The Paula's Choice Research Team truly understands the struggle of dealing with those persistent, yucky blackheads. Although a blackhead may look like a large speck of black dirt, it has nothing to do with your skin being dirty, so you can't scrub them away. However, there are things you can do to effectively elimate them!
Cystic acne is one of the most difficult types of acne to treat. Though it is most likely caused by the same bacteria (p. acnes) as regular acne, cystic acne lesions are far more painful and have more risk of scarring compared to mild or moderate acne.
Even if you cleanse, tone, apply a sunscreen in the morning and a moisturizer at night, there's still one thing missing that could make all the difference in the world to get you the skin you want: an AHA or BHA exfoliant!
Before you find out how to take the best possible care of oily skin, you need to forget much of what you think is true about what causes it and how to improve it. If you're like most people, you've likely made some common mistakes trying to get your oily skin under control. With the right information, you can help oily skin without making matters worse!
You may think you've tried everything to reduce enlarged pores and get rid of blackheads, but before you give up, check out the research-proven tips you might have overlooked, or simply didn't know about. This advice could get you the trouble-free complexion you've always wanted!
You can be irritating your skin and not even know it because irritation, more often than not, doesn't show up on the surface of skin. Even though you can't see it, irritation is taking place beneath the skin's surface, causing damage, mutating skin cells, destroying collagen, and making large pores and oily skin worse.
Regardless of what it is or how you describe it, any breakout on your face is unwanted. Whether your skin erupts in white or red bumps or is dotted with blackheads, the objective is to get rid of them, and fast! Knowing what kind of breakout you have is the first step to clearer skin.
If you have oily skin, acne, or both, you may have heard of something called the "oil-cleansing method," either from a friend or from browsing the Internet. In that case, you're probably wondering whether the oil-cleansing method is finally the solution to your shiny face, or perhaps an end to constant breakouts.
How can you tell if a product will cause your skin to break out with pimples, white bumps, or blackheads?
