Acne Skin Care for All Ages

Acne knows no age limit and even afflicts infants. Only when Acne occurs in babies' skin it usually ears in a matter of weeks without special medications. Wouldn’t it be great if we could go back the days of flawless baby skin! That’s what I used to wish for when my skin started breaking out at age 11. My Mom told me I would outgrow it and have clear skin when I got older but that was not to be true in my case. While Acne is common during teenage years I was unlucky enough to fall into the 50 percent of women that experience acne flare-ups in their twenties and beyond. Some men and women suffer with problematic breakouts well into their 50’s! I suppose however in another way I am lucky because my acne eventually led me to the field of professional aesthetics.  I became a licensed Esthetician when I was 26 and have devoted my career to helping others with their skin health concerns. During my clinical skin care career I have gained an abundance of knowledge about managing skin conditions and am passionate about sharing what I’ve learned with my clients and students of corrective skin care.

A healthy skin is slightly moist, soft and elastic.  Its texture is ideally smooth, fine grained and it is free from disease or disorder.  The skin under normal conditions is resistant and self renewing.  The skin forms the boundary between the external world and the internal organs.  Its main function is to provide a protective covering against micro-organisms and other harmful substances/ but it also performs other functions:

Provides heat regulation by controlling sweat evaporation
Provides a system that allows for cell renewal
Provides a waste disposal system, ridding the body of toxins
Provides a sensory perception
Provides a tough outer net giving form to the body
Provides protection from UV radiation
