Many of you have been asking us with regards to treatments of some of the most common skin conditions. Today we'll be addressing those questions that you've raised, and hopefully, you will learn something new in the next couple of minutes. Having a glowing, healthy, and fabulous skin is an asset if you didn't know. Unfortunately, not many of us are that fortunate. Skin is not all about beauty but also health. Therefore, skincare treatment should be treated with all seriousness. If you develop a skin related dilemma, you need an appropriate skincare treatment.
Skincare treatment, for any skin disorder, starts with actions aimed at preventing the disease. Something we can also call as proactive or preventive skincare treatment. Building and following necessary skincare procedures is what one could classify as a precautionary or active skincare treatment. Nothing is pretty much guarantee; Skin disorders can occur even if you have followed this precautionary skincare treatment. Preventive skin care treatment reduces the probability of occurrence. Up next, let's take a look at some of the most common skin conditions and what are the necessary steps you should take to treat these problems.
I would say the majority of us at some point of our lives have had this one before; if not, you must be one of those lucky few! As some of you might have guessed it by now, yes, it's acne. Acne is one of the most common problems. The first type of skincare treatment is to control acne and prevent your acne from getting worse is to avoid tight clothes; they are known to cause body acne by trapping sweat. Secondly, do not touch the blemishes over and over again, even better if you don't touch it at all. You will most probably end up aggravating the condition. Moreover, do not try to scrub too hard or squeeze them. Instead, usage of a mild cleanser is a recommended skincare treatment for acne. In general, mild cleansers are obtainable over-the-counter. The one brand that we recommend is Aesop(not sponsored), their products have a lovely scent to each of its own uniqueness and, most importantly, it gets the job done.
Next on the list is dry skin, you may ask what dry skin is? Dry skin is skin that doesn’t have enough moisture in it to keep it feeling soft and supple. People with dry skin may have rough-feeling patches that flake off or look scaly. It may or may not be itchy, but severe dry skin may crack and bleed. Skincare treatment of dry skin is generally straightforward. Moisturisers, applied in the right way and with the right quantity, are the best form of skincare treatment for dry skin. For most solid results, apply moisturiser while your skin is still damp (Protip: gently tap on your skin while applying, do not rub it all over your face) Also, do not apply too much or too little moisturiser. In exceptional cases, where you do not notice any improvements in 3-4 weeks, you might have to visit your dermatologist for more professional and detailed skincare treatment of your dry skin.
Last but not least, we have brown spots. They usually appear on sun-exposed areas of skin i.e., face and hands, are caused by over-exposure to UV radiations. So how exactly do we go about treating these brown spots? Well, it's pretty simple, use a sunscreen lotion with a high SPF (sun protection factor), say 15. This should be used irrespective of the weather if it's sunny or cloudy. Another form of skincare treatment is covering up the exposed areas with clothing (caps, full sleeved shirts/t-shirts, and umbrella).
Likewise, if the general skincare treatment or the over-the-counter medication is not working for you, you should immediately consult your dermatologist for professional skincare treatment. It would be best if you also informed the doctor about the skincare treatment that you have undertaken until that time. So take the details of the till-date skincare treatment and bring the products along with you if possible. Based on the skin condition and the details of your till-date skincare treatment, the dermatologist will prescribe a skincare treatment e.g. oral antibiotics, chemical peels, retinoid, etc, and you will be on your way to recovery.
