Wren Whitehead, meet your whitehead player!

  1. Do you have pimples with a white center?

Whiteheads are one of the easiest players to spot! 

An acne whitehead, also known as a closed comedo, is a type of acne lesion that forms when a hair follicle becomes clogged with a mixture of oil, dead skin cells, and sometimes bacteria. It appears as a small, white or flesh-colored bump on the skin’s surface. The term “whitehead” comes from the fact that the top of the clogged follicle is closed or sealed, preventing the trapped material from being exposed to the air.

Whiteheads are considered non-inflammatory acne lesions and are generally less severe than other types of acne, such as pimples or cysts. They are usually more easily treated and are less likely to cause scarring. Proper skincare and acne treatments, including topical medications, can help manage and prevent the formation of whiteheads.

[VS] Playbook: Defensive Whitehead Strategy

Am | PM Sulfur| Charcoal Soap

  • Benefits of Sulfur:
    • Tackles acne and blemishes head-on.
    • Intercepts excess oil production.
    • Assists in unclogging pores for a clear complexion.
  • Benefits of Charcoal:
    • Draws out impurities like a defensive line.
    • Acts as a purifying agent for a deep clean.
    • Absorbs excess sebum, leaving skin feeling refreshed.

PM  Sulfurbenz 

 Here are some key benefits of benzoyl peroxide:

  1. Antibacterial Properties:
    • Benzoyl peroxide is effective against Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that contribute to the development of acne. It helps eliminate these bacteria, reducing inflammation and preventing new breakouts.
  2. Exfoliation and Unclogging Pores:
    • It has exfoliating properties that help remove dead skin cells, preventing them from clogging pores. By promoting cell turnover, benzoyl peroxide aids in keeping pores clear and reducing the formation of blackheads and whiteheads.
  3. Reduction of Inflammation:
    • Benzoyl peroxide possesses anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce redness and swelling associated with acne lesions. This can contribute to a quicker healing process.

Coach Notes: if you have never used Benzoyl Peroxide we recommend doing a patch test on your skin. Leave on 15 minutes and wash off the first 2-3 evenings when starting. If you have no reactions, then you can leave on overnight.

  • Execution:
    • Apply 3%-5% Sulfurbenz in the evening.
    • Execute a 15-minute waiting period for optimal penetration of Sulfurbenz 
    • Follow up with our Oil-free Moisturizer for a well-rounded defense.

 

Coach’s Corner Tips: 

  1. If your skin is getting too dry- switch to [VS] Aloe Butter Soap.
  2. If clearing is difficult and you have oily skin you can use Sulfurbenz in the AM every other day for additional playtime, waiting 15 minutes for optimal penetration before moisturizer and sunscreen.
