What is Acne?
Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults. It affects 10% of the world’s population. This frustrating skin condition happens when hair follicles clog up with oil, bacteria and dead skin cells.
It causes pimples mainly on the face, chest, shoulders and upper back. The good news is that with the right acne skincare routine (and diet) you can improve and control a breakout.
Acne Skincare Routine
Prevention is always better than cure, so make sure you follow a good routine on a daily basis:
- Always wash your face thoroughly
- Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day. Know your skin type and choose products accordingly
- Never forget SPF
- Try not to touch your face
- Limit makeup.
Make sensible lifestyle choices to support your acne skincare routine:
- Avoid sugary food
- Eat natural products – never choose fast food
- Avoid dairy products
- Add turmeric to your food – it contains curcumin. This is a potent antioxidant known to prevent inflammation
- Drink plenty of water
- Eat dark chocolate!
For mild acne breakouts and scarring choose a SkinBase Microdermabrasion facial. This exfoliating treatment minimises the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads for fresher skin.
A non-invasive procedure Microdermabrasion resurfaces and rejuvenates the face. The handy vacuum sucks up all the dead skin and debris so it doesn’t end up back on the face. Every time you go for a treatment you will get deeper into the layers of skin speeding up cell turnover. So why not book a course – your skin will thank you for it!
