Dealing with acne is a nightmare for every woman, and some men as well. If you care about your appearance you will invest a significant amount of time in your skincare routine, as well as your makeup products. For some people, this problem with acne can begin even earlier, and some can experience teenage acne. Are you having these breakouts or someone very close and dear to you is? Either way, it is, this article will help you combat and focus on dealing with breakouts the right way. If you wish to learn a thing or two more about teenage acne and how to combat them, keep on reading!

Why Do We Have Acne In The First Place?

Acne can be a hereditary skin condition that you may end up with because of your parents. Most often, this skin condition happens because you are someone who has oily skin and clogged pores that cannot breathe. Acne also happens when you are eating unhealthy and greasy food items, and when you forget to take off your makeup at night.

What Causes Teenage Acne?

Did you know that over 85% of teenagers have acne of some sort? Some can experience blackheads, whiteheads, and others just inflamed acne. When you hit puberty you will experience an increase in your hormones that are called androgens. When there is too much sebum in your pores you will produce unwanted oils and you will end up with pimples.

You can also experience cysts inside of your pores, which is why some teens turn to birth control pills to calm down this inflammation. Heavy sweating as well as workouts can also contribute to acne, especially over your body.

What Is The Treatment For Acne?

Treatments will vary from person to person, but teenagers will have a wide range of options since their skin is capable of handling different substances. In most cases, the best ingredients and treatments are:

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Lactic or glycolic acid
  • Retinoids
  • Specialized skincare treatments
  • Acne patches
  • Antibiotics

How Your Skincare Routine Should Look Like If You Have Acne: Top 5 Steps

1. Wash Your Face With The Right Product

Washing your skin morning and night is necessary for every woman, no matter your skin type. However, women who have oily skin should wash their face with some amazing, high-quality, as well as nourishing face washes. Grab a product that has a mattifying property, and which is filled with mint since it can clear your skin and calm down your oils. 

Wash with lukewarm water and rinse out the product to get all the debris out. 

2. Use Clay Masks

Clay masks are some of the best masks for women who have oily and acne-prone skin. Is your skin often inflamed and red? If so, invest in your clay mask and use ingredients such as honey, oatmeal, as well as black clay or charcoal to get perfect results!

Some of these ingredients are moisturizing and nourishing, while others are known for their deep cleansing properties. 

Apply a clay mask every 5-7 days and let them clean out your pores thoroughly.

3. Moisturize

Moisturize your skin, always! Even though your skin is quite oily, it still needs to be moisturized. You should also use aloe vera as its main ingredient since it is calming and nourishing, as well as moisturizing for acne-prone skin. Also, make sure to apply a heavier cream at night, and something lightweight and water-based early in the morning.

When it comes to teenage skin, it is best to use natural ingredients and products that are free of sulfates and parabens. Also, avoid alcohol or fragrance since these can be drying as well as irritating on top of your skin.

4. Pat Dry Your Skin And Blot It

Always pat dry your skin after just cleansing it with a clean towel. Make sure to do tapping instead of wiping or rubbing motions since these can tug your skin, cause premature aging, as well as irritate your breakouts.

Also, aside from slow tapping motions, we recommend using a blotting paper throughout the day.

Reach for this item since it will keep your texture matte, and your pores at bay. Simply dab it as you’d dab your powder and calm down any excess shine.

5. Get a Facial

Last, but not least, we believe that finding the perfect facial treatment is more than crucial as well as mandatory for your acne-prone skin.

If you’re impatient and you need results overnight, make sure to let professionals take care of you. Skincare specialists as well as dermatologists will determine what is the right treatment for your skin type. Find your ideal facial right here at Dr.Glow Getter and combat acne the right way, and for good!

Ready To Experience Flawless Skin?

Dear teens, are you ready to say bye-bye to acne? A lot of women will experience acne throughout their lifetime. If you’re someone who is struggling at the moment, make sure to stay calm, positive & only follow our simple 5 tips and tricks which will do wonders, we promise!

class="post-2336 post type-post status-publish format-standard has-post-thumbnail hentry category-skin-care tag-acne tag-birth-and-acne tag-birth-control tag-fix-acne tag-pill-acne tag-pills"NULL

Acne is the most common skin complication which can occur and happen to both men and women. Usually, we go through our acne-period during our teenage years since this is when our hormones go crazy. This happens when our androgen hormones activate and over-produce on their own. If you’re dealing with unbearable acne and you’ve tried several different face products, cleansers, and skincare treatments with your dermatologist, your next big step may be incorporating birth control into your everyday routine. Here’s all that you should know about this.

Why Did My Acne Flare Up? How Does It All Start?

When our sebaceous glands overproduce oils, we tend to break out. This can also happen if your pores are clogged or filled with dirt, makeup residue, or pollution. Let’s not forget to mention that the use of some makeup or skincare products can irritate your skin and cause it to break out. This also applies if you’re using some expired products (which you should always avoid and double-check).

For some women, luckily, birth control pills can decrease the secretion of oil from your glands. This is why this pill can even out the breakouts (in case you are dealing with hormonal disbalance). If you’re dealing with some topical breakouts, a pill won’t make a difference and it won’t calm down your breakouts. In case you are not dealing with hormonal acne or pimples, you should stay away from the pill.

How Does Birth Control Work?

The birth control pill has synthetic hormones that will prevent the sperm from fertilizing an egg that is in the ovaries. Some pills contain estrogen and progesterone which will change the way your body functions, and the way you produce oils. Women drink these pills orally every day along with a glass of water. Some women use the pill only as a form of contraception and if they don’t want to have kids, while others use them only for their skin. However, it is crucial to talk with your dermatologist and your gynecologist before you make this big step, and before you start using contraception.

Birth Control & Acne

If you go on a pill that contains both estrogen and progestin, you should be able to fight off acne. Each pill has its own variation of hormones, but every kind still needs to be prescribed for acne by your doctor. According to some researchers, birth control can calm down non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne, so it can be used at the early stages of your flare-up.

Also you can check our list of things people with acne should avoid.

What Are The Side Effects When It Comes To The Birth Control Pills?

Unfortunately, there are several different side effects when it comes to contraceptive pills. The most common ones are:

  • Vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain as well as weight loss (can vary from person to person) 
  • Changes in your period (consistency, smell, cycle, etc)
  • Headaches
  • Fainting

Also, birth control pills are usually not advised if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Heart disease or blood clots
  • Hypertensions
  • History of cancer (especially breast cancer)
  • Any form of liver disease or diabetes
  • If you smoke and you are older than 30 years
  • You are pregnant or you are breastfeeding
  • You are obese or you are physically immobilized

What Are The Different Types Of Birth Control?

The FDA has approved some of the birth control in the U.S, and those are:

Ortho Tri-Cyclen uses estrogen and combines norgestimate. This is a synthetic and handmade form of progesterone. This form of a pill is available in four different doses.

Estrostep uses estrogen and is combined with a progestin called norethindrone. There are four different types of pills available with different kinds of estrogen.

YAZ uses estrogen and it combines a man-made form of progestin. The FDA claims that similar pills can increase the risk of blood clots when compared to other pills.

How To Treat Mild Or Severe Acne?

Women who are at least 14 years old can cure their acne. It is important that you have already gotten your period, and that you are consulting your doctor regarding contraception. Your doctor will prescribe you birth control for the entire month. Once you start the process you might need to continue using the pill for 3-4 months. 

However, heads up since an initial flare-up is possible if this is your first time taking birth control pills. Your doctor may also prescribe some other forms of acne treatment, since combining different products may give you the best outcome. They can prescribe medications, antibiotics, as well as some topical products for clearing off the skin. 

Intrigued On Going On The Pill?

Did you know that over 60% of women in the U.S. use birth control pills? This study was done mostly on women who were being sexually active. However, nowadays more & more women are using this form of contraception, and it isn’t as big of a taboo as it used to be before. If you’ve tried out all of the other skincare options, such as treatments, products, and surgeries – would you be willing to give this one a try as your final resort? Let us know! We are committed to helping people who suffer from skin issues, or you can book your consultation/treatment directly with us.

During the global pandemic people worldwide had to adjust their lifestyle and their way of living.

Coronavirus has had an impact on everything (and everyone) which did result in some changes. The most common one was wearing a face mask, and people had to adapt to this new rule. If you wish to know a bit more about the pros & cons of wearing a face mask, keep on reading, and find your answers down below!

What you should know about wearing face masks: Top 6 facts

1. Don’t Re-wear The Same Mask

You shouldn’t wear the same mask over and over again. Each mask is made with different fabrics, and you should always pay close attention to its materials. 

So, for instance, if you are wearing a disposable mask – make sure that you throw it away right after your first use and your first wear. Usually, disposable masks can last you for 24 hours.

On the other hand, you can wear fabric masks (that are made out of cotton or similar fabrics). These masks are machine-washable + you will enjoy them if you prefer vibrant masks, cool prints, as well as noticeable designs. You can even pair-along your outfit of the day with your colored mask!

2. Disposable Masks Are Better

If you can’t make your mind up and you are not too sure what mask to purchase, always go for the disposable kind! These masks are the best for your skin. In fact, a disposable mask is a lot more lightweight, not as harsh, and it won’t irritate your skin. Disposable masks are also way less maintenance and they won’t catch dirt, debris, or any external factors.

Just make sure you throw them away at the end of the day and make sure to have at least 2-3 extra masks at all times and on deck.

PS: Disposable masks are a bit pricier. However, they are worth it in the end due to their amazing protection.

3. Avoid Cheap Masks

You should avoid cheap and poorly made masks due to several reasons:

A) Some fabrics are a bit more high-maintenance than others

B) Cheap masks can irritate your skin

C) Cheap masks can also cause breakouts if not cleaned the right way

Also, cheaper masks won’t give you your needed level of protection, so play smart when making your purchase!

4. Do Not Wear Makeup

Wearing a lot of makeup and heavy layers are not necessary, nor recommended. In fact, your face mask covers the entire lower portion of your face. It protects your skin on its own, so there is no reason to wear a lot of foundation.

Also, your face makeup will only get dirty with makeup, which will make its cleaning & maintenance hard to do. 

Avoid heavy makeup when leaving the house, and only wear it in some extreme cases!

5. Clean Your Skin Once You Get Home

Clean & clear skin is healthy skin. This means that you should clean your skin with your trustworthy skincare products the moment you get home.

Use a mild cleanser and wash away the dirt. Your mask may clog your pores, which is why it is important and essential to clean them thoroughly! Always wash your face once you take off your face mask, your skin will thank you!

6. Invest In Your Skincare More Than You Ever Did Before

Lastly, it is very important to invest a lot of thought, care, love & money into your skincare products & application.

Nowadays and at this exact moment, your skin is more prone to breakouts than ever. This especially applies to women who have super sensitive skin, since some may get irritation from the mask due to its fabrics.

Apply your favorite serums, creams, as well as gels each night. Always apply light pressure and your skin will thank you in the end!

Also do not forget to book your skin consultation in case you are interested to know more in-depth about how to improve your skin and get the best results possible

class="post-2238 post type-post status-publish format-standard has-post-thumbnail hentry category-lash-extensions category-skin-care tag-appointment tag-beauty-salon tag-covid-19 tag-mask"NULL

Unfortunately, the entire world had to change its lifestyle & business policy due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Cafes, clubs, beauty salons as well as medical aesthetic spas worldwide, had to adapt to some new rules to function & operate at their ideal speed and preferred capacity.

So, do you wish to book an appointment sometime soon? Are you craving that flawless lashes, deep skin cleansing, or any facial? 

If so, make sure you follow certain rules, and you’ll be more than welcome in almost any spa!

Here’s what you should implement when booking your next spa-appointment!

Top 5 Rules That You Should Follow When Visiting Any Medical Aesthetic Spa

1. Stay Safe & Sanitized

Every person should behave and act accordingly. Make sure you pay close attention to your current rules, and always do as you are told by your government.

The best way to get to your appointment is with your vehicle, or on foot.

If you can’t do any of these, take a cab. However, stay sanitized during the entire trip.

You should wash your hands as frequently as possible, and also bring a small hand sanitizer with you.

Place this item in your bag and reach for it every couple of hours. A hand sanitizer will kill 99% of germs, so purchase it and carry it with you at all times.

2. Wear A Face Mask

You shouldn’t leave your home without a mask in the first place. This rule applies to most countries around the globe. It especially applies if you plan on visiting larger facilities, such as hospitals, salons, spas, museums, cinemas, etc. Make sure you also obey this rule if you plan on using public transportation.

What you should do is carry your mask with you and around your neck. Make sure you have it on once you arrive at the spa.

In most cases and places, you won’t be able to enter the spa without it.

If you forget to bring your face mask, don’t worry about it with us! Our staff will provide you with one at the entrance that you can wear at the spa and also bring with you back home.

3. Make Sure You Book Your Appointment

When arriving at a boutique make sure you book your appointment beforehand. You won’t be allowed to come in if you don’t have an appointment.

This means that every customer will have their own time & space at the spa.

You won’t be disturbed by others, and you won’t come in contact with other people.

This way, everyone will stay protected and will feel safe.

Just book your appointment 2-3 days in advance via a call, text message, or through our online form.

4. Always Be On Time

It is crucial to come to the spa on time. Do not be late and respect our timing & schedules.

Every client should respect our working hours. By doing so, no one will interfere in someone else’s appointment.

Try to arrive 5 minutes early, just so that you can get a heads up with any bathroom duties, as well as disinfection.

You should clean your hands and throw on a mask while making yourself comfy in your chair.

5. Do Not Bring Others With You To The Salon

Lastly, make sure that you come to the spa on your own.

Do not bring your kids, friends, or your spouse with you except if they have appointment as well.

People who do not have their appointments booked are not allowed at a boutique, and will not be able to come in.

We ask you kindly to wait out front or at a nearby cafe.

For the first time ever, ”the more, the merrier” is not our policy!

For everyone’s safety & comfort level, make sure that you come alone.

Have you ever had a chemical peel done before? Would you get one depending on your skin type or your skin concern? A chemical peel can improve your texture and will remove any smaller imperfections that you may have. It is usually a common go-to treatment for women who have mature skin, or who want to get rid of early signs of aging, as well as discoloration. If you want to renew your skin and let it breathe all over again, here’s why you should go for a chemical peel! 

Why And Where To Get A Chemical Peel? 

You can get a chemical peel done on your face (the most common go-to part of your body), but you can also do it on your neck and hands. When done correctly, you will experience: 

  • Smaller fine lines around the mouth area 
  • You will remove wrinkles that are caused by aging as well as sun damage 
  • You will treat mild scars 
  • Your age spots and freckles will come down 
  • Your skin will feel a lot smoother and will look softer 
  • You will sink in all of your beauty & makeup products a lot easier & quicker

What Are The Different Types Of Chemical Peels?

There are three different chemical peels that you can go for, and those are:

  • A light chemical peel – it is done over the outer layer of your skin (also known as epidermis). It is used to combat acne, uneven skin tones, as well as dryness. You can redo this treatment every 2-5 weeks, depending on your skin type, as well as your concern.
  • A medium chemical peel – this peel will remove dirt from the middle layer of your skin (dermis). It is used for wrinkles as well as acne scars and is repeated every 3-9 months, depending on your skin type. It is a harsher version than the light chemical peel, often done by older women.
  • A deep chemical peel – it will remove everything from the epidermis and a lower layer of the dermis. You can help out your deep wrinkles as well as scars in only one treatment! It is quite harsh and not something that you can redo, and one time only sounds just about right if you need results overnight!

Who Is Not A Good Candidate For The Treatment?

If you’ve been using any acne medication in the last 3-6 months, you are not the right candidate

You shouldn’t have a deep dark complexion 

Over hyperpigmentation is not recommended when you’re going under the treatment

You shouldn’t have severe outbreaks or cold sores

What To Expect During The Treatment?

Your expert will use a brush along with some gauze to apply the chemical peel on the tp of your skin. This peel will contain either glycolic acid or salicylic acid. As they proceed, your skin will lighten up. Some women can feel a slight stinging sensation. The whole process takes around 30 minutes to do. After they are done they will cleanse the skin and apply the right ointment on top. It does not hurt, but it can burn your skin (it is different for everyone).

What To Expect After The Treatment?

You can expect your skin to be a bit red and dry. Some women can also experience slightly irritated or sensitive skin. However, this symptom will all go away in 2 days, just use the right ointment that your doctor recommends.

You can also expect your skin to look a bit lighter after the treatment since it was treated with high chemicals. Some women can also experience slight crusts or blotches on top, it is pretty different for every lady.

As your skin is resting you should give it time to breathe. This means no makeup application for at least the following 2-3 day period! Try and use an SPF 30 (at least) during the next 7-14 days. Your skin will be sensitive, and it will demand additional protection. Don’t let the Sunburn you, nor cause severe irritation.

Ready For Chemical Peels?

Are you ready for a chemical peel? Figure out which one of three different kinds will suit you, and ask your dermatologist to customize it per your skin type and your skin concern! You can book your appointment and have a conversation with our skilled team right here

LED therapy is also known as the light eliminating diode therapy which is a must-have skincare treatment for so many different skin types and skin complications. It is a therapy where your skin gets to experience the effects of blue and red wavelengths in order to reduce sebum production and to get rid of any and every annoying acne. Are you intrigued in doing this skincare treatment anytime soon? If so, here’s all that you should know about it! 

Why Get Led Light Therapy? 

In case you didn’t know before, NASA originally came with the concept of the LLT (led light therapy). They’ve used it in order to speed up the growth of so many different kinds of plants and vegetables in the 90s which weren’t getting any sun exposure. 

A few years back scientist and dermatologists have realized that LLT can make an impact on skin aging, acne, as well as some scars & wounds on our surface. Wondering if you’re the right candidate for LLT? Just know that this therapy can:

  • Reduce the inflammation 
  • Tame down and treat acne 
  • Can give you a younger-looking skin 
  • It will remove any age spots or wrinkles 
  • It does wonders with fine lines
  • Can be used by any age group

What Is The Procedure Like? 

Once you come to the salon you should be barefaced and you shouldn’t wear any makeup. Your esthetician will give you a pair of protective goggles that you will put over your eyes. This way, you won’t be blinded by wavelengths and blue & red lights. Each session takes around 20 minutes to do, and the number of sessions will vary depending on your skin type and your targeted concern. Your skin care specialist will determine whether they’ll use red or blue light on top of your skin.

What Is The Difference Between Red & Blue Light Therapy?

The red (infrared) light is used for treating epidermis, and it does wonder at stimulating your collagen. RED therapy is an often go-to choice by those who wish to improve their wrinkles and fine lines. This therapy is just as mild and non-invasive as the blue therapy, but your skin specialist can advise that you do both treatments, only at different times and at a different pace.

The blue light therapy helps with hair follicles and does wonders mostly for oily skin types, pimples, and acne. Women who have been dealing with acne all their life will want to feel the perks of blue light on their skin. The blue light therapy will make your acne a lot less active and will help with the hormonal disbalance. It is only important to maintain your results.

Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects? Who Shouldn’t Do The Procedure?

Plenty of women are worried that their faces will tan under these lights, which is why some of them will apply an SPF base beforehand. However, and according to the American Academy of Dermatology, LED is safe to do and it won’t cause any long-term risks, and you shouldn’t apply any creams or serums before the treatment. 

However, women who are super sensitive or those who are using some drugs may not be the most ideal candidate for the treatment, so make sure you talk with your esthetician or your dermatologist before you book your appointment.

What To Expect After The Treatment?

The treatment is super mild and it is not invasive, which means that there will be no specific downtime. This means that you can go back to your everyday routine the next day. Your esthetician will book your appointments about one week apart, and they will usually aim for 10 sessions. The best part regarding LLT is that you can spot the results right after the first treatment! If you want to maintain these results, try and come back to the salon at least on a bi-monthly basis.

Can I Do This Treatment At Home?

LED Light therapy is something that you can do on your own risk just like all other treatments. If you are serious about it and would like to give it a try, we would advise you to stick with a professional, and ask for their help & consultation.

A lot of women shy away from the use of retinoids in their skincare items. The truth is, only women who are in their twenties should stay away from retinoids. If you’re having any issues or concerns with your texture or pigmentation, you should include retinoids into your skincare and weekly routine. Keep on reading and find out about all the perks that retinoids can give, and which kind you should go for!

What Are Retinoids?

This is a chemical made out of vitamin A which is a common ingredient in a lot of skincare products. It is well-known and used as an anti-aging compound which has been around ever since 1970! With proper (and professional use) this product can stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin which will help your texture even out. It usually takes 2-5 months for women to notice a difference after using retinoids.

What Will Retinoid Do For Your Skin?

  • It prevents aging and works well on mature skin types 
  • It is an amazing exfoliant 
  • It helps with the production of collagen 
  • Fights off free radicals 
  • Prevents milia 
  • Prevents wrinkles

Who Shouldn’t Use Retinoids?

Retinoids are pretty harsh on top of the skin, and women who suffer from rosacea, as well as psoriasis and eczema, should stay away from these products. Those who have super sensitive skin should stay away from retinoids and should use products that don’t contain acids. Also, pregnant women should talk with their doctor before applying retinoids on top of their skin.

What Are The Perks Of Using Retinoids?

Slower Aging

The most common reason why women use retinoids is to fight off and slow down their natural aging process. Your cell regeneration slows down as you age, and once you reach your 30s, you start to experience drier and wrinkled skin. Retinoids will sink into your skin and help with this slow cell turnover and will give fresh skin without any fine lines.

Customizable

Not all retinoids are the same. Some perform better and stronger than the others. This means that your dermatologist can recommend and prescribe the right retinoid for your skin type, and will give you a customizable solution. 

Long-term Amazing Results

By applying retinoids over your skin and letting them sink in you are actually preventing any fine lines and wrinkles, and you are giving yourself a brighter complexion! Retinoids will increase your elastin production and will get rid of any dark spots as well as large pores.

When To Apply Retinoids?

Some women can experience flaking of their skin after using retinoids. This is why it is crucial to gradually incorporate and apply the product into your skincare routine. Your skin will need to build a tolerance to this ingredient. A lot of dermatologists recommend using the product at night only and sticking to a pea-sized amount. Ideally, you should apply any other skincare product 30 minutes later, and after the retinoid has sunk in. Try and use the product once a week during your first week, then gradually build on up to 2-3 times per week.

Vitamin C can be beneficial for your body, hair & skin health. It can also do wonders when you are trying to get over bad flu. However, some studies and plenty of dermatologists say that the use of this vitamin can boost your blood flow while giving you a glowy complexion, and a hydrated outcome! Do you love experimenting with different skincare items, and you are a fan of facials? If so, here’s why we believe that you should go for the vitamin C facial treatment, and how it can do wonders on almost any skin type!

Perks Of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is the main ingredient of collagen. As you probably know it by now, collagen is the most important compound when it comes to your skin’s health, glow, as well as natural radiance and shine. As we age, we tend to lose collagen, and our body produces way less of it. In fact, once we reach the age of 20, we will lose 1% collagen in each of the upcoming years! This is why it is essential to restore it either topically or orally. We recommend combining both of these methods for ultimate results! A heavy and significant amount of collagen can also help with wrinkles, fine lines, as well as any unwanted lumps and bumps on your skin.

Benefits Of Vitamin C For Your Face

By doing facial treatments that are rich in vitamin C you can get amazing skin. Also, vitamin C (when taken orally) can strengthen your immune system and will help with the absorption of calcium and iron. Our body will ingest and crave vitamin C while processing it the same way it does process water. If you intake foods that are rich in vitamin C and combine them along with your cream products, you will have better, more permanent, as well as more noticeable results! Some foods that you can eat to enjoy a prettier and shinier complexion are:

  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • Mango
  • Tangerine
  • Apple
  • Broccoli
  • Tomato
  • Cabbages

All of these on a daily basis with the combination of the right skincare products will bring you phenomenal results!

Why You Should Get A Vitamin C Facial Treatment?

If you are unsure about the perks of a vitamin C enriched facial, here is why most women love getting it:

  • It is filled with antioxidants that can help with protection from free radicals as well as the sun exposure
  • It reduces lines and gives your face more elasticity
  • It helps minimize the redness of the face
  • It slows down and prevents aging (perfect for mature skin types)
  • Great for dry skin and can give you a glowy outcome
  • Amazing at boosting your collagen production
  • Helps with acne scars
  • Helps with a dull complexion

Is Vitamin C Treatment Safe For Anyone?

Vitamin C skincare facial is safe to do for any age group, and it is mostly targeted towards women who are in their 30s or 40s. However, vitamin C treatment is not recommended for women who have allergies (or those who get irritated easily), as well as those who have sensitive skin. In this case, a skincare specialist will do a small patch test to see how your skin reacts. If everything goes well, you can enjoy the treatment.

What Is The Facial Like?

The treatment is customized per your skin type and your age. A skincare specialist will work on your skin for 30 minutes (approximately). The vitamin C solution is applied on top of the skin and the masque is absorbed with a firm and circular hand movements. The massage helps with the relaxation of your skin and muscles, while also lowering cortisol, which is linked with stress. The results of the facial will be visible in the following day, and everyone can and should redo it every 2-3 months to maintain their results! Vitamin C should be a part of your everyday routine, no matter your age, or skin type.

A lot of women deal with stubborn blackheads pretty often in their lifetime. During your teens, you experience a lot of acne, while once you are on your period you will have periodical breakouts. However, a skin concern that not that many people talk about, or even know about, is those annoying whiteheads that sit underneath the skin surface. They are also known as Milia (dermatological name), and here’s everything you should know about these whiteheads!

What Is Milia?

Milia is a small white bump that you can have on your cheeks, nose, chin, and most often – underneath your eyes and on your lids. Usually, women who wear a lot of makeup and who neglect their skincare routine will experience whiteheads. However, these are also pretty common in, believe it or not, babies! In fact, almost 50% of newborn babies will have them during their first year! In babies, Milia will resolve and treat on its own in time, and some adults may experience the same outcome. However, in some cases, you will have to remove them (if they end up being too stubborn and they don’t repair on their own).

How To Treat & Get Rid Of Milia? Top 10 Ways

1. Never Pick Or Poke Them

Every skin’s concern shouldn’t be touched. This is the number one rule of almost every dermatologist. Removing Milia can cause infections, bleeding, as well as unwanted bumps. Give it time at first, and see if it passes on its own. Ideally, try and wait it out for 4-6 weeks.

2. Clean Your Skin

Wash your face with mild face soaps that are paraben-free as well as gentle. Your soap shouldn’t remove your natural oils and should leave your skin balanced and healthy-looking. You can also ask a pharmacist or a dermatologist for their recommendation.

3. Open Up Your Pores

Your pores are often covered in bacteria since it can be hard to remove all traces of makeup, no matter how good or expensive your cleanser is. This is why you should use steam to open up your pores with either a pot of boiling water or with a real steamer. Steam will open up your pores in 8 minutes, and after that, you should pat dry your skin with a warm towel.

4. Exfoliate

A mild exfoliant will remove any dead layers of your skin. It will also remove dirt and pollutants that are harmful and that can cause milia. A cleanser that has salicylic acid or glycolic acid is good to begin with. Use a cleanser once a week, and see how your skin reacts to it. In general, you shouldn’t be cleansing more than twice a week, no matter your skin type.

5. Use A Manuka Honey Mask

A Manuka honey mask has antimicrobial agents that reduce inflammations. It is also filled with nourishing ingredients, perfect for dry skin and for soothing for the whiteheads. This honey can be applied in a raw form, or you can use it in the form of a face mask, or a sheet mask – based on what you find at a store.

6. Rose Water Is Also Great For Milia Removal

Rosewater is filled with natural rose oil. This oil can act as an anti-inflammatory agent once you pour it over your skin. You can find this online and in stores, and you should use it 2-3 times a day. Just make sure your eyes are shut as you spritz the product on top of the skin.

7. Try A Facial Peel

Some facial peels can have stronger exfoliating agents than your typical exfoliants. These facial peels can remove any bacteria, as well as Milia. You can do a facial peel on your own, or you can do it at a salon with a trusted facialist.

8. Try A Retinoid Cream

A retinoid cream has vitamin A which is crucial for the glow and radiance of your skin, as well as its elasticity. You could purchase some over-the-counter creams and use them once a day, ideally at night. Usually, it takes around 3 weeks for you to spot a significant difference with these creams, so be patient yet persistent.

9. Use A Facial Sunscreen

Sunscreen is crucial for your skin’s overall health, as you probably know it by now. However, a good sunscreen can also calm down any irritation that can potentially cause milia bumps in the skin. Ideally, you will need an SPF 30. Make sure you purchase a kind that suits your skin type. During winter days, strive for an SPF 10. Luckily for women, a lot of makeup nowadays already has SPF.

10. Get A Facial

Lastly, and if all else fails, book an appointment with your trusted esthetician. During your session, your facialist will open up your pores and will remove any unwanted gunk that is in your pores. They will use needles or a tool that is specialized for comedones. The treatment will be customizable towards your skin type, and will have you feeling cleansed, radiant, as well as nourished and pimple-free!
