  • What Can You Do To Manage Adult Acne?

    The pimple

    Adult acne affects about 20% of men and 30% of women between the ages of 20 and 60.  Sebum, an oily substance produced in the skin, causes acne breakouts. When sebum clogs pores, it allows bacteria to cause inflammation. Some adult acne is the result of medication consumption, though a hormone imbalance may also be the trigger. Whatever the cause, acne can be treated with the help of skin care products and professional advice . Here is some information on how to manage and treat adult acne:

    Consider Your Options
    No two individuals have the same skin; therefore, it is important to search until you find a treatment that is best for your skin type. Adult skin is generally less oily than teen skin, which makes many medications geared toward teens a poor choice for adults. Find a cleanser that is gentle on your skin, such as CeraVe or Cetaphil. Avoid products containing beads, as these can irritate sensitive skin.

    Visit a Dermatologist
    You don’t have to be alone in exploring your skin care options – a dermatologist can help. A dermatologist can identify your skin type and provide treatments that will work for you. There are multiple options available ranging from over the counter topicals to aggressive, systematic theraphy. The key is to learn what will benefit you the most while minimizing side effects.

    Develop a Regimen
    It is important to establish a skin care routine. Keep your face clean by washing with the prescribed cleanser twice a day. Avoid washing your face for longer than two minutes, and use warm water. Use your hands instead of a wash cloth to avoid irritation. 

    Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology of Salt Lake City offers a variety of medical, cosmetic and surgical skin care services. We provide acne treatments, as well as Botox, laser hair removal, chemical peels, and several skin care products. Please call us at (801) 266-8841 to learn how we can serve you.

  • Sunscreen Quick Facts

    Each year, there are more than two million people diagnosed with skin cancer. No matter your age or race, sunscreen is an important aspect of sun safety. Wear sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun’s most harmful rays.

    The two kinds of sunrays that reach the earth are ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA rays are responsible for wrinkles, sunspots, and other factors that age the skin. UVB rays usually lead to sunburns. The best way to protect yourself against both types of ray is to use broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. It is also important to apply the sunscreen about fifteen minutes before going outside and to re-apply it every two hours.

  • Understanding Your Skin Type

    It is important to learn your skin type before choosing skin care products. Your skin has two types of glands – one produces water and the other produces oil. The balance of water and oil on the surface of your skin determines what skin type you have. If you don’t know your skin type, you might choose a product that makes your skin problem worse. Watch this video to learn about the four skin types and discover which one you have.
