Acne solutions and tips!

June is Acne Awareness Month and whether you have a teen suffering or you have developed adult acne help is at hand.

Advancements in skincare mean that now we can manage it very well with topical products and in clinic laser treatments. BBL and Moxi is a great stacking system of laser for helping with pigmentation and acne scarring also.

Here are some tips.

Cleanse gently: Use a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser twice a day. Avoid harsh scrubbing which can irritate the skin and worsen acne.

Moisturise: Even if you have oily skin, it's important to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated.

Spot treatments: Use over-the-counter treatments containing salicylic acid for targeted treatment of pimples.

Avoid touching your face: Keep your hands off your face to prevent transferring oils and bacteria from your hands to your skin.

Avoid excessive sun exposure: While some sun can help with acne, too much can worsen it and increase the risk of skin cancer. Use a non-comedogenic sunscreen.

Regularly clean items that touch your face: Change pillowcases, towels, and face cloths frequently to avoid bacteria build-up.
