Acne Information

Acne Vulgaris is a very common skin condition, predominately seen in western cultures. It is primarily caused from four factors:

  • Excess dead skin cells
  • Excess oil production
  • Bacteria
  • Inflammation

Current clinical evidence suggests there is a link between milk consumption, high GI diets and obesity. It is therefore recommended that in order to gain the most out of any skin care regime and treatment plan, that implementation of lifestyle changes is advised.

  • Decrease milk consumption
  • Low GI diet GI<70
  • Regular exercise

Commitment to a prescribed cosmeceutical skincare range in addition to general skin health will optimise treatment results:

  • Avoid picking or scratching the skin
  • Keep skin clean and protected from the sun with SPF 50+
  • Wash hair prior to face
  • Change pillow case regularly
  • Avoid wearing caps or headband that occlude the skin
  • Keep hair off the face
  • Wash hands prior to touching the face
