The Difference Between Dry And Oily Acne | Shinagawa Aesthetics Blog

The Difference Between Dry And Oily-Acne

For a lot of people, acne is one of the most common and difficult skin conditions to be treated. Even dermatologists and aestheticians admit to being challenged in terms of treating acne problems of a number of their patients.

When you break out, those nasty and annoying blemishes are a combination of dead skin cells, bacteria, and oil. Those with oily skin have excess oil on the surface, making it the perfect breeding ground for breakouts. Yet, surprisingly, even people with dry skin can get acne.

So, what is the difference between oily acne and dry acne and what is causing that to happen?

As we know, oily skin is more susceptible to acne because of all of the excess oil that sits on top of the skin. The acne flame is fueled by oil, meaning that if you don’t use products that help reduce excess oil, acne will be more difficult to prevent and treat.

Both salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are effective in the treatment of acne. Salicylic acid exfoliates and works like a mop to absorb excess oil and remove the dead skin cells that cover the breakouts. This makes the extraction process much easier and more comfortable for clients. It also has antibacterial properties which are essential to treating and controlling acne.

On the other hand, benzoyl peroxide works by forcing oxygen into the pores and killing bacteria. Bacteria cannot survive in the presence of oxygen – therefore making benzoyl peroxide the perfect ingredient for killing that bacteria and reducing breakouts on the skin.

But having dry skin and acne can be a very frustrating situation to deal with too.

The main ingredients that are used to treat acne can be very drying for any client, but especially for those who already struggle with dry skin. When the skin is dry, the barrier function is not working properly and allows for transepidermal water loss. This makes the skin even drier and can allow bacteria to spread, causing more breakouts. It is important to rebalance the skin with the appropriate oils and lipids to ensure a healthy barrier, especially for clients with dry skin.

Most of the time, clients actually create the problem by stripping their skin, which leads to dryness and an intact barrier. This can happen by simply overdoing their skincare routine.

Having both a gentle cleanser, as well as one that has active ingredients, is important so you are not over drying the skin. Clients can also over exfoliate with the use of abrasive facial scrubs or even over using a facial brush like the Clarisonic. You really only need to be exfoliating the skin two-to-three times a week.

When you exfoliate, the naturally occurring lipids or oils on the skin are being taken off; when it’s overdone, the face will overcompensate and produce more oil.

In short, acne is a frustrating skin condition to deal with, whether clients have dry or oily skin.

Make sure that they are always using their recommended products and that they are using them regularly. They will get the best results with a routine. Remember, less is more when using professional skin care products and treatments.

At Shinagawa Aesthetics, our well-experienced dermatologists know the best treatments and products that can most certainly treat your acne.

  3. Reduces Heartburn – Regular exercise, especially less stressful aerobic types like swimming and walking, reduce the severity of acid reflux or heartburn. And reducing heartburn can also help you sleep better.
  4. Improves Chronic Pain – Losing weight is critical to improving chronic pain since the more weight you carry, the more pressure and pain to your joints and bones you’ll experience. Exercise also reduces pain because it reduces inflammation and your weight, of course.
  5. Reduces Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease – A study showed that daily exercise significantly reduces the risk for Alzheimer’s, even if —get this— you start exercising after the age of 80.
  6. Better Sleep – Regular exercise helps you sleep better, provided it’s not done within 2 to 3 hours of bedtime. Exercise can also reduce and sometimes eliminate sleep apnea, a frustrating and potentially health-threatening sleep disorder that causes disruptions in breathing.
  7. More Energy – Many studies show that exercise, even just a few times a week, boosts energy. And morning exercisers reap the biggest benefit.
  8. More Happiness – If you’ve heard of “runner’s high,” then you know that exercise makes people happy. That’s because exercise boosts mood-enhancing or feel-good endorphins.
