One of the most interesting blog posts to date - did you know that the place you develop acne and breakouts can be directly linked to certain problems. This week we were introduced me to a whole new (actually old) science of face mapping, which is pretty much the key to unlocking the mysteries behind problem skin.
Face mapping combines Ayurveda and ancient Chinese medicine with cutting edge dermatologists’ prescriptions to explain how certain parts of your face are connected to other areas of your body. Put simply, think of your face as a map and blemishes as X’s on that landscape. Spots in different zones correspond to different problems. So, with this “map” as your guide, you can address the underlying causes of blemishes and not only make the unsightly zits vanish but also treat the underlying health problem in time.

We keep coming back to this subject because it’s one of the most common questions people our SkinBase therapists are asked: How can I treat acne scarring and in future prevent, acne?
Everyone wants to look and feel great, but acne is definitely something which can make all of us think twice about how we look (even the most confident amongst us!)
Lots of articles only talk about acne in its worse case scenario, but its important to understand that mild acne (that’s spots to you and I!) can be just as debilitating for our confidence and attractiveness levels.Read More

The pesky blackhead is a common problem. But can we ever really get rid of them?
Blackheads are simply blocked pores caused by the overproduction of oil (sebum) from the sebaceous glands in the skin. This natural substance keeps the skin lubricated but too much of it can cause a build-up in the pores. When exposed to the air they simply turn black. Over a period of time the pores begin to enlarge and are therefore vulnerable to becoming blocked again and again, so blackheads can be an ongoing problem.
Keeping up a good skincare regime is vital to stopping blackheads, but if you want to try and get rid of them all in just 30 minutes, read on!Read More
