Answer

Hi there, Stress can definitely be a trigger when it comes to acne related concern. Stress also causes inflammation in the body that will manifest itself on the skin.  You would need to visits one of our Medical doctors at our clinics, so that they can analyse your skin and make their recommendation.  Products such as Lamelle Clarity range will help to clear up some of the acne, but is in important to first treat the trigger- inflammation.

I think I may be getting breakouts from my makeup, but I need makeup to cover my breakouts. It’s also painful to apply makeup to my spots. Is there a brand I can use that’s skin-friendly or do I have to go without makeup for a while until my skin clears?

Question

I am on Spiractin for my hormonal acne, and it used to work really well. My skin was very clear for most of the month. But then I took a few months break of it while I changed doctors, and my acne came back. I’ve since gone back on it, but the effect isn’t the same. Is this because of the break or is it something else?
