Acne

Serving Hamilton, Stoney Creek, Grimsby and surrounding areas

General Measures:

  • Wash your face twice daily with a mild cleanser
  • Avoid getting oily products on your skin (e.g. gel, mousse, hair spray and oil)
  • Use a minimum amount of hair conditioner on the ends of your hair if you need it
  • Do not use heavy moisturizers or creams on your face
  • Use only oil free (not water based) foundation
  • Use non-comedogenic make-up
  • Foods have never been proven to make acne worse
    • Although if you find a specific food that aggravates your acne, you should avoid it
  • Do not pick, scratch, pop or squeeze your pimples because this will cause scarring

Treatment:
