Clogged Pores – What do I do?

Help I have clogged pores, what do I do?

This is a common question that I hear from every client with #acne. What is the best way to deal with blackheads and whiteheads?

First we must control the dead-cell accumulation and clear the follicle out. It is important that we do this together, this treatment requires at home care and an acne control facial.

Extractions are a necessary process in your treatment as well as salicylic, AHAS and enzymes in the form of peels. These help to loosen the dead cells on the skin’s surface which ease the extraction process.  The use of these and other solutions help to liquefy the solid oil accumulations in the pores and break up the masses thus improving the extraction process.

At home care is carefully monitored to make sure you are not excessively over drying your skin. There is a fine balance to finding the right products to use and many times we alternate them with active/resting products. Daily home care is the real key to  acne management and the application of mild AHAS, BHAS. Certain serums that I recommend also calm the skin and reduce the bacteria load.

Many times you will find that the clogged pores start loosening up and the count of whiteheads and blackheads is reduced. However, this is the time to continue treatment for long term success.

How do I take care of my dry winter skin

Many factors contribute to dry skin in the Winter.

1) Be sure to use tepid water. It is so easy to turn the heat up, but it causes more drying of the skin than any single thing.

2) Exposure to cold and wind. Be sure to wear a good moisturizer and sunscreen. Shield your skin as much as possible with clothing.

3) Eat a diet rich in EFA like salmon or fish oils.

4) Drink more water. It is hard to drink enough water in the winter so try tepid water.

5) Don’t use irritating products on the skin and be sure your facial scrub is a fine jojoba bead in a moisturizing complex.

Apply moisturizer at least twice per day, avoid heavily foaming cleansers and soap and cut down on fragranced products. Fragrance is a well know skin irritant. Hyaluronic Acid is one of my most favorite ingredients to add moisture to very dry skin.

What is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a serious, inflammatory, non-communicable disease, affecting more than 125 million people all over the world. People with psoriasis are known to carry an increased risk of developing severe co-morbid conditions such as diabetes and psoriatic arthritis, as well as depression and even suicidal ideation. A number of studies also show that psoriasis is associated with greater prevalence of hypertension, one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
