At some point in our lives, we experience skincare problems. Whether it’s hormonal changes, lack of sleep, too much partying, stress or hereditary causes - zits, spots and acne can affect us all at every stage.
We’ve put together the most common skin problems for men and women and our recommendations on how best to tackle them.
Acne is typically caused by the interaction of bacteria, hormones and sebum (oil from the hair follicle). To help stop the build-up of acne it’s essential to keep the area cleansed as much as possible. Avoid skincare and makeup products with alcohol and additives as this can irritate the affected areas. Your daily routine should include cleansing, gentle exfoliation and moisturising. Use non-scented soaps and once in a while have a professional facial as the intense treatments and formulas can help to clean the skin. We recommend: Murad Gentle Blemish Control Clearing Treatment, Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser Normal or Combination Skin, Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator.
