Case Summary  |  Sensitive Young Adult Skin


Condition Skin Acne
Case Description

Throughout high school, college, and the recent years after college, I have had a lot of stress and a busy lifestyle. This increased amount of stress contributed to acne developing and worsening. When I was lazy and went to bed without washing my face, it would be obvious the next day or two with new white heads and pimples showing up on my face. I tried all different kinds of skin care products throughout the years including Neutrogena, Clearasil, Aveeno, Clean 'n Clear, organic soaps, and recently Olay. I came across the Olay website that allows you to personalize your skin care routine and target the problems you face. This provided me with specific products to use for my skin problems: particularly, the acne, black heads, and oily or dry skin. I now make sure to moisturize my face everyday with a lotion containing sunscreen. I also use the poor scrubber every couple days and wash my face daily with the salicylic acid face soap. I have found that this skin care routine, in addition to eating a healthier diet and managing my stress more effectively has improved the appearance of my skin.

I found that much of my acne and skin irritation was related to improper handling of stress. Methods of relieving stress decreased acne break outs. Also, being lazy with my skin care routine, i.e. not washing my face before going to sleep, prompted acne development.
