It's one thing to hear that you have younger-looking skin because you look radiant and wrinkle free. It's another thing entirely to hear you have younger-looking skin because you're having the breakouts of a teenager. Are you struggling with acne as an adult? Adult acne can be a very frustrating condition to treat on your own, so why not get the expertise of the skin care experts at Innovations Medical?
Adult Acne: Inside Out
To effectively treat your acne, you first need to identify the cause of your acne. During the teenage years, acne is caused by fluctuations in hormones during puberty. Guess what? Hormonal fluctuations (caused by stress, pregnancy, aging and menopause) also cause acne to develop in adulthood.
Are you suffering from breakouts, dry skin or wrinkles? These conditions can be associated with aging, but did you know that the cause of these skin problems can also be traced to your workplace? Office environments are often too hot or too cold, you spend half your day hunched over a phone or keyboard, there are germs all over the breakroom, and workplace stress plays a part in creating bad skin.
Before you give your two-week notice, read ahead for suggestions from Innovations Medical on how to save your skin.
Workplace Skin Woes
The lower-than-usual temperatures we've been enjoying the last few weeks in North Texas have us ready for fall. Starbucks announcing that its Pumpkin Spice Latte is debuting for the season on August 28 helps, too. After a long, hot summer we are ready for cooler temperatures and chemical peels. Chemical peels? Yes, chemical peels! Find out why fall is the best time to refresh your face with a chemical peel from Innovations Medical.
Chemical Peels for a Fresh Face
Chemical peels are a form of skin exfoliation, which makes them an excellent way to refresh your face and erase the signs of aging. They work by using an acid solution, such as salicylic acid or glycolic acid, to create a controlled burn on the face. After the burn blisters and peels away, new, fresh skin is revealed.
