Acnelan Skin Peel
If you’re looking for a treatment that is solely dedicated to clearing acne, than look no further than our Acnelan skin peel. This ultimate acne treatment follows 3 simple steps to providing you with acne-free skin. The first step consists of a mask to exfoliate, remove excess oil and reduce inflammation. A post-peel neutralising spray is then used to balance and soothe the skin. The treatment is finished off with pore sealing shield which helps to tighten the pores and smooth the skin. A course of treatments is usually recommended for optimum results.
Dermapen is a great treatment that can be used for both acne and acne scarring. The hand held machine uses disposable needles that pass across the skin making small punctures. These in turn encourage the skin to make collagen and repair the damage, leaving you with visibly clearer skin.
Pixel laser is another treatment that works really well for acne, as well as acne scarring. This resurfacing skin treatment creates small wounds on the skin, which encourages the skins natural healing process and stimulates the production of new skin cells. The treatment works to improve the tone and texture of skin, resulting in clearer smooth skin.
LED Luminous Lift
The LED Luminous Lift boasts many great qualities by using a rainbow of different light frequencies, that each have their own unique benefits to the skin. However, this relaxing treatment can be great for acne prone skin as its blue light frequency has impressive anti-bacterial properties which help to calm the skin and reduce acne.
The food that we put inside our bodies can have great impacts on our skin, certain foods will trigger breakouts, whereas other foods contain vitamins that can help to reduce them. Read on to find out which foods you should avoid, and which you should incorporate more of into your diet.
Foods to avoid
If you suffer from acne then we recommend cutting out both dairy and sugar from your diet. Dairy ood, such as milk, contains hormones that encourage your skin to produce more oil, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Similarly, sugar causes our blood sugar levels to increase, which in turn means the body creates more insulin. This can increase the sebum production and the pore size, worsening acne for those that suffer.
Foods to include in diet
Although some foods should be avoided if you suffer with acne, there are also lots of great foods that can help to reduce the symptoms. Fish is great to include in your diet as it contains high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce inflammation and breakouts. Ensuring you are also eating lots of fruit and vegetables is ideal for acne prone skin as they naturally help to clear the blemishes over time.
