“One of the key components of treating acne is exfoliation,” says Emma Hobson, education manager for the International Dermal Institute. “You must keep skin decongested at all times, and one of the key ingredients that can do that is salicylic acid.” “Keep the skin cool and away from heat, including very exerting exercise,” advises Hobson. She recommends yoga and Pilates. Make sure to also cut out smoking and limit alcohol and spicy food, as these bring heat to the skin.
