Boosting Your Acne Care Routine

young girl with acne problematic skinSuffering from an acne breakout can be an embarrassing ordeal. Few things can make you want to hide more than having unsightly blemishes that seem to get bigger the longer you stare at them. The many over-the-counter acne treatments that promise relief but rarely deliver the desired results can add to the stress and frustration you experience. If you’re at your wit’s end trying to solve the puzzle of your acne, our office can help. Dr. Tarbet has a unique skincare program formulated to help meet your needs. Here are a few tips to help with your skincare and some treatments our office provides.

Resist The Urge to Touch Your Face

Acne can be itchy, painful, and embarrassing, increasing your temptation to pick, squeeze, or pop your blemishes. Although you may want to do everything you can to rid yourself of the problem, constantly touching your face only worsens the situation. Our hands touch hundreds of surfaces daily, many carrying dirt and bacteria. By touching your face constantly, you expose your skin to acne-inducing bacteria, making your acne worse. 

Don’t Scrub

Acne-prone skin can be greasy and oily, making you tempted to scrub it, so it feels cleaner. Although you may believe that scrubbing is the best way to get rid of dirt and oil, it isn’t the best idea. Acne-prone skin is sensitive, and vigorous scrubbing can cause irritation and inflammation, making the issue worse. Gently wash your face twice daily, and avoid vigorously scrubbing to reduce irritating skin.

Products Dr. Tartbet Offers

If you’ve tried every acne product available with no success, Dr. Tarbet’s unique system may help. 

Some store-brand products can contain acne-inducing chemicals. Dr. Tarbet’s products are a system of prescription medications designed to tackle the root causes of acne. One of the medications provided is a hydrating cleanser that contains natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Pro-vitamin B5, and Green Tea extract. These ingredients serve as natural skin cleaners that promote healthy skin and cell regeneration. Another essential part of Dr. Tarbet’s system is the Rosacea silicone gel that helps reduce red markings on your skin that acne leaves behind, allowing your skin to appear more vibrant and healthy.

These are just a few parts of Dr. Tarbet’s skin care system. If you wish to find skin care products that fit your needs, don’t hesitate to call our Bellvue office. Schedule your consultation by calling us today at 425-455-2131.
