How to deal with a "Spotty" Situation

Remember how traumatizing it was to get a “zit “ in high school? Of course, a teen-ager is almost expected to get pimples. But, past the often-awkward phase of pre adulthood, a breakout becomes flat out mortifying. Well, grownup sufferers aren’t alone…1 out of every 9 people between the ages of 25 and 44 have consulted a doctor for help with what The American Academy of dermatology considers the most common skin diseases in the US: acne.

Facing a spotty reflection? Here some simple tips to help bring clarity to the situation courtesy of board certified surgeon Dr.Vish Banthia, founder of ZendyBeauty, an innovative money saving online beauty resource.

Cleanliness next to godliness…

Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne.
Always, remove your makeup before you go to sleep. Throw away any old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.

Leave well enough alone…

Don't pop pimples. Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.

Erase the past…

If you happen to be faced with unwanted mementos from your acne diaries, there are several FDA approved ablative and fractional laser resurfacing treatments available. These treatments produce remarkable results with skin appearance and minimize scar depressions. Added bonus, the process regenerates collagen, the protein that gives skin its appearance of smoothness and youth.
