adult acne with anti-aging moisturizers
By: Paul Resnick, Niora
Softening the skin and relieving wrinkles with anti-aging moisturizers is
becoming a welcome and effective method of treating acne. To date there is a
large and growing number of people, especially adult women, who have benefited
from new techniques that not only reduce acne but also improve aging skin.
There is connection between anti-aging and acne. In the 1970ís two
Dermatologists, Dr. Eugene Van Scott, and Dr. Albert Klingman begin
investigating vitamin A as an alternative to benzoyl peroxide for the treatment
of acne. Benzoyl peroxide is the active ingredient in most over-the-counter acne
remedies. such as Proactiv, Clearasil and others. Dr Klingman eventually
developed Retin A, a derivative of vitamin A, and Dr. Van Scott began working
with the structurally similar Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). Neither of these
researchers attracted much attention until it was noted that women using these
substances for acne were experiencing a reduction in skin wrinkling. Retin A and
AHAs quickly became most widely used anti-aging skin care ingredients worldwide.
Acne and Wrinkling share the same problematic skin condition: excessive
undetached dead skin tissue building up on the skinís surface. This stiffens the
skin. Wrinkles result because a less flexible outer layer of skin creases the
underlying growing tissue. The skin thus increasingly grows into deeper and more
pronounced lines. Acne results when this dead skin tissue clogs pores and
inhibits the normal passage of oils and moisture, causing whiteheads or
blackheads and eventually pimples. Both AHAs and Benzoyl peroxide, however, can
relieve this condition by exfoliating this dry outermost layer of the skin.
The problem is that benzoyl peroxide, while it is effective in removing oil,
dries out the skin thus increasing the amount of dead skin tissue on the surface
of the skin. This in turn clogs pores. For most women however, using
moisturizers to relieve this dryness is not an option. The oils and waxes used
in moisturizers aggravate acne because they compound pore blockage.
Several companies have worked to solve this problem and have developed
moisturizers for acne prone skin. Murad and Olay have developed a number of
products. At Niora, we have worked to solve this problem by creating
moisturizers formulated with specially emulsified jojoba oil. Jojoba oil, while
intensely moisturizing, is a fine oil with a far smaller molecular weight than
sebum, or skin oil. Jojoba penetrates these heavier skin oils, unclogging pores
and dissolving nascent blackheads and whiteheads. Because of Nioraís
emulsification process, dissolved sebum and excess oils rinse free leaving the
skin soft and clean.
These lighter moisturizers can be blended with alpha hydroxy acids, which in
turn exfoliate the skin and work to prevent excessive tissues from building,
back up in the pores. Typically these types of exfoliating cleansers must be
used daily to be effective, but they replace normal moisturizers and cleansers
and fit easily into most skin care regimes.
These new skin care products thus offer the best of both worlds: an effective
acne treatment that moisturizes the skin and reduces wrinkling. To date
thousands of women have successfully used these new products demonstrating that
the best acne treatment might well be anti-aging skin care.
