That Darn Pimple!

Sometimes its just one, then its two and quite often you have a major breakout session.

Acne can stem from so many factors –  stress  & hormonal imbalances seem to be the top culprits!

Recently I went through a 3 month period where I had a major breakout on my forehead. I tried everything and nothing really seemed to work. I heard of  Dr. Jason Rivers at Vancouver Skin  and decided to get a referral to go in and see him. As he has a long waiting list I was given the option to come in and see their skin care specialist Melissa Baker. I went in and had a consultation with Melissa, who was extremely knowledgable and recommended La Roche-Posay. Now, La Roche-Posay is a brand that is world recognized and can be found in Shoppers Drugmart. The product she recommended though can only be purchased by a Dermatologists office.

The product she prescribed was La Roche-Posay trio treatment  Biomedic line – LHA (Lipo Hyroxy Acid). It consists of the Cleansing Gel, Pre Peel LHA Solution & LHA Serum. I was a little hesitant at first and ended up going with another line. As a few weeks went by my skin continued to breakout. I finally had enough and called her to come back in and pick up the Biomedic line and within 2 days my skin had cleared incredibly!

Not only did these products help with my Darn Pimples, they gave me a radiant glow. The line is known to also reverse signs of sun damage, fine lines, dark spots, premature aging & skin imperfections.

This line is one I highly recommend but advise you to consult with a specialist like Melissa Baker to make sure you use it properly. Melissa is not only well-trained but she is someone who makes you feel very comfortable from the first moment you meet her. She even called me a few weeks later to check in and see how things were going

For all my followers make sure to search the nearest  Dermalologist near you.

Another product I recommend that is less expensive and great for those one or two stubborn pimples is Doctor Burt’s Herbal Blemish Stick. It contains 10 natural herbal ingredients like Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Juniper Oils, and my fav Calendula! Calendula is amazing, it helps redness and inflammation. This is a product the guys will love too!

Calendula cream can also be bought in a tube and is great for skin conditions as well. A guy I know used it for Eczema on his hands and it helped soothe and moisturize.

Be sure to tell everyone and spread the word that you heard it from
