My skin is generally pretty clear but from time to time I get a spot either on my chin or jaw line with pimples? They tend to start as a painful bump and turn into a full blown pimple. Is there anything I can do to help when this happens or to help prevent these from happening?
Keeping your skin clear ( especially during the hot and humid summer months) can be a constant battle. We could all use a few pointers. To get the scoop, I consulted SKIN’s Medical Aesthetics Manager, Donna Lamarche. Donna has been with SKIN MediSpa since they first opened their doors and has treated just about every skin condition out there!
” With ongoing advancements in skin care products, it’s possible to significantly improve mild to moderate acne simply by using a skin care regimen with active, medical-grade ingredients. I recommend using a cleanser with salicylic or glycolic acid to wash off dead skin cells and excess oils and purify the skin. The next step should be toner followed by a lotion or serum with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. A Vitamin C serum applied in the morning gives skin a brightening and rejuvenating boost, and helps to combat the daily exposure to oxidants, stressors and pollutants. Finally, a light weight, oil- free sunscreen to protect from UV and to keep your skin hydrated should be considered. For extra protection, changing your pillowcase on a daily basis will help prevent the build up of sweat and dirt your skin is exposed to overnight.”
