Luckily there are many ways to get rid of blemishes fast. Try these tips:
Green clay is another product some sources suggest for acne. Not only is it remineralizing and purifying, it is also known for its absorbent, scar-reducing and disinfecting properties. That makes it the perfect weapon against dreaded surprise blemishes. Here’s what you do: combine a bit of clay with some mineral water, apply the mixture to the pimples and let it dry overnight as you enjoy your beauty sleep.
Acne-prone skin is normally quite sensitive and requires special care. So here is what NOT to do:
Do you have questions about dermo-cosmetics formulated for acne-prone skin? Come and speak with your beauty consultant for answers.
Do you have questions about acne? Talk to your family pharmacists. They can help you achieve healthy, radiant skin. They can prescribe* medications for certain minor health problems, including acne, when the treatment and diagnosis are already known. A consultation will also be required so the pharmacist can make sure you meet the prescribing criteria.
