Hi guys, this is Eva from Bay Harbour Med Spa. And this is a question that I get quite often not only from you guys that ask me the question but it happens also a lot of times that my clients come and have this problem. How to treat pimples on the back of the arms. A lot of you can relate to it, this part of the arm is bumpy, you have pimples. Sometimes pimple happen on the thighs or the upper thighs and the question is how to treat it. Well,.
It’s not an easy treatment, because the pimples most of the time on the skin come because the skin, the follicles in the back of the arm is congested. And you know skin is porous so skin does breathe, this is why you buy for instance shoes and you buy leather shoes, your feet will not stink and if you buy plastic shoes your feet will stink. Why Because plastic is a plastic, it does not breathe but shoes that are made out of leather they do breathe so they let air through so you won’t, your feet won’t stink most of the time. Well, same.
Thing, so this is skin, skin is porous. And there are follicles most people don’t have hair here, but we have follicles. Very often these follicles are congested. So one is from congestion, that this is congested, the other reason can be hormonal. When at times your hormones are off balance and your diet at times can be off balance or when I say diet is actually elimination from your body is out of balance, you will get congestion on areas where the pores are not open, where you don’t have hai r but the skin is dry,.
Flaky, the sebum that’s there cannot come out and then it just stays trapped under the skin, because if you touch it theres little little bumps, and the little bumps are actually fats that have deposited underneath, so there are a few reasons why this happens. There is actually only one really treatment and approach to this, to get rid of it is to open the skin and help it to come out. So how do you open the skin So my suggestion would be if you came to the clinic I would say ok, let’s do microderm abrasion, you know, microderm.
Abrasion. I would do an brate your skin with the crystals, you know, crystals, microderm abrasion. However, if that’s not possible, then there’s a twofold approach that I would have for you. It’s using microderm abrasion crystals that you can get from me and using an AHA acid or mandelic acid. So what’s the difference Well, if you are totally white, let’s say like me and your skin is white, then you would want to buy the AHA acid which is made out of glycolic acid and some other ingredients. If however, you are tan, you.
Are hispanic, you are middle eastern, arabic, you are indian, you are african, you are black, you are caribbean and your skin is darker, then you would want to use the microderm abrasion and mandelic acid. The two acids are different and approach the skin differently. Mandelic acid, I formulated for people with darker pigmented skin. So you can use it safely to not destroy the pigment of your skin, it won’t irritate your skin, however, if you have darker pigmented skin you don’t want to use the AHA glycolic acid because the molecule structure.
Of the glycolic acid is much smaller than the mandelic acid and that can irritate and could be discoloring the skin. So you don’t want to use it. If you have darker pigmented skin you want to use microderm abrasion and mandelic acid. If you are fair, white, russian, scandinavian, polish, irish, then you can use the AHA glycolic acid what you would do at home is twice a week you would apply the acid with a q tip and you would put it all over the area, you would leave it on for 10 minutes you would then take the nutrilizer.
Which is in there, mix it, and you would nutrilize it by washing it off with the nutrilizer. And then day after you do the manelic acid, you would use the microderm abrasion scrub and you would abrate the skin and you would do this on an ongoing basis. And you would also make sure that you moisturize the skin and the best moisturizer is a neutral moisturizer or aromatherapy oil that I have, but if you have at home a neutral moisturizer you can use that, but that’s what I would use. So twice a week I would do the mandelic acid.
Or glycolic acid and twice a week I would do the microderm abrasion, I would do first the mandelic acid or glycolic acid and then the next day I would do the microderm abrasion scrub, abrate it, and so what you do is you with the mandelic acid, you help to remove the skin slowly, the cells, and then the microderm abrasion goes deeper and you scrub it and it goes deeper into the pores. And now the pores are uncongested that are already open the dry skin is off and now the crystals can go in and abrate it and slough it and allow.
