How to visibly reduce acne in one week – 7 day skin clear with Taylormade’s Helen and Chloe. #acneawareness.
Hello, it’s Helen and in this weeks blog post, I wanted to share a video with you, where Chloe and I talk about adult acne and skin outbreaks – and I give practical advice on what you can do about it.
Acne (and outbreaks) are not exclusive to younger people. They can happen in your 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s!
It’s a common misconception that acne and outbreaks occur in the teenage years and early twenties. However, women (and men of course) in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s can also experience outbreaks. One common trigger for what we call ‘adult acne’, is a rise and fall in hormones, particularly for women who are peri menopausal or going through the menopause.
I often get women of these age groups coming to me, quite distressed about things because they thought that they’d left those days behind them. So, if YOU are currently struggling with outbreaks or adult acne, know that you really are not alone with this…. Cameron Diaz is in her 40’s and still struggles with her acne…. And there is something that we can do about it.
A gentle and calming approach is the best way to soothe an outbreak.
I can remember when I was a teenager, and the over the counter spot products used to be really, really unforgiving. Ingredients used to strip the skin of moisture, which would only exacerbate the problem.
Harsh spot creams and alcohol based cleansers, are not the way to treat the problem. A much gentler approach is necessary, as your skin is already confused and over-reacting. As you can see in the video, when Chloe came to me for advice, she was struggling with an outbreak …
I treated Chloe’s skin with a Taylormade treatment, consisting of all natural ingredients which are also vegan friendly. I started with a peel, which removed any build up of dead skin cells that may be contributing to the problem and then treated Chloe’s skin to a calming mask (mixed up by myself so that it was specifically Taylormade for Chloe’s skin) that contained honey.
This allowed the fresh skin that was revealed after the peel, to be instantly hydrated (moisture is important in balancing an upset skin), and soothed, and Chloe said that it felt amazing.
Almost as soon as we took the mask off, I could already see a visible difference in Chloe’s skin – we had calmed things down dramatically and so next we spoke about maintenance.
Once you have calmed the outbreak, it’s time to think about maintenance.
I gave Chloe my taylormade spot serum which she went home and applied diligently. I also gave her some of my soon to be released products that helped balance her skin in a gentle way and I asked her to track her results for me. As you can see from the photographs, Chloe’s skin was virtually clear by the time the week was up.
Once Chloe’s skin was completely clear, I started her off on a skincare routine that would keep things balanced. One thing to note here, is that the products or treatments that you use during the outbreak, aren’t what you will use once things have cleared.
Your skin needs are constantly changing (depending on stress levels, hormones, diet, the weather), so your skincare products should be reflective of this.
