4 Key Steps to Treating Acne Naturally
Natural Acne Treatment in Toronto
Acne can range in severity from the occasional breakout to the ongoing eruption of painful, swollen nodules or cysts. As any sufferer of severe acne knows, acne can be debilitating.
Whether caused by genetics, hormone imbalances, excess oil production or other factors, the best way to fight stubborn acne is to attack it at the source. An acne lesion forms when bacteria (called P. acnes) and sebum mix with dead skin cells, resulting in a “plug” in the hair follicle and inflammation. Accordingly, the most effective acne treatments target bacteria and the painful swelling it causes.
Daily Acne Treatment
When it comes to managing and treating acne on the daily, here’s the protocol I recommend:
Manage bacteria with Oligopeptide-10 and Salicylic Acid.
Enhance cell turnover with Retinol
Antioxidant protection for cells by using Resveratrol
Always protect the skin against UVB and UVA rays with zinc oxide.
