Introduction: Banish Acne Once and For All!

In my years at Wellaholic and before, I’ve seen how acne affects people. It’s more than skin deep. It touches confidence and self-image. I’ve worked closely with clients and experts to find what truly works. In this field, one size does not fit all.

Each person’s skin tells a different story. I’ve gathered proven techniques that tackle acne at its root. These methods are backed by science and real results.

In the article below, I’ll share these techniques. They are simple yet powerful. They aim to not just clear the skin but also to keep it healthy and vibrant.

Acne scars are markings that are left behind on the skin after an acne breakout. There are many different types of acne scars, and not all of them can be treated with the same method

What are the Typical Causes of Acne and Pimples?

In my years at Wellaholic, I’ve met many clients battling acne and pimples. This issue isn’t just about skin; it’s deeply personal and can really affect someone’s confidence. Let’s talk about what causes these unwelcome guests.

First, hormones play a big part. Changes during puberty, menstrual cycles, or pregnancy can make the skin oilier, setting the stage for acne. It’s something many of us face at some point in our lives.

Then, there’s genetics. If your family has a history of acne, chances are you might too. It’s like inheriting your mom’s eyes or your dad’s smile, but less fun.

Bacteria also play a role. Our skin is home to countless bacteria, and while most are harmless, they can cause trouble when pores get clogged with oil and dead skin cells.

Diet might influence acne too. Though it’s a bit of a gray area, eating lots of processed foods and sugar could make things worse.

Medications are another factor. Some, like corticosteroids, list acne as a side effect.

Lastly, stress can throw your hormones off balance and lead to breakouts. It shows how closely linked our skin health is to our overall well-being.

Each person’s skin is unique, meaning that what causes acne for one person may not have the same effect on another. You can refer to the table below for the causes of acne and how they can be treated:

Causes of AcneTreatment Options
Hormonal changesBirth control pills, hormone therapy, topical retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid
GeneticsTopical retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, antibiotics
BacteriaTopical and oral antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, retinoids, azelaic acid
DietEating a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, avoiding processed foods and sugar
MedicationsSwitching to a different medication or adjusting dosage, topical treatments
StressStress management techniques such as meditation, exercise, and therapy, topical and oral medications

What are the Different Types of Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that can manifest in different forms. The different types of acne include:

  1. Whiteheads: Small, white bumps that form when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells.
  2. Blackheads: Small, dark bumps that form when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, and the clog is exposed to air.
  3. Papules: Small, raised bumps that are typically pink or red and are caused by inflammation of the skin.
  4. Pustules: Similar to papules, but with a white or yellow centre that contains pus.
  5. Nodules: Large, painful, solid bumps that form deep within the skin and can last for weeks or months.
  6. Cysts: Similar to nodules, but filled with pus and typically more painful.

It’s important to note that some people may experience a combination of different types of acne.

The first step of any cleansing routine should be to double cleanse with both an oil-based cleanser and a water-based cleanser

Suggested Skincare Routine for Acne-Prone Skin

If you’re dealing with acne-prone skin, finding the right balance in your skincare routine is key. Here’s a routine I’ve found works well:

Start with a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser twice a day. This keeps your skin clean without over-drying it. Then, use a toner. It helps balance the skin’s pH and gets rid of any leftover dirt.

For breakouts, a spot treatment can target just those areas without affecting the rest of your skin. Don’t skip moisturizing. Even oily skin needs hydration. Choose a light, oil-free moisturizer. And protect your skin every morning with SPF 30 sunscreen to guard against UV damage.

You might also add exfoliation and masks a couple of times a week for deep cleaning and nourishment. Remember, consistency is crucial. Give it time to work. And if acne keeps being a problem, seeing a dermatologist is a wise step.

Suggested Diet & Lifestyle Changes for Acne-Prone Skin

In addition to a good skincare routine, certain diet and lifestyle changes can also help improve acne-prone skin. Here are some suggestions:

Eat a balanced diet– Incorporate plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein into your diet.
– Avoid processed and sugary foods, which can cause inflammation in the body and exacerbate acne
Stay hydrated– Drink plenty of water throughout the day
– Keep your skin hydrated and flush out toxins
Manage stress– Stress can trigger acne breakouts
– Find ways to manage stress such as exercise, meditation, or deep breathing
Get enough sleep– Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night
– To allow your skin to repair and regenerate
Avoid touching your facYour hands can carry bacteria and oil that can exacerbate acne
– Avoid touching your face throughout the day
Use non-comedogenic productsChoose skincare and makeup products that are labeled as non-comedogenic to avoid clogging pores.
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption– Both smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can contribute to inflammation and worsen acne
Suggested Diet and Lifestyle Changes to Help Improve Acne-Prone Skin
Wellaholic provides our popular Elight Facial Collagen Boost, a six-step technology facial which effectively banishes your pimple and acne problems using the appropriate energy rays to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria.

Suggested Facial Treatments for Acne-Prone Skin

If you have acne-prone skin, it’s important to choose facial treatments that are specifically designed to address your skin concerns. Here are some suggested facial treatments for acne-prone skin:

  1. Chemical Peels: Chemical peels use acids to exfoliate the skin and reduce acne. They can also help fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
  2. Microdermabrasion: This treatment uses a special device to exfoliate the skin and unclog pores. It can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
  3. LED Light Therapy: LED light therapy uses different coloured lights to target specific skin concerns, such as inflammation and acne-causing bacteria.
  4. Extraction Facial: This facial involves manual extraction of blackheads and whiteheads. It’s important to have this treatment done by a licensed esthetician to avoid damaging the skin.
  5. Oxygen Facial: This facial involves infusing oxygen and nutrients into the skin to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
  6. Laser Therapy: Laser therapy can be used to reduce acne and acne scars. It works by targeting the bacteria that causes acne and promoting collagen production.

Wellaholic offers Elight Monthly Facials, which include microdermabrasion, LED light therapy as well as extraction facials.
