Acne is an inflammatory condition and minimizing inflammation is key! Here are a few extra tips to help minimize breakouts:
- Avoid touching your face throughout the day
- Change your pillowcase on a regular basis
- Wash your hands before cleansing your face
- Try an anti-inflammatory diet
Feel free to refer to our FAQ page and under each product in the shop to see how to incorporate the products altogether. And don’t worry! Sensitivity, redness, dryness and possibly purging (one in four people experience purging aka increased breakouts) are not unexpected as you start to use certain products. It can take 6-8 weeks to adjust to a skincare regimen. *If your acne is moderate or severe, it is probably best to be seen in-person so that a skincare specialist can put you on a tailored regimen with prescription topicals/medications.
