Top Eight Skin Care Products

For the beauty-product addict there are loads of items that are a must. But in reality there are eight top products that you need to have if you want to have silky skin.

On the market there are a number of possibilities to take care of your skin. One of the most important products you need to have is a facial wash. They come in different forms but the most common type is soap. Basically what they do is remove the dirt, grease and makeup from your skin. They also give your skin a fresh feeling. Use them daily.

If you believe that soaps are not the right product for you because they are too astringent for your skin, cleansing gels are another good alternative. They not only clean away the grime but also leave the moisture in your skin. They are also good for preventing pimples and spots.

Then there are the cream cleansers which are ideal for dry skins. Since their texture is really soft, they help to remove makeup easily.

After cleaning you skin, you should use a toner. Toners provide the much-desired refreshing effect on your skin. They are a good option for people with oily skin because they are based on alcohol. If you have a more sensitive skin, try not to use toners with an alcohol base. Instead you should go for another kind such as the demineralized Dead Sea toner.

The next step in taking care of your skin is to apply a moisturizer. They enhance the natural moisture of your skin and make it look softer. Before buying one, take into account your skin type and try to get a moisturizer that also includes a UV filter.

Another product you should have is a face mask. They provide deep cleaning of your skin and have a tightening effect. To remove dead skin cells, use facial scrubs. They are really useful for removing the dead skin cells and letting the new skin cells show.

Let’s not forget about the eyes. The thinnest skin on our body is the skin under our eyes. That’s one of the reasons why we need to use eye creams and gels. They help to get rid of dark circles and puffiness.Night creams should also be on the list. They work while you sleep and provide great results.

Treating Dark Spots Caused By Acne

Teenagers go through a lot on their way to becoming adults. One of the most uncomfortable and embarrassing problems they face is acne.

They have to put up with a lot of laughing when they have skin problems, so most of them start an acne treatment as soon as they can. But what happens once the acne is gone? Well, in general, as acne is treated, most of the spots are gone, but it is also true that if a teen had a serious acne condition, he/she may have scars and black spots once the treatment is finished.

To treat black spots there are a number of products that can be used.

Dark spots- game over:

There are many bleaching creams available on the market. They generally have hydroquinone, kojic acid, beta-carotene and licorice acid, and dermatologists agree that they have wonderful effects when combined with other active ingredients such as glycolic acid.

Since most of these creams contain acids, they work by suppressing the action of the enzyme that is in charge of releasing melanin, while also impeding the production of more melanin. This makes black spots disappear and makes the skin look much better.

Before purchasing a bleaching cream, make sure you check with a dermatologist to see which is the best option for you. Choosing the right cream depends on your skin type and your tolerance for the ingredients in them.

Another good ally in the war against black spots is exfoliation. This should be done by a professional because exfoliators work with acids such as lactic acid, glycolic acid and salicylic acid. Don’t worry if you start to peel. That is a natural consequence of exfoliation with acids. As you peel, you’ll be able to see how the new layers of healthy skin are coming out. You won’t see immediate results, but over the weeks you will see how the dark spots start to vanish.

There are some alternatives for you to use to exfoliate at home. These, of course, do not contain acids but use natural ingredients. Handmade bleaching creams should contain fruits and food to make your skin look a lot better. Use lemon, honey, milk and even carrots to improve the aspect of your skin.

Acne is the result of skin malfunctioning. Acne can be caused due to many reasons.

Hormonal changes in teenagers and pregnant women lead to acne problem. This could be mild to severe.

Unhealthy food habits can also cause acne by producing toxins in the blood and deposits of harmful chemicals in the body. Caffeine, alcohol and smoking can lead to unhealthy body condition and aggravate the acne problem. Excessive oil and sebum on skin help the bacteria to flourish and can lead to severe acne trouble.

Sometime the acne disappears with age and as the hormones reach the normal level. In some cases a mild treatment and use of natural ingredients can cure acne.

Acne treatment is important to obtain a clean and smooth skin. Acne is a skin condition and can be very severe at times. For an acute problem of acne, many procedures are available.

It is important to know your skin type before choosing a treatment. Acne can be characterized by deep cyst, scars and inflammation.

Treatments for acne:

Some people form cysts, a severe stage of acne. To get rid of the cysts and painful acne, an acne surgery known as drainage and surgical excision can be performed. It should be performed by a trained professional. People who suffer from cystic acne try to squeeze or pick the acne in order to eradicate it. This can lead to infection and cause scars.

Inflammation in cystic acne can cause rupture of acne and scars. To treat inflammation and burning sensation in the scars, an injection of diluted corticosteroid is infused into the cysts. This reduces the itch and heals the ruptured acne area.

Another effective treatment for severe acne problem is isotretinoin. This is used to treat acute acne type which cannot be treated by simple medication. This is a synthetic retinoid. Retinoid is a form of vitamin A and is available in many anti-aging creams and lotions.

Isotretinoin comes in the form of a pill or capsule. Consult the doctor for precise dosage. This is touted to be the most effective treatment available for severe acne.

Along with eradicating acne this pill controls other reasons of acne aggravation such as excess oil production, clogged skin pores and inflammation or itching. Sometimes one course of isotretinoin works well for many years in tackling the acne production.
