Acne

Products which are suitable for oily or acne-prone skin include:

1. Cleansers-deep clean and exfoliating, 2. Oil-free Moisturisers and Sunscreens, 3. Vitamin B (Niacinamide) Serums, 4. Vitamin A serums, 5. Exfoliating Serums and Masks, and 6.Mineral Make-Up.

The importance of good skincare and mineral make-up in the management of acne is often critically under rated. Many skin conditions are actually caused by damaging ingredients found lurking in seemingly harmless cosmetics, so a thorough audit of your skincare regime is necessary to ensure you are correctly looking after your skin every single day, as well as providing a good foundation for your clinical treatments. We recommend cosmeceutical skincare from our Obagi, Synergie and Osmosis ranges, which contain biologically active ingredients to control blemishes and clear skin quickly.

Acne Dos and Dont's:

• Cleanse the face twice a day with cool to lukewarm water. Do not use hot water as this can cause additional drying. 

• Do not use a washcloth, loofah, or other abrasive scrub, as this will further inflame the skin.

• Avoid excessive touching of the skin.

• Never pick or squeeze acne lesions as this can cause infection and scarring.

•Many hair products – including shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, hair gel, wax – may
 cause acne if they are accidentally exposed to the facial skin or if the hair has frequent contact with the skin. Products that contain oils to create shine or for moisturisng the hair are especially prone to causing this type of acne.

• Avoid creamy moisturisers, sunscreens and night creams as they tend to clog pores and aggravate acne.

• Sunscreen/sunblock should be worn every day, preferrably Zinc or Titanium based products
