Acne Cosmetica is a very common problem among over 30-year-olds. It is caused by mismatched care and coloured products. If individual pimples or blackheads start to appear on your face, maybe it’s time to change the way you care about your skin or give up on make-up for some time. Check how to defeat acne cosmetica.
What causes acne?
The condition of this type occurs when the cells of sebaceous glands excessively keratinize. Sebum can’t get out onto the skin surface thus produces inflammation, pimples and blackheads. Clogged outlets of sebaceous glands make a perfect place for bacteria development. This is how hormonal and purulent acne develops. Acne cosmetica is trigerred by the use of poorly chosen coloured products.
Do you know which products or ingredients cause cosmetic acne?
Can you believe that each and every cosmetic, even the one you thought was the best and safe, may cause inflammation. It only has to stay long enough on the skin to clogg the sebaceous glands. Hair care and styling products may also cause blackheads on the face. Besides, there are lots of comedogenic substances i.e. paraffin wax, lanoline, silicons, mineral oils, fragrance and colouring substances.
How to treat Acne Cosmetica?
Prophylaxis is extremely important. Replace all your cosmetics with hypoallergenic ones. Remember about thorough make-up removal and regular face cleansing. Use enzymatic exfoliating scrubs, fruit acids or tea tree oil. Ointments and chemist products containing vitamine A work well. Cover visible lesions with a concealer or good foundation. If the condition persists, see the dermatologist immediately who will help you to enjoy nice and healthy face again.
