Here at Portmans Pharmacy we care about skin. This week we kick off our Skin Condition’s. Campaign on Acne and Blemish Prone. A testing topic as this time of the year, dealing with the sweltering British heat :) can lead to increased oiliness and spot production as we have found a common trend.
This can be due to the weather change, warmer climates making us perspire more, with sebum glands working over board to cool our skin down. The skin is a fascinating organ, being the largest and most versatile, protecting us from internal and external factors throughout our life. To fight off Acne and Blemish Prone symptoms and understand our skin better. We have provided the best the industry has to offer in combatting these issues, suggesting brands and key products check out our specialised Skin Conditions section. blemish-prone- skin

Portmans Online we care about skin and routines.
Check out Todays post were we discuss the benefits of Institut Esthederm UK Esthederm's product thats Fights againt Acne.!!

Due to excess serum, oily or hyperseborrheic skin is shiny, thick, with dilated pores, especially on the forehead, wings of the nose and chin. It is often found in teenagers and young adults. Acne is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the pilo­sebaceous system (face, thorax, back). Follicular inflammation is due to bacterial proliferation (propioni bacterium acnes). The hormonal component is high in oily acne prone skin as the androgen balance is disturbed in 50 to 70% of young girls with acne prone skin. 5% of women suffer from it after the age of 40.
The scale of inflammation at the start of the acne lesion and its duration are factors that can predict the risk of scarring. It is therefore necessary to treat acne early by calming inflammation and reducing bacterial growth in order to stop this vicious circle. Propolis covers a series of resinous, gummy and balsamic substances of viscous consistency, collected by bees from certain plant parts, mainly buds and bark of trees. When used in cosmetics, highly purified Propolis guarantees a particularly effective action on acne prone skin.

Symptoms of acne prone skin: blemishes, microcysts, inflammation.
Cosmetic medicine: complementary care to acne treatments (laser, LED).

Synergistic action: purifying, antiseptic, decongesting, soothing and healing.

Blemishes diminish, the skin is clearer and purer. The complexion is clearer and healthier.

PROPOLIS is a substance with predominant antimicrobial properties, extending to several microorganic strains, bacteria, mold, yeast, earning it the name of "natural antibiotic". This property is mainly attributed to the group of flavonoids (majority components in Propolis), particularly galangin, pinocembrin but also caffeic, ferulic and salicylic acids.

50 to 55 % resins, 30 40 % wax, 5 to 10 % essential oils, 5 % pollen, amino acids, vitamins, trace elements, fatty acids and flavonoids.

PURIFYING AND ANTISCEPTIC: a "natural antibiotic", propolis helps eliminate Propioni bacterium acnes through its bactericide and bacteriostatic action
DECONGESTING AND SOOTHING: fights inflammation that comes with acne by activating blood circulation and cell metabolism
HEALING: stimulates collagen synthesis to speed up epidermal repair, thus reducing risks of acne scars.

Routinely cleansing twice a day, morning and night, to clarify and decongest pores, keeping blemishes away.

Exfoliate two to three times a week depending on sensitivity:
A light and soft grain exfoliator for sensitive fragile skin
An abrasive texture for a deeper cleanse but not sensitive

Avoid food with a high fat content such as snacks, fast food.
Blemishes in different parts of the face should be treated with different methods and creams in order to maintain an even complexion.

Dermatological moisturisers are very useful in tackling and controlling sebum production, avoiding whiteheads and blackheads. Use a moisturiser and a toner to specifically tighten and reduce enlarged pores.
A mineral based makeup is essential to prevent pore blockage.

Acne is a skin condition that occurs mainly during puberty. Pimples form when your pores become clogged by sebum, dirt and dead skin cells.
The oil that normally lubricates the skin gets trapped in blocked oil ducts and results in pimples, blackheads and whiteheads on the surface of the skin or deeper skin lesions called cysts. Acne pimples are most common on the face, however can also occur on the neck, back and arms. Often acne is genetic.

Makeup, hair and face care products can clog your pores.
Choose products that are non-comedogenic (meaning they will not clog pores)
Washing your face too often or using harsh or scrubbing products (like facial scrubs, exfoliators, masks, toners) can strip your skin and make acne worse. While it is important to remove excess oil, dirt and bacteria, it is very important to use an appropriate cleanser. Things that press against your skin can make acne worse, like a phone, sports equipment (such as pads and helmet), headbands and tight clothing.

Pimples are small skin swellings that sometimes contain pus.
Blackheads are dark formations on the skin due to an accumulated mixture of oil and cells in a blocked skin pore.
Whiteheads are small flesh-or white-colored bumps due to skin pore blockage.
Cysts are closed sacs beneath the skin or deeper that contain fluid or semisolid substance

Acne blemishes are small marks or flaws that spoil the appearance of your skin. This one of the pitfalls to overcome as this can lead to a lot of people effecting their self-esteem. It is a daily effort fighting off acne blemishes with the help of the right dermatological products.
