See Dr Philippa McCaffery’s 6 top recommendations on how to get rid of acne and get your confidence back.
1. Avoid Moisturizers & cheap supermarket brands
Moisturisers are not great for people prone to breakouts. They clog pores and increase oiliness & cheap super market products don’t have sufficient active ingredients to make a difference in the skin.
2. Oil based makeup
Whilst makeup is fine to cover pimples, oil based makeup is a big no no. Mineral powder is much kinder to your pores while still giving you great cover.
Most acne prone skin likes to be regularly exfoliated. It is best to use low concentration glycolic or lactic peels or glycolic creams with microdermabrasion crystals.
Food culprits can include dairy and high glycemic index foods. Trial elimination of these to see if they are contributing to your breakouts.
5. Sun and Salt Water
Certain frequencies of light can help breakouts and salt water is a natural exfoliator. Do your skin a favour though and skip the UV light of the sun in favour of Clinic based LED Treatments which has the same effects.
6. Acne Treatment
If you have tried all of the above and nothing is clearing your skin, you should consider a more permanent solution like Dr McCaffery’s Acne Treatment.
