July Tip Of The Month
Body Acne

The Truth about Acne
Acne is caused by a number of different factors, and is not limited to oily skin patients. Patients with dry/sensitive or normal skin types may have acne symptoms too. One driver of acne is the skin trying to protect itself. When the skin barrier is damaged, the skin reacts by creating inflammation and producing more oil (sebum). The inflammation and excess sebum creates the perfect environment for bacteria and yeast to grow, causing infection and leading to acne.

What makes body acne unique?
The amount of sebum produced in the skin on your body, as opposed to your face, differs. Keep­ing the barrier healthy requires a product that is specifically suited for the needs of those areas. Additionally, the skin on your body is usually covered with clothing. Often clothing is washed with fabric softeners or dryer sheets that can leave a waxy residue on the skin. Particularly during hot summer months, the extra production of sweat can lead to damp clothing - another perfect environment for bacteria and yeast to grow.

Did you know?

Loofahs and bath sponges harbor bacteria that contribute to the symptoms of acne. Plus, scrubbing with them will actually damage the skin barrier, aggravating inflammation in the skin which may worsen acne symptoms.

How Epionce Can Help
Lytic Gel Cleanser
Cleanses the skin surface without stripping key oils necessary to keep the skin barrier healthy. It also helps reduce bacteria and microbes on the skin, cleans out the pores and smooth’s skin texture.

Purifying Toner
Has anti-bacterial properties and helps with oil control. It is particularly great for back acne due to the convenient spray pump, as acne on the back can be difficult to reach for application of topical products.

Lytic Tx (or Lytic for skin type)
Helps reduce the surface bacteria, microbes and yeast on the skin that is known to lead to acne. It also helps clear pores while smoothing skin texture, and has anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce redness found in inflamed acne lesions.
