The skin condition acne is not always easy to diagnose.
But it is sometimes hard to spot when acne symptoms are starting to show up.
A new study has found that the skin care brand UltaSkin cream may be a good way to help people with acne see and feel their skin in a clearer and more effective way.
For the study, published in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology, researchers used skin creams from Ulta, Sephora, and L’Oreal to examine acne symptoms and the impact they had on their skin’s appearance.
They also looked at how well the products could help people manage their skin condition and find out whether they could help prevent acne.
UltaSkin is a moisturiser, but in this study it was applied to the face in a cream-type cream form to reduce breakouts and reduce redness.
The researchers found that, overall, the products reduced redness, pimples, and irritation on the face, but not on the upper arms or shoulders.
It may also help with a condition called alopecia, in which the skin becomes redder and more irritated, says lead author Julie Jorgensen, an associate professor of cosmetic and ophthalmology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“We are seeing that the sun is playing a role in exacerbating these conditions, so it may help to remove some of the risk factors,” she says.
Some of the cream products also contained antioxidants, and one, for instance, had a natural anti-aging ingredient called rhodiola rosea.
So, although the products are marketed to help with acne, Jorgenson says, they can help to manage a condition which is likely to get worse over time.
She says that the results show that cosmetic creams can be a “powerful tool” to help manage acne.
“They are an effective way to manage acne because they reduce inflammation and redness,” she explains.
“The key is to make sure that they are applied correctly and moisturised in a timely fashion, and to ensure they have the right amount of sunscreen.”
Ultas skin cream is available in most stores and on Ulta.com, and it costs $39.99 a tube.
