Nobody likes acne! Skin care products do not always provide the desired results. This leaves sufferers to turn to pore-clogging makeup to hide the bumps and blemishes. But these habits only worsen the appearance of acne and make it more difficult to feel confident.
Dermatologists offer many treatment options for patients suffering from acne, such as blue light therapy. This light-based treatment option utilizes the power of non-UV light to kill acne-causing bacteria that build up in the pores. Blue light therapy is an increasingly popular treatment that offers a safe and natural alternative to other acne solutions.
If you want to learn more about blue light therapy, contact Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia today.

Proper skin care keeps the skin looking young but it cannot always reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. That is why it is essential to protect your skin by incorporating sunscreen into your skin care routine. Make the most of your sunscreen application by following these tips to select the right type of sunscreen for your skin:
Determine Your Skin Type
Do you buy cleansers, moisturizers, and other skin care products made for a specific skin type? Many women and men look for skin care products that offer specifically what their skin needs, whether they have oily skin, dry skin, or some type of combination. Just like with any other skin care product, keep your skin type in mind when shopping for a new sunscreen. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, choose a noncomedogenic or oil-free sunscreen that will not clog your pores. If you have dry skin, choose a sunscreen with an added moisturizing element such as aloe.
Consider How Much Time You Spend Outdoors
Thinking about your skin type is an easy way to narrow down your sunscreen options. Now consider how much time you spend outdoors on a regular basis. People who spend more time outdoors require a more heavy-duty sunscreen than those who spend most of their time indoors. Invest in a stronger or water-resistant sunscreen to keep your skin protected during all outdoor time!
Meet with a Dermatologist
Once you have an idea of what type of sunscreen you need for your skin, you should schedule an appointment with a dermatologist. Talk to your dermatologist about your skin type, needs, preferences, and concerns you may have regarding sunscreen or other skin care products. Ask your dermatologist for any recommendations regarding specific product lines.
