Let’s face it, when it comes to dating, clear beautiful skin is a must, but how can you ensure you’re putting your best face forward? In recognition of June’s Acne Awareness Month, Suneva Medical has teamed up with Zoosk and celebrity dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban to bring you awesome tips for achieving date-ready skin.
June’s Acne Awareness Month is the perfect time to kick start your journey to better skin. Who wouldn’t want to say goodbye to acne (and those scars it can leave behind) for good? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
• Adopt a Daily Routine—good skin is a daily commitment and should be part of a morning and evening routine. Consumers should cleanse their face twice daily and after perspiration, and get regular fresh air and exercise.
• Explore Treatment Options—with innovations constantly hitting the market, people who suffer from acne and acne scars are encouraged to see a physician who can review the latest treatments that can improve their complexion. From spot treatments for acne to Bellafill®, a long-lasting, simple in-office facial acne scar correction with minimal to no downtime, a physician can advise on what’s best for an individual’s unique case.
• Know Fact from Fiction—There are many acne and acne scar myths. Tanning and exposure to UV rays do not help get rid of acne scars or clear up acne. Another common myth is that acne scars are not treatable, which for many is no longer the case thanks to modern science and skin care innovations. Also, stress and hormones may be a factor in acne occurrences, but there are no clinical studies that have been able to definitively prove this link. Finally, acne scars are not only a cosmetic and physical problem. In an independent study, more than 70% of respondents felt their acne scars negatively impacted their self-confidence, with 92% indicating self-confidence would be restored or improved if their acne scars were healed.
