Skin Guide

 It is CRITICAL that you are aware of what your skin likes, dislikes, and what type of skin you have. Here at ADOH we specialize in acne-prone/problematic skin and eczema. So, to best assist you in your skincare journey I have provided a number of charts and guides to help you when choosing a product. The purpose of the skin guide is to educate potential and live-long clients about their skin types and conditions. By reviewing these charts one should be able to identify what skin type they have and what type of acne they have as well. Personal recommendations are still HIGHLY recommended!

The term “breakout” is used to describe all forms of acne. Not all types of acne spread across the skin.Clogged pores cause acne itself. These may be attributed to:

  • excess production of oil (sebum)
  • bacteria
  • hormones
  • dead skin cells
  • ingrown hairs

Acne is usually associated with hormonal fluctuations experienced during your teenage years, but adults can experience acne, too. Millions of people have acne, making it one of the most common skin conditions among both children and adults.

Identifying which type of acne you’re experiencing is key to successful treatment. Acne may be noninflammatory or inflammatory. Subtypes of acne within these two categories include:

  • blackheads
  • whiteheads
  • papules
  • pustules
  • nodules
  • cysts

Noninflammatory acne includes blackheads and whiteheads. These normally don’t cause swelling.

Salicylic acid is often marketed for acne in general, but it usually works best on noninflammatory acne. It naturally exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells that can lead to blackheads and whiteheads. Look for it in cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. However, ADOH can provide a solution, the NATURAL way!
