How to get rid of closed-cell acne?
Mar 25,2022 | HISEEK PRETTY
First of all closed mouth is also called closed pimples and is part of acne. Yes, that's the point, it's a disease! When I first got into skincare, I was browsing the forums and I saw everyone talking about it. I didn't even know what it was. I didn't even know what it was. If you don't know what a closed mouth is here, I would also suggest you look at it yourself, as posting a picture may cause discomfort to others.
That said, if it's a disease, it needs to be treated - other than that, all sorts of methods are aids, and quite often useless, even harmful.
In the case of purely atopic acne only, which is graded as mild (Grade I) in the 2014 edition of the Chinese Acne Treatment Guidelines, the mildest grade, the first-line medication options are topical retinoic acid, and the second-line options are peroxylated benzoyl, salicylic acid, fruit acids, and herbs. Oral or topical antibiotics are not recommended. This is only to give you an idea of the medication to be used, and you should follow your doctor's advice and not just buy it yourself.
Salicylic acid, fruit acids, and benzoyl peroxide are all available in skincare products. The United States can add benzoyl peroxide to skincare products, but there are other countries where it can be added, but it's too much trouble to find the regulations, so I won't. As a tip, benzoyl peroxide can be dry, even peeling, itchy, possibly red, and possibly black after use - there is a reason why it is regulated as a drug.
I have divided what you call "closed mouths" into two categories.
The first is when there is a lot of closed pores and they are quite large. If you have a lot of pimples, you need to go to a dermatologist and try to fix it yourself.
But don't we do anything else? Of course not.
For closed-mouth acne, you also need to pay attention to the following points.
1. Eat more vegetables and fruits, and be less spicy and sweet.
2、Avoid staying up late, smoking and drinking.
3, avoid the sun, if you are afraid to rub sunscreen is not good, rely on hiding and blocking, anyway, try not to sun.
4, pay attention to cleaning, without makeup, three times a day to wash the face is appropriate.
How do I get rid of my closed lips? Choice of cleanser.
It is best not to use soap-based acne, soap-based is too strong in removing lipids and is not less irritating, many products are also red after washing and cannot be ruled out as it is irritating causing the possibility of closed mouths becoming red and inflamed acne. Some men's cleansers, especially those that claim to be refreshing and deep cleansing, are also known to add spicy mint extracts and other irritants. If you're looking at other facial cleansers, the common ones are sulfates, phosphates, amino acids, and APG. Apart from the sulfates, I think the others are generally irritating and can be tolerated better, so you can choose almost anything. If your skin is a bit sensitive, just choose from the APG category.
The other bad thing is to say that in the end, there is a bad thing about soap base is that people who love to grow closed mouth, many of them have large pores, soap base produces a lot of soap scum, is that you wash your face with soap, stick to the side of the basin that circle of dirty things, that is not necessarily your face dirty, more often than not, the harder you use the water, the more metal ions in the water, the more soap scum, which is why I recommended that you use pure water to wash your face. This is one of the reasons why I recommended that you use pure water to wash your face. Oh, that's a bit of a misnomer, but the point is that soap scum has the risk of clogging pores, and it's pretty dirty, so don't underestimate it.
How do I get rid of my closed lips? Other product options.
In fact, there are two types of situations here
① those who are using Vitamin A acid, in this case, there is no need to consider other skincare products with exfoliating features, skincare products with exfoliating ingredients, which actually means products containing fruit acids, and salicylic acid, and of course, scrubs are even less suitable. When you use A-acids, you are already exfoliating, so adding two exfoliating ingredients can easily over-exfoliate and turn you into sensitive skin.
On the contrary, when you use acid, your face will become dry and even break out, so you need to pay extra attention to moisturizing. You don't need to think about your oily skin and focus too much on refreshing products, remember that you are using acid now, which is different from when you don't normally use it. Remember that moisturizing is important at all times and is a step that must be taken to ensure it is done properly. Excessive pursuit of freshness is paranoia and must also be cured.
If you don't use vitamin A
Here again, there are two cases.
This type of skin is recommended to use fruit acid salicylic acid products to help exfoliate and reduce the clogging of sebaceous glands in hair follicles. In terms of the concentration of acid products, my advice for non-sensitive skin is aha fruit acids around 10%, pha around 15%, salicylic acid 2% these are the common content of fierce. You can use them in different areas. Also, there are differences between thick and thin skin on the whole face. By zoning the brush, you can avoid the risk of making some areas too thin and locally sensitive. The most common areas that tend to get thinned are the cheekbones and nose. Generally speaking, the forehead is a little more tolerant. You can start by brushing the areas that are better tolerated and feel how you react to the acid before you decide on the concentration and frequency. In the beginning, it is better to be lazy than to brush too often. Many people may think that it's not working, so why not just do it more often - this is wrong.
As mentioned above, acid brushing is just a means of regulating keratin metabolism and avoiding blockages. There are many other factors that influence acne and closed pimples, such as excessive sebum production and abnormal levels of the various components of sebum, and the influence of Propionibacterium acnes. Acid brushing is only one of these factors, and it is a skincare grade acid that only tones the cuticles, which may work well for some people and not others, so don't expect it to have a strong therapeutic effect.
The other condition is sensitive skin with closed-cell acne, and here it's a bit easier - don't touch the acid yourself unless your doctor has prescribed it for you. Although it is true that not all sensitive skin is thin and not all thin skin is sensitive, there is a high correlation between the two. As mentioned earlier, just a single brush of fruit or salicylic acid has a limited effect on treating closed skin. Brushing is a definitive event to make your skin thinner, and it is not a good decision for sensitive skin to go for a risky event with uncertain benefits.
The second scenario is - you only have one or two closed pores, and not all the time, which has a 90% chance of not being acne at all. This is similar to staying up late, eating spicy food, and getting one or two acute red pimples the next day, there are many possible causes and you have to ask what exactly they are. It's impossible to say exactly what it is. The key is that if you understand the main causes of acne, you will understand that in the case of one or two pimples, the chances of these medicines being right are low. So when you only have one or two pimples, you can choose not to do anything and wait for it to heal on its own. Or if your skin is quite tolerant, you can play around with a little topical acid.
After you've had your pimples, you can use a lotion, cream, serum, or other product of your choice.
As I have said before you still need to avoid animal and vegetable fats and oils as much as possible because if you have acne and if Propionibacterium acnes plays a strong role, the triglycerides in animal and vegetable fats and oils will be broken down by them into glycerol + free fatty acids. The former will be used by P. acnes as a source of energy and the latter will stimulate and increase inflammation. You can't avoid it completely. It's actually a very common oil, so there's no need to be overly alarmed, as it's perfectly fine when your skin is normal, but when there's a lot of acne, just try to avoid it.
Finally, a summary of how to get rid of acne. You need to go to a dermatologist to see a doctor. Don't go off on your own, the more you toss and turn, the harder it is to save.
