I have horrible skin, what can I do?

To have soft, smooth and luminous skin is everyone’s dream and it is not achieved overnight or kept over time. That skin that we dream about is one that only babies have, a virgin skin, a skin that has not been in contact with the cold of winter and the heat of summer, a skin that has not suffered from stress or food or even hormonal changes, so elastic that it always returns to its shape.

Over the years, we must take care of both our face and the rest of our body. We should know that the face is made up of several types of skins, hence we have to use several specific products for each area and each skin type.

Attaining beautiful skin can be an easy task if we focus on one of the most fundamental pillars: feeding our body so that vitamins and minerals are not lacking.

Without delving too much into the topic, we cannot forget the steps of cleaning, toning, exfoliation and hydration, along with food, to achieve healthy and youthful skin.

What to do if you have skin with…

  • ACNE

To combat acne, it is essential to begin with a deep cleaning of the pores to eliminate zits, pimples and blackheads. Acne can appear as pimples on the face, back and chest.

There are several appropriate treatments for acne of different types and severity. Regardless of the treatments, a clinical study and hormonal case should be done to determine the causes, the process that should follow and the duration.

Only after a correct evaluation should you begin treatment: topical or oral antibiotics, acids such as retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide, oral isotretinoin, among others.


Seborrheic dermatitis is a disease that causes the skin to peel. There are treatments such as seborregulador in shampoos, masks, cream and gel. It normally affects the scalp. It can affect:

  1. It is commonly known as dandruff among adolescents and adults.
  2. It is known as milk crust in babies.

Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition that usually affects the torso, face and scalp. Avoid scratching, do not use tissues or products that can irritate the skin, and use specific gels or creams to treat dermatitis on a daily basis.

How can I slow down the aging of my skin?

Natural pigmentation, sunspots, freckles and all types of hyperpigmentation can have different causes:

  • Natural aging
  • The radiation of the sun’s ultraviolet rays
  • Pregnancy (melasma)
  • Acne

Skin aging is the reflection of a biological age, which does not always correspond to chronological age and manifests itself over the years through visible marks such as wrinkles, sagging or spots. All of this will depend on certain genetic and external factors.

Currently, botulinum toxin (BOTOX) is a very safe medication. It is used in many medical, neurological, ophthalmological and other specialties, but has been popularized in aesthetic medicine. Botox is applied by injections in the area that you want to treat. The goal is to paralyze the muscle and block certain nerves so that they do not mark wrinkles. It eliminates occasional wrinkles temporarily. In addition, there are various treatments such as vitamins, plasma, hyaluronic acid and other aesthetic medicine techniques without the need for surgery.
