When It’s More Than Acne – Qatar

1 41

If you’re breaking out long after your teen years are over, you may need to look beyond your skin for the source of the problem.

Sometimes Acne is a symptom of an underlying condition that can cause far more than facial blemishes.

Hormonal Misbalance such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and few other disorders can cause severe acne which won’t respond to any “traditional” treatments.

Hormone-related acne tends to flare in areas that are usually considered “hormonally sensitive,” especially the lower third of the face. This includes your cheeks, jawline, chin and upper neck.

Sensitive stomach, chronic constipation or unhealthy diet could be other reasons of breakouts. If you notice that you have inflammations on your skin after a big party or a visit to McDonalds, you should pay more attention to your eating habits.

It’s very important to cleanse your skin every day. This simple, step-by-step routine covers the basic types of products everyone should use and the order in which to use them every day. These steps apply regardless of your skin type (oily, dry, normal, or combination).

Morning

  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Moisturiser w/ sunscreen

Evening

  1. Cleanser 
  2. Exfoliant
  3. Toner
  4. Moisturiser

If you have skincare concerns, such as acne, red marks, wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, or rosacea you should add treatments to your concerned areas – anti acne lotion, medication for rosacea etc. So it will be:

Morning

  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Treatment
  4. Moisturiser w/ sunscreen
  5. Optional: Targeted treatment (applied as needed before sunscreen)


Evening

  1. Cleanser
  2. Toner
  3. Treatment
  4. Moisturiser
  5. Optional: Targeted treatment, as needed, applied before or after your treatment product.

So if topical treatments don’t seem to work, you should consider that there’s a good chance that it’s because the problem isn’t coming from the surface of your skin!

Always consult a professionally trained dermatologist BEFORE trying any new treatments or medication!
