FAQ

UNDERSTANDING ADULT ACNE AND OILY SKIN
Expert advice about what causes acne and how to tackle it.

Getting your skincare right if you suffer with acne is absolutely vital.

There is no doubt that breakouts can leave you looking and feeling miserable. Whilst most people think of acne as a problem for teenage skin, over the past decade, doctors are increasingly seeing rising rates of acne in adults.

This can either be acne that persists past teenage years or acne that first develops in adulthood.

Acne is probably one of the most common problems I deal with in my dermatology clinics.So, here I’ve put together a list of the questions I am most frequently asked.

What causes acne?
Acne develops due to a combination of factors including excess oil production (sebum), dead skin cells blocking pores, and the action of bacteria (P acnes). It can manifest as blackheads or whiteheads (comedones). If the inflammation is very deep in the skin, then painful red lumps or cysts may appear. These can cause scarring of the skin.

What can make acne worse?
Hormones: androgens are hormones that are present in both men and women. Androgen levels rise after puberty causing an increase in size of the sebaceous glands resulting in excess oil production. The contraceptive pill, pregnancy, and a condition known as polycystic ovarian syndrome can all affect sebum production.

Diet: there is emerging scientific evidence that dairy products and foods rich in carbohydrates with a high glycaemic index (GI) may aggravate acne.

Stress: many skin conditions including acne can be aggravated by stress Medications: certain medicines such as steroids can worsen acne.

How should I be looking after my skin to minimise blemishes?

It is important to cleanse your skin twice a day – morning and evening. This can be in the form of a rinse off cleanser or micellar water. Choose a cleanser specially formulated for blemishes or oily skin, like those in the Normaderm range (my favourite is the Purifying Cleansing Gel as it makes my skin feel squeaky clean afterwards).

After cleansing, use a light gel-based moisturiser that is “non-comedogenic” i.e. prevents the formation of blackheads. I really like the Normaderm Hydrating Care day moisturiser. Even oily skin needs moisturising as oils do not equate to hydration. Moisturising the skin will maintain the integrity of the barrier function of the skin and is vital for good skin health.

Don’t pick or squeeze your spots as your skin will take longer to clear and you may end up with acne scars.

Should I exfoliate?
It is a good idea to gently exfoliate once a week if you have oily skin. This will immediately remove dead skin cells from the skin surface resulting in a brighter appearance. Longer term, it will reduce the development of blackheads. Be careful not to overdo this otherwise you will end up irritating the skin and making things worse not better. Try Normaderm 3 in 1, as it contains gentle exfoliation beads, and you can even use it as a mask.

Will wearing make up make my acne worse?
It is important to choose the right products for oily, blemish prone skin. If you wear make-up, then opt for an oil-free foundation or BB cream. The Vichy Dermablend foundation range provides fantastic coverage for spots; if you prefer a lighter coverage look then Normaderm BB cream is a suitable alternative.

I’m going on holiday and sunscreen makes my skin break out – what shall I do?
It is vitally important to wear sunscreen to reduce the aging effects of the sun. Many people with oily skin find that sunscreens can block their pores resulting in spots. Choose a mattifying sunscreen designed specifically for oily or combination skin, like Vichy Ideal Soleil Mattifying Dry Touch.

Skin care and products aside, do you have any other advice to reduce spots?
Having healthy skin is part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Follow a nutritional diet with plenty of whole grains, vegetables and pulses. Learn to de-stress and make sure you get enough sleep and exercise.

This article reflects the opinion of Dr Anjali Mahto and is intended as general advice only.

See a doctor if your acne is affecting your self-esteem, failing to clear with the treatments you have tried over the counter, or leaving scars or dark marks (hyperpigmentation) on your skin.

You should seek advice from a professional before altering your diet, changing your exercise regime or starting any new course of conduct.

Before using any skin products, it is important to read the information and follow the instructions on the package.

  • Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, our Rightdose pharmacists or nurse.

A GUIDE TO SALICYLIC ACID & HOW TO INTRODUCE IT TO YOUR ROUTINE

Learn how Salicylic Acid can help to clear and soothe your skin and the simple way you can add it to your everyday regime. When it comes to skincare, it can be hard to know where to start. But, once you start to understand the basics and how certain ingredients can work for your skin, you’ll feel far more confident and informed – and hopefully get better results in the process.

Acids are one of the most effective ingredients to add to your skincare routine so they should go to the top of your list. Salicylic acid is a great place to start as not only is it great at tackling blemishes, but it’s also anti-inflammatory and ideal for both sensitive and oily skin types. Here’s everything you need to know…

What is Salicylic acid?
Salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliant derived from a natural plant hormone and can help make way for fresh new skin cells by removing old cells, cleaning away excess sebum and oil in the process. This makes it great at tackling blemish-prone skin and oily complexions that become congested easily.

How does Salicylic Acid work?
There are two types of acids: AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as glycolic acid that target the top layer of the skin, and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) that are water soluble so they reach more deeper into the skin’s surface. This is what makes it so great at clearing away congestion and blemishes over time.

Can Salicylic Acid be used on sensitive skin?
Salicylic acid has soothing benefits so it can help to calm the skin. Just make sure you’re using it alongside other sensitive products and don’t mix it with any other acids. A patch test is always recommended too if your skin is particularly reactive.

Can you use Salicylic Acid when pregnant?
As Salicylic Acid is a BHA that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, it’s not usually advised to use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Speak to your doctor or dermatologist about alternatives you can use during this time.

What products include Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic acid cleanser
Normaderm Phytosolution Purifying Cleansing Gel features Salicylic Acid along with Zinc Gluconate and helps reduce excess oil and cleanse away pollution from the skin. When used every day, morning and evening, with warm water, this gentle cleanser will help to promote the appearance of clearer skin by clearing impurities from the pores and removing blackheads.

Salicylic acid toner
Normaderm’s Purifying Astringent Lotion uses a three-in-one action to help reduce the appearance of the pores and shine. It does this with exfoliating Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid which help to refine the texture of the skin and eliminate impurities. Apply it freshly cleansed and dry skin using a cotton pad before following with your usual serum and moisturiser.

Salicylic acid moisturiser
Our award-winning Normaderm Phytosolution Double Correction Daily Care with 2% Salicylic acid is the perfect way to make this key dermatological ingredient a part of your everyday regime. Suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin, this daily moisturiser has a really hydrating yet lightweight texture that absorbs quickly into the skin without adding any excess oil. It can help to reduce the appearance of imperfections, enhance the skin’s natural barrier function and help to protect the complexion from pollution.
