Tips from a derm for exercise induced acne
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.

Differin progress... is this a purge or what?
Differin progress... is this a purge or what?
Sorry this is gross.. I know my skin isn’t pretty right now. Today marks the 4th week I’ve been on DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump and also my new birth control (yaz). I have literally never, EVER seen my skin this awful and angry. Should I stick it out until the and of 12 weeks? Does this look like a purge or just a flat out breakout?! I’m freaking out.. I don’t even want to go outside looking like this. I’m also using Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream am and pm, and cleansing with CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser . Not looking to add any more products. Sometimes I use a hydrating toner. The dryness and peeling has subsided but the pimples do hurt, my cheeks are tender to the touch and sometimes itchy but that has gotten better over time also. Please help!!!!! EDIT: i just bought the DIFFERIN - Daily Deep Cleanser BPO 5%, Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatmentand HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewellto hopefully combat the horrible breakouts pictured above. just praying it doesnt over dry my skin.

A dermatologist’s recs for maskne 😷✨
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?

Dermatologist tips on pores!
Dermatologist tips on pores!
FACTS ABOUT PORES: Pore size is affected by: ✔️ Age ✔️ Sun exposure overtime ✔️ Genetics ✔️ Skin type For these reasons, it is not possible to shrink pores, but these products can help minimize the appearance of pores (I listed different options to choose from in each category. One from each category is all that would be needed): 1. Sunscreen ✔️ SPF 30 or higher in the morning, reapply every 2 hours (can use setting powder to reapply!) CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+ Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 2. Salicylic acid cleanser ✔️ Once a day ✔️ Treatment for acne CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser 3. Retinoids/retinol ✔️ Takes ~12 weeks to see an effect ✔️ Treatment for acne ❗️Acne may get worse before it gets better ❗️Only at night, must wear sunscreen during the day ❌ Avoid in pregnancy and breastfeeding DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment ❗️Sensitive skin may not be able to use salicylic acid cleanser and retinol/retinoid together at night (may be too irritating) ✔️ For sensitive skin: can consider salicylic acid cleanser in the morning & retinol/retinoid at night It can take weeks to months to start noticing a difference, patience is 🔑 What works to help decrease the appearance of your pores? Have you tried any of these? Comment below!

IM BACK WITH A DIFFERIN GEL REVIEW!!
IM BACK WITH A DIFFERIN GEL REVIEW!!
After a long awaited journey, I finally have a review on the differin gel for you guys :)) I’m very sorry I haven’t been active on updating everyone on my skincare journey. I felt very discouraged going through the purging phase while using differin, it felt like it was never ending. When one pimple was gone another batch just appeared the next day. It’s safe to say that differin is no joke. I’ve gone through all the side effects possible that were listed on their site, from flaky, red, dry skin to purging. Although I can say that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. Considering what my skin was going through, in the end it healed up nicely. I noticed a significant difference from when I first started to how my skin is looking now. I love this product and swear by it, it even helped with the texture of my skin. I highly recommend DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump This is my four month journey on Differin Gel so here’s a little recap: In the first few weeks of being on Differin I didn’t notice a significant difference on how much acne my skin was producing, it seemed very normal at that point. No side effects...yet. After the 3rd or 4th week I started to notice my skin had started to get dry a bit even after using the sandwich method (moisturizer, adapalene, moisturizer). Clusters of acne started to show up, even in areas I’ve never had acne before. This was where I had started to freak out, I felt so discouraged seeing all of these pimples show up out of nowhere. I didn’t even know if I wanted to continue but I pushed through. In the second month of being on Differin I noticed that the side effects had started to subside, flakiness and redness wasn’t as prominent as before and my skin wasn’t irritated with the products I used. I then switched to just putting the gel directly onto my skin instead of using the sandwich method, I felt ready and surprisingly enough it went very smoothly. At this point I was still purging, it took awhile for my skin to adjust and calm down. But after using it for about 2 1/2 - 3 months I started to notice a change. My skin wasn’t surprising me with clusters of pimples, luckily only one or two appeared every other week. This was happening for awhile and it still is. I am currently now on my 4th month, almost 5th of being on Differin and I’m so happy to say that it changed my skin for the better. Although it left a few dark spots I’m glad my skin is finally happy. My takeaway throughout this whole process is just to be patient and to have a simple skincare regimen. I’ve always thought that I needed these expensive products and the more the merrier, I was SOOO wrong. Everything I needed was right under my nose (the drugstore lol) I highly recommend Differin Gel if you’re suffering from acne or just want to plump up your skin. I’m now on my second tube of it!! Just remember to use sunscreen and be patient because this really is a journey and the results are so worth it.
