Acne – worsen with cooler weather?


Living in a country with 4 seasons certainly takes its toll on one’s skin.  Just as our skin starts to acclimatize to one scenario, the weather changes and it is expected to adapt to a totally new setting.  The result is havoc on the body and the skin alike, resulting in sudden alterations to the skin.

When we are faced with colder weather, we are exposed to a number of factors such as cold winds, below 「0」 temperatures, and intense heat in our homes, offices and in our vehicles.  The result of these conditions leaves the skin feeling tighter due to a lack of hydration along with some dry patches which can result in clogging of the skin which can exacerbate acne flare ups.  Couple this with harsh and drying skin care products, and the result is a tragic acne flare-up.

Many acne skin care lines have been designed around the theory of destroying bacteria in a fast and aggressive manner.  This is alright if the products will only be used for a very short period of time.  However those that experience acne know that acne is not a one-time, short duration condition.  It is something we struggle with long term and is affected by several different factors.  On this note, I must share my experience with a product line I was introduced to in late 2015.

Before I continue, I will let you know that I had the most beautiful teenage skin around.  My skin was flawless.  In my mid 30』s after giving birth to my second son, I began to develop adult acne.  Months later, my skin was a total disaster.  I was embarrassed to go out in public, and my self confidence plummeted.  It was then that I truly realized what teens and a young adult face with their battle with acne.

I battled this condition on and off for many years.  I tried everything out on the market.  When I say everything, I mean everything, because I had access to all sorts of products being in the skincare industry myself.  It wasn’t until several months ago that I was introduced to Salcura Antiac Natural Skin Therapy.  This natural, gentle and chemical free product line is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin.  With no alcohol, antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, parabens and other harsh chemicals, it treats the skin using powerful plant extracts without compromising the skin in any way.  It reduces inflammation and redness, and creates an anti-bacterial and soothing effect on the skin.  The beauty of it is that it is non-damaging and non-drying to the skin making it the perfect year-round treatment thanks to Sea Buckthorn, with its wide spectrum of omega oils including 3,6,7 &9.  Due to these features, it is safe to use on a daily basis and for long term use in controlling acne flare-ups.
