This might not be the first time reading about acne, but if so it might be probably that this skin condition has come upon you as well. let me give you a quick education on this skin condition that is more than skin deep as it affects not only your physical outlook, but even attacks your s elf esteem, self confidence and the quality of life.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting at least 85% of adolescents and young adults and in some cases adults and infants. Although it is, in most cases, treated with the help of specific medicines, there are situations in which acne can leave deep marks on the skin. Scars and dark spots are the most frequent marks which can remain on the skin once the acne has been treated. For those who had to cope with acne, the signs are more bearable, but yet nobody likes to have such signs on their faces.
If you have been one of those unlucky persons who had to deal with acne and are now faced with the dark spots, there are some great news: these dark spots can be treated, so that your skin will remain clean, radiant and glowing just like that of a newborn baby.
There are many approaches towards acne that has been used and are effective and are not 100% natural though much safer. A few are included below:
Use of cortisone cream.
This is used to reduce inflammation and promote healing. It is a strong anti-inflammatory chemical. There are many different types of cortisone. Depending on the severity of the scarring, you can buy over-the-counter products for light scarring but might need to be prescribed one by the doctor for heavy scarring.
These are made from Vitamin A and are good for treating skin discoloration and acne scars. These can be bought over the counter or prescribed for stronger dosages. Costly though they are effective in more fast results within a short space of time. Since these are affected by the UV light, application is only during night for more effective results
There are many skin lightening products that can be purchased over the counter at very reasonable prices. However you need to be very cautious in this area as there are many illegal products out there and some can even harm your skin. Avoid products that contain hydroquinone which is has been labeled to be carcinogenic. Products to consider will contain Vitamin C, kojic acid, mulberry extract and other natural ingredients. These have minimal or no side effects especially skin irritation
Salicylic acid is a strong exfoliate and effective in bringing deep pigmented skin to the surface which fades and later clears with time. Parallel to it can be the use of glycolic acid which has also similar effects.
But maybe you are like me and you prefer to do it naturally, but still obtain the same results using home-made bleaching products from fruits and food. Use milk honey, carrots or papaya and many more for a spotless skin in a matter of weeks.
Just knowing these fruits or different foods is not the solution, however how to mix these and create solutions that will guarantee you of results within weeks is what you need to know.
