Pimple Remedies Line, New to Jessa Skincare!
Do you need acne or pimple remedies? Pimples are one of the most common reasons new clients come to Jessa Skin in San Rafael, CA. Every week, we meet teenaged to midlife-aged women and men who struggle with maintaining a clear complexion. There are many things people can do to avoid pimples including using the best natural or organic skin care products.
If you struggle with pimples then you know the words “whiteheads,” “blackheads,” “scarring,” and “red inflamed bumps” all too well. In order to eliminate them from your face or body, it is important to understand why they might be there.
What are Pimples?
Pimples are skin legions or pustules that are infected with bacteria, become inflamed and then fill up with pus. The pores on the skin’s surface connect to the oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle. Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin.
What Causes Pimples?
In short, pimples are caused by blocked pores and dead skin cells that don’t properly shed off the body. There are many causes of pimples and acne: toxic products, hormones, stress and diet, to name a few. If you look into these causes, you most likely will find that some changes to your daily routine will help eliminate frequent breakouts.
What Can I Do to Avoid Pimples?
Knowing that pimples are caused by dead skin cells that pile up in the pores, it is important to remove dead skin cells by exfoliating and using products with active ingredients that naturally eliminate dead skin cells. We recommend professional exfoliations such as peels and microdermabrasion. These treatments can greatly improve pitted scarring and active breakouts.
While you are neutralizing your acne or if you have a bad breakout, book regular extractions from a skilled and professional esthetician. Never extract your pimples at home unless you have professional training. You can cause scarring and damage to your pores and therefore cause more acne.
It is also very important to wash your face twice a day. At Jessa Skin, we are so excited to introduce a new line of all natural, organic pimple eliminating products! Months in research and development, these new products are some of the best that we’ve developed and know they will benefit so many of our clients.
