SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR ACNE SCARS

 

Getting a restful and sound sleep is never simple and easy, as helpful as it is. What you need is to establish a skin care routine for acne scar that works best for your skin type and lifestyle. Consistent proper skin care should be done. Your ideal acne scar skin care routine depends on your skin tone and type as well as includes different components.

 

WHO DOESN’T WANT BEAUTIFUL SKIN?

Having a terrible skin all your life sucks and so does going through with acne. But don’t fret! You’re not alone in that journey. Banish was created as a skin care line which is based or made from natural and organic ingredients, focused on healing your skin both inside and out. Going through a lot of acne challenges and trying different products such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and sulfur ingredients is very tough. 

 

ROUTINE: THE BANISH WAY

 

  •  CLEANSE

 

 

I’ve been using Banish All Clear Mint Cleanser to wash my face. I personally like our cleanser because It is mild and made from organic aloe vera leaf, cucumber peel extract, glycerin, grapefruit, chamomile and a lot more organic ingredients. There is no sulfate in the cleanser. Sulfate is the ingredient in a lot of cleanser, shampoos, body washes and laundry detergent. This ingredient strips away the oils which is why I didn't want to put sulfate in our cleanser.

Pump a pea sized amount and massage onto your face in circular motions. This is like a lotion kind of liquid. Wipe off using a facial sponge or with a clean cloth or you may rinse off as well. Please avoid using around the eyes.

This cleanser leaves you with soft and clean skin. 

Ginger Essential Oil

It may seem a little bit surprising but ginger essential oil is known to be a powerful and useful tool to your overall health, especially your skin. Ginger essential oil is a concentrated oil extracted from fresh or dried ginger. This essential oil is a best form of oil to use as a medicine due to its higher concentration of gingerol and other organic compounds. It can also help rapidly relieve the pain, swelling and other discomfort on joints or other sore areas on the body.

Ginger essential oil can also be a cleansing agent for its antiseptic properties as it works perfectly in killing the bacteria causing acne and allows the skin to remain clean and acne free.

Peppermint

Peppermint oil can be your best friend with treating acne when it is used correctly. This naturally cleanses the skin with its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Peppermint oil has a cooling effect which soothes irritation and inflammation due to acne. This oil also helps reduce levels of acne causing bacteria to help treat pimples. It can also be a harmful irritant so it’s best to take care when using products containing this element or ingredient. Peppermint oil comprises about 30-50% menthol.

Spearmint

Spearmint has been said to be helpful for hormonal acne. Drinking spearmint tea helps keep you hydrated and help improve your skin.

With a pea sized amount of this all mint cleanser, massage it onto your face in circular motions. Banish All Mint Cleanser is a lotion kind of liquid. Wipe it off using a facial sponge or a clean cloth or you may opt for rinsing it off as well.

Avoid using this product around the eyes.

This product leaves you with a soft and clean skin.

 

  •  ROLLING AND STAMPING

 

Dermarolling is a skin care routine for acne scars that can be done at home but seriously needs to be monitored or done properly. Before derma rolling, be sure to use ice first as it helps to numb your face. This process is quite similar to an ice facial.

Ice facial is said to help tighten your pores and make you look or feel awake, especially before you go on your usual morning routine. This acne scar skin care routine may be beneficial to your skin, but there may be a lot of ugly truths or disadvantages about this as well.

An ice facial may hurt at the first try – just imagine having brain freeze, but the moment you get used to this old trick of acne scar routine, it won’t hurt to think of giving it another go. Another thing about this ice facial is that you get a frost-bitten glow where the ice acts as your toner to improve your skin texture. This skin care routine for acne scars also makes your pores less noticeable by other people in a sense that there will be less visible pores coming out on your cheeks. Doing an ice facial helps combat or reduce puffiness, acne and eye bags (possibly from stress). It also helps soothe inflammation and constricts the blood vessels to reduce redness and puffiness.

However, some dermatologists may discourage or take precautions against this kind of acne scar routine as certain skin conditions may be worsened by extreme temperatures. This is one of the disadvantages of ice facials. Prolonged use of ice as part of your acne scar skin care routine may increase the risk, especially if you have any skin injury. Do not use or place ice directly or frequently on your face as it may give you a frostbite (might as well put a cloth on it).

A container must be filled with alcohol, leaving the Banisher Roller for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing room for sanitation. Air dry the tool before using a paper towel to dry it up.

Roll over the Banisher on affected facial parts. This tool helps create micro wounds which trigger your skin to repair naturally on its own, as well as rebuilds collagen and elastin fibers (your skin’s foundation). Your new skin layer will push out the old and damaged ones which can cause scarring to fill in. Apply moderate pressure only.

Redness would appear after using the Banisher. However recovery time would vary on your skin type or skin condition.

The Banisher Stamp is another skin care tool which works the same as the Banisher Roller. Should you be suffering from active acne, rolling over it is not recommended as it would only cause the bacteria to spread around further and pop the pimples.

The bristles of the Banisher are made of titanium (a metal which is bacteria resistant), long lasting and are evenly distributed. Recommended use is 3-4 uses before discarding or replacing this tool as the needles may become dull and increase risk of infection to the skin from previous uses wherein dead skin cells can get stuck and build up on the Banisher.

  •  SERUM

 

 

Using the Banish Oil is recommended after derma rolling as a part of your acne scar skin care routine or practice to help treat your acne. This product has a 4% Vitamin C (which is a nutrient that your body needs for skin and health). This Vitamin C content is responsible for creating elastin and collagen and perfect for scars, hyperpigmentation and anti-aging. The Banish Oil can also serve as your moisturizer.

The Vitamin C Serum is to be used together with the Banisher, but it can also work well on its own as a stand-alone treatment. However, a higher percentage of Vitamin C can also be too harsh and cause damage by irritating the skin too much.

Pump this at least 3-4 times on your palm then apply it on your face for entire coverage. Use a napkin when applying Banish Oil. Press it to your skin so that the holes created would be filled with serum.

 

  •  REFRESH AND TONE

 

Last but not the least for your acne scar skin care routine would be the Vitamin C Beauty Elixir. This product of Banish helps deal with redness, hydrates and refreshes your skin and can even be used as a toner. Spray this on cotton pad then wipe on your face or you may spritz it (but not too close!)

You're going to spray it to seal in everything you've done. It adds moisture back into the skin, because our skin feels a little bit irritated from the Banisher.

Spray on the Vitamin C Beauty Elixir as a finishing touch for your skin care routine for acne scars. This helps to add moisture back to your skin.

 

HELPFUL HINTS

 

At least 8 hours is the allowable maximum time to heal and recover from rolling (should you want to apply makeup). It is recommended that this skin care routine for acne and acne scars be done before heading to bed. Applying this routine in the morning is discouraged as it would make you feel sticky and greasy.

There’s also a tendency for you to feel awkward when you go out as your face may still look a little red so the best time to apply this is during nighttime before your special occasion.
