Ageing
Adult acne is on the increase with an estimated 5% of adult women being affected at some point in their lives. The common cause of acne is thought to be hormonal imbalance.
However, part of this rise could be put down to the rise in stress levels; many women are juggling more and more in their lives and as a result of stress our body releases a hormone called Cortisol. Cortisol depresses the immune system and gives propinibacterium acne the chance to thrive.
We can’t always relax and put our feet up to reduce our stress levels, so we need our skin care to work extra hard – and take care of those wrinkles too. That’s where cosmeceuticals can help!
Cosmeceuticals aren’t just for ageing skin, they can also help with acne, pigmentation problems, rosacea, dark circles and even sparse eyelashes, so pretty much anyone is a candidate, but you do need to make sure you’re using the right products for your skin type, so get a professional opinion before starting a programme.
Acne scars are stubborn reminders of past breakouts and blemishes that affect millions of people throughout the UK.
Skin expert, Dr Thevendra, has explained that with the right treatment, clearer skin is possible for everyone.
“Even with a conscientious effort and careful treatment, acne scars can still occur with varying types,” he said.
“Scars generally form two different ways; either they are caused by a loss of tissue, which is commonly referred to as atrophic scars, or they are caused by an excess of tissue, which is commonly referred to as hypertrophic scars.”
