Acne and Acne Scars
We thought our teen years were going to be the end of our acne days, and for some of us they were. However, for others it was just the beginning. Acne is a natural process that everyone will have to go through. Granted, some people have it worse than others but that is ok. Before I go on no matter what your age is and how bad your acne is – its ok, keep your head held high and smile. The great side to acne is there are ways to cure it. There are medicines that you can use to help clear up this situation. There are facial cleansers that you can use to remove current blemishes and prevent more acne from appearing.
According to American Academy of Dermatology, women in their 30’s and beyond still have acne. It may not be visible on the face, but it can be found in other places around the body. Some of the most common places are the back, shoulders, butt, and your upper arms. There also is not just one type of acne, there is the common blackheads and whiteheads but, that’s not all. The first type of acne is called Papules which feels hard and makes your skin feel like sandpaper. There are Cysts which is when pores fill up with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria. This type can hurt a lot if the bacteria travels deeper into the skin. Last, there are Nodules which are large hard bumps that are under the surface of your skin. This type will leave scars.
According to U.S. National Library of Medicine (Medline Plus) no one knows exactly what causes acne. However, there have been studies done showing a link with acne and hormone changes, which can explain why teenagers and women are prone to it. There are other studies that shows that stress does not cause acne but it can make matters worse. Also, there is little evidence that food causes acne. So go ahead and eat that greasy food and sweets, just not a lot of it because it can cause other issues in your health.
Acne can cause more than just physical issues. It can make people have low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. It can even create social withdrawals. People that have acne may feel like they never look good because of their acne. Losing your self-esteem can cause depression. Depression is actually very common for those who have acne. One might separate themselves from other and feel that they are ugly. Since acne begins at a young age it can become a trait well into adult years. The interesting thing that scientist have found was no matter the severity of acne, depression is still a common thread. Meaning someone with very little acne could still become depressed because of it.

Is this what I think it is? Is this a wrinkle? Some of us may have said this while looking into the mirror in the morning when we are putting on our make-up. Getting older comes with some great rewards such as being able to drive, drink alcohol, renting a car, and have credibility to start your own career; but it also comes with some bad as well, such as paying bills, bags underneath your eyes, your skin becoming dull, and wrinkles appearing. Well, no matter what we will always have to pay bills, yet there are ways to clear up those bags underneath your eyes, freshen your skin, and even get rid of your wrinkles. There are also different routines you can do to prevent all of these unwanted imperfections. Some of them don’t even require money being spent, just change to your daily schedule.
One of the biggest things that we tend to forget to do when we get older is sleep. Ok sometimes we don’t forget, we just don’t have enough time to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep each night. Yet,
not only does our mind and body need it, so does our skin. During the day our skin becomes a protection shield against nasty germs that want to get into our bodies. The skin is constantly protecting our other cells that make up the body. While we are sleeping our skin is repairing itself, just like a warrior would do in between battles. The way the skin repairs itself is by sending new skin cells to replace the old and damaged ones. If we don’t get the sleep that we need our skin will become tired and over worked which is why we get those dark under eye circles , dull looking skin and wrinkles. Also, lack of sleep can lead to stress. Stress can cause your skin to have many different problems – acne, and wrinkles or “worry lines”. So stop stressing and start sleeping – your body, mind, and skin will appreciate it.
Like I have mentioned in the Let’s Rejuvenate Your Skin article, the sun can also affect your skin and can cause it to age faster than you expected. Our skin has a love hate relationship with the sun. It loves it because it needs it for Vitamin D. It hates it because it can damage the skin cells due to UV damage. The top layer of your skin is doing its best to protect itself, but it comes down to how much melanin you have in your skin. Melanin protects the skin from UV rays, and the more exposure your skin gets, it will cause your skin to produce more melanin (UV protection) and that is what makes you tan. However, if you don’t have a lot of melanin the UV rays will fight pass the top layer and will burn your skin. As UV rays enter the skin cell it harbors small amounts of cancer. Peeling of the skin is your cells committing suicide and shedding off from your body to prevent these traces of cancer from harming any more cells in your body. The constant death of your skin cells is what causes your skin to become wrinkled as the epidermis becomes thinner and loses elasticity. So to avoid this wear sunscreen or sunblock when you know you are going to be in the sun for a long time!!
If you smoke this too may be the reason why your skin is becoming wrinkled. Smoking contains toxins which cut off the oxygen and nutrient supply to your skin. It will also cause your skin to dry out, and create age spots. It is the worst possible thing you can do to your skin and health. Drinking water however, is one of the best things you can do. Drinking water helps get rid of the toxins in your body and will help your skin over time.

In today’s social realm, there’s a general assumption that the world of women’s skincare is more complex, diverse, and confusing than men’s skincare, but one glance at the after-shave market will immediately dissipate that notion. With balms, splashes, creams, combinations, and even after-shave/cologne fusions, the average man can often feel lost with the thousands of options that lie in front of him. In order for you to the save time of digging through forums and blogs, we here at Clear Essence Cosmetics are here to give you all the information you need to find the right after-shave for you.
The first step in becoming a better consumer of after-shave products is to understand how after-shaves work. When you shave, aside from cutting your hair, the razor cuts off a thin, top-layer of skin, naturally exfoliating the skin and saving you from skin issues. This sounds great, but you can’t just leave a layer of newly exposed skin to fight the elements on its own; susceptible to bacteria, dirt particles, and the weather! So for centuries, men have looked toward after-shaves to tighten, cleanse, disinfect, and moisturize their newly exposed, fresh layer of skin that is revealed after shaving. Luckily for you, after-shave is cheap and readily available, so don’t make the mistake of merely shaving and disregarding the benefits of after-shave! But which after-shave should you purchase?
Some after-shaves are splashes that cleanse and tighten the skin. Some are balms that moisturize and soothe the skin. Some have lots of chemicals and are fragrance-free; while some are fusions of after-shave and cologne. By just barely scraping the surface, we’ve seen how many after-shave products there potentially are in the marketplace today, but Clear Essence Cosmetics may have the product you’ve been looking for. The Chimere Bump Control After Shave Gel offered by Clear Essence Cosmetics can easily become a key aspect of your skincare routine. In one use, the Chimere After Shave Gel will calm irritation, prevent razor bumps, and moisturize the skin all while evening out the tone of your skin with subtle skin-lightening agents; like licorice extract. Cleansing and disinfecting your newly exposed skin is crucial, and let Clear Essence Cosmetics be your solution to the chaos of purchasing after-shave products.
