  • Dull
  • Dehydrated
  • Redness, Irritation, sensitivity

Adult Acne/Breakouts

Among the most common problems we treat are breakouts, spots and acne. Even though spots are very common in teenagers, don’t be tempted to ignore them thinking they’re a normal part of growing up. Even mild acne can have a significant negative impact on confidence. While extremely common in teenagers, we’re now also seeing a large increase in cases of adult acne. Adult acne can persist into your 30s or 40s. As acne can leave scars, it is very important to get treatment early and not try to fix it yourself with inappropriate over-the-counter remedies.

Accelerated Ageing

One thing that we cannot change is the natural ageing process. With time, we all get visible lines on our face. It is natural for our face to lose some of its youthful fullness. We notice our skin becoming thinner and drier. Our genes largely control when these changes occur. The medical term for this type of aging is “intrinsic aging.”

We can influence another type of aging that affects our skin. Our environment and lifestyle choices can cause our skin to age prematurely. The medical term for this type of aging is “extrinsic aging.” By taking some preventive actions, we can slow the effects that this type of aging has on our skin


We know that maintaining radiance isn't always easy, and the reality is there are reasons your skin is missing that so-called glow. Our skin constantly sheds dead cells, but if the process isn’t working efficiently, your complexion can take on a dull, unhealthy, tired appearance that emphasises wrinkles.


Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, results from an environmental lack of hydration (rather than genetic oil diminishment). This means your skin lacks the water it needs to remain healthy, resulting in an oily, sensitive, or dull skin tone. Your skin may contain plenty of oil, but there’s no water underneath to keep things balanced. To compensate for the lack of moisture, your skin may overproduce oil. As a result, your skin can feel dry and oily at the same time. Weird, right? This overproduction of oil can result in clogged pores, breakouts, irritation, dry patches, and, yes, those dreaded wrinkles 

In the real world, dehydrated skin is caused mostly by external factors such as Sun exposure, soaps, cosmetics, and diet.  

Redness, Sensitivity, Irritation

Rosacea is a very common, chronic facial skin problem in adults that many patients mistake for acne. It is more common in women than men and more common in fairer skin types compared to darker complexion. Rosacea can show up as ‘spotty breakouts’ (papules and pustules) and/or facial redness and broken capillaries.
