We have noticed at Shine skin and body how many of you are at a loss as to what you can do about your skin. You have googled (toothpaste on your pimples??) used harsh products for oily/acne skin which made you red and irritated, went to a doctor and was given antibiotics or a dermatologist and recommended Roaccutane.
I want to start by telling you a story of a client who came to see me. She had been getting breakouts for about 2.5 yrs, mainly on her cheeks. her doctor recommended a dermatologist for her to see. She went on antibiotics for 2 years on and off. It would clear up her acne, only to return within a few months. When i saw her she had been to her dermatologist 3 days earlier who in desperation gave her a script for Roaccutane. (A very powerful acne drug with some very long lasting nasty side effects) She came to me as she didn’t want to take it, but didn’t know what to do. We did a full skin consultation with her and skin analysis. We went into depth about what happened when the acne occurred, medications, lifestyle, diet, hormones, skincare and make-up. I had a suspicion…. After starting her facial and doing a skin analysis my suspicion was right. It was her bronzer- It contained talc (as many do) and the most intense part of her breakouts was on her bronzer line. We extracted, she brought new make-up, came back for only 1 more facial and now her skin is clear. A proper consult diving into her history in a lot of depth was all that was needed.
And that is why we now have Shine Skin Solutions. It is a once of treatment that we then recommend your ongoing plan.
