Topical Treatments versus Supplements

Posted by on

Topical VS Supplements? Which Acne treatment is better for your skin? Do you feel like you're ‘beating your head against the wall’ with your current acne treatment? Well for many years, topical treatments were the standard protocol for treating acne, where one would just go to the doctors and walk away with a prescription hoping to clear their blemishes. However with all the advancements in skin care ingredients today, topical treatments aren’t they only option for achieving clear, blemish free skin. There are more natural treatments to treat your acne such as supplements that effectively achieve the same results but ‘’naturally’’. So which treatment is the best to clear your acne? Topical treatments Topical treatments are the fastest way to deliver active ingredients to your acne. However they can also be quite harmful to your skin. For many decades the standard for treating acne has been the use of benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide works by helping remove excess oil from the skin and help kill bacteria that causes your acne. Sounds great right? Benzoyl peroxide can be effective but often acts as a ‘’band aid’ for short term relief and oh did I forget to mention the side effects? Yes that’s right, when using benzoyl peroxide, it can irritate your skin, by making it inflamed, itchy and extremely dry where it becomes flaky and starts to peel off. And since benzoyl peroxide strips all the oil from your skin, making it not only tight and brittle but causing your skin to age quicker due to the loss of moisture and collagen. Remember that healthy skin should not be too dry or too oily. But there are more alarming reasons to stop using benzoyl peroxide period! Kills the good and bad bacteria Since Benzoyl peroxide is an ‘’on the go’’ antibacterial ingredient, it rapidly kills bacteria (keep in mind bacteria is a primary promoter of acne). Now I know what you’re thinking, doesn’t killing bacteria sound great? Well, the problem is that benzoyl peroxide can't tell the difference between good and bad bacteria, so it attacks all bacteria in the same way. And since benzoyl eliminates the good bacteria that lives on your skin, it can actually cause you more harm by leaving you defenseless to infections. Can cause sun sensitivity & whitening effect Benzoyl peroxide can cause photosensitivity, which makes your skin particularly sensitive to the sunlight. Without the use of any sunscreen, your skin can become prone to sunburns, yikes! Benzoyl peroxides also contains strong bleaching properties, meaning if it comes into contact with your hair or clothes it can strip the colour causing it to have the ‘’whitening effect’’ Not effective on severe acne If you have a more serious acne, using any treatment solutions containing benzoyl peroxide will be ineffectual. Topical care treatments fail to factor that hormones and other internal factors affect acne and those can’t be fixed with creams. And if you have sensitive skin you could potentially damage your skin long term. Fortunately, there is a more natural and safer treatment that effectively fights acne without damaging side effects of benzoyl peroxide. What is it? Keep on reading. Achieve the same results safely and naturally by taking SkinB5 supplements! Taking the right supplements can balance out your hormones and help you decrease your sebum production. But not all supplements are equal. Many supplements may have low-quality products and that can question whether you’re actually getting the right amounts of nutrients.
