Adult Acne

Acne can be a problem for some women during adulthood. While most acne tends to go away in the teen years, some forms of acne can get worse with increased age. There are a few methods for ridding of acne. To get rid of acne, gentle treatments must be followed.

One form of acne treatment involves getting skin pH balanced. When skin has a pH balance of approximately 5.5, it is balanced. Acne forms when acne bacteria feeds on sebum. Bacteria is most prevalent on the skin when the skin has a lower pH balance. Skin that is gently cleansed is slightly more acidic, which helps to prevent bacteria from increasing on the skin. Many cleansers are too harsh and cause two problems: they over-dry the skin and create a pH balance that is too low to effectively fight bacteria. 

Another form of acne control that is more natural is to wash skin with water only. Water is splashed on the skin at night and in the morning. After splashing on water, the skin is patted dry with a clean towel. While it sounds like this would cause more acne, it actually helps to improve the skin in a variety of ways. Because the skin is not being stripped of its oils, it slows down oil production drastically. Oil sits on top of the skin protecting it, but the pores are not constantly bombarded with it. The pores that also let out sweat combine with the sebum and create the perfect pH balance. The skin becomes suppler, redness disappears, it heals more quickly, fine lines disappear, breakouts clear up and the skin glows.

While the face is healing from acne, makeup can be worn to cover it. There are different techniques to cover up acne, but one of the best ways to create a flawless finish is to use airbrush makeup like Temptu Pro. Foundation can be airbrushed on. Because it sits on top of the skin, it is unlikely to cause further blemishes. To take off, coconut oil and other oils can be used to cleanse the skin. Simply rub oil on the skin and wipe off with a damp wash cloth or baby wipe. Coconut oil also helps to fight acne bacteria.

The Little Man

I was checking guitarcenter and once again the thoughts of seeing my son master an instrument gave made me smile big time. I asked the little man what could be that instrument and he picks the piano. He do enjoys the old piano in his grandparents house but his interest in music is just a fragment compared to his interest in drawing. His eyes go brighter and bigger everytime he's on his working desk with all his pens and colors. Well I'm just so happy that he got his artist genes from my brother. Whether a musician or a painter, I am one proud mama here, winks!
