Here are the 5 things every acne patient should know before starting treatment:
- Gut Health
Imbalances in your gut can contribute to breakouts, mood imbalances, anxiety, and fatigue. Your brain, gut and skin are intimately connected so in the initial phases of your plan as well as throughout we will be addressing your gut and microbiome health.
- Change Doesn’t Happen Overnight
There is no overnight magic pill for acne (or any skin concern). It takes an average of 3-6 months to clear the skin and 3 or more months to clear active breakouts. Expect breakouts during your treatment but be patient, persistence pays off.
- Switch Things Up
As you progress through treatment and your skin changes it is important to switch up your skincare routine and your supplement routine in response. We will work together to ensure your regimen remains effective and continues to help you progress through the process.
- Compliance and Collaboration are Necessary
Compliance with your regimen is key to getting clear and staying there but we will work together as a team to help you achieve the results you desire. I genuinely care about you and your goals and will be there for you every step of the way.
- Expect Some Ups and Downs
Throughout this process you may experience some peeling, dryness and the occasional flare up. My team and I will work with you throughout your journey to keep it to a minimum and help you achieve healthy, glowing clear skin.
