There are a few things that should have been left back in high school - the side ponytail, the blue mascara… you would think acne would be part of that list, right?
Unfortunately, unlike your love for somewhat embarrassing make-up trends (we swear they were cool at the time!), acne isn’t always something you can say goodbye to so easily, even as an adult.
A Secret Skincare Patient - Before & After using the Acne Formula
Acne is one of the most normal parts of growing up. Of course, you get the lucky few who manage to get away unscathed by it all, but for most of us, it's a “been there, done that, don’t ever want to do it again” type situation. Yet it still happens to be something that will follow us into adulthood.
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that appears as a collection of redness and bumps on the surface of the skin. There are four factors that directly contribute to the formation of acne:
- Excess oil production.
- Pores becoming clogged by dead skin cells.
These four factors are largely influenced by lifestyle factors, such as:
- Hormones, stress, and the menstrual cycle in women (all of which can influence oil production).
- Hair products, skin care products, and makeup (which can clog pores).
- Diet (which can influence inflammation throughout the body).
- Some medications, including corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, and lithium, can also cause acne.
While acne is more common in teenagers, it still occurs in adults. Adult acne is becoming increasingly more common and if it's something you've experienced, then you know how much of an impact it can really have on confidence.
Many skin disorders can be a window into our inner-health. Acne can sometimes be an outward symptom of something happening internally. Our doctors always recommend taking a holistic approach when it comes to skin, meaning you should always be looking from the inside out. While you are trying to fix the potential internal causes behind your acne, what are you to do in the meantime?
The Secret Skincare has got this answer covered.
Adult Acne Treatment
We understand that breakouts are an unfortunate yet unavoidable part of life - the good news is, with the right treatment, this skin condition is manageable. Whether it's the occasional breakout or more severe, cystic acne - both our original Cellular Repair Night Cream and the Acne Night Formula treatments are designed to manage adult acne and restore clarity to your skin.
Managing Skin Health and Acne with Night Cream
The Cellular Repair Night Cream uses active ingredients to increase the rate at which your skin cells turnover. This process rids the skin of anything on the surface layer in the way of its clarity and brings through shiny, new baby cells for a smoother, clearer and brighter complexion. The Cellular Repair Night Cream is recommended for skin that experiences:
- Hormonal blemishes, generally found around the chin area.
- Blemishes from stress, generally found around the chin area and cheeks.
- Occasional breakouts.
The Acne Night Cream behaves in a similar manner, while also utilising topical antibiotics known amongst dermatologist circles to be the most effective for the treatment of acne vulgaris. This powerful compound prevents the further spread of adult acne and assists healing for clear, radiant skin. It can also be used as a skin spot treatment for stubborn breakouts in contained areas of the face and is a fantastic option for those not wanting to take the common adult acne treatment route of birth control pills or harsher oral medications such as Accutane. The Acne Night Cream is recommended for skin that experiences:
- Big, painful and consistently recurring blemishes around the chin area that never really disappear
- Blemishes that aren’t restricted to one area.
- Clusters of breakouts on the forehead and cheek area.
- Large and more frequent breakouts largely due to congestion of a build of oil in the pores (cystic / more severe).
