How to Get Rid of Pimples while Boosting Immune System

Thursday, October 22, 2020

     Let's admit that in almost 7 months of quarantine, our lifestyle has changed dramatically. We are all stressed and we cannot deny the fact that it affected us in so many ways. One aspect of our lives that we have given utmost importance is health. We all suddenly became health buffs and fitness enthusiasts because having a strong immune system these days is non-negotiable. But we must also give importance to another aspect that's affecting us mentally- stress! 

     The pandemic has instilled fear among us and whether we like it or not, we are always overthinking. This habit has contributed to our sleepless nights and hormonal imbalance that's why some of us are experiencing breakouts here and there. Another cause of nasty zits popping in our cheeks and jaw area is the use of a face mask. We are obliged to wear a face mask in public and the material or cloth used in face masks irritates our skin. Fret not because there are effective pimple treatments in the market today and I'm excited to present the first over-the-counter drug that is a clinically-tested and FDA-approved anti-acne and pimple treatment solution in the Philippines- Lactezin. Know more about this after the jump! 

How to Get Rid of Pimples while Boosting Immune System

     Were you experiencing pimple breakouts even before the pandemic started? If yes, I presume that you have tried different skincare products and topical ointments in the past. Luck is on your side if you were able to tame those nasty zits but for those who are still looking for a solution, I think it's time to address your problem by taking oral supplements. 

     I'm glad that we have Lactezin here because it's not only intended to lessen and treat pimples as it can also boost our immune system. So, to those who are looking for a supplement that treats pimples in no time, the long wait is over. 

What is Lactezin?

     It is a clinically-tested over-the-counter drug, which uses a natural antibacterial active ingredient Lactoferrin combined with Vitamin E and Zinc to help lessen pimples and give clear skin in as early as 2 weeks when taken 2x daily. It contains three powerful ingredients known to have pimple fighting action:
  • LACTOFERRIN- an iron-binding protein that has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps fight pimple-causing bacteria, reduces sebum and inflammation while enhances the body’s immune system.
  • VITAMIN E- an antioxidant that helps fight free radical skin damage. It helps protect the skin from the sun’s UV-induced photodamage and regulates collagen to help prevent skin dryness. These effects are known to maintain healthy skin cells. 
  • ZINC- an essential mineral that boosts and enhances the immune system. It has oil-regulating properties to help improve skin appearance. The anti-inflammatory effects help heal and rejuvenate the skin.

     Since we are talking about pimples here, there's one thing that is prevalent these days and that is called Maskne. It's a kind of breakouts under the face mask. According to Loma Linda Health University,
The medical term for “maskne” is acne mechanica, a skin condition brought on by prolonged wear of facial personal protective equipment. “Masks impose heat, friction and occlusion on the skin and when combined with a moist environment from breathing, talking or sweating, this is a recipe for breakouts,” Dao says. “Pores get clogged and can become pimples or acne cysts. On top of that, the prolonged occlusion, heat and sweat can cause the skin to become dry, itchy and raw.”

     Maskne is not a new phenomenon in the medical profession but has become more common amongst the population of face mask wearer. If you have oily and sensitive skin, chances are high that you'll be breaking out on the areas like cheeks, jaw, and neck. Prevention is always better than cure that's why following the simple skincare tips below to prevent mask irritation won't hurt.

1. Always wash your face before putting on your mask. Use a gentle cleanser that is oil and fragrance-free.

2. Don't forget to moisturize. The moisturizer hydrates your skin and will serve as a barrier between your face and your mask.

3. Avoid wearing makeup. As much as possible, skip your makeup as the residue will clog your pores and will soil your mask.

4. If you are using a cotton face mask, always wash it every after use. If you have access to an activated carbon disposal face mask, it's better than the regular surgical mask because it's hypoallergenic.

5. Stay away from harsh chemicals and choose fragrance-free soap.

6. Don't forget to stay hydrated and drink supplements that will boost your immune system. It's nice to know that there are supplements in the market today that prevents pimples and serves an anti-oxidant like Lactezin. It has Lactoferrin plus Vitamin E that promotes healthy skin cells and Zinc that helps fight bacteria and viruses.
