Now that we said goodbye to the mask, we thought we were rid of acne pimples. But now they reappear under the effect of stress! Here are some home solutions to take care of your skin, to combine with a healthy diet to maintain healthy skin.
Acne is probably the most common skin disease. Teenagers are certainly the most affected due to hormonal changes. But in the past two years, prolonged mask wear has also contributed to an increase in the number of people affected by acne. And now, in addition to hormones and “mascné”, stress in turn causes pimples to break out!
“Faced with stress, the body produces hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. A defense mechanism necessary for survival which nevertheless unbalances the body. Despite our good will, we find ourselves powerless” underlines Dr. Nina Roos , dermatologist and author of Healthy skin (ed. Solar). If it is not always easy to regain the upper hand over stress, it is possible to act on its consequences.
“Know, for example, that to wash your face, a micellar lotion is not enough if you have acne. Choose a foaming cleansing gel. Don’t be afraid, either, of drying out pimples with a scrub” advises Dr. Roos. “Also watch your diet. When we are stressed, we tend to eat more fat, more sugar. This is comforting at the time, but has a real impact on our skin. A vicious circle which is difficult to escape. ‘extract”.
Try, somehow, to be in a dynamic of control. Put yourself in the sport, be sure to sleep well because lack of sleep makes you more vulnerable to stress.
“Be aware, finally, that a dermatologist is not there to judge you. If you feel bad about yourself, do not hesitate to ask him for an acne treatment. There is no threshold of buttons to reach to be prescribed a drug”.
>> Are probiotics to treat acne effective? The track of probiotics in the treatment of acne seems promising. But there is, to date, no large-scale study that proves their effectiveness. It would be interesting to dig into the subject and to have feedback from patients. Be that as it may, we must not forget that this problem is multifactorial. Probiotics cannot replace more comprehensive care. Acne is treated on a case-by-case basis. A rigorous questioning of the person on his hygiene and his way of life, on his beauty routine, is necessary in order to adapt the treatment according to the real causes of the problem. It is enough, in certain cases, to change cosmetics, to reduce the tobacco or to take care of its food, to see an improvement. Some patients, on the other hand, need further treatment.
What do you eat when you have an acne breakout?
- Zinc-rich foods which cause sebum secretion to drop: oysters, liver, shellfish, eggs.
- Foods rich in Omega-3 exerting an anti-inflammatory action and promoting healing: rapeseed, camelina, walnut oils; oily fish (sardines, herring, anchovies, etc.).
- antioxidants that protect skin cells from inflammation: citrus fruits, tomato, green cabbage, parsley, broccoli, turnip, carrot, sweet potato…
- Pollen curesrich in zinc, calcium, soufre…
- Fewer processed foodsfast sugars (pastries, sweets, etc.), fried foods, cold meats, cow cheeses.
But beware, if the acne is severe or has psychological repercussions, it is important to consult a dermatologist for appropriate treatment.
