 Grandma is not always right: how folk remedies can harm problem skin

No matter how far ahead medicine and cosmetology go, “grandmother's recipes” Acne treatments continue to find their adherents.
Rivka Zaydeh, owner of a clinic specializing in solving acne problems and author of a unique treatment method, uses the example of popular folk methods to explain which ones can give temporary relief, some to be useless, and some to do, harm problem skin and aggravate acne.
Ice– We take an ice cube from the refrigerator and a clean paper towel or clean gauze and apply it to the pimple with light movements. This grandmother's medicine is quite approved by doctors, as the cold of ice constricts blood vessels, reduces blood flow to inflammation and reduces swelling. But this is only a temporary improvement, it is not a substitute for treatment, especially in severe cases. And one more important point, before this procedure, it is necessary to thoroughly cleanse the skin, otherwise additional harm can be done.
Turmeric– In recent years, turmeric has been credited with miraculous powers in alternative medicine, and even many conventional physicians recognize its many virtues as a substance rich in antioxidants. Turmeric has been used to stop bleeding and disinfect wounds since ancient times, and there is evidence of turmeric being used as a cure for various skin conditions for thousands of years. From turmeric and honey, which is known as an antibacterial agent, for example, they make a healing mask. It is very important to remove this mask well because if you do not cleanse your face properly, the acne will worsen – in addition to being antibacterial, honey is sticky and can leave a mark on the skin and, in combination with turmeric powder, this will clog pores and cause acne.
Tan– in small doses, the sun's rays have a bactericidal effect on the skin, vitamin D is produced, which helps to dry out excess sebum, so the inflammatory process can temporarily slow down and the skin will visually even look better. However, the sun's rays dry out moisture from the skin and disrupt its natural protective barrier and the skin's water balance. The skin begins to “defend” and produce an increased amount of sebum, which leads to clogged pores and inflammation. So when you go out into the Israeli sun, use an oil-free sunscreen that will protect not only from the sun's rays, but also from pigmentation and additional acne.
Dental pasta – at best, this remedy will not help you, at worst, severe irritation may occur on the skin. Most toothpastes in their formula contain alcohol, menthol, soda, which dry out the skin… but often overdry and violate the natural protection of the skin, which leads to excessive production of sebum, clogged pores and new breakouts.
Coconut< /strong> oil– just contraindicated for problem skin. The reason for this is very simple: while coconut oil acts as a lotion that maintains excellent moisture and can be beneficial for other parts of the body or for people who do not suffer from acne, coconut oil also has the ability to clog pores due to its ingredients and actually creates acne. disrupting the natural oil balance of the skin. Therefore, it is not always worth listening to your grandmother.
