Facial acne is a problem that most of us have experienced throughout our lives. While some of us may have only struggled with it during our teenage years, others continue to wrestle with these pesky pimples throughout our lives.
To make matters worse, the new norm of mask-wearing has resulted in red ‘maskne’ bumps for even the best of us.
Understanding your Acne
To ensure that we can enjoy healthy skin with minimal breakouts for the long term, we need to manage it from its root causes.
Acne is commonly caused by a combination of genetics, sebum and dead skin cells build up and hormone fluctuations. Our pores naturally produce sebum which emerges to moisturise our skin’s surface. Improper skincare can lead to dead skin cells and dirt to build up within the pore, causing congestion to form.
This congestion creates the perfect breeding ground for p.acne bacteria – a bacteria responsible for causing inflammation and irritation of the pore – to thrive. All this leads to your skin becoming irritated and inflamed; these pimples are screaming for help!
Porcelain’s Cult-Favourite Acne Facial
At the top of the list, we have our award-winning Quintessential™ treatment. This is the extraction facial treatment for more acute facial acne. Every extraction therapist in Porcelain undergoes a minimum of 500 hours of training to ensure absolute precision when conducting extractions. Additionally, the Quintessential’s extractions go deeper than most others, thoroughly cleansing congested pores.
While seemingly intense, the 120-minute-long procedure promises a deep cleanse to decongest and smoothen your skin texture!
With the deep extractions, do not be alarmed by the redness that occurs in the next 1-2 days. Just remember to sufficiently hydrate and protect your skin with SPF to ensure a proper recovery. To prevent further congestion or inflammation, avoid wearing make up for the next 3-5 days.
