Mandelic acid in the right strength and routine works wonders.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Mandelic's properties are antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, exfoliating, and antifungal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another big win for inflamed acne is the use of ICE and BPO which are highly effective when used correctly in your daily routine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Not only does the skin love LED which is low-level light therapy (=LLLT). I love what it does for the skin, as well as the body. The benefits are huge in many different scenarios.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
LED light therapy increases the production of ATP (=adenosine triphosphate), or cellular energy, by the mitochondria in the cells that are compromised or injured, and enables these cells to function as nature intended.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
LED light therapy is widely used when treating acne or addressing ageing concerns to name a few applications.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
LED light therapy decreases the inflammatory response and increases local circulation which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues to increase healing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the treatment of acne, LED light therapy is highly effective as it helps accelerate tissue repair, kills acne-causing bacteria, reduces oil secretion, decreases inflammation, and improves the overall skin tone and texture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember to enhance your recovery after any facial or skincare treatment with LED light therapy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We are all familiar with the hormonal effects during puberty, and pregnancy to mention a few.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now on the flip-side of the coin. How about as we age?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As one matures the skin becomes more fragile as it thins, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and it becomes drier with respect to the changes in its oil production, hydration levels, and loss of elasticity which shows up as sagging skin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's wise to be proactive with your daily health and wellness through all the decades of life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hormones are chemical messengers and affect all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stress exerts a huge impact on acne because the body will suffer at its weakest point.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stress in the acne-prone results with a new batch of inflamed pimples immediately or soon after the stressor.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why is that?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bear in mind that stress stimulates cortisol production which in turn causes inflammation and increased oil production.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's important and extremely beneficial to manage expected and unexpected stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The resulting "capsule" is a solid, dome-shaped lesion found on the skin's surface and extends deep into the skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Scarring is very common with nodules.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nodules can fester and flare repeatedly when any portion of the impaction remains in the pore.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
