How to Help the Affects That the Pill Has On Your Skin

15th May 2013

Acne is a common skin condition during puberty and as a result, many teenagers are keen to find the best solution to treat their spots. The birth control pill can improve both inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne for girls and women, however, these contraceptive pills have not been medically approved to specifically treat acne. It's helpful to bear in mind that some pills can have a more positive effect on acne than others, but this all depends on an individual's skin type. Hormonal changes caused by the birth control pills can lead to an increase in acne and dry flaky skin on the face skin shortly after a woman starts or stops taking them.

The reason for acne being so prevalent in teenage skin is down to a number of reasons. Firstly, puberty increases oil production leading to excess sebum that can clog the pores. The increased production of the male sex hormone androgen in the body can also be another contributing factor. Acne can be psychologically distressing to your self-esteem and here at sk:n we use the latest treatments to help those affected by acne to regain their desired clear complexion. Microdermabrasion is a safe alternative to the pill that doesn't involve hormones. It's an exfoliating treatment which uses microcrystals to unclog pores, remove dry flaky skin on the face and fade acne scars.

We often hear people ask 'does Microdermabrasion work?'. We can assure you yes with it being one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments and is ideal even for those with sensitive skin. The facial treatment works in harmony with your body to replace the dead and tired cells, which promotes healthier looking skin. If you want to know more about Microdermabrasion, make sure to get treated at a reputable clinic with skin specialists who can tailor the treatment to your skin.
