BLITZ PROB­LEM SKIN

Don’t let adult acne bring you down. The skin doc will see you now …

Women's Health Australia - - BEAUTY & STYLE - By Deanna Pai

There’s noth­ing more frus­trat­ing than learn­ing the hard way that break­outs don’t nec­es­sar­ily end with your teenage years. Sigh. In fact, one-third of to­tal acne vis­its to der­ma­tol­o­gists in the Western world are made by women over the age of 25.

Want to rein in prob­lem skin? We rec­om­mend mak­ing an ap­point­ment with your GP as a first move. That way, you can rule out or treat any hor­monal health con­di­tions, such as poly­cys­tic ovary syn­drome (PCOS), which can cause bad break­outs.

Need a derm on speed-dial now? En­ter Dr Pim­ple Pop­per, aka der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr San­dra Lee, whose wildly pop­u­lar zit-pop­ping, black­head-ex­tract­ing Youtube videos have hit vi­ral sta­tus. We asked Lee, with a lit­tle help from our beauty ex­pert at WH, to an­swer a host of com­mon acne-re­lated ques­tions to get un­ruly skin back on track.
