Christine Heathman of Glymed Plus said it best when she introduced the acne category at the 2018 Skin Games!  When she spoke of acne she made us aware that it’s much more than treating and changing skin, it’s changing lives!  When you help someone treat acne, and eliminate breakouts, you not only give them clear skin – you give them a whole new level of confidence.  

We’re talkin’ – B E Y O N C E   S T R U T T I N G – level confidence!

The Many Factors Of Acne

But treating acne is so damn hard!  There are so many things that can cause the breakouts, the redness and the flare ups!  You really need a strong skill level, a good knowledge of treatment protocols, a strong knowledge of home care products and you need to have really good client communication. You need to know their lifestyle:  eating habits, work / life balance, stress levels, medical history, home care program, hobbies and excercise habits!  

Advice From Our Experts

Our June Guest Blogger – Stephanie Rae gave us some great advice for working with acne clients.  Her tips had a lot to do with foods that can lead to acne flare ups!

Stephanie’s Expert Advice Column drew a lot of attention because she spoke about foods that can cause flare ups.  This is so important.  You need to have great client communication in order to treat the whole person, not just their skin. Often times systemic issues manifest in the skin – so focusing on the whole person will help you treat one part of them.

Treatments and Products

Where do we start?  Enzymes, acids, and microdermabrasion: there are so many ways to attack acne.  Then there’s the home care products.  There are so many options!  We reached out to our collective of skincare gurus and asked them for some options to treat acne! They sent us some really remarkable products and treatments!
