KO Series–Acne Therapy Solution
Do you know that stress could cause acne? Yes, I am human. Like everyone else I also face some up and down time in my life. Previous month have been tough on me, and thanks to that I developed some acne. On top of that, being a beauty blogger I have to try on many product to test the effectiveness. Some of the product does not suit my skin and end up giving me some break out.. Oh my! That’s why it is very important for me to try out every single items before I share it to my readers. That’s the main purpose I open up my blog in the first place. So, others would have more insight before purchasing a product.
To cut the story shot, with all the acne happening.. I decided to treat it using this product by KO cosmetic. It is their Acne Therapy Solution. It is amazing how it does help to improve my skin condition. The secret is in its ingredients benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. If you are looking for acne treatment, it would be very wise to have the ingredients in. why?
Salicylic Acid Benefits
Salicylic acid can exfoliate the skin as well as decrease inflammation. The cells in the lining of the hair follicles of people with acne tend to multiply quickly, and stick to one another. Salicylic acid works by dissolving this cement that holds those sticky cells together in the clogged pores. Most effective acne treatments can make skin a bit red and inflamed while the skin adjusts to them. This ingredient is unique because it's very effective at fighting acne, but it has a soothing, calming effect on skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of this ingredient are not surprising, given its close chemical relationship to one of the most well-known anti-inflammatory drugs available, acetylsalicylic acid.
Problems can arise when high concentrations of salicylic acid are applied to a large area of skin for a long period of time. When this occurs, something called salicylate toxicity can occur. That being said, the concentrations of salicylic acid found in over-the-counter products designed to treat blemishes (and the dark marks they leave behind) are too low to cause trouble. Some over-the-counter wart treatments, on the other hand, have much higher concentrations of salicylic acid, so you wouldn’t want to spread those all over your body! Levels of salicylic acid found in products designed to clear your complexion are usually very well tolerated. They almost never cause irritation or peeling when used once or twice a day.
Benzoyl Peroxide Benefits
Benzoyl peroxide is a powerful ingredient that is effective against all kinds of acne lesions (blackheads, whiteheads, and big red pimples). It is bactericidal, meaning it kills bacteria, rather than simply slowing down their growth. It also works very quickly, improving acne as early as five days after starting treatment. Its a great first line treatment for acne, but its also helpful to use in combination with antibiotics. In fact, benzoyl peroxide has the ability to prevent antibiotic resistance! So, if you have a severe acne condition do consult doctor to get your antibiotic prescribed.
One thing to watch out for with benzoyl peroxide is that it can bleach dark fabrics. Be sure to apply the benzoyl peroxide after you pull that dark sweater over your face! It can also cause drying, peeling, and redness if it is not delivered in the right amount, surrounded by the right mix of ingredients.
Personally, I like that this product really does what it claimed. I also like the fact that it comes in this tube container ass it is easier to do a spot treatment. I noticed that my active acne heal faster once I use this product. To compare with the products I used before, It is a clear gel and absorb quite fast and it does not leave the sticky after effect. This product is currently retailing at RM112 for 20gram. If you would like to make a purchase, I would recommend for you to check out their fb and website to look for promotion and discount.
