Affordable and Quick Way to Control Acne Breakout
If you want to have a clear and pimple-free skin, you need to take a lot of effort and spend a lot of money to achieve it. Yes that’s the truth!
I already spent a lot of money visiting facial centers to help me in dealing with my acne breakout. I also have a long time problem that until now is still visible on my nose – sebaceous hyperplasia.
Acne breakout is one of the common skin problems that affects people of all ages and usually starts when kids reach puberty. They are formed when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Pimples, acne, blackheads and whiteheads can also be worsened or triggered by bacteria, hormonal change, diet, medication and stress.
My husband also suffered from acne breakout during his college days that sadly made his self esteem affected. And now that we have our own child, this is one of our problems that we don’t want him to suffer too. That’s why we are doing everything we can to help him in dealing with it.
My son started to have pimple problems as early as 10 years old (he is 13 now). We consulted with a dermatologist to get tips on what to do. Since he was still young at that time, the dermatologist just gave a cleanser and moisturizer to use that can only be bought from her clinic.
Visiting a dermatologist for check up and treatment requires you to spend thousands of pesos and with today’s situation, besides being not safe, it is not economical to do.
But, we cannot deny the fact that we should give attention to our pimple problems because if neglected it can worsen and be harder to treat and perhaps more costly.
Ren, my son, is now 13 years old and is still suffering from his pimples problem. He is more conscious now compared when he was 10. We don’t want this skin problem to affect his confidence in the future so as mentioned, we are helping him to get rid of it. I’m sure my husband and yours truly’s gene is one of the things to blame for it (sorry son).
As of now, here is his skin care routine to reduce acne breakout
1. Cleanse – he makes sure to clean his face before going to bed. He is using a cleanser with Salicylic acid
2. Toner – he uses an alcohol free toner with witch hazel
3. Moisturizer – he is using an aloe vera gel moisturizer after cleansing and toning.
4. Oral Supplement – He and I are both using Lactezin from Unilab as of the moment since I think we need to deal with our pimple problems from within. It is an over the counter pill which helps in controlling pimples production. It claims that you’ll have a clearer skin and will help lessen pimples as early as 2 weeks. My son is using it for a week now and I already saw improvements on his face.
Since it is not safe to visit facial centers these days and it is more expensive to do, we will stick for this skin care routine for now.
Lactezin Key Ingredients:
Lactezin is a clinically-tested over-the-counter drug, which uses a natural antibacterial active ingredient, Lactoferrin. Lactoferrin is actually found in human breast milk, and bodily fluids from the eye, nose, respiratory tract, and intestine. In addition, Lactoferrin is present in infant milk formulation to simulate the endogenous Lactoferrin from natural breast milk. It is an iron-binding protein that has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also enhances the body’s immune system. It helps to fight pimple-causing bacteria, reduces sebum and inflammation.
It has Vitamin E that is an antioxidant that helps fight free radical skin damage, helps protect skin from the sun’s UV-induced photo damage, regulates collagen and helps prevent skin dryness. Vitamin E helps maintain healthy skin cells.
Lastly, Lactezin has Zinc, an essential mineral that boosts and enhances the immune system. It has anti-inflammatory effects and helps heal and rejuvenate skin.
Who can take Lactezin?
They conducted clinical studies on adolescents ages 13 to 20 both male and female, and found that Lactezin can help treat acne and was well tolerated. Lactoferrin is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women in small amounts, according to WebMD, but then it is recommended that you consult your doctor before taking any medicine, including vitamins. Your doctor will be in the best position to advise what is the most suitable based on your age, health status and nutritional needs.
It is recommended that you take 1 capsule of Lactezin, twice a day, at least 8 to 14 hours apart.
It will take at least 2 weeks to see results. Based on clinical studies, best results are seen in 8 to 12 weeks. To possibly prevent recurrence, continue to take 2 capsules daily for maintenance.
How much is Lactezin?
The suggested retail price of Lactezin is Php 27.00 per capsule. You can buy Lactezin in all leading drugstores nationwide as well as health and personal care stores like Watsons. It is manufactured by Innovitelle, the personal care arm of Unilab which manufactures most of the leading over-the-counter drugs in pharmacies.
Overall, I recommend that you try this product if you are suffering from acne breakout. Based on our personal experience it is effective and more affordable.
