Skin-Care Company, Gleamin, on How to Identify & Treat Fungal Acne

There is a good deal of confusion regarding the difference between fungal acne and bacterial acne. In a recent blog post entitled Fungal Acne: Symptoms and Treatment, experts from skin-care company, Gleamin, explain how to identify fungal acne and treat it. Gleamin is a purveyor of innovative skin-care formulas, including their signature product, the Vitamin-C Clay Mask, made with 100% all-natural ingredients.

In the blog post, Gleamin’s experts emphasize that fungal acne requires an entirely different treatment regimen than bacterial acne. In fact, fungal acne is not truly acne; its scientific names are Malassezia Folliculitis and Pityrosporum Folliculitis, which refer to the yeast involved in triggering fungal acne. Not only will bacterial acne treatments have no impact on the condition colloquially known as fungal acne, they may even worsen the condition.

Fungal acne is triggered by an overgrowth of yeast on the skin. This overgrowth inflames hair follicles and leads to small acne-like bumps. Some immune-related causes of fungal acne outlined in the blog post include recent antibiotic use, propensity for yeast infections, a diet high in sugar and carbs, and a compromised immune system. Environmental factors that could cause fungal acne include a hot and humid climate, frequent workouts, and whether an individual has been in close contact with someone that has or previously had fungal acne.

Accurate identification of fungal acne is critical for successful treatment. According to the experts at Gleamin, these are the key identifiers of fungal acne that stand in contrast to bacterial acne.

Fungal Acne

  • Bumps are uniform in size and are generally very small.
  • No visible heads.
  • Fungal acne is almost always very itchy.
  • Bumps appear in clusters.

Bacterial Acne

  • Bumps vary in size.
  • Blackheads and whiteheads are common.
  • Bacterial acne can be itchy but not as severely as fungal acne.
  • Bumps appear randomly across the body.

Gleamin’s experts contend that the most foundational way to manage fungal acne is a lifestyle change. Because so many of the triggers for this condition are environmental, those afflicted should look to wear less tight clothing, shower soon after workouts, eat a healthy, well-balanced diet, and wash clothes after a single use. They also recommend using dandruff shampoo as a body wash and letting it sit on an affected area for five minutes before rinsing off, as well as over-the-counter creams, like those used to treat Athlete’s Foot.

Another product that can have a positive impact on fungal acne is Gleamin’s Vitamin-C Clay Mask. This product cleanses skin and removes any excess debris that may contribute to yeast growth. Additionally, the powerful antioxidants in the mask work with vitamin C to support immune health, detoxify the skin, and revitalize appearance. While lifestyle changes and certain products may be enough for many to manage their fungal acne, medical consultation with a dermatologist could be necessary for those with severe cases.

While managing fungal acne may seem daunting, it is entirely possible through the recommendations outlined by the experts at Gleamin.

Recharge Your Skin With Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge La Cure

Four weeks, four flacons – if Sisley has anything to do with it, that’s what it takes for visibly vibrant and renewed skin. For the first time, the French Maison has taken inspiration from research concerning the mechanisms of autophagy, which is the natural, regulated mechanism of the cell that removes unnecessary or dysfunctional components. This has led to a product capable of reactivating the cells’ vital energy at its source to combat the consequences of time better than ever before and to fully restore the skin’s vitality.

The new Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge La Cure, inspired by a major revolutionary scientific discovery, is a powerful anti-ageing program that works to reactivate and unleash your skin’s vital energy in four weeks. Skin’s energy is recharged to its optimal state, restoring its quintessential youth potential.

How does it work? The skin is a living organ that is able to regenerate itself every month by drawing on the vital energy that runs through and fuels its cells daily. This vital energy allows the cells to protect themselves, adapt, correct internal dysfunction and to detoxify themselves. It is a treasure of immense value that protects the skin and reveals its beauty, radiance and youth.

However since skin cells are subject to the laws governing energy variation, they lose their ability to regenerate and restore themselves over the years and during intense periods of stress, environmental aggressions or hormonal changes. This leads to poorer function and the cells’ vital mechanisms are slowly damaged. Skin lacking in vital energy ages more quickly, becomes more marked and loses its natural radiance.

Sisleÿa La Cure is formulated with 19 powerful plant extracts that include gingko biloba leaf, mariposa blanca rhizome, peony, Persian acacia, Centella asiatica and more.

Sisley Research is now presenting a cutting-edge response to target the source of skin’s youth. Taking inspiration from a major medical discovery about the mitochondria (2016 Nobel Prize), Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge La Cure is a four-week programme intended to restart the fundamental cell mechanisms one by one. Designed to be used mornings and evenings for four weeks, the skin’s quality and radiance is restored, transformed through deep and intense regeneration.

In conclusion, three essential mechanisms ensure that the mitochondria and the cell life cycle function correctly.

Let’s take a closer look at mitochondria, which are components found at the heart of skin cells. The mitochondria lie in the heart of skin cells and is in charge of taking energy from the food we eat and turning it into energy that the skin cells can use to regenerate.

1. Producing the necessary energy
Mitochondria perform a fundamental role in that they ensure proper cellular function by supplying cells with the energy they need to regenerate. But the mitochondria deteriorate as they experience stress and aging, thereby reducing the cell’s production of vital energy. This expedites the production of free radicals, which causes damage to the cells and therefore encourages premature aging of the skin.

2. Transporting and circulating energy
As dynamic structures, the mitochondria interact with each other to correctly transport vital energy deep within the cell. When this network is properly connected, the energy can circulate freely. However, the mitochondria fragment when damaged, leading to poor connections, reduced energy efficiency and poorly supplied cells.

3. Detoxifying and recycling by eliminating defective components
The 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine highlighted cells’ ability to trigger a process in which defective components destroy themselves. To stop the cell from becoming poisoned, the damaged mitochondria self-destroy. It therefore appears essential to promote the elimination of defective mitochondria to allow healthy cells to soak up energy and the skin to regenerate.

Sisleÿa La Cure has therefore been programmed to last the exact same time to restart the skin’s vital mechanisms and ensure a real upsurge in the results obtained. Each week, each of the four flacons of the energy-saturated treatment unlocks the mechanisms that allow the skin to renew and regenerate itself by acting gradually to restore its quintessential youth potential.

Three actions:
1. Protection of the mitochondria
2. Reconnection of the mitochondrial network
3. Elimination of the damaged mitochondria

Four weeks:
You should start to see a difference by week one, as the La Cure formula works on revitalizing skin cells and its energy levels for more radiant-looking skin. By week two, your skin will start to look softer and smoother as the formula works on eliminating dead parts of the skin cells. Week three is all about protecting the now healthy skin cells, which will help improve your skin’s elasticity and stave away signs of ageing. The last week of the treatment wraps up all the good work that La Cure has done over the past few weeks, resulting in skin that is glowing and invigorated.

Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge La Cure is an exclusive anti-aging program designed to be used alone thanks to its innovative texture that transforms upon application. One unique formula, four bottles, four weeks, four key stages, for visible benefits each week, until your skin is reborn.

Sisley Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge La Cure is meant to be a month-long treatment, with each pack containing four flacons, one to be used each week, and is available at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Sisley.
