Acne awareness month

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!
