When you are ready to commit, put in the effort, because it is NOT an easy thing to do, doing the work, it takes to gain control over acne is key to success, and of course the right products. Let me help you take the guess work out of it and educate you to success.
The Right Products
I can’t tell you how many times my clients were using products that were not right for their skin type or skin issues. Just because it says its for ACNE doesn’t mean it will be right for you. The other thing I realized is 99% of my clients have no clue as to what those products are doing to the skin let alone to the acne.
Is It NORMAL TO BE RED, IRRITATED & PEELING?
Treating Acne can often lead to red, irritated, and flaky skin. This is one of the toughest parts of treating acne. However, not everyone will experience a lot of it, but know it is a temporary thing. Understanding that it takes time to get used to some products and adjustments are key to dealing with these issues. There is no way possible to know ahead of time how someone will respond to a product. It’s important to let the skin adjust to the products, so as time goes by there are less and less side effects. It’s not fun to go through, but the process almost always requires the peeling of the skin to open up the clogged pores. You can do the process slowly and have fewer side effects, but then it can take longer to get acne under control. Going at the speed you can personally tolerate is best. Having these kinds of side effects are very normal. These mild side effects are generally not an allergic reaction.
If you think you are having an allergic reaction don’t hesitate to call upon a doctor immediately.
