Flawless Skin - Fast

June 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 196

Just when you thought you'd escaped your teens and 20s unblemished, you find yourself battling breakouts in your 30s-and beyond. Hormones can fluctuate like mad in our 30s, 40s, and 50s, as we go on and off the pill, get pregnant, enter perimenopause and, eventually, menopause. Pimples aren't the only resulting problem, either. There are quite a few conditions that mimic acne, which can make it hard for women to know what they truly have and how to treat it. But diagnosing those red bumps can be easy if you know what to look for.

You might have adult acne. The acne you get in your early adult years erupts for the same reasons it did in high school, primarily due to generations and hormones. But, it's not always that estrogen levels are falling and male hormones are increasing, as many people assume. The body simply develops a new sensitivity to hormones, which can result in breakouts. And those who are prone, androgen-or male hormones-can overstimulate oil production and interfere with the normal shedding of skin cells, causing pores to clog and bumps, blackheads, and whiteheads to pop up. Treat it with over-the-counter acne products, to start. Go for the cleansers, oil-free moisturizers, and spot treatments with pore-clearing salicylic acid or sulfur, both of which are far less drying than benzoyl peroxide. Choose formulas that double as anti-agers, fighting lines with products that contain peptides and antioxidants. Homemade solutions also exist. You can create a pimple-fighting paste by mixing a little bit of honey, an antiseptic, a dab of 1 percent cortisone cream, and some aloe gel, which soothes the skin. Simply apply it to the breakout. You'll get all the anti-inflammatory effect of cortisone,and it'll take some of the angriness out of the pimple. If your skin doesn't clear after two or three weeks of at-home treatment, see your dermatologist. They can shrink those buried cysts with a shot of cortisone or prescribe a short course of antibiotics-creams and pills-for severe cases of adult acne.

If you notice redness on your cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead, plus visible blood vessels, you might have Rosacea. The exact cause of this chronic inflammatory condition is unknown. Some experts blame it on bacteria; others attribute it to inflammation or a micro-organism residing in the oil glands. Without treatment, bothersome blushing can lead to unrelenting redness, bumps, and swelling. Unlike adult acne, rosacea bumps lack plugs-the sticky clumps that come out when you squeeze a pimple. Treat it with antioxidant-rich sunscreens, anti-inflammatory moisturizers and gentle cleansers. And cover it using makeup with a green tint, which counteracts crimson. Avoiding things that cause you to blush-caffeine, alcohol, spices, the sun-is a crucial part of treatment, too. If these remedies don't do the trick, see your dermatologist. They will likely prescribe oral antibiotics or recommend intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to knock out background redness and laser treatments to target broken blood vessels. One to three treatments, at $400 to $600 a pop, are usually needed for both IPL and laser.
