Re: Living with spots for years

Thank you so much for your question. If you are constantly in a cycle of ongoing spots the first thing that needs to be looked at is the quality of your skincare. Aim to wash your face twice a day, morning and evening and use a moisturiser with the label "non-comedogenic" to help improve t...

Thank you very much for this interesting question about spots and make up. Whilst there is a specific form of acne known as "acne cosmetica", this usually occurs as result of heavy oil-based or greasy cosmetics or the use of some hair care products on the forehead or cheeks. However, the o...

Re: Microdermabrasion

Thank you so much for your question. Microdermabrasion effectively is an exfoliation type treatment that uses fine crystals to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells.

Re: Blackheads

Dear Louise, Many thanks for your question. Skin that is prone to blackheads often still needs moisturising but care should be taken to avoid thick, heavy-textured creams and in general terms stick to products that are light fluids or gels. When searching for a product, it can help to look for the l...
