If you deal with acne prone skin, you likely have tried many products, tricks, and acne treatments to help soothe and heal your skin. However, there are so many products with terribly harsh ingredients marketed towards acneic skin that often do more harm than good in the long term. Our wonderful esthetician, Halley, at Coco Med Spa in St. Pete recommends consulting with a skincare professional and getting yourself on a routine at home as well as prioritizing routine visits to a professional.
Treating acne prone skin is about protecting your skin and the barrier that it provides from the outside world. When acne prone skin is erupting or breaking out, breaks in the skin are more prone to infection, not to mention pain and discomfort. At Coco Med Spa, we offer a variety of skincare services, targeted acne treatments, and skincare products to help heal, soothe and protect your skin while helping it become healthy and clear.
Why See a Professional?
The first thing to know about caring for acne prone skin is that it can be a process. Having a professional evaluate your skin, determine any sensitivities, treat your skin, and guide you throughout the process is essential to the health and well being of your skin in the long term. A professional will be able to provide you with skincare services that are not available in store or over the counter. Regular facial treatments can be tailored to the specific needs of your skin as they evolve and are more comprehensive than a one size fits all treatment that you might use at home.
How To Treat Your Skin at Home
Your skincare provider will be able to recommend the appropriate professional skincare products for you to use on a daily basis that will support the professional treatments that you are receiving. The key to effectively healing your skin is consistency, therefore staying committed to a high quality skincare routine at home is essential to the success of your skincare journey.
It is important to remember that our skin is a living part of us and it requires care and consistency to achieve results when it comes to clearing and healing acne. Having the support of a professional is not only vital to the health of your skin but also as mental and emotional support as you embark on the journey of caring for your skin. They can advise you on products and treatments, of course. But, they can also remind you to trust the process and stick by your side as you show your skin the love it deserves by helping it heal and flourish.
