Acne can affect people at many stages of adult life – it’s not just a problem for teenagers. The changes in the skin can have a dramatic effect on confidence and self-esteem so it’s important to treat the skin with high-quality treatments and products to effectively tackle all the underlying issues.
The most effective topical ingredients for unclogging pores are alpha and beta hydroxy acids and retinaldehyde. These help to normalise the exfoliation process inside pores, so helping to prevent blockage of the follicle that can cause blackheads and pimples. Topical application of Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) helps to reduce excess oil flow. Vitamin B3 also calms skin, accelerating healing time. Treating breakouts involves 4 steps: unclogging pores, controlling oil flow, treating acne bacteria (Propionbacterium acnes) and calming irritation. For exceptional results we would suggest using a combination of Obagi and Prescription Skincare, Skin Nutrition – Mesotherapy & Skin Peels (The Perfect Peel).
