STRESS BREAKOUTS : How to prevent and treat!

Stress Breakouts: How to prevent and treat!
By: Spa de Soleil

  

Breakouts seem to always come at the worse possible time: before an interview, going on a big date, or the morning of your senior yearbook pictures. It may seem these little annoyances are trying to make your life harder on purpose, but your stress can actually be the cause of many of your breakouts. Here is a list of ways you can treat and prevent breakouts do to stress.

1. Stop touching your face
Don’t pick or squeeze pimples, this can make them more inflamed and cause scarring. Your hands collect germs and bacteria on a daily basis that will transfer to your face when you touch it, washing your hands before contact with your face is recommended.

3. Easy on the foundation
Makeup used to cover breakouts can clog pores and cause more pimples and blemishes. Try using a lightweight tinted moisturizer or a foundation with acne fighting properties like salicylic acid.

4. Identify your bacteria housing items
Items we use on a regular basis are one of the main holders of bacteria which can cause acne. It is important to clean these items regularly to avoid breakouts. Here is a list of the most common.

               –Telephone/cell phone : Notice a spot on your cell phone from your face after using it? Even if you wipe it off, the bacteria still lingers, and sticks back on your face when you use it again. You can use an alcohol swab to wipe off residue and bacteria.

              –Pillow Case : During the night, your pillowcase can become filled with bacteria and oil from the hair, skin and mucus membranes of the mouth and nose. Washing or changing your pillows case every week is recommended.

               –Makeup brushes/sponges: Like the phone and pillow case, your makeup brushes are favorite homes to bacteria. Washing your tools with antibacterial soap regularly can help avoid breakouts.

5. Reduce stress –The most obvious way to avoid acne due to stress is to reduce the stress in your life. Your bodies defense systems weaken, when stressed, making it less able to fight off acne causing bacteria. By reducing stress you are minimizing your chances to have breakouts. Here is a list of ways you can reduce stress.

                –Exercise regularly – Exercise helps relieve tension and is beneficial for overall healthy living. It releases endorphins which helps creates a more happy, healthy, stress free attitude.

               –Engage in stress relieving activities – Take a calming bubble bath, stretch before bed, drink green tea, watch a funny movie . Light some lavender or scented candles, dim the lights and lie down to relax.

6. Adopt an acne care facial regimen :
Cleansers, toners and moisturizers containing ingredients like Benzoyl peroxide kill bacteria causing inflammation.

All About Pores

All about Pores
By Spa de Soleil
                                  
A pore is any opening on the skin’s surface. These openings are how your skin releases oils, perspiration and toxins from the body through the sebaceous glands. Pores can easy become clogged by dead cells and debris if not cleansed regularly. The clinical name for a clogged pore is “come-done”.
Enlarged Pores
Our body creates thousands of new cells every 28 days, replacing your old cells with fresh new ones.  This is known as “Cell Turnover”.  Sometimes, your cells cannot remove the dead cells in time before the new cells come, thus, creating blockage to the pores. After the pore is clogged, a build up of sebum under the skin is the result. Clogged pores can be caused by inherited genes, hormonal changes (puberty or menopause), or environmental stress such as heat that cause the body to create more oil than normal. This creates enlarged more visible pores.
Symptoms of clogged pores include: • Blackheads : partially clogged pores
• Whiteheads : completely clogged pores
• Pimples : red bumps and inflammation of the pores and on the skin.
Ways to minimize pores We cannot control the size of the pores we were born with, but we can minimize the appearance of them temporarily. Not cleansing pores on a regular basis can cause them to appear larger than they really are, and can lead to blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. In order to achieve the maximum results and a healthy looking glow, you need to remove the dead cells from your skin. An exfoliant with soft beads can effectively remove the dead cells and impurities without causing harm to the new cells. Exfoliating should be done 2 – 3 times a week after removing makeup and gentle cleansing.
Other pore minimizing tips:
pat a cold wash cloth, or cold compress on face on hot days
Use a face toner daily (after cleansing)
Avoid picking and squeezing pimples and blackheads as this can stretch the pores
Drink water (add 1/2 tablespoon Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar to a glass of  water a couple of times a day, great for your skin)
Use clay face masks (clay has properties know to tighten skin)
See a skin care specialist regularly


Once your pores are clear of debris, you will be amazed at how much healthier and brighter your skin will look. Your skin will be smooth, soft, and radiant.

Hyper pigmentation : Everything you need to know

    
What is Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is defined as the increase in the natural color of the skin. Melanin, is a brown pigment created by certain cells in your skin, it is responsible for skin color. Melanin production is stimulated by a hormone called “melanocyte stimulating hormone”. Hyperpigmentation is the excess of melanin in certain areas of your skin.
What causes it?
Darkened areas of the skin occur as a result of many different reasons.
* Sunlight : Tanning when the skin is sensitive to sunlight, or prolonged exposure without protection can create uneven skin tone, freckles and sun spots.
* Medications: Birth control pills, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, and pain relievers, among others are common drugs responsible for hyperpigmentation.
* Hormones: Melasma (dark pigmentation of the skin) also called “the mask of pregnancy”,  is marked by brown to gray-brown patches on the face that are caused by the female hormone estrogen,  typically because of hormonal changes do to pregnancy.  
* Other reasons: Birth defects, genetics (it is hereditary), scarring, vitamin and nutritional deficiencies are also among causes.
Treatment Options
The first step is to speak with a qualified specialist or dermatologist to determine the cause of your Hyperpigmentation. Once you know more about it, you and your doctor can decide on the best way to treat it.
Treatment options include :
  • Intense Pulsed Light – IPL is a type of laser that leaves no scars, can sometimes heal freckles or sun spots without using peels or hydroquinone creams.
  • Creams – These bleaching creams help lighten the specific areas. You can purchase or for severe cases a doctor prescribe one.
  • Hydroxy Acid Peels They increase cell renewal rate to allow fresh new cells to surface.
  • Monthly Facials   It is important to have monthly facials to make sure your skin is free from impurities and dead skin that can build up and perpetuate the dark areas. If you are receiving strong treatments regularly, facials can be done every 2 months or as directed by your aesthetician.
  • Laser resurfacing, Microdermabrasion – These treatments remove and evaporate the first few layers of skin to leave healthy, more evenly toned skin. Be cautious, scarring can be left behind on your skin which can worsen the situation.
Prevention
Sunlight is the leading cause of dark spots on the skin, therefore shade and sunscreens are very important in avoiding Hyperpigmentation.
Home remedies: There are many home remedies one can use to treat Hyperpigmentation, but be aware that you may not get results you are hoping for and consistency to treatment is necessary to see any results.
          Potatoes : have been known to help the with uneven skin tone because of the starch it contains. Cut the potato into slices and rub it in circular motions on the problem areas. Allow slices to rest on face for 10 to 20 min.
          Citrus/ Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is very acidic, and contains high levels of vitamin C, which can increase the speed of cell turnover. This can help the skin grown new skin cells to replace the discolored areas. Spraying lemon juice on your face or applying with a cotton ball are both affective.
