Tips for best RESULTS
Skin with acne is difficult to combat because it can be hormonal or hereditory and resiliant to anything topical. Many clients with acne are under a dermatologist's care and may be on oral supplements to keep it under control.
Gently exfoliate using MicroDerma Scrub only once per week. This will remove crusty skin covering pores to allow your skin to breath and oxygen to kill the bacteria. Be careful not to over exfoliate.
Regularly change your face cloth, towel and pillow case. Always wash your face following your workout. Wipe down your headphones and phone regularly. Avoid touching your face. Don't pick or pop your pimples. Avoid wearing make-up and choose a quality mineral make-up if you must.
Ice your acne to bring swelling down. Wrap an ice cube in a soft tissue or cloth and apply it to your zit for 20-30 seconds at a time, a few times a day.
