Acne is a problem that is as unavoidable as it is unappealing, especially in a hot and humid country like Singapore. But that doesn't mean you can’t treat them. It’s all a matter of knowing what to do when they appear.
Very often, the tiny bumps on your face are just whiteheads, which occur when oil, skin cells and bacteria become trapped within pores. To get rid of them, you just need to exfoliate regularly so dead skin cells don't accumulate on the surface, causing your pores to get blocked.
Try the Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel, which is is a non-abrasive peel that exfoliates without scrubbing or irritating your complexion. It is made with Arbutin and Fullerene to gently remove old keratin and impurities to leave your complexion softer and smoother.
If your pimples are red and slightly swollen, then just exfoliating might not be enough and you’ll need to treat them with skincare. The Skin Inc Vitamin B3+ Serum helps to rescue hormonal, blemished and imbalanced complexions and is infused with Niacinamide, Panthenol and Hyaluronic Acid to soothe redness and treat troubled skin.
For zits that look like a white or yellow pus-filled bubble, you might have to get your hands dirty, literally. While they may look disgusting, such pimples are ripe for popping and are less likely to leave a scar. If you’re squeamish and don't want to pop them yourself, you can also apply spot treatments to dry them out.
Now if you can’t seem to get rid of your zit no matter what you do, it might be time to bring in the big guns. The Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light++ uses NASA-inspired LED chromotherapy and sonic therapy technology to tackle multiple skin concerns. It has five different LED light options to treat five different concerns.
To prevent breakouts, use the purple Repair & Soothe option, which is a combination of red and blue LED lights to treat sensitive, blemish-prone complexions and open pores. Because it is able to penetrate deep into the skin, just 10 minutes a few times a week is enough to fight acne. Something else we love about this limited edition device? It’s USB rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about replacing its batteries.
No one likes blemishes, and with the right tools and products, you won’t have to worry about them.
