Battling skin problems


Most of us suffer skin problems from time to time, so it is good to know there are some simple, hard-working solutions for most of them.

Here are a few ideas from Metropol to combat a couple of the more common conditions.

Redness
If you are prone to rosacea, eliminate any products that may cause irritation, and consider using a retinoid night cream. Retinol increases the rate of cell turnover in the skin, normalising its equilibrium. Look for a facial cream that’s not too heavy or rich, and one that will add a barrier of protection for your skin. Serums and masks may also help, so consider using a soothing one. For extreme irritation, see a certified dermatologist.

Acne
Acne and oily skin are the most common side effects of stress. For immediate relief, try a clarifying cleanser twice daily, and avoid over-exfoliation. If you suffer from blemishes try a spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid as an active ingredient. Use a light moisturiser once a day, and consider a lightweight gel that hydrates the skin and absorbs quickly.
