If there is one thing I learned over the years it is that your skincare is key! Ever since I was in middle school, I have been battling acne. When I was in middle school + high school it was acne on my face…primarily on my cheeks + forehead. Fast forward to now, my acne has spread from my chin + jaw line all the way to my chest, back + arms…UGH! Nothing is more frustrating than trying product after product with no visible results. What is a girl to do? Try one more line of products…and bam I found a winner!
La Roche Posay!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting the team behind my favorite skincare brand, La Roche Posay in person at a #DermClass they hosted with Dermstore. The event was beyond fun because it included an educational panel specifically talking about acne lead by Dermatologist Annie Chiu. Dr Chiu answered questions from attendees along with questions some of you shared with me on social!
I learned from her chat with us a few things and I am sharing them below!
1.Acne can affect people of all ages
2.While most people experience acne as teens, in adulthood it can continue but while as a teen acne is primarily found in your T-Zone area, as an adult it can spread to your chin, jawline + even your body all thanks to hormones
3.Acne scars should be combatted right away to prevent further deeper scars. Dr. Chiu’s suggestion was to see a dermatologist to go on either medication or try laser treatments. The longer it goes untreated, the worse it can be
4.While diet isn’t specifically tied to acne, if you live a healthy lifestyle it definitely helps when avoided acne
5.La Roche Posay products help combat acne without ever drying your skin (P.S. La Roche Posay was started in a hospital…who would have thought!
Fun Fact: The La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is my absolute favorite spot treatment. It legit works wonders!
