Weather and Acne
During the summer months, it is crucial to keep skin clean of excess oils and sweat.
Avoid cleaning the skin with harsh chemicals at this time of year. Stripping the skin's natural acid mantle will trigger more sebum production, thus stimulating an outbreak.
The same concept must be followed for the dryness experienced in winter months. It is tempting for clients to neglect to use a moisturizer during the winter. But even acneic skin needs moisturizer - it just needs to be non-comedogenic.
Suggestion - increase your intake of essential fatty acids by supplementing your diet with primrose or flaxseed oils. This will help break up fatty deposits that block pores and restore healthy tissue.
At Sensational Skin Care we are extensively and continuously trained in the latest techniques, treatments, products, and technologies to provide the most advanced skin care available.
