Comedones and breakouts

Introduction

There are many different sorts of acne and other skin problems that you’re likely to run into in regular life, and all of them are irritating and unsightly. One of the most common types are comedones, which you’re likely to encounter when you’re dealing with other skin conditions. But what causes comedones and how do you get rid of comedones? Read on to find out more!

What are comedones?

Comedones are small bumps on your skin, usually on your chin and forehead. These occur when you’re dealing with general acne outbreaks, and they can be unsightly and annoying. There are two main types of comedones: blackheads and whiteheads. Blackheads are open comedones, with a dark color at the top, while whiteheads are closed and have white or flesh-colored tips.

Generally, comedones are caused by trapped hair follicles. That means that some dead skin cells have been trapped in the spot where a hair follicle is trying to grow, leading to clogging up and swelling of the are. It’s most common in adults with oily skin and smokers, as well as those who consume a lot of dairy products or fats and sugars in their diet.

How to deal with comedones

Treating comedonal acne can be annoying. The best way to deal with this is to go straight to the source and prevent your skin from producing too much sebum, which is a major cause of trapped hair follicles and comedones. That means that many standard over the counter medications might not be enough to make a major difference. Misumi Skincare makes a range of natural premium skincare products that can make an enormous difference to your skin health, dealing with comedones and breakouts quickly and easily.

Most of these products are applied directly onto the skin of your face, clearing up your skin by removing the outer layer of your skin and stripping away blockages. That sounds harsh, but it can be very effective, and all of the products on offer from Misumi Skincare are entirely safe and natural in their formulation.

Comedonal acne can be frustrating to deal with on your own, so seeing a professional healthcare provider for advice is an important part of the process if you’re having major problems. It’s going to take time for any treatment to have a major impact on your skin, and even then you’re going to have to keep treating it over time. Comedonal acne can be treated, but not cured, and new breakouts of comedones are always possible, even after you’ve cleaned up one outbreak.

Conclusion

Dealing with comedones and breakouts can be annoying. There are options, but you may find that it takes a little while to find the right product for your skin in order to clear it up effectively. You’re going to have to be prepared to deal with future breakouts, unfortunately, as the skin types that cause comedones can be treated rather than cured, and there is no permanent solution to this.

Beauty Experts Angelo David and Jacob Guttman Introduce The Flex Brush™: The Ultimate Detangling Brush for Wet and Dry Hair


The Ultimate Detangling Brush for Wet and Dry Hair

World-renowned celebrity hair stylist Angelo David Pisacreta, owner of the elite Angelo David Salon in New York City, and hair-tool veteran Jacob Guttman, founder and CEO of Creative Pro Hair Tools, introduce The Flex Brush—an all-purpose tool that safely detangles hair, massages the scalp and promotes health and hair growth. The brush’s versatility, combined with its flex technology, make it the most forgiving hair brush on the market.

The Flex Brush, designed for both wet and dry hair, bends to follow the contours of your head, massaging your scalp and stimulating the production of natural oils. The brush has vents that allow heat to pass through it, so blow drying won’t damage the brush. For ultimate detangling, pair it with Flex Detangle Spray, a revolutionary leave-in conditioner that increases flexibility to minimize damage during styling and detangling. Here is what sets The Flex Brush apart from other brushes on the market:

·         It is the most versatile brush on the market, so whether your hair is curly, fine, delicate or thick—or if you have extensions or a sensitive scalp—The Flex Brush is your go-to hair tool.

·         The Flex Brush is made from all-natural rubber, and the coating has a soft-touch finish that’s comfortable and easy to grip.

·         The Flex Brush is vented and super lightweight, so it can be used while blow drying. Air can pass freely through the integrated vents, resulting in much faster drying times.

·         Thanks to its flexibility, The Flex Brush gives your scalp a soothing massage that increases the blood supply to your hair’s follicles. Increased circulation helps increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients that are essential for growing strong, healthy hair.

·         The Flex Brush is especially great for detangling children’s hair. Unlike traditional brushes, it flexes to avoid snagging on tough knots, so there’s no pain. Plus, you get damage-free detangling on all hair types, whether hair is wet or dry.

I had the opportunity to try the Flex Brush and am quite impressed with how well it works! It really is great for detangling your hair! I highly recommend!

The Flex Brush is the creation of two of the most innovative minds in beauty: Angelo David, owner and creative director of the elite Angelo David Salon in New York City, and Jacob Guttman, founder and CEO of Creative Pro Hair Tools. While on the beach in Aruba, Angelo was disturbed watching people destroy their hair, as they yanked rigid brushes through knots, tearing ends and destroying roots. He contacted Jacob and together they designed The Flex Brush—an all-purpose tool that detangles safely, massages the scalp and promotes hair health and growth. It is designed for both wet and dry hair.

The Flex Brush comes in three variations:

The Flex Brush Petite Mixed Bristle for SRP $19.95

The Flex Brush XL Nylon Bristle for SRP $19.95

The Flex Brush XL Mixed Bristle for SRP $25.95

The Flex Detangle Spray is available in two sizes:

the 2 oz bottle for SRP $6.95

the 8 oz bottle for SRP $17.95
