The Skin Doc­tor Says

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty -

Dr Pa­tri­cia Yuen, Pa­cific Health­care

Spe­cial­ist Cen­tre, Paragon “Ch­eryl’s ir­reg­u­lar pe­ri­ods could sig­nal a hor­mone im­bal­ance which may be a cause of her acne break­outs.

She also has post-inam­ma­tion pig­men­ta­tion. She should use sun­screen, min­imise sun ex­po­sure and avoid squeez­ing her pim­ples – squeez­ing causes the pig­ment-pro­duc­tion cells to be­come ac­tive. Ch­eryl can try a top­i­cal retinoid gel to pre­vent se­bum from clog­ging her pores. Oil-free, min­eral pow­ders are suit­able for her skin type. For cleansing, an an­tibac­te­rial, oil­free or sal­i­cylic acid prod­uct is best.”
