Acne is a common skin condition that affects the majority of people at some point in their life. It is most commonly linked to the changes in hormone levels during puberty, although the condition can start at any age. It causes spots, oily and irritated skin that is painful to touch.
Acne usually affects the face, and can also develop of the back and chest. It can look unsightly and cause self-confidence issues. Thankfully, there are treatments available to help combat the issue. In this article we will take you through one of the most effective all natural acne treatments.
What to do if you have acne?
Firstly, don’t panic! As we have already said, this is a common skin condition that affects the majority of people at some point in their youth. There are a number of self-help techniques you can use to help reduce the appearance of redness and spots:
- Wash the affected area with mild soap and lukewarm water twice a day. Avoid very hot or cold water as this can make it worse.
- As tempting as it is, do not squeeze blackheads or spots – this will irritate the skin and could cause permanent scarring.
- Avoid wearing too much makeup and cosmetics, try using water-based products that are non-comedogenic (products that are less likely to block to pores in your skin).
If your acne is too severe or you feel these self-help treatments aren’t working, then it is time to try an all natural treatment programme. For the best results, a combination treatment plan like the Intense Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation and Marine Boost Treatment is recommended as it effectively targets acne whilst also soothing and repairing the skin.
What is Intense Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photo-rejuvenation is a non-invasive skin treating procedure that has literally revolutionised the skin treatment industry. Its bright and intense light, of a specific wavelength, is emitted onto the affected parts of the skin. This enhances the production of collagen and effectively dries out the acne, reducing the appearance of spots and redness.
It is highly recommended that a trained professional carries out the procedure. So the advice is always, use a professional skin treatment clinic.
What are Marine Boost Treatments?
Marine Boost Treatments are natural, safe and effective skin rejuvenation alternatives to traditional chemical peels and glycolic peels. It uses essential marine and botanical actives, found in algae and botanical herbs, that work with the skin to rejuvenate. The exact marine and botanical actives used will depend on your type of skin and the severity of the acne. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes and your skin may feel prickly and warm directly after the treatment. It may also look a little pink and flushed. This usually subsides in a few hours.
You will be given a homecare pack to use for the following 5 days. This will consist of specific marine and botanical products, cleansing, healing and protecting products from ZAHEDA® Skincare range. If you have to wear foundation then mineral powder foundation is recommended but eye make-up and lipstick can be worn immediately. Approximately 4 days after the treatment you may see your skin peeling. A couple of days later your new skin will appear fresh and glowing. You will see optimum results as you complete your treatment course.
Unlike many other exfoliation methods, Marine Boost Treatments do not contain any chemical substances or synthetic abrasives that can cause burning and irritation, and the results are very similar to the results of chemical or glycolic peels.
When combining IPL Photo-rejuvenation with Marine Boost Treatments to combat acne, the results are incredible. The skin appears soft and refreshed, with minimal irritation and spots. Treatments plans usually last around 4-6 weeks, and although you may start seeing results a week after the first treatment, it can take up to 3 months to see the full effect of the treatments.
