Insider Secrets to Great-Looking Skin for the Acne Prone




Skin conditions such as acne, acne rosacea, or merely the impact of aging affect most adults at some point in their life. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology reports that acne is the most common skin disorder in the country, affecting some 40-50 million Americans. What’s more is that around 85 percent of all people in the country will at some point in their life have acne. Add to that the additional 16 million people who are affected by the skin condition rosacea and it’s clear to see that skin problems are common. It also leads millions to search for products or treatments that will help them have great skin.

“Having great looking skin is a mystery to most people. They are just not sure what to do in order to make things better,” explains Crystal Wellman. “Some of the things they do may even work against them to make it work, even if they are using products that claim to help their skin.”

The good news is that there are things that can be done in order to improve and have great-looking skin, including these six secrets:

  1. Avoid irritating. It’s important to avoid the urge to pop, pick or otherwise irritate acne or other skin conditions. This will just make it worse. While you may want to squeeze that pimple, you are better off leaving it be.
  2. Be gentle. Always use gentle products that will not be abrasive or dry the skin out. Be gentle when rubbing the face to clean it as well, being sure to avoid any vigorous scrubbing or harshness. Choose a facial cleanser that is gentle and not overly drying -- hydrated skin heals faster.
  3. Stop the clog. The make-up industry is huge, with just the sales of organic and natural beauty products expected to top $9 billion next year. This make-up may look great, but a lot of it can clog the pores, leading to acne and other skin problems. Those who wear make-up should be diligent about gently cleaning it off their face at the end of the day. Always check all makeup and skincare products for pore clogging ingredients; as long as you are using them you will never be acne free.
  4. Think protection. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, affecting over two million people each year. Sun and even being around cigarette smoke can damage the skin and lead to premature aging of it. Make an effort to protect the skin by wearing sunscreen, a hat, or sitting in the shade.
  5. Drink water. Many people question whether or not staying hydrated helps you have great-looking skin. It is important to understand that the skin is an organ and like others it needs water to be at its best. It’s always a good idea to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  6. Get help. Not everyone is able to successfully take on their skin conditions and win all on their own. Get the help you need from a professional who can help identify and treat the problem, as well as provide information on how to avoid it in the future.

“Once you learn more about what to do and what not to do it all becomes easier to have great-looking skin,” added Wellman.

6 Steps to Avoid Breakouts From Skincare Expert Crystal Wellman




According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting millions nationwide. Acne can be triggered from various causes including hormones, stress, and unhealthy eating. However, acne is not totally out of your control. This June, during Acne Awareness Month, make the effort to avoid acne altogether. Crystal Wellman of the Crystal Clear Acne Clinic offers her top tips to reduce or eliminate acne.

“So many people are suffering from all sorts of acne right now, from mild to severe, but you don’t have to,” affirms Crystal Wellman, a Master Aesthetician and owner of the Crystal Clear Acne Clinic. “There are the obvious steps you can take to reduce your acne, like reducing your stress or eating healthier. However, there are certain actions that people can take which you may not have thought of before.”

If you want to get rid of your acne, here are Crystal’s 6 steps:

  1. Avoid Fabric Softeners. Fabric Softeners in the washing machine and sheets in the dryer create a waxy residue that clogs your pores. Make sure to wash your pillowcase and hand towels weekly.
  2. Avoid Swimming Pools. While swimming pools are refreshing during the summer months, the combination of hot and humid weather, physical exercise and chlorine leads to major acne breakouts.
  3. Avoid Sports Drinks. Sports drinks and sports bars contain ingredients that lead to breakouts. Try to avoid foods that contain iodized salt, seafood, seaweed, fast foods, and dairy products.
  4. Avoid Comedogenic Products. There are hair, make-up and sunscreen products on the market designed to avoid clogging pores and causing breakouts. Look for “non-comedogenic” labels when shopping.
  5. Avoid Sleeping with Makeup. Even make-up designed not to clog pores can lead to breakouts if you sleep with it on. Let your skin breath by washing your face at least twice a day and applying moisturizer.
  6. Ditch the Dairy. Milk products have a tendency to create inflammation in the pore. Clogged pores and inflammation will leave you with major breakouts. Try almond, rice or coconut milk instead of cow or goats milk dairy products.
“The best way to get rid of your acne is to see a professional,” affirms Wellman. “A skin specialist will be able to identify the root of your problem and advise the best course of treatment to permanently eliminate acne.”
