antibiotics can have unwanted side effects. As a starting
point, Michelle's advice is simple, "Always see your GP or
dermatologist as it could be hormonal or cystic."
At home Michelle emphasises the importance of
a "good, clean, skincare routine", and there are plenty
of new products specifically devised to help treat acne.
Dermalogica use microbiome-friendly technology in the
Age Bright Clearing Serum, which contains salicylic acid
and niacimide to reduce breakouts. The two-in-one Age
Bright Spot Fader is a companion product that reduces
scarring and evens out skin tone. Don't overlook hydration:
Vichy's Normaderm Phytosolution Double Correction
Daily Care is a moisturiser with anti-inflammatory
ingredients and probiotic bifudus to help improve the
skin's barrier function. To nip an eruption in the bud,
a discreet patch from ZitSticka will deliver active
ingredients directly to the area using microdart technology
to diffuse the inflammation. Skinsmith's own Clarifying
Exfoliator contains kaolin clay and fruit extracts to draw
out impurities and resurface the skin.
Skin complaints often reflect underlying health and
emotional issues. One natural method that goes beyond
skin deep is a jade massage tool. It's a good way to reduce
surface inflammation and draw out the tensions in the
lymphatic system. Using a gua sha, press and hold the
cool, flat side against the affected area for relief. The
Beauty Restorer Precision by Hayo'u is perfect for targeting
individual spots. Avoid rubbing them directly as this will
spread bacteria, instead, move the tool in outward strokes
around the pimple to draw out the infection. You might be
surprised at the results, and give it a try on wrinkles, too.

eauty might be considered a superficial
concern, but anyone living with a skin
condition will tell you it affects self-esteem
and mental health, too. Far from being
a teenage problem, acne is actually increasing in
adult women. Dodging this blight in youth only to
experience it later is unfair.
One of the charms of acne is the scarring that's
left behind after outbreak, making clear skin an
elusive goal. It's a phenomenon that Michelle
Gullis, national trainer at Skinsmiths (skinsmiths.
com) clinics in London is familiar with. "Three out of 10 clients come to us with this
particular concern, especially between the ages of 24 and 30".
The causes of acne are myriad, but we know that the p.acnes bacteria, hormones and
stress play a part. Unfortunately traditional treatment methods like the pill, Roaccutane and
