Tip #1 

Once you've found the right products for your skin, the most important thing is to apply them daily. Consistency is synonymous with effectiveness!

Tip #2

You can wear make-up when you have pimples, as long as you use non-comedogenic make-up and remove your make-up EVERY NIGHT! A little makeover has several advantages: first, you have the opportunity to camouflage your imperfections for greater peace of mind. Second, when you wear make-up, you’re much less likely to pick at your pimples! 


Tip #3

There is no secret. To feel better about yourself, it’s important to gain peace of mind. In this case, exercise can become your best friend!   Exercising improves your health, helps you sleep better, eliminates toxins more easily and reduces stress. All these good things contribute to better skin quality!

Do you have a question or concern? We’re always here for you

This is sometimes true, especially in the case of hormonal teenage blemishes. On the other hand, it’s possible for blemishes to persist into adulthood. In this case, women are mainly affected. Hormonal changes (e.g. pregnancy) are triggers for blemishes, as well as UV radiation, dust and air pollution—all of which can influence blemishes. It’s important to react quickly and not to hesitate to consult a health professional in order to get good advice.

When it comes to blemish scars, it is better to prevent. Getting rid of them is a long and costly process, involving laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion... The best option is therefore to have a well-adapted and effective anti-blemish routine. The less blemishes there are, the less scars there will be!
Fortunately, there are dual-action skin care products that reduce the appearance of blemishes, and hyperpigmentation of dark marks, such as the Comedomed Moisturiser.

Wearing a mask can " suffocate " your skin. the skin, which can make it more susceptible to blemishes.
Our advice: Hygiene is essential, both morning and evening. Reinforce the skin's hydration, but with products for oily or blemish-prone skin that will moisturise while reducing imperfections and limiting their reappearance. And make sure you wear a clean mask every day, as it can become saturated with cosmetics and creams, which will make it more irritating and comedogenic.
