Tips from a derm for exercise induced acne
With a new year comes resolutions, many involving healthier lifestyles and exercise. So why let exercise induced acne hold you back from achieving these healthier choices. Exercising can cause excessive sweating-leading to increased oils, dirt, friction, and even bacteria on your skin leading to acne. This can manifest as facial or truncal acne (think backne), often known as acne mechanica or folliculitis. Cleansing properly is incredibly important for preventing exercise induced acne. It’s important to remove all makeup prior to working out. Gently shower with lukewarm water immediately after sweating. If a shower is not available, reach for a cleansing wipe. Clean, loose-fitting moisture wicking attire is key. This helps prevent friction and additional bacteria and sweat from dirty clothing. In addition to wiping down all gym equipment, don’t forget about the stuff that hits your skin regularly such as headphones, watches, and headbands. Most importantly, don’t forget sunscreen and gentle moisturizers.

This is my night skincare routine for oily, combination , acne prone skin. These products are so good and help me lots with painful acne around jawlines. 🧖🏻♀️I use #Senka - SENKA All Clear Water Micellar White[products]#[FiveStars] ove my makeup. I like this one because it has green tea in it and very suitable for combination acne prone skin. 💜 Next, I use TATCHA - The Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser aka the perfect winter cleanser. Even my usually oily skin likes this. It’s very gentle, smells so so nice and luxurious. Lathers beautiful but still creamy. It cleanses your face as it should but doesn’t dry your skin out during winter. 💆🏻♀️For acne treatment, I exfoliate withCOSRX - One Step Pimple Clear Pads 2x/week and use LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment 3x/week but not in the same night. 🔥✨ Then we have this lovely moisturizer INDIE LEE - Daily Skin Nutrition I’ve tried many oil free moisturizer for my stubborn oily skin but nothing works. It’s always look dull and shiny in the afternoon. If you have the same issue this product is perfect for you. This moisturizer IMMEDIATELY sinks into your skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. It makes my skin so soft, doesn’t feel sticky after applying, even suitable for sensitive skin. The only downside to this is it’s the scent. It smells kinda weird to me but will disappear after a few minutes. That’s all from me. Hope you like this post 😁 *Music: Together( Prod. by Lukrembo)

Dermatologist’s Tips for Starting Adapalene
Adapalene is my go-to retinoid for beginners! Why? It’s prescription strength, clinically proven to improve acne, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. It’s also the gentlest of the prescription-strength retinoids and one of the most stable, meaning that it can be used during the daytime and at the same time as benzoyl peroxide. And to top it all off, it’s now available over the counter! Here’s how to get started: Take it slow! Adapalene, like other retinoids, can cause irritation and purging in the first few weeks. The easiest was to avoid this is to start slowly. Start out applying it 2-3 days per week and gradually work up to daily application. A little Dan is all you need! You don’t need to be bathing in adapalene to see good results. In fact, applying the correct amount (a pea-size) will help ensure that you’re getting the benefits without increasing the risk of irritation. I like to take my pea-sized amount and dab it on the forehead, nose, chin and both cheeks before spreading to ensure even application. Slap on a moisturizer first! Another way to make adapalene more tolerable is applying it AFTER moisturizer. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but some studies done with other retinoids indicate that applying moisturizer first decreases irritation with no impact on effectiveness. I swear by this method myself. Be patient! Like with any change to your skincare routine, don’t expect to see substantial results until at least 6 weeks of consistent use. It might be hard due to irritation and purging but try to power through – the benefits are worth it. Most importantly... Adapalene can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so don’t skimp on the SPF, hats, sunglasses and protective clothing. Though I know you’re doing that already Which one to choose? There’s not an easy answer on this one. Most over the counter adapalene gels are similar. I’ve used and enjoyed both La Roche-Posay and Differin’s versions.

La roche posay review
So the balm? Yes it is amazing, it is everything I always wanted in a skincare product. And it helps clear up my skin while moisturizing so double plus. No scent, and not too heavy or sticky. 5/5 The Adapalene gel. I’d give it a 4/5 because it’s not too harsh, I haven’t noticed any differences and I’ve been using it for 2 weeks. To be fair my acne hasn’t gotten worse but it hasn’t entirely gotten better. Doesn’t dry out my already dry skin too bad, I just don’t know if it’s working

A dermatologist’s recs for maskne 😷✨
Let’s talk maskne, the most common chief complaint I’m seeing these days. There are many different causes ranging from acne mechanica (acne caused by irritation/pressure from the masks) to actually being allergic to the mask material. Consider seeing a dermatologist if the following tips/products don’t seem to help: If possible wear a clean surgical mask daily however with PPE shortage, this may not be possible. I use a n95 + surgical mask at work and a breathable, cotton mask outside of work. Avoid unnecessary makeup, don’t forget sunscreen, and don’t skip out on moisturizing. Whether you have dry or oily skin, you still need moisturizer. Oily/combination skin: use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser, a gentle retinoid such as adapalene gel, and spot treatment with either BP or salicylic acid. Start slow and increase as tolerated. Dry/sensitive skin: use a gentle cleanser, gentle moisturizer, and if tolerated consider a spot treatment with either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Consider slowly adding a gentle retinoid like adapalene gel two to three times a week while using adequate moisturizer. What are your favorite types of masks/maskne treatments?

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
