For those blessed with normal skin, a second thought may never be given to special cleansers, medicated lotions, or topical pigmentation medicines; every day starts with a simple washing of the skin and a makeup routine, and another thought is not given to the whole matter until it comes to cleansing one’s face and body at the end of the day before retiring to bed. During the day, foods such as chocolate or French fries are not glanced at with hesitance, they are simply enjoyed.
This is however, the furthest from the truth for those with problematic skin. Prone to surprise breakouts and stress-induced pimples, blemished skin is both a physical and psychologically damaging issue. A single badly placed blemish may be the deciding factor between a confident interviewee for a job listing and a nervous self-conscious individual who just misses the mark.
There is no panacea for problematic skin. Different individuals are affected by different forms of acne for a number of reasons. These range from the occasional stress-induced pimples to chronic illnesses such as acne vulgaris or eczema. For this reason, the field of dermatology is a major area in modern medicine, in terms of providing customized solutions for each individual’s issues.
A reputed and respected dermatologist should be consulted if your skin condition does not seem to subside within a few weeks. As home remedies do not work for every individual, it is best to seek the advice of a dermatologist to learn the causes of your skin issues as well as the possible solutions for them. The consultant may perform tests and provide a questionnaire to determine if any external factors such as pollution in the environment or your diet may be contributing to your problem.
Depending on the severity of your condition, for eczema, for example, the dermatologist will recommend a certain regimen of skin care for you to follow. Typically, this would consist of a specialized mild cleanser, a topical treatment, a nightly tropical treatment, and occasionally, orally ingested medicines.
Since modern technological advancement has enabled the inclusion of natural products into medicinal skin care, asking your dermatologist about products such as organic eczema treatment cream, or natural anti-inflammatory methods, will allow you to expand the scope of your treatment based on your skin’s necessities as well as your own preferences. Here too, it is best to inquire about these products with your consultant before incorporating them into your skin care regimen so as to ensure that it would assist in the improvement of your skin and would not cause any adverse reactions.— April 22, 2016
