If you’re suffering from adult acne, learn how you can stop breakouts in their tracks.
The Acne Cycle
Understanding the causes behind acne can help you treat breakouts more successfully. Pimples cycle through several stages before an eruptive breakout occurs. It usually starts with a clogged pore or hair follicle on your skin. As your skin naturally sheds, it mixes with oil which causes a sticky clump. When these clumps get trapped in your pores, they combine with bacteria which cause acne. Furthermore, as the bacteria feeds on the oil, they release byproducts that set off an immune response. White blood cells rush to the infected area causing redness, swelling, and inflammation.
Purifying AZA Cleanser
The Purifying AZA Cleanser is a mild wash specifically designed to address the redness and inflammation that accompanies common skin conditions like rosacea and eruptive breakouts. The formula contains a combination of powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients like Purifying BioSulphur which helps regulate hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands. When used as directed, most people discover a noticeable reduction in redness and inflammation, as well as less sebum on the skin’s surface due to the cleanser’s sebum regulating properties. Other active ingredients in the Purifying Aza Cleanser aid in acne removals such as Azelaic acid, a pharmaceutical anti-acne agent that offers comedolytic (not clogging pores) and anti-bacterial effects to rid the skin of mild to moderate acne. The ingredient helps stop the growth of bacteria on the skin, an essential part in any acne care treatment. The Purifying AZA Cleanser also contains Kaolin Clay, an all-natural ingredient that draws impurities like dead skin cells and dirt from the skin. The cleanser also contains arnica extract which offers anti-inflammatory benefits and fights against other skin issues like bruises and dark circles. The cleanser has a white, clay consistency. A few amount can go a long way of cleansing your face. A quick tip is to add a bit of water to liquify the clay-like consistency. Besides from cleaning your skin, the AZA Cleanser gives a cooling sensation after cleansing that calms down redness.
