Fungal acne, is not actually acne. 🤫
Fungal acne, is not actually acne. 🤫
Hi, thanks for reading me in advance. ✨ Okay, let’s began with What is fungal acne? Fungal acne is a type of yeast infection in your skin’s hair follicles. It is not acne, but it looks like acne. Most of the dermatologist find difficult to diagnose this since the majority of the time looks like acne. That’s probably why most of products that help to get rid of acne, does not work for this. What are the causes? Fungal acne (Malassezia Folliculitis) feeds from oil and sebum that your face produces, and it usually grows around your chin or forehead. They are pretty uniform in size, and it might come with some itchiness too. So if you live in a tropical weather, if you have oily skin, if you practice sports, you might have a high probability to develop fungal acne. Ingredients to look for/ avoid while having fungal acne: Ingredients to look for: Niacinamide, controls the excess of oil and sebum. Salicylic acid, is an anti fungal ingredient. BHA, helps to prevent fungal acne as well. I Believe it or not some shampoos with Ketokonazole ingredient (specially shampoos that are anti dandruff) works for fungal acne. Sulfur (avoid benzoyl peroxide products with sulfur please) Honey, which is anti fungal and an anti inflammatory. Ingredients to avoid: Facial oils Moisturizers with heavy oils (avoid overusing moisturizers as well) Stay away from routines that have a lot of hydrating products, in other words, minimize your routine. Products that I suggest: Serum THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum BHA PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Moisturizer CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Shampoohead & shoulders - Instant Oil Control Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser Sunscreen CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin Sulfur De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength Also I suggest to check the list of ingredients of your products in the website sezia.com To check which products contribute to your fungal acne, or which one helps. 😋 Make sure to always get a dermatologist diagnosis, because like I said fungal acne treatments are very different from acne treatments. Don’t make the mistake to treat it with acne products because it will make it worse. I hope this little info helped you! And I wish you a happy day. 🌞

PM Routine
PM Routine
Started this routine faithfully for about two weeks all together using these all together at night. I’ve been using Arbonne cleanser and night cream for years but have added the other things in too. Arbonne Cleanser- I love this anti aging cleanser for its ingredients, texture and it gets all my makeup off too. So I use this first. DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5% I use this cleanser after my makeup is off and scrub jt around with my face scrubber pictured. I also let it sit on my skin for a couple minutes so it can soak in and work then I wash it off. insta natural - Organic Rose Water I forgot to picture this but I use this as my toner. I never notice if one toner works over the other but I always make sure to use a toner after I wash my face. De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength I honestly use this more before I do my morning routine but sometimes I do it before my nighttime routine after I cleanse my face. I leave it on for awhile to dry up my zits. Sometimes at this point I use a serum, I alternate between insta natural - Dark Spot Corrector or insta natural - Age Defying & Skin Clearing Serum or insta natural - Skin Brightening Serum, Anti-Aging or ARBONNE Renewal serum or ARBONNE Spot correcting essence..... or I do The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Then I use my ARBONNE NIGHT CREAM. I use my DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel on top of my night cream so I don’t overly dry out my skin. I don’t use this retinoid the same night I use The ordinary peeling solution though. I may have a couple times but it will definitely make your skin red and hot which I don’t want to overly irritate my skin either. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I use this with a drop of emu oil to help lock in moisture, help my acne scarring and help heal whatever acne I do have. I noticed a slight difference using the emu oil (definitely leaves your skin so soft in the morning) but the minute I started using insta natural - Age Defying & Skin Clearing Serum whether morning or night and DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5% DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel I noticed a huge difference in my acne, inflammation and texture of my skin. I hope this can help someone else like this app has helped me! It’s so nice to finally see some improvement in your skin.

🧪𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢-𝐀𝐜𝐧𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬🧪⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐨𝐢𝐧 - patience is what you need if you want this ingredient to do wonders for your skin. great for acne and anti-aging - surely will be my bestfriend for a long time. although I think it doesn’t do much for my pigmentations, this has improved the texture of my skin tremendously. ⁣ ~ 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐨-𝐀, 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐮𝐥𝐚, 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐮𝐦𝐚 𝟎.𝟓% 𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐭 ⁣ ⁣ 𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐜 - the underrated one. I’ve always loved zinc for my scalp. I use it for my hairline, it’s an awesome ingredient for seborrheic dermatitis (self diagnosed😅) When I learned about malassezia folliculitis (fungal acne) and I was positive I had it, I tried Zinc for my face and it totally got rid of the pustules/whiteheads. I use it in the morning while in the shower, lather and leave it for 5-10mins on the face then rinse off. Give it a week of two to do its magic. ⁣ ~ 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐙 𝐁𝐚𝐫, 𝐓𝐎 𝐍𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞+𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐜⁣ ⁣ 𝐒𝐮𝐥𝐟𝐮𝐫 - I don’t see this a lot in cosmeceutical products but it’s one amazing ingredient. Just found my lost ointment not long ago. Sulfur is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It’s great on absorbing excess oil too. Leave it on affected area and rinse off after 10mins. I usually use it once, but if the acne is stubborn I would use it again the next day. Sulfur speeds up the process of healing the skin. ⁣ ❗️sulfur can burn the skin and you can end up with dark marks, never leave it on for more than 10mins. ⁣ ~ 𝐬𝐮𝐥𝐟𝐮𝐫 𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 (𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐜 𝐨𝐱𝐢𝐝𝐞, 𝐒𝐀) ⁣ ⁣ 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘰𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘴: ⁣ 𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐀𝐜𝐢𝐝 - excellent pore-clearing/exfoliant especially for acne prone skin⁣ 𝐍𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞 - reduces inflammation ⁣ ⁣ 𝘮𝘺 𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘢: ⁣ tretinoin 0.018% ⁣ 𝐂𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐦𝐲𝐜𝐢𝐧 -antibiotic, reduces bacteria and swelling (not for long term use) ⁣ 𝐀𝐳𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐜 𝐀𝐜𝐢𝐝 - anti-inflammatory , also great for rosacea sufferers

Hyram Approved✔️How to Get Rid of Little Bumps on Your Face🤔
Hyram Approved✔️How to Get Rid of Little Bumps on Your Face🤔
If you have the bumps that look like pimples but are not, and no matter what you do they won’t go away. They are commonly called fungal acne. They are not acne, but a type of yeast in the skin, and a lot of acne treatment products won’t get rid of fungal acne in the skin.  Fungal acne occurs when there’s an overproduction of oil and moisture on the face, so it always happens to people who have oily skin or live in a really humid environment or sweat a lot. They are pretty uniform in size and you may notice some itchiness as well. They typically on the forehead and sometimes around mouth.  The ingredients that you should avoid in order to get rid of fungal acne is complicated. For example, Fatty Acids, Linoleic Acid, Esters, Lauric Acid, Fatty Alcohols, etc.  You could go to the website Sezia.co, and paste all the ingredients to see if the product will cause fungal acne.  The ingredients you should use: Niacinamide: it controls sebum production within your skin. It helps with the root problem rather than trying to get rid of the surface level issues  Salicylic Acid: an exfoliating ingredient that goes deep into the pores and pushes out all the dead skin cells and dirt, but also helps to clear the oil on your face. It is the best acne ingredient in general. Honey: anti-fungal and anti-inflammation  Products approved by Hyram: ✅Nizoral - Anti Dandruff Shampoo ($15): YES it is a shampoo. There is a specific ingredient in anti dandruff shampoos called ketoconazole. It helps to get rid of all the excess oil that typically forms around the base of our hair shaft. It is a very effective ingredient to get rid of fungal acne on your face. Make sure your skin is damp, then take a good amount to smother on your face and leave it on there for 5-10mins, and then rinse off afterward. You could do this every day.  CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin($12): gentle but effective  THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser ($10): a little bit stronger than CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator ($29): makes Hyram’s pores look smaller  NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% ($16): very lightweight  THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum($7) De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength($7): clear away the excess oil and dirt  I'm from - Honey Mask($38): leave it for 10-15 mins and wash it off afterward. It contains a high concentration of honey and other beneficial ingredients.  Tips and Tricks to avoid fungal acne: Limit your moisturizer: a dime-sized amount at most  Minimize your skincare routine and make sure your products are fungal acne safe  Remove sweat, especially if you are an athlete. DON’T let the sweat stay on your skin.  Stay away from oil products, like facial oils  Comment below to share your thoughts or experiences!

how to clear up your fungal acne
how to clear up your fungal acne
growing up i never really had acne. it wasn’t until maybe 8th grade till i noticed some texture on my forehead and it only got worse throughout my freshman year of high school. after trying every acne treatment ever invented (ok maybe not all of them) ive finally have found out a way to maintain my FA so that i dont look like 14 year old me anymore 😳 what is fungal acne? fungal acne ( malassezia folliculitis ) is when the healthy yeasts that live on your skin get too comfortable and start to grow. causing that raised itchy texture we all hate what causes fungal acne weather ( hot humid climate ) sweat stress certain ingredients (lipids, polysorbates, esters, oils, and fermented ingredients) what to avoid ok so as said in the previous section, certain ingredients can promote the growth of malassezia. and it just so happens that a HUGE percentage of skincare on the market will be formulated with these types of ingredients. i know very sucky so here are some ingredients to avoid! -absolutely NO oils. the only oils that are fungal acne safe are squalane oil, mineral oil, MCT oil. -all polysorbates including 20, 40, 60, 80 -fermented ingredients ESPECIALLY galacmyces -fatty acids ( stearic, linoleic, myristic, oleic) just to name a few -esters ( glyceryl stearate is the most common one) treatment and ingredients that help -Curology - Curology formula ( clindamycin, niacinamide, azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione) - green tea extracts -honey/ propolis extract -slicylic acid (bha) -sulfur ( De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength) - tea tree oil - urea - sun exposure 😀🌤 - then we have the inti dandruff shampoo like Nizoral - Anti Dandruff Shampoo and head & shoulders - Classic Clean Daily-Use Anti-Dandruff Shampoo but in my opinion i find them to be unaffected but idk try it for yourself some of my favorite products for fa -CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser -Curology - Curology formula( azelaic acid, clindamycin, zinc pyrithione) -NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% -Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum -FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream -FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer for more information about fungal acne go to www.simpleskincarescience.com and go read “The Fungal Acne Treatment Bible (2020): Cure Malassezia With Science!” to check if your skincare products are fa safe go to - folliculitisscout.com -sezia.co -skincarisma.com ( that one isn’t as reliable but it still pretty good) like and share! xo melanie

FA safe but there is a Sulfur product I prefer
MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ^ has no fungal acne triggers Has 2 ingredients that help fight fungal acne: - Sulfur - Salicylic Acid Some people say it dries out there skin too much but I think it’s okay as a spot treatment. But it didn’t do much for my acne. A Sulfur spot treatment mask that works really well for me is De La Cruz - Sulfur Ointment, Acne Medication, Maximum Strength which you only leave on clean skin for 10 min then wash it off and use your regular skin care products
